macOS 10.15 “Sidecar” feature can use iPads as external screens

Apple is praised for many things but it is also criticized for just as many. One of the latter is how the company "adopts" ideas and features from existing third-party apps and services, effectively pushing those out of business.

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.

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.

New Mac Pro at WWDC 2019 tipped as iOS and macOS app merge gains momentum

Apple is rumored to be planning a big move to unify apps made for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. A new report claims that Apple will combine iPhone, Mac, and iPad apps, which will mean that developers can create a single app and have it work on every platform. That would be a huge deal for Apple's legions of app developers, as it would become significantly easier to create apps for Apple's platforms.
