Apple Oct 22 iPad event: what to expect

The next big Apple event will take place the 22nd of October and it'll be featuring several new pieces of hardware. Amongst these are a new iPad, a new iPad mini, and quite possibly a flow of new information on the 2013 edition of the Mac Pro and a set of new MacBook Pros as well - right in time for OS X Mavericks. This event was announced with an invitation with colorful leaves falling on an Apple logo that simply suggested that "we still have a lot to cover."

iPad 5 anticipation high ahead of October 22nd Apple event

iPad 5 anticipation high ahead of October 22nd Apple event

There's little doubt at this point whether or not there will be an October 22nd event held by Apple that will, in turn, be the first official home for the 5th generation iPad. Seeing an original leak from AllThingsD then a simple "Yep" from the likes of The Loop's Jim Dalrymple, this event will almost certainly center on not only the newest full-sized iPad, but the 2nd generation iPad mini as well. These devices will converge on aesthetic design this time around, both appearing much more like the original iPad mini industrially than the original iPad or iPad 2.

Apple A7 chip detailed: first 64-bit SoC to hit a smartphone

Along with the announcement of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, Apple also took some time to discuss the new processor. This latest will be the Apple A7 chip and perhaps key -- it will be the first 64-bit SoC to come available in a smartphone. This one will be found in the iPhone 5S and aside from the obvious jump to 64-bit, Apple is touting it as being "up to twice as fast" as its predecessor and in general, a "leap forward."

Samsung vs Apple Mobile Profits: the big Strategy Analytics mix up

Samsung vs Apple Mobile Profits: the big Strategy Analytics mix up

It should be clear at this point that Samsung's profits in the mobile sector have not, as a report by Strategy Analytics last week suggested, taken over Apples'. According to Strategy Analytics, "Samsung's operating profit for its handset division stood at US $5.2 billion in the second quarter of 2013" while Apple "recorded an estimated iPhone operating profit of US $4.6 billion". And that's essentially the extent of their basic report - this is not just far too limited to have covered the claim they've made, it's simply inaccurate.

Apple’s iPhone 6S could have a Samsung A9 heart (sorry TSMC)

Apple is said to be using Samsung to build the A9 mobile chips for the iPhone and iPad in 2015, another sign that the firm's attempts to extricate itself from its rival's production expertise are struggling. Although Apple had switched to TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing) for its A-series chip production starting in 2014, according to The Korea Economic Daily it's Samsung's expertise in 14nm manufacturing that has won back Apple's business.

Apple A7 chip tipped with Intel inside

Apple A7 chip tipped with Intel inside

With the pattern ringing true for some time now, it's not unbelievable in the slightest when one hears a tip of a so-called "A7" chip in Apple's future for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. What's slightly more questionable is the possibility that part of the production of this chip might be done by Intel. With word of Apple aiming to pull away from Samsung in their chip production across the board having been an unofficial understanding for quite a few months now, it seems that Intel might be aiming to grab a piece of the pie.
