The New iPad Air Concept Making the Rounds Certainly Grabs the Eye

So I don’t usually pay attention to concept renderings and videos. They often don’t have enough basis in reality to interest me and often end up being just wishful thinking. Maybe I’m cynical, but they often seem like a waste of time. However, the new iPad Air rendering I got a look at over the weekend felt different and got my attention because of it.

Rumor Has It New iPads Are Still Coming in 2020

IPad Rumors 2020

Even though it looks like the enhanced iPad Pro with a Mini-LED screen has been bumped to next year due to the impact of COVID-19, we have fresh rumors of another new Apple tablet coming in 2021. There have already been rumblings about a new iPad Air coming in late Summer or Fall, but according to Ming-Chi Quo, we should also expect a new iPad in the second half of this year. Well, maybe.

The 2020 iPad Air Rumors Are All Over the Place, But Still Look Good

ipad air

When I saw rumors of an iPad Air with Mini-LED after we got the news that the iPad Pro with the same screen tech had slid into 2021, I was very skeptical. It made absolutely no sense to me that Apple would release a new technology like this on what is ultimately a mid-tier device. However, it looks like they were just behind the curve, as the China Times reported yesterday that Mini-LED has been scratched from the coming Air, as well.

Apple Launches Repair Program for iPad Airs with Blank Screen Issues

Apple has rolled out a new support program for owners of 3rd Gen iPad Airs who are experiencing a particular problem. Evidently there are some Airs that have screens that randomly go blank and stay that way. Permanently. Some may exhibit some flickering or a flash before going blank, but once they go, it sounds like they come back.

We are just a few hours from the close of another decade and it’s a natural time to look back and see just how much things have changed in the last ten years. One of those big changes for Apple fans like myself has been the iPad.

Looking for an iPad for Christmas? Now is the Time to Buy!

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. If you are celebrating here in the US today, I hope you are having a wonderful day filled with family, fun and lots of good food. I am looking forward to heading next door (yes, my Holiday travel is absolutely BRUTAL) and partaking in our family’s traditional feast in about an hour. I can’t wait. For our fairly large crew, turkey is the sideshow. My Mom’s Chicken and Dumplings and Dressing are the stars of the show. I skipped breakfast to make room, so now I’m really hungry.

Ok, back to business…

iPadOS 13 in Action: External Storage Lightning Strikes

While I love several of the new features in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, the ability to use external storage is one I keep coming back to. It opens up lots of new and interesting possibilities that will make certain tasks easier and may even change the amount of internal storage in the iPads that we buy. As such, I’ve been pushing the limits to see what works and what doesn’t.

Review: UAG Metropolis for the 2019 iPad Air

I reviewed UAG’s Metropolis cases for the 11″ and 12.9″ iPad Pros earlier this year and came away very impressed with both. I can give the 12.9″ version even higher praise in that I am still using it as my primary case over four months later. It is good at home, but even better at work where I need more drop protection. In my opinion, both models check all the boxes that a good iPad Pro case should.

The New iPad Air: Stuck in the Middle with You

I spent most of yesterday taking the new iPad Mini for a spin and watching my daughter have a blast with it. Now it’s time to focus on the new iPad Air. Where the Mini felt almost foreign because I haven’t used one for so long, the new Air still feels quite familiar. Even though I didn’t hang onto it, I tried the 10.5″ iPad Pro when it was released in 2017. I really liked it, but the 12.9″ still won out, in the end.
