Apple’s Watch and iPad Event Went Exactly By the Numbers

Apple Watch Series 6

And that’s just fine

So Apple’s first of two or three streaming events this fall is in the books and, well, it was pretty uneventful. Other than pricing details for the new Apple Fitness+ and Apple One subscriptions, there really wasn’t anything major revealed today. I can’t remember if anyone predicted the Product RED Watch beforehand, but almost everything else was common knowledge.

However, that doesn’t mean that this event was irrelevant.

iPhone and iPad Leaks Continue to be a Moving Target

iPhone 11 Pro

First the iPhone 12 was coming in October. Then it was September. Now we have a report form a reliable (if less than likable) source saying that its October again. I guess it comes down to which leaker you trust the most.

An iPad Blast From the Past

iPad 2 as second screen

I was minding my own business this morning when I checked Facebook and got an interesting iPad-related blast from the past. Thanks to this Memory that showed up today, I was reminded that I was working in Marion, NC on a Building Automation System upgrade on July 9, 2011. I was doing a little work offsite at a local coffee shop when I took the photo above. After over two weeks out of town and 4 days in a row cooped up in my hotel room working on this upgrade, it was time for some new surroundings.

2020 11” iPad Pro

Rumors about Mini-LED iPads have been bouncing around for well over a year. Thanks to the effects of a worldwide pandemic, they have been all over the place in more recent months. First these new devices were coming in 2020 and later they were reported to be delayed until next year. The Mini-LED iPad Pro is still pegged for a 2021 debut. That said, now a report from DigiTimes says that Mini-LED could be back on for late 2020.

iPad Air Mockup

Ming-Chi Kuo was back a few days ago, calling for a new “iPad” in the second half of 2020. This report came courtesy of MacRumors. The problem is, we really don’t know which one model he’s talking about yet.

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.

My Decade with the iPad: Leaving the Fold

The iPad officially turned 10 years old yesterday! Hurray! A full decade has now passed and so much has changed with the hardware and software of the iPad and how I use them. It’s natural to look back after a milestone, so now is a good time to do just that. (You can see my previous strolls down memory lane here and here.)

Why Apple Hasn’t Admitted a Thing to Microsoft or Tom Warren

Earlier today I read an article by Tom Warren at The Verge entitled Apple finally admits Microsoft was right about tabletsI wasn’t especially surprised considering that Warren has always been completely MS-centric. He’s a good writer and does his job well, but I he’s not the guy I look to for even-handed reporting.

As a full-time Windows user myself and someone who certainly doesn’t dislike the platform, I still heartily disagree with his take in this article.

9to5Mac is Winning the Apple Rumor Cycle By a Mile

9to5Mac has been a trusted source for Apple news for a long time. However, I didn’t really consider them to be quite on the level with Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo when it came to new device and iOS rumors. Gui Rambo has made quite an impact over the last couple of years revealing lots of information hidden inside of Apple’s various OS betas, but those details don’t start coming until after WWDC, when those of us with Apple Dev Accounts get our hands on the goodies.
