Adobe’s New Painting App Is a Tantalising Sneak Peek at the iPad’s Future

First announced last October, Adobe Fresco is the company’s next-generation painting and illustration app for tablets that harnesses AI smarts to allow artists to work with digital tools that behave and feel like traditional brushes and paints. We got an early look at the app before its release later this year, and while it’s missing a few key features, it’s still an exciting look at the next big evolution of mobile devices like the iPad.

Everything Apple Revealed About macOS at WWDC

With Apple Music, Apple TV+ (and other streaming services) making owning gigabytes of MP3 and video files a thing of the past, iTunes, the iOS desktop companion app that’s been around since the iPod first debuted, is finally dead.

Your iPad Can be Used as Your Mac’s Second Display

There's a lot you can do with a tablet, but not enough that it's worth using instead of the laptop or desktop that's sitting in front of you. So why couldn't you use that big-ass device as an extra display? Third party apps have supported it for a while, but now Apple's doing it officially. Read More >>

iPadOS: A First Look at Apple’s Vision for the Future of Its Tablets

Apple has been trying to market the iPad as a budget solution for people who want an Apple laptop, but the iPad has never really held up to that promise. Sure it’s a great device that’s fast enough for general tasks like web browsing, light enough to take anywhere, and long-lasting enough to support you through a few hours of movies sans plug. Yet inevitably we reach for a “real” computer when the work is demanding enough. Apple clearly wants that to change, if today’s news is anything to go by. Read More >>

Apple Q2 2019 Earnings Show iPhone Business Stalling, But Services Expanding at Rapid Pace

Everyone has a theory: Maybe it’s that iPhones are too expensive. Maybe it’s that Apple’s quality control seems weaker, or that they’ve alienated consumers by removing consumer-friendly features like the headphone jack. Maybe it’s that iPhones keep getting more and more expensive at a time when consumers have realised the price premium isn’t worth it in an age of excellent mid-range phones, or just that consumers are upgrading less often. Maybe it’s all of these, or something else entirely. Read More >>

Why Would Anyone Buy an iPad Mini in 2019

The iPad Mini is not the best tablet Apple makes (that’s the 11-inch iPad Pro). It’s not the good enough tablet either (that’s the iPad Air). It’s the awkward one. A little too small, but a little too big, and demanding a fairly radical change to how you operate a tablet if you’ve been using any other iPad before. But boy, after a week of using the newly refreshed Mini, I’m still finding it awfully damn appealing. The iPad Mini is the true content consumption queen. Read More >>
