What happens when an iPad Air and iPad Air 2 have a baby? You get the new iPad. The new 9.7” iPad that Apple recently released is a product that I am happy Apple has released. Even though I don’t agree with many of Apple’s recent decisions (including the discontinuation of the 32 GB iPad mini), […]
A decade of iOS. I look at my favourite features.
If your device could run iOS 8, then it could also run iOS 9. But was it any different to its predecessor?
Was iOS 8 a big update? Or was it just a refined iOS 7?
2012 saw Apple release iOS 6, which promised 200 new features. But did it really?
One of the biggest releases in iOS history, iOS 4 brought many new features, including FaceTime.
Apple corrects an error on their website which caused confusion over which iDevices would receive iOS 10.
Apples 2016 Worldwide Developer Conference has just finished – what does it mean for your iDevice and Mac?
When you buy an iPhone or iPad, Apple makes it pretty clear which operating systems support it, whether Mac OS X or Windows. They also tell you which version of iTunes is required. What they don’t tell you is that this can change with iOS updates, leaving you unable to sync your iPhone, iPad, or […]
The late 90s saw Apple take on it’s iconic range of devices beginning with i – starting a whole era of products. Has this era ended?
It can be frustrating when your beloved iDevice cries that it is full, but what can you do? I check out a new Mac tool called PhoneExpander that claims to easily free up some space.
The gory classic controversial splat fest racing game comes to a mobile phone near you.
I have a friend who has so far survived while living a smartphone- and tablet-free life. He is thinking of getting some small device to give him Internet access of the go. He quoted a mutual friend – an iPhone owner – who said that he got an iPad “because the apps are better”.
My road to the Mac has been a long one. While some of my earliest experiences with computers were on a Macintosh, it would take another 15 years before I would come to own one myself. Along the way I would discover a passion for computers and technology that continues to this day.
Following on from my previous article regarding How Long Will Apple Support Your Mac, this article looks at the support for iDevices.
Apple promoted the 4G iPad as having twice the performance, faster WiFi, and a new FaceTime HD camera. It was the first iPad with a Lightning connector, introduced with the iPhone 5 earlier in the year, and had improved 4G LTE support compared to the 3G iPad.
A lot smaller and just half the weight of a full-sized iPad, the iPad mini squeezed the features of the iPad 2 into much more portable package with a 7.9″ screen.
In 2012, The New iPad – as Apple called it – got its first Retina Display with a 2048 x 1535 pixel screen. It also received a quad-core graphics processor as part of its dual-core A5X CPU. It is commonly known as the 3G iPad.
Ever since Apple announced the iPad on January 27, 2010, people have asked, “Is the iPad a PC or not?” There has not been a clear-cut answer.
The traditional way of moving files to the iPad is to use the syncing function of iTunes. Music, videos, apps, notes, and bookmarks can all be moved from your Mac OS X desktop or laptop to the iPad. But what if you just want to move one file? You probably don’t want to fire up your […]
A bit smaller, one-third thinner, and a little lighter than the original iPad, the iPad 2 also moved the iPad line to Apple’s dual-core A5 processor. It was also the first iPad available in white or black.
I held out. I waited until I could actually pick up an iPad and handle it. I had to wait until a couple of mall rats stopped playing video games on it. Then it was mine.
With its color graphics, the Apple II had changed the world of personal computing. With its graphical interface and mouse, the Macintosh had further changed the computing world. With its massive storage and ease of use, the iPod had changed the MP3 market. With its touchscreen, the iPhone had changed the smartphone market. And then […]
Can we please stop talking about “game changers”? The iPad is the future of computing. No, wait, it’s a waste of money and typically crippled product from Apple.
