It ha already been a pretty huge day as far as app updates were concerned when we settled down not that long ago, thinking that it may finally be time to take a deep breath and reflect on that day's going-ons. Alas, someone at Apple clearly had better ideas though, because not long ago they flipped the switch which sees yet more of the company's first-party iOS apps updated.
At this time of year, Apple makes many changes to its software products as the new hardware continues to filter through, and along with today's big announcements, it looks as though a small, but notable update to iTunes is also in the pipeline. iTunes 11.1.2 should be available very, very soon to everyone around the globe, and with support for OS X Mavericks, bug fixes and enhanced language support, will definitely be worth picking up.
Apple cannot resist coming through with the confusing names, and now we find ourselves with the iPad 2, fifth-gen iPad Air, iPad mini, and the new iPad mini with Retina display. With so many options both old and new, allied to Apple's almost arbitrary naming patterns, it may be a rather confusing state of affairs, so here, we take a close look at the four Apple tablets including features, specs and prices.
The new and updated iWork and iLife apps for iOS and Mac are now live in the App Store and Mac App Store, respectively, and are now available to download. More details and direct download links can be found right here.
Apple’s newest hardware is here for a lot of device lineups, including the iPad, which has seen the launch of the new iPad Air and the second gen iPad mini with Retina display. The new devices are all shiny and cool, boasting the latest in hardware and software both, but that doesn’t mean we can forget the old ones just yet. Although the iPad 2 and iPad mini are rather old now, they’re still continuing, albeit at a lower cost for the first-gen iPad mini. The iPad 2 will continue to sell for a price of $399, while the first-gen iPad mini will continue to retail at a new starting price point of $299.
After iOS 7 and iOS 7.0.2, official direct download links for iOS 7.0.3 are live for iPhone 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, 4, iPad, iPad mini and iPod touch fifth-generation.
Some doubted whether Apple would indeed come through with the iPad mini 2 this year, but thanks to today's official announcement at the special press event, we now know this to be true. As well as packing a wonderfully-crisp Retina panel, the smaller of the two Apple slates also includes quite a few features we're more than familiar with, including the A7 processor of the iPhone 5s!
If techies ruled national holidays, today would be known as "iPad day," and for a good while now, we've been looking forward to the grand unveiling of the fifth-generation Cupertino slate. In today's announcement, the fruit company has not disappointed, and as well as bringing an entirely revamped, thinner and lighter overall design, the device is also more compact, boasts some tidy new display tech, and a brand new name: iPad Air.
With all of the recent Apple related attention focused firmly on iOS 7 and the new iPhone hardware, it may come as a shock to a lot of people that the Cupertino based company took the liberty to announce a new range of Retina MacBook Pro notebooks at their iPad media event. We have all the details right here.
The iPad media event has just kicked off and Craig Federighi has announced the final availability of OS X Mavericks along with its pricing structure. More details can be found right here.
