Magician Performs Magic Trick Using An iPad

Tyler Lee November 15, 2017

Magic tricks involving cards and coins aren’t new and have been around for ages and are still performed and enjoyed by many today. However with technology such as smartphones and tablets coming into the picture, they do present themselves as an opportunity to be used as props or in the routine of a magician.

Magician Simon Pierro has been taking advantage of technology in his routines and in his latest video, which he dedicates to a legendary magician named Cardini, he takes and iPad and performs some pretty stunning sleight of hand tricks with them. It is a pretty fun performance and it is definitely not the first time we’re seeing magicians rely on their smartphones and tablets to pull off some amazing performances.

In fact there are actually some apps out there that help magicians perform their tricks, which if you’re interested you can check them out and then perform for your friends. That being said, Pierro’s YouTube channel does play host to quite a few tablet-related magic tricks so if you’re into magic they could be worth taking a look at as well. In the meantime you can watch Pierro’s iPad performance in the video above if you have a few minutes to spare.

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.

American Eagle’s New Store Has iPads In Every Dressing Room

While online shopping is no doubt more convenient, it can be a bit of a hit and miss when it comes to clothes, as sometimes what’s advertised on a website might be different in cutting or fit when it arrives, then customers will have to deal with getting it resized or sending it back. This is why sometimes trying on clothes before buying is always a good idea.

However it seems that fashion retailer American Eagle wants to make the process a bit more hi-tech. In a report from Business Insider, the retailer has recently launched a new store in Manhattan, New York, where iPads are installed throughout the store, where some iPads will show customers how certain jeans will look like, while the other iPads are placed inside of the dressing rooms.

These iPads in the dressing rooms will allow shoppers to call for attendants remotely, and also edit their choices on the fly, meaning that you could get someone to bring in an item that you want to try instead of having to go out and find it yourself. It also seems that salespeople will be equipped with mobile point-of-sale devices, which means that if you like what you’ve just tried on, you can pay for it right there and then in the dressing room and walk right out.

American Eagle is also allowing customers to order items in the store and having it shipped to them if their size is not available.

Apple’s Market Cap Crosses $900 Billion, On Track To Hit $1 Trillion

Tyler Lee November 8, 2017

For the past few quarters, Apple has been consistently reporting a decline in iPhone sales, which we suppose combine that with the market being as mature and saturated as it is today, and the fact that Apple hasn’t really made much innovations for the past 3 generations, shouldn’t really have come as a surprise.

However Apple’s latest quarter appears to be looking good with iPhone sales up, and now it looks like Apple is on track to hitting a $1 trillion market cap. According to MarketWatch, Apple has recently managed to cross the $900 billion market cap during intraday trading, and apparently this makes Apple the first publicly traded US company to have done so.

It seems that investors were particularly happy with Apple’s latest financials, and we should note that the latest financials do not include iPhone X sales, which we expect that come next quarter’s report should help Apple along their way to hitting that coveted $1 trillion market cap. So far carriers appear to be upbeat about the iPhone X’s demand, and reviews are also pretty positive.

While Apple has yet to share the numbers, we have heard that within the first 3 days, anywhere between 9 to 12 million iPhone X handsets were pre-ordered.

2018 iPad May Tout A New Design, Facial Recognition

Adnan Farooqui November 8, 2017


It’s about time that Apple launched a new high-end tablet and according to a new report today, the company is working on a redesigned flagship tablet for 2018. The 2018 iPad is reportedly going to come with significant design changes. It might also be the first iPad without a Home button as it’s reportedly going to feature Face ID facial recognition as well.

Bloomberg reports that the 2018 iPad’s design is going to incorporate key iPhone X design elements like slimmer bezels. It may also ditch the Home button in favor of facial recognition.

Even though the iPhone X is the first smartphone from Apple to feature an OLED display, the report mentions that the tablet is not likely to have an OLED display.

Apple is said to be working on at least one new iPad model with a display size similar to the 10.5 inch iPad Pro. It may include Face ID, the facial recognition technology that Apple introduced with the iPhone X.

The scribe mentions that Apple could launch this new high-end iPad early next year, though there’s nothing concrete to back this up right now. Apple hasn’t said anything about its tablet plans so far and the company normally doesn’t comment on such reports.

If Apple is indeed working on a new high-end iPad, we can expect to hear more rumors and reports about it in the coming weeks.

News: Apple acknowledges autocorrect bug in iOS 11.1

Dan Pye November 6, 2017

In a blog post, Apple has acknowledged a problem with the autocorrect feature in iOS 11.1 that is replacing the letter “i” with an “A” accompanied by a symbol. So far it’s the only autocorrect problem that Apple has specifically addressed, but we’ve seen other problems as well — like the word “it” being converted to “I.T.” or “I’d” being changed to “I.D.” — and…

iOS 11.1 Devices Hit With Weird Autocorrecting Keyboard Bug

Tyler Lee November 6, 2017

The virtual keyboard on our smartphones are one of the most basic features that one would expect from smartphones, but it seems that even sometimes the most basic things can go wrong. Such is the case with iPhone and iPad users who are encountering a weird autocorrect bug on their devices.

If you haven’t noticed it yourself, it seems that users when typing on the iOS keyboard and when they press the “i” key, it will autocorrect itself to an “A” followed by a question mark symbol. Note that this seems to be an issue with iOS 11.1 and the good news is that Apple has acknowledged the bug and is working on a fix.

In the meantime the company has provided users with a workaround in which they can set a text replacement for the letter “i” if they are discovering that this has become an unbearable issue for them. It doesn’t seem that this is an issue that has affected all iOS 11.1 users, but if you are affected then Apple’s support page will tell you how to fix it temporarily until an update has been released.

Unfortunately this is the second bug that has been recently discovered in iOS 11 that seems to have affected the basic functions of the phone. Earlier this was an issue with the iOS Calculator app that would not register inputs if they were typed too fast.
