Apple may use Tuesday’s “Hi, Speed” event to tell potential buyers of the new iPad Air when they can purchase the tablet, weeks after the company launched the model during its “Time Flies” event.

During the first “Time Flies” special event on September 15, Apple introduced a redesigned iPad Air, but aside from telling customers it would be available sometime in October, an exact date wasn’t offered during the presentation. With the second Apple event looming, it is suggested Apple may advise of when the tablet will actually go on sale.

According to serial leaker Jon Prosser on Twitter, Apple “will give you the launch date of iPad Air during the October 13th event.” Given the lack of date from Apple itself for its release, it seems plausible a public event will include an update on shipment dates.

Benchmarks leaked over the weekend gave us some insight into the performance of the A14 Bionic chip in the iPad Air that’s set to launch soon, and also revealed another tidbit — Apple’s newest tablet has 4GB RAM.


That’s 1GB over the prior-generation iPad Air that had an A12 Bionic processor, but less RAM than is available in the iPad Pro models. Apple’s 2020 ‌iPad Pro‌ models all have 6GB RAM.


With the jump in RAM and the impressive performance of the A14 chip, the new ‌iPad‌ Air is quite a bit speedier than the prior-generation model, plus it has the all-display design with Touch ID Home button, a first for Apple.

The A14 ‌iPad‌ Air Geekbench result that was leaked featured a single-core score of 1583 and a multi-core score of 4198, a solid improvement over the single-core score of 1112 and multi-core score of 2832 earned by the

“A big frustration with the Apple TV 4K is about to be history,” my colleague Chris Welch wrote, when we learned that Apple’s premiere set-top box would finally be able play 4K YouTube videos at their native resolution instead of being stuck at 1080p. These days, even a $40 dongle can do better than that.

But though Apple’s latest software updates did bring YouTube 4K to the Apple TV 4K, the frustrations aren’t necessarily over. It turns out you’re limited to watching 4K at 30fps, instead of a smooth 60 frames per second, and without the depth of color and contrast that High Dynamic Range (HDR) provides. That’s what 9to5Mac noticed yesterday, and we’ve confirmed with Google that — for now — Apple TV only supports 4K at 30fps with SDR content.

On the plus side, the latest iPhones and iPads do

This Battered iPad Fell Off A Car At 50mph

October 1, 2020 | technology | No Comments

An iPad mini that fell off a car travelling at high speed and smashed into pieces was – incredibly – still able to report its location to its owner.

Brand-protection specialist, Stuart Fuller, heard something hit the back of his car on a dark country lane and assumed it was a twig falling off a tree. Unluckily for Fuller, it was in fact the iPad mini that he’d accidentally left on top of his car.

Fuller, also chairman of non-league football club Lewes FC in England, was driving home from the club on Tuesday evening when he absent-mindedly left the iPad on top of the car before getting in. He managed to drive almost two miles up steep hills and around tight corners before the iPad mini finally fell off on the outskirts of Lewes.

At first,

Apple will use mini LED for the backlight of a “high-end MacBook” in late 2021, a report claims, a device that will follow after the launch of a 12.9-inch iPad Pro using the display technology in early 2021.

Osram Opto Semiconductors is reportedly going to become Apple’s second supplier of mini LED chips alongside Epistar, according to people familiar with the matter. The supply of mini LED chips from Osram will apparently start in 2021, with the chips intended for an updated MacBook model which would ship in the second half of 2021.

The industry sources of DigiTimes claim the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will use mini LED backlights, and will ship in early 2021, with each using over 10,000 mini LEDs. Epistar is thought to be ready to produce mini LEDs, with a production line for making blue-light LEDs modified for creating the smaller components during the third quarter

  • On Tuesday, Apple announced a slew of new products at its “Time Flies” event.
  • The new gadgets include the Apple Watch Series 6 and iPad Air 4.
  • Notably, Apple didn’t introduce a new iPhone at the event.

    For weeks, rumors had been flying around that this September, Apple wouldn’t follow tradition and unveil a new iPhone at its annual fall event, but would instead use the occasion to introduce updates to some of its second-tier products, like new iPads and Apple Watches.

    Tim Cook wasted no time confirming those theories during the “Time Flies” event, live-streamed from Apple Park in Cupertino, California.
