It’s been rumored for a long time now, but we finally found out about the big announcement the other day: Apple has something “more” to show us. What could it be?
If you believe the rumor mill, we’re going to see a 7.85-inch iPad, new 13-inch MacBook Pros with Retina displays, iPads with Lightning connectors, upgraded Mac minis, redesigned iMacs and maybe — just maybe — a flying unicorn that cries rainbow tears.
What’s your guess? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Lots of talk recently about that rumored iPad mini. As of Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that there are already companies working on the rumored 7.85-inch device, and that it’s coming in October.
I’ve also read rumors (although I can’t find them now, of course), that Apple will send out invitations on October 10, then follow that up with an event on Oct 17. Sometimes when these things are so incredibly specific, they seem plausible.
So what about you? Do you think the iPad mini will be out this month? Let us know in the poll to the right!
With the iPhone 5 fresh out of the gate, now the question turns to the iPad mini. First off, does it exist? If it does, then will it follow the 16:9 form factor of the iPhone 5, or the same as the original iPad? Enquiring minds want to know, so tell us in the poll to the right!
The 12th is a big day in the Apple world. We all assume that the next iPhone will be announced (the invite is pretty clear on that one), but what about this iPad mini/Air that’s been going around for so long? Will Wednesday be the day we see it for the first time, or will its announcement be postponed (or never happen)? Tell us your thoughts in the poll to the right.
The thought of a smaller iPad strikes fear into the hearts of many, with some going so far as to call the idea a large smartphone. True, there’s a lot of speculation surrounding the tablet and many reports have claimed that it will be unveiled next month during a special Apple event at which the next iPhone will also be either released or previewed.
There’s so very much information to gather about this rumored device that one could spend days looking for it all. Even the good John Gruber wrote an in-depth article exploring the many possibilities of a smaller iPad. I, however, have decided to jot down my own thoughts on the idea along with some useful information for all of you wondering what such a device would be like. (more…)
Last week, we asked you about the possibility of a smaller iPad to fit into the iOS lineup. It makes a lot of sense on some fronts, not so much on others. But with the success of the Nexus 7, lots of people are saying that Apple should make a smaller iPad, and recent testimony at the Apple/Samsung trial seems to show that they’ve considered the possibility.
But this is your call. Let’s say that the iPad mini (or a smaller iPad with some kind of name) is announced in the next few months — heck, even the next year. Would you buy one? Let us know in the poll to the right.
There’s been a ton of talk about the new iPad, specifically the possibility of a 7.85-inch iPad mini. Does it exist? Has it been built already? Will we see it at the rumored launch event on Sept 12?
Well that’s an awful lot of questions, and we might have an answer in the next few weeks. But for now, let’s speculate. Do you think we’ll ever see an iPad mini? Will it come this year or next? Let us know in the poll to the right.
Apple today sent out invites to journalists for their annual iPad event. This year, the event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on March 7th at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. Accompanying the invitations, Apple included the traditional image, which reads “We have something you really have to see. And touch.”
While there has been a great deal of speculation regarding this device in the past few months, there are a few things that have remained the same in most of them. Hit the break to see some detailed information on what Apple’s next-generation tablet may include.
What’s the latest iPad rumor? Well there are a ton of them going around nowadays, what with a rumored event happening March 7th and all that, but one of the hot tickets is that Microsoft Office is coming to the iPad. Don’t believe it? Well there’s a picture, a story on The Daily and a journalist who’s fighting pretty hard to prove that he’s right. And, as they say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
But what does this mean for the iPad? Do we really need Office or is it just a crutch for people who think they need it? Talk it out after the jump.
