Is the iPod a dying product?

If you tuned into the iMore show last night, we covered the Apple Holiday gift guide but when it came to the topic of iPods we found some of them still had a place in the world. Some, like the iPod Touch were easy recommendations while others, like the iPod Classic we had a tough time suggesting.

Looking back on it, it reminds me of a thread I came across the iMore Forums asking a similar question but placing the whole iPod category itself at the center with the question being, is the iPod a dying product?

What don't you like about iOS 7?

Now that iOS 7 has been around for a while and folks have had a chance to go all in with it, the moonlight phase with some of what it brought might be over.  Sure, there's plenty to love in iOS 7 and we've looked at all of that extensively but what about some of the not so great stuff it brought? 

When upgrading to a new OS there is always 'good' stuff to be had but some folks don't adapt to change all that well and often times, that leads to some frustrations with things that are new. A nice thread popped up in the iMore Forums recently that asks the simple question - What don't you like about iOS 7? - a lot of the answers are really interesting to read through.

Is the iPhone 4S still a good phone?

With the release of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and finally, the iPhone 5c there's always that 'I must upgrade to the latest' feeling out there but there's still plenty of folks wondering if the iPhone 4S is still a good device to purchase, given that carriers that still offer them are giving them away and resale sites like Craigslist, Kijiji and others have plenty of them for sale.

How's your Retina iPad mini battery life? [Poll]

How's your Retina iPad mini battery life?

The iPad mini with Retina Display has been available for a little while now, and so it's time to talk battery life. We've put it through its paces – thoroughly – and completed our full review, but battery life statistics are always much more detailed and accurate when they're crowd sourced. So, if you picked one up, how are you finding the battery life on your Retina iPad mini?

Would you like a colorful, plastic iPad c? [Poll]

Would you like a colorful, plastic iPad c?

Apple has had a mixed relationship in the past with colorful products, but so far the iPad hasn't been one of them. Meanwhile, Nokia has just dropped its first Windows 8.1 tablet, the Lumia 2520, and it's plastic, colorful and relatively well priced. Apple recently brought out a colorful, plastic device of its own, the iPhone 5c, so how would you like a similar tactic with the iPad? How about a plastic, colorful iPad c?

Should Apple make a 'dark theme' for iOS?

Back when iOS 7 was unveiled there was no shortage of opinions on its looks to be found around the internet. Some people liked the general look of it and some people felt it was is a bit too much. A mixed bag I guess you could say as was to be expected considering it was quite a turnaround difference from that of iOS 6. But at the time, no one had really gone hands-on with it or had the chance to give it some extended use.

With no new jailbreaks in a while, is anyone really missing them these days?

With each new iteration of iOS that gets released, there has almost always been the question of when a jailbreak will be available to cover it. For the past little while though, it seems as though that question has kind of died off much like how new jailbreak releases have themselves seemingly died off.

Do you see image retention on your Retina iPad mini? [Poll]

Do you see image retention on your Retina iPad mini?

Much has been said about the – still frankly pretty darn impressive – display on the Retina iPad mini. Narrow color gamuts are clear to see when you sit the mini next to the iPad Air but what about this image retention issue; are you seeing it on yours?

Are you an iPad photographer and proud of it? [Poll]

Are you an iPad photographer and proud of it?

It's a discussion we've had many, many times before; using your iPad – or any other tablet for that matter – as a camera. Some love it, some hate it, some ridicule it and others just don't care, but it's a subject most of us have an opinion on. We always say that the best camera you have is the one you have with you, and increasingly folks are carrying their iPads with them everywhere they go. So, are you an iPad photographer, and proud of it?

Should Apple pay even more attention to emerging markets?

While looking through the iMore Forums today I happened to come across a thread asking whether or not Apple can afford to to stay high-end only. While I don't necessarily agree with that specific comment about them only catering to high end, the conversation quickly changed to how Apple handles emerging markets.
