That’s the way it goes in the tech world. By the time the new thing arrives, the news cycle is already well on to the next thing. This goes double with Apple. As the new iPhones 11 and Apple Watches arrive in the hands of eager buyers (including myself) later today, there have already been a lot of reports on what seems to be an inevitable October event, as well as a lot of rumors on next year’s iPhone. Yeah, the tech press isn’t known for its patience waiting for the next leak or story.

Is Apple Listening to Us?

There was a moment during Apple’s iPhone Event last week that got a lot of people’s attention, mine included. When Phil Schiller started talking about significantly better battery life for all new iPhone models, tech writers, bloggers, and aficionados alike took notice. It was even bigger news when early reviews confirmed Apple’s claims.

This is exactly what many of us have been asking Apple to give us for a while now. However, they have usually seemed too concerned with thin and light to worry about adding battery capacity.

Is the iPad Underappreciated?

I noticed an article at analyst site Seeking Alpha last week that caught my eye. It was titled Apple’s Accelerating Tablet Dominance Is Underappreciated and it went over several points that Apple’s tablet lineup now has in its favor. Writer Zvi Bar makes some pretty convincing arguments, but does it matter?

The Brydge Pro is the Best iPad Keyboard I’ve Ever Used

I’ve heard about the Brydge Keyboard for the iPad for years and seen the glowing reviews. However, I have typically stuck with products from ZAGG and Logitech, as they tend to be a little less expensive and provide more coverage as cases. The main thing that kept me from trying the more expensive Brydge was the fact that it was much more keyboard than case, leaving the back of the iPad completely exposed. The other cases I tried had very good keyboards and provided excellent protection, making them better overall choices for me at the time.

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.

Installing the iOS 13 Beta Using a Windows 10 Computer

I feel compelled to add to my post from earlier today, because the instructions in the Redmond Pie article I linked to left something to be desired. I have a feeling they didn’t try them out before they posted it, because they don’t work without some extra steps and considerations. So if you are a Windows user, have an Apple Dev Account and want to give the iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 Beta a go, here is what you need to do.

WWDC Preview Part 1: All’s Quiet on the iPad Front

In a little less than 24 hours, Tim Cook will take the stage and Apple’s 2019 WWDC Keynote will begin. It’s usually a lengthy event that will reveal the company’s software roadmap for all of its devices and services for the next year. Considering that Apple only has a few public-facing events per year and that WWDC is the only one that touches on all Apple’s entire ecosystem, it is probably the biggest. In fact, with the iPhone having leveled out in growth, WWDC should become the unquestioned king of Apple events going forward.

Apps to Help Bridge the Gaps Between the iPad Pro and a Laptop

I use my iPad Pro as a secondary/personal device, but there are many people who prefer to take the plunge and make it their so-called daily driver machine. More power to them. While I am not in a position to use an iPad as my primary computer at work, I know that it is capable of handling the majority of tasks for many kinds of jobs. I also know a few other who, like me, use an iPad of some kind as their primary home device.

Is Mouse Support Finally Coming to the iPad Pro in iOS 13?

Apple fans have been wondering if the company would ever touch this third rail of the iPad. The device started its life as a hard core touch-only tablet. However, as it morphed into a more powerful device that could take on more tasks, Apple began to slowly add new features.

Apple broke with Steve Jobs’ derogatory statements on the concept of the stylus with the addition of the Apple Pencil. Well, sort of. The Pencil isn’t the sole input method for the iPad like the styli of old, but its arrival definitely marked a shift for Apple’s tablet. It sounds like Apple is about to cross the next big iPad input divide with iOS 13.

Fresh Rumors of Coming iOS 13 Features are Good News for iPad Users

Guilherme Rambo of 9to5Mac is at it again. He posted an article at 9to5Mac this morning that details several new features that should be coming in iOS 13. While his attributed sources are a very vague “people familiar with the development of the operating system,” he has become a reliable enough source of Apple and iOS data that anything he is reporting should be taken seriously.
