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!

Since I got my iPad Pro 9.7″, my iPad Mini3 has been relatively unused. As in, completely unused. The Pro has replaced it in all things, to the point where when I picked it up yesterday, the little red notification¬†illustrating app updates from the App Store was in triple figures.

A sure sign that I haven’t been using it.

Sure, it’s regularly been placed on the charger to keep it full of juice, but that’s it. I almost felt guilty for abandoning this little, previously-loved, iPad.¬†So I decided to do something about it.

My new iPad Pro 9.7″ is out for delivery. It’s arriving some time tomorrow and, as we all know, Apple device days can drag horribly. On the one hand, if it arrives early in the morning, it’ll be difficult concentrate on work while that pristine white box lies next to me on the desk. I’ll […]

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 […]

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. […]

We’re now just over 24 hours from Apple’s now-confirmed event. And while we know there’s definitely something they want to share with us, it’s not exactly clear what that this. 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, […]

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 […]
