Apple made some really big announcements about the future of all its products during its annual Worldwide developer Conference on Monday — WWDC, for short — but one of the biggest has to be the fact that iPads now have their own operating system, iPadOS. Instead of using iOS, the same software used on the iPhone, the…

Apple iPad Air review (2019): Just right

For the last few years, Apple's iPad lineup has had a large and obvious hole in it. At one end, there's the $329 iPad, an affordable way to do basic computing and run the many excellent apps out there. It cuts some corners with a years-old design, older processors and a less-advanced screen, but for most people it's good enough. At the other end, there's the iPad Pro, which Apple has made increasingly more powerful in the three years since it first arrived. At this point, it's a bleeding-edge device with a big, beautiful screen, Apple's best design and a crazy-fast processor. It's also quite a bit more expensive, with a starting price of $799.

The gap between those two devices is so pronounced that Apple is filling it with a new tablet, the $499 iPad Air. Though calling it "new" might be a stretch. The iPad Air Continue reading "Apple iPad Air review (2019): Just right"

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.

The iPad Air seems boring, but I want one anyway

When Apple released the impressive and wildly expensive iPad Pro last fall, I started thinking that the company could use an iPad XR. I imagined a tablet that takes the high tech found in the new iPad Pro but cuts some corners to make it more approachable to the masses. The new iPad Air isn't that. Instead it's like the 10.5-inch iPad Pro from 2017, except with a price cut and a few spec bumps. That's not very exciting. What's more, the iPad Air doesn't have the flashy bezel-less display, Face ID sensor and support for the new Apple Pencil, like the existing iPad Pro does.

But compared with the basic $329 iPad, the new iPad Air has worthwhile improvements: a bigger, better screen, a much newer processor, more storage and support for Apple's Smart Keyboard accessory. It's a logical step up from the base iPad, and Continue reading "The iPad Air seems boring, but I want one anyway"

Save on MacBooks, iPads, Acer laptops, Chromebooks, and more this weekend

The year may be winding down, but the deals certainly aren't — all the sales on laptops and tablets this weekend prove it.

New Year's means heading back to work and school, so there are plenty of affordable laptops that are perfect for either. If you need something basic, the Acer Chromebook 14 is $263 and is great for most classrooms. There's also this 17.3-inch laptop by HP for $490 if work requires a little more than a Chromebook can offer.

But some of the best savings this weekend belong to the high-performance laptops. Anyone looking for a new MacBook Pro can get the Apple MacBook Pro MLH42LL/A for $2099, $700 down from the original $2799 price. But if you or the one you're shopping for is into gaming, the Acer Predator Triton 700 is $1999 and packs all the power of a desktop into a surprisingly thin laptop.

Apple, hear me out: iPad XR


This post is by Engadget RSS Feed from Engadget RSS Feed

Every iPad Pro released thus far has been met with a similar reaction from the press. There's an acknowledgement that the device is technologically impressive and predictably the "best" tablet from the company we've seen thus far -- but that's always followed by questions about who it's for, and whether it can replace a "real" computer.

Well, Apple is trying to quell those questions once and for all this year. The combination of an impressive external redesign and new internals that sound ludicrously powerful should make the new iPad Pro lineup more capable than ever before. Unfortunately, though, Apple continues to raise the iPad Pro's price, putting it out of reach for almost anyone who isn't using the tablet day in and day out to get serious work done. Yes, the iPad Pro has always been expensive, but with a minimum entry price of $800, these new iPads aren't just Continue reading "Apple, hear me out: iPad XR"
