iOS 14.7.1 update released with connectivity unlock fix

Today Apple released an update for iOS on iPhone and iPadOS on iPad devices. This update goes by the name iOS 14.7.1, and it contains a tiny - but vital - fix to an issue with Touch ID when mixed with Apple Watch and the Unlock with iPhone feature. If this doesn't seem like the sort of situation you're in right now - if you don't own an Apple Watch, or haven't had any issues with iOS 14.7.0, then no worries!

Facebook cloud gaming on iPhones and iPads is an unsurprising mess

Facebook cloud gaming on iPhones and iPads is an unsurprising mess

Facebook wants to dip its hands on anything that can be related to social engagement, and, to no one's surprise, that included gaming. Trying to reclaim its once glorious position as the trailblazer in web games, Facebook created its own Gaming sub-brand, which is both about live streaming game plays as well as streaming games. In expanding its reach to iOS and iPadOS, Facebook has hit a snag with Apple's strict app store policies, forcing it to offer a rather basic and inconsistent web app experience instead.

Apple is expected to release an updated iPad mini tablet later this year, one that may feature a mini-LED display.

iDOS 2 emulator for iPad is on borrowed time, so download while you can

iDOS 2 emulator for iPad is on borrowed time, so download while you can

The creator and developer of the iDOS 2 emulator for iPad has indicated to users that it probably won't be long before it vanishes from the App Store. Chaoji Li announced today that Apple has found iDOS 2 to violate the App Store's rules, giving him 14 days to correct the issues or face its removal. However, according to Li, bringing the app back in line with App Store rules would require removing "critical functionalities" of the emulator, which is something he isn't willing to do.

iPadOS 14.7 released a day after iOS: What’s new?

iPadOS 14.7 released a day after iOS: What’s new?

The iPad version of the "14.7" update post-Beta was released today, right around a day after its iOS equivalent. The software operating systems known as iOS and iPadOS are different, each of them different based on their intended device family, so it shouldn't seem unreasonable that they wouldn't always be released at the same time. But given the release schedule of iOS and iPadOS versions so far, and the fact that they have the same software version number, it's odd to see their release dates differ.

iPad mini 6 with USB-C and A15 chip tipped to arrive this year

The iPad mini has always been the odd duck in Apple's mobile lineup, but it has also been one of its biggest miracles. Even with the arrival of larger iPhones, the iPad mini continued to sell well enough to have reached five generations so far. Despite that, it is also the only one that hasn't seen a significant change in design for years. That might be changing with the sixth-gen iPad mini later this year, but its redesign won't just be skin-deep.

Bigger iPad Pro sizes could be years down the road

Bigger iPad Pro sizes could be years down the road

Although it's not exactly the first one to have a large-screen tablet (remember the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2?), Apple definitely made gigantic slates a thing with its iPad Pros. Straddling the thin line between tablet and laptop, this new breed of computers also blur the lines between these mobile computers. Apple has been closing the gap even further, with the ability to run some iOS apps on Macs and the launch of ARM-based M1 Macs. According to a famed market analyst, Apple might even take the next step and bring the iPad closer to the MacBook in size, at least in a few years.
