Apple now makes 56 different iPads – here’s how to choose the right one for you

Apple last week unveiled two new iPad models, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 — though only the iPad Air 2 received a significant upgrade — making the new devices available for purchase almost immediately. Many older models are still officially available on Apple’s site and in stores, including the original iPad mini that sells for just $249.

As Forbes points out, from $249 to $829 there are 56 different iPad configurations to choose from, with users having to decide on various factors including size (two options), memory (four choices, but not available across the board), colors (up to three versions), wireless connectivity (two options), and whether they need a fingerprint scanner in their iPad or not.

Apple unveils ‘the best tablet in the world': Meet the iPad Air 2

Apple’s iPad event is well underway and the company has just announced its next-generation flagship tablet, the iPad Air 2. As you might expect, the new device is the thinnest iPad Air yet released and measures in at 6.1 millimeters thin, or 18% thinner than the original iPad Air. The new tablet will also be the first device to run on the A8x, a new chipset with 3 billion transistors that will deliver an even better performance than the A8 chip found on the iPhone 6. The device also boasts 10 hours of battery life and features an M8 chip with support for a barometer and motion tracking sensors.

It’s no mystery that there is far less hype leading up to today’s Apple event than there was leading up the its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus unveiling back in September, but today’s special press conference is still one of the biggest events of the year for consumer tech. We won’t see any sleek new smartphones unveiled, of course, but Apple has plenty more up its sleeve for Apple fans in 2014, and the company is finally about to lay its card on the table.

So what’s in store for us today? New iPad tablets will definitely make an appearance, and we’ll absolutely see some new Mac computers debut along with OS X Yosemite release details. Apple might also have a few surprises in store, of course, so you won’t want to miss a moment of today’s big press event. More →

NYT: iPad Pro ‘not yet finished,’ not even considered ‘official’ at Apple

For most of the year, reports detailing a bigger 12.9-inch iPad, often referred to as the “iPad Pro,” offered contradicting views on Apple’s tablet plans. Some said Apple is indeed working on a bigger tablet, but others said the project has been shelved. While more and more reports have recently suggested that the iPad Pro will make its debut next year, The New York Times has learned the product isn’t even considered official within Apple yet.

Leak: Is this our first look at the brand new iPad Air 2?

Apple’s huge iPhone 6 and iWatch unveiling last month was probably the most hyped event Apple has ever hosted. The leaks and rumors leading up to Apple’s September press conference were off the charts, the social media chatter on launch day was crazy, and it ended up being BGR’s single biggest day of traffic ever by a shockingly wide margin. Everyone wanted to see Apple’s new iPhones (despite the fact that we had already seen them dozens of times in leaks) and find out when they would finally launch.

Fast-forward Thursday, just one month later, and the lead up to Apple’s big iPad and Mac event seems eerily quiet. Does anyone care about tablets and computers anymore? More →
