This is iPad Pro

Tim Cook began the iPad Pro introduction by saying the iPad was the 'clearest expression of Apple's vision for the future of personal computing'. It's something that's been obvious since the very beginning, and crystal clear since the iPad 2 keynote in 2011. For a large segment of people, using a traditional computer can be an awkward, frustrating, and intimidating experience. The iPad is for them. For others, the iPad hasn't been productive or creative enough simply by virtue of its size and input technologies. The iPad Pro is also for them. It is, simply, profoundly, a bigger, better window into apps and the internet than Apple has ever made before. And it comes a new keyboard and pencil that provide new ways to interact with both.

2015: An Apple TV odyssey

Apple's famous "hobby" of the past eight years might finally be something more than that this year, thanks to a Siri-enabled remote, support for third-party apps, and more. As this moment, it's worth considering how Apple TV got to this point—and where it might go from here.

The Apple TV is good... but here are six ways it could be even better

The new Apple TV is pretty stellar. Mostly. Unfortunately, I've also had some time to bump up against some of tvOS's rougher 1.0 edges. These aren't deal-breakers for me, but in the interest of making the couch-potato evenings of myself and many other new Apple TV owners just a bit better, here are some things I wouldn't mind seeing improved upon in subsequent updates.

Designing Apple TV apps

If you’ve bought a TV in the last few years, it probably runs apps as well. Mine does. I don’t use them, because they’re terrible. But, when Apple says apps are the future of television, I believe them. The new Apple TV runs a different breed of apps — we’re likely to see apps that are on-par or exceed the best iOS has to offer.

Why doesn't the iPhone have wireless charging?

Every once and a while Apple is accused of ignoring wireless charging on the iPhone, or stubbornly refusing to add it. Since the Apple Watch uses wireless charging exclusively, Apple is certainly doing neither in general. So, why isn't it on iPhone in specific?

Don't buy extra Siri Remotes thinking you can use them for multiplayer gaming—you can't

If you're buying a new Apple TV and want to get into multiplay gaming, don't spend money on multiple Siri Remotes. You can only pair one (1) Siri Remote with your Apple TV. Instead, you'll need to use your and your family and friends's iOS devices running a (like updated version of) the Remote app, or better still—MFi game controllers.

The Hermes custom Apple Watch face gives me hope for third-party clock faces

The Hermès-branded Apple Watch not only comes with a custom band, but a custom clock face, too. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Apple's developers built whatever Hermès asked for—even if that included new complications. But I can't help but hope that it's also a hint that custom watch faces are possible—and possibly coming in watchOS 3.

Why I loved attending CocoaLove (or how I learned to love Twitter again)

This past weekend, I attended and spoke at my last conference of the year: CocoaLove. It's the fifth year in a row I've been to conferences on Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. I've essentially been going to these intimate, wonderful three-day experiences since I first started working in the tech sphere, and attending always feels like an anniversary of sorts: A reminder why I love this community as much as I do.
