Apple has had a rough couple of months following the release of it's 2018 iPad Pro after it was discovered that the device bends easily under minimal pressure. Apple attempted to explain away any appearances of bending with the iPad Pro by claiming that it's normal for the iPad Pro to be bent from the factory. Apple's Vice President of Hardware Engineering, Dan Riccio, also attempted to sweep the problem under the proverbial rug by claiming that the iPad Pro meets or exceeds all of the company's high quality standards. These efforts by Apple have done little to quell the discontent of the company's... Read more...
When the 2018 family of iPad Pros were released in October, Apple championed their all-new design which was thinner and lighter than previous generations. The company also touted new features like USB-C connectivity, blazing fast A12X processors and the first implementation of Face ID on an iPad. However, it’s the thinness of the device that brought some unwanted attention to the iPad Pro soon after release. JerryRigEverything made a big splash last month with a YouTube video that showed the iPad Pro bending with what appeared to be a minimal amount of force. Since that... Read more...
Back in November, we talked a bit about a video test that showed just how easily the 2018 iPad Pro could bend, rendering your fancy tablet useless junk. Reports have been surfacing online that the 2018 iPad Pro is coming out of the box with a slight bend in the frame for some users. Apple has now stepped up and acknowledged that some of the expensive tablets (stating at $799) are bent out of the box, but says that bend is a normal part of the manufacturing process. (Image Source: Mac Rumors) The Verge writes, "According to the company, this is a side effect of the device’s manufacturing process... Read more...
If you weren't able to partake in any Black Friday shopping this year and thought you might have missed the best deals on iPads, you have another chance to score some savings. B&H Photo has a smoking deal going right now on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro from mid-2017. That means this isn't the brand new iPad Pro with the crazy thin bezels that Apple announced in October, but it might be more than enough for most folks out there. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro with 256GB of storage, Wi-Fi, and 4G LTE integrated in gold, silver or space gray is available with a $330 discount. That makes the tablet $749 rather... Read more...
Apple gadget fans will be cringing at JerryRigEverything's latest video, where he takes a brand new 11" iPad Pro out of the box and proceed to destroy it. The video also shows the destruction of an Apple Pencil. The bending test video starts with the Apple Pencil that breaks with a surprising amount of ease; only slightly more than the force it takes to break a normal wooden pencil was needed to break the Apple Pencil. Beware placing an Apple Pencil in your pocket as it might not survive but that was just the beginning of the mayhem. To make matters worse, the battery inside the Apple Pencil... Read more...
Apple recently refreshed its iPad Pro line with faster hardware and new features, and while many things are different, one thing remains the same—they are difficult to crack open and repair, should the need arise. That's par for course these days and not endemic to Apple, of course. The latest generation iPad Pro is just another example of how DIY repairs are not really feasible for the average consumer, as indicated by a teardown of the tablet. As they often do, the folks at iFixit got their hands on the new gadget and promptly stripped it naked, taking apart the tablet until the premium... Read more...
You do not need to wait until Black Friday to snag a sweet tech deal. A number of devices are on sale during the Sam’s Club Super November Event.

This is a particularly good deal because just the television... Read more...
One of the big upgrades to the newest iPad Pro is the custom A12X Bionic chip inside, complete with a neural engine. This burly processor is at the heart of Apple's claim that the iPad Pro is "more powerful than most computers." But is it really? We'll say this—it's fast, based on a leaked benchmark run of the A12X Bionic at Geekbench. It needs to be fast in order for Apple to justify its marketing strategy for the iPad Pro. It's still a tablet, but from Apple's vantage point, it can keep up with (and surpass) a traditional PC, while offering the type of portability that's inherent in a tablet... Read more...
Apple today pulled wraps off its all-new iPad Pro, which is the biggest design change to the professionally-oriented tablet since it first debuted in 2015. The bezels around the display have shrunken, and as you can clearly see, the venerable Home button has been jettisoned. Apple first completely removed the Home button on the iPhone X and continued the tradition with the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Now that the iPad Pro no longer has a button on its front face, it too has adopted Face ID for authentication (like its iPhone siblings).  However, whereas the iPhone family can... Read more...

What is Apple brewing up? The company recently sent out invitations to members of the media for their October 30th event in Brooklyn, New York.

The October 30th event will likely feature other Apple products besides iPhones and Apple Watches, which were unveiled last month. There have already been a number of leaks for a new iPad Pro, and it is expected to resemble the iPhone X thanks to the removal of the home button, thinner bezels, and a TrueDepth camera system that will incorporate...

There were a lot of Apple fans out there who were a bit disappointed when the iPhone event came and went with no detail on the rumored new iPad Pro tablets. Rumors continue to suggest that Apple will hold an event this month where the new iPad Pro will get official. All we have to go on right now are tidbits gleaned from icons and rumor about the new tablets. Apple is expected to go with very slim bezels on the device with no notch; this style was tipped in an icon that was uncovered in iOS 12. A new leak has revealed some details about the 2018 iPad Pro that allegedly come from people familiar... Read more...
Apple has begun pushing out its iOS 12.1 update in beta form, and in doing so the Cupertino company may have revealed some new details about upcoming features and products that have not yet been announced.

One of the things that annoys lots of people about Apple and its products is the company's reliance on proprietary charging tech. While many tablets and smartphones use a standard USB port for charging, Apple relies on the proprietary Lightning port. Noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stepped up on the eve of Apple's event with some last-minute predictions. One of his predictions is that Apple will be ditching the Lighting connector on the 2018 iPad Pro and moving to the more common USB-C interface. Kuo isn't clear if that USB-C port will be usable for anything other than charging the iPad... Read more...
