Apple has been busy in the tablet space this year between the new iPad Air and an overdue iPad mini update, but what about everybody else? You're getting your fix soon, apparently. MySmartPrice has discovered filings at the Eurasia Economic Commission for five unannounced iPads, two in one filing and three in another. The entries say precious little about the hardware itself, but these are definitely new models -- they'll all run iPadOS. As it stands, there are murmurs hinting at what you might expect.

Firefox finally takes fuller advantage of your iPad

Your choices for iPad-friendly web browsers just got ever-so-slightly larger. Mozilla has released an arguably overdue version of Firefox that aims to take better advantage of the iPad's extra screen real estate. It supports iOS' built-in split screen and support for keyboard shortcuts, as you might expect, but there are also interface tweaks specific to the tablet version. Firefox now shows all your tabs as easier-to-discern tiles, and private browsing is a single tap away on the main screen.

Apple iPad mini hands-on (2019): A love letter to old fans

I've always been fond of Apple's iPad mini; I bought the first one as a Mother's Day gift, and the iPad mini 4 was one of the first big reviews I ever wrote for Engadget. Unfortunately, Apple hasn't shown its smallest tablet nearly as much affection: As I write this, it's been more than three years since the company gave the mini a refresh. In that time, we've seen Apple launch and redesign a line of pro-grade tablets and build a stunningly competent entry-level model. Frankly, I had nearly given up on the mini entirely -- that is, until Apple announced a refreshed model earlier this week.

Apple iPad Air hands-on (2019): Just ‘Pro’ enough

It used to be that, if you wanted to buy the best possible iPad, you splurged on an iPad Air. It wasn't just sleek -- it was terribly powerful, too. (Well, for the time, anyway.) In 2015, though, the company launched the iPad Pro, and before long, the iPad Air line was discontinued and left to the annals of Apple history. Until now, that is.

Apple's online store went dark earlier this morning, and now it's clear why: The company decided to quietly roll out not one, but two new iPads ahead of its big event next week. The new, larger, 10.5-inch iPad Air will arrive with a 70 percent performance boost compared to its predecessor, thanks to the company's A12 Bionic chip with Apple's Neural Engine. That'll be useful alongside the now 20-percent larger display -- which is compatible with the first-gen Apple Pencil too.

Apple’s next low-cost iPads might skip Face ID

If the redesigned iPad Pro gave you hope that Apple would deliver a similar overhaul for lower-cost iPads, you might want to temper your expectations. Code sleuther Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered that the iOS 12.2 beta references four new iPad configurations that don't include Face ID, suggesting they'll stick to Touch ID and thus a more conventional design. This isn't shocking when Apple is likely sticking to a lower price point, but it does suggest that it could be a while before the company's depth-sensing camera tech is truly affordable.

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"
