iPhone and iPad Pro purchases limited due to constrained supplies

iPhone and iPad Pro purchases limited due to constrained supplies

Against all odds, Apple launched two new iPad Pros this week, though the expected iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 8 and its larger sibling remain absent. That may give a feeling that everything is OK in Apple land, at least until people try to buy these and other Apple products from the company's online store. For now, buyers are being limited in the number of iPhones and iPads they can buy under a single name, one of the first visible signs of the COVID-19 coronavirus' effects in the industry.

Is it time for an even bigger iPad Pro?

Is it time for an even bigger iPad Pro?

The gap between the iPad Pro and the MacBook only gets smaller, and now I suspect it's time for Apple's tablet to get bigger. The arrival this week of the new 2020 iPad Pro, complete with LiDAR Scanner camera and fancy new Magic Keyboard cover, saw Apple take a huge step with the addition of mouse and trackpad support, and an on-screen cursor.

Logitech’s new iPad keyboard cover adds a trackpad (and undercuts Apple)

Apple aren't the only ones with a new iPad keyboard today, with Logitech unveiling a trackpad-toting keyboard case for the iPadOS tablet. Unlike the Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro, though, the new Logitech Combo Touch is intended for Apple's more affordable tablets too, though it'll only really come into its own when iPadOS 13.4 drops later in the year.

iPad trackpad and mouse support isn’t just for the new iPad Pro

Apple's trackpad support isn't just limited to the new 2020 iPad Pro and its Magic Keyboard cover. Though the new tablet and accessory were announced today with the addition of trackpad functionality, they'll actually be features of iPadOS 13.4, Apple has confirmed. That's good news for existing iPad owners - and they won't have to wait until iOS 14.

Apple has announced a new iPad Pro, adding a Magic Keyboard cover with trackpad, upgrading the processor, and building in a LiDAR Scanner camera for augmented reality.

iPad Air 3rd gen blank screen issue prompts free Service Program

Apple is both famous and infamous for its meticulous attention to detail but even some fans have accused the company of losing its touch lately. It isn't just with the design of new products or buggy software but there have also been times when hardware quality and durability have been put into question, like the notorious MacBook Pro butterfly keyboard switches. The latest to join that hall of shame seems to be last year's iPad Air, which now has its own free Service Program to address rising complaints about suddenly blank screens.

An Apple tech repair puzzle and the potential for Wireless OS Recovery

Let me tell you a story about how the Apple gadget ecosystem can trap itself, under the right set of circumstances. While you read the set of problems that I'm about to recount, consider how quickly it could all have been resolved, had we been able to use the still-in-development "OS Recovery", or wireless device recovery system via iOS 13.4 Beta 4. This is, in my opinion, the most important feature Apple's developed in the past several years at least.

Apple tipped to release iPad keyboard with trackpad later this year

The iPad Pro may soon be far more useful as a productivity device, at least if a new report is true. A leak alleges that Apple will release a new keyboard for the iPad that features a trackpad, adding the sorely needed functionality that would make the iPad Pro more useful as a laptop replacement. The new keyboard, if it is launched, will join Apple's existing -- and trackpad-free -- iPad keyboard.
