According to Mark Gurman, I Guessed Right About the iPad Pro Release

iPad Pro

I wrote about some of the rumors that Apple’s coming iPad and MacBook Pros could be delayed and/or severely constrained a couple of days ago. Based on what little we knew at the time, I guessed that Apple would still release their new iPad Pros soon, even if the models have to be staggered and are only available in limited quantities.

Today we got some trustworthy reporting that’s making me feel pretty good about that educated guess.

Will the 2021 iPad Pro Fall Victim to the Global Chip Shortage?

iPad Pro

So far, Apple has weathered the global chip shortage better than just about any other major electronics manufacturer. They have continued to ship Macs, iPads and iPhones on time and keep them in stock, or at least more so than their biggest competitors.

This is likely due to the company’s size and incredible buying power. For over a decade, Apple has committed a large amount of money and resources to make sure they are the top priority for their suppliers. That has served them well with supplies now in a bind.

Review: Twelve South HoverBar Duo

HoverBar Duo

While iPad stands often feel like a dime-a-dozen commodity accessory after a decade of Apple tablets, we seem to be in the midst of a sudden renaissance for this product category. You have Kensington’s new StudioDock, which is impressive in both its size and feature set and comes with a price tag to match. Then there’s the Satechi Aluminum Desktop Stand that I wrote about Sunday and back in January. Now we come to a third high quality stand released this year that brings both great construction and a high level of versatility. This stand is the HoverBar Duo from Twelve South.

Would You Buy This Apple Device? HomePod Soundbar Edition

HomePod Soundbar

Every so often I start asking myself if others would be interested in a potential Apple device that’s been rumored or talked about. In the past, I’ve asked this question about an iPadOS device with a MacBook form factor, as well as an iPad with an OLED keyboard with Apple’s Taptic Engine haptic feedback. With the demise of Apple’s original HomePod and some rumors of what they might do with this category in the future, I am wondering if other Apple fans would out their money down for a HomePod soundbar.

Podswap Delivers a Convenient Solution to Battle e-Waste One Set of AirPods at a Time

Podswap

It’s hard to beat the convenience of a good pair of wireless earbuds. Apple’s AirPods have been leaders in this category since they were released and really launched the product category into the mainstream. They succeeded by streamlining the process of connecting a pair of buds and then making it incredibly easy to swap them between devices. All of the above can be a pain using traditional Bluetooth connections, but Apple did a masterful job of removing all of that friction and frustration.
