Dropbox Now Supports Full Screen iPad Navigation, Drag and Drop on iOS

By Radu Iorga

Dropbox just got updated in its iOS version, now support a few extra useful gimmicks on the iPad and iPhones. We have them listed below and they’re the kind of features to ease interaction with files, even if you’re not using a PC.

I have to admit I’m not a big fan of Dropbox on the iPad, because a lot of screen space is wasted. This time the file hosting service has launched a new update for Apple devices, which includes full screen file navigation features for the iDevices. You will just need to collapse the preview pane to see the files’ full names, so you know for sure you are clicking on work documents and photos, not your cat pics.

Drag and dropping files around is also supported now, when you tap and hold said files, as long as the device runs on iOS 11. This makes it easier to arrange your files in a certain way and organize them in folders. You can also grant access to files while on the go, so if a work mate wants to access something you can let them straight from the push notification.

Improved text file support is also here, with better previewing and text editing for over 120 file extensions. The best thing is that you can edit documents without having to use other apps to open them. You can download the app here.

iPad 9.7 Inch 6th Gen Is Now Getting Shipped

By Radu Iorga

It seems that devices are moving faster than ever these days, as the latest iPad has just started shipping, even though it’s been announced on Tuesday. People have been getting it since Thursday apparently, according to Redditor /u/Liquidit, who posted pictures like the one above.

It’s a 32 GB WiFi only model in Space Gray, model A1893. The pics were taken at 7:30 am Eastern on Thursday morning, so basically 40 hours after the announcement, the device was already shipped. And keep in mind the Redditor in question is European, from Germany. The main upgrades are Apple Pencil support and a new CPU, plus the appealing $299 price for students. The Redditor claims that the new iPad is more potent than the 9.7 inch iPad Pro first gen model, so that sounds good.

In the meantime retailers have started pushing discounts for the 5th gen iPad, an excellent set of offers for the last year model, which was $329 originally. I’m sure it’s below $300 by now or even around $250. I’ll remind you that the new iPad plays with AR, courtesy of the Apple A10 Fusion chip. It also has Touch ID, a 10 hour battery, iOS 11 of course and its Pencil is sold separately for $99 for consumers and $89 for students.

Teachers also get their own app called Schoolwork, which is free and cloud based. It lets teachers organized assignments, send PDFs or documents as handouts and create activities for students. Don’t get too excited, since that app comes in June. Things to remember? The new device is shipping fast and it’s probably $329 for you, the average user. You’re probably going to just play PUBG on it let’s face it…

Logitech Announces Rugged Combo 2 Case, Logitech Crayon Stylus for iPad

By Radu Iorga

Logitech took advantage of the new iPad unveiling to showcase a few products of its own, obviously focused on the iPad. They debuted a new stylus, dubbed Crayon and a Rugged Combo 2 Case, also designed for the Apple slate.

These accessories are designed with the iPad 2018 in mind and they’re meant for students who use the new tablet. The Logitech Crayon is similar to the Apple Pencil, but it’s cheaper, at $49, which is about half the price of the Apple Pencil, that sells to schools for $89. Logitech promises a similar experience though, thanks to the sub pixel precision, low latency and also there’s tilt support.

Compatibility with apps is expanded and the the accessory has improved grip, preventing accidental drops and rolling. Battery life is rated at 8 hours and we also have a pry resilient tip, plus a rubbed cap, that seems to hide the charging port. The Crayon connect via a special frequency and doesn’t rely on Bluetooth.

 

Then we’ve got the Rugged Combo 2 Case, a $99.99 accessory, which was made using input from educators. It’s supposed to survive the daily class activities, the “wear and tear” typical for schools. It’s got a protective screen cover, which also works as a keyboard and up top there’s a special slot for the Logitech Crayon. The good news is that the keyboard is detachable and the key caps aren’t easy to pry by mistake.

It’s also a silent keyboard and the case provides spill and drop resilience (up to 4 feet).

Apple Debuts New iPad With Pencil Support and $299 Price Tag for Students

By James A.

As expected, Apple’s event taking place today was focused on education indeed and it brought goodies for students. Those goodies include a $299 iPad meant for this type of public and its specs are not half bad.

The machine is a 9.7 incher, as rumored and it plays nicely with an Apple Pencil. The thing is that you have to purchase it separately. The new iPad is found in stores today, in colors like silver, space gray and a brand new gold finish. It comes with a Touch ID fingerprint scanner, HD FaceTime camera and 10 hours of battery life.

There’s an 8 megapixel main camera here and you can purchase the device with LTE. Inside the slate there’s the Apple A10 Fusion CPU keeping the lights on and other specs include GPS, compass and even AR functionality is promised. The new iPad is available for schools and students priced at $299, while the regular consumer gets it for $329. Keep in mind that you pay extra for accessories, like styli and keyboards. You could even go as high as $450, with keyboard and stylus included.

 

I should highlight the interaction that the new iPad has with the stylus, with the same tilt and pressure abilities that the iPad Pro has. Otherwise, the product looks and feels the same as the model before. The new unit also comes with new versions of the productivity suite apps from Apple, Pages, Numbers and Keynote. All of them are enhanced and boosted by the Apple Pencil.

Apple promises you can scan documents and use the 200.000 apps made for education and ideal for this device. The Apple Pencil is sold separately at $99, or $89 even for students.

Apple Prepping New iPad Model Launches for 2018, Towards the Year End

By Radu Iorga

New info about the future iPads has appeared today, indicating the time frame of the devices’ release. We learn that Apple is planning to launch new iPads towards the year end, according to analyst Mark Gurman.

The info pops up in a report that focuses on the Apple chip making segment. It also mentions that Apple is going to introduce the updated laptops and a new desktop computer in 2018. The new iPad is said to be running on a special Apple-designed graphics engine and it’s very likely to have a dedicated AI chip. Last I heard the device was expected to arrive this Spring, with a Face ID/TrueDepth thingie.

That info came from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst who talked rather of 3D face recognition, more than a launch date. So, I guess it could come in the fall with the new iPhones. The new iPad is also said to have slimmer bezels and maybe even an OLED panel. iOS 11.3 beta referred to a certain “modern iPad”, which is supposed to confirm the iPhone X. The TrueDepth mechanism also lets you activate the Animoji features.

By the way I learned some interesting facts from the Bloomberg article about Apple’s CPUs, like the fact they have chip testing facilities in Cupertino, Israel and they employ hundreds of people for the task. Apple has been hiring ex Qualcomm people, hinting at the fact they may be making their own connectivity modems. Apple is also considering using MediaTek or Intel chips, as they battle Qualcomm in courts.

There are also the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and iMac Pro, with Apple custom processors, just so you know. Now we know that they’re making at least 3 updated Mac models with custom coprocessors for release this year, laptops included.

This also sounds interesting for the new iPad, which may well include an evolved Apple A11X Bionic CPU. With Apple doing battle with Qualcomm, there may come a time when they become a leader in the chip market, if they’re able to compete with Samsung first.
