Another day, another leaked photo. Another showcase from China of a prototype of the upcoming 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro. This is still a rumor but this photo looks like the real thing, at least, for a prototype.
Looking at the phone makes me think it’s a MacBook Air. The size is too large for a slate but it seems wider like a bigger iPad. The iPad Pro measuring 12.9-inches is said to have either 4096 x 3072 resolution (4K) or 2K resolution screen. Impressive.
The iPad Pro prototype also features an aluminium casing. You can see the standard Apple logo and camera lens. There’s another rumor though that this pro iPad will be targeted for the enterprise and the education market which means consumers won’t get this easily.
I’m still not convinced that Apple is working on an iPad Pro but I can’t wait for Apple to prove me otherwise. Looking forward to more leaks until Apple makes an announcement before the year ends. We’ll see.

Millions of iPhones are being sold and in China, as reported by China Mobile, about 1.3 million 4G iPhones have been sold since the first month of the year 2014. From January to March, in just one quarter, more than a million iPhones have landed in China. (Well, that last statement was kind of untrue since the iPhone is actually made in China.) mehr »
Last month, we learned that TSMC would deliver A8 chips to Apple and not Samsung.

Whatever that means, at least, we know that TSMC and Apple’s partnership will bring us the next-generation iPhone. mehr »

Christmas is just around the corner. Honestly, I haven’t started with the Christmas decors and gift shopping yet. I don’t know when I’d be able to do those. Thank heavens for Apple’s new promo of download a gift, I think I’ll just resort to iTunes and do my digital shopping. mehr »
Apple is no longer a stranger to China. The Cupertino company may have gone through many different issues in the country but it will continue to thrive. Why wouldn’t it when most Apple products are manufactured in China. mehr »

Apple may be one of the most successful brands today but it’s facing a lot of challenges as well. Its battle with Samsung won’t end soon. Despite all those, it still wins in courts in some parts of the world. One of the most notable lawsuits include yet again Judge Lucy Koh. Why, privacy lawsuits were thrown out by the judge because the complainants failed to show enough reasons. mehr »
The new Mac Pro has yet to be released in the market but Apple has already
