Apple today introduced iPad mini, a completely new iPad design that is 23 percent thinner and 53 percent lighter than the third generation iPad. The new iPad mini features a stunning 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, FaceTime HD and iSight cameras, ultrafast wireless performance¹ and an incredible 10 hours of battery life―every inch an iPad, yet in a revolutionary design you can hold in one hand. Apple today also announced the fourth generation iPad featuring a gorgeous 9.7-inch Retina display, new Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera and ultrafast wireless performance. Both iPad mini and fourth generation iPad come with iOS 6, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features.
It seems like time goes by so quickly. It has already been a year since Apple founder Steve Jobs lost his fight with pancreatic cancer on October 5, 2011. While he is gone he is definitely not forgotten. Some say without his vision and business savvy we would have never seen personal computers. And no one can argue that Steve gave the best Keynote speeches and presentations. He had a way to captivate the audience unlike anyone else. In remembrance of Steve Apple has posted a short video on its homepage with sound bites and photos of Steve throughout the years.
Myself along with many others thought we would see an iPad Mini announcement the same day Apple announced the iPhone 5, but there was no announcement to be made. The Wall Street Journal posted an article yesterday saying that Asian suppliers have already started production on the new, smaller iPad. Now today the Australian blog Product Feedback have posted pictures and a video of Cygnett cases specially made for the iPad Mini. So we have to assume the iPad Mini is all but announced.
If you purchased a new iPhone 5, or upgraded your current iPhone to iOS 6 you noticed that your Maps apps is not longer a Google app, but Apple’s own. Many people are unhappy with these maps and really think that they should have stuck with Google. Now Apple is admitting that their Maps app is not up to snuff. In an open letter to the Apple faithful Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized for not delivering a “World Class” product and suggested using competitors products from the likes of Bing, MapQuest, Google and Nokia, at least until Apple sorts this mess out.
Just 12 hours after going on sale September 14th at 3:01AM EST Apple’s iPhone 5 pre-orders have sold out. So if you did not get your pre-order in you could be waiting up to 2-5 weeks to get your brand new iPhone. Even though to most people the iPhone 5 was not something that really blew them away as expected since this is a brand new Apple product they are in high demand.
Earlier today all eyes were on Apple as they unveiled their latest iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 5. The event left many people wondering is this enough to keep Apple and the iPhone as the “must have” smartphone of today. The iPhone 5 was pretty much everything we expected, almost all of the major rumors were confirmed today. Are you a current iPhone 3GS, 4, or 4S owner? This article will go over the new iPhone 5 and let you know if it is worth upgrading or even purchasing the iPhone 5 as your first iOS device.
Apple has just sent out invitations to members of the press for an event on September 12, 2012. The invitation shows a large number “12” with a prominent shadow of a number “5”. It is no question that this event is where Apple will announce the next iPhone, referred to as many as the iPhone 5. After seeing the invitation there is no doubt that the new iPhone will be called the iPhone 5. The event will be held at 10AM Pacific Time (1PM Eastern) at San Francisco’s Buena Center for the Arts.
Rumors and leaks for the iPhone 5 have been all over the internet for the past few months. I don’t think there has been a day when I haven’t seen something about Apple’s upcoming iPhone. There are some things that we know already, it will have a larger touchscreen, 4G LTE connectivity, and a smaller dock connector. Now it is very likely that it will now receive a processor upgrade to an A6 processor.
Sonny Dickson of 9to5Mac tweeted a photo showing a supposed iPhone 5 board containing an A6 chip.
Earlier today Apple announced their 3rd generation iPad, not called the iPad 3 or iPad HD, just simply “the new iPad”. Just like all Apple announcements and keynotes it was very impressive and filled with information and demos. The biggest changes are obviously the display and new processor. With the new iPad you get the A5X processor (dual-core CPU and quad-core GPU) and Retina Display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536. The biggest question is on March 16th will you be buying this new iPad if you already own one of the earlier generation iPad’s or another tablet? Read on as we give you a full run-down of the features and specifications.
