Nearly 4 million iPad Mini 2 units ordered by Apple this month

The new iPad Mini 2 – which comes with a 7.9 inch Retina display, unlike the first-generation iPad Mini – is available to purchase since November 12. Apple has reportedly ordered “nearly 4 million” iPad Mini 2s “for shipments in November” – according to DigiTimes, which quotes Taiwan-based supply chain makers. Initial availability of the second-generation iPad Mini was limited because suppliers (including Sharp and LG) weren’t able to...

Alleged Apple iPad Mini 3 prototype with Touch ID pictured

Touch ID, Apple’s own fingerprint identity sensor, introduced for the first time on the iPhone 5S, might be also used on the next-generation iPad Mini (possibly called iPad Mini 3). Sure enough, the iPad Mini 2 has just been released, so a new generation is unlikely to be announced anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean Apple isn’t already developing it. Nowhereelse.fr has received an image which supposedly shows an iPad Mini 3 prototype...

Gold-colored iPad Mini 2 photographed?

With Apple now having an official gold iPhone, it’s not surprising that an alleged golden iPad Mini 2 has appeared in some photos – not long before the new tablet should be announced alongside a 9.7 inch iPad 5. Like the new iPhone 5S, it seems that the iPad Mini 2 has a sapphire crystal Home button – which may include a fingerprint recognition sensor. Sure enough, there’s no way of telling if these photos – spotted over at Chinese...

12.9 inch Apple iPad already in testing at Quanta?

It’s not the first time we’re hearing that Apple might plan to introduce a larger version of its iPad – more exactly, one with a display of about 13 inches. Now, Chinese media is reporting that Quanta Computer – one of Apple’s traditional hardware partners – is testing 12.9 inch iPads. Unfortunately, details are fuzzy ate the moment, so we don’t really know anything about this new 12.9 inch Apple tablet. It’s a long way from testing a...

Apple’s new iPad and iPad Mini 2 might have sapphire crystal home buttons

One of the novelties that Apple’s iPhone 5S brings is a fingerprint sensor that’s embedded into the handset’s home button – which is protected by sapphire crystal. According to DigiTimes and “Taiwan-based sapphire makers”, Apple could use similar sapphire crystal home buttons for its next-generation iPads (the new 9.7 inch iPad, and the iPad Mini 2). This might mean they’ll both have fingerprint sensors – but we can’t be sure of that...

Nokia’s first Windows tablet is codenamed Sirius, will compete with Apple’s iPad

The red Nokia tablet that we saw earlier this month is seemingly codenamed Sirius, and will have a design that resembles Nokia’s Lumia smartphones.

Reportedly, the Sirius will sport a 10.1 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display with enhanced outdoor readability. Running Windows RT, the tablet should feature LTE connectivity, a...

Apple’s iPad Mini 2 and new, cheap iPhone could start shipping in August

Although Apple may consider launching 4.7 inch and 5.7 inch iPhones, that will certainly not happen this year. Instead, the Cupertino company will most likely introduce a new and cheap iPhone model, alongside a successor to the iPhone 5 – which should be called iPhone 5S, or iPhone 6. DigiTimes reports that the cheap iPhone will be manufactured by Pegatron, which plans to start shipping it in August. According to previous rumors, this...

New Apple iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display not coming until October? Cheaper model could be launched earlier

We’ve been hearing about a new iPad Mini for quite a while now, and everyone seems to believe the tablet is going to be available sometime in September. However, it might not happen that soon. Apple Insider has obtained a research note from KGI Securities, which suggests that the iPad Mini 2 will not enter mass production before October. Just like in the case of iPhone 5S (expected to debut in early September), Apple seems to have...

iPhone 5S and new cheap iPhone expected to debut in early September. TD-SCDMA versions coming later

Here we have fresh rumors about Apple’s next-generation iPhones (yes, it looks like this year, for the very first time, the Cupertino company will announce not one, but two new iPhone models). According to China Times, Citigroup Global Securities issued a new note reporting that the iPhone 5S and a cheaper iPhone would be available starting early September (new here means it’s not the same note issued on April 22). Reportedly, Apple...

Apple iPhone 5S production might start later than expected. iPad 5 rear shell leaks

Last we heard, production for Apple’s next-generation iPhone was supposed to start this quarter, so in June the latest. However, new reports are suggesting that Apple is in a bit of trouble with at least one of the new features expected from the iPhone 5S (or whatever its final name is going to be): the fingerprint sensor. According to Reuters, supplier sources based in Taiwan and Japan believe that production for the new iPhone may...
