Our favorite new iPhone feature Apple added in iOS 9.2

Better late than never, as the saying goes, and this time we’re talking about the iPhone getting a feature you’d think it should have had from the get-go. iOS 9.2 has added support for SD cards to all iPhone models with which the software is compatible (you can find the full list right here). That means you can connect a Lightning to SD Card Reader adapter or even a digital camera to the iPhone and transfer pictures directly to the iPhone, completely eliminating the need for an intermediary PC.

iPad Pro Display Issue

Apple has confirmed a major iPad Pro display issue

Apple has confirmed a major iPad Pro display issue

It wouldn’t be an Apple product launch if we couldn’t find an issue to nitpick, so you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that some iPad Pro owners are less than satisfied with their purchases. But unlike ‘Bendgate‘ or ‘Chipgate,’ the issue that customers are running into with their iPad Pros isn’t entirely trivial. More →

iPad Pro Vs. MacBook

Why is Tim Cook sacrificing the Mac at the altar of the iPad?

Why is Tim Cook sacrificing the Mac at the altar of the iPad?

What in the world is Tim Cook thinking? Ahead of the iPad Pro’s release later this week, Tim Cook put on his salesman hat and took some time to talk to The Telegraph about Apple’s soon to be released gargantuan tablet.

In an effort to drum up hype for the company’s new iPad, Tim Cook was all too willing to throw the Mac completely under the bus.

“I think if you’re looking at a PC, why would you buy a PC anymore?” Cook rhetorically asked. “No really, why would you buy one?”

iPad Pro beats Retina MacBook, MacBook Pro and Surface Pro 4 in benchmarks

iPad Pro beats Retina MacBook, MacBook Pro and Surface Pro 4 in benchmarks

The iPad Pro might not be ready to replace your PC just yet as Apple CEO Tim Cook would like it to, but the bigger tablet certainly has what it takes to pull it off. The hardware is there, many reviews have shown, though there’s plenty of work on the software side to turn the iPad Pro into the mobile computer that will replace your traditional PC.

One interesting thing certain reviews showed is that the iPad Pro’s hardware is so powerful that the tablet will be able to beat many competitors in benchmark tests, including the latest MacBooks and the Surface Pro 4.

In fact, it appears Apple’s processors has come to a point where it could become the chip of choice for MacBooks, assuming Apple is ready to replace Intel’s CPUs. More →

Apple’s iPad Pro finally has a release date

November is going to be a busy month for Apple.

With respect to the former, consumers can already pick up Apple’s new set-top box from Apple retail stores and from Best Buy. With respect to the latter, we finally have a release date for Apple’s gargantuan tablet — November 11.

iPad Pro Sales

Is the iPad Pro Apple’s last real chance to revive slumping iPad sales?

Is the iPad Pro Apple’s last real chance to revive slumping iPad sales?

With each passing quarter, it’s getting harder and harder to ignore the fact that the iPad might be on the verge of becoming a has-been product just as quickly as it became a bona-fide success. There’s simply no getting around it: the iPad is in trouble.

The iPad has been in a precarious position for some time now, with sales trending downward over the course of a number of consecutive quarters. In other words, this isn’t a seasonal issue nor a temporary phenomenon. Yesterday, Apple revealed that it sold 9.8 million iPads during its most recent quarter, representing a 20% drop in year over year sales and a corresponding 20% drop in year over year revenue. In fact, Apple’s most recent quarter marks the first time that iPad sales have checked in below 10 million units since mid-2011.

Clearly, something is amiss.

Microsoft just made the laptop of my dreams, and I can’t wait for Apple to copy it

Microsoft just made the laptop of my dreams, and I can’t wait for Apple to copy it

Even though we’re in the “post PC” era where smartphones and tablets are the new norm, I still find I use my laptop a lot. Yet I’m also dreaming about a different kind of laptop like the one Microsoft just announced that combines the past with the future.

The Surface Book is essentially a slimmer, better-looking version of the Surface Pro 4. In fact, the two are both able to offer similar performance for day-to-day use, though the Surface Book is practically Microsoft’s answer to Apple’s MacBook Pro and iPad Pro, and therefore an even more powerful machine than the Surface Pro 4.

In other words, Microsoft just made the laptop of my dreams. It has a touchscreen. It has a keyboard. It has a hot operating system. But I can’t wait for Apple to copy it given that I’m so anchored in OS X and iOS. More →
