When discounting their older product, most companies simply dump it into the market and call it a day. But Apple isn’t just any company -- an updated model of the $399 iPad 2 is floating around at retail, and it might improve battery life by as much as 16 percent.
Following on the heels of CEO Tim Cook’s updates on Siri, the App Store and iCloud, Apple’s Eddy Cue moves on to discuss the new Apple TV, which brings 1080p video playback from iCloud and a “gorgeous” new interface.
The new iPad will be unleashed upon the public tomorrow! We hope, anyway. As we wait in the bleachers with anticipation for tomorrow morning's event, we're recapping the last bit of rumors to make our own score of what might be in store at Apple's iPad 3 event.
Here's a recap of what we think we know. After all, nothing you hear counts until it's confirmed during a keynote.
Word around the campfire has it that Apple's March 7 press event in San Francisco will mark the debut of a third-generation iPad. Given the nature of the event's marketing artwork, it's a sure bet that Tim Cook and his crew will definitely be talking tablets. That said, does anyone have a handle on what we'll see unveiled next week? Nope, but that's never kept anyone from speculating about what Cupertino has in store for the masses in the past, has it?
It’s that time of the week again when we kick back with (or without) a cold one and reflect on the days past. The internet managed to score a victory this week by smacking down the SOPA/PIPA bills and iPhone 4S/iPad 2 users also have reason to cheer as they use a new untethered jailbreak to free their devices from some of Apple’s draconian restrictions. So hey, pretty good week, right? Let’s read on and find out what else is happening for this fabulous Friday, January 20, 2012.
There’s been a lot of hand-wringing among jailbreakers as to when Apple’s latest iOS devices might be freed from their ball and chains -- those being the A5-powered iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, of course. As the “cat and mouse game” with Apple continues, it appears that at least the iPhone 4S may soon be free, judging from a video making its way around the internet.
The smartypants who design the brains inside each of Apple’s iOS devices--the iPhone, iPad, iPhone touch, and Apple TV--have announced a new processor scheme with far-reaching implications not only for Apple’s überpopular consumer lineup, but for MacBooks, as well. And those designers aren’t Cupertinians.
Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, Phil Schiller, followed up a couple of iPod updates by introducing the widely rumored iPhone 4S, the latest and greatest handset from the company.
In case you didn’t know, Apple is holding a media event on Tuesday, October 4 at 10am PST on their Cupertino campus. Based on the invitation send to the press and the teasing “Let’s talk iPhone” tagline, it’s pretty clear that this will be an iPhone event -- but exactly which iPhone(s) they’ll be talking about is still up for debate.
Closer and closer we get to the rumored release date of the next generation of iPhones. And, true to form, the rumor mill stories are all starting to get more and more overlapping and similar. October 4th is almost universally agreed as the Go-Date and things are starting to gear toward a two model release. Well, then, what else is going down?
