It’s imminent. Multiple outlets now report that Apple will announce new video streaming and news subscription services at a celebrity-studded event in Cupertino on March 25. BuzzFeed News cited anonymous sources who said the event would take place at Steve Jobs Theatre and focus on the news service.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman corroborated that report and added that Apple’s long-rumoured streaming video service would also be announced — and with the participation of several Hollywood A-listers to boot. So it sounds like no small affair.

After a massive FaceTime bug that allowed users to potentially listen in on others when using the Group feature surfaced Tuesday, Apple disabled Group FaceTime in a short-term fix to the problem.

An update to address the problem was expected this week, but Apple said today that while it has fixed the issue on its servers, we won’t see an update to re-enable Group FaceTime until next week.

A weird thing happened this year: Apple put its brand new iPhone on sale just a few weeks after release. Well, it wasn’t an outright sale. Faced with poor sales, the company boosted trade-in values of old iPhones so that you could get an iPhone XR for up to $US300 ($426) off. These slumping sales numbers are part of a trend, too. People just aren’t buying as many iPhones as they used to, so Apple has been scrambling to figure out its future.

The new iPad Pro has arrived and it's slimmer than ever. It's also packed with some brand new features that were rumoured for months. Spoiler alert - say goodbye to the Lightning port. Here's everything you need to know.

Last week we asked what the hell the point of the iPad was anyway — and you responded. It seems quite a few of you are still getting real use out of an iPad in 2018, and we’ve collected some of your reasons for firing up a tablet rather than a smartphone or a laptop.

Two months on from the new iPhone launch and it's time for another Apple event at a time that makes Australians cry! But hey, we know some of you hardcore fans are willing to sacrifice sleep to watch the new announcements drop in real time - and this is how you can do it.

There was a small splash of enthusiasm when Logitech recently announced that the $110 Crayon, a more affordable “digital pencil” originally only for education customers, would be available to all iPad users.

Calling it a “pencil” is problematic, though. It can’t do all the same things as a $145 Apple Pencil. And depending on what you want to do with an iPad, that difference can feel like a big deal.
