iOS 12.1 Spills the Beans on the Coming iPad Pros

No one but the cool kids have gotten their hands on the new iPhones and Apple Watches yet, and we are already getting fresh reports on what’s coming next. Considering that the news is about the now all but official iPad Pros, I’m all for it.

The Remains of the Apple Event and What We Didn’t Get

The iPhones XS, XS Max, and XR and the Apple Watch Series 4 weren’t all that was announced today. There were just a few other morsels that Tim Cook briefly covered at the end of the event. Continue reading

Tune in at 10 AM Pacific to catch all the action live.

A Month with the Surface Go: Hardware Design and Build Quality

As I mentioned in a previous post, I picked up the higher end of the two Surface Go models right after release, along with a Type Cover and a Surface Pen. I’ve taken my time with the device, and used it in different situations to try to get a feel for it. Being that I am already a Windows user at work who’s had a Lenovo Yoga (original), Yoga 2, and Yoga 720 spanning the last five years, the experience certainly isn’t unfamiliar. The Yoga has been a very good touchscreen ultrabook line since the original, and I have no complaints with it as a laptop.

The Yogas can also be used as tablets, although that experience certainly leaves something to be desired. Frankly, a LOT to be desired. Ultimately, my ambivalence toward touch on Windows based on my experience with what is a good, high-end touchscreen convertible device kept my interest in Microsoft’s Surface products low over the years.

Not to be outdone by 9to5Mac and Mark Gurman, Ming-Chi Kuo has leaked some new information (via MacRumors) on the coming iPad Pros, the Apple Watch, and other odds and ends ahead of Apple’s event on Wednesday. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights, and whether they make sense or not.

A Render of the New 12.9″ iPad Pro Surfaces…Maybe

Photo Source: MySmartPrice

Some new reports of the potential upcoming iPad Pros surfaced yesterday. MySmartPrice and noted device leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known as Steve H on Twitter, posted a render of the supposed new 12.9″ iPad Pro based on earlier CAD design leaks. I say supposed because both sources are clear that they aren’t 100% sure about this information.

I’m Just Over Here Holding Out Hope for Pencil Support on the New iPhone

I’ve been begging for it for the last two years. With the big changes that came with the X, I was hoping that last year would be the year. However, it wasn’t to be. I can understand it, since there was already so much going on with the new design. I thought this would be the year. A new, large screen iPhone X Plus sounded like the perfect candidate. There was even a rumor a few days ago that gave me hope, but I lost a little of it today.

So Which iPad Pro Are You Interested In?

As clear and consistent as the rumors have been, I think we can take them at face value at this point. New iPad Pros with little to no bezels, Face ID, and no Home Buttons are on the way, and could be here as soon as mid-September. Reports have also been consistent that both current sizes, 10.5″ and 12.9″, will be upgraded.

Leaks Showing a New Port on the Back of the iPad Pro are Starting to Add Up

Photo Source: Slashleaks

Just shy of a month ago, I dismissed rumors that Apple would release an iPad Pro with Face ID locked to portrait orientation, as it currently is on the iPhone X. That same report from Japanese site Macotakara also said that, because of Face ID being locked to portrait, Apple would be moving the Smart Connector to a new location just above the Lightning Port. I was completely unconvinced, as none of this made any sense.

Spending Time with the Surface Go

I may be the editor for a site that got its start exclusively covering the iPad, but I am also a lifelong Windows user. It is the only platform I can use for work, because all of the software in my field of expertise is Windows-based. The only path I have to using a Mac at work is via virtual machines, and that just isn’t attractive to me. That isn’t the only reason, though. I have always used Microsoft Windows, going back to my student days. That familiarity is hard to shake, especially when I’ve never been faced with a convincing reason to leave the platform for unfamiliar waters.

Mounting Reports Point to a Huge Autumn for Apple

Photo Source: 9to5Mac

It won’t be long now. An Apple Event to announce a new iPhone lineup and potentially several other devices is less than a month away. The fact that there are three new phones coming is really old news. Like 10 months old, at this point. The rumor mill never sleeps, right? The sizes, screen types, resolutions, astrological signs, etc of these phones have also been widely publicized over the last six months. We are close enough to the event now that this information should actually be reliable. Honestly, its nice to see that the leakers got it right this year. It’s been relatively drama free now that no one really cares about notches, missing headphone jacks, or the end of TouchID.
