We’ve all seen iOS 7 running on the iPhone 5 now, but Apple’s still holding back showing it off on the iPad… at least, everywhere except on their site, where the eagle-eyed boys over at iGen.fr spotted Apple’s official shots of iOS 7 running on the iPad 2, iPad 3 & 4, and iPad mini.
There’s even a shot of what the official Music app looks like [Read More...]
I reviewed the Acase Collatio for iPhone 5 back in May, and I mentioned it was one of the best leather wallet cases I’d tested to date. It looked terrific, its build quality was excellent, and it was nicely priced. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Acase’s leather iPad mini case, then.

If you’ve been waiting patiently for an iPad Mini version of LifeProof‘s rugged, waterproof iPad Nuud case, you’re not going to get one â€” instead, LifeProof is going to enlarge its Fre iPhone case for the iPad Mini. what this means is you won’t have the Nuud’s completely bare screen, and instead will have a thin screen cover over your iPad Mini’s screen.

At $ 329, the iPad mini is Apple’s cheapest iPad by far… but compared to $ 199 and $ 249 Android tablets, it’s still pricy in the 7-inch markets.
That might change, though. A new rumor suggests that Apple will release the iPad mini 2 for the low, low price of $ 249.
The report comes from Citi Research, who don’t seem to have a lot of evidence to go by. [Read More...]
Two new iPad mini keyboard cases from Zagg today: A super-thin magnetic cover and a thicker stick-on “folio” case, similar to the Pro Plus case for the regular-sized iPad only with a top cover too. And both, amazingly, are backlit. For me, it’s a shootout between Zagg and Logitech when it comes to choosing the best iPad keyboards. I remain unconvinced by either of their offerings for the iPad mini, though, as they’re just [Read More...]
Before you say anything: Yes, I know this is a case for the Kindle and not for an iPad or other Apple device. But I don’t care because a) it’s super cool and should be made for the iPad mini and b) you probably own a Kindle anyway. It’s called the Wingo, and it adds [...]

What would a budget or mid-range iPhone mini look like with a radical new vision of iOS 7 installed on it, fronted by that skeuomorph-hating design perfectionist, Jony Ive?
Martin Hajek — one of the most talented Apple concept designers around — wanted to know, so he created a new budget iPhone concept that features bighter colors, a smaller screen, and a plastic backshell inspired by the iPad mini, then “installed” DÃ¡maso BenÃtezâ€™ “really nice [Read More...]
