For the last couple of months, we just can’t shake the rumours of an alleged iPad Pro. This larger iPad will reportedly be a 12.9-inch device, much larger than the full-sized iPad Air. We were hoping to see this device at last month’s launch of the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, but we are still waiting. (more…)

My first reaction when reading about the Finnish Prime Minister saying that Apple has killed off the Scandinavian county’s two biggest industries was “What is the second?” Of course, Apple had a big role to play in the downfall of Nokia (although it wasn’t the only contributing factor), but in my ignorance I couldn’t think of another industry Apple could affect so adversely.

Until now we have only received vague dates for the new iPad launches, with many pointing to mid-October. Now, finally, we have some concrete evidence that we the new iPads will be launching on October 16th.

Both the new iPad Air and iPad Mini is expected on this date, but we may also be seeing something new from Apple.

Apple is rumoured to be adding a gold colour option for its revamped full size iPad Air, which is expected to be unveiled later this month.

It’s hard to think that the iPad has only been around for 4 years. Apple’s landmark device set the tone for all other companies to also start making tablets.

And surprisingly, he was almost spot on. The fan created his own interpretation of (what he called) the iPad.  (more…)
