An iPad Productivity Boost

The only gadget I actually bought when we were in Japan in October was the Smart Keyboard for my 9.7" iPad Pro. If you don't read the remainder of this post, in terms of a review, I can only express my regret for not having picked one up months ago! But I thought Japan was ...

Early days with the Apple Pencil

I'm not ashamed to say I spent an inordinate amount of my Saturday evening playing with a pencil. The new Apple Pencil, combined with my iPad Pro 9.7". I know this word gets thrown around a lot when discussing Apple's products, but it's really 'magical'. In that I can't understand how it works so well. ...

9.7″ iPad Pro ordered

So I ordered one of the new 9.7" iPad Pro's this morning. This week's Apple event announcing them included everything I'd been hoping for, so it was a bit of a no-brainer. Like the iPad Pro, but with a smaller form factor. Better chip, quad speakers, Apple Pencil functionality etc etc.  I went for the ...

Apple’s new product announcements

Because I'm holidaying in South Beach at the moment, I was more interested in enjoying the sun than catching every detail of today's product announcements from Apple. I did, however, follow the event On my iPhone, via the live feed provided by The Verge. And it didn't disappoint! Finally: new Apple Watch bands!! Just kidding. ...

But this being Apple, we're not short of a few rumours... For a start, it sounds like there's going to be a new 4" iPhone, ...

An iPad Pro Mini?

Contrary to the chatter from various naysayers (you know you are!), I still haven't bought an iPad Pro. I actually saw one in the wild the other day, when one of the students I was teaching pulled one out of her bag. She took notes on it throughout the seminar, but I couldn't help noticing ...

I touched an iPad Pro (and I liked it)

Despite everything I wrote on Friday, I found myself holding an iPad Pro in my own two hands yesterday afternoon. I had reserved an adaptor for my Macbook at a local Dixons and amazingly, when I went to collect the adaptor, they had an iPad Pro in stock. Surely just touching one couldn't hurt? The ...

iPad Pro… maybe?

The iPad Pro goes on sale in the UK today and I'm really not that interested in getting one. I know, I know. We've been here before. But I've thought about it long and hard since it was announced and I can't think how it would be of use to me. Aside from looking beautiful ...
