The iPad Mini will be more Pro than ever

Many people thought we would be seeing the iPad Mini at Apple’s Spring Loaded Event this year but of course, that didn’t happen. The event was focused on the iPad Pro and some other products with no mention of the new iPad Mini. While many thought that meant we won’t be seeing a refresh of the iPad Mini this year, it’s not true.

Things might be a little different than we expected.

Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that we’d be seeing the new iPad Mini in “Q1 (first quarter) of 2021”, but in a more recent research note, he stated…

Here are some details to hold you over until September!

It’s fair to say a lot of people have been waiting for a 120Hz iPhone display for years, and it’s finally happening.

According to a new report by supply chain outlet The Elec, the iPhone 13 Pro series is on track to getting 120Hz this year.

In case you don’t know, a 120Hz display displays 120 images per second, while a 60Hz display 60 images per second. The higher the number — the smoother everything on the screen will move.

The report says that both LG and Samsung (Apple’s display suppliers) are currently producing the new LTPO 120Hz displays on…

You don’t want to make the wrong choice

The M1 chip is nothing short of a revolution in computing circles.

It was released less than a year ago and it has shaken up the market to its core. The idea that a company that had never made its own laptop and desktop CPUs could make the fastest, most effective one would have been a ludicrous idea just 2 years ago.

The rumor mills are running full speed with news of the M1 successor — the M2 (sometimes referred to as the M1X). …

Here’s everything you need to know about this accessory

As the Magic Keyboard costs an astonishing $349 for the 12.9-inch model, and $299 for the 11-inch, we can conclude that Apple isn’t pricing these based on the component and manufacturing cost and maybe adding a sensible markup… right?
Apple is pricing this accessory based on the value it brings to the user.

Value-based pricing isn’t anything new, and Apple isn’t the first one to do it. People have different opinions on whether or not it’s a fair way to do things.

For now, let’s talk about what this accessory really does!

The keyboard itself is finished in a soft-touch…

And what this means for future Macs

The new 24-inch iMac has the same M1 chip as the other new Macs. However, some are wondering if, with the addition of the two extra fans, this machine could outperform the others. The quick answer to this is NO, and we know this from looking at benchmarks.

The Geekbench score for the M1 iMac was 1724 for single-core, and 7453 for multi-core.

This is pretty much on par with the Mac Mini and MacBook Pro which have the same identical chip and only one smaller fan.

Fans only come into play when doing intensive stuff over longer periods of…

The fastest tablet ever is almost here

According to multiple Twitter users and Apple fans, Apple is starting to ship out the M1 iPads, as people are seeing their orders shift to a “preparing to ship” status. Apple has not provided an exact delivery date, but the iPads will start delivering on May 21.

Over the last few days, a number of Geekbench tests have been appearing from the latest M1 iPad.

You might be asking yourself “how these are appearing before the actual release of the device?”
Well, it is likely an employee at Apple has been playing around with the new iPad and tested Geekbench…

The MacBook “Air” will be more Pro than ever

Courtesy of Jon Prosser (credible Apple analyst), we have our first look at the M2 MacBook. The leaked design has been met with some controversy, especially regarding the white bezels and keyboard.

This machine could replace your Mac!

If we go back in time to when the iPad was first released 11 years ago, Steve Jobs made it clear that the iPad was meant to be a device that sat in the middle, between the iPhone and the MacBook. Since then, the iPad has gone through dozens of upgrades and has become a device that could easily compete with the MacBook.

As the iPad still runs a mobile operating system and is a touch screen device —people think of it as a much bigger, more powerful iPhone. This used to be an accurate description, until recently.

In recent…

Here’s where the true differences lie

Apple recently announced two new iPads powered by the M1 chip.

Both of the new M1 iPads look pretty much identical to the last two models.
One upgrade is the new 12MP ultra-wide front camera that can detect faces and pan/zoom accordingly so all faces detected fit in the frame. This is a great feature because it allows the camera to “follow” you which might fix the uncomfortable camera view when you’re video conferencing in landscape mode.

Both new iPads get USB 4 and Thunderbolt support through the type C port. This should mean faster file transfers from external drives.

Here’s who should invest in these headphones

The AirPods Max is Apple’s first-ever pair of over-ear Bluetooth headphones, sitting alongside the original AirPods and the AirPods Pro.

It features a knit mesh band to reduce head pressure, a stainless steel frame, and ear pads made of soft foam.

Not only are the ear pads magnetic and easily replaceable, but they are also extra deep. The extra space in the ear cup helps evenly distribute the weight on your head, and most importantly — ensure a good seal for proper isolation. …
