M1 iPad Pro durability test ends with a wrinkle

M1 iPad Pro durability test ends with a wrinkle

This year's 12.9-inch iPad Pro may be the most revolutionary Applet tablet ever since the company first introduced the iPad Pro line. It now runs on Apple's most powerful chip yet and has even switched out the plain backlit LCD for a Mini LED-backlit LCD. And as with anything that changes its formula, there might be some changes that have resulted in reducing the tablet's durability. That's what YouTuber Zack Nelson of JerryRigEverything fame and infamy set out to find out, putting the largest iPad Pro to his rigorous tests.

Xbox Game Pass cloud streaming is coming to Safari really soon

Xbox Game Pass cloud streaming is coming to Safari really soon

Cloud-based game streaming hasn't been making headlines of late unless you count the negative press that Google Stadia has been getting. In fact, the latest game streaming news once again puts Stadia at a disadvantage, even if it isn't about Google's service at all. Microsoft let it be known almost in passing that its Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming will be rolling out to web browsers in the next few weeks. That includes Safari, which will become Xbox Cloud Gaming's gate pass into iPhones and iPads, something Stadia has yet to achieve.

Galaxy Tab S7 FE will only get quarterly updates

Galaxy Tab S7 FE will only get quarterly updates

When Samsung turned over a new leaf and promised more regular updates for its phones, many probably hoped it would apply to all devices equally. Of course, not all of Samsung's devices are made equal and even some older flagships aren't getting the same treatment. It is, however, strange when a new device that is almost top-tier doesn't get the same favor as slightly older products on the same tier. That is the surprising situation that Samsung is putting would Galaxy Tab S7 FE owners in with the recent changes it made to its software update schedules.

M1 iPad Pro iFixit teardown reveals XDR Display Mini LEDs inside

Confirming months of rumors and speculation, Apple finally launched a new iPad Pro with two rather significant changes. Its shift to an Apple M1 chip further blurs the boundaries between iPad Pro and MacBooks but it is really the switch to a Mini LED screen that has some people talking. It's not all in good ways, though, as some don't seem to be convinced of the end results of the more expensive technology. On a purely technical aspect, however, iFixit's initial teardown assessment of the 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro proves to be at least more interesting.

A new report is going around that claims Apple is currently working on a new version of the iPad Pro that features wireless charging.

Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) with S Pen Android 11 update is finally here

Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) with S Pen Android 11 update is finally here

Despite its efforts to streamline its products, Samsung still has quite a number of them with sometimes confusing names. Not all of them are created equal and, unsurprisingly, not all of them get the same treatment as far as updates are concerned. That's sometimes true even for mid-range devices that are still under support, especially Samsung's mid-range tablets. That was the case with the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 from 2019 that carried an S Pen which is only now getting its Android 11 and One UI 3.1 updates at long last.

AT&T 3G network shutdown is finally happening in February

As the world moves slowly but surely towards supporting 5G, network operators are itching to finally ditch the oldest cellular networks they're still supporting.

It seems that AT&T will indeed be the first to do so by February 2022 and it has thankfully released a list of devices that will continue to work beyond that cutoff date.
