It's the end of January, which means new rumors of refreshed/redesigned Apple products are on the horizon. The site, iLounge has shared some new details on what could be Apple's 2013 hardware. let's dive into them, shall we?
- The 5th-generation iPad which is rumored to launch sometime in October, would have a lighter & thinner casing resembling the body style of the iPad mini.
- The 2nd generation iPad mini, which is also slated to be released in October, would have a key component that was missing from the original model: a Retina Display.
- And finally the new iPhone. The 5S is rumored to launch as early as July (but probably not), would bring a faster processor and equipped with a 13MP Sony camera sensor. The outer shell & design would be the same as the iPhone 5.
In the coming year, T-Mobile USA will continue to reinforce its market presence with additions to its rate plan and product portfolio, including Apple products. “Following on from the preceding steps such as the spectrum swap with Verizon, the towers deal with Crown Castle and the transaction with MetroPCS that we have announced, we have now added the final piece to the jigsaw to boost the competitiveness of T-Mobile USA sustainably,” said René Obermann.T-Mobile representative Michelle Taylerson reiterated that the company would bring Apple products to the carrier in 2013. “Additional details will be made available at a later date,” she said. There was no mention of which Apple products T-Mobile would carry, but you'll probably see the iPad and quite possibly the iPhone 6 make it's debut next year...(don't act like you're not expecting it...LOL) What do you think? Are you a T-Mobile user waiting on Apple to make the switch? via

With the anticipation of the Apple media event - October 4th fans are waiting with baited breath for the Apple iPhone 5 announcement & big reveal. But with new technologies emerging, there also comes a time to say goodbye to old technologies as well... It has been rumored that Apple may also discontinue some of its popular products — the iPod classic and iPod shuffle. Citing a source who is not an analyst, but someone familiar with the situation, The Unofficial Apple Weblog claims that the two legendary products are getting cut from Apple’s product portfolio sometime this year. It's hard to believe that it's time to say goodbye to a product and gadget that started them all. Reminiscing about my first iPod back in 2005 (with the clicking wheel and everything) it makes you appreciate technology for how it's created, evolves and ultimately creates more useful & productive technology for future generations. As sad as I am to see the original iPod go, I'm secretly hoping that my unopened iPod shuffle becomes a collector's item one day...*crosses finger* source
We even discussed some great apps for productivity like Keynote as well as an app that busts the "flash" debacle - Skyfire. I even got a couple of cool tips for newer apps that may become "free" sooner than later 🙂 The time spent at the Genius Bar was well worth my time, so much so that I've already signed up for two additional sessions. (In addition to the one on one workshops, if you have any problems or questions regarding your device which may not be covered in the workshop session, if you're lucky the cool folks at Apple will troubleshoot it for you right then and there within the workshop session ((instead of you having to book a separate genius bar appointment.))
