iPadOS 15 wish list for improving iPad quality of life sans Mac

We’re a week away from Apple previewing iPadOS 15 at WWDC, and we’re all hoping for a substantial software upgrade for the iPad. Not just the low-hanging fruit from iOS 14 that didn’t come to the iPad, but a significant leap forward for pro users on the iPad Pro. I’ve spent the first week using […]

iPadOS limits iPad Pro power: apps only able to use up to 5 GB RAM each

The launch of the new iPad Pro with M1 chip has once again sparked conversation about how the iPad hardware is vastly outpacing the operating system and software ecosystem that it can run. Many people are setting their hopes on iPadOS 15 at WWDC to announce overhauls to multitasking, external display support and file management […]

Apple can’t advertise the best feature of the iPad Pro (yet)

Buying a new iPad always brings me to the same gigantic question: What do I do with it? My work life can fit on a MacBook Air, and my personal life fits on an iPhone. If the iPad Pro can’t completely replace at least one of those for me, then where exactly does it fit?

Comment: An iPadOS update is overdue, but it won’t change much for me

With the new iPad Pro models out, there has been another flurry of comments about the urgent need for an iPadOS update to allow the software to catch up with the hardware. I absolutely agree – but for me, none of the rumored improvements expected from iPadOS 15 address the single biggest difference between an […]

12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021): Mixed verdict on mini-LED screen; new camera features impress

Robot dogs (we can explain) on iPad Pro My rationale for buying the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro is simple: I’m dissatisfied with the state of multitasking on iPadOS, but this is the best hardware to evaluate current and future software versions. And if iPadOS 15 doesn’t save the day at WWDC, this iPad Pro has […]

Comment: It’s time for a nano-texture iPad and MacBook option

As Apple continues its transition to Apple Silicon in the Mac, and introduces new iPad Pro models, I am once again here to ask for a nano-texture display option on more products. Apple last year debuted a 27-inch iMac with the nano-texture matte display option from the Pro Display XDR, and I’d like to see […]

Opinion: The new iPad Pro is an incredible technological feat, but why should you upgrade?

Just a few weeks ago, I shared my thoughts on why the 2018 iPad Pro is one of the best products Apple has ever made and talked about how it was “one of the most future-proof computers ever made.” The key point I was trying to convey was that the 2020 iPad Pro wasn’t worth […]

TUAW notes that inside the USB device profiles of iOS 5 are profiles for two never before seen devices called “iPad3,1” and “iPad3,2.”  Obviosuly Apple is going to be making more iPads in the future and devices often show up in these profiles many months before they are delivered.  However, there was some speculation earlier this […]

Engineers are dreaming up iPad robots

Patently Apple today publishes some interesting new patents from developers including what appears to be an “iRobot” (oops, name taken) built around an iPad head. iRobot’s introductory abstract describes the invention this way: “A robot system includes a mobile robot having a controller executing a […]

WSJ: Analysts now agree we’re going to see new Retina Macs in June

A newly redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro was all but rumor until we reported earlier this month that Apple indeed has a slimmed down, all-new MacBook Pro sporting a Retina display, Ivy Bridge, and speedy USB 3. We followed that up with a report revealing Apple’s new MacBook Airs and iMacs will both likely include super-high resolution Retina displays. At the time, we reported Apple’s WWDC in June would be expected for at least the unveiling of the new slim MacBook Pro; although, a gradual roll out of Retina iMacs and Airs following the Pros would not be much of a surprise. Apple typically rolls out new Mac features such as higher-res displays gradually.

Following those reports, The Wall Street Journal published a story today quoting analysts who now all seem to agree that we will see upgraded Macs this summer. Ben Reitzes of Barclays Capital claimed the new Retina Mac lineup would debut at WWDC in June:

Reitzes said it is likely the Mac line will feature the retina-display technology used in the iPad, as well as the new Ivy Bridge quad-core processors from Intel Corp. (INTC) He also estimates that Apple’s new operating-system upgrade, called Mountain Lion, and the new MacBook Airs should be on the market before the first Ultrabook laptops with Microsoft Corp.’s (MSFT) Windows 8 operating system hit the shelves in the fall… “We believe recent data reflect a pause ahead of new products, which we believe will be released this quarter in June,” according to Reitzes, who has an overweight rating and $750 target price on Apple’s stock.

Report: Apple’s iOS 6 Maps app with 3D mapping gets rendered [Photos]

This is an almost entirely correct render of the new Maps app. BGR just posted a few images of Apple’s iOS 6 Maps app with 3D mapping that 9to5Mac first revealed earlier this month. Their “trusted source” released these screenshots, which give subsequent validity to the claims that Apple has worked on an in-house mapping solution for years […]

Munster: Next iPhone will be ‘Mother of all Upgrades’ (video)

[vodpod id=Video.16399282&w=650&h=350&fv=me%3Dooyala_player%26amp%3BembedCode%3DtjcjdpNDor0BP4iuS92Ij1QuwAfsmM-x%26a]

Yesterday, we reported that Qualcomm announced it was having “trouble meeting demand” for its next-generation chips that would likely find their way into an LTE-enabled iPhone 5. While the announcement was a clear indication that Apple’s rumored October release window was much more likely than talk of a June unveiling at WWDC, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster agreed and said the new device will be the mother of all hardware upgrades:

“We think one of the big features of iPhone 5 is going to be LTE… when iPhone 4S came out it was obviously the same form factor… this is going to be a big hardware upgrade… this is going to be the year of the hardware… the mother of all upgrades “
