Posted by admin under iPad, iPad News on Wednesday Oct 23, 2013

Apple unveiled a lighter, thinner model of its best selling iPad on Tuesday, calling the new device the iPad Air.

The debut of the new device came at a press event in San Francisco amid tightening competition in the tablet computer category, which Apple launched with the debut of the iPad in 2010, and which is set to outsell personal computers for the first time this year.

Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said the new device features Apple’s latest A7 chip, and is 20-per-cent thinner and 28-per-cent lighter than previous models, while still boasting the same 9.7-inch Retina display.

Posted by admin under Apple News on Wednesday Oct 16, 2013

Apple invited journalists Tuesday to a new launch event scheduled for October 22, where the company is expected to unveil a new line of iPads.

The invitation featured what looks like a pattern of multi-coloured leaves, and the tagline ”We still have a lot to cover.”

The event comes a month after Apple unveiled two new versions of the iPhone 5 in a variety of new colours. The new invitations added to speculation that the new iPads would also feature a range of new colours, possibly in the form of covers for the tablet computers.

New iOS software has features to discover

Posted by admin under iPhone News on Wednesday Sep 18, 2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California (AP) – The changes to Apple’s iOS software became apparent as I drove to the headquarters of the company’s rival, Google. As I navigated using Apple’s mapping app, I noticed one of my favorite attributes was missing: the directions for each next turn presented in green boxes that resemble highway signs.

Many of the changes in Apple’s operating system for mobile devices are cosmetic. Gone are three-dimensional icons that mimic real-world counterparts, such as a magazine rack for the Newsstand app. They are replaced by larger, two-dimensional icons sporting abstract designs and pastel colors. Apple also extended that new look to many of its apps. In Maps, the green boxes are replaced with solid white across the top.

iPhone 5C and 5S vs. older iPhone 5

Posted by admin under iPhone News on Wednesday Sep 18, 2013

By ANICK JESDANUN, AP Technology writer

CUPERTINO, California (AP) – Apple’s new iPhone 5S and 5C and last year’s iPhone 5 are alike in many ways.

All three phones have a touch screen measuring 4 inches (10 centimeters) diagonally, with a resolution of 326 pixels per inch. That pixel density is better than Apple’s iPads, though not as good as Samsung Electronic Co.’s flagship Galaxy S4. The iPhone 5 and 5S are identical in size and weight, while the 5C is slightly bigger and heavier. The iPhone 5S is identical in price to what the iPhone 5 cost when it was introduced last year, while the 5C is $100 cheaper.
