Isn’t the iPad mini 3 already thin enough? For any normal person or company, yes, but this is Apple we are talking about. The latest rumors out of Asia indicate the upcoming iPad mini 4 will take more than a design cue or two from its big brother, iPad Air.

I went outside today for 10 minutes today and then took a 20 minute shower to wash it off. Summer, in all it’s hot sticky glory, has arrived. Better to say inside, where the air is cool and the Apple Rumors hot — here’s the latest on the iPhone 6s, 2015 iMac update and lots o’ iPad dish! Of course, Apple isn’t saying anything.

On a Wednesday? Most Apple developers were expecting the next round of watchOS 2, OS X El Capitan and iOS 9 Beta seeds to arrive next Monday, two weeks after last one. Yet here we are sizing up a long list of new and updated iOS 9 features. Last week’s OS X 10.10.4 and iOS 8.4 updates delivered Apple Music to the general public.

When was the last time an Apple product actually got thicker? I think that would be the iPad 3, the first Retina Apple tablet, a product generally reviled by the critics and loved users. However, if the latest iPhone 6s rumor come true, Apple’s next smartphone update will fatter if only just a little. Tapscape has reported extensively on the upcoming iPhone 6s and the details have remained quite stable over time — updated 12MP…

Two weeks and a day after Apple pushed iOS 9, watchOS 2 and OS X El Capitan — a busy bunch of beavers, aren’t they? — is back with Developer Preview 2, respectively, for each. While little is known about what’s new in these latest seeds, there is a lot of code to get through. WWDC is over, but the real development work is just getting started!

As a rule, Apple leaks information about new, upcoming, unreleased products all the time. However, actually tracking down those leaks is really, really hard.

Yep, according to 9 to 5 Mac, there is a new keyboard layout with iOS 9 beta that indicates Apple is planning a 12.9-inch tablet. The clue is buried deep inside the…

Brothers and sisters, I have good news! As previously rumored, Apple’s upcoming iOS 9, when it ships in September or October, will run on the same iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models that run iOS 8. iOS 9 Compatible iPhones: — iPhone 4s — iPhone 5 — iPhone 5c — iPhone 5s — iPhone 6 — iPhone 6 Plus iOS 9 Compatible iPads: — iPad Air 2 — iPad Air — iPad 2 — iPad 3rd generation — iPad 4th generation — iPad mini 3 — iPad mini…

Apple’s list of iOS 9 compatible devices isn’t public yet, but we can make a highly educated guess as to which models it will include. It has been rumored that Apple’s upcoming iOS 9 will focus on eradicating long-time bugs (ie Wi-Fi), as well as consistency and performance issues. Additionally, it’s expected to run on older Apple smartphones and tablets, going all the way back to 2011’s iPhone 4s and iPad 2. That, of course,…

And, would you believe that the current rumor predicts iOS 9 will not only run but run well on the four-year-old iPad mini and iPhone 4s. Yes, boys and girls, Apple has heard our pleas to focus its development efforts on cleaning up quality and stability issues — call iOS 9 Snow Leopard! Of course, iOS 9 on an iPhone 4s [sic] won’t deliver all of the current features, many of which are hardware dependent…

Tired of waiting for the Apple Television? You ain’t seen nothing yet. The long rumored 12-inch iPad Pro has been the subject of Apple flavored whispers for at least three years and is still going strong!
