I am a Christian husband and father of 3 living in the Southeastern US. I have worked as a programmer and project manager in the Commercial and Industrial Automation industry for over 19 years, so I am hands on with technology almost every day. However, my passion in technology is for mobile devices, specifically Apple's iOS and iPadOS hardware and software. My favorite is still the iPad.

Don’t Get Too Excited That Apple is Testing Out Folding Screens From Samsung

Earlier this week, reports started circulating that Apple is testing out folding screen samples from Samsung for potential use in future products. This is certainly notable, since Apple already sources most of it’s OLED screens from them and because Samsung is putting so much R&D emphasis on folding screen tech. However, while some may see this as a sign that a folding iPhone is inevitable and coming soon, I just see it as business as usual at Apple.

iPad Air Leaked Manual

Could the iPad Air 4 Become Apple’s Most Popular Tablet?

iPad Air Leaked Manual

When the iPad Air 3 was released last year, I promptly picked one up, kicked the tires for a few days and reviewed it. While it wasn’t for me, I did like it enough that I recommended it to my father, who has enjoyed it since I handed it over.

I came away pretty impressed after my time with the Air 3 and thought that the new model was a good ideal on Apple’s part. There was far too wide of a gulf between the base model 6th Gen iPad, the smaller iPad Mini, and the iPad Pro before the release of the Air. The new model gave buyers a solid, full-size mid-tier option to think about with enough features and improvements to stand out.

All Hail Mark Gurman: Apple Event For Watch and iPads Scheduled for September 15th

Apple Event on September 15, 2020

Yesterday, I said that there would be a showdown between several Apple leakers and analysts. Sources would be weighed and found to be legit, or possibly just found out. Well, hopefully no one loses their job over who they told what and when, but after this morning’s tempest in a teapot full of Apple fans, we have a clear winner by a landslide- Mark Gurman of Bloomberg.

Apple Watch Series 5

After a Year With a Stainless Steel Apple Watch, I’m Sold

Apple Watch Series 5

I’ve had every Apple Watch that’s been released except for the Series 2, and in each case, I’ve bought the aluminum model. They were less expensive, looked attractive enough and never broke down on me. However, I decided to change things up a bit last fall when the Series 5 was released. I went with the Stainless Steel model to see if the differences justified the extra cost. Continue reading

New Patent Filings Show Apple Going All-Out With Their Coming AirPods Studio Headphones

AirPods Studio Patent

It seems that Apple has been hard at working at making a better set of high-end over the ear headphones. I figured we would just get a souped-up pair of Beat Studio cans with the latest Apple H1 chip, but it looks like Apple is aiming a lot higher with the AirPods Studios that should be released soon. A series patents that were filed back in May but were published today, reveal some of what they have been up to on the design side.
