Apple’s New Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Shakes Things Up

I have wanted Apple to go all out and give us their version of a standard laptop keyboard for the iPad Pro for a while now. Even if you like the Smart Keyboard and Smart Keyboard Folio, they aren’t what I’m talking about. Those were thin, light and mobile at the expense of all else. You know, things like backlit keys. Or a key mechanism. ANY key mechanism at all.

Apple Releases New iPad Pros for Preorder and Announces New Magic Keyboard

So Apple didn’t waste any time after accidentally leaking their new iPad Pro models a couple of days ago, releasing them this morning at Apple.com. As expected with all of the rumors and leaks, they have refreshed both the 11″ and 12.9″ models with new processors and cameras. Both models are available for preorder today, with the 11″ model starting at $799 and the 12.9″ version at $999.

Yesterday brought all the proof we need that new iPad Pros are coming very soon. First off, we got an old reliable indicator from across the world. The Eurasian Economic Commission, which has turned out to be a very reliable indicator of impending Apple releases, posted filings for new iPad Pros yesterday.

Apple Stores Close and Apple Cardholders Get Relief in the Wake of COVID-19

Apple isn’t always the first company to make a move that benefits its customers and employees over the stockholders. That is often the nature of large, publicly traded companies. However, that isn’t always the case that Apple puts profits over people. Whatever criticism they deservedly received for things like their early waffling when it came to the warranties on Butterfly Keyboards on MacBooks, or their initial handling of Battery-gate, there are still times when they get it right, right off the bat.

There have been a few instances of Apple doing this recently, such as sending care packages to some of their retail employees in China under quarantine and proactively moving WWDC completely online. They have piled up a little more good corporate karma since then with their recent moves regarding Apple Stores and the Apple Card.

Apple Makes the Right Move With WWDC

If you are an Apple fan or follower, then you doubtless have already heard that WWDC will be an online-only event this year. This certainly didn’t come as a shock, as most other tech conference scheduled before WWDC had already been cancelled or moved to streaming-only events. While Apple hasn’t given the dates, we do know that they will stream a Keynote and their typical developer sessions sometime in June.

Deals: Rigiet Smartphone Gimbal

While a simple smartphone mount with a grip does just fine for my simple needs, those who want to use the iPhone’s industry-leading video capabilities in a more serious way need more serious gear. That means investing in a gimbal that is capable of delivering smooth and balanced shots.

Apple Maps Still Has Miles to Go

My family and I are spending my kids’ Spring Break vacationing in the mountains of Western North Carolina. If you have ever visited the Blue Ridge Mountains, then you already know how beautiful this area is. If not and you enjoy getting out into nature, then I highly recommend a visit.

A couple of downsides of all this rugged and rustic beauty, however, are some very ragged roads and poor cell signal.

9to5Mac is Winning the Apple Rumor Cycle By a Mile

9to5Mac has been a trusted source for Apple news for a long time. However, I didn’t really consider them to be quite on the level with Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo when it came to new device and iOS rumors. Gui Rambo has made quite an impact over the last couple of years revealing lots of information hidden inside of Apple’s various OS betas, but those details don’t start coming until after WWDC, when those of us with Apple Dev Accounts get our hands on the goodies.

Apple is Working on New Features for their Wearable Devices

We already have reports that Apple is possible about to release a new set of noise cancelling over the ear headphones and is working on a “lite’ version of the AirPods Pro for release later in the year. However, that isn’t all Apple is working on to extend their extremely popular and fast-growing wearables lineup. They are also continuing to work on the Apple Watch and AirPods.
