Evolution of iPad: Specs over history

In 2010 Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPad, with a big, bright 9.7-inch 1024x768 screen, and by the miracle of then-modern technology, only 0.5-inches think and 1.5lbs heavy. This morning Phil Schiller showed off not only the new 9.7-inch 2048x1536 iPad Air at 0.29-inches an 1lbs, but the new 7.9-inch 2048x1536 Retina iPad mini at 0.29-inches and 0.73lbs. Miracles of now-modern technology both.

Between them was the iPad 2, still available, though likely still only attractive to education and enterprise mass-purchasers, and 30-pin diehards, the graphically challenged iPad 3, and the powerful iPad 4. A steady march towards the future of mainstream computing appliances. No longer just technology, but simply parts of our lives.

Imagining the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2: What we expect Apple to cover next!

Apple is holding their next big event on October 22 and among the biggest news will likely be the updated iPad 5 and iPad mini 2. It's likely the new full-sized iPad will be made less fully-sized, and it's possible the new iPad mini will get a screen that's more maxi. But what else do we have to look forward to? Let's take a look!

Apple reportedly readying Retina iPad mini for October 22 event

While it's been widely rumored for a while now that the iPad 5 would get the iPad mini's thinner, lighter design this year, rumors about the iPad mini getting the full-sized iPad's Retina display have been split down the middle - some "yes", some "no", some simply "hope so". Daisuke Wakabayashi and Ian Sherr, however, seem to think it's a done deal. From the Wall Street Journal:

Imagining iPad 5 and iPad mini 2: iSight and FaceTime cameras, storage

Some of the bigger questions surrounding the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 involve things like the lighter design for the former, Retina display for the latter, and the potential for Touch ID for both, but what also remains to be seen is what will happen with the iSight and FaceTime HD cameras, tablet editions. While not as dismal as the original iPad camera, they've still lagged enormously behind the iPhone. Will this year be any different?

iMore show 368: iPad & Mac event preview

After Google Hangouts destroyed two weeks of shows, Rene goes it alone to re-re-record the iPad & Mac preview event, detailing everything we just might see on October 22, 2013.

[Apologies again folks, Google Hangouts flat-out failed to record our show two weeks ago, and recorded only the first 10-minutes last week. We're looking at ways to get a backup recording. Apologies also to Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac who was kind enough to join us for last week's show.]

What do you want to see most from Apple's October 22 event? [Poll]

What do you want to see most from Apple's October 22 event?

We're just a few days out from Apple's "still have a lot to cover" event in San Francisco, so what better time to step back, and ask ourselves what we're wanting to see most from the event. As is so often the way with Apple invitations, we're left with more questions than answers, but one thing is certain; there's a whole lot that we could be shown.

Top of the order are new iPads. The last refresh came 12 months ago when Apple introduced the iPad mini alongside the iPad 4. At this point it's pretty much a given we'll be seeing new versions of both, with a likely redesign of the full sized iPad. But, it doesn't stop there, not by a long stretch.

Imagining iPad 5 and iPad mini 2: Touch ID, Apple A7, and M7

While a lighter design for the iPad 5 and Retina for the iPad mini 2 are dominating conversation, there are some other new features that could make an appearance in Apple's next-generation tablets, including Touch ID, the fingerprint identify sensor. Of course, Touch ID requires the new Apple A7 chipset and its secure enclave to work, but that's a likely addition anyway, at least to the full-sized iPad. And with the A7 also comes the possibility of the Apple M7 motion-coprocessor. Would that make sense for a tablet? Would any of it? Let's take a look!

Imagining iPad mini 2: Retina display and the gold play?

When the iPad mini launched it garnered universal acclaim for its smaller, thinner, and lighter 7.9-inch form factor that looked light-years ahead of the then 4th generation iPad. Slightly cheaper, the only thing it really seemed to lack was the high density Retina display of its 9.7-inch elder sibling. The reason for that? Retina is hard. You can have Retina, you can have lightness, and you can have battery life, but not all three at the same time. At least not back then. So what about now? Has time let technology catch up? Can Apple ship a Retina iPad mini in 2013?
