iOS 7.1: What did it fix for you and what's still broken?

iOS 7.1: What did it fix for you and what's still broken?

iOS 7.1 is live for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and with it a whole bevy of fixes and additions. Since Apple makes updates so easy, and adoption rates are so high, that means many of you have likely taken the plunge already. It also means you've likely scoured through every change to find what'...
How do you use your iPad?

How do you use your iPad?

Apple juggled their iPad lineup yesterday, kicking the iPad 2 to the curb and bringing the iPad 4 back out of retirement. For anyone who wants a slightly less expensive full-sized iPad, that's a big improvement. For anyone trying to decide which iPad they want, it's even more confusing. We have...

Fantastical 2 for iPad review

Thanks to Fantastical 2 for iPad I can now rapidly enter and find appointments and events on all my Apple devices, all the time. Flexibits' hyper-efficient, natural-language parsing calendar app first shipped for the Mac in May of 2011. Fantastical for iPhone landed in November of 2012. Now it's...
How do you protect your iPhones and iPads?

How do you protect your iPhones and iPads?

Almost everyone has been in this situation at one point or another. You pick up a new iPhone 5s or iPad Air, maybe a iPhone 5c or Retina iPad mini, you use it for a while, and then it starts to show signs of wear and tear. Maybe you banged it against the wall and got a little ding on it, maybe it...

Is iOS 7.1 worth giving up your jailbreak for?

iOS 7.1 brings a few new features, some great accessibility updates, and some much needed bug fixes to the iPhone and iPad. If you want it, however, you're going to have to give up your jailbreak to get it. That's because, unlike iOS 7.0.x, iOS 7.1 has been jailbroken yet and, as is increasingly...
Why a 5-inch iPhone 6 is far more important than a 13-inch iPad Pro

Why a 5-inch iPhone 6 is far more important than a 13-inch iPad Pro

iPhone 6. 2014 has only just begun and it seems like 5-inch iPhone and 13-inch iPad Pro rumors are already getting a lot of attention and generating a lot of discussion. That both sets of rumors tend to focus around larger screen sizes is interesting, but what's really interesting is why a bigger...

The iPad 2 is dead...long live the iPad 4!

Following recent speculation, Apple has this morning finally laid the iPad 2 to rest. Replacing it, is the iPad 4. That's right, Apple's "iPad with Retina Display" is back on sale starting at $399 in black and white for the Wifi only version, and from $529 in the same colors for the cellular...
Would you want the Phone app on your iPad?

Would you want the Phone app on your iPad?

Should the iPad have the Phone app? With all the talk of a large screen iPhone 6 this year, and potentially more in the years to follow, it's got me wondering — how big is too big? One of the arguments for a big screen iPhone is that it would better serve people who need a phone but want only...
iPad 4 might replace iPad 2 tomorrow as well, Lightning to reign supreme!

iPad 4 might replace iPad 2 tomorrow as well, Lightning to reign supreme!

The iPad 4 could be set to replace the ancient iPad 2 as Apple's lower-end, full-sized tablet as early as tomorrow. Combined with rumors of an 8GB iPhone 5c, if everything plays out, we could see an end to the venerable 30-pin Dock connector, and the new Lightning plug run the Apple line. Mark...

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?

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...

New Life on iPad section of Apple.com once again brings the experience fight

Apple has just launched a new section of their iPad site called Life on iPad featuring the video of the same name they originally debuted last month during the iPad Air and Retina iPad mini event. Perhaps the best example of "technology alone is not enough" marketing Apple has employed since 2011. From Apple:

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?

Using a keyboard with your iPad? Here are the shortcuts you need to know!

While Apple did a great job with the virtual software keyboard for the iPad, for some people nothing replaces the productivity of pounding on a real, physical, hardware keyboard. Luckily, you can connect a variety of Bluetooth keyboards to achieve just that, and when you do, some traditional shortcuts immediately become available to you in Safari, Mail, and Pages. Federico Viticci has compiled a list of them. MacStories:

BlackBerry makes BBM available for iPad and iPod Touch devices

Initially having only arrived for iPhone, BlackBerry has now gone ahead and updated their BBM chat app to include support for the iPad and iPod Touch, though it's not real iPad support. The late arrival of the app on iOS doesn't seem to of have hampered its efforts though as BlackBerry has stated the app was downloaded over 10 million times in 24 hours between iOS and Android.

iPad Air review

The first iPad was magical and revolutionary, Apple's most advanced technology at an unbelievable price. It lifted the tablet from a decade of obscurity and made it not only a household name, but a household product. The iPad 2, however, proffered that technology alone was not enough. It was thinner, lighter, and faster, but most importantly - more confident. It defined post-PC even as it made the computer itself far more personal. The iPad 3 was new and "resolutionary", but at the expense of thinness and weight. The iPad 4, twice as fast. Both brought specs to what Apple had previously framed an experience fight, and the latter was overshadowed almost entirely by its newer, smaller sibling, the iPad mini. When it came to the full-sized iPad, it seemed Apple had hit a wall.

Enter the iPad Air. Where the limitations of 2012 dictated Apple had to choose between Retina and lightness, the advances of 2013 mean that Apple - that we - can now have both. But is it just more specs, or is it once again getting technology out of our way? Is it simply thinner, lighter, and faster, or has Apple recaptured the delight and the magic? Is it merely a step forward, or is the iPad Air truly another leap?

T-Mobile fumbles free iPad data deal, will they recover?

T-Mobile's calls itself the "Un-carrier" because it's tried to spend much of 2013 disrupting the U.S. wireless business. Its latest attempt to do that was last week: it's selling the new iPad Air and iPad mini with a deal that nets you 200 MB of free data each month. But the initial rollout was fraught with problems. Has T-Mobile burned its bridges with new iPad customers?

Slope by Dekke is the most magical iPad stand you'll ever own

Slope by Dekke is a new stand for iPad, actually tablets in general, that is unique in its own right. As you can see above, it looks much like the base of an iMac stand and pairs beautifully with an attached iPad. The most amazing part, however, is that it uses a series of tiny air pockets to secure your iPad into place and secure itself to most surfaces. It really is like magic.

Are you using a case with your new iPad Air? [Poll]

Are you using a case with your new iPad Air?

To case, or not to case, that is the question. It's the question so many of us ask ourselves whenever we purchase a new Apple device. Do we want to cover up the hotness in the name of protecting it and keeping it pristine underneath. Apple's products are made to be looked at, and the stunning new iPad Air is absolutely no exception. Everyone has their own preferences, but we want to know; are you using a case with your new iPad Air?

iPad Air battery life: How to fix problems and get the most bang from your battery!

The iPad Air may be smaller and much thinner than any full-sized iPad before it, but Apple still promises the same great battery life. That translates into up to 10 hours of web surfing or video watching on Wi-Fi, 9 hours on cellular (if you have a cellular model), and a whopping 24-hours as a personal hotspot. In other words, a lot. In our early tests - we've only had the iPad Air for a few days so far - it's predictably living up to those levels. However, if your iPad Air isn't getting the battery life you expected, if it's not matching the levels you got with your preview device, or simply not working the way it should, here's how to fix it - and how to get the most out of it!

iPad Air Smart Case review

Apple typically releases two types of cases for the iPad, the Smart Cover and the Smart Case. While the Smart Cover only protects the screen and attaches magnetically, the Smart Case provides full body protection in a variety of different colors. The last generation Apple Smart Case left us disappointed to say the least. Let's see if the new version is any better...

How fast is your iPad Air data? (Spoiler: I'm getting 50 down, 90 down on tether!)

Apple claims that the iPad Air as their best-ever LTE 4G radio, with support for more bands in more places in a single model than ever before. While that's great if you live in one of those "more places", what most of us want to know is - how fast and how consistent is it on our networks of choice. I took my brand new iPad Air out for some LTE testing earlier today, and the results were stunning. I averaged between 30 and 50mbps on the device itself, which is on the good side of typical. When I tethered to my 2013 Haswell 13-inch MacBook Air, however, I got between 75 and 95mbps. Yeah, it not only blew the doors off the place, but blew them clear across town. That was on the Rogers network outside of Montreal, and everyone's bands and bandwidth will vary, of course. So, question time:

How fast is your iPad Air data? Let me know what carrier you're on, where, and if you can, try to run a few tests just to get a better sense of range. Either type the results below or, better yet, go post a screenshot in our official iMore forums iPad Air data speed thread.

iPad Air vs iPhone 5s: iSight and FaceTime camera shootout!

While the iPad Air now has the same, improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera as the iPhone 5s - and every other 2013 iOS device - its rear-facing iSight camera remains very much unchanged from the iPad 4 and original iPad mini. What has changed however is the software and hardware that power it. With iOS 7 and the very same Apple A7 found in the iPhone 5s - and the very same image signal processor (ISP) - the iPad Air could see an overall boost in quality anyway. To measure how it stacks up, we put the 5 megapixel iPad Air camera up against the 8 megapixel camera, not see if it would win - it doesn't have a chance - but to see how close it can come!
