    Taking photos is an activity practically everyone partakes in, whether it be for a profession, capturing an important moment, keeping track of vital information, or just for fun. Out of sheer convenience, smartphones have quickly become the go-to device for snapping photos for the vast majority of the population, and also because mobile camera technology has improved exponentially since the turn of the century. Smartphones often make rather amazing cameras, and they slip into your pocket much easier than their dedicated point-and-shoot counterparts. It may not be a direct comparison ...

    Apple may have not invented the tablet computer, nor may have it been the first company to launch a fully functional product to the world. Still, that doesn't change the fact that the launch of the original iPad left a dent big enough that almost every competitor has followed in Apple's footsteps. Love it or hate it, Apple's iPad lineup remains king in the tablet world, and today we get a glimpse of its future. Today's event was full of iPads, though we wish we could say that all of them were new. Sadly not everything announced today was hot, and that's the main reason we keep our "Love ...

    Microsoft is intent on replacing your laptop with its Surface Pro 3 offering. This concept is not without merit. Often I have said if I can carry around just one device instead of a laptop and a tablet, I will have officially moved into Happytown. But what if that one device is just a tablet? Allow me to explain. During the iPad 2 announcement today, Apple called upon a couple of app developers to come on stage and demo their products. Normally this would be an odd thing to do during a device announcement. Except that these two app developers happened to be working on photo and video ...

    Yesterday Google introduced us to the HTC made Nexus 9, a 9-inch Android-powered tablet with an aspect ratio that's no longer for watching movies, and is more in line with productivity and getting work done. Today, Apple officially announced the iPad Air 2, and it became clear why Google went with a non-letterbox resolution screen. Screen Apple's new iPad Air 2 has a 9.7-inch display with a resolution of 2048×1536 and 264 pixels per inch. The Nexus 9's display is a little smaller at 8.9-inches but with the same resolution, Google's tablet bumps the clarity up to 276 ppi. While some may ...

    Today was Apple’s day to breathe new life into a slowly stagnating lineup of iPads that … do exactly what the original iPad did, only faster. Going into today’s announcements, we were told we might see something new, something potentially game-changing. Rumors suggested there could be an iPad Pro (or Plus) with a 12.9-inch display. Theories about what the larger iPad would entail have varied from “not much else” to a full-on Mac OS tablet or a device that could switch between iOS and Mac OS on the fly. Either way, that didn’t happen today. Instead, today’s iPad announcement ...

    Of Apple's two new tablets debuting at today's launch event, the iPad Air 2 is easily the more capable of the pair. With a new SoC at its core, the Air 2 represents the next generation of Apple's iOS hardware.

Let's take a look at the full picture of components that make up Apple's latest tablet flagship: iPad Air 2 specs [table] Component,Description Screen size,9.7 inches Screen type,LCD with fully laminated construction and ...

    Finally, the moment we've been waiting for is here! After plenty of news about services, software, and OS X, Apple's event has moved into tablet territory. First up, the company is introducing the successor to last year's already-quite-thin iPad Air, the 6.1-mm-thick iPad Air 2. Sure enough, that rumored gold color has arrived, finally giving the iPad line the same color selections as Apple's smartphone lineup. The new tablet's screen is now fully laminated, bonding the touch sensor, glass, and LCD panel itself. Paired with an anti-reflection coating, the iPad Air 2's display should be ...

    With the new Nexus hardware announced, it's time for the shortest of breathers before we move right into this week's next big launch, as Apple gears up for tomorrow's press event. A new iPad is practically assured, with the big questions concerning just which model (or models) would take the stage. We'll have our official answer in just about a day, but Apple may have let the cat out of the bag a little early, as the company itself seems to have leaked confirmation that an iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are just about to drop. The company just published its iOS 8.1 user guide for the iPad, and ...

    Apple has already teased that its event on October 16 will be about something that's taken a long time. Many speculate that even though Apple's music event is already history with the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, we might see a revamp to legacy products like the Apple TV and iPods as well. We do see it as highly unlikely, but we're almost certain that this will be Apple's iPad event, and today we learn more about when to expect it. Trusted sources claim that Apple is already shipping mass quantities of a specific product for a launch on October 24. Sadly we don't know what product this is at ...

    Hankering for a new iPad? You're in luck, as with Apple's next press event just days away, we're almost certain to get news of at least one new iPad model. Most likely to make an appearance is the second-gen iPad Air, a tablet we've heard plenty about in leaks and rumors, as well as managed to recently check out on camera – well, at least a dummy unit. Today we step that up to what seems to be some real hardware, before looking some very well done concept renders. First up are the components, and the most notable one here is the tablet's main logic board. It's a bit difficult to make out ...

    Apple made a big deal about its new Apple Pay service when it announced the iPhone 6. The service shouldn't be out until the next couple of weeks, though we're sure that Apple's iPad event will shed some light on October 16. We still question if this service will take off or follow on Google's footsteps, but today's rumors show that Apple is still full-steam ahead. A developer has just discovered some hidden options for Apple Pay buried within iOS 8.1 beta. We did hear that iOS 8.1 would be the official launch of Apple Pay, though the first beta didn't show any information to validate ...

    Apple has just announced its press invitations for an event to happen on October 16, and historically this has everything to do with Macs and iPads. If you're wondering what changes are coming to the new iPads, we've heard that they're getting significantly thin, but there's nothing better than a visual demo of what to expect. A very credible Vietnamese source has just leaked some photos of a dummy of Apple's new iPad Air, which we're currently dubbing the iPad Air 2. You'll notice that this tablet is significantly thinner, as the source claims that it's just 7mm thick when compared to ...
