Apple finally updated the 9.7″ iPad and for some reason named it iPad Pro.

The new iPad gets many of the Pro features from its bigger brother. Apple Pencil support and the Pro display are on board but there are some new features as well. For example the new Pro has the least reflective display glass on any iPad. It also packs a 12MP camera with 4K video recording for those who like to be that guy.

Pricing starts at $599 for the 32GB model and goes all the way up to $899 for the 256GB model. The iPad Pro will be available on March 31st and preorders start on March 24th. The new Pro will be available in four colors, grey, silver, gold and rose gold.

iPad Pro is now available

Apple has finally launched the iPad Pro. The first reviews are out and the device gets a decent welcome. 

After the release at the iPhone event, the iPad Pro finally launched yesterday. The 12.9″ iPad is available in three configurations, 32GB WiFi ($799), 128GB WiFi ($949) and 128GB WiFi + Cellular ($1079). Color options are the usual Space Gray, Silver and Gold.

The first reviews are mostly positive. The best part is the 12.9″ 2732 x 2048p display. Also the performance is quite spectacular easily beating the 12″ MacBook. The new speakers are said to be OK but the large volume chambers also make the device vibrate on high volume. The Apple Pencil and the keyboard case are not available at launch but the few that have got their hands on the pen have said that the latency is a real issue. iFixit has already gave the iPad Pro their teardown treatment and with it, a 3/10 Repairability Score.

Apple has made great job marketing the iPad Pro as a productivity tablet but the reviews are not agreeing too much. The iOS is not just made for productivity and many reviewers would rather have the OS X running in the huge iPad especially as the performance is not an issue.

iPad Pro is a great device but who needs one? That’s a question we want an answer. Probably it will still sell like crazy as the holidays are coming.

IPhone 6S RAM and Battery Size Confirmed

Apple’s 3D Touch video reveals the reduced battery capacity of the iPhone 6S. Information from Adobe confirms 2GB RAM for iPhones and 4GB for iPad Pro.

As usual, Apple didn’t tell a whole lot of exact specifications of their devices at the September 9 keynote. Luckily different sources are providing information about the specs before the devices have even come available for customers.

Apple’s official 3D Touch video reveals the battery capacity of the iPhone 6S. The added haptic feedback module reduces the physical size of the battery. The technology hasn’t improved enough to keep the battery capacity and the new battery is 95mAh smaller than the one in the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6S now has a 1715mAh battery compared to a 1810mAh juicer in the last year model. Most likely the iPhone 6S Plus also has smaller battery than the iPhone 6 Plus.

An Adobe worker has revealed that the new iPhones have 2GB of RAM. The information is from an internal Apple website and it’s been shared to Reddit. Apple didn’t mention the RAM size in the keynote but it’s understandable because the 100% growth to last year would have looked hideous as everyone knows that the iPhone 6 and 6S had 1GB of RAM.

Adobe has also revealed the amount of RAM in the iPad Pro. The company released an article introducing the features of the new iPad Pro and confirmed the 4GB of RAM. The statement has now been modified but the link is still down below.

The iPhone 6S is the third flagship this year to reduce the battery capacity compared to last year. The development is alarming because most users want more battery life. Most the people commenting online demand better battery life even in the cost of a thicker phone. Still smartphone manufacturers are making the devices thinner. Motorola has probably understood this with their Moto X Play and the upcoming Moto X Force. Hopefully more manufacturers are taking the note.

Apple finally got the second gigabyte of RAM. Previously it’s been a struggle to even keep tabs loaded in the browser and still customer satisfactory has been ridiculously high. Next year the customer satisfactory percent might be over 100.
