iPad mini 2 skipping retina again: here’s why

If you're waiting for a so-called "Retina" display on an iPad mini in the near future, you'll be better off planning to wait it out for at least another season. While the iPad mini currently sits with the same display resolution as the iPad 2, the trend for best-of-the-best in all things display and specifications have suddenly proven to be topped out. While this isn't the only indicator for the iPad mini staying with the display it's got now, the trend has become rather apparent: the next waves of smartphones and tablets selling out of stores wont necessarily beat out the previous generation for high-end specs, they'll be aimed at the everyman.

iPhone plastic backs and buttons appear on factory floor

It's once again time to look at the next iPhone, the "budget" model, as it were, with several different colors in store for the near future. This week it would appear that those responsible for manufacturing this next-generation model have let loose several different views of the machine, both from the inside and with its several buttons in full view. You'll see a light blue, red, green, and yellow here, consistent with several recent leaks of the machine in kind.

iPhone color rush: “budget” plastic backs leaked

iPhone color rush: “budget” plastic backs leaked

There's a brand new collection of so-called "budget" iPhone colored backs, the lot of them showing up as especially vibrant tones as expected. It's been expected that this lot would appear with connections to the recently enlivened aesthetics of iOS 7, an operating system given a boost by Apple's Jony Ive himself. Here we see that the innards will, if these images prove true, match the outer bits as well.

Yesterday, iOS 7 beta 3 was rolled out, and shortly afterwards we saw hints that Apple will be using AirPlay to stream iPad and iPhone content to car infotainment systems via an iOS in the Car menu that was found. Now another change has surfaced, this time concerning the "2x" mode on non-Retina iPads, with it utilizing Retina iPhone apps to increase overall quality.

iOS in the Car AirPlay hinted by iOS 7 beta 3

The discovery of 'iOS in the Car" settings in the newly released iOS 7 beta 3 has prompted suggestions that Apple will use AirPlay to stream iPhone and iPad multimedia and apps to car dashboards. A new menu - offering "iOS in the Car over USB", "iOS in the Car over WiFi", and "iAP over WiFi" - was spotted in yesterday's third beta release of the new iPhone and iPad software by developer Hamza Sood, each affecting AirPlay settings.

iPhone 5S specifications may hinge on local voice dictation

iPhone 5S specifications may hinge on local voice dictation

Apple's next release cycle for the iPhone will be an incremental one - if all goes per tradition, that is. As the iPhone 4 was released, the iPhone 4S upgraded with a few specifications that didn't exactly warrant a whole new name (thus the S). The same was true of the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS, and now with the iPhone 5, it would appear that we're edging close to another half-step, this time bringing something slightly less awe-inspiring than Siri.

Plastic iPhones in neon tones: is this really Apple’s next generation?

Plastic iPhones in neon tones: is this really Apple’s next generation?

Several photos have appeared over the past few days of what very much seem to be the back ends of the fabled "budget" iPhone, complete with wildly bright colors to boot. While these images do indeed seem to team up well with the idea that Apple would be continuing some color schemes born in their home-made accessory lines for the iPhone, such wildly divergent delivery demands a second look - could these devices be coming out to reflect the color scheme of iOS 7?
