Apple to Offer Surface-Style Keyboard Cover for iPad?



Jamie Ryan, Apple’s former employee, says there’s a Surface-style keyboard cover in the works. Ryan has reportedly been speaking to some people at the company, who shared with him the information about prototypes.

It’s not clear whether the process is far enough along to make this Tuesdays event but they did say a few different styles had been in testing for a while. This would certainly allow Apple to differentiate the larger iPad from its little brother and market it as the more ’pro’ of the 2. Apple already sells a Bluetooth keyboard that functions perfectly with the iPad but it’s not quite as integrated as Microsofts offering, requiring a lot more bag space.

It is interesting whether Apple will show us the new iPad case on Tuesday or not.

USA Today claimed on Thursday that iOS 7 is the "most troubled" if to compare it with older versions of the Apple’s mobile operating system.

Sharp to Start Production of IGZO LCD Panels for Smartphones Soon



Sharp will start production of IGZO displays for smartphones at its Kameyama Plant Number 2 by the end of this year. This means that the next generation iPhone as well as the iPad and iPad mini may get a new and a lot better screen - especially since Sharp says it will continue working on IGZO technology in order to use it in production of displays for tablets, notebooks and other portable devices.

Here’s what DigiTimes reports:

Using 8G glass substrates, Sharp will be the first company in the world to achieve commercial production of high-definition LCD panels for smartphones, the company said. The highly efficient production levels achievable with 8G glass substrates will be made possible by an optimized production process as well as by IGZO technology's ability to enable smaller thin-film transistors and increased light transmittance.

Photo Showing iPad 5 with Touch ID Sensor Leaked Online



A photo that depicts the upcoming iPad 5’s front panel featuring something very similar to the Touch ID fingerprint sensor has leaked online. Whether the image is legitimate is still unclear; anyway, the device on it looks pretty much like the new full-sized iPad should look like - especially if to take into consideration previous leaks and the experts’ predictions.

The photo has been first spotted on CTech - a website that yesterday published a couple of photos showing the gold iPad 5 and iPad mini rear panel.
