Report Claims 10.5-inch iPad Pro Production Is Ramping Up For June

Tyler Lee May 19, 2017

Apple’s iPad Pros were rumored to undergo a refresh earlier this year, but clearly that did not happen. However recent rumors have suggested that the refresh could take place in June where it could debut alongside the rumored Siri speaker (Apple’s answer to Amazon’s Echo and the Google Home).

Whether or not that will happen remains to be seen, but a report from DigiTimes (via 9to5Mac) has suggested that production of the tablet is currently ramping up where it is expected to be launched and made available in June. Assuming it’s true, the 10.5-inch model will not only represent a new size option, but also another addition to the iPad Pro lineup which features  12.9-inch and 9.7-inch models.

According to DigiTimes, “The upstream supply chain’s shipments for Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro have been increasing recently and the device’s monthly shipment volume is expected to grow to 600,000 units in July, up from around 500,000 units currently, helping its annual shipments to reach five million units in 2017, according to some market watchers. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro began mass production in March-April.”

Over the years DigiTimes has had a pretty spotty record when it comes to Apple-related rumors, so maybe you should take this with a grain of salt, but it definitely seems to in line with what we’ve heard so far.

New MacBook, MacBook Pro Upgrades Planned For WWDC

Tyler Lee May 16, 2017

If you’re looking forward to new MacBook upgrades, it seems that you might not have to wait much longer. According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is rumored to introduce new MacBook and MacBook Pro upgrades at WWDC 2017 which kicks off next month. This is interesting as for a while now, WWDC has stopped focusing on hardware launches.

However the report claims that the MacBook Pro will be upgraded with a faster Kaby Lake processor from Intel, while the MacBook is also said to get a faster Intel chip but it was not mentioned as to what it might be.

The 13-inch MacBook Air is also said to be under consideration for an upgrade but it was not confirmed. Unsurprisingly Apple declined to comment on the report. That being said we should note that this report is in line with an earlier report that suggested that we could expect an upgrade to the MacBook Pro in 2017 that could potentially be cheaper.

However the report claimed that the new laptops would use Intel’s Canonlake CPU and offer up to 32GB of RAM. It is possible that the upgrades introduced at WWDC would merely be a slight refresh, and that maybe a bigger upgrade could come in the later part of the year. Either way take it with a grain of salt and check back with us in the coming weeks for the details.

Siri Speaker And 10.5 iPad Pro Launch Likely Next Month

Adnan Farooqui May 14, 2017


There have been countless rumors so far about two new hardware products that Apple is expected to unveil in the near future. We’ve heard about the 10.5 inch iPad Pro time and again. Recently there have been rumors about a Siri-powered speaker that would be similar to the Amazon Echo. A well regarded Apple analyst is of the view that both products are going to be launched next month.

In his latest note to investors, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that Apple is going to launch the 10.5 inch iPad Pro and the Siri speaker at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2017 next month.

Kuo predicts that due to a production ramp-up at the end of this quarter, it’s highly likely that Apple is going to announce a new iPad at its developers conference this year.

He also reiterates his belief that there’s a good chance that Apple is going to launch its much rumored Siri speaker next month. The device is said to feature a touch panel display and it’s believed that select Apple employees have been testing this device at home for several months now.

Since it’s meant as an Amazon Echo rival, the speaker will have Siri baked in which will provide users with a host of features, including but not limited to music streaming, smart home control, and more.

Apple Sends Out Invites To WWDC 2017

Tyler Lee May 9, 2017

WWDC 2017 will be taking place next month and we’re sure many are curious and excited as to what Apple could be getting ready to announce. For those wondering, we are getting close as Apple has since started to send out media invites to the event which will be taking place on the 5th of June and will run until the 9th of June.

As to what will be announced, it is safe to assume that we will probably be hearing more about what Apple has planned for the future of iOS and macOS. We had previously heard that Apple could introduce its own version of Workflow for both iOS and macOS and that’s something to look forward to. Presumably there could also be updates on watchOS and tvOS, but we haven’t really heard much on that front yet.

As for potential hardware launches, there was a wild rumor earlier this month that suggested that Apple could unveil its next iPhone at the event. While we’re not privy to Apple’s decisions, based on previous releases and reports from reputable sources, that does seem to be a bit unlikely, so don’t get your hopes up just yet.

However we have heard that Apple could be launching its own Amazon Echo/Google Home competitor so that could be interesting, but either way do check back with us next month if you’d like the official details.

Apple Confirms WWDC 2017 Dates

Adnan Farooqui February 16, 2017


Apple today confirmed the WWDC 2017 dates. The Worldwide Developers Conference is an annual event that the company hosts in California to show off the next major software updates that it’s going to release later on in the year. The company has confirmed the WWDC 2017 dates today. The conference kicks off on June 5th and this time around, it’s going to be hosted at a different venue.

Apple normally hosts the Worldwide Developers Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco every year but it’s not going to do that this time around. WWDC 2017 is going to be hosted at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. This is actually the original home of WWDC where the event was hosted until 2002. The reason why Apple is not hosting WWDC 2017 at Moscone Center is because the venue is being renovated for expansion. We can expect Apple to showcase the next major updates for iOS, macOS and possibly for tvOS and watchOS.

Since this is an event for developers, tickets are really hard to come by, even though they cost $1,599 a pop. Tickets will be offered through a lottery and those who are interested can register starting March 27th. Since tickets were sold out in under two minutes last year, it’s likely going to be the same story in 2017.

Apple is going to live stream the WWDC 2017 keynote so you’ll be able to watch that from the comfort of your home.
