iPad Air 2 vs iPad mini 3 hands-on: an iPad at any cost

iPad Air 2 vs iPad mini 3 hands-on: an iPad at any cost

Apple introduced a couple new devices on-stage this week without going especially far into detail on what’d been changed since their previous generation’s release. One of these devices was the iPad mini 3, a device that didn’t make the generational leap at the same level as the iPad Air 2. At the same time, the release of this tablet bumped down the lowest-cost iPad mini to previously unheard-of low prices for an iPad sold direct by Apple.

iPad Air 2 hands-on: Witness the waif

iPad Air 2 hands-on: Witness the waif

Did the iPad Air need to be any slimmer? Apple certainly thinks so, and so the iPad Air 2 was born, just 6.1mm thick and now blessed with a Touch ID sensor that was previously limited to its iPhone cousins. At first glance it's hard to spot the difference, at least until you pick the Air 2 up, when its waifish build suddenly becomes more obvious.

iPad mini 3 priced, release set for Monday

Right on top of revealing the iPad Air 2 this morning, Apple revealed the iPad mini 3. This device will be very similar to the iPad Air 2, coming instead with the same size display as the previous generation and three color options. This new generation iPad mini 3 also comes with Touch ID for fingerprint identification. The iPad mini 2 will also still be available for sale, as will the original iPad mini. Each successive generation leap will be $100 cheaper, approximately.

This is Apple’s iPad range

This is Apple’s iPad range

Apple's iPad range is getting even bigger, with the addition of the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 joining - but not replacing - the existing line-up. The iPad Air 2 slots in at the top of the range, unsurprisingly, but the original iPad Air will remain on sale with a $100 price cut, while the price of entry for a new iPad is also lower than ever.

iPad Air 2 official: 6.1mm thick and Touch ID

iPad Air 2 official: 6.1mm thick and Touch ID

Apple has taken the wraps off of the new iPad Air 2, the world's thinnest tablet and an astonishing 18-percent thinner than the previous iPad Air. So slim, at 6.1mm, you can in fact stack two of the iPad Air 2 one on top of each other, and still have a tablet that's thinner than the original iPad. Still, the upgrades aren't limited just to the iOS slate's dimensions.

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

This afternoon Apple has suggested that they’ve sold more iPads in the product’s first four years of availability than any other product. Even the iPhone, Apple’s best-selling product, didn’t reach the sales numbers the iPad did in its first four years in its own first four years. Adoption of the iPad was a lot easier to accomplish than the iPhone - no data costs, after all. Now Apple's quest must be how to replace those iPads - what's a new iPad when you already have one, after all?

Report: iPad Pro not even a “thing” yet

Report: iPad Pro not even a “thing” yet

Remember all that chatter earlier in the year (and then a bit later on, and still later) about an iPad Pro? It’s supposed to be a 12-inch tablet, with many assuming the behemoth will take the place of the Macbook Air. It all seems so plausible, except for one thing: we don’t have it yet. A new report suggests the iPad Pro isn’t even close to being an actual product, as many would have you believe. In fact, it’s not even a “thing” yet.

Apple slips up, leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Apple slips up, leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

So, hey — there’s an Apple event tomorrow. We’ve been speculating, like everyone else, that a few new iPads were coming. Typically, that’s just chatter until Apple reveals what they’ve got for us, which usually comes via their announcement. No matter how convincing the leaks or rumors are (remember the iPhone 6?!), we temper it with pragmatism, and patiently wait for Apple to confirm things. They’ve done that a bit early this time, with the new iPad owner’s manual tipping Apple’s iHand for tomorrow’s event.

Apple event predictions: 3D Apple, iPad Air, Mini, Yosemite

Several new bits and pieces are being tipped towards release this week as Apple’s next big event takes place tomorrow, the 16th of October. We’ll be there with bells on - and information releases as fast as you can read them. There we’ll see all manner of new devices, likely an iPad Air update, a new iPad Mini, and more than likely an official releasing of OS X Yosemite for desktop and notebook machines of all kinds - including a tipped new MacBook Air with Retina display - though that's just a less-than-respectable rumor.
