iPad Air 3 could be an iPad Pro for the common user

An Apple Event has been tipped to take place next month packed with a number of devices, one of which is the long-awaited iPad Air 3, this time tipped to come with some "Pro" features. This upgrade to the iPad Air 2, a device revealed in the year 2014, will very likely take on several key features of the iPad Pro. As the iPad Air continues to be the hero of the pack of iPad devices on the market today, it's only right that Apple give it the features that make it the prime example of what an iPad is capable of.

4-inch iPhone makes perfect sense for rumored Apple event in March

4-inch iPhone makes perfect sense for rumored Apple event in March

Apple's next event has been rumored to be taking place in Mid-march - there the company is likely to shake the industry up by splitting iPhone releases in two: one early in the year, two later on. With rumors of the iPhone 5se on the rise and Apple's most recent earnings call proving that iPhone sales won't be continuing to skyrocket through the future, it's prime time for the company to flip their script. Instead of centering all attention on an iPhone 7, (and its closest relative, an iPhone 7 Plus), the company will break from tradition, coming to terms with the way users around the world are watching releases.

Halloween comes early for Verizon’s DROID release event

Halloween comes early for Verizon’s DROID release event

A spooky sort of invite has been sent by Verizon for an event that's sure to reveal the newest DROID devices from Motorola. This event will take place starting at 11AM Eastern Time on the 27th of October, and the invite suggests one of two things. Either we're going to get a device that's especially good at helping us with the TRICK part of our Trick or Treat shenanigans, or we're just being teased with shards of glass because this device will be especially sharp. We're guessing it's a Moto X of a different name, and though not particularly rugged, a device that's not going to break when you drop it from your pocket.

New Apple TV revealed with touch controls and games

Apple reveals the new Apple TV, complete with a new controller with touch interface. On stage at this Apple event in California this morning, Tim Cook suggested that we are in "the golden age of television", and that "the future of television is apps." "The transition," suggested Cook, "has already begun - over 60% of pay TV streaming video is consumed on an Apple device through an app." It's apparent here that Apple TV will no longer be about "channels", as it were - now they're all about the future where everything is its own individual unit.
