Apple in 2019: AirPower, reverse wireless charging, iPads

Like it or not, and some definitely don't, Ming Chi-Kuo continues to be one of the most listened to personalities when it comes to making Apple product predictions. Despite leaving KGI Securities for TF International Securities, Kuo keeps on churning insight after insight and tip after tip to keep Apple fans and observers curious about the company's plans. In a research note to clients, the analyst unloaded a ton of information, some of which sound like common sense while others sound more like wishful thinking.

Apple acquires Pullstring for likely Siri upgrade

Apple acquires Pullstring for likely Siri upgrade

Apple seems to want to expand the speed at which Siri is implemented in 3rd-party products. At least that's what it'd seem, given their acquisition of the group called Pullstring. This group is in the business of assisting with the building and designing of voice apps for physical products. Oh, they've got their own conversational AI, too.

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 12.1.4 is now available with Group FaceTime bug fix

iOS 12.1.4 is now available with Group FaceTime bug fix

Last week, reports of a scary Group FaceTime bug started making the rounds. If you're an iOS user, you've likely already heard the details, but essentially the bug allowed a caller to hear audio - and in some cases see video - from a recipient's phone before they even answered the call. It was a fairly easy bug to replicate too, which of course makes things worse.

Apple is planning to release an update to the iPad Pro in early 2020, according to a new leak, and it'll reportedly include a laser-powered 3D camera.

FaceTime is down, bug fix hopefully coming soon

FaceTime is down, bug fix hopefully coming soon

Software bugs, just like their physical counterparts, are a fact of life. They can be avoided, yes, but not completely. There are some bugs, however, that are so terrible they might make you squirm uncomfortably. The recently discovered FaceTime bug could be one of those considering its dire consequences for user privacy. Now the service is seemingly down for the count, hopefully, because Apple is scrambling to fix it.

Apple game subscription tipped: Would you join for Fortnite?

Apple game subscription tipped: Would you join for Fortnite?

Gaming on an iPhone or an iPad could get a lot more interesting if this morning's news of an Apple game subscription pans out. According to people familiar with the matter, Apple's plans include a subscription service for games - something like Netflix, but for mobile gaming titles. This sort of subscription service is already live for other platforms - like NVIDIA's GeForce NOW - though that's for full-power AAA gaming titles streamed from NVIDIA's gaming PCs on the GeForce NOW cloud service.

iOS 12.2 hints at upcoming iPod Touch, iPad models

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.

iPad mini 5, 10-inch iPad coming first half of the year

iPad mini 5, 10-inch iPad coming first half of the year

While it seems that Apple is trying to capitalize on its iPad Pros capabilities as “computer replacements”, it hasn’t completely forgotten about its non-Pro slates. In fact, based on information from suppliers, two such iPads are coming within the next five months. But while that’s almost a given considering Apple has not canceled the iPad mini and regular iPad lines, the biggest question is how the company plans on positioning these devices in light of the iPhone XS Max and the 11-inch iPad Pro.

Best Buy has a great deal on the 2018 iPad Pro

Best Buy has a great deal on the 2018 iPad Pro

Last fall, Apple released its most impressive iPad Pro models yet, featuring a gorgeous display, minimal bezels thanks to the adoption of the iPhone X's Face ID in place of a Touch ID home button, and a stunning chassis redesign that results in Apple's thinnest tablets yet. Combined with iOS 12, the new iPad Pros are the closest yet to a true laptop replacement. They also, however, come with steep price tags, but Best Buy is currently running an amazing discount.

Windows Virtual Desktop on iPad could be the computer Apple never wanted

Windows Virtual Desktop on iPad could be the computer Apple never wanted

Ever since the debut of the iPad Pro, Apple has been talking about how its tablet could pretty much replace the long-standing definition of what computers are. But while countless of iPad Pro owners have been able to indeed do work or live completely off an iPad Pro, it’s just a fact that not all the “pro” software one needs is available on iOS. That argument might soon be moot, however, and you might soon be able to do everything on an iPad. Unfortunately, it will be Microsoft who will have the last laugh thanks to its Window Virtual Desktop.

Apple tries to address iPad Pro ‘bendgate’ concerns with new support page

Since the debut of the 2018 iPad Pro, Apple has been facing a large number of concerns and complaints from customers about the tablet shipping with slight but noticeable bends in its body design. The issue grew in the weeks since the device began shipping in November, with users sharing photos online of their new iPad Pro appearing bent right out of the box. Apple stated in December that these slight bends were not considered defects, and it's now gone a step further with a new support page detailing the manufacturing process.
