Back in 2010, Steve Jobs introduced the iPad as “a revolutionary device,” which “creates and defines an entirely new category of devices.” The message was clear — the iPad is a device sitting between smartphones and laptops. Apple later made the Pro version, and now, the newest iPad Pro boasts an M1 chip used in some MacBook models.
The concept of what a computer is, or what a tablet can do, is changing.
When the iPad Pro 2020 was unveiled, we discussed the possibility of it replacing a laptop .
Since the iPad Pro 2021 is more powerful than previous…
According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, technology is:
“the application of scientific knowledge to the practical aims of human life or, as it is sometimes phrased, to the change and manipulation of the human environment.”
For technological innovation, there should be a combination of three things: need, resources, and skills, and a society that is open to change.
So, for advances in technology to actually happen, society must be consciously aware that there is a need for it (or perhaps we are persuaded that there is).
We’re now experiencing the ‘fourth industrial revolution,’ a fusion of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of…
It’s 9:55 a.m., April 20, 2021.
Our product managers, design engineers, and other members of the PITAKA team are crammed into the presentation room, waiting for the long-anticipated Apple event to kick off.
Some are sipping coffee; others are exchanging words as Apple unveils new products.
“Huh. That iMac looks familiar”, says Qiu, the product manager for our new product, the MagEZ Stand.
“Well, great minds think alike,” James responds.
Last year when our engineers were working to improve the MagEZ Case for iPad Pro 2018/2020 , we discovered that many people wanted to mount their iPad while using a…
One month after Apple’s “Spring Loaded” event, people worldwide are waiting with anticipation for their new iPad Pro to arrive. Others are still on the fence about taking the plunge.
The 5th generation tablet is the biggest iPad Pro upgrade ever.
But what does the new iPad Pro do differently from the previous model? Is it worth upgrading? Does it suit your needs?
These are some of the questions I’m going to help you answer below!
Undeniably, the most talked about topic is the revolutionary M1 chip that Apple has used in the new Macs. The laptop-grade processor makes the…
Not once, but on several occasions, we had to tell a customer that the colored case they wanted was out of stock. We might suggest that they switch to another color, and sometimes they would accept. Other times, they decided to wait for new stock or, sadly, even ask for a refund.
We always assumed that the majority of people would wait for the color that they really wanted. Then, one day, a customer from Italy enlightened us: he loved the black and yellow case, but he eventually swapped it with the black and grey one. Why? …
Why did you choose your current smartphone? For its excellent performance? Large internal storage or remarkably long battery life?
Color doesn’t seem to come out in front when choosing a phone. What you may not realize is that color can actually be the deciding factor that pushes you towards that purple iPhone 12 at the last minute.
What’s your favorite color? Have you ever wondered why you prefer that color over others?
We not only see colors, but we feel them as well.
I recently watched a history program where scientists were studying ten-thousand-year-old Mesolithic footprints on a beach in Wales. Imagine if our carbon footprint was to last that long. Like a Terry Gillingham-style foot smashing down on the earth and leaving an indelible print still there ten millennia later.
Reducing our carbon footprint isn’t a new concept, and it’s much easier now for companies and individuals to save energy and erase some of the damage.
Yes, there are fixes to stop your phone, tablet, or laptop battery from draining fast. But not everyone wants to compromise. That’s why portable power banks or battery packs exist.
For those who are new to power banks or have difficulty deciding which kind to get, capacity is the first and foremost thing to consider because it determines how often you can charge your device.
Ever wondered what the best capacity for a power bank is?
I once explained about the numbers printed on power banks. Capacity is one of those complicated technical terms. But the rule is simple: the…
Nowadays, so many of us have phone anxiety — we fear making or receiving calls, forgetting them in a taxi, and there’s the constant threat of dropping our phones.
People with fumble fingers know very well how scary those “heart attack moments” are. Even if you are good at keeping things, accidents happen.
Let’s look at how you can keep your phone free from harm.
Wait. You don’t think you need our tips?
The iPhone 12 series boasts four times more drop-durability than previous models, thanks to the ceramic shield screen. Yes, the ceramic shield is the toughest GLASS to…
Apple has dedicated itself to protecting the planet for many years. In March 2021, the Cupertino company published a press release on the progress of its $4.7 billion Green Bond spend. Once again, Tim Cook urged people to fight climate change together for a greener future.
It’s impressive to see how far Apple has gone in delivering clean energy. However, Apple also received criticism about the work still needed on improving wireless charging energy consumption.
Is wireless charging really that much less efficient than wired charging?
Yes, a wireless charger uses more power to completely charge a smartphone than a…
