It's the first Apple product with an A14 chipset. Nathan Ingraham5h ago 41Comments 280Shares Apple Apple’s most recent iPad Air is about a year and a half old, which means it’s just old enough for the company to replace. The company revealed the 2020 iPad Air at today’s “Time Flies” event, and as expected it has a lot in common with the iPad Pro — at least at first glance. But first, a quick recap: Because of how Apple has chopped and changed its model names, this is the fourth-generation iPad Air, although only the second in its current form. It currently exists as the middle-child between the more affordable iPad and the iPad Pro, with better internals and a nicer screen than the base model. This year, however, it seems like the gap between the...

MARCO LANCASTERSEPTEMBER 15, 2020 This is a very strange September for the very strange year of 2020. The reason? Well, we’ve reached the second half of the month and there’s no signal of a new Apple iPhone in the corner. Well, this is not a surprise since a number of reports already confirmed that this year Apple will be opting for a Q4 release for the new iPhone 12 models. There are a number of reasons to justify the delay, but the COVID-19 consequences certainly played a big role in this decision. To not leave its fans without a good event in September, the company decided to unveil today a new set of smartwatches – the Apple Watch 6 and the 6 SE along with a new iPad and our first glimpse in the upcoming iPhone chipset the A14 Bionic. The company also brought b...

KONGSI ARTIKELShareTweet KUALA LUMPUR: Dakwaan menyatakan undang-undang Islam boleh memecahbelahkan keharmonian masyarakat majmuk di negara ini adalah tidak berasas sama sekali, kata Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri (Hal Ehwal Agama), Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri. Zulkifli berkata jika rakyat pelbagai kaum dan agama dapat memahami serta menghayati Perlembagaan Persekutuan serta sistem perundangan Islam di Malaysia, kerajaan yakin perundangan Islam bukanlah suatu isu yang sensitif. "Undang-undang Islam itu sendiri, sifatnya inklusif dan progresif yang sesuai dengan peredaran masa. "Ini kerana prinsip-prinsipnya bersifat menyantuni semua kaum dan golongan masyarakat sama ada orang Islam dan orang bukan Islam," katanya ketika menggulung perbahasan usul menjunjung...
