LG goofs with 8K iMac claim

LG goofs with 8K iMac claim

LG has potentially dropped itself in a tank-load of hot water, mistakenly putting words in Apple's mouth and claiming an 8K iMac launch has been confirmed for 2015. The goof comes as part of LG's pre-hyping for 8K UHD resolution - a whopping 7,680 x 4,320 - which it expects to succeed 4K resolution over the next few years, though so far only a single panel has been shown off publicly. So far, so good, but LG then goes on to assert that Apple has already committed to an iMac upgrade with an 8K panel sometime this year.

Retina 5K iMac hits Apple’s refurbished site

Retina 5K iMac hits Apple’s refurbished site

That all-new Retina 5K iMac is a sight to behold. The screen itself is awe inspiring awesome, and will definitely spoil you for all other monitors if you look at it too long. Apple’s new desktop machine isn’t just pretty, though. Under the hood, there are some mean specs that keep things plugging along no matter what tasks you toss at it. The asking price of $2,499 (for the base model) puts the dreams in check, but the newest iMac is now available refurbished — and cheaper.

iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

It takes a lot to stand out in tech these days, but the 2014 iMac with Retina 5K display manages it. Fronted by a frankly astonishing number of very, very pleasing pixels, it’s the all-in-one that’s already luring many away from the Mac Pro order page. While you can make a solid product - even a successful one - by cherry-picking parts off a supplier’s shelf, sometimes it takes cooking up your own components if you want to lead the pack rather than just compete within it. In that vein, Apple tired of waiting for a 5K display and so created one itself, turning the now-familiar iMac design into something altogether more special.

iPhone and Mac way up, iPad down in Q4 2014

iPhone and Mac way up, iPad down in Q4 2014

In releasing their quarterly earnings, Apple also made available their device sales figures. As you might have guessed, iPhone sales were up over last quarter on the heels of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. They were also up over last year, showing a solid trajectory. The rest of Apple’s product lineup did equally well as a whole, but iPad sales continue to slide. That trend may only continue in the face of the iPhone 6 Plus, which will naturally eat at iPad mini sales.

New Retina iMac teardown reveals moderate repairability

New Retina iMac teardown reveals moderate repairability

Apple took the wraps off its new iMac with 5K Retina display yesterday, and now a single day later the handy folks over at iFixit have already cracked it open (gently) to see what lies beneath its alluring surface. The question was posed: will the new ultra-high-resolution display make the new iMac's repairability more troublesome? The end result reveals a lot of favorable points for the machine, but there are a couple big hassles that knocked the final score down a few notches.

An Apple Thunderbolt 5K Display? Don’t hold your breath

An Apple Thunderbolt 5K Display? Don’t hold your breath

First reaction among those setting eyes on Apple's new iMac with Retina 5K Display after it was announced yesterday was typically along the lines of "Wow": even Tim Cook couldn't resist the charms of the 14.7m pixel all-in-one, and he knew it was coming. The second, though, from a few laterally-thinkers in the crowd, was to ask whether the iMac would support Target Display mode, and thus turn into a standalone 5K monitor for a plugged-in MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, that's just not the case, and in fact some big changes need to take place before we can even get a standalone 5K update for the aging Thunderbolt Display.

You can order Apple’s new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 now

Apple has opened its virtual store doors for preorders of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, beginning pre-sales of the two new tablets ahead of their availability at retail from next week. The two iOS tablets were announced yesterday at Apple's Cupertino event, running iOS 8.1, and each updated with Touch ID sensors for easier unlocking and payment support with Apple Pay. The biggest changes, however, have been saved for the iPad Air 2, which comes with a new processor as well as an even sleeker design.

Retina iMac hands-on: Tim Cook explains the “Wow!”

The iMac has always had a certain wow-factor, particularly in its most recent design iteration with its 5mm-thick body, but pair that with the new Retina 5K Display and you have an even more eye-catching machine. Announced at Apple's event this morning, the iMac has a whopping 5120 x 2880 display for a huge 14.7m pixels, and while that means you can't see them individually, check out after the cut for the sum impact... with a surprise interruption from Apple CEO Tim Cook to tell me about the new all-in-one's "wow" factor.

Retina 5K iMac display has insane pixel count

If you were thinking the iMac display was lacking, you might not be alone. Apple has taken the next step forward with their desktop machine, bringing in the “world’s highest resolution display”. Not only Retina, the new iMac is going to be Retina 5K. What does that mean, exactly? It’s got seven times more pixels than your awesome HD TV. It’s also only 5mm thin at the edge, and uses a lot less energy than the existing iMac. Less power and more pixels? Yes, please.
