Apple’s upgraded specs for the 2021 iPad mini might have just leaked

Published

on

Several iPad mini rumors claimed 2021 would be the year that Apple gave the smallest tablet in its lineup a big upgrade. Apple won’t just offer users specs more in line with what’s available on other iPads and iPhones. It will also significantly redesign the tablet. The new iPad mini will sport a larger display, as Apple will remove the Touch ID button. The fingerprint sensor would sit on the power button, just like on last year’s iPad Air. A new report offers us a look at the new iPad mini’s purported specs. The report suggests that the new tablet will feature formidable hardware. The upgrades would put it on par with the iPhone 13 series in terms of performance.

Apple hasn’t updated the iPad mini hardware since 2018. The current models run on the A12 Bionic chip. The processor can still handle iPadOS 15, but the 5th-gen iPad mini is hardly a match for the new iPad Air and iPad Pro. These tablets sport the A14 Bionic and M1 processors, respectively. The newest rumor claims the iPad mini 6 will get the same chip as the iPhone 13, the upcoming A15 Bionic.

The leaked iPad mini specs

Sources familiar with Apple’s plans informed 9to5Mac that the 2021 iPad mini (codename J310) would feature the A15 processor, USB-C connectivity, and a magnetic Smart Connector.

These specs will put the new iPad mini on par with the new iPad Air and Pro in terms of performance. The A15 Bionic will be a 5nm chip that should deliver speed and efficiency gains over its predecessor. The USB-C connection will make it easier for users to connect all sorts of peripherals to the iPad mini, including external storage devices. The Smart Connector port would bring supported accessories to the smaller tablet.

The report doesn’t offer new details on the iPad mini 6’s new design. But it quotes the recent Bloomberg story that said the 2021 version would feature slimmer bezels, a larger screen, and no home button. If that design leak is accurate, the new iPad mini would become a smaller version of the iPad Air 4th-gen launched last September.

iPad 9th-gen surprise

The iPad mini refresh will happen later this year, although the report did not provide an actual release date. It’s still unclear how Apple will organize this fall’s launch events. Apple should unveil the iPhone 13 series, new MacBook Pros, and new iPads in the coming months. Several reports suggested that the iPhone 13 announcement will take place in mid-September.

Aside from the main 2021 iPad mini specs, 9to5Mac also shared details about the upcoming 9th-gen iPad. The new entry-level tablet (codename J181) would feature a significant chip upgrade — A13 Bionic instead of A12. The A13 powers the iPhone 11 series that launched in 2019.

One Of The Largest Large Format Cameras You Will Ever Have Seen

Published

on

When fate lands a very high quality lens in front of you, what do you do with it? If you are [Tim Hamilton], the solution is obvious. Use it in a huge large-format camera.

The lens came from a newspaper magnifier made redundant by digitalisation and used as a paperweight. It’s an extremely high quality piece of optical equipment so seeing it wasted in this way was a source of distress. So after characterising it an enormous scaled-up box and bellows was constructed, and set upon a suitably substantial wheeled tripod.

Instead of a huge piece of film or some unobtainable giant electronic sensor, the image is projected onto a large screen at the rear of the camera. A modern digital camera is mounted inside the box just beneath the lens and photographs the screen, resulting in the feel of the largest of large format cameras with the convenience of a digital format. The resulting images have a special quality to them that recalls pictures from the past, and definitely makes the camera a special if slightly inconvenient device.

This may be one of the larger cameras we’ve featured, but it’s not the first that uses a similar technique.

Apple Music, iTunes Store, App Store hit by outages | AppleInsider

Published

on

A number of Apple Music, App Store, and iTunes users are encountering issues with the online services, problems Apple is aware of and is trying to rectify.

Posts to social media including Twitter indicate there are issues with three major Apple services, including iTunes, Apple Music, and the App Store. Tweets have been posted saying that there are problems listening to music and downloading apps.

Checks of DownDetector by iMore indicate issues with all three services started on Saturday afternoon at around 1 pm eastern time. It also appears the three services went down at around the same time, though it is unclear how many people are actually affected.

Apple’s System Status page advises there are ongoing outages for both the iTunes Store and the App Store, with both said to be “slow or unavailable,” and that “some users are affected.” Apple Music is not currently flagged by Apple as enduring an outage at the time of publication.

Both services were also affected by an earlier outage that caused slow and spotty access from Thursday until Friday, which may be connected to the current situation.

AppleInsider will update this post if changes occur.
