  • Reports suggest iPad mini 4 could get split-view app support, super-thin design

    When Apple debuted the iPad Air 2 in October last year, the device woefully overshadowed the humble iPad mini 3, which received a few minor updates over its predecessor. New reports, however, suggest that the iPad mini 4 could support split-view app functionality, suggesting a stronger focus on the tablet's performance going forward. Alleged leaks further suggest that the tablet will feature a super-thin design. If 9to5Mac's reports are anything to go by, an update for OS X El Capitan’s Safari 9 browser illustrates split-screen support for the iPad mini. Due to processing limitations of running two apps alongside each other simultaneously, the...

  • Apple’s 22 October event will be an iPad-focused affair

    Apple's 22 October iPad event is a big deal, depending on how much you care about Apple or not. You may have a memorial Steve Jobs 3D printed statue on your shelf and a stack of Apple products lining your desk. Or, you're just cash-flush and want the latest Apple hotness. Regardless, Apple is expected to launch new iPads, MacBooks and maybe even an iWatch at its upcoming event. That last gadget is what we call hopeful thinking. So what are the new iPads about then? Based on what we've previously written, the new lineup of iPads is going...

  • Mark your calendars: the next Apple iPad event is… 22 October

    In under two weeks, on 22 October, Apple will reveal a new iPad, according to AllThingsD.

Current Editorials also predicts that a second round of Apple product launches will take place in October, as the company looks to offer iPads with both higher resolutions and possibly, fingerprint readers as seen on the iPhone 5S. The new iPad should be the chief focus of the launch....

  • iPad Mini ‘likely’ launch with Samsung-made retina display

    The Wall Street Journal reports that there's "likely" to be an iPad Mini Retina currently in the mix of things with the display possibly made by Samsung. Other rumours suggest that Apple's working on a new and improved processor for the iPad Mini. "Apple is working with suppliers in Asia on its next iPad mini with a high-resolution 'retina' display, unlike the current iPad mini that comes with a lower-resolution screen, the people said," WSJ reported.

  • Unboxing of the iPad mini [Video]

    Michelle Atagana, Managing Editor, unboxes the long rumoured and awaited iPad mini. Probably one of the longest and most researched, and most rumoured, Apple products on our pages, the iPad mini created a truck load of debates about whether Apple will succeed with his device. It is its first device in a long while to enter an established market with the Kindle Fire and Nexus ruling the roost. Yet during the unboxing it certainly got us excited to try this baby iPad for a review.

  • iPad Mini hands-on review: Apple’s latest makes its debut

    Getting hands-on with the iPad mini could just as easily be called a "hand-on" since it's so easy to hold one-handed, and tap with the other. The first thing you notice when you pick it up is just how thin and light it is. With a smooth aluminum back, you feel like you could flip it like a coin, or spin it on your palm. It's as thin as a pencil and as light as a legal-size pad of paper - both nearly insignificant feeling objects. You can grip the iPad mini with a couple of fingers on the bottom,...
