Phorm iPad mini case puts morphing keyboard over screen

In a way that we've never seen attempted before, the Phorm iPad mini case appearing this week takes on physical keyboards for a digital screen. Instead of making a keyboard that sits separate from the rest of the iPad mini, this keyboard sits right on top. Instead of dismissing the keyboard that's already on the screen, this case puts physical bumps - or keys - above the keys on-screen. How utterly simple this solution is for the masses of keyboard-loving citizens around the world.

Is iPad innovation dead?

Is iPad innovation dead?

Earlier today, something caught my attention. In a report on why the iPad might see a sales dip in 2015, an analyst cleverly shouldered Developers with blame for the iPad’s decline.

Purported iPad Pro case leaked, has four speaker cutouts

The iPad Pro is widely rumored to be Apple’s foray into bigger tablets, challenging the size of a computer screen. At a reported 12-inches or better, the rumored tablet has reached mythical levels. While Apple admits they’ve discussed a larger tablet, the last we’d heard about it from Apple was that it wasn’t even a ‘thing’ yet.

Happy Birthday iPad, you’re dead

Happy Birthday iPad, you’re dead

If you take a look, today you'll find a collection of articles written from the perspective of an iPad hater. Not because the iPad is dying, but because sales figures from Apple suggest that iPad sales aren't growing. They're taking a bit of a dive, as it were. Tablets in general aren't selling all that well, and more than a couple of analysts are on quests to find out why. Is it because everyone already has a smartphone that's big enough to be called a tablet? Does everyone already own an iPad, not needing another?

iPhone 6s mini: do you need another small smartphone?

Rumors abound, Apple may release another 4-inch iPhone in the near future. Instead of abandoning the 4-inch iPhone 5 and 5s, Apple is said this week to be rolling out a "low end" handset with updated specifications and a price point to match. This handset would - unsurprisingly - look and feel similar to the iPhone 6. Components will likely match those of the iPhone 5s, fingerprint sensor and 8-megapixel camera included - and sell for the lowest price point as the iPhone 5s does now.

New iPhones, iPads to have more RAM, source claims

Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, followed closely by the refreshed iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, brought us some of the best hardware of 2014. Leading into the launch of those devices, we’d heard a seemingly endless rumor cycle regarding both what they’d look like, but also what Apple may have planned for the software side of things.
