Apple’s newly-released iPad mini with incredible Retina display shows fewer colors than its market rivals. Moreover, difference in picture quality on iPad mini and its “older brother” iPad Air is noticeable without special equipment. And the results of independent tests once again prove the fact that colors on iPad mini look somehow darker and not as vivid as on rival tablets. Who’d ever have thought, huh?

Some Retina iPad minis may show image retention issues, reports Marco Arment, a person that created a special test to detect the problem in MacBook Pros with Retina displays. Faulty IGZO-panels, according to the latest rumors, were manufactured by Sharp and this were probably these panels that caused production delays and forced Apple to release the tablet quietly.
We have already mentioned that new Apple devices are technically able to work with many LTE networks worldwide, including LTE network in Russia. Apple still blocks iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C from LTE, but the new iPad Air works just fine with LTE in Russia.
Here is a quick test of Megafon LTE cellular network in Moscow:

According to Chinese sources, Foxconn is now testing a brand new iPad with an enormous screen. Whether this information is legitimate or not is still unclear, however, insiders claim that such a device may be actually unveiled next year. Well, if to speak about me, I don’t think Apple will release the larger iPad soon. But who knows, anything may happen.
Apple is expected to roll out the update for OS X Mavericks soon. This update will include some bug fixes for the Mail, iBooks, Safari, and the Remote Desktop Client apps. All of these minor updates are being tested by Apple’s employees.
Performance analytics firm called Primate Labs has tested Apple’s iPad Air and estimated that this device is about 90% faster than its predecessor iPad 4.

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. However, the journalists were unable to provide at least one expert's conclusion or independent testing result, so looks like such an article was aimed only to draw some attention from the newspaper readers, that’s all.
