    Not too long ago we were talking about rumors of a 12.9-inch iPad, something that (whether rightfully or not) managed to pick up the name “iPad Pro” along the way. But then a few weeks back we heard some slightly different details, like how this could be a 12.2-incher, instead. Today the changes keep coming, as not only do we get to take a peek at a possible leaked schematic for the tablet, but hear a new name and check out some fresh release rumors. Instead of the iPad Pro, apparently we're now calling this guy the iPad Air Plus – while still, none of this remains confirmed. The new ...

    Some rumors recently suggested that Apple was planning 12.(something) inch iPad Pro. This would put this iPad directly in line to compete against the Surface, which is a role reversal of sorts and that makes me smile a little bit. Other rumors suggest that the iPad Pro would actually replace the iPad mini in Apple’s lineup as “the second iPad”. Now this rumor was interesting for a few different reasons. But it got me to thinking – is that such a good idea? It’s true the iPad mini has never sold as well as the iPad. The first generation iPad mini didn’t have a retina screen, so ...

    Leading up to last month's iPad launch event, there were three models we had been keeping in mind: the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, both of which we ultimately saw Apple introduce, as well as the rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro. At least, that last one lingered in our thoughts as a remote possibility, though sources which had mentioned Apple's plans for the jumbo-sized tablet seemed to suggest that it might not emerge until sometime in 2015. Sure enough, it failed to make an appearance, but now we're all the more curious to get to the bottom of its story. Over the weekend, a new report on the ...

    We're just a week a way from an Apple event that we all assume has to do with iPads and iOS 8.1. We've seen some interesting leaks that show iOS 8.1 launching new services like Apple Pay, but it also seems that there could be more under the hood. That same developer that uncovered the Apple Pay leaks has discovered more new stuff to come, and this time it has to do with iPads. At the moment, every single credible source claims that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will not be launched until 2015, and the main reasons point to the fact that Apple prefers to meet the iPhone 6 Plus demand before ...

    It's funny to admit that no matter where you go, anyone that notices that you're using an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus will most likely ask you if your phone has bent. This is to say that yes, "bendgate" was a huge driving force of bad publicity for the iPhone 6 Plus, though you'd think it would be bad enough to affect Apple's demand for the device. Actually, the reality is quite the opposite, and even though Apple hasn't provided any solid iPhone 6 Plus numbers, some credible sources have just detailed its status. According to the Wall Street Journal, the demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is ...

    After all the IFA launches last month, not to mention the headline-grabbing debut of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, you might have expected mobile device manufacturers to take a little break, gather their thoughts, and meditate on their strategies for dominating the holiday season. But no, oh no: we find ourselves smack-dab in the midst of another busy period of events. HTC's got its “double exposure” announcement later today, Sony has something to share with us tomorrow, and there's that Oppo N3 launch coming at the end of the month. But between this week's news and that N3 action, there's ...

    Apple is well known for testing all sorts of prototypes, well ahead of a possible launch of any. We've been seeing the design of the iPhone  6 leaked all over the place since the time of the iPhone 4s launch, even though it took the company 3 generations to make it possible. In the same fashion, we've been hearing about a possible 12.9-inch iPad in the works for a more professional crowd, and new rumors point to how Apple plans to pull it off. Supply chain sources claim that Apple is testing two 12.9-inch iPad models, both running different operating systems. On one, we have one iPad ...

    Around this time last year, Apple made its most anticipated iPad upgrades yet: the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. Both were the thinnest, lightest iPads yet, packing more horsepower and better displays than ever before. Rumor has it, this year’s iPad announcement is just weeks away and what we might be looking at is piquing the interests of iPad users all around. As a long time iPad user and having recently departed with my iPad mini with Retina display, I’m definitely looking forward to the announcement. What should you expect? What are we hoping for? Below, I’ve ...

    Last year, with the release of the iPhone 5S, we saw Apple move from offering its smartphone with a pair of color options to give customers a choice of three shades, adding a golden handset to the mix. We've seen that gold color return with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus this year (above), but so far this option has found itself constrained to Apple's smartphones. To hear a new rumor, however, that situation may soon be changing, with claims that Apple will be launching its next iPad with a gold option of its own. According to Bloomberg, the full-sized iPad (presumed to be the iPad Air 2) will ...

    September came and has (almost) gone without the release of new iPads, so we're looking squarely at October for the release of new entries to Apple's tablet lineup – which means it's about time that the rumor train start rolling. Today, a report from Taiwanese site Technews.tw looks to start detailing the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, allegedly one of the upcoming Apple slates. The source states that the Pro will have an upgraded version of the Apple A8 processor found on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the A8X. This naming convention is believable, as the fourth-gen iPad had an Apple A6X processor (and ...

    By most accounts, Apple is half-done with its 2014 mobile hardware launches. The other week brought us news of new iPhones and the company's first smartwatch designs, leaving us to wait for word of the next iPads at a separate event – one that some sources suggest could come as soon as next month. But just what would this iPad launch bring us? A few ideas for the new hardware have been mentioned, including a second-gen iPad Air, third-gen iPad mini, and maybe even a giant 12.9-inch model called the iPad Pro. The iPad Air 2's the easy money, but what about the other two? A new report ...

    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 ...

    Apple's WWDC 2014 event is just around the corner, and the company has already confirmed the specific date and time for the launch keynote. It's planned to happen from 10AM to 12PM on Monday, June 2nd at Moscone West, as it has for the last couple of years. Surely we've seen Apple launch blockbuster products like the iPhone 4 in the last couple of years, but lately WWDC has been a software-focused event. It's hard to predict if things will change this year, but rumors point to a possibility. The biggest things to expect at this event are definitely iOS 8, and a more iOS-looking OS X ...

    Apple has a handful of devices rumored to launch this year, such as the wrist-mounted iWatch and the notably larger version of its popular iPad brand, the so-called iPad Pro. Reportedly, the iPad Pro will be a scaled-up version of the existing iPad Air with a 12.9-inch display. It's rumored to come in two models: one 2K and the other 4K. There is also some speculation as to which of Apple's operating systems the Pro tablet would run – Mac OS, iOS, or some crazy hybrid of both. The tablet was expected to launch in the fall of 2014. But a more recent report from DigiTimes suggests the ...

    Apple's recent name change for its larger iPad to iPad Air has left a lot of speculation in the tech world. Given the fact that Apple's MacBook line-up is made of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, and also due to some rumors of Apple building a 12.9-inch iPad, many of us assumed that this larger iPad would make Apple's iPad Pro line-up in the future. Sadly new rumors don't paint a pretty picture for this possible iPad Pro as analysts at IHS have just told CNET that: “Some manufacturers over the last six months have received sample quantities of a larger panel. They’re playing around ...
