iPad mini: Powerful Hardware in the Same Package

· · Link

Some of the first iPad mini reviews are coming out, and so far it sounds like Matthew Panzarino is happy with it.

I include that context here because, though the iPad Pro is a whole ass computer and really capable, it is not exactly ‘fun’ to use in non standard ways. That’s where the iPad mini has always shined and continues to do so. It really is pocketable in a loose jacket or coat. Because the mini is not heavy, it exercises little of the constant torsion and strain on your wrist that a larger iPad does, making it one-handed.

 

AnandTech's Comprehensive iPhone XR Review

· · Link

Andrei Frumusanu wrote a long, detailed iPhone XR review, talking about the display, battery life, and more.

The iPhone XR is an interesting product for Apple: It is clear that it aims to be a lower-cost alternative to the higher-end XS flagships. Yet at the same time it’s not directly an alternative to either the XS or the XS Max, and rather represents a model that squarely fits in-between its two higher-priced siblings.

Although the iPhone XR has been out for a while, this is still a great review to read.

An Artist Reviews the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

· · Cool Stuff Found

The iPad Pro will NEVER be a computer, do you hear me? Now excuse me while I type this CSF on my mechanical keyboard (forged in that girl’s tears) that will collapse my apartment building because of the vibration.

Sarcasm aside, the reason I like this iPad Pro review is because it’s from an artist, not a tech pundit. Ian Barnard covers the iPad Pro and the new Apple pencil. He doesn’t show off the art capabilities a whole lot, but he unboxes the devices and talks about them. Ultimately he likes the new model, and recommends upgrading to it, with the caveat that it might not be your cup of tea (British pun intended) and your wallet will have to decide.

Brydge 12.9 Keyboard for iPad Pro

Apple has waxed enthusiastic about keyboards for the iPad and now offers its own. But the design may not be for everyone.
