iPad reportedly getting hardware tweaks but no new model

In a relatively unheard of - or unspoken of move, at least, on Apple's part, the iPad has been reported as making some changes to the current hardware that makes up the iPad 3. This 3rd generation iPad (with Retina display) will supposedly be getting a slightly thinner chassis as well as a lighter design overall. It will also be getting a larger camera lens hole, though no word has been spread quite yet on if the actual camera will be affected.

iPhone 5 set for quad-core A6 chip

iPhone 5 set for quad-core A6 chip

At some point in the year 2012, Apple is getting set to release a brand new iPhone, or that's what the rumor mill would have you believe, this time packed with a massive quad-core A6 chip. This time of year is always going to see its fair share of iPhone rumors, or it certainly will if DigiTimes, the source for this current tip, has anything to say about it. With leaks of information that are sometimes right on the money as far as Apple factory parts news goes, it's always interesting to hear what this often China-based news source has to say.

Does an iPad Mini add up, Retina style?

Does an iPad Mini add up, Retina style?

Apple's iPad Mini is the rumor that refuses to die, with several high-profile sites lending their support to speculation that a "tweener" iOS tablet is indeed in the pipeline. Such a slate would presumably instantly help Apple better compete with the Kindle Fire juggernaut, as well as the freshly announced Nexus 7, but that's assuming it can keep up its end of the bargain. Namely, does Apple - and its suppliers - have the technical capabilities to deliver a screen good enough to bear the Retina Display branding?

iPad power costs $1.36 a year

iPad power costs $1.36 a year

For a device that's so extremely popular that the rest of the tablet market is inevitably compared to it first and foremost, it seems that the iPad is undeniably inexpensive when it comes to cash needed to charge it up. The iPad has an internal battery - a rather large one, at that - and according to Electric Power Research Institute, it's only costing you an average of $1.36 USD a year to keep the device on. This study also included several other devices and electronic items you've got around the house as well, with the most expensive item being a refrigerator at $65.72 per year.

Apple fights hard for iPad3.com domain

Apple fights hard for iPad3.com domain

Apple is determined to get the iPad3.com domain, after the company filed a claim for the inactive domain with the World Intellectual Property Organization for the second time in two months. While the iPad 3 only existed in everyone’s mind prior to the unveiling of the new iPad [see our full review here], it’s clear that Apple recognizes that some people still call it the third iPad to differentiate it from the others, prompting them to move toward trying to seize iPad3.com.

Chrome for iOS hits US App Store

Chrome for iOS hits US App Store

Chrome for iOS, announced at Google IO just a few hours ago, has already begun to hit the App Store, though there's a sting if you're expecting the full Google browser experience. The new browser is the latest iteration of Chrome, bringing features like tab sync to iPhone and iPad; however, it's not built on the speedy underlying engine of Chrome on other platforms, such as Android.

iPad mini rumors reignite over Nexus 7

iPad mini rumors reignite over Nexus 7

Google's own-brand entrance into the 7-inch tablet market with the Nexus 7 has refueled speculation about a so-called iPad mini, with Apple expected to face increasing pressure to compete at the tweener size. Rumors of a smaller iPad - which would slot into the mid-point between the existing, 9.7-inch model, and the 3.5-inch iPhone and iPod touch - have circulated for as long as the iPad has been on sale; however, the arrival of the new Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean is arguably the biggest motivator yet for Apple to make good on the heresay.

Apple fined $2.28m in Australia over 4G iPad court case

Apple fined $2.28m in Australia over 4G iPad court case

It looks like the iPad 4G fiasco in Australia has come to an end, although we imagine Apple isn't exactly happy with the result. If you remember, the company sold “WiFi + 4G” versions of the new iPad in Australia, but the tablet wouldn’t work on the country’s LTE networks, causing confusion among customers. The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission set out to make things right by taking the case to court, and now Apple has been ordered to pay a AUD $2.55 million (~$2.28 million) fine.
