The iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 have been officially announced, and the big question in everyone’s mind right now is: how do they compare to the original iPad Air and the iPad mini 2 with Retina display from last year?

As expected, the news has finally come in from Cupertino; Apple has announced the longed-awaited iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. Better yet, Apple has announced the starting prices for the devices at $499 and $399, respectively. You can read all about the two most coveted devices of the year as we have covered them in separate posts, but here’s another news to break: The original iPad mini 2 and iPad Air are going to be sticking around at a $100 lesser price tag than they originally were, starting at $299 and $399, respectively. But wait, there’s more, the iPad mini 1 is also here to stay, and now carries a price tag of just $249 for the base model.

While all the attention from Apple’s big event today is quite rightly falling on that rather impressive Retina 5K iMac as well as the updated iPad Air, there is one particular feature of Apple’s new tablet that seems to have almost been squeezed in under the radar. Apple made no mention of it during the announcement of the iPad Air 2 and it was instead left to languish amongst all of the other features laid out on the product’s Web page.

Now that the big Apple event of the month is out of the way and the dust has begun to settle on what the company has announced, the online Apple Store has now been updated with all kinds of new wares. Not all of the new additions are products that were announced on-stage either, with Apple making new accessories for its brand new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 available to buy.

Apple’s today’s special event has been expected to carry a number of announcements, including those of the new iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 3, and all the changes and innovations to the Mac lineup. Then there have been announcements like updates to the iWork suite, availability of the iCloud Drive and the OS X Yosemite final version, among various others. Well, significant one among those concerned the public release of iOS 8.1 – the first major update to Apple’s iOS 8.

As expected, Apple has just taken the wraps off the iPad mini 3, and whilst the smaller of Apple’s tablets hasn’t been given all that much attention during the build-up to today’s events, we can now sit back and assess some of the many new features that have been bundled into this refresh. There is, as also suspected, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and with a number of other quirks to be enjoyed, we’ve got the full run-down after the leap.

The second-generation iPad Air, which is now the sixth 9.7-inch slate that Apple has brought to the fore, has finally been unveiled, and as well as Touch ID, the faster processor and all of the other bells and whistles that we’ve long presumed would be present, there are a few surprises thrown in for good measure. Full details can be seen below.

Reddit’s popularity as a massively successful social network and information sharing platform is beyond question, and the service has only grown since the day it started. Even though Reddit isn’t a social network as Facebook and Twitter are, users addicted to /r are in millions, and they continue to grow by the day. The one area where Reddit seems to have struggled was its presence across mobile platforms, especially through the lack of quality mobile apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone etc. Recently, we saw the executive team behind Reddit focusing on that area, with improved official apps, more focus on mobile customers etc. Today’s move is just that; one more step towards increasing Reddit’s mobile user base, and the company has aimed to achieve that by acquiring the popular iOS app Alien Blue.

Here we are again, with just a few hours into the run-up to the October 16th Apple event. Apple has chosen to go with a slightly low key venue this time around, holding the event at the Apple Campus in Cupertino, California. Earlier the fruit company’s glitzy iPhone 6/6 Plus event in September, was held at the Flint Center that could seat 2,405 people, and was concluded with a performance by U2.

So the iOS 8.1 User Guide just went up on Apple’s iTunes Store, and someone at Apple is sheepishly looking around, hoping no one noticed. Apple seems to have spilled the beans about the heavily rumored iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3, which we can finally confirm to be announced tomorrow. Earlier there were onslaughts of iPad rumors and there were even concerns that Apple may not announce the much awaited tablets, in all this confusion. So here you have it folks, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 are all set to make an appearance on stage tomorrow.

It’s the period of time when educated speculation, wild conjecture and insane fantasy starts to get thrown around pertaining to what we could actually see being introduced during Apple’s event tomorrow. The invitation headline of “It’s been way too long” doesn’t really give much away, but needless to say that hasn’t stopped even the deepest, darkest corners of the Internet from chipping in with its two cents worth. As we try to separate the “potentials” from the “no ways” we once again take guidance from KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a proven track record of predicting what lies ahead and believes that tomorrow’s event could be heavily iMac centric.

Not too long ago, we covered how Facebook will be bringing Stickers to its comments system. Well, finally, someone in Facebook managed to push out an update to Facebook, which allows you to express your emotional glory in the comments section for all those pillow fight, status’, pictures, videos etc., using Stickers.

On the other side of the world, where we often meet ourselves, is an array of mobile app icons that can be brutally honest to you if you give it a chance. Icons help you quickly identify one app from the other, but what tells you what that app is really meant for, or what their existence means to you and your mobile device. As I eerily tread borderline ‘cuckoo’, I’ll ask you if you believe in any stereotype characterizations for some of the famous smartphone apps out there.

With just a few days left to the unveiling of the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 at Apple’s event, well-known designer Martin Hajek has released rendered images of the new tablets from the Cupertino giant. Hajek’s images are an attempt to showcase what the iPad Air 2 and mini 3 could look like if Apple decides to take design cues from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Unlike the previous generations, the new iPhones have taken an altogether different design route with curved edges, plastic bands dividing the rear aluminum backplate into three regions, and an overall slimmer shell. It would be the first time that Apple launched a phone with a protruding camera as well. Hajek takes these design elements and shows us what unsurprisingly looks like a stretched iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

Within iOS 8, the typing experience has improved dramatically. Not only has Apple now made it possible for users to download their favorite third-party offerings like Fleksy, Swype and SwiftKey, but the native keyboard is also far superior to the lackluster native arrangement that users have endured for the past seven years. The autocomplete feature, in particular, will estimate the next word in your sentence, writing out your body of text through a combination of guesswork and learned algorithms. But while this is useful for your everyday typist, one YouTuber has taken things a step further by allowing the stock feature to essentially write its own song. The result is pretty hilarious, and below, you can check it out.

It wouldn’t be too harsh to say that iOS 8 hasn’t been Apple’s finest hour. Whether it be the botched launch of Health or the fact that Apple managed to push an update out that stopped a large number of iPhones from talking to the cellular network, someone inside the firm that could once do no wrong is probably sweating a little more than usual.

Here’s how you can fix the most common iOS 8 related problems and issues running on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
