First rumors about the 12-inch iPad Pro began to appear on the Internet last year. Since that time, we have seen lots of mockups, purported leaked parts and specifications for Apple’s larger tablet. This year, the rumors about the device started to become more and more plausible.
According to the new images showing something similar to the cases for the long-anticipated iPad, the suppliers are ramping up the production of such accessories. The quality of such products increases and this may be the indication of the official release of the tablet in the second half of this year. Below you may take a look at the photos of the cases shared by Sonny Dickson.
According to the latest report from Bloomberg, Samsung has earlier this month formed a separate team, which will be responsible for the development and manufacture of displays specifically for Apple’s iPads and MacBooks. Although Samsung is not the first company that has a special department dedicated to supplying Apple with various components (LG also has one), such a step shows that not only Apple is dependent from its main market rival.
It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s not waste our time and take a look at the articles I have selected for you right now.
We all know that the Apple Watch is a device, which can boast of some truly unique features, for example, Force Touch, Digital Crown and a bunch of health-tracking sensors. However, there’s one important feature added to the smartwatch specifically for those people, who always turn up late for various meetings. It is possible to adjust the time displayed on the watch face manually. This means you can use the old, but effective trick and move the displayed time ahead in order not to be late.
According to one interesting comment, which was originally found on the LG Display blog last week, Apple announced that it will release a brand new iMac with 8K display as soon as this year. Although the guys from Cupertino haven’t made any announcements connected either with the iMac, or its revamped screen, the rumor comes from a very reliable source. In case you don’t know, LG Display is one of Apple’s main suppliers, so I guess its representatives have access to the information about product releases. Anyway, I suggest you to take such a rumor with a few pinches of salt as its main purpose may lie in causing fuss around the new product.
Following the release of the fifth OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 beta, the guys from Cupertino on Tuesday made the fourth iOS 8.3 beta available for developers. This same beta is also available for the members of iOS public beta testing program. The release comes nearly two weeks after the release of the previous iOS 8.3 beta, which could boast of support of Google’s two-step verification, wireless CarPlay connectivity, new emojis and a number of other improvements.

The guys from Cupertino have recently released an update to their iPhoto app for Mac. This update is aimed at making it easier for OS X users to transfer their photo libraries to the new Photos app, which will become available for public later this year.
A wide number of MacBook Pro users have begun contacting Apple via company’s support forums in order to complain about the anti-reflective display coating, which is wearing off. The issue affects several MacBook Pro models sold between 2012 and 2014. As to the possible reasons for such awful problem, they include the contact between keyboard, trackpad and the screen as well as the usage of third-party cleaning solutions.
Aside from announcing the Apple Watch and the 12-inch MacBook, the guys from Cupertino have slightly improved the existing 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models and the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The good news is that these devices are available for purchase right now, so if you live in the USA and plan to buy one of the updated MacBook models, you can do this right now.
Immediately after the official announcement of the long-anticipated 12-inch Retina MacBook at the “Spring Forward” media event on Monday, first hands-on videos began to appear on the Internet showing how the new laptop looks and feels. Among all the clips I would like to point out the one published by TechnoBuffalo reporters as the one, which is the best in terms of length and the amount of information about the device it offers. You may take a look at this video below.
As you know, a couple of hours ago, at the “Spring Forward” media event, Apple announced its Apple Watch. Although the wearable device is not available for purchase yet, after the presentation, the reporters had an exclusive possibility to take a close look at the smartwatch and test its performance. Below you may take a look at the short hands on video showing the 42mm Apple Watch Sport tested by Jon Rettinger of TechnoBuffalo.
Apart from the Apple Watch, Apple has just announced another interesting device. As you might have guessed, this is the widely-rumored 12-inch Retina MacBook. Surprisingly, this laptop stays separately from the existing MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lineups: it’s just a MacBook.
Just as it was expected, Apple has officially announced the long-anticipated Apple Watch. In this short post, I will try to tell you about the most innovative features, prices and the start of sales of the smartwatch.
Earlier this year, I told you about the talks between Apple and Japan Display concerning the possibility of investing money in the construction of a new factory capable of production of displays for next generations of iPhones and other smartphones. Looks like these talks were successful as Japan Display on Friday confirmed its plans to build the new factory. The sum of money required for the construction is reportedly equal to $1.4 billion, which goes in line with several previous rumors and reports. The only thing missing is the confirmation of Apple’s plans to invest money in this project. However, secrecy is a typical feature of the tech giant from Cupertino.
