FaceTime broken with new iPhone update

FaceTime broken with new iPhone update

The latest update to iPhone and iPad devices seems to have broken a crucial component of the video chat system FaceTime. Reports have shown the update to iOS 13.4 for iPhone and iPad caused an issue with FaceTime audio and video calls. The bit that doesn't work seems to be the connection between these newly-updated devices and those still running iOS 9.3.5 or iOS 9.3.6 - the newest software some older devices can get.

iPad trackpad and mouse support isn’t just for the new iPad Pro

Apple's trackpad support isn't just limited to the new 2020 iPad Pro and its Magic Keyboard cover. Though the new tablet and accessory were announced today with the addition of trackpad functionality, they'll actually be features of iPadOS 13.4, Apple has confirmed. That's good news for existing iPad owners - and they won't have to wait until iOS 14.

On iPad’s 10th anniversary, here’s what we expect in 2020

It's been 10 years since Steve Jobs introduced the world to the iPad, and today we're looking at what comes next. In September of 2019, the latest iPad was revealed - iPad 10.2, a 7th-generation tablet ready to roll for a wide variety of use-cases, retaining the elder Apple Pencil and a centered, circular Touch ID and runs the latest iPadOS. In 2020, things are going to get a little bit more unfamiliar.

iPad mini 5 continues to impress in bend test

iPad mini 5 continues to impress in bend test

While Apple's iPads are famous for being extremely thin, they are also notorious for being extremely thin. With a large surface area than a smartphone, the probability of the slate bending and even breaking is equally larger. The thinnest iPad of this generation, the iPad Pro, met a catastrophic end in the hands of JerryRigEverthing's Zack Nelson. The YouTuber has now subjected the 2019 iPad mini to the same torture to see if old school is still the best school.

I’m so glad the iPad mini isn’t dead

Sometimes the fates take away the ones you love, and sometimes - like today, and the new iPad mini 5th generation - you get a second chance.

Apple’s iPad range (almost) makes sense now

Apple's iPad line-up had a big gap in the middle, something the new 10.5-inch iPad Air and iPad mini 2019 address today. Promising to balance affordability and specifications, the new tablets slot right into the midrange, offering not one but two options for those turned off or priced out of Apple's existing iPads.

10.5-inch iPad Air and iPad mini 2019 official: Apple Pencil and bold pricing

Apple made a surprising move this morning, announcing two new iPads by way of a press release instead of the reveal events we're used to seeing. We doubt many Apple fans will care about the form these announcements took, though, as the company is reviving both the iPad Air and iPad mini lines with these new devices. In the case of the iPad mini, that revival has been a particularly long time coming, as we haven't seen a new one of those in nearly four years.

Apple’s new iPad 2019 could keep two beloved features

Apple's new iPad (2019) won't follow the iPad Pro in dropping two of the tablet's most popular features, a new report claims, with the iPad 7th generation said to stick fairly closely to the existing design. Apple left some tablet users frustrated with the two new iPad Pro models in 2018, after dropping Touch ID in favor of Face ID facial recognition.

iPad mini 5 tipped to cut costs, even with feature boost

iPad mini 5 tipped to cut costs, even with feature boost

The 5th-generation iPad mini was teased today with abilities that match those of higher-end devices. This is largely due to the addition of parts that'd previously been used on other devices - much like the most recent standard iPad. The standardization of parts used here would (and does) lower the cost of production for the device while bringing higher processing power and new features to a new-generation device.

iOS 12.2 hints at upcoming iPod Touch, iPad models

It's been a number of years since Apple has updated either the iPad Mini or iPod Touch devices, but that could soon be changing. For the last few months we've heard rumors about a new iPad Mini for 2019, while word of a new iPod Touch is a surprise for many. It seems both are in the works, however, as the latest beta release for iOS 12.2 includes mentions of unannounced devices.
