A new iPad mini is reportedly on its way, but it may not be what you hoped for

Apple still hasn't given up on the iPad mini, a new report from China Times claims (via MacRumors) citing sources from Apple's supply chain. 

A new version of the iPad mini, which hasn't been updated since 2015, should arrive in the first half of 2019. But according to the report, the new iPad mini 5 will be a low-cost device, meaning it probably won't receive a major upgrade like the iPad Pro did in October.  

The iPad mini has been on its deathbed — but not quite dead — for a while now. Apple hasn't been updating it, but the company CEO Tim Cook mentioned it by name during the October event. This gave me (and other iPad mini fans, if there are any left at this point) some hope that the company Continue reading "A new iPad mini is reportedly on its way, but it may not be what you hoped for"

Don’t fret if your new iPad Pro arrives slightly bent, Apple says

Owners of the newest iPad Pro have noticed their devices are slightly bent.

Apple confirmed the strange warping issue, which affects the aluminium chassis of the iPad, to The Verge, but the company doesn't consider it a defect.

Apple said the subtle bend is a result of the manufacturing process, occurring after the device's metal and plastic components cool. 

The tech giant added that it shouldn't affect performance, nor should the bend worsen as time goes by. Still, if you find the bend annoying, you should be able to exchange or return the device to Apple or retailers. Read more...

This dongle turns your iPad into a touchscreen Mac (sort of)

Ever pick up your iPad and think about how much more you could get done on it if only it ran macOS? Now, a small red dongle turns that into a reality.

Luna Display by Astropad is a tiny dongle that connects your MacBook to an iPad wirelessly, turning the tablet into a second monitor for your laptop. However, with Apple’s long-awaited new Mac Mini now available, Luna Display tested whether its adapter would turn the new iPad Pro into a touchscreen display for the desktop Mac.

In a blog post and video posted below, Luna Display breaks down the result.

With the Luna Display dongle plugged into the Mac Mini, a user simply opens the Luna Display app on their iPad. The video output is then pushed over WiFi from the Mac Mini to the iPad. So, macOS isn’t actually running on the iPad, it’s just acting as a Continue reading "This dongle turns your iPad into a touchscreen Mac (sort of)"

What's super speedy, incredibly thin, weighs less than a pound, and is now on sale for $125 off its listing price? If you guessed the iPad Mini 4, you're correct. Give yourself a pat on the back and grab your own Mini 4 at Walmart.

We all know Apple deals don't happen extremely often. So when a product like the iPad Mini 4 goes from $399.99 down to $274.99, we just can't afford to miss it. (Hence why the Minis totally sold out a few weeks ago when Walmart took even just $100 off their listing price.)

Talk about an absolute bang for your buck. With a dual-core A8 processor chip, the Mini 4 is lightning fast. Plus, with 128GB of storage, you'll have zero trouble storing all of the apps, games, pictures, or videos you could ever need. The 7.9-inch Retina display gives you seriously Continue reading "Buy an iPad mini on sale for $125 off at Walmart"

This keyboard turns the new iPad Pro into a laptop with teeny-tiny bezels

Over the last couple of years, Apple has been pushing the iPad as a full-fledged laptop replacement — especially since the introduction of the iPad Pro.

Well, now you can take that a step further. Accessory maker Brydge has announced new keyboards for the latest home button-less iPad Pro, and by the looks of them, they really do turn Apple's tablet into a touchscreen-equipped laptop. 

Can you tell that's an iPad?

Details about the new keyboards (or even high-resolution photos) are absent. All we know is that they'll be shipping in "early 2019."

But Brydge has been doing this for a long time, and its keyboards for the iPad always looked and acted like the lower part of a laptop. But now that the iPad Pro's design has been simplified even more, the iPad Pro equipped with a Brydge keyboard looks almost exactly like Continue reading "This keyboard turns the new iPad Pro into a laptop with teeny-tiny bezels"

There are a number of Apple products on sale, such as the Apple MacBook (mid-2017) 12-inch laptop, which is priced at $999.99, or $400 off its list price. It seems that the previous generation is on sale now before the new MacBook Air 2018 model hits store shelves .

Here’s how the 2018 iPad Pros compare to the previous generation

Apple's new iPad Pros pack more screen into sleeker builds. 

Last year's 10.5-inch iPad Pro has been upgraded with a sharp 11-inch Liquid Retina display. The larger model still has a 12.9-inch screen, but it's thinner and weighs less. 

Apple slimmed down the bezels and killed the home button. Now, each iPad Pro uses a TrueDepth camera to unlock with Face ID, just like the iPhone XS, and are equipped with the new A12X Bionic Chip. They're pretty impressive — but should you buy one if you just bought an iPad last year? 

Here's how the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro stacks up against the previous generation. Read more...

The iPad Mini 4 is finally back in stock at Walmart and on sale for $125 off — the best we’ve seen in a while

Hey, remember two months ago when we let everyone know that the iPad Mini 4 was $100 off at Walmart? And remember when that deal was so good that it sold out ASAP and was chilling with an "Out of stock" notice for weeks?

If you missed out, your patience has paid off: It's back in stock and $25 less than it was during that already awesome sale, meaning you can score an iPad Mini 4 on sale for just $274.99

The Mini 4 features Apple's dual-core A8 processor chip, meaning you're getting the speed and internal handling of most new iPhones and bigger iPads. That 128 GB of storage means all of your heavy duty apps, games, and the shit ton of pictures that you'll be taking Continue reading "The iPad Mini 4 is finally back in stock at Walmart and on sale for $125 off — the best we’ve seen in a while"

There’s still a chance for the iPad mini to become the best iPad ever

At yesterday's iPad event, despite a late-hour rumor to the contrary, Apple didn't announce a new iPad mini. 

But the company didn't kill it, either. The 3-year old iPad mini 4 even got a mention from Tim Cook, which sounds minor but it's important for a company that obsesses over details. 

This means that the iPad mini is still in the game, and that there's still a chance for Apple to give it an update down the road. And a Home button-less iPad mini with Face ID, tiny bezels and updated internals could very well become the best iPad Apple has ever created.

Apple is slowly squeezing even more out of customers

It’s getting even more expensive to use Apple products.

At Tuesday’s Apple event in Brooklyn, the Cupertino-based tech giant unveiled the next generation of the iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini. Each updated device is more powerful than ever, with multiple add-on options that further enhance performance. Of course, those higher-end features come at a price. And Apple’s base pricing for the entry-level version of each of its products is rising, too.

Take the new iPad Pro. This generation of Apple’s flagship tablet is faster, thinner, and has more screen space than ever. The most affordable model, the new 11-inch iPad Pro, starts at $799. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro comes in at $999. Not bad for tablets that Apple puts up against competitors’ full-fledged laptops. But if you take a look at the base pricing of the previous Continue reading "Apple is slowly squeezing even more out of customers"

Oh, baby! The new 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros are  really nice.

The last time I was this excited about an iPad was when Apple released the iPad Air 2. Each iteration since then, including the original iPad Pro, has been iterative. The iPad Pro's screen has grown over the years, but this is the first time the hardware (inside and outside) has changed so drastically, the tablet feels entirely new again.

This is the iPad's redefining moment, ushering in new a design and features that set it up for building upon for the next decade.

Since the iPad Pro launched in 2015, Apple has tried year after year to position it as "real" computer. With faster processors, better display technologies (like the 120Hz refresh rate ProMotion), and more powerful features introduced in iOS 11 like drag-and-drop and Continue reading "Finally, the iPad is exciting again"

Here’s what the new iPad Pro will look like, according to an iOS icon

Apple's been leaving all sorts of clues about what its new iPad Pro will look like, but it's left a pretty big one in iOS.

9to5Mac spotted an icon in iOS 12, which shows a representation of the tablet with no home button (and thus Face ID), no notch, rounded corners, and thick bezels — although this may differ from reality, as icons tend to be designed to be more readable.

It also appears that the sleep/wake button is staying up at the top, eschewing recent iPhone designs where that button has moved to the side.

More new Apple devices are coming.

As if this month wasn't already jam-packed with new product announcements from every tech company under the sun, Apple just sent out invitations for an event on Oct. 30 where it willl likely announce updated iPad Pros with Face ID support and possibly that rumored 13-inch MacBook we've heard so much about.

Oddly enough, the event will take place in New York City at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. (Apple's events, especially the ones that debut new hardware, are typically in California.)

Last refreshed in 2017, Apple's iPad Pros are due for an update. Reports suggest the new iPad will sport thinner bezels (mostly reduced top and bottom bezels), support Face ID in both portrait and landscape, and ditch the Lightning port for USB-C (yes, really). Read more...
