Apple announces its eighth annual iTunes Festival event that will take place in London at the legendary Roadhouse. The event will last for 30-days and will run through the month of September.
Apples WWDC event we will be held on Monday, June 2-6 and will take place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. It seems that Apple has started making preparations and has put up colorful WWDC 2014 posters.
You’ve heard all the rumors, and now Apple has finally confirmed the details of its next iPad launch event. It will take place on Wednesday, March 7th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. The company is keeping things suitably vague beyond that, of course, promising only that it has “something you really have to see. And touch.” You can be sure we’ll be there live to find out exactly what that might be.
Looking at the image in the invite, it appears that Apple is already giving us a sneak peak at the iPad 3’s Retina Display.
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, get that Home button on your iPhone 4S pressed down and give Siri the order to clear your diary for Wednesday March 7th, as previously reliable sources seem to think that it is the day when Apple intends to hold a keynote event and announce the much anticipated iPad 3. If the sources are correct, then that will put it pretty much exactly a year since the current iPad 2 model was announced.
Apple usually announces a new iPad every Feb-March and we are once again in that period of time when all sorts of “inside sources” say that they’ve got a solid month/day for when the next iPad will release.
According to a new report published today, Apple will be unveiling the iPad 3 in the first week of March. Details after the jump!
It’s not an iPhone mini or anything, but it’s the first iPhone with Siri. And that has to count for something, right? Right? While it’s no iPhone 5 (not even close, really), the iPhone 4S is far from being “last year’s iPhone,” and the greatly enhanced camera, bolstered A5 dual-core processor and inbuilt voice command should provide plenty of reason for folks to upgrade if they’re near the end of their contract. Furthermore, having the option on Sprint — despite Apple almost announcing it as an afterthought — is bound to make folks already entrenched on the Now Network think twice about what their next phone will come upgrade time.
The Loop reports that Apple has finally confirmed the long-awaited media event. The wait will soon be over: Apple has scheduled a press conference next Tuesday, October 4. The event will take place at Apple’s home turf, its Cupertino campus in California at 10am PT, as rumored. If an email invitation is any indication, this will definitely be an iPhone-focused media event. AllThingsD has it on good authority that Apple CEO Tim Cook will deliver the presentation, a first for Cook in his new CEO role.
We have yet to receive official word on this, but All Things Digital is reporting today that Apple’s next big media event will be held on October 4th, where freshly minted CEO Tim Cook is expected to unveil the iPhone 5. Sources close to the situation say Cook will be the main presenter at the event, with execs Phil Schiller, Scott Forstall and Eddy Cue playing supporting roles. This would mark the first time that Cook has actually led an Apple event, adding an extra wrinkle of significance to an already highly anticipated occasion. The site’s sources went on to say that the next-gen iPhone will be available for purchase “within a few weeks” of the announcement, though All Things Digital acknowledges that the exact date of its unveiling is still subject to change. As always, we’ll be sure to keep you posted as soon as we hear more.
Well there you have it folks — the absurdly thin new iPad 2. We just got our hands all over the next greatest tablet from Apple and it’s… very much the same, save for that new body. There’s no question that the industrial design is top notch, and we did notice some speedier behavior when jumping around — but the core OS remains unchanged, so this won’t be a major shock. We’re spending more time with the device and getting impressions.
Update: Okay, we’ve had a chance to play around the with iPad 2 some more, and here are our big takeaways from the experience.
Apple has just made its second-generation iPad official! It features a dual-core A5 chip and, finally, cameras, both front and rear! The new CPU is said to be up to twice as fast, with graphics performance up to nine times better than on the original iPad, while power requirements have been kept the same. Battery life is, consequently, unaltered, with Apple promising 10 hours. Pricing, too, has been left unchanged, starting at $499. The new tablet will come with an HDMI output capable of 1080p — which will set you back $39 for the requisite dongle — but we’ve yet to hear any rumblings of Thunderbolt connectivity. There’s an enlarged speaker grille on the back, as expected, though resolution has not budged from the original iPad’s 1024 x 768.
