Apple’s enterprise strategy begins to take shape

Apple’s enterprise strategy begins to take shape When Apple announced its partnership with GE this week, it would have been easy to dismiss it as another random collaboration from a company people don’t generally associate with the enterprise. After all, Apple killed off their enterprise server product years ago. You might rightly ask, what exactly do they have to do with the enterprise these days? But if you consider the notion of digital transformation and what it really means, a big part of it is the mobile experience. Then if…

Report suggests Face ID camera tech will be in next iPad Pro models

Report suggests Face ID camera tech will be in next iPad Pro models The tech which enables the iPhone X’s new Face ID feature may be coming to the 2018 iPad Pro line, a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests. The note sent to investors and reported by MacRumors and 9to5mac suggests that the TrueDepth Camera system will be available on all of the “high-end” iOS devices by year’s end. This is more of an inevitability than anything. There’s a lot less immediate external pressure to build an edge-to-edge…

New Apple videos explain how iOS 11 and its multi-tasking features work on the iPad

New Apple videos explain how iOS 11 and its multi-tasking features work on the iPad iOS 11, the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system, is quite the game-changer for iPad owners. We wrote that the software effectively turns an iPad into a mobile computer through a number of new features that go beyond previous limits with a focus on multi-tasking. The new iOS is currently in beta, but when it is released to all it will bring a very different experience to millions of Apple customers. So it’s helpful that Apple…

Apple sees a big jump in iPad unit sales

Apple sees a big jump in iPad unit sales Apple’s third-quarter earnings are out and the company was quick to highlight its solid iPhone sales and burgeoning services segment. The big surprise, however, was the 15 percent year-over-year increase in iPad unit sales, which seems to contradict the dominating narrative that the company’s iPad segment was losing steam due to lengthier upgrade cycles. The 15 percent increase brings unit sales for Q3 to 11.4 million on revenue of $4.96 billion. Interestingly, while iPhone unit sales declined 19 percent quarter over…

Sling Studio makes multi-camera video production so damn easy

Sling Studio makes multi-camera video production so damn easy I like making videos — it’s what I do. So when I come across a product that makes my life easier I get pretty excited and pumped about it and decide to film a review. The Sling Studio is a fun little piece of hardware that fits all the fun of a multi-camera video production into my backpack… and that is no joke. I was very impressed with all the power and efficiency that was packed into this little studio-on-the-go. I…

Apple aims to get an iPad in the hands of every hospital patient

Apple aims to get an iPad in the hands of every hospital patient Apple has made great strides in health in the last few years and if it gets its way, there will be an iPad in the hands of every hospital patient. It’s already started with a smattering of hospitals around the U.S. including Jacobs Medical Center at UC San Diego, MetroSouth Medical Center in Chicago and about a year ago at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. Earlier this week, I went down to L.A. to take a tour of…

iOS 11 turns your iPad into a completely different machine

iOS 11 turns your iPad into a completely different machine iOS has been around for 10 years. It’s hard to keep innovating after so many iterations. And yet, in many ways, iOS 11 feels like a completely new beast on the iPad. For the first time in years, it feels like Apple is taking risks with its operating system update. I’ve been playing with a beta version of iOS 11 on a 10.5-inch iPad Pro for the past few weeks. While the final version of iOS 11 is not coming…

The iPad mini isn’t receiving any update

The iPad mini isn’t receiving any update The writing is on the wall. The iPad mini 4 is probably going to be the last iPad mini ever. Apple just announced iPad updates during its WWDC keynote. Both the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models are receiving major updates. In the meantime, the iPad mini feels like the neglected device in the iPad lineup, and it’s now probably on life support. If you want a cheaper iPad, you can buy a 9.7-inch iPad for $320. It’s cheaper than the $399 iPad…

Apple pays off its future-of-computing promise with iPad Pro

Apple pays off its future-of-computing promise with iPad Pro After playing with the new iPad Pro 10.5″ for a few days, I am convinced that it’s fairly impossible to do a detailed review of it in its current state. Not because there is some sort of flaw, but because it was clearly designed top to bottom as an empty vessel in which to pour iOS 11. Every feature, every hardware advancement, every piece of understated technical acrobatics is in the service of making Apple’s next-generation software shine. I know this…
