iOS 7 web usage tops 18% in first day, beats iOS 6 record

This year's first day of adoption for Apple's iOS 7 has, according to Chitika, hit just over 18% in just under 24 hours since release. In the first day of adoption for iOS 6 last year - one year ago nearly to the day, as it were - web usage for Apple's newest mobile operating system hit just over 16%, making this - at least by one metric - Apple's most successful upgrade of its mobile OS to date. Meanwhile analytics from Mixpanel suggest that iOS 7 adoption may itself be at a cool 30% in just under a day as well.

Kanex Multi-Sync wireless keyboard brings quick-switch with Bluetooth 3.0

The Kanex Multi-Sync Keyboard works with the iPhone, iPad, iMac, and any other machine (with Bluetooth 3.0 or higher) you think would match up nicely. You've got a full Apple-esque design to the board as well as Bluetooth switching buttons - that means you can press one button for device A, then switch to device B or C with a press of one of your total of three buttons.

iPad 5 in Gold: three color SIM trays appear in repair shops

Now that the iPhone 5s has been unveiled, the 5th generation iPad is up for the big leaks show, appearing this week with three different color SIM card trays. These parts appear to be popping up in a manner not unlike the parts we saw earlier this year that indicated the Gold iPhone 5s as well as what we'd assumed was Gunmetal - that turned out to be called Space Gray. Now the iPad 5's SIM trays are showing up in the same three tones: Gold, Space Gray, and White (silver for white, that is).

iPod touch, nano, shuffle “Space Gray” means no Autumn reboot

It would appear that a reboot of each of the iPod devices graced with color have been given a shade change this week thanks to the iPhone 5s. The iPod touch, iPod nano, and iPod shuffle have been given "Space Gray" to match the iPhone 5s' newest tone. This suggests that while past years have seen a music-centric event reboot the likes of the iPod touch and/or the iPod nano or shuffle, we may see just the iPad and iPad mini given a new generation of hardware.

iPad mini 2 casing leaks

Apple's iPad mini 2 casings have seemingly shown up in the wild again, with a fresh gallery showing the unibody chassis of the smaller tablet cropping up ahead of the expected official unveil early next month. The images, showing a silver-finish iPad mini 2, and shared by Sonny Dickson, are of the WiFi + Cellular version of the iOS slate, going by the plastic antenna insert on the upper rear panel, though of course are missing what's perhaps the most controversial part of the new model.

Asphalt 8: Airborne launches with NVIDIA SHIELD, Tesla Model S, barrel rolls

Asphalt 8: Airborne launches with NVIDIA SHIELD, Tesla Model S, barrel rolls

The 8th generation of Gameloft's rather successful racing game franchise is out today for both iOS and Android devices in Asphalt 8: Airborne. This game takes another step toward making a truly worthy translation of the 2008 movie Speed Racer to the gaming universe. Though it's not Gameloft saying they're doing so, it certainly appears as if the closest game to the mark (in Asphalt 7) has been outdone by this 2013 Asphalt 8 release.
