After launching bigger size iPhone models in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, we expected Apple to follow suit by announcing a larger version of its iPad Air, and to do it perhaps this month during a scheduled press event (October 16). We were wrong. While rumors of a 12.9-inch iPad Air still appear to be true, it doesn't look like the giant slate will see the light of day until next year. According to The Wall Street Journal and the "people familiar with the matter" that it spoke with, Apple's suppliers are too busy trying to produce enough iPhones to meet demand to concentrate on a new form factor...

Give a kid a pack of Oreo cookies and he'll feast for a few minutes. But offer the same kid an iPad for his stash of sweets and he'll gladly make that trade, spending the next several hours staring and tapping at a brightly lit LCD screen. We know this because the iPad is now the No. 1 brand among children ages 6-12, according to findings from the 2014 Young Love study, the nation's largest survey of brands among youth and families. The annual study ranks more than 250 brands each year and includes heavy-hitting names like McDonald's, Toys"R"Us, Nickelodeon, Disney, Super Mario, Cartoon Network,... Read more...
Now that Apple's gone and released its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets to the public, what's next? It takes some bouncing around the web to gather up all the rumors and leaked information, but it appears that Apple will launch at least a new iPad model during a planned (but as-yet unannounced) press event next month. Word around the web is that Apple is planning the event for October 16, 2014, at the Cupertino company's Town Hall Auditorium, which is on its corporate campus. It's said to be a bit more laid back and casual than the iPhone 6 launch event was. New iPad models are expected to take... Read more...
Say it with us now, "Gold is best!" That's the line made hilariously famous by a TeamCoco (Conan O'Brien) skit mocking the gold iPhone, but in all seriousness, the gold color option has turned into, well, a golden egg for Apple. It's apparently so popular that Apple will reportedly offer a gold color option for its next generation of 9.7-inch iPad models. It's expected that Apple will announce the new iPad models this month, and according to Bloomberg, gold will be a color choice for the rear part of the chassis. This will be in addition to the same silver and gray options available on the current... Read more...
There have been lots of iPhone 6 rumors, which Apple is expected to announce during a press event next month, but not much speculation about the next iPad. Until now, that is. Word from people who supposedly have knowledge on the matter say that Apple's suppliers are preparing to build the biggest size iPad ever. Beginning in the first quarter of next year, Bloomberg's sources say Apple's suppliers will start producing a version of the iPad with a 12.9-inch display. That's several inches larger than the 9.7-inch iPad, and almost twice as big as the iPad mini, which has a screen that measures 7.9... Read more...
Retailers have been discounting iPhone 5 smartphones heavily ahead of the anticipated launch of Apple’s next generation of iPhones in early September. Now, AT&T is running a promotion that knocks $200 off the price of an iPad or iPad mini when you buy an iPhone 5c or 5s on an AT&T Next plan. This is not an online promotion, so you’ll need to visit an AT&T brick-and-mortar to take advantage of it. The deal applies to iPads and iPad minis, but not the iPad minis that have retina displays. You’ll need to buy the iPad with a two-year AT&T wireless agreement (in addition... Read more...
Apple has a press event scheduled for next month in which it's believed the Cupertino outfit will unveil the iPhone 6, along with perhaps a wrist wearable device, though the latter is more likely to see an unveiling in October. Also on tap from Apple is a new full-size iPad with a 9.7-inch display -- word on the web is that mass production of the next iPad is already taking place. Citing a pair of sources who asked not to be identified, Bloomberg reports that a new version of the 7.9-inch iPad mini is entering production and is likely to see the light of day in retail before the end of the year....

China seems to be on a mission to isolate itself from the world, at least in terms of technology. After banning Windows 8 on government PCs and raiding several of Microsoft's offices in China as part of an anti-trust investigation, Chinese officials have now prohibited to purchase of several Apple products for government use. Reportedly, the list of banned Apple products include the iPad, iPad Mini, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and half a dozen other items, all of which were left off of a final government procurement list distributed in July. Interestingly, they appeared on the same list in draft... Read more...
Uh oh, BlackBerry -- with some help from IBM, it looks like Apple is making a play for the enterprise market with its mobile devices. Starting this fall, IBM is planning to partner exclusively with Apple to sell iPhone and iPad devices pre-loaded with native applications developed from the ground up specifically for enterprise customers. The initiative is called IBM MobileFirst for iOS. It combines IBM's big data and analytic capabilities with Apple's consumer experience, along with its hardware and software integration and developer platform. The two envision creating apps that will transform... Read more...
You’re not the only one who’s a little concerned about the hypnotic effect of screen time on your kids. A pair of former Googlers, Pramod Sharma and Jérôme Scholler, felt the same way, and so they developed a gaming platform called Osmo that connects the physical and digital worlds. The idea is that not only are kids engaged with that beloved screen, they’re engaged in physical activity as well, and the two merge to make the experience even better. The Osmo device is a small, red, plastic device that snaps over your iPad’s camera that uses artificial intelligence... Read more...
Do you consider yourself a storyteller blessed with the gift of gab? If so -- or if you simply have a sexy voice you want to show off -- you might be interested in Adobe Voice, a new animated video app for iPad users. Adobe's new app pits you as the engaging storyteller/narrator and allows you to create and share video stories without any filming or editing. The app is fleshed out with over 25,000 professionally designed icons, which you can supplement with millions of images available on the web or your own photo collection. Adobe's vision is to breathe new life into static presentation formats... Read more...
Office for iPad is finally here, and for once, the term “finally” is truly justified. For nearly as long as the iPad has been available, general consumers and enterprise users alike have been clamoring for Microsoft’s suite of document editing tools. In fact, the dearth of Office on iPad enabled an entire ecosystem to grow, with the likes of Quickoffice and DocsToGo stepping in to fill the void. Eventually, Apple’s own iWork suite was unleashed on iOS for free, which also helped bridge the gap. But even still, there has been a void: you can imitate Office and get by, but... Read more...

Rivals Microsoft and Apple both stand to benefit from the former making available its Office productivity suite on the latter's iPad devices, and having now done that, the reception by users has been encouraging. Barely more than a week after launching its suite of apps on iPad, Microsoft took to Twitter to announce 12 million combined downloads of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, each of which are available individually for free. This launch was a long time coming. It had been rumored for the past couple of years, but rivalries being what they are, Microsoft avoided iOS longer than it should... Read more...
