With yesterday’s big announcement from Apple, there is a new size of iPad in town. The iPad Air is significantly thinner in width and height, which means case makers have a new line of products to create. Luckily, many companies have already started production on properly sized accessories for the iPad Air. Belkin and Griffin have just announced updates to their most popular cases to fit Apple’s fifth-generation iPad.
Yesterday, Apple unveiled the newest version of the iPad and iPad mini. The larger sized tablet is now so much smaller and lighter than its predecessor that the company had to give it a new name, iPad Air. The 7.9-inch iPad mini has finally been given a Retina display screen. Both new models will be available from a variety of carriers starting Friday, Nov. 1. We’ve got some information to help you decide what plan you’d like to go with.
Welcome back to another installment of our weekly do-it-yourself iPad project spotlight. Each week, we track down bold and beautiful crafts and homemade accessories for your iPad. Last week, we told you about a project for astronomical iPad fans. That is, iPad users who are stargazers.
This week, we have a Halloween costume idea to get those gears turning in your brain and the blood pumping through the hole in your chest.
I drove by the OtterBox headquarters a few weeks ago in Fort Collins, Colorado and was reminded about how important this company has become to me and my group of friends. I have kids and all of my friends have kids too and we all love our iPhones and iPads. The problem is that our kids love them more and every single one of us has a pre-OtterBox horror story. OtterBox has thankfully announced that its lineup will support the new iPad Air and iPad Mini which is good news.

Apple’s big event today was undoubtedly the biggest one of the year for the tech giant. Not only did we see the beautiful new iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina display, but we also saw a demo of the new iLife and iWork suites and can now download OS X Mavericks on our Mac computers for free so that our desktops and iPads can work seamlessly together. That’s not all. We’ve got a rundown of everything Apple announced at today’s event.
At today’s big announcement, Apple wowed us with quite a few surprises, not the least of which was the fact that the iPad now has a new name. Although not much of a surprise, Apple also announced that the iPad mini will indeed feature a Retina Display. Thanks to the 3.1 million pixels of the full-sized iPad being crammed into a 7.9-inch display screen, users will now be watching movies in the ultimate 1080p high-definition.
Apple announced major updates to its line of iLife and iWork updates today. The biggest news? They are now free. This announcement followed the announcement that OS X Mavericks is also free, which was poignantly displayed against the backdrop of Window 8 Pro at $199.
Apple has just released some official numbers at its big event today. The company regularly brags about number of units sold, amount of money made by developers, and amount of apps and downloads in the App Store. Today, the company announced record-level updates to iOS 7, as well as a bit more impressive data to be proud of.
