iOS 7 for iPad already suiting tablet well

Apple's iOS 7 beta 2 brings with it much-anticipated iPad support, and while we're still some months out from a full - or fully optimized - release, the new version is already looking arguably more at home on the tablet than it does on the iPhone.

iPhone 5S Sapphire Crystal Displays out: Apple and the Vertu factor

Vertu COO Perry Oosting spoke this week on the company's past with Apple, noting how dealings with Sapphire Crystal Displays fell through. This British luxury phone company, Vertu, has itself created smartphones with just such displays working in a lovely manner - but for mass production, it seems, it just wasn't meant to be.

Apple is thinking bigger for its next-gen iPhone and iPad models, according to rumors filtering out of Asia, with chatter of an "iPad maxi" alongside a far-higher-resolution iPhone 5S in the coming months.
