    What could we hope to see from Apple's next full-sized iPad: the iPad Air 2, iPad 6, or whatever you want to call it? Sure, rumors have flirted with the idea of a new, larger iPad, and there will almost certainly be another iPad mini this year, but what about the standard 9.7-inch slate? Some new photos have just leaked, and while they don't seem to show much at first, a closer examination suggest Apple is making some big changes to the tablet's internals. Layout-wise, the front panel you see here doesn't appear to differ much from the current iPad Air: same front-facer, thin side bezels, ...

    Apple's quest for thinner and lighter has been quite notorious with every iPhone and iPad model that's ever been launched. With the exception of the third-generation iPad, Apple's products continue slimming down in size, weight and heft with every major generation change, and the tendency continues for Apple's 2014 line-up. One of Apple's biggest hurdles in making devices thinner and lighter is the LED backlight used to power the display. Reports have Apple going from a 0.6 mm LED on its current-generation devices to a 0.4 mm component. Now what's even more interesting about this report is ...

    With the release of two new (or one new and one kinda new) iPhone models this year, it should already be clear that we can't just expect to see Apple keep on repeating old behavior any longer. That means that 2014 could be a year full of surprises from the company, and certainly based on the rumors we've been hearing, it sounds like Apple could take some bold steps to differentiate its product lineup. Today, we get to check out a report based on supply chain sources, looking at just when Apple might plan to introduce a couple of these new models. For instance, the jumbo-sized 12.9-inch ...

    Over the course of the past month, Apple rumors have grown increasingly vocal about the company's ambitions to release its largest iPad to date, with talk of a 12.9-inch model coming out early next year. Since then we've heard expectations shift from that of a March launch to something later in the year, but the idea of the 12.9-inch iPad itself remained. Today we check out the latest batch of rumors, returning to the topic of a launch window, and getting specific about the tablet's possible resolution. Supposedly, Apple's been looking at something like five different configurations for ...

    Rumors about next year's lineup of Apple hardware have so far been dominated by new form factors. We've been talking about a larger iPhone option arriving, the release of an Apple smartwatch, and the production of a jumbo-sized 12.9-inch iPad. While none of these are certainties, we've discussed each a number of times, and quite a few details have been sticking around. For a couple of them, though, a new rumor suggests we need to rethink what we've been told about Apple's release ambitions, with word that delays have befallen both the 12.9-inch iPad and the iWatch. Unlike the rumors we've ...

    If a rumor gets repeated enough, does it become true? Sometimes we'd sure like things to be that way, but instead we have to live with the uncertainty we do, never sure if rumors are barking up the right tree until some hard evidence actually arrives. That's the boat we find ourselves in today, with another source talking about the coming launch of a 12.9-inch iPad. Earlier this month, we heard about a larger iPad with just that screen size, with claims that Apple was evaluating the design in plans for a possible spring 2014 launch. Today, many of those same details are being repeated, ...

    After larger iPad rumors came larger iPhone rumors, and now we're going full circle with more hear-say and speculation regarding a future possible larger-than-9.7-inch iPad. While we previously heard of a possible 11.4-inch Apple slate, today's rumor is talking about an even larger form factor, at 12.9-inches. Even if such a prototype exists, Apple has been known to experiment with multiple form factors in-house, most of which remain in the prototype/project category/stage for good. This rumor claims that the 12.9-inch iPad is already in testing at the Foxconn factory, which, even if it ...

    If the most recent rumors about Apple's launch plans for its new tablets are accurate, we should be seeing invitations going out today or tomorrow, with the actual launch event taking place a week from Tuesday. Of course, there's always the chance that info's a little off, but one way or another, the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 be going official in the near future. Even with that pair yet to land, we're already starting to hear about what could be next for Apple, with some analyst assessments of what we might expect for its 2014 tablet lineup. This year's iPad 5 should keep the same display ...

    Apple's new iPhone are upon us – well, nearly enough, anyway, and in just a handful of days, eager Apple fans will have their first shot at picking up an iPhone 5S or 5C (above) for themselves. This year's offerings aren't really about specs, not as far as I'm concerned, anyway, and the most interesting context I see in which to view these releases is one of design. After all, Apple's taking some pretty major steps here with the look of its phones. It took the company a number of years to even add a white option to its base iPhone offerings, and now it's dropping the gold 5S like it's no ...
