September 12th is the data that Apple has penciled in to launch new iPhones and new tablets (and perhaps some additional hardware products). We have seen leaks that claim to give a glimpse at what the new iPhone XS will look like along with the coming Apple Watch refresh. The new iPhones are expected to have refreshed internals and new colors offered. We haven't heard much about what Apple has in store for its new iPad Pro tablets, other than a leaked icon from iOS 12 that showed a tablet with much thinner bezels. Now OnLeaks and MySmartPrice have teamed up to offer new renders based on leaked information. The source information used for these renders is from OnLeaks and shows a tablet that very...

We're getting our first look at Apple's next-generation iPad Pro, and surprisingly, it's not coming from a supply chain leak. Instead, it's Apple that has leaked the details courtesy of the newly-released iOS 12 Beta 5. As was the case last year when a glyph of the iPhone X confirmed the shape of the device before its official reveal, this new iPad glyph tells us a whole lot with just a few pixels. For starters, the bezels around the display are a lot smaller; especially along the top and bottom of the device. This has allowed Apple to expand the size of the display while apparently keeping similar exterior dimensions. It also looks as though Apple has been able to squeeze in an... Read more...
Apple is set to unveil its next generation iPad Pro models this fall, and we've got a fresh round of rumors with regards to what to expect. As before, there will be two sizes: the smaller 10.5-inch model, which will be joined by the 12.9-inch model. The smaller of the two will be roughly 6 mm thick, while the larger one is slightly thinker at 6.4 mm.  This will be complete redesign of the iPad Pro family, and Apple is said to have trimmed the bezels all around. Apple has reportedly killed off the home button, just as it did when the iPhone X was introduced in the fall of 2017. In its place will be Face ID, which was also first seen on the iPhone X. Although the iPad can traditionally be... Read more...
Adobe is looking to further entrench itself into the mobile market with a full-fledged version of Photoshop for the iPad. The company already offers a number of Photoshop companion apps for the iOS platform including Photoshop Express and Photoshop Mix, but this will be Adobe’s first attempt to bring a near-desktop-class photo editing package to the iPad. The news of the company’s intention to give iPad users a more complete version of Photoshop comes courtesy of Scott Belsky, Adobe Chief Product Officer for Creative Cloud. He says that Adobe is working on a cross-platform version of Photoshop that will offer users the ability to start a project on the desktop and complete it unhindered... Read more...
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 to enable the Face ID facial recognition system. This allows you to unlock your iPhone X just by looking... 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 $50 price hike is now in effect across all color variations. The only members of the iPad Pro family... 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 size is considerably smaller than the previous generation A9X SoC—it measures just 96.4mm2, down... 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, Gavin says that even though Microsoft pays attention to the competition, the company does not really... 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 a familiar script of using "strong adhesive" to hold the chassis shut. On the plus side, the thinner... 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. The faster refresh rate also means that “inking” with the Apple Pencil is even faster and smoother... 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 use an A9X SoC. It remains to be seen if this lineup revamp will help revive the iPad segment, which... 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 Pro in late 2015, and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro in early 2016. However, over the years, it appears that... 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 the display. Smaller bezels mean that Apple’s palm rejection technology will be working overtime... 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 about the state of Apple during the company's first-quarter earnings call. Windows 8 had not yet... 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 ends with the statement, “Imagine what your computer to do, if it was an iPad Pro.” The implication...

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 has 3GB of RAM onboard (the iPhone 7 still reportedly contains 2GB RAM). Compared to the previous... 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 the release of this Apple commercial: Microsoft couldn’t resist poking holes in Apple’s argument... 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. "We’re excited about the potential of our Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch and look forward to... Read more...
Apple says only a  "small number" of 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners were affected by a bug in iOS 9.3.2 that caused some tablets to freeze and cease booting. Though Apple seems to be downplaying how many iPads are now out of commission because of the update, the Cupertino outfit is investigating the situation and working on a remedy."We're working on a fix for an issue impacting a small number of iPad units that are receiving an error when trying to update the software," an Apple spokesperson told iMore. "We'll issue and update as quickly as possible."In the meantime, those affected by the buggy update are unable to use their iPad Pro tablets. Instead of booting into iOS like they're supposed...

You can't get much work done on a bricked tablet built for professionals. Unfortunately that's the situation playing out for some 9.7-inch iPad Pro owners who installed Apple's over-the-air (OTA) iOS 9.3.2 update. Many of those affected by the issue report seeing an "Error 56" message imploring them to plug their iPad Pro into iTunes, which doesn't solve the problem, and nor does rebooting. Apple's incremental update to iOS went out on Monday and was supposed to squash a handful of bugs, not introduce a show stopping one. Sometimes these things happen, but it looks particularly bad for Apple, which has been pitching its iPad Pro as an "uncompromising vision of personal computing for the modern... Read more...
Apple's been on a mission to shrink its mobile products for consumers who prefer smaller size gadgets, hence the recent releases of the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The folks at iFixIt already took the liberty of gutting the former, and now it's the latter that's fallen on the teardown site's operating table. Folks, don't try this at home.No, seriously don't try tearing into a 9.7-inch iPad Pro, there's a good chance something will go wrong. In stark contrast to the iPhone SE, which surprisingly turned out to be somewhat easy to open up and repair (for an Apple product), the newest iPad Pro makes it clear that you're not supposed to be disassembling this thing.As Apple often likes to do,...

One of the biggest signings in Major League Baseball this year isn't a pitcher with a wicked fast ball or a slugger who specializes in smashing the ball over the fence, but Apple and it's 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablet. Taking a page from Microsoft with its NFL deal, Apple inked a multi-year agreement to supply every MLB team with iPad Pro tablets to help coaches and statisticians evaluate performance data in real-time. Number crunching is a big deal in sports these days. As portrayed in the 2003 book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game and subsequent 2011 biographical sports drama Moneyball, former baseball player and current front office executive Billy Beane helped popularize the practice...
