We're still a little less than three weeks away from the commercial launch of the iPhone X, but the rumor mill is already stirring the pot when it comes to Apple's next product release. In this case, one famed Apple analyst claims to have the inside scoop on the next generation iPad Pro family.According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 10.5- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablets that will launch next year will feature the TrueDepth camera system that is one of the headlining features of the iPhone X. The TrueDepth camera system includes an infrared camera, flood illuminator and dot projector... Read more...
The $999 iPhone X isn't the only Apple product that gave consumer sticker shock when it was announced yesterday; the company also took the highly unusual step of actually raising the price on one of its popular product lines. In this case, the unlucky target was the iPad Pro, which is available in both 10.5- and 12.9-inch form-factors. Apple of course wasn't going to announced the bad news during its keynote, so it took a keen observer, MacRumors, to spot that 256GB and 512GB versions of the iPad Pro are now $50 more expensive. It doesn't matter if you choose the Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi+LTE models; the... Read more...
If you ask Apple about its recently refreshed 10.5-inch iPad Pro tablet, the Cupertino outfit will tell you that it is more powerful than most PC laptops, a bold claim to be sure. That is largely due to the custom A10X Fusion processor that is tucked inside. It is actually a pretty impressive piece of silicon, and one of a small number of chips being designed on a 10-nanometer manufacturing process. Andy Wei at TechInsights took a microscope to the A10X Fusion chip, which it reports is being produced by TSMC on a 10nm FinFET process. What is especially interesting about the design is that the die... Read more...
It has been an interesting thing to witness Microsoft's transformation over the past several years. Give Steve Ballmer credit—he knew that Microsoft needed fresh blood and so he handed the reins Satya Nadella. Microsoft has been a different company ever since, one that innovates in the hardware space. Even Apple is following Microsoft's lead, or at least that is what the Redmond outfit will tell you in regards to the iPad Pro.Ryan Gavin, general manager for Surface, said the iPad Pro is a "clear example" of Apple following in Microsoft's footsteps. That has not always been the case and these days,... Read more...
The industry's emphasis on increasingly thin and light devices has not come without a cost. The do-it-yourself (DIY) repair enthusiast has largely been shunned in recent years, especially by Apple, which both thrives in the mobile space and has never really cared about making its products easy to service at home. As such, it is not the least bit surprising that its new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is a bear to repair.Apple is far from alone in this regard, it just happens to leads the charge, and in particular with its iPhone and iPad products. In this case, the company's newest iPad Pro model sticks to... Read more...
Apple is still embracing the tablet form-factor, and that is readily apparent with the new all-new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which replaces the previous generation 9.7-inch model. The 10.5-inch iPad is largely able to keep the same dimensions and weight of its predecessor by shrinking the bezels to accommodate the larger display. The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro joins a refreshed 12.9-inch model, both of which include TrueTone displays that are 50 percent brighter. The displays also incorporate ProMotion technology, which is just a fancy way of saying that they have a refresh rate of 120Hz instead of 60Hz.... Read more...
Apple is widely expected to announce new iPads at a keynote event next month, where the main topic of discussion will be the arrival of two new iPad Pro models. Apple will reportedly reveal a second generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro which will launch alongside a new iPad Pro with a 10.5-inch display. Both new iPad Pros models are expected to incorporate an Apple A10X SoC, 12MP rear iSight cameras and True Tone display (which makes use of four-channel ambient light sensors). Apple will also reportedly release a new “budget” 9.7-inch iPad which will replace the iPad Air 2. This refreshed tablet will... Read more...
It may be hard to believe, but it has now been 7 years since then CEO Apple CEO Steve Jobs (RIP) unveiled the original iPad. At the time, Apple heralded the iPad as a reinvention of mobile computing; a device that could do most of what your desktop or notebook could do, but in a smaller, lighter form-factor. Initially available in only a 9.7-inch display size, sales of the iPad quickly took off, skyrocketing to become Apple’s No. 2 revenue generator right behind the iPhone. It wasn’t long before Apple began to expand its lineup, adding the smaller 7.9-inch iPad mini in 2012, the 12.9-inch iPad... Read more...
Apple has been relatively quiet on the iPad front since the 9.7-inch iPad Pro was launched this past spring, but the company’s suppliers are now starting to shed some light on what to expect for the next refresh. For starters, the new iPad is said to introduce yet another screen size (10.9 inches), which joins the 7.9-, 9.7-, and 12.9-inch displays on the current generation of iPads. However, the 10.9-inch display is said to be shoved into a device that has a footprint nearly identical to that of the current 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Apple allegedly has achieved this feat by minimizing the bezels around... Read more...
History (and Hollywood movies) taught us that you shouldn't pick on the school nerd, because it's the school nerd who goes on to become a raging success and gets the girl or guy. Apple missed that lesson. While Apple CEO Tim Cook was busy throwing shade at the convertible tablet category by comparing the concept to the futility of trying to merge a toaster with a refrigerator, Microsoft was busy designing the Surface Pro. Now it's Microsoft boss Satya Nadella who is getting the last laugh.Let's go back in time, shall we? If you set the DeLorean to early 2012, you can sit in and listen to Cook talk... Read more...
Politicians are not the only ones mudslinging this season. Huawei’s Matebook and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 have teamed up to continue to try and humiliate the iPad Pro and its various shortcomings. In Huawei’s latest commercial, the iPad Pro is being pushed out of the cool kid’s table. The advertisement battle all started when Apple released its initial iPad Pro commercial. The iPad Pro ad is titled “What’s a computer?” and starts with “Just when you think you know what a computer is, you see a keyboard that can just get out of the way...and a screen you can touch and even write on.” The commercial...

Apple iPhone 7 mania is already upon us. Apple’s next generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were announced on Wednesday, and preorders for the phones kicked off this morning. As we found out earlier this week, both models are powered by a brand new, quad-core Apple A10 Fusion processor. While we’ll likely find out more details on the processor when the first reviews land next week, we’re already beginning to get a little insight into the A10 variant powering the iPhone 7 Plus. According to Geekbench numbers, which showcase the iPhone 7 Plus running iOS 10.0.1 (Golden Master), the 5.5-inch smartphone... Read more...
The rivalry between Microsoft and Apple have just been reinvigorated thanks to a rather humorous commercial from the former that pokes fun at the iPad Pro. Apple introduced the iPad Pro late last year to court professional users who need to do more than just play games and watch Netflix with their tablets. The fruit company also launched a new “Smart Keyboard” alongside the iPad Pro, which is aimed at increasing productivity. Despite the change in [tablet] direction for Apple, sales haven’t exactly rebounded for Apple. And to add insult to injury, Microsoft is openly mocking the iPad Pro following... Read more...
Razer has gone and built itself a new mechanical key switch, but you won't find it implemented in any gaming keyboards for the PC, at least not right off the bat. Instead, Razer's new "Ultra-Low-Profile Mechancial Switch" will initially be outfitted into a keyboard case for Apple's iPad Pro tablet. Who would've guessed, right? "We’re commonly thought of as a company that makes phenomenal products for gamers, but to design the very best products, we’ve had to innovate from the ground up – even from each individual component such as mechanical switches," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO....
