We reported a couple of weeks ago that Apple would be unveiling a couple of new products in the middle of March, and we're now learning that the company plans to sell them mere days later. That's an atypical move for Apple, and it comes with a second atypical move: there will be no pre-orders. With production of both products having been ramped-up Read more...
To outsiders looking in, it might seem as though Apple devices sell themselves. That isn't really the case, and if you pay attention to Apple's quarterly earnings reports, you'll notice that no matter how well the company performs, its stock price drops at the slightest hint that a particular product line or service...

Analysts have been predicting gloom and doom for Apple for the past few months, as you can see from its stock price which has dipped below $100 again after reaching highs in the $130s early in 2015.

Apple released the first beta for its upcoming iOS 9.3 update and with it is a new website that lays out the new features and functionality.

Much like with its iPhone, it was difficult to predict the kind of success Apple's iPad tablet would have when it was first launched.

As we discovered just the other day, Apple's latest iPad, Pro, isn't too repairable, scoring just 3 out of 10 on iFixit's scale - 10 being the best. Somewhat humorously, that's still a lot better the 1 out of 10 score the Surface Book received earlier this month. Nonetheless, the teardown helped highlight a feature... Read more...

It's hard to believe that anyone would think that a $1.3 billion roll out of iPads to students would be a good idea, or deliver the kind of return-of-investment to warrant it, but it's apparent that a Los Angeles school district did. Earlier this year, we reported on how the pilot program failed spectacularly... Read more...
After first announcing the operating system in June, Apple is now ready to make iOS 9 available to the masses.

If you know anyone that’s been a longtime iOS user, chances are that they have a “junk” folder on their device that is used to banish unwanted Apple apps that they don’t use. These apps come preinstalled with every iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and cannot be deleted. They can’t even be hidden unless you jailbreak — but... Read more...

Last Wednesday was a big one for Apple thanks to its announcement of the latest iPhones, its next-gen Apple TV, as well as its much-anticipated iPad Pro.

Apple kicked off its major 2015 iOS hardware push today with the announcement of the long-rumored iPad Pro. The device features a massive 12.9-inch display, which is quite a step up from the 7.9-inch iPad mini and 9.7-inch iPad Air 2. This Retina-class display packs in 5.6 million pixels, which is more than what’s... Read more...
Apple didn't invent the tablet, but with the introduction of the iPad, it certainly popularized such devices. There were long lines for the original iPad model, and when Android device makers began offering less expensive alternatives, there was this silly talk of a post-PC era (as if!). Well, dedicated PCs are still... Read more...
Wall Street is a fickle bunch; they build you up only to knock you down just as quickly. Such is the case for Apple, which this afternoon reported its fiscal Q3 2015 earnings. By almost any account, Apple had a stellar quarter, reporting revenue of $49.6 billion (a 33 percent increase year-over-year) and net profit of... Read more...

Imagine that without any misguided action or behavior of your own your iOS device were to crash, simply as the result of receiving a text string via your iPhone or iPad's Messages app. Next, imagine that after this "What the heck!??!!" event (and device reboot, of course) you subsequently could not even open the...

Do you remember that 80s flick Cocoon, where senior citizens received new leases on life (along with youthful exuberance) by taking a dip in a pool that was occupied by alien lifeforms? Well, Apple looks to have its own fountain of youth for older iOS devices in the form of iOS 9. As we reported earlier this year... Read more...
Apple appears to be readying new, larger iPads that will feature split-screen app viewing and multi-user support.

Little is known about the new iPads at this point, though The Wall Street Journal has... Read more...
Tablets remain a big business despite the fact that sales slumped nearly six percent year-over-year during Q1 – 47.1 million tablets were shipped in Q1 alone. Apple remained the segment leader with its popular iPads, but it witnessed a 22.9 percent year-over-year sales slump. Samsung is in second with a 19.1 percent... Read more...
As each day passes, it becomes more and more likely that Apple will soon introduce a larger iPad, 'iPad Pro', that will cater to the professional market.
