iPad Pro 10.5 iFixit teardown unmasks an iPad Pro 12.9 Mini

iPad Pro 10.5 iFixit teardown unmasks an iPad Pro 12.9 Mini

Given their proximity in sizes, the new iPad Pro 10.5 is more often compared to last year’s iPad Pro 9.7. But, as they say, looks can be deceiving. In tearing down the new “Goldilocks” of iPad Pros, iFixit discovered that the 10.5-inch newcomer has, in fact, more in common with the larger 12.9-inch model from late 2015 when it comes to the internals. But rather than being a bad thing, in some ways it could be the start of a more standard, and only so slightly easier to repair, iPad Pro line.

iPad Pro 9.7 vs iPad Pro 10.5: is it worth the upgrade?

iPad Pro 9.7 vs iPad Pro 10.5: is it worth the upgrade?

Instead of consolidating its tablet lines, Apple just diversified it. Well, somewhat. We still don't know the ultimate fate of the iPad mini line, now believed to have been made irrelevant by the iPhone 7 Plus segment. The new non-Pro 9.7-inch iPad seems to combine both the original iPad and the iPad Air. And the iPad Pro 9.7, without a successor, has practically been displaced by its 10.5-inch sibling. With the fate of the smaller iPad Pro now in limbo, consumers might be wondering if its time to make an upgrade. We take a deeper look between the two more portable iPad Pros to give you that answer.

Android versus iOS 11: what Google needs to do

Android versus iOS 11: what Google needs to do

Although the upcoming iOS 11 naturally has something for both iPhones and iPads, Apple made it quite clear that this release is special for its tablets. In fact, it even called it the biggest iOS release for the iPad in the history of iOS releases for iPads. Given the new features, iOS 11 on the iPad Pro was immediately compared with the Microsoft Surface Pro and its cousins. Curiously, there has been very little comparisons made with Android. Ironically, Android is in better shape to take on Apple’s new tablet champion, but it definitely needs some work to widen its lead. Here’s some of the things Google can do to make that happen. Call this a wish list for Android P.

iPad Pro with iOS 11 isn’t enough to compete with the Surface Pro

iPad Pro with iOS 11 isn’t enough to compete with the Surface Pro

As someone who has uncharacteristically fallen in love with his 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the revelation of iOS 11’s features was like an answer to long-held wishes. An expanded dock, a file manager, drag and drop. These do make the iPad Pro an even more convincing PC, or at least laptop, replacement. But as someone who also owns a well-aged Surface Pro 3, the iPad Pro is still a few leagues away from toppling the Surface Pro and its kin. Because unless Apple makes very drastic changes, the iPad, even with iOS 11, is still pretty much a gigantic iPhone.

Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite arrives in 10, 8 inch sizes

North Korea unveils ‘iPad’ tablet, brags about having 40+ apps

North Korea unveils ‘iPad’ tablet, brags about having 40+ apps

North Korea has produced another tablet for its unfortunate citizens, one it calls the 'iPad.' Obviously not being an Apple device or anything like it, the tablet runs an unknown operating system and features bland, low-end specs, though compared to other limited offerings in the nation, it may be one of the more desirable consumer computing products. Apple hasn't commented on the illicit use of its brand.

ASUS has three new ZenPads sitting quietly at Computex 2017

A lot of the Computex 2017 spotlight has been lavished upon super thin notebooks and convertibles, including not so super but still thin gaming notebooks. In that context, it's not surprising but probably still disappointing for Android fans that ASUS didn't even spend a second or two on stage to say it actually had some new Android tablets. If not for keen-eyed attendees, the world would have probably not known that there are also three new ASUS ZenPad Android tablets that could hit the market soon as well.
