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.

The fifth generation iPad is expected to feature a thinner, lighter design akin to the iPad mini’s and an improved camera. It will run Apple’s new 64-bit A7 chip. The second-generation iPad mini will be upgraded with a retina display and also see the A7 incorporated into its innards.

Apple hasn’t neither confirmed, nor denied the information about new products’ launch yet.

iPhone 5s supplies will be low at launch



According to information provided by llThingsD, some sources close to mobile carriers claim that the stock of the iPhone 5s will be very low during its launch on Friday, September 20th.

Sources at multiple U.S. carriers said that the inventory of the new phone is significantly less than expected.

“We will have grotesquely unavailable inventory,” was how one carrier source put it.

Another carrier confirmed 'extremely disappointing shipments' from Apple. However, it was stated that the demand for the iPhone 5s is likely to be slightly lower than expected. It seems the bright colors of the low-cost iPhone 5c have captured eyes of customers.

The new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will start selling in stores on September 20th at 8:00 a.m.
