iPad Air 2 registers with “secret” NFC? Not so fast…

Signs of NFC hardware in the iPad Air 2 have prompted speculation that Apple could turn the tablet into an Apple Pay cash register replacement, though it's almost certain not to be something the company could enable in this generation. A recent teardown of the new 9.7-inch tablet found that it contains the same NFC chip as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Since Apple doesn't list NFC among the iPad Air 2's connectivity options, that has led to chatter that it's a feature-in-waiting; however, it's unlikely to pan out that way.

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

Apple is bullish on tablets and, for all it may be the slimmest and lightest of its breed, the iPad Air 2 is undeniably its new heavyweight champion. Dropping weight and bulk while simultaneously gaining power, the iPad Air 2 also dips into the best-selling iPhone 6's pockets for features like Touch ID and Apple Pay. Question is, though, has the new Air done enough to make itself a must-have upgrade?

iPad Air 2 benchmarks blow away iPhone 6, iPad Air

When the iPad Air 2 came out, much of the energy circulated around whether or not you should upgrade. The device had some nice new tweaks, but was it enough to permit spending a few hundred more bucks? The original iPad Air seemed just fine at the time, and really — it still is. Unless you look at the benchmark numbers below. If you do that, any Apple device you might currently have, including the iPhone 6, will feel really dated.

Camp Pokemon app goes mobile for iPhone and iPad

Camp Pokemon app goes mobile for iPhone and iPad

The new Camp Pokemon app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch isn’t the full Pokemon experience. It’ll do an amazing job of bringing you back to the glory days of Pokemon Snap, if that’s your brand of Poke-entertainment, but it’s not quite the full Poke-experience. It does show, on the other hand, how far The Pokemon Company International has gotten from their hard-bar ban on releasing any apps outside the Nintendo ecosphere. It shows that some day we might very well get the real deal.
