Apple’s popular iPad is gettings its biggest update yet with the release of iOS 11 later this year. The latest version will bring more productivity features which could turn the iPad closer to a laptop replacement device.
To demonstrate its new features, Apple has released a series of short videos to show you how it’s done. Watch them all after the break.
Some might not realise this but whenever you use an iPhone or an iPad, Google is the default search engine for iOS. Whether it is on Spotlight or Safari’s address bar, iOS integrates Google whenever you need to search on the web.
According to a CNBC report, Google could be paying as much as US$3 billion this year just to maintain this arrangement on iOS. That’s a huge increase from US$1 billion paid to Apple 3 years ago.
Now appears to be a good time if you’re interested in getting a previous generation MacBook. Apple Reseller Switch is currently running a Mac promo where they are giving rebates up to RM500.
Say cheese! It looks like we have a clear family photo of all Apple‘s upcoming iPhones and two of them appear to be in what looks like a soft gold colour that we’re not quite sure we like.
The iPhone is always recognisable with its iconic candy bar form factor and that familiar round button. Even with the removal of its mechanical home key, the iPhone 7 still looks pretty much the same as its predecessors.
For the next iPhone, Apple appears to be starting off with a clean slate. From this new leak, we can confirm that the front has more screen than the Galaxy S8 and LG G6. This is the clearest look at the iPhone 8.
In addition to new iPhones, Apple will be releasing a new smartwatch later this year. The current Apple Watch Series 2 is already a huge upgrade over the previous version as it gets built-in GPS and water resistance up to 50 metres deep.
In order for the Watch to work with greater independence, it has to support standalone connectivity via 4G LTE. That’s apparently the next big feature that will be introduced on the upcoming Apple Watch Series 3.
In the first quarter of the year, Apple for the very first time had overtaken Fitbit which has been a dominant wearable brand for the longest time. However, in last quarter, Apple has been dethroned from the top spot and it isn’t by Fitbit.
In the race towards building a smartphone with a fingerprint scanner embedded under the display, it appears that Chinese smartphone brand vivo may have beaten everyone to the punch with their upcoming Xplay 7 smartphone.
The top 5 list for global smartphone shipments is seeing a little shake up this quarter as Xiaomi has recaptured the #5 spot. They were once a top 5 brand before OPPO and vivo had flooded the market with their selfie-centric devices.
As smartphones continue to grow, the tablet segment has been on a decline for the past few years. The iPad which was first introduced in 2010 is also having a slowdown in sales since 2014. With consumers getting comfortable with larger screen smartphones, it seems that the slate form factor is slowly becoming redundant.
Surprisingly, Apple has just posted its first quarterly growth for the iPad year-over-year since late 2013 with a total of 11.42 million iPads sold in the last fiscal quarter.
