iOS App Store may soon offer up personalized app recommendations

iPad Pro 9.7 revisited: making it work for work

When Apple first unveiled the already much leaked iPad Pro, the 12.9-inch one, it made a very bold declaration. This iPad, which had a specially designed keyboard cover and worked with a specially designed stylus, is the ultimate PC replacement. It was, perhaps, the most controversial thing about the iPad Pro. Of course, like Microsoft's similar claim about the Surface Pros, the reality wasn't as rosy. We've already seen it in action, when Chris Davies took in on a trip just three months ago.

Apple's update for HomeKit may make the Apple TV even more important, with its addition of remote access to control things from afar, but it turns out you don't actually need the set-top box. In an ideal setup - and certainly how Apple presented it at the WWDC keynote this week - the Apple TV running the upcoming version of tvOS acts as a Home Hub, but if you don't have, or don't want, the set-top box, you can use something else.
