Apple now has YouTube videos for basic support tips

Apple now has YouTube videos for basic support tips

Apple has always prided itself on having personable customer support staff that add a human touch to their service. As nice as that might sound, it doesn’t scale well with the growing number of Apple users. It took to Twitter last year as a sort of compromise that can fit in 140, now 280 characters.

This, in turn, could mark the slow decline and decay of the jailbreaking community.

If the 2018 iPad with Face ID looks this good, I’m sold

Rumors of a new iPad have begun, and if the images we've got here are any indication, Apple's next slate will be a masterpiece. We've seen our fair share of iPhone concepts in the past from a wide variety of creators - but not so much on the iPad - save the months leading up to the iPad Pro. This is probably largely because of the device's relative lack of need for change over the past half-decade.
