UPDATE: Apologies, the early release shown here is exclusively for iOS 11 Beta users. If you’re a Beta user, you can check for updates under Settings > General > Software Update.
Malaysia is once again being left out from the first wave of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X release. While other countries are getting their new iPhone sometime next week, it appears that Malaysia is having better luck in software instead.
As announced during Apple’s keynote event, the final iOS 11 public release will be available to all supported devices on 19 September 2017 but those who have joined the Beta program can start downloading the final release of iOS 11 a week before everyone else.
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.
Tablets shipments are continuing to slow down but the good news is that it’s now declining at a lower rate. According to IDC’s latest Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker report for Q2 2017, a total of 37.9 million units were shipped in the last quarter which is a slight drop of 3.4% year-over-year. A year ago, overall tablet shipments had dropped by 12.3% from 44.1 million units in Q2 2015 to 38.7 million in Q2 2016.
Interestingly, despite the shrinking numbers, the top tablet brands including Apple, Samsung and Huawei have held their places pretty well in the last quarter.
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.

You can now place your order for the 2nd gen iPad Pro in Malaysia. Announced earlier this month at WWDC 2017, the new iPad Pro comes with an advanced 120Hz display, a faster processor and a minimum of 64GB of storage.
The new iOS 11 will be rolling out officially later this year. If you can’t wait to try it out, Apple has finally released the first Public Beta version. Since it isn’t final, expect some bugs and instability as iOS 11 isn’t ready for prime time just yet. If you’re feeling adventurous and are fully aware of the risks, here’s how to get iOS 11 on your iPhone and iPad right now.
Apart from announcing new devices and software updates at WWDC 2017, Apple is now offering more iCloud storage for less. If you’ve been struggling with your non-expandable storage on your iPhone and iPad, this is probably good news for you.
When the iPad Pro was introduced, Tim Cook has mentioned that it could replace a laptop for a lot of people. However, if you take away the optional keyboard and Apple Pencil, it’s still primarily a consumption device.
That will soon change once iOS 11 begins to roll out to all supported iPads. Read on to find out the top 6 new iOS 11 features that would transform the iPad into a productivity machine.
