iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

Apple is slowly blurring the lines that separate its devices and platforms. This year's iPhones, for example, may even look like miniature iPad Pros. That doesn't mean it will get the same features, of course, but there's still some discussion on what features the iPhone 12 may inherit from Apple's slates.

iPadOS 14 update: Apple accepts size, power, and 3rd-party defaults

At WWDC 2020, Apple revealed several big updates to the way iPad operates with iPadOS 14. This new system makes a whole lot of use out of "sidebars" as it were.

Galaxy Tab S7+ renders show Samsung’s 12-inch iPad Pro

While Apple was content to sell its iPads as larger iPhones for the longest time, Samsung was in a position to drive the tablet market space at a very early stage. It may have been too far ahead of its time, though, and Samsung scaled back most of its efforts, only for the iPad Pro to revolutionize that tablet space. Now it almost feels like Samsung is the one playing catch up instead, including with a screen size it was one of the first to try to market.

iOS 14 Safari to get built-in translation, better Apple Pencil support

The Internet has made the world a smaller place but, unless you've taken time to learn multiple languages, chances are you'll come across pages that are incomprehensible to you. Translation tools and browser add-ons do exist, of course, but, in typical Apple fashion, Safari will soon have the ability to translate a page without requiring an extra package or, worse, exposing your data to third parties or even Apple itself.

iPad Pro Magic Keyboard iFixit X-Ray reveals a very busy accessory

What goes into a keyboard cover accessory? Most will probably think just the keycaps, membranes for the keys, and electronics needed to power up and connect the keyboard.

Adobe Photoshop and Fresco on the iPad now come bundled together

For years now, the iPad and especially the iPad Pro has become a creativity tool despite earlier limitations on hardware. Ironically, one of the biggest names in that industry has been a bit slow to jump on that train and capitalize on the passion of digital artists.
