The best note-taking apps for the iPad Pro and Pencil (2018)

The best note-taking apps for the iPad Pro and Pencil (2018)

The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are arguably the best tablet + stylus pairing currently available. When used with a good note-taking app, the slate is revolutionary in educational settings, opening the door for natural handwritten notes paired with features not possible with pen and paper. The best hardware in the world, though, would be wasted on a low-quality note-taking app, and that's where this list comes in.

Cheaper Microsoft Surface tablet: what it needs to succeed

Cheaper Microsoft Surface tablet: what it needs to succeed

The Internet is abuzz with rumors of a $400 Surface 2-in-1 tablet in the works. Microsoft's premium portable computers have been positively received save for the price tag that very few could afford. This sudden change in direction was reportedly prompted by the tablet renaissance ushered in by the 6th gen iPad. Windows tablets, however, are nothing new and some of them are even as cheap as an iPad. Very few, if any at all, succeeded and Microsoft risks ruining its chances in this arguably promising market. Here are some of the things Microsoft needs to check off if it doesn't want a repeat of the Windows RT.

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

This newest iteration of the iPad isn't made for the people who buy a new iPad each time Apple makes one available. Instead, the iPad we're reviewing here today is the Cupertino company's continuation of a design that's already been proven to work. People that've never owned an iPad, people that haven't bought a new iPad for a half-decade, and people looking to buy iPads for schools - this is the iPad for you. I'm a parent, and it turns out this iPad is for my children and me, too.

Reports poured in from California to Poland, Utah to Romania. Hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husband, because there's no Twitter right now, and that's an issue.

Stop downloading (most) security apps

Stop downloading (most) security apps

Today ESET researchers showed us how most popular security apps are scams. That's a harsh reality - but it's real. The vast majority of highly-downloaded, downloaded en masse apps made for "security" aren't providing security at all. What they're providing instead is a whole lot of advertisements and what ESET describes as "pseudo-security." It's a real mess.

Apple publishes iPad tutorial videos on Pencil, Files and more

Apple has released a handful of tutorial videos that show new iPad owners how to proficiently use their new tablet. This isn't the first time Apple has released instructional videos; it did something similar for the iPhone camera, for example. The videos are short, simple, and no doubt exist to demonstrate just how easy it is for anyone to understand and use iOS on a tablet.

2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

Apple’s devices have never been easy to open up and repair. They are intentionally designed to discourage tampering, which, sadly, also makes repairs harder and more expensive. Especially since most owners are pushed to only use authorized Apple repair services. The newest iPad, a.k.a. the 2018 iPad or the iPad 6, carries a lot of the previous generation’s design so its iFixit repairability score isn’t exactly surprising. That said, sticking to that almost ancient design ironically gives this iPad an advantage when it comes to repairs.
