The third and latest generation of Apple's popular iOS tablet, the new iPad was announced on May 7th and will be made available in some retail stores by March 16th. One of the largest features of the new iPad is its Retina display with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, containing 1 million more pixels than the standard 1080p HDTV on a 9.7-inch display. Other new features of the latest iPad include, 4g LTE connectivity, a new five-megapixel rear facing camera and the new A5X processor with quad core graphics. Read on for the latest Apple iPad news, reviews and videos:

    Last week, Apple released the latest addition to its popular iPad lineup, the iPad Air. It's lighter, thinner, and narrower than all full-sized iPads before it. But how does it actually stack up to its predecessors? We put the iPad Air up against the iPad 3 this time around. With the same displays, similar internals, and the exact same software, the two tablets have quite a lot in common. But are the iPad Air's improvements worth the extra cash? Should you upgrade from your old iPad to the Air? Watch this iPad Air vs old iPad comparison to find out!

    iOS 7 is live, and, as we've recently learned from our poll, most users can't wait to experience Apple's latest and greatest. However, first, you have to own a compatible device. The list includes the iPhone 4 and 4S (partially), as well as the iPhone 5 (full support) -- in addition to the 5C and 5S that will have iOS 7 installed out-of-the-box. Tablet compatibility includes iPad 2 and 3 (partially), as well as the iPad 4 (full support), in addition to the iPad mini. Second, as usual with major Apple software updates, you'll have to have a lot of patience. Everyone will be slamming the ...

    A couple days back, we had the chance to go hands-on with Samsung's newest tablet, the big, high-res Galaxy Note 10.1. From the S-pen support, to the choice of processors, to the new faux-leather-texture back panel (complete with that darling fake stitchwork), the new 10.1 shares more than just a name with the also-brand-new Note 3. As the new Samsung tablet heavyweight to beat, we were interested to see how it would compare to its competition, so swung back around Samsung's way for another look at the Note 10.1 2014 edition, this time with an iPad in tow. Sure, Apple's likely to be just ...

    I've always been a huge fan of the Matrix Trilogy, and I'm sure many of you are as well. There's one thing I always remember the Oracle telling Neo when things began to get rough, and it was: "Everything that has a beginning must have an end". And it's true, regardless of where you heard the phrase, it's a fact of life that what goes up, must come down at some point. It happened to Apple in the early 80s, to IBM early last decade, to HP just a couple of years ago, to Palm in that same time period, Nokia, you name it. It's hard to determine what we should classify as basic human needs, ...

    iOS 7 is one of those things that you'll either love, hate, or simply put-up with if you already own an iOS device. Some of us have been waiting for it for a long time. In full honesty, I think I was ready for a change even before Apple announced that there would be an iPad running it. Apple did a good job in polishing it and to keep me as their customer, but 2013 had to be a year of change for me, or else. Some people hated the previous version of iOS for Apple's choice in design, but I'll admit that I actually liked it. As fake as it could be, it did a good job in looking elegant on my ...

    It's been two weeks since Apple released iOS 7 beta to developers, and even though it's a dramatic refresh to the user interface, that doesn't mean that like every piece of pre-production software, it didn't have its significant bugs. Apple has now released iOS 7 beta 2, and among the changes we have some apparent enhancements to how natural the voice of Siri is, the voice recorder app returns to the iPhone, and other bug fixes here and there. Probably the coolest news about this update is that iOS 7 now works on the iPad. In this video we go hands-on this new refresh to Apple's tablet ...

    We recently had the opportunity to review the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, an experience we enjoyed primarily because of the device's innovative hardware: a 6.9mm-thick, 495g chassis that manages to squeeze water- and dust-resistance onto its list of features. Pocketnow is currently in the midst of reviewing the BlackBerry Q10, a peculiar blend of yesterday's design cues with a modern OS - and we're enjoying the feeling of real physical keys under our thumbs again. The third-generation Apple iPad and Microsoft's Surface RT also share space in our office, and we love the sturdy (if heavy) hardware ...

    The Xperia Tablet Z is the thinnest, lightest, most beautiful 10-inch Android tablet we've ever come across - but it's still a 10-inch Android tablet, and thus still at a disadvantage in terms of a tablet app ecosystem. That said, we've given Sony's latest slate the full review treatment and found it to be pretty impressive. Between its portability, vibrant display, and water resistance, "the Z" brings plenty to the table in the fight against other, more popular tablet computers. Ultimately, though, in a punch-for-punch contest, how does Sony's super-slim beauty stack up against Apple's ...

    Stuff comes up, folks. Sometimes you've got a pressing appointment in Romania, or a meeting scheduled in Media, PA. Sometimes you're at the day job, other times you're off the grid somewhere in the country. Other times you're buying a car. These things happen. Fortunately for us, these things don't usually happen all at once, which means the Pocketnow Weekly podcast usually features more than two people on the air. But today, listeners, Lady Luck was not with us. Today, Sam the Scheduler was out sick, because every member of the Pocketnow team was otherwise engaged when it came time to ...

    With close to 2,000 stores in the US and Canada, Staples is one large office supply chain store which definitely needs no introduction if you live in one of the 26 countries worldwide in which it is present, including the USA. In Canada you are already able to purchase Apple products from Staples and it looks like the US is not far away with that either. Apple might be expanding its US distribution with the addition of Staples, even though neither company officially confirmed the report. However, Staples employees took the news to their Twitter accounts: Regis Mulot, SVP of Global Human ...

    So you jailbroke your iPhone or iPad after the evasi0n jailbreak process was released last week, but you discovered that it just wasn't for you. You prefer the stock feel of iOS over the seemingly never-ending sea of mods and tweaks. There's nothing to be ashamed of, and there's no reason to fret, even if you didn't backup before jailbreaking … like you should have. The unjailbreaking method is relatively quick and very easy. All you need is iTunes, your Lightning or 30-pin cable and your iDevice. A couple clicks and no more than a half-hour later, and you will be back ...

    We've all been there. You pull your phone out of your pocket and notice something is off. Slide past the lock screen and you notice that, for whatever reason, your phone is back to factory settings. (For the record, I have had this happen with every mobile OS I have used to date.) Or maybe you have lost a phone. Having to go through the motions to get your phone back to how it should be is never a fun process. It's time consuming, and sometimes important information is gone forever, irrecoverable. Fortunately, there is a solution – precautionary steps that prevent sensitive or important ...

There are a ton of great tweaks, but Cydia is still on its knees with demand, so we ...
