Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

This week is pretty massive for Apple, as it sees the release of the long-awaited iPhone 6 in 4.7in and 5.5in (“Plus”) flavours. That’s tomorrow.

In the meantime, the Californians have rolled out their latest software update for iPhones, iPads and the latest iPod touch. Say hello to iOS 8.

New iPad Smart Cover: notification methods detailed in patent filing

New iPad Smart Cover: notification methods detailed in patent filing

Lewis Curdie  Jun. 16 at 14:00

If you own an iPad, chances are you’re protecting the display with some sort of Smart Cover, though the only thing particularly “smart” about the official cover – in its current incarnation – is its ability to automatically wake/lock the display as you open/close it.

According to a new patent sighting, the Smart Cover could get a whole lot smarter, with various potential notification methods detailed.

Apple’s iPad trade-in programme moves in-store

Apple’s iPad trade-in programme moves in-store

Lewis Curdie  May. 20 at 14:00

We iPad users in the UK have long been able to send off our iTablets for cash via the official Apple site, but you’ll now be able to get a spot of face-to-face lovin’, which, let’s face it, is the best kind of lovin’.

Yes, the Apple iPad trade-in programme, formerly exclusively found online, is now expanding to stores, so you’ll be able to ask some guy or gal in a blue t-shirt how many bucks you can get for your old tablet.

iOS 8 to introduce split-screen multitasking for iPads?

iOS 8 to introduce split-screen multitasking for iPads?

Lewis Curdie  May. 14 at 14:00

The evolution of iOS over the years has been relatively slow, with a dash of spice here and a sprinkle of salt there. Scanning my aging memory banks, one of the biggest changes in recent years has been the addition of the Command Center panel.

But, if the latest rumours are to be believed, iPad users in particular could be in for a major new feature with the introduction of iOS 8, specifically: split-screen multitasking. Ooh baby.

Microsoft Office for iPad finally arrives, £80 annually for the full shebang

Phew, it’s only been – what? – four years since the late Steve Jobs unveiled the first-generation iPad, so one could hardly accuse Microsoft of rushing out its Office for iPad suite.

Microsoft Office for iPad arrives in three standalone apps, but to do anything other than view documents, you’ll need an Office 365 subscription, and it ain’t cheap.

Microsoft Office for iPad to arrive before new Windows version?

Microsoft Office for iPad to arrive before new Windows version?

Lewis Curdie  Feb. 15 at 14:00

The iPad is widely credited with kickstarting the whole tablet craze, and obviously it makes perfect sense that in the four years since its release, we haven’t seen an official Microsoft Office app. Smooth.

We’re told that it’s still very much in the works, but the surprising thing here is that Microsoft Office for iPad will supposedly touch down before the new touch-focused version for Windows.

iOS 7.1 features detailed ahead of consumer release

iOS 7.1 features detailed ahead of consumer release

Lewis Curdie  Nov. 19, 2013 at 12:00

iOS 7 celebrates its two-month anniversary this week, and in its relatively short existence we’ve had a handful of minor updates in the form of iOS 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, and most recently 7.0.4.

The next “major” version (if we can call it that) is iOS 7.1, and with the beta version now being served to developers, it’s probably safe to say it’ll hit compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touches everywhere pretty soon.

Might Apple’s 12.9in iPad be a Surface-style hybrid with keyboard dock?

Might Apple’s 12.9in iPad be a Surface-style hybrid with keyboard dock?

We’ve been hearing a fair bit about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 12.2 plans over the past few days, but here we turn our attention back to the South Koreans’ best mates (ahem), California’s Apple.

A larger iPad – or “iPad Maxi” – has been rumoured for some time now, and again we’re told that Apple is prepping a 12.9in version of the Tablet That Started it All.

Microsoft Office for iPad confirmed, but don’t hold your breath

Microsoft Office for iPad confirmed, but don’t hold your breath

It’s incredible to think that the iPad is now three-and-a-half years old, and still there’s no Microsoft Office app. All those millions of potential customers, but… nope, no dice.

Microsoft Office for the iPad has again been confirmed, but it sounds like it might still be some way off.
