Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S4 might ditch the fingerprint sensor for an iris scanner

Samsung is reportedly planning to ditch the fingerprint scanner on their next Tab release, but before you start yelling ‘security breach!’, hear them out… It’s almost certain the company will include its Intelligent Scan feature on the Galaxy Tab S4. The security feature makes use of an iris scanner and facial recognition tech at the same time, and is currently available on the Samsung Galax...[Read More]

Apple wants to put iPads on school desks

Digital classrooms are becoming more and more prominent around the world — even right here in Mzanzi, and Apple is moving into this new market. The newly announced cheaper 9.7 inch iPad has been reworked specifically with education in mind.

Huawei’s got a new laptop and tablet, and we’re definitely getting the former

While Samsung and Nokia showed off new handsets yesterday in Barcelona, Huawei has opted to keep its new phones on hold for its own launch events later this year and unveiled a new MateBook X Pro laptop and MediaPad M5 tablet instead. The MateBook X Pro is an ultraportable laptop with a 3K touch-sensitive display and 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution. It gets its grunt from Intel’s 8th gen Core i...[Read More]

Razer’s Project Linda debut at CES – just another phone/laptop combo?

Gaming hardware company Razer is known for going overboard with their CES prototypes, and none of them really make it to market, but maybe Project Linda will… What’s Linda, you ask? On the second day of CES 2018 Razer presented a new prototype called Project Linda, which is a laptop dock for the Razer smartphone released in November last year. Unlike previous phone-powered laptop concepts li...[Read More]

Which iPad should you buy? There’s an iPad to suit your needs

Once upon a time, buying an iPad just meant buying the iPad. There was one model, and nothing else on the market came close to it. But these days, Apple has four different iPads in four different sizes, each with its own components and perks, not to mention a distinct price point. Hey, at least it’s better than Apple’s iPhone situation right now, since there are eight different handset...[Read More]

Motorola is (for some strange reason) releasing a tablet called the Moto Tab

Fewer and fewer companies are releasing dedicated tablets, with the only major players coming to mind being Apple and Samsung (and Samsung only just makes the list). So it’s a little surprising to learn that there’s a new tablet coming from none other than… Motorola? Wait, really? Yup. It’s called the Moto Tab, because what else would they call it, and it’s set to be ...[Read More]

The 16 best new iOS 11 features – and how to use them

When iOS 11 was announced, we suggested it would make iPad awesome all over again. But the truth is it’s a slice of awesome whatever iOS device you’re rocking. On iPad, iOS 11 is Apple’s attempt to marry desktop power with iOS elegance – hence the Files app, drag and drop, and souped-up multitasking. But iPhone owners aren’t left in the lurch, because they get plenty of goodies, too. So delve into...[Read More]

Dell’s new Latitude 7212 tablet is the one that breaks stuff it’s dropped on

Dell has a new tablet on the horizon and it’s a tough one. And if you were not aware that Dell made tablets then you haven’t been paying attention. The Latitude 7212 is the successor to the company’s previous Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet, with this updated model carrying the same name. It’s only the model number, and the construction, and the specifications, which are differen...[Read More]

Here’s how to download the iOS 11 public beta

Just unveiled mere weeks ago at WWDC, Apple’s iOS 11 brings a load of fresh tweaks to the iPhone and iPad operating system, but we probably won’t see it release until September. Luckily, you can jump the queue right now if you’re a bit daring: Apple has just released the first public beta version of iOS 11, much as it did with iOS 10 last year. Now anyone with a compatible phone ...[Read More]

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 hands-on — Enough to make you leave your laptop behind?

Apple has been trying to convince people for years that you could swap your laptop for an iPad. In fact, it’s been trying to convince people since the first model launched in 2010. For most people (read: people who need actual keyboards), it’s so far proven a step too far. Many, many people use iPads, but most still want a laptop too. The latest iPads could perhaps change that. The new...[Read More]

Stung by criticism, Apple rejuvenated its computers while launching a home voice assistant

If you were expecting the traditional “and one more thing” from Apple’s big announcements this week, you would’ve been disappointed. Those days are long gone. Under the tyrannical rule of Steve Jobs, where suppliers and would-be leakers were terrified of the omerta imposed by the fanatical and secretive co-founder, such leaks would never be tolerated. This chokehold has slo...[Read More]

Why iOS 11 makes iPad awesome all over again

The iPad experience has always been mixed: mostly wonderment, but also a nagging feeling the device was being held back. On the positive side, iPad apps have been various degrees of revolutionary – within a few revisions, Apple’s tablet finds a lot of use in music-creation, reading, email, and games-playing around these parts. But we want more – for the iPad to replace the iMac for everythin...[Read More]
