Your new iPad release date tipped for late May

Earlier this month we got a peek at the next new iPad collection, including new iPad Pro in two sizes. In a slightly odd fashion, Apple revealed their for-sale date before revealing solid release dates. As such, we don't yet know exactly when the new iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch models will be shipping. A tip today suggests we'll see said devices shipped in late May.

Your new 2021 iPad Pro 12.9″ won’t work with your old Magic Keyboard [Updated]

Your new 2021 iPad Pro 12.9″ won’t work with your old Magic Keyboard [Updated]

Apple's Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro may have been the biggest nudge in making the tablet a more capable laptop replacement, but don't expect the removable folio case to play nicely with the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Despite the recently-revamped largest iPad Pro looking, on the face of it, identical to the 2018 and 2020 versions of the tablet, a slight increase in thickness means a big hit on your wallet if you're upgrading.

iOS 14.5 release and how it’ll change your iPhone and iPad experience

A major software update is about to appear on your iPhone and iPad. It's called iOS 14.5, and it may be the most important upgrade you might never know happened. I say "might never know" because the most significant part of this software has to do with the ways in which iOS 14.5 affects user privacy, stopping user data tracking that you might never have noticed in the first place.

Apple April 2021 event: What to expect from “Spring Loaded”

Apple April 2021 event: What to expect from “Spring Loaded”

As it generally is with an Apple Event announcement, we do not expect the title of said event to imply anything specific for said event. There won't likely be any major physical, metal springs in play - they're almost certainly just saying that the event is taking place in the Spring, and that they have some exciting products to show. Also the spring graphic makes for a very interesting iteration of the Apple logo.
