New iPad Mini and AIR!

Apple Unveils Brand New Upgrades For The iPad Mini and Air

Apple has now updated its oldest products, the iPad Mini and Air. These devices were long overdue an upgrade and most people though that Apple simply forgot about portable devices in favour of just pushing iPhones and wearable technology.

However we now know that there will be new devices for sale very soon. Both of these brand new products will be brought up to date with the latest iPhones mainly the iPhone XS and iPad Pro.

Apple will be including the powerful A12 Bionic processor which has been quoted as being three times faster than the previous processor used in iPads way back in 2014. The iPad Mini will keep the same 7.9 inch screen that was featured in the last iPad Mini and the design won’t be changed too much due to positive reviews from the previous products size and design.

However the iPad Airs screen has increased in size from a 9.7 to 10.5inch screen, this makes one of the largest iPad screens available and it’s definitely significant increase in size.

The home button will return along with the Touch ID that many people know and love. This will be a big selling point since a lot of people didn’t want to use those features on the new products. Especially after they got used to how they work and function. So that’s a big positive for Apple even though it seems the only upgrades we will be getting are internal component upgrades.

The same chargers

The new iPads will also need the old lightning ports to charge instead of the new cross-platform USB chargers we see with the new iPhones. Again this a great idea because most people bought many other chargers for their old iPads and now they can keep the same chargers as back-up without having to purchase even more.

Even the screen quality itself has been upgraded with these new iPads. Apple has decided to include the True Tone Colour and allow support for the P3 colour system. These options were not featured on the older iPads. The older Apple stylus will also work on the devices but only the older ones. The new ones unfortunately don’t work so if it charges by the lightening port then it will definitely work.

Apples senior vice president Phil Schiller announced the following “Today the iPad family takes two big leaps forward with an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Air that brings high-end size, features and performance at a breakthrough price, and a major upgrade to the 7.9-inch iPad mini, which also brings Apple Pencil, Retina display and the A12 Bionic chip to the many customers that love its compact size.”

Cameras and storage

If you are wondering about the camera then both the devices have 8 mega-pixel rear cameras with a 7 mega-pixel front camera. They are also compatible with the Smart keyboard Apple recently released. Along with 64GB and 256GB storage options and 4G connectivity which soon will be upgraded to 5G but 4G is still completely fine and works incredible well for anybody.

Apple has cancelled its long awaited AirPower charging pad

airpower cancelled

Have you been waiting for Apple to release it’s “revolutionary” wireless charging pad? Well it’s official, AirPower has been cancelled and will never be released.

Apple has cancelled its AirPower wireless charger, saying that it was nigh on impossible for the company to achieve it’s usual “high standards” for the product, as announced via TechCrunch.

“After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project. We apologise to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward,” said Apple SVP of hardware engineering Dan Riccio in a statement.

Apple first announced the AirPower charging system as part of its iPhone X event way back in September 2017. Apple revealed that wireless charging was going to be one of the new features of the iPhone X and the AirPower was going to be built to compliment that feature. Apple originally said the product would be released in 2018 but then nothing more was really heard about the product for a long time.

Apple claimed that the AirPower charging pad would be able to charge 3 devices at once – and was being aimed at those who owned an iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch. Apple touted the AirPower system as having special features such as a full charging area eliminating the need to find a sweet spot and a software overlay for the iPhone that would allows users to see how much power and charge time all 3 devices had or required.

Unfortunately Apple just couldn’t get it right. There have many reports citing issues such as overheating – due the charging pad having multiple charge coils – among others. But for a long time customers have been waiting and expecting the AirPower charging pad to be released. The charging pad had been mentioned in some Apple literature that comes with products such as the AirPods prior to the announcement back in 2017 and the Wall Street Journal even reported that the product had been green lit and gone into mass production. But alas, the product has now been officially cancelled and Apple owners will never get the AirPower Charging Pad.
