The rear mic moved from being next to the camera lens to the centre of the back, so no current case will be a perfect fit.

I think the old 10.5 Pro’s Smart Keyboard is still the current 10.5 keyboard model, even for the new “Air”.

Anyone know if iPad Mini 4 cases and covers will fit the new iPad Mini 5?

Maybe, but they’ve been selling things called “iPad Pro” for three years prior that the new Pencil doesn’t work with.

Today’s iPad updates flesh out and clean up the line, right some wrongs, and sweep away neglect, with the sole downside that you’ll likely pay a hefty price to get what you want. A return of classic Apple. I expect the same thing to happen to the Mac over the rest of the year.

Excluding the mini, the naming scheme is also refreshingly consistent with MacBook, with vanilla, stepped-up Air, and two Pro sizes.

This is what we’ve been wanting Apple to do: ship frequent, boring spec-bump updates, rather than selling ancient hardware for years and leaving us wondering if there’ll ever be an update again.

The iPad lineup makes far more sense now than when there was a $500 price gap in the middle of it, most but not all could use Pencils, the Mini was ancient, etc. Now, they’re all Pencil-able, they’re all A12 except the cheapest model, and all prices and sizes are well-covered.

And pilots. The mini is the only iOS device that's big enough to use from an arm's length, small enough to fit in a cramped cockpit, and approved by the FAA. I know a few charter pilots who are rejoicing this AM.

Some people are calling the 737MAX tragedies a failure. Here's my response: It's not a software problem. It was an * Economic problem that the 737 engines used too much fuel, so they decided to install more efficient engines with bigger fans and make the 737MAX.

Nope. He just doesn’t let you get away with vague or incomplete answers.

In the bedtime post-song timeslot that usually contains only “goodnight”, the kid had some surprise questions tonight. Topics covered: - umbilical cords - C-sections - how babies fit through vaginas - anesthesia - fatal stomach injuries - hot feet - the origins of plant life

Today’s app update greatly improves CarPlay. It also fixes a bad bug that could cause episodes you added to a playlist to be deleted on next sync if they exceeded your episode limit for those shows. That took a long time to figure out. I’m sorry to those who hit it. Fixed now.

HiFiMan planars. Maybe the HE-560 or whatever its newest version is. I haven’t been following the market recently.

Of course. They track people who don’t even have accounts. There’s no way to avoid being extensively, precisely, thoroughly tracked by Facebook unless your network blocks all of their API endpoints, which would prevent Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp from working at all.

Happy birthday to who is far more caring, funny and handsome than his habit of backing into a parking space would lead you to believe. 💙
