The big news of the week certainly had to be Apple's surprise availability of the iPad mini with Retina Display, a pixel-powered refresh of last year's small tablet that most pundits didn't expect to see until later in the month. But Thursday wound up being a fairly busy day where software was concerned, so we've rounded up a handful of the coolest news items and now present them to you in easily digestible form to close out this mid-November week!
It was a big week for WWDC news and we've got a few stories from that, but we figured there might have been a story here and there that slipped under the radar during the iOS 7 unveiling. So here's a few bites at the Apple news that slipped through your fingers. But worry not, we've recapped a few stories from one of Apple's biggest annual events.
Seriously, where has the month of June gone? It's already the middle of the month, WWDC 2013 is over and that Superman movie you've been waiting to see for more than a year is now in theaters, complete with a companion mobile game for your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. But you won't need Kryptonite to get through our last overnight recap of the week, so up, up and away…!
We're guessing the folks at iFixit would love to get their spudgers into that swanky new Mac Pro Apple unveiled at WWDC 2013 on Monday, but until that time, we'll have to make do with the latest MacBook Air instead.
We didn't even realize it when we were picking this week's stories, but we really are in a post-PC world. Every last article is about the mobile world. For better or worse, Steve Jobs has charted our future's course (or at least he was really adept at predicting it and getting Apple on that crest). So check it out, newshounds, it's an iOS-errific world.
With each new tablet released -- and there's a lot of them these days! -- the folks at iFixit break out the spudgers and get to work for all of us to enjoy. Now the company has published a chart comparing just how repairable they are to each other.
If you survived Valentine's Day yesterday, the good news is many of us will be enjoying a three-day weekend to take advantage of the President's Day sales on Monday. So before we all part company for 72 hours, let's take a quick walk through the five best stories that went down on Thursday, including one truly bizarre tale involving HP and a rock and roll legend...
The new 21.5-inch iMacs hit stores last Friday, so you can just imagine how the folks at iFixit spent their weekend -- but in addition to a disappointing repairability score, the latest iMac also comes with a curious secret.
Halloween is over, but that doesn't mean we're any less excited about guts. Well, iPad mini guts, anyway. The fine folks at iFixit have once again broken down Apple's latest device to its base components, and its the first real look at some of the internals lurking inside the littlest iPad.
