iPad Mini Pre-Orders are Live! Did you get one?

 

The new iPad Mini is now available to pre-order through the Apple Online Store and Apple Store for iPhone App. The servers are a little buggy but are having no trouble to keep up with the demand. Good Luck to everyone trying to get an iPad Mini and our full review will hit when I get the device. I got the basic 16Gb Wifi in Black that delivers 11/2 instead of the Cellular which has no release date yet. However it is 3:20 AM as of me writing this with school in the morning so I will be saying goodnight to all of you! Good Luck!

Why the iPad Mini makes sense [Opinion]

 

I will be the first to admit I thought the idea of a smaller iPad with around a 7 inch screen was remarkably stupid on Apple’s part. Then after the keynote I thought about some things and the idea kind of grew on me and now I am setting an alarm to go and pre-order one. The thing is the iPad mini makes perfect sense and it took me some time to realize it. You see I am a high school student and I am the tech person and of course I am a fanboy but here is the thing: I would rather have an iPad mini even though some of the specs are worse than competitors and is more expensive. The reason is simple: All my amazing iPad apps and iPhone Apps will run on it.

UPDATE: The Best Way to Pre-Order your iPad Mini

If you are like me you are going to be up at about 2:30AM tomorrow waiting for the store to open to get your iPad mini just the same way you might have done with the iPhone 5. Given the fact this is an Apple device and it is new it means the store will go down or be very slow with everyone trying to pre-order the new device. So here is how you should pre-order the new iPad Mini so you can be done fast and let others have a shot.

The first thing you want to do is enable express checkout with your Apple ID. This will store your credit card and shipping information so you can quickly just review it and press order and be done with it in a matter of seconds (or minutes depending on traffic). Here is how to enable it:

  1. Head to the Apple Store Account Manager. This will allow you to set up express checkout.
  2. After the link loads Scroll to the “Account Settings” in giant letters. Under that you will see “Update Express Checkout” click that and sign in with your Apple ID that you want to purchase the device with.
  3. When you log on you will see your Apple ID, Payment Information, and Shipping information. Make sure those are all filled out.
  4. UPDATE: Under The Payment and shipping information there will be a switch to turn express checkout on. Move the switch to ON

From there you should be done but here is the thing: During the iPhone 5 launch the only way to pre-order the device was through the Apple Store app on your iPhone unless you had luck getting through to the servers. So before the time make sure your device’s store is signed into the Apple ID you used for express checkout. To do that open the app store scroll down till you see your account sign out and sign in with the new. From there you can open the Apple Store App and pre-order easily. You may be able to pre-order in the store but that is if it is online during the chaos. I will be tweeting if the store is up for the first half an hour or less and experiences. Good Luck everyone!

Follow the iPad Mini Event with Apples-Genius

It is that time again where we get to see that magical new device rumored for oh so long come into the wild. Today Apple is expected to announce the iPad Mini, new iMac, and retina 13 inch MacBook Pro. To follow the event you can use our twitter widget to the side (or use this link) or eventually when I can I will start posting on the site. Also you can use the Apple TV to stream the event but there is no word if you will be able to do that from the Mac, iPad, or iPhone yet.

iPad Mini and Retina 13inch MacBook Pro to be announced the 23rd

20121015-135234.jpg

I am late on this yes but I haven’t been feeling well if you follow my twitter so stick with me here.

The new iPad mini is set to be announced soon. Actually October 23rd according to many sources and it is actually what you think it is a smaller version of the iPad. There is no say if the iPad mini is going to have a retina display but you will have a 7inch display for your viewing pleasure. Also of course you will have the new lightning connector currently shipping with the new iPods and iPhones. Of course the new iPad Mini will have LTE support much like it’s big brother but will run you some extra cash for the extra antennas. Of course if you want the wifi one you can always pick that one up for a lower price.

Along with the notorious iPad Mini rumored ever sense the iPad first came out we should see a 13inch retina MacBook Pro. We saw the first retina MacBook Pro come out a couple of months ago and it has a gorgeous screen USB 3.0 and a new thinner DVD-less design sort of like the MacBook Air. The MacBook Air is being worked on at Apple and if we don’t see it with the new Pros then we are going to have to wait till the summer.

So both of these devices are expected to make their way into the official world on October 23rd and when they go on sale is anyone’s guess.

New iPad Mini mockups show possible design

Ahead of Apple’s special october event to show off the “iPad Mini” reports are coming out showing what the device could like like. The images appear to be close to the iPad Mini design information we have been hearing. Note that the dock is the new 9-pin connector we have been seeing on iPhone mockups. The device shows little bezel around the right and left of the screen. However I still see the iPad mini as pointless it could be a good idea for someone who would want a small e-reader.

The iPad mini is rumored to be 7 inches and to be announced at it’s own event in October. The device is rumored to take rumored characteristics from the New iPhone which is rumored to be announced September 12th and go on sale September 21st.
