Living with the New iPad Pros- Trying the Dark Side Again

Back in March of 2017, I vented about how much I disliked Apple’s various keyboards, especially the iPad Pro Smart Keyboard. To be honest, dislike didn’t really go far enough. I had very briefly tried the Smart Keyboard before that and then tried it against thinking that I might have a different opinion the second time around. Going back and being disappointed again frankly just pissed me off and I went from dislike to hatred and disgust. Yeah, I know. It’s just a keyboard….that still cost $139 on Open Box sale.

Where Are All the New iPad Pro Cases?

One advantage that you have owning Apple products is access to a robust and thriving ecosystem of accessories. This is especially true for mobile devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. As soon as a new device releases, everyone from the major brands, to boutique and custom makers, to no-name sellers on Amazon and eBay are either announcing new cases or already have them available.

Living with the New iPad Pros- First Impressions

For whatever reason I can’t catch a break when it comes to my job and Apple events and device releases lining up. I got both the 12.9″ and 11″ iPad Pros and the new Apple Pencil yesterday, but all I had time to do was record an unboxing video. I set both devices up, restored them from backups and tested them for just a few minutes, but unfortunately, that’s all I had time for. I ended up working until the wee hours, so I didn’t have a chance to share any first impressions of Apple’s latest and greatest

The iPad Pro Doesn’t Have to Be a Laptop Replacement

I have been reading a few of the pre-release iPad Pro reviews, and I can’t help but pick up on the recurring theme. That theme is…but. The constant refrain is the iPad Pro is great BUT it isn’t a laptop replacement.

Apple iPad Event Quick Take- Now They’re Just Showing Off

Apple’s Mac and iPad Event in Brooklyn just ended, so now it’s time to unpack a little of what we got to see. There are plenty of places you can turn to for specs, speeds, and feeds, so I’m not going to bother getting into any of that. There are just my initial impressions of what was announced.

Will iPad Preorders Go Live After the Event Today?

Last Summer at Apple’s annual WWDC Keynote, the company threw us a curveball. An announcement of updated iPad Pros, including a new 10.5″ model, was expected leading up to the event. However, preorders for the new iPads starting immediately after the event was definitely not. I know this took me by surprise.

Details of Apple’s New Pencil Leak Ahead of Tomorrow’s Event

I’ve got to hand it to Ben Geskin. The man waited until the last minute to play his card and ruin a big reveal. Apple had a solid surprise still left in the bag until today and company execs may have thought they were home free…until they weren’t. The Apple Pencil 2 has been rumored off and on, but no real details have come out up until Mr Geskin’s big scoop. Now it looks like we know everything.

Will the New iPad Pro Have Mouse Support?

This question is based more on conjecture about how the coming iPad Pro may work than any hard evidence or major confirmed rumors. Despite that, I think a discussion of mouse support on the iPad Pro is a good thought exercise about how we want to use the device, and where we want Apple to take the platform in the future.

Apple’s iPad Event is Finally Revealed!

Apple finally sent out the invites today, and Tuesday, October 30 is the day. The event is being held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn New York. While this announcement has been the worst kept secret in tech since the iPhone event wrapped with no iPad news, the date is probably the least interesting part of this announcement and invite. Here are a few things that stand out to me:

Lots of New Leaks of the Coming iPad Pros

Several new leaked images of the coming iPad Pros have showed up over the past 24 hours courtesy of Slashleaks and mysmartprice. Not only do they look really good, but they also look dead-on similar to each other and to other recent leaks. The closer we get to an announcement, the more credible these leaks become, so I have very high confidence that these images are the real deal.

How Will USB-C Work on the iPad Pro?

After another round of leaks and software data mining, it looks like the iPad Pro’s rumored switch from a Lightning Port to USB-C is all but confirmed. This shift is a big deal, as it moves the iPad Pro lineup more in line with Apple’s notebook computers than its smartphones. When you consider that the lower-cost iPad still has Lightning, this becomes an even more notable distinction between devices.
