Some high quality photos of what's purportedly the next-generation iPad 5 have surfaced, and they show off the same space gray finish Apple introduced with the iPhone 5s back in September. The photos, including the above image, were posted by Sonny Dickson: We’ve gotten our hands on a number of sharp high-res images of the Space Grey 5th-gen iPad casing and front panel. Notably, it shows off the highly anticipated slimmer iPad-mini like design it is expected to launch with. They match the design iMore reported back in January, and what we expect to see on October 22, along with a new iPad mini and new Macs, including the newly designed Mac Pro. Excited yet?

You’ve chosen to get a new iPad. That is a major investment, and it can help you personally or in your business as well. To get all you can out of using an iPad, there are various things you must learn first. Read on to get a great basic education in the iPad. There is a way that you can check all the running applications that you have at a given time. Double-clicking on your Home button will show all the running apps in the bar at your screen’s bottom. Just click the app you wish to switch to, if you so desire. Make this bar disappear by making a downward swipe on your screen. Vpn Connection All you have to do is utilize a VPN network to get to the remote servers. If you have a need to connect your iPad through a VPN connection, you need to enable the VPN feature available through Settings and Network. Before establishing a VPN connection, you will need to provide credentials such as a username or server address. Talk to the network admin if you need the information required. Does it annoy you whenever the iPad asks if you want to join any wifi network it has detected? This can be turned off in settings. If you don’t want to be prompted again, just select Wi-Fi and the final page option to turn it off. Which apps are running? A lot of the apps on your tablet can keep running while you work on other things. Double clicking the Home button will let you know everything that is currently running. The apps in use will appear on the bottom of the screen. When you are finished, swipe down to make the bar disappear. Many people struggle to type on tablets, but it gets easier over time. You can utilize the speech recognition abilities of the device. Depress the Home button two times, then touch the microphone icon. After you finish speaking, push that icon again, and what you’ve said will appear as text. The little beeps every time you get an email can be quite annoying. It is possible to shut this sound off. Just select your Settings button and then General after that. Under the General tab, select Sounds. This should display all of your sound options, including the ability to mute or damped new email notifications. Lost Ipad Wouldn’t you like to track a lost iPad? Enter Settings and then look at iCloud. Insert your Apple ID. Once you do this, the bottom of your screen will flash “Find My iPad” and tap it to turn the feature on. This will allow you to find a lost iPad by going to iCloud.com. Taking a screenshot on an iPad is very simple. Press the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously. This will take a screenshot and save it with your other pictures. There is finally a way to silence your iPad very quickly. The original iPad didn’t have a specific mute button. With the advent of iOS 4.3, it became possible to mute the audio easily. To mute immediately, just depress the volume-down tool and hold. An iPad is an amazing musical tool, but are you aware of the podcasts? These are short (or sometimes long) audio clips on a variety of topics. You might try listening to a podcast instead of music on your way to work. You will be sure to find a topic of interest to you. Auto-brightness can help you keep your battery charged. Your device is able to sense the strength of the lighting in any given room and adjust itself to fit your lighting needs. This is a good way to get more from your battery. You can enable this option via the “Brightness and Wallpaper” settings. Some of the applications that come loaded on your iPad may be useless to you. However, it’s hard to delete some of these. You can put them away in a folder and they will not get in your way. This helps keep them out of your way. An iPad has many uses, both business and personal. If you want to get the most out of this device, you have [...]

Task app Todoist has just updated both their iPhone and iPad clients with an all new interface and design to better fit in with the look and feel of iOS 7. The update also brings background syncing support so your todo list can stay in sync even when you're not using it. I took a look at Todoist a while back and came away most impressed with the amount of platforms it supports. If you're a platform jumper, Todoist could possibly be a good option. The update to Todoist essentially brings a new design and background sync. Free users of Todoist will get 6 background syncs a day while Premium users get live sync throughout the day. Premium memberships for Todoist are just shy of $30 a year and can be obtained through an in-app purchase. Aside from live sync, you also get the ability to search and manage your tasks better within the app as well as the addition of other features such as adding notes to tasks. You can inbox tasks and sort them into categories just as you can with many other task apps. The unfortunate downside to Todoist is that there are currently a lot of other task apps such as Wunderlist that offer a lot of Todoist's premium features for free. Unless you really need a ridiculous amount of cross platform support, there are other options out there that won't cost you $30 a year. If you happen to use Todoist, let us know in the comments what made you choose it over other similar offerings. Free - Download Now

One of the things you are paying for when buying an iPad is a higher quality touch experience with faster response times. Agawi has published their touchscreen latency analysis findings and the iPad Mini has landed on top. The test was performed using a system called Touchscope and all tablets are prepared using the same software and methodology. The results (shown above) put the iPad Mini ahead of the pack but not wildly ahead of the 2nd through 4th places. The speeds are measured in milliseconds and the results are based on a minimum of 50 tests. The question you are likely asking is about how much difference the various speeds make when using a tablet. I found a video that demonstrates the differences and I was surprised how much even 50 ms can make. While the Galaxy Tab is almost unusable, the Surface and Kindle Fire are both relatively similar to the iPad. Even the iPad has room for improvement and it is likely that it will continue to improve. The iPad 5 recently tested at 72 ms which is just under the iPad Mini, but it will be interesting to see if there is any improvement with the new iPhone 5s. These tests are performed under optimal circumstances but that isn’t how most of us use these these devices. I bought a Kindle Fire for my kids a while ago and they hated playing Angry Birds on it because it was harder to play than on the iPad and when I tested it out I noticed the touch experience was much different than on our iPad. It’s hard to say which other apps were running or how much memory was tied up with other tasks. As a musician who uses the iPad to perform and as a mixing tool, having the fastest response time possible is a big deal. Latency isn’t an issue when I play a note on my real piano but it is when I play a virtual piano on my iPad. I expect the response speed to continue to improve with each generation of iPad until we eventual reach sub-millisecond speeds. » Related posts: iPad Mini Drop Tests Already Pouring In Android Tablets May Finally Begin to Outsell iPads this Year Fight!

If you picked up a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c for use on the Vodafone network, and you happen to live in Liverpool or Glasgow, you're in luck. In the coming weeks Vodafone will be flipping the switch on their new 4G LTE network in these cities, with Manchester to follow soon after. Liverpool will go live on October 17 while Glasgow will follow on October 24. Once Manchester follows at an unspecified date, Vodafone's total cities covered will stand at 9, but will include the biggest cities in the UK. Vodafone also boasts that coverage within London is continuing to grow outwards, with 80 towns and districts within the capital now covered by Vodafone 4G LTE. If you're already rocking the 4G from Vodafone on your iPhone, drop us a line in the comments and let us know how you're finding it. Source: Vodafone

We humans are social characters by nature. We gather with friends, we pair off with mates, we love and care about our families to the point of being irrational. Modern technology enables those bonds to transcend space and time, but they add a whole new layer of complication to our lives. The same decision making processes that we have to apply to making our own smartphone purchasing decisions have to be applied to purchasing smartphones, picking cellular plans, and signing onto cloud services. Except more so, because you're going to have to deal with these people on a regular basis. So what's the best way to set up your family's comprehensive computing ecosystem? Are these shared data plans that the carriers have hoisted up on us a good deal for us, or the carrier? And are our favorite manufacturers, carriers, and developers treating everybody in our families fairly? Let's get the conversation started!

Google's $35 Chromecast dongle may have limited functionality right now, but it's still flying off the shelves. At least, it is in the U.S, the only officially supported Chromecast country right now. If you've picked one up to use with your iPhone or Mac, there's a couple of different ways to get the dongle set up, including the recently released iPhone application. It's this we're focusing on today, so here's how to get up and running with your Chromecast using your iPhone. Once you've followed the instructions in the box to plug in and turn on your Chromecast, launch the Chromecast application (download links at the bottom of this post) and tap "setup a new Chromecast." The first thing you'll be prompted to do, is to head into the Settings app on your iPhone, then into WiFi and find the network with the unique name of your Chromecast. Tap to connect, and you'll see a screen declaring a new Chromecast has been found, and that the next stage is to choose a network to connect to and to name your device. You'll also be informed to switch your TV to the correct HDMI input, and will be presented with a code to verify you're heading in the right direction. Once the app has found the Chromecast, you're then directed towards connecting to your home WiFi network to enter your credentials, and to name this particular Chromecast. Give it a recognizable name, especially if you'll have more than one in your home, as it's the only way you'll be able to tell which one you're sending stuff too. After that, you're good to go, and the setup process will take care of the rest. Once the process completes, you're all set, and you'll see the screen shown here. If you have more than one Chromecast, you'll see a list of them all here, and you can also access basic settings too such as reset and reboot, renaming, changing WiFi network details and changing the time zone. All content is dealt with through individual apps such as YouTube and Netflix. And that's all there is to it. Using your iPhone, setting up a Chromecast is a breeze!

Cameo for iPhone is a new way to create, edit, and share video projects complete with professional looking effects. You can also collaborate with your friends that are using Cameo in real time to create group projects. To start using Cameo you can either start recording video or import clips from your existing Camera Roll. Clips in Cameo are limited to six seconds to ensure you get a good mix of footage and can hold the viewer's attention. You can move clips around and order them however you'd like. Cameo also comes standard with free fonts and effects that you can add to your videos. When it comes time to share your video, you can easily download 720p HD video to your iPhone and share it wherever you like. Alternatively, you can also share directly from Cameo to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. 720p HD video embeds are also supported for most blogs and websites. Since Cameo stores your videos in the cloud, they won't eat up space on your actual iPhone unless you choose to download them. Let's not forget that Cameo is also a community. You can follow your friends, comment on their creations, and collaborate with them live. This is the most unique feature of Cameo and in my opinion, what really makes it stand out from other options. When it comes to creating videos, everyone involved has a different perspective on things and can grab footage that maybe you missed. Cameo makes sure that no matter who captured a particular moment, you can easily bring them all together in one place. Free - Download Now

Although nothing official has been announced, it is a matter of weeks, maybe even days, before the first set of tech journalists get their special invitation to Apple’s next event. Of course, there is no proof of what the next generation of iPad and iPad mini will look like, but thanks to a plethora of high-quality leaked images of the supposed new tablets, we have an idea of what to expect. There are a few features that we hope are more than just rumors. A few months ago, we made a list of  things we’d like to see in the new iPad. Now that the reveal is, hopefully, only weeks away, we’ve added some features and removed some others. Smaller Size We’ve seen a lot of pictures, and even a detailed video of the supposed iPad 5’s front panel and back casing. If the parts are real, it appears that the full-sized Apple tablet will be slightly smaller, even though the actual screen will remain the exact same size. Thanks to a slimmer bezel, Apple may be able to shave off about a half-inch in the overall width of the larger tablet. Some rumors have even spread that some people can grasp the screen with one hand. I may have to get rid of my favorite iPad case, but it will be worth it for a slimmer tablet size. A7 Processor Chip This feature is practically a guarantee. Apple announced the newest system-on-a-chip for the iPhone 5S. Based on all past launches of the iPad other than the first, the iPad always follows the iPhone with the newest chip technology. The A7 processor chip sports 64-bits of color, speed, and capacity. The superfast chip is being called the fastest processor in the world with speeds are twice as fast as the A6 processor chip. It would be a mistake for Apple to launch the next generation of iPad without the A7 chip. This feature would make high quality, full-featured games a breeze on the iPad. New Colors When Apple launched the new iPhone 5s, not only did they add a third gold colored option, but they also changed the white and black models to silver and “Space Gray.” It is highly unlikely that we will see the brightly colored plastic backing that the iPhone 5c sports. However, it is reasonable to assume that Apple will offer the gold option, at least on the iPad mini. We’ve seen pictures and the new color looks pretty good. If Apple does blow us away with a new brightly colored backing, it will only be to cover a remodeled version of the fourth-generation iPad, which will likely go down in price when the new iPad launches. Better Camera Technology Apple announced some amazing new technology in the iPhone 5s’ camera app. It is reasonable to hope that the new iPad will also feature these great features. If the iPhone 5s is an indication of the upgraded technology, the new iPad will have a 15 percent larger image sensor with additional low-light capability in the form of 1.5 microns. Plus, we may finally get a flash. This version may even come with two different colored LED lights. Don’t forget the ability to record in slow motion. The burst mode takes up to 10 frames per second and lets you choose the best one for near perfect action shots. New Display Technology It hasn’t been talked about for a few months, but IGZO technology was the rumor of the day back in the Spring of 2013. Supposedly, Sharp was working with Apple to add LED backlight and IGZO technology. If this rumor were to actually turn out to be true, it is possible that the more efficient display panel would reduce energy consumption for Apple’s tablet, making it possible to extend the battery life, or use a smaller battery, which would reduce the weight of the iPad. These are some of the biggest features we’d like to see in the next generation of iPad. What would make you want to upgrade to the new iPad? » Related posts: Five Features We Hope The Fifth-Generation iPad Will Have Rumor of the Day: iPad 5 Event to be Held on Oct. 15 iPhone 5S Prototype Points to New A7 Processor for Next Wave of iPads
