Apple Just Announced a New iPad Air and iPad Mini

It's been a while since we heard from both the iPad Air and the iPad Mini, mainly because people seemed to have gravitated away from small light tablets - instead going for larger more powerful devices that could do more complex things. The last Mini (number 4) was released back in September 2015, and the Air 2 was discontinued back in 2017. But Apple has decided there's still a place for them both, announcing a new 7.9-inch iPad Mini and a 10.5-inch iPad Air, complete with Apple Pencil support. Read More >>

Apple Prime Would Be a Gigantic Hit, Huh?

It’s imminent. Multiple outlets now report that Apple will announce new video streaming and news subscription services at a celebrity-studded event in Cupertino, California on 25 March.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman corroborated that report and added that Apple’s long-rumoured streaming video service would also be announced—and with the participation of several Hollywood A-listers to boot. So it sounds like no small affair. Read More >>

A New iPad Mini Might Ride Again in Early 2019

The current iPad Mini 4 was originally introduced in 2015, and after almost three full years without a meaningful update, earlier this year I wrote that it might be time to give up hope about ever getting a new one. But if the latest reports are true, Apple’s smallest iPad might still have a shot at a comeback. Read More >>

Apple Admits the New iPad Could Be Prone to Bending

Remember when Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything got everyone worked up into a tizzy after he bent an iPad Pro in half with his bare hands and mused whether Apple’s new tablet might be a little weak? Well, it seems he may have been onto something. Read More >>

The New iPad Pro Is the Last Great Tablet

The standalone tablet is all but dead. It’s been supplanted by 2-in-1s like the Surface Pro, which promises the excellent content consumption powers of a tablet, crossed with the actual productivity of a real laptop. Still, Apple has defiantly continued to make a tablet – both the budget iPad that was refreshed in March, and the more productivity-friendly iPad Pro that was just released. The budget iPad is nice, but thanks to a few tricks, like Apple Pencil support, USB-C, and a great-looking display that can chew through any content thrown at it, the iPad Pro is better. This is the last great tablet. Read More >>

The iPad Pro Is Finally Making a Case for Itself

The iPad looks like it’s finally poised to stop being a movie watching machine and actually fulfil the promise Apple has repeatedly proselytised: that the iPad is a productivity machine. A new processor, better application support, and a few tweaks to the design have further brought the iPad Pro into a space where it could—conceivably be a competitor to actual 2-in-1s like the Surface Pro or even the Pixel Slate.

The Logitech Crayon Is a Great iPad Stylus for Kids. Artists? Not So Much

There was a small splash of enthusiasm when Logitech recently announced that the £65 Crayon, a more affordable “digital pencil” originally only for education customers, would be available to all iPad users. Calling it a “pencil” is problematic, though. It can’t do all the same things as a £90 Apple Pencil. And depending on what you want to do with an iPad, that difference can feel like a big deal.
