Apple mini ipad 2012

For the past few weeks, we figured that Apple would be unveiling both its next-generation iPhone 5 as well as a 7.85-inch iPad at the same event on September 12. We thought it made sense that the company would introduce its new iOS devices all at once, but Daring Fireball's John Gruber theorized that a simultaneous unveiling might not be in the cards because then the two devices would steal each other's thunder, so to speak.

Apple Store goes down ahead of iPad HD and Apple TV launch

Apple Store Online is down

In just about an hour, Apple will be announcing its newest tablet, the iPad HD. The company will likely also launch an updated Apple TV set-top box that's capable of 1080p output. As is typical before these events, the Apple Store Online is down. We'll have coverage of the event as it happens.


iPad 3 to officially be named “iPad HD”?

iPad HD

At tomorrow's Apple iPad event, the next iPad will be revealed to the world. We've been tipped on the fact that it'll have a ridiculously high resolution display, and that it will likely pack in 4G LTE for the AT&T and Verizon models, both of which are exciting prospects. Now we're hearing that what we've been referring to as the iPad 3 all along will likely be given a different moniker: iPad HD. It kind of makes sense, and it kind of doesn't. I mean, the display is going to be a ridiculous 2048x1536 in resolution. That is way better than 720p or 1080p, something other tablets have yet to achieve. Further, since this iPad will sport a super high resolution display, that means future iPad will, too. Whatever though--the point is that Apple has settled on a name for the next iPad, and it's iPad HD. We'll have all the details from the announcement tomorrow!

Apple iPad 3 event

We've been talking about March 7 as the date that Apple will unveil the new iPad 3 to the world, and this morning that company confirmed it as invites went out to select members of the press. The iPad 3 will make its debut at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10:00AM PST on March 7, just 8 days from today. As you can see in the invite above, it's a teaser of a high resolution Retina Display-equipped Apple tablet! According to many sources, it'll also be the first iPad to include a 4G LTE chipset as well. As always, we'll let you know the details of the announcements as they happen next week.


Video shows iPad 3 Retina display

The other day we filled you in on details about the iPad 3, which will feature a 2048x1536 display, as confirmed by our friends at MacRumors. Now, the folks over at iFixIt are chiming in, explaining the process of figuring out that the purported iPad 3 panel will feature a Retina Display. Check out the video above for the details. Of course, Apple has yet to officially announce anything having to do with the next iPad, and won't be saying anything until March 7, so this is all just a hypothesis. Nevertheless, this is  what's gonna happen. Expect it!

Mac OS X Lion has been downloaded 6 million times

Lion App Store

If you were wondering if Apple was making the right decision in launching Mac OS X 10.7, better known as Lion, as a digital download on the Mac App Store, it looks like that question has been answered. At this morning's Apple event, Tim Cook announced that Lion has been downloaded 6 million times. According to Tim, it took Windows 7 twenty weeks to reach what it took Lion 2 weeks to achieve in terms of install base.
