Is Apple Really Working on a Folding iPad?

A few days ago, 9to5Mac ran a piece covering a rumor that Apple may be working on an iPad with a folding screen and 5G. The rumor originated with IHS Markit analyst Jeff Lin, via Economic Daily News. It certainly sounds enticing. While Samsung and Huawei struggle to get a first-gen phone out the door, Apple zags and focuses on bringing foldable tech to a bigger device with fewer risks and pitfalls.

Apple is Dabbling in Multi-User Support. When Will it Come to iPad?

At WWDC, Apple announced that they would finally be adding multi-user support to one of their mobile operating systems. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the one most of us have been asking for. The first round goes to the tvOS and the Apple TV, which will now have separate recommendations and favorites for different users. An honorary mention also goes to the HomePod, which will now be able to recognize voice commands from multiple users and respond with information from their iCloud account.

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.

Mark Gurman Throws Down the Apple Leak Gauntlet

Remember a few years ago when Tim Cook said Apple was doubling down on security? Remember when it looked like it was actually working, like when all the new iPad features in iOS 11 remained a surprise until WWDC. That seems like a long time ago now.

The Yin and Yang of the Galaxy Fold

Many Apple fans are enjoying sitting back and watching Samsung squirm their way through a disastrous product launch…again. You can’t excuse the sloppiness of the Galaxy Fold and how rushed it was in the race to be first to market. An attempt to be innovative isn’t enough to cover up the hardware failures and suspect design.

All that said, while it is easy to make fun of “the enemy” when they fail, that really doesn’t accomplish anything productive. No more so than when fans of Samsung’s products throw stones at Apple for playing it safe or for iterating on or polishing up existing features. In truth, there is good and bad to both company’s approaches.

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.

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.

The iPad Lineup Makes Sense Again!

Ever since the first iPad Pro was released, Apple’s tablet lineup have been kind of a jumbled up mess. You had models that were too close together in price and specs, like the iPad Air 2 and original iPad Pro. You had the iPad Air 2 on closeout while Apple was selling the new 9.7″ iPad Pro. The two tablets looked exactly the same and were only separated by Pencil support and a few other specs.
