    It's only natural that companies look for ways to get rid of some extra products in stock before the launch of whatever products come next. If you were wondering if Apple is really launching new iPads and iPhones in the next couple of weeks, AT&T has just proven that it is, as the company is now offering some enticing deals for existing Apple products. If you need a new iPad right now, and can't wait for the newer models to launch, AT&T could be the place to go, though there's a catch. AT&T is offering $200 off the purchase of a cellular iPad, but if you purchase an iPhone 5s ...

    Apple hasn't found the success it's been looking for with its iPad lineup. These are still the best selling tablets in the world, but they've failed to meet Apple's sales expectations over the last couple of quarters. The company is faced with a tough challenge this year in finding ways to differentiate its beloved tablet, and rumors point to how the company plans to do so. Reports claim that Apple will include a new "anti-reflection coating" in order to give users a better reading experience. Amazon has been mocking the iPad through its ads for years because of how cumbersome it is to ...

    I've been using tablets off and on since 2009, almost a year before Apple's iPad allegedly changed everything. I remember one of the first tablets I ever bought – the Archos 5 Internet Tablet. By today's standards, with a 4.8-inch display, it hardly qualifies as a tablet. In fact, its display was smaller than most high-end Android smartphone displays today. But in 2009, that's exactly what it was. It was powered by none other than Android, featured a kickstand on the back for media viewing, and came with a single-core 800MHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU, 256MB RAM, 160MB storage, and a microSD ...

    Most of the Apple talk lately is focused on the iPhone 6, its two variants, and a possible launch date for each of these this year, but we shouldn't forget that there is also an imminent iPad launch as well. Surely the iPad isn't the best selling Apple product lately as the company has found stagnant sales in the last few quarters, but this could actually be a good thing, as Apple is now forced to find new ways to keep its tablet relevant. New leaks show us that Apple is bringing some new design changes to the iPad Air, and most likely the iPad mini design as well. We already knew about ...

    Some view iPads and Android tablets as little more than devices made for multimedia consumption – watching YouTube videos, playing games, reading books, and Web browsing. But some people seek a little more out of their tablets and opt to pair them with a Bluetooth keyboard. The problem is, a lot of mobile keyboards are poorly executed. They're either completely separate or they don't add a lot of protection. ZAGG has the answer to this problem: the Rugged Folio. Available for both iPad mini models and coming soon for the iPad Air, the ZAGG Rugged Folio is both a truly rugged case for ...

    Apple's quarter results are in, and for those of you non-Apple fans that are hoping for the Cupertino kids to file for bankruptcy any time soon, that's just not going to happen. The company has reported revenue of $37.4 billion, and earnings of $1.28 per share (after last month's seven-for-one stock split). These numbers are above Apple's own $36 billion projections, though a little shy of Wall Street's $37.99 billion forecast, where the earnings per share did exceed the $1.23 projected. Still, if you think all these numbers are positive, that's actually not the case; so prepare to not be ...

    Even though 7-inch tablets have gained a significant level of popularity these days, Apple sadly can't say the same about its iPad mini lineup. The original iPad mini disappointed many with its low-resolution display, and the iPad mini with Retina Display was sadly overshadowed by its bigger brother, the iPad Air. This year we're expecting some minor changes to the bigger iPad Air, but given the fact that this is the third cycle for the iPad mini, it's rumored to be due for a change. New rumors point to the iPad mini dropping a few millimeters in its thickness and being dubbed the iPad ...

    The usefulness and practicality of iPads and other mobile tablets as true productivity tools has provided fuel for many debates. Can an iPad be more than a media consumption device? Can you get real work done with an iPad or Android tablet? Or will iPads and Android-powered tablets forever be relegated to entertainment devices best suited for the couch? Back in March and April, I tried to tackle these seemingly simple questions. Office for iPad had just landed after years of rumors. Frankly, Microsoft knocked it out of the park with its mobile, touch-friendly rendition of its globally used ...

    One benefit that many people have found in owning Apple iOS products is the combination of its AppleCare+ extended warranty, and Apple's Genius Bar service. For $99 you receive two years of warranty protection for any iPad or iPhone, and in case of any accidental damage to the device on your part, you could replace your iPad for $49, or iPhone for $79, with a total of two incidents being covered. Sadly if you didn't purchase the warranty when you bought the product, the most you were allowed to wait was 30 days, though Apple has just decided to change that. As of yesterday Apple is now ...

    We've heard for the last couple of weeks that aside from the significant re-design of the iPhone this year, Apple is also working on retaining the same design of its two iPad models, but including new benefits like what we saw with Touch ID on the iPhone 5s last year. Analysts have flooded the internet with predictions about it, but today we finally see something that actually confirms it. Taiwan reseller Apple Club has just leaked a couple of photos showing us the iPhone 6, and also the next-generation iPad Air and iPad mini (hopefully with Retina Display) all sporting the Touch ID ...

    Last week, we loaded all our iOS devices up with iOS 8 beta 1 and gave you a preview of the software you can expect on your iDevices this fall. We made it very clear the software was riddled with bugs and not everything was activated yet. A lot of what Apple announced at WWDC is missing from the first beta of iOS 8. It's understandable and expected. But how have we fared with the software? What do we love and what do we hate? Have we been able to stand an entire week with iOS 8? With a week of using beta 1 behind us, watch our iOS 8 impressions video below to see how we like (or dislike) ...

    Last week, Apple announced iOS 8 at its opening keynote for WWDC 2014. That comes as no real surprise as WWDC is where we typically meet the early incarnations of Apple's newest software versions. For the last several years, though, we've closed out of our WWDC keynote livesream and liveblog tabs with a subtle bitter taste in our mouths. Let's be honest, iOS 4, iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7 were all pretty boring. Sure, iOS 7 was a whole lot better to look at than previous versions, but useful features in the update were few and far between. We got Control Center, a better Notification Center, ...

    Following the WWDC keynote on Monday, some of us weren't exactly sure how to feel about the new iOS 8 update. Unlike last year, which was a huge visual overhaul, iOS 8 is more background and feature upgrades which make the update seem more incremental than it actually is. Behind the scenes, there's a lot of new stuff going on – a lot of stuff we never thought we'd see Apple ever announce. For one, it introduced third-party keyboards in iOS 8, placing a larger part of the user experience in the hands of third-party developers. Third-party sharing, something I've been harping on for years ...

    On Monday, Apple started its annual WWDC conference with a bang. It unveiled the newest Mac OS update, Yosemite, and an update to its mobile OS, iOS 8. Like many had predicted, Apple has once again brought the two platforms closer together through what the company calls Continuity. In the future, those with more than one Apple device will be able to start messages on one device and finish on another, start browsing a Safari Web page on the iPad and pick up later on the iPhone. However, this is only beta 1 and not everything is working as intended. What all is new? What works and what ...

    Each year around the same time, we look to Apple to bring some new features to its mobile platform. Each year, our anticipation for more useful, innovative features on iOS grows immensely. Maybe we're just demanding and ungrateful. Or maybe it's because, even for some strong Apple proponents, the software is beginning to feel a little stale. Last year's face-lift brought very few helpful changes to the platform; among the most notable were Control Center, folders with no app limitation on the Home screen, and AirDrop. But the brunt of the changes were dramatic visual changes – mostly in ...
