FINALLY!! There is actually some iPad news worth posting about. After only getting one new iPad in the early Spring after rumors of as many as five new devices in the pipeline, it looks like the release of at least one new iPad Pro is imminent. The new iPad Pro 10.5″ model, which was rumored to have gone into production a few weeks ago, now seems to be slated for announcement in three weeks at WWDC.
We are quickly approaching Summer, which is a time when many of us are on the go more than ever. If you are anything like me, when you are doing all of this running around, there are multiple devices on the go along with you. I have a family of five, so there are always several phones, tablets, and/or portable gaming devices with us wherever we are headed.

It’s always good to have a backup battery around for such occasions.
After the introduction of true iPad multi-tasking in iOS 9, one of the biggest missing features was the ability to use this split view in Safari. Other browsers and apps rushed in to fill the void, but they often had their limitations. Thankfully, Apple remedied this omission in iOS 10, adding native split-view capability to Safari.

Let’s take a look at all of the ways you can trigger and use Safari Split-View. Continue reading
If there is one thing the world isn’t short of, it is iPhone cases. They come in all shapes, sizes, types, and materials, from manufacturers across the world. As anyone who has dropped their iPhone and busted the screen (which is most of us) can tell you, it is a hard world out there with a naked or barely-covered device. As such, those cases with heavy duty drop protection have always been a popular choice for many. Unfortunately, the cases that provide the highest degree of protection tend to add a lot of bulk and completely obscure the look of the iPhone. While there is certainly a place for these cases and there are many lines of work and types of play where they are absolutely necessary, they tend to viewed as the only options to protect an iPhone from drops.

If you are an Apple Watch user, then you know that a charging stand makes life with the magnetic “puck-style” charger much easier to deal with. The problem is finding a dock that either offers additional functionality, and/or is available at a great price.
The Rundown is our recurring Facebook Live video segment that covers the site’s posts from the previous week, some Apple News, and some things that are coming soon on the site.
In honor of the thieves who almost got away over 100 smartphones at Coachella a couple of weeks ago, this week’s tip is how to set up and use Find My iPhone. Those thieves were thwarted when a few of the victims used computers and other iOS devices to check Find My iPhone, and discover a man with their devices in his backpack before he could get away. For such a simple and easy to use system, it is a powerful tool that can aid you in finding lost devices, or bringing stolen ones home.

If you are either close to my age, a classic gaming fan, or both, then you likely recognize the controller pictured above. The SFC30 from 8Bitdo Tech is precisely styled after the controller from the Super Famicom, the Japanese version of the popular Super Nintendo classic 16 bit game console. This controller was a BIG leap forward over the original Ninetendo NES controller, with more buttons and far better ergonomics.
