Apple gift guide: How to pick the perfect iPod, iPhone, iPad, and Mac!

We're entering what is, for many, the biggest shopping and gift-giving season of the year, and by virtue of their quality, cachet, and overall coolness, Apple gifts are always high on everyone's lists. Whether you're looking for that perfect present for that special someone, or just want to take advantage of the once-a-year sales for yourself, it can be a challenge to figure out exactly which Apple devices to get. When does a Retina iPad mini make more sense than a full-sized iPad Air? When does a MacBook Air? iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c? MacBook Pro or iMac? What about an iPod? Figuring out which iPod, iPhone, iPad, or Mac is your best buy this year is the questions we get asked the most often, and with Black Friday and the Holidays upon us, here are our answers!

iPad Air vs Retina iPad mini: The other decision!

As Rene pointed out yesterday, one of, if not the most frequent question we've been asked this past few weeks is which iPad should you buy. Which iPad would we buy? Podcasts, buyers guides, reviews of each, but it seems everyone really wants to know which gets our personal recommendation. Rene outlined some fine points in both camps, so we'll not go over the same ground again – so if you haven't, go read! – but we came to a different decision. For me, if I really, truly, had to choose just one, I'd be taking the Retina iPad mini.

iPad Air vs Retina iPad mini: The decision!

iPad Air vs. Retina iPad mini. It seems like that's all I'm getting asked about these days. We've done podcasts about it we've done full-on buyers guides for it, and I've done a complete iPad Air review and iPad mini with Retina display review, and still, the questions. Haven't. Stopped. Coming. But I've used both now, a week exclusively on the Air, a week exclusively on the Retina mini, and a week switching back and forth. So, what's the answer?

iPad mini with Retina Display hitting resellers in the UK, 4G LTE models still look scarce

When the iPad mini with Retina Display first launched, here in the UK there was no initial reseller availability – as indicated on the GSX portal. It was either Apple or don't get one, but thankfully that seems to have changed with several major retailers now offering Apple's latest. However, if you're wanting a 4G LTE model then you'll be looking much, much harder, as it seems that WiFi only is about all that's available in a lot of places right now.

Imagining a 13-inch iPad Pro

The minute Apple launches a new device, say the iPad Air or Retina iPad mini, rumors switch immediately to the next. In this case, a 13-inch "iPad Pro". After all, if there can be a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro, why not an iPad Air and iPad Pro? If Apple can make the iPad more portable, why not more powerful? Now, I'm not so much interested in the rumor — there will always be rumors — but in how Apple could realize such an object. Could iOS be scaled to that screen size, and what it would provide beyond the existing, 9.7-inch iPad, or the 11-inch or 13-inch MacBook Air. Previously I imagined a 4-inch iPhone, which became the iPhone 5, and a 7-inch iPad, which we later saw as the mini. Earlier this year I tried imagining a 5-inch iPhone, and... we'll see what happens with the iPhone 6. So now let's imagine a 13-inch iPad Pro...

Some Apple Stores now allowing walk-in purchasing of iPad mini with Retina display

It appears that Apple is now allowing walk-in customers purchase the iPad mini with Retina display. Since last week's odd soft launch, customers could only get a new iPad mini in an Apple Store if they ordered it online and then opted for Personal Pickup due to supply constraints.

iPhone 5s now available SIM-free in the U.S.

U.S. customers can now buy the iPhone 5s without a SIM. This has been an option for iPhone customers outside the United States since launch, and the closest you could come in the U.S. is buying an iPhone 5s off contract with a T-Mobile US SIM. But you can now use a SIM from any carrier you choose, provided that it's GSM-compatible. Like all off-contract iPhones, the SIM-less iPhone 5s starts at $649 for 16GB, and ships in one to two weeks.
