2018’s iPad Pro Rumored To Feature Octa-Core A11X Bionic Processor

Tyler Lee November 15, 2017

For the most part, Apple’s iPads have largely kept the same form factor for several generations now, save for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro which was launched earlier this year with slight design changes where its bezels were slightly thinner, but otherwise it still looks and feels very much like an iPad.

Now we have heard the rumors that next year’s iPads could feature a new design and also the introduction of Face ID, and now more details about next year’s iPad might have been potentially revealed, thanks to a post by Chinese website MyDrivers (via 9to5Mac). According to the report, it claims that Apple will be introducing an upgraded A11 Bionic chipset that will see the bump from a hexa-core setup to an octa-core one.

Given Apple’s history with their iPads, it is safe to assume that next year’s iPads will use an upgraded version of the A11, and presumably it will be known as the A11X. However whether or not it will be bumped from hexa-core to octa-core remains to be seen. The report goes on to claim that the A11X will be manufactured using the 7nm process by TSMC (the A11 uses a 10nm process), and that the tablet will be launched in Q2 2018.

Given that the iPad Pros were last refreshed at WWDC 2017 earlier this year in June, we suppose a Q2 2018 launch doesn’t seem quite out of the question, but since nothing is official yet it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt for now.

iPad Pro May Get Face ID Next Year

Adnan Farooqui October 9, 2017


Face ID is what Apple is calling the facial recognition feature on the iPhone X. It’s powered by depth-sensing cameras and powerful sensors that help control access to the device. While the iPhone X is yet to hit the market, there are already reports about the next device from Apple that might feature this technology. According to the report, the iPad Pro is going to get Face ID next year.

The report comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been right on several accounts in the past about his predictions related to Apple products. Kuo believes that the iPad Pro models that are due next year are going to come with depth-sensing cameras. They will feature Face ID facial recognition technology.

No further information has been offered about the next-generation tablets from Apple so this is all that we have to go on right now. Apple might eventually bring Face ID to the iPad lineup but whether or not it does that next year remains to be seen.

It also begs the question of a major redesign. Is Apple is going to push the boundaries of iPad design by incorporating an iPhone X-like design? This is just pure speculation right now and there haven’t even been any rumors about this so far.

Whatever the company is planning, we can expect to hear more whispers about it in the months to come.

iPad Pro Prices Quietly Raised By Apple

Adnan Farooqui September 13, 2017


Apple didn’t announce any new tablets at its event yesterday. It actually made no iPad-related announcements at the event. However, the company did raise prices for the iPad Pro quietly. This was discovered earlier today. The iPad Pro prices for some models have been raised by around $50.

Apple has quietly made the iPad Pro more expensive. The 256GB and 512GB models of the tablet have seen a price increase of $50 each. Apple launched the 10.5 inch Wi-Fi models of these tablets for $749 and $949 respectively earlier this year in June. You’ll now have to pay $799 and $999 for the same iPads.

The price increase isn’t just limited to the Wi-Fi only models. Apple has also made the cellular models more expensive as well. They previously cost $879 and $1,079 and will now be sold for $929 and $1,129 respectively.

Apple has not provided any reasoning for this quiet price increase but as it stands now if you want to buy an iPad Pro, this is what you’ll have to pay for it. The price increase has also been applied in other markets like Australia and Europe.

iPad customers who could buy the same tablets for less yesterday will now have to pay $50 more for the very same models starting today. They’re immediately available for purchase at the new price from Apple online and its retail stores.

Apple Promises More Smart Connector Products Are Coming

Tyler Lee August 15, 2017

Apple has typically relied on its Lightning port and connector for its accessories, but with the iPad Pro, Apple actually introduced a new method of connectivity in the form of the Smart Connector. However despite the introduction of the new connector, there aren’t many accessories available for it.

Sure there are Apple’s own lineup of accessories, and there are also some from third-party vendors, but it’s nowhere near as many as Lightning, but that is expected to change soon. In a report from Fast Company, it seems that the Cupertino company has confirmed that there are more Smart Connector accessories in the works from other companies, but exactly what they are remains to be seen.

One of the benefits of the Smart Connector over Lightning is that it doesn’t actually plug into the port itself, but rather it relies on contact between the connectors, which means that connecting devices and removing them will be relatively simple and straightforward, versus Lightning where you’d have to plug it in and out, which isn’t quite as efficient.

So far some accessories that uses it include the Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro, as well as some options by Logitech, but in any case hopefully we’ll be able to see more such accessories being launched in the future.

Students Get Free Beats Headphones On MacBook And iPad Purchase

Adnan Farooqui July 12, 2017


There are still a couple of months before school starts again. Many students will be looking to upgrade their tech before they head off to school again. No wonder we’re seeing computer companies come out with their own promotions to capture new customers. While Apple isn’t offering significant discounts on its products which tend to be quite sought after, the company is offering a pair of free Beats headphones.

Apple has confirmed that students who purchase a new MacBook or iPad Pro from the company directly will be able to choose a free Beats headphone. Students can take advantage of Apple education pricing to save some money on the products they purchase.

The company is going to offer a choice of Beats Solo3 Wireless, BeatsX, or Powerbeats 3 headphones to customers who are eligible for this promotion. All they have to do is purchase a new MacBook or iPad Pro from the company.

As previously mentioned, the company isn’t offering a lot of discount on the products themselves. Customers can expect to save around $50 on the MacBook and $20 on the iPad Pro.

Nevertheless, since Beats headphones tend to cost a couple of hundred dollars, they’ll be getting a pretty good deal all things considered.

Review: Logitech Slim Combo Keyboard Case for 10.5” iPad Pro

Jesse Hollington July 6, 2017

Logitech’s Create iPad Pro Keyboard Case was basically the first Smart Keyboard available for the iPad Pro back in 2015 — ironically beating Apple’s own Smart Keyboard, at least in terms of general availability. When Apple released the 9.7″ iPad Pro six months later, Logitech naturally followed up its original Create with a refined version providing the same Smart Connector keyboard capabilities for the smaller tablet. Now, with the launch of Apple’s two new iPad Pro models, Logitech has released a new variation on its classic Smart Keyboard cases in the form of Slim Combo, a version that features a detachable keyboard for more versatility.{/exp:char_limit}

New iPad Pros Appear To Outperform The MacBook Pro In Some Areas

Tyler Lee June 15, 2017

Could there be a future in which tablets will eventually replace laptops as portable computers? We suppose it is possible, although there probably needs to be some changes made to how tablets function, not to mention the power behind tablets as some users might be more demanding than the rest.

However it looks like Apple could be inching towards that future. In a post on Barefeats (via 9to5Mac), they tested out Apple’s new 2017 iPad Pro lineup and put them up against Apple’s Touch Bar MacBook Pros and based on the benchmarks we are looking it, it looks like Apple’s new iPad Pros are actually beating out the MacBook Pro in terms of performance in certain areas.

Using GeekBench 4 to test the devices, Barefeats found that Apple’s 2017 12.9-inch and 10.5-inch iPad Pro models actually beat out the 13-inch 2016 Retina MacBook Pro in terms of multi-core performance. The tablets were also found to have outperformed the 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pros in terms of the Metal GPU score, and also in terms of framerates where the tablets boasted considerably higher framerates than the laptops.

That being said, it is unlikely that users will be swapping their MacBook Pros for iPad Pros anytime soon. These are different devices and are used in different ways, but it does go to show just how powerful our tablets are becoming these days.

Apple Unveils New iPad Pro Leather Sleeve Accessories

Tyler Lee June 6, 2017

As you might have heard by now, Apple has launched new iPad Pro models which includes a new 10.5-inch option which is pretty much in line with what the rumors have been saying. Now if you were looking for some official iPad Pro accessories, Apple appears to be more than pleased to oblige.

The company has since officially announced new leather sleeve accessories for the iPad Pros. Unlike the previous iPad Pro offerings, these are sleeves for your tablet, so if you’re more of a sleeve kind of user and prefer this style of protection, then this could be for you. They will be available in Saddle Brown, Taupe, Midnight Blue, and Black color options.

It also comes with a slot in which users can keep their Apple Pencil to prevent it from getting lost. However if you prefer a standalone accessory, in addition to the leather sleeves for the tablet, it also appears that Apple finally has an answer to how users can keep their Apple Pencil and this comes in the form of the Apple Pencil Case.

The leather sleeve for the iPad Pro is priced at $129 while the Apple Pencil Case will retail for $29 and is expected to begin shipping out in the next 1-2 weeks.

New 10.5 Inch iPad Pro Specs And Price Confirmed

Adnan Farooqui June 5, 2017


At WWDC 2017 today, Apple has unveiled an all-new 10.5 inch iPad Pro. It has also updated the 12.5 inch iPad Pro. The all-new 10.5 inch model slims down bezels by nearly 40 percent in a package that still weighs less than one pound.

Apple claims that both new tablets are “by far the most powerful iPads” that it has ever created. They feature ProMotion displays and Apple’s new A10X Fusion processor as well as the advanced camera system from the iPhone 7.

The company says that the redesigned Retina display in the new iPad Pro features ProMotion which is a new technology that delivers refresh rates of up to 120Hz for fluid scrolling and more responsiveness.

The new 64-bit A10X Fusion processor promises enhanced performance for complex tasks such as photo editing, 4K video, 3D image rendering, and gaming. The six-core CPU and 12-core GPU provide up to 30 and 40 percent CPU and GPU performance than the A9X chip.

Both iPad Pro models feature the same 12 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and 7 megapixel FaceTime HD camera as the iPhone 7. The iPad Pro also has a four-speaker audio system, an embedded Apple SIM as well as support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi and LTE-Advanced.

The new iPad Pro models can be ordered starting today from Apple.com and will be released to customers next week. They will also be available starting next week from Apple retail stores. Both will be updated to iOS 11 in the fall.

The new 10.5 inch iPad Pro is available in silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold colors with prices starting at $649 for the 64GB Wi-Fi only model and $779 for the Cellular model. The new 12.9 inch iPad Pro is available in space gray, silver, and gold colors with prices starting at $799 for the 64GB Wi-Fi only and $929 for the 64GB Cellular model.
