Apple’s 3 new iPads not coming until second half of 2017

If you’ve been holding out for a new Apple tablet, you might have to wait a bit longer or, depending on your particular proclivities, just suck it up and buy one already. That’s because, according to sources, Apple’s new iPads aren’t scheduled to be even announced until later this year. And even then, what it has in the works might not exactly be to everyone’s liking, with Apple shuffling its tablets around to accommodate a totally new size model.

10.5-inch iPad in Q2 could minimize effect of dropping sales

10.5-inch iPad in Q2 could minimize effect of dropping sales

The famed Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities has some interesting forecasts for the iPad line coming in a few months. Yes, there will be new iPad, perhaps a reassuring idea after Apple’s near silence on that front for months. However, they might not be as sensational as some might hope. Well, except perhaps for a new, third, and odd 10 to 10.5 inch model that will be joining the team, meant to be a high-end tablet that still manages to steer clear of iPad Pro territory.

LEGO Boost hands-on: simplifying brick robotics

LEGO Boost hands-on: simplifying brick robotics

It's almost never too early to begin learning about robotics - that's what LEGO seems to be telling us with LEGO Boost. The LEGO Boost system is a platform aimed at children 7-years and up. This is decidedly different from previous LEGO robotics sets offered in the past, like the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 which requires a bit more skill than most 7-year-olds are able to muster to make full use of.

Leka robot ball hands-on: bigger than Sphero (with a face!)

Leka robot ball hands-on: bigger than Sphero (with a face!)

While Sphero might have the tiny remote-control ball market cornered, it would seem that Leka is aiming for the next size up. Leka is a robotic companion ball aimed at children. While it might be aimed specifically at children with special needs, we couldn't help but be entranced by the possibilities in everyday mobile play. This ball has a face, after all, and far be it for me to deny the joy of chasing a cartoon robot creature across the floor.

Super Mario Run Review: It is not free, there is a fee

Super Mario Run Review: It is not free, there is a fee

The game Super Mario Run was released today on iOS for free, with a single in-game purchase costing $9.99 USD. My first response to this was - wow, that's a different approach than I'm used to. Most in-app purchases center on coins, extra lives, and filter packs. Here, Nintendo has locked most of the game behind a single pay-to-open door.

Super Mario Run will be released today, December 15th, 2016, at around 1:30 PM Central Time for both iPhone and iPad. This information may turn out to be off by a few minutes, depending on how close to the wire last-minute preparations go - glitches might also happen, but they probably wont. This is for the iOS version of Super Mario Run, and while iPhone and iPad may be first, Android won't be far behind.

Super Mario Run hops its way onto iPhone and iPad

After a few months of waiting, today is the day that Super Mario Run arrives on iOS. After Pokemon GO, Mario is the second Nintendo property to make an appearance on mobile devices, with more franchises slated for mobile games in the future. Perhaps more importantly, Super Mario Run is the first Nintendo-developed game for iOS, so in a way, this marks the beginning of a new era for the big N. UPDATE: It's out now!

Super Mario Run hands-on: The holiday’s must-have iPhone game

Super Mario Run hands-on: The holiday’s must-have iPhone game

Could Super Mario Run be the Pokemon Go of the holiday season? Based on an early taste of Nintendo's first ever game for Apple devices, ahead of its full release in a week's time, I predict it'll be even bigger. Not only can it count on one of the most iconic characters in gaming history, its combination of super-easy controls and addictive gameplay have the potential to get gamers and non-gamers alike hooked.

New iPad leaked in Taiwan

New iPad leaked in Taiwan

Apple's next new iPad is tipped to come with a body that's similar to today's 9.7-inch iPad Pro, with less bezel. This means that a larger display will be able to fit in a space that's the same as current-era iPads. As such, the same cases and docks MAY be able to fit, but a slightly thicker body could ruin that bit before it happens.

Now that this year's new iPhone has been launched, expectations are turning towards the next generation of iPad. Apple's last tablet releases included the debut of the large 12.9-inch iPad Pro, followed by a more the more reasonably sized iPad Pro in the 9.7-inch form-factor. But now rumors are buzzing that next year will see refreshed iPad Pros in both those previous sizes, along with a brand-new 10.9-inch model featuring a bezel-free design.
