Apple might reveal a new iPad next month

TwitterFacebook

A redesigned iPad Pro might be announced next month.

9to5Mac has obtained an image of what it claims is an inventory listing for cases for an iPad Pro with a 10.5-inch screen — an iPad that doesn’t exist yet.

According to the listing, Urban Armor Gear (UAG) is preparing to ship folio cases made for a 10.5-inch iPad Pro in June. 

Case leaks are a dime a dozen and nothing new when it comes to revealing unannounced products, but the fact that UAG, a major case maker, is throwing its weight behind what is only a rumored iPad Pro suggests Apple might not wait until the fall to revamp its most powerful tablet. Read more…

Apple's USB-C plans might not kill the Lightning connector

TwitterFacebook

Calm down, Apple fans. We’re probably not going to lose the Lightning connector — not with the iPhone 8, at least.

The Wall Street Journal dropped a bombshell on the tech world earlier this week with a report claiming Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 will ditch the company’s standard Lightning connector in favor of a USB-C port. This would be a huge move for Apple – on par with the iPhone 7 killing the headphone jack – as a shift in charging ports would leave loyal iPhone adherents with piles of Lightning-dependent accessories in the lurch

However, new information claims all three of this year’s iPhone models will keep the the Lightning connector, but they’ll adopt USB-C Power Delivery technology for super-fast charging speeds. Reliable Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities shared the news in his latest research note, which first surfaced on MacRumors.     Read more…

Samsung’s TabPro S did a good job modeling itself off the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and iPad Pro, but it was no Surface Pro killer.

With no Surface Pro 5 available (yet), Samsung might get its chance to leap ahead of the competition, assuming leaked product details from The Leaker turn out to be the real deal.

Samsung’s reportedly planning to announce a successor to the TabPro S in a few weeks at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the report claims.

The so-called Windows 10-powered TabPro S2 looks like it’ll keep the design aesthetic of the TabPro S, meaning it’ll be thin and light, but overhaul the internals. And from the looks of it, some models will run Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro, and some will have 4G LTE: Read more…

You might not have to buy a Google Pixel or Pixel XL to get the company’s intelligent Assistant after all.

LG’s upcoming G6 smartphone might be the first non-Pixel phone to include Assistant, according to a report from BusinessKorea. LG is also said to be in talks with Amazon to possibly incorporate Alexa into future phones.

When Google launched its Pixel phones in October, it touted Assistant as one of the main selling points. Google CEO Sundar Pichai called the Assistant “your own personal Google.” In Mashable’s testing, Assistant bested Siri in a number of ways. Read more…
