If your wallet shuddered suddenly this week, it was probably busy tuning into Apple’s big fall announcements. If you missed it, or you’re on data overload, there are new iPhones, pricing for Apple TV+, a new iPad, a new Apple Watch, and Apple Arcade news!
At WWDC 2019, Apple announced the new iPad OS. Before I go too far, I want to caution you about loading this beta. If you use your iPad for anything mission critical, then it’s best to wait until the full release. With that said here are my thoughts on the biggest update to the iPad in years.
For years we’ve heard that iPads will never replace MacBooks. They would never be as powerful, or nearly as good as carrying around your trusty laptop. And then Apple announced iPadOS. So before everyone rushes to purchase themselves the wrong keyboard cases for their iPad, let me tell you about my personal favorite, and go-to case: Logitech’s Slim Folio Pro for iPad Pro 11-inch & 12.9 Inch.
Even with using a 15-inch MacBook Pro, screen retail space is limited. At least that was the case until I received the Luna Display by Astropad. Now, I can get everything done as if I had two monitors.
When Apple announced its new iPad Pros and the companion second edition magnetic Apple Pencils, one of the biggest concerns was housing the Pencil when not in use. Luckily with the Symmetry Series 360 case by Otterbox, you’ll never have to worry about protecting your tablet or accommodating your Apple Pencil.
If you recently got a new iPad Pro, chances are you are looking for some accessories to complete the look of your device. Luckily, Moshi has a few tricks up their sleeve with some awesome gear that you’ll enjoy.
Mujjo is a popular accessory maker for most of Apple’s more popular products including the iPhone, iPad, and Macbook. And right on time for the holidays, the company has a great deal everyone should check out.
I love the iPad – no really, I LOVE it! Since 2010 I have bought a new iPad with each release, and have often written about my experiences and called the iPad my ‘90% Computer’.
When Apple took away the basic necessities MacBook users use every day (including HDMI and USB outlets) opting to switch to USB Type C, many companies benefited from this. Consumers, however, have had to deal with dongle life ever since 2016. But not all dongles and hubs are created equally. Hyper is leading the pack in great USB Type C accessories that you should check out.
If you have an iPad and always wanted to get a sense of what it would be like to have a MacBook with iOS, get yourself the Brydge Keyboard. I’ve been using it for the past two months, and if it weren’t for occasional needs for an actual Laptop, this would be my go-to setup.
With the size of videos and photos nowadays, we may all have a time where the provided memory just is not enough. Naztech is addressing this issue with the Xtra Drive mini ($59.99). The device allows you to instantly save and transfer files using your iOS device’s Lightning Connector and up to 256GB Micro USB card.
It’s not too late to get some shopping done for the holiday gear courtesy of Logitech, so why not check out a few of my own personal favorite accessories from the company?
Several years ago, Apple rolled out “two-step verification” to protect your Apple ID. It involved a trusted device, a password, and a recovery key you had to print and save. If you’re like me, you probably filed that key away and forgot it existed.
Over the past month, I’ve been using the most unusual iPad Pro case on the market after literally going caseless for the first two weeks of purchasing the 12.7” tablet and luckily, Moshi sent me over their iGlaze and VersaCover for the extra-large iPad, and I love it.
We were all glued to the Apple event today; unfortunately, it wasn’t with the usual pulse-pounding excitement we’ve had in the past. Some of us walked away a little disappointed … here are our thoughts!
There are lots of ways to get better sound from your laptop or tablet but perhaps the best, and simplest, is to plug a decent desktop audio system with two speakers and a subwoofer into it. The Logitech Z533 Multimedia Speaker System is just such a system. It offers 120 watts of impressive sound and is under $100!
Do you love the function of your iPad, but long for a something that looks a bit more exclusive? If you’ve got the money to set yourself apart from the herd, then Brinell has the iPad you’ve been hoping for; it’s aptly called the brinell iPad Air2.
Boogie Board, manufacturers of LCD eWriters that write similar to pen and paper, have announced their latest eWriter innovation, the Play n’ Trace. It’s a see-through eWriter for kids that is meant to promote creativity while developing motor, communication, and writing skills through a companion iPad app. Featuring a dual-tipped stylus, Play n’ Trace is available today for $29.99!
When I started playing the guitar in the early 80’s, I dreamed of having a cool electric guitar with some cool technology. It is now 2015 and I have now played a small, portable guitar that connects to my smartphone and tablet. The Jamstik+ is a wireless, compact MIDI guitar that needs no tuning and costs $299. Let’s take a look! The Jamstik+ is quite unique looking. Kind of like…
Apple just released public betas of both iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. There’s no requirement to be a developer or do anything except visit this link to sign up with your Apple ID. Before loading this (or any) beta software be certain you have a complete backup of your data. This is the fourth beta release of Apple’s iOS 9 which is expected to release in Fall 2015.
It looks as if Apple is going to have a beta going at all times. With less than a week since 8.3 was released, Apple has already released the beta for iOS 8.4.
