Microsoft Surface kicks dust in face of Apple iPad Pro in Q3

Microsoft's Surface line leapfrogged Apple's iPad Pro as the detachable tablet of choice for tech distributors in Western Europe but that top spot definitely won't be sustained, or so IDC says. The box-counter estimated that "roughly" 316,000 Surface devices were shipped into wholesalers' warehouses in Q3, up around 40 per …

Chuck this on expenses: £2k iPad paints Apple as the premium fondleslab specialist – as planned

Analysis None of the new products Apple announced yesterday – laptops, desktops and tablets – are cheap, and all are more expensive than the models they supersede. But the introduction of a £2,000 iPad is by far the most eye-catching. That's the size of the hole an iPad Pro makes in your wallet if you choose the maximum specs – a 12.9- …

Apple's launch confirms one thing: It's determined to kill off the laptop for iPads

Analysis It may seem counterintuitive to use the launch of a new Apple laptop to argue that the company is trying to kill off laptops altogether but that is exactly what's happening. Today, Cupertino announced a revamped version of its beloved MacBook Air – a lightweight laptop designed in 2010 that hasn't been touched since a small …

Apple takes $9m kick down under after bricking iPhones

Apple is facing a $9m (AUS) slap-on-the-wrist for kicking out a firmware update that disabled some repaired iOS devices in Australia.

You know what your problem is, Apple? Complacency

Comment When several "leaked" reports appear to show that Apple is focusing on quality, not features, it's reasonable to conclude that Apple is concerned the world perceives a quality problem. We heard the message via Axios in January that Apple was focusing on reliability rather than new features. And again at the weekend. But wait …

Apple somehow plucks iPad sales out from 13-quarter death spiral

Few people remarked on it this week, but Apple has reversed the declining fortunes of the iPad, achieving modest growth for the fourth successive quarter in a market that continues to slide. It's only a small increase, but any increase in the tablet business is unusual, as new IDC figures out today confirmed. For 13 …

Planning on forking out for the new iPad? Better take darn good care of it

Teardown show-offs iFixit have found few changes with the latest iPad – but it does have a larger battery than the more expensive "Pro" iPad. The sixth-gen iPad is aimed at the education market and is the first non-Pro model to support the Apple Pencil. This means there's a budget digitiser incorporated in the display. iFixit …

Why a merged Apple OS is one mash-up too far

Comment It's come full circle. Young reporters joining a prestigious tech publication 20 years ago were quietly advised to focus on only three companies in what we then called "Client Computing". Who were they? Intel, because no other chip company mattered – nobody could produce powerful PC chips at scale. Microsoft, because, well, it …

Apple, if you want to win in education, look at what sucks about iPads

For us crazed weirdos who work in education – that's primary schools for me – I'll admit it was mildly encouraging to find our world was the main thrust of an Apple event this week. The updated, marginally cheaper iPad with pencil support isn't about to set hearts ablaze, but the mostly stable and reliable environment of iOS …

Six things I learned from using the iPad Pro for Real Work™

Real world test Last year Apple transformed the fortunes of its iPad. In the spring the iconic fondleslab looked so neglected, it was declared "done". Sales were half of what they had been at the iPad's peak. Then in June, the biggest software update in years, iOS 11, transformed the iPad from a glorified picture frame into something …

Apple: iPhone sales are down (but they've never been more lucrative)

Apple on Thursday touted its highest-grossing quarter ever, even as iPhone and Mac shipments were down. CEO Tim Cook made a point of singling out strong iPhone X and iPad sales, while glossing over slowed Mac sales. For the quarter ending December 30, Apple's first of its fiscal 2018: Revenues of $88.2bn beat out analyst …

Apple, quit milking tech-addicted fruit of our loins – shareholders
