Rent an iPad Pro today

The iPad Pro 2024 is on the horizon, sparking excitement with its promise of cutting-edge technology and enhanced features. Here’s everything we’ve gathered about what to expect.

The much-anticipated launch of the iPad Pro 2024 has faced delays, but it seems the wait is nearly over. According to DigiTimes, citing sources from Apple’s suppliers, the new iPad Pro, alongside the next-generation iPad Air, was initially set for a March release. Despite several postponements, possibly to align with the release of the new M3 MacBook Air, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg indicates that Apple has now locked in a release week of May 6.

Price Expectations for the iPad Pro 2024

With the introduction of OLED displays, the iPad Pro 2024 is expected to see a significant price increase:

  • Yeux1122 (X leaker) suggests a starting price of about $1,499 for the new models, which nearly doubles the current starting prices of $799 (11-inch) and $1,099 (12.9-inch).
  • DigiTimes prediction, considered more reliable, forecasts a $160 increase, suggesting new prices might be:
    • 11-inch – $999
    • 12.9-inch – $1,259

These prices, while steep, align more realistically with typical Apple pricing strategies.

Top 5 Features to Look Forward to in the iPad Pro 2024

The upcoming iPad Pro is expected to deliver several significant upgrades:

  • New OLED panel: Offers enhanced brightness and a sharper display.
  • Relocated webcam: Optimized for video calls in landscape orientation.
  • M3 chip: Provides faster processing speeds.
  • Thinner chassis: For a sleeker, more refined design.
  • Slimmer bezels: Increases screen real estate without enlarging the device footprint.

Transitioning to an OLED display not only improves visual appeal with better contrast and color depth but also enhances battery efficiency. Insights from 9to5Mac, based on Apple’s software in the iPadOS 17.5 beta, confirm the shift to OLED technology.

In addition to hardware improvements, rumors suggest new accessories like an updated Apple Pencil with enhanced gesture controls and a redesigned Magic Keyboard.

Stay Tuned for the Release

With the projected release date of May 6 fast approaching, we are on the cusp of confirming these features and more. Stay connected for in-depth updates and coverage on these exciting new Apple devices.

iPad Air 4

November 5th, 2020 | Posted by Brian Kubala in Apple | iPad | Rental | Tablet | Tablet Rentals | Technology News - (0 Comments)

Introduced in September and formally released in October 2020, the iPad Air 4 is the latest tablet release from Apple. With a more modern design than the earlier generation, the iPad Air 4 features a similar design to the iPad pro, including a nearly edge-to-edge, 10.9” liquid retina LED display. The newest tablet from Apple also brings compatibility with features not seen on the previous generation of iPad Air, including compatibility with the new Magic Keyboard, the second-generation Apple Pencil, and USB-C. Let’s take a closer look at the new iPad Air 4.

 

Display and Design

As noted above, the iPad Air 4 boasts a 10.9” liquid retina LED display, similar to the one found in the current iPad Pro, however the display is capped at 60Hz, which is the same found in the previous generation of iPad Air. As far as the display, the 2360 x 1640 resolution absolutely delivers when it comes to the viewing experience. With the wide gamut of P3 color, the iPad Air 4 is able to offer better colors and contrast than the standard iPad. The display also features an anti-reflective coating, True Tone, and full lamination. The laminated display is especially stunning for those using the Apple Pencil, as the content appears closer to the screen. This simulates the feeling of writing on paper.

Also new to this generation of iPad Air, flat edges and slimmer bezels. This design was introduced in Apple’s 3rd generation of iPad Pro tablets, and it also being used on the iPhone 12. Paired with the nearly borderless screen, the iPad Air 4 feels like a modern tablet. Another bonus? Color options are available. The iPad Air 4 is available in silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and blue.

 

Performance

When compared to the regular iPad or even the previous generations of the iPad Air, the iPad Air 4 doesn’t do anything special that others can’t. However, moving to the A14 Bionic processor, the same chip found in the iPhone 12, the iPad Air 4 has a performance boost over the previous generation. According to Apple, this processor has double the graphics performance over the A12 processor, and is about 20% faster than the A13.

The iPad Air 4 features a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, perfect for those FaceTime calls in a time when we are relying on our tablets and phones to keep us connected to our friends, families, and coworkers. The new iPad Air 4 also boasts a 12MP camera that is capable of filming at 4K video. This is perfect for those who are film editors looking to do some work remotely, or students who are looking for a budget friendly tablet to learn the basics in the film editing industry.

Final Thoughts

With improved performance, better design, and a more beautiful display, the iPad Air 4 is worth a second look for those considering a tablet. It is a perfect fit for a mid-tier tablet between the regular iPad and the iPad Pro for those who are looking for performance, while still wanting to stay budget friendly.

Features Brought in with iOS 11

December 15th, 2017 | Posted by rreeve in Apple | iPad - (0 Comments)

iOS11(1)

While iOS 11 launched in September, there are a few features that you may not know about yet. Whether you are using an iPad rental or your own personal iPad, here are three features that will improve your iPad user experience.

1. Augmented Reality Compatibility

Pokémon GO is ok, and for what it was trying to do when it launched, it worked well. But Pokémon Go is just a launching point into a sea of possibilities for the future of augmented reality, and Apple seems to agree with this belief by including ARKit in the iOS 11 update

To be honest with you, the only AR application that I have found that personally interests me is the Ikea Place app, which helps you visualize what furniture would look like in your home by visualizing it for you. There are other AR applications on the App Store of course, and you should definitely try them out if given the chance! Hopefully Apple’s ARKit will help AR to develop into something greater than what it currently is.

 2. Apple Pay Upgrades

The iOS 11 update brought Apple Pay compatibility to messages. So now you don’t have to use third party applications or use cash to pay back a friend or coworker who went out to get your lunch. Once your Apple Pay account receives the funds, you can transfer it back to your bank account or use it in the App Store.

3. More Apple Pencil Support

For the artsy, or those who use Apple Pencil for other uses, there are some nice improvements in this update. Users can now draw images in an inline drawing mode, meaning users can draw images between paragraphs of text. The Notes App has also been improved to be better able to find handwritten notes.

These are just a few of the features added to improve the user experience in iOS 11. There are a lot of other articles on the web if you are seeking additional information about features added to iOS 11. Happy Holidays!

Unless you watch Apple’s activities with extreme diligence, you might not have noticed that the tech giant’s flagship tablet line has had an unannounced price increase. While this price increase won’t really affect you or your business at all in the immediate future if you are getting an iPad rental, this could affect you if you were planning on just buying an iPad.

Apple iPads of various colors.

Fortunately, not all iPad devices were affected by Apple’s price increase. Only the iPad Pro line saw an overnight increase in price of $50 per iPad. The only iPad Pro definitely not affected by this price increase was the 64GB memory model of both the 10.5-inch and the 12.9-inch iPad Pros.

 

The original price of the 10.5 Inch 256GB iPad Pro was $749, which has now been increased to the new price of $799. The 10.5 inch 512GB model has been increased from $949 to a cool $999. These are just the pricings of the WiFi only models by the way. If you want cellular compatible devices you’ll have to pay an extra $130 – that applies for both 10.5 inch and 12.9 inch models.

 

Now let’s look at the increase in the already more expensive 12.9 inch Wifi only models. The original price of the 12.9 inch 256GB model was $899, which increased to $949. The original price of the 12.9 inch 512GB model was $1099, and that price increased to $1149.

Apple iPads of various colors.

Once again, I just want to state that these prices are for the WiFi only models of the iPad Pro line, and that this is obviously before any tax has been calculated into the sale price.

 

Apple did not announce this price increase officially, or give an official statement saying why they did it. As internet users are prone to do, some people have made speculations as to why Apple increased the price of the iPad Pro line.

 

The best theory for the price increase that I have seen so far is that Apple is paying more for NAND and DRAM memory chips due to a short supply – caused by tech manufacturers buying up chips in advance of large technology products, and possibly also caused by the increase in the usage of SSD memory among desktop and laptop users – and that instead of taking a profit loss, Apple is passing the bill on to the consumer.

 

Whether or not you think that Apple would hand the bill off to their customers, at the end of the day it does not change the fact that the iPad Pro line has increased in price

The Lightest Tablets on the Market

July 12th, 2017 | Posted by rreeve in Rental | Tablet - (0 Comments)

If you are getting a tablet rental, you are probably doing so because you need a device which is compact, easy to use, and lightweight. There are a whole lot of tablets out on the market, and depending on whether or not you will need a specific operating system for your event, there may be a whole lot of tablets for you to choose from. One way to narrow down your search for the perfect tablet rental is by searching through tablets by weight. Since having a tablet which weighs five pounds isn’t very practical in most occasions, this article is dedicated to showing you some of the lightest tablets out on the market – or specifically tablets which all weigh under one pound.

Sony Xperia Z4

A picture of the Sony Xperia Touch.

The Sony Xperia Z4 is large but light, weighing less than a pound in both WiFi only and WiFi + cellular data variants. The Xperia has the largest display size in this article, coming in at 10.1 inches. If you are interested in this device, keep in mind that it runs on Android so if you have software which requires iOS, consider the next tablet on the list.

iPad Mini 4

A picture of several iPad Mini 4s

While Apple’s new iPad Pro is quite powerful, it weighs in just over one pound so I couldn’t put it on this list. However, if you need a lightweight iOS device the iPad Mini 4 may suit your iPad rental needs. The Mini 4 comes equipped with a 7.9 inch retina display and weighs .66 pounds for the WiFi only model and .67 pounds for the WiFi + cellular data model.

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7”

A picture of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

Weighing in at .95 pounds on the WiFi only variant, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 narrowly squeezes into this article. The S3 boasts a 9.7 inch Super AMOLED display. Samsung has been testing around with some new ideas with their tablets, and the S3 comes with a stylus called the S Pen and can also be coupled with a keyboard.

 

HP Pro Tablet 608 G1

The HP Pro Tablet 608 is what some might dub an “oldie but a goodie”. The 608 released back in 2015, but it is one of the only Windows tablets that I could find which weighs less than a pound. The 608 comes equipped with a 7.86 inch display and a version of Windows 10.

It is no secret that Apple has a neglectful relationship with its MacBook Air models, and two years ago Apple discontinued the smaller of the two MacBook Air models. While I still strongly believe that Apple’s new 12 inch MacBook is the replacement of Apple’s MacBook Air line, Apple’s 2017 iPad Pro may be the second runner-up for the title of “MacBook Air Killer”.

iPadPro2017

Apple’s 2017 refresh of the iPad Pro features two iPad Pro models – a 10.5 inch display iPad Pro and a 12.9 inch display iPad Pro. Although extreme portability and lightweightness were two of the MacBook Air’s main selling points, the small size of the iPad Pro 10.5 inch model alone isn’t enough for it to replace a fully armed and operational laptop – which the MacBook Air is.

 

So besides being light and small, what would an iPad Pro rental have going for it? In terms of battery life the iPad Pro’s are pretty average in comparison to the tablets of other tech giants. Apple claims that both iPad Pro models have a 10 hour battery life, giving them an extra hour of operation above the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and the 11-inch MacBook Airs of 2015, but two hours less than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, which Samsung claims has a 12 hour battery life.

iPadPro2017(2)

The display on both models of the iPad Pro are better than the display equipped on the current models of MacBook Air. Both iPad Pro models come equipped with retina displays, which the Air lacks. The 10.5 inch iPad Pro has a 2224-by-1668 resolution while the larger 12.9 inch iPad Pro has a resolution of 2732-by-2048. Both models display 264 pixels per inch.

The most impressive aspect of the new iPad Pro models is the A10X Fusion chip. The A10X is the processor and graphics card running the iPad Pro, and it is an impressive piece of hardware for a tablet. The A10X allows the iPad Pro to outperform some laptops in performance, but currently the iPad Pro is limited by its operating system. Once iOS 11 releases, the iPad Pro will become a much more productive device, as the operating system update has a strong focus on increasing the amount of multitasking capable for users, and it will also allow you to search your tablet files extensively, making the iOS more laptop like than mobile device oriented.

Conferences are an amazing way to convey vital information to a large number of employees, peers, or even trainees. If you want the most out of your conference, you’ll want more than just projectors. While projectors are fine and dandy for effectively presenting through a keynote speaker, you may want to add to the experience by getting a large quantity tablet rental to use custom business or event applications.

There are many operating systems for tablets which can accommodate your conference needs, which is why we will be covering three tablets you can use for your next conference, instead of one.

1. iPad Pro

Whether you need to rent the 9.7 inch or the 12.9 inch display, Apple’s iPad Pro is an essential tool for holding a conference if your business applications are based in Apple’s operating systems. The iPad Pro is both stylish and efficient, as is to be expected by Apple. The iPad Pro boasts the following specs and more:

  • At least 32 GB
  • A9X third-generation chip with 64-bit computer compatibility
  • HD Video Capability
  • Up to 10 hour battery life

ipad-pro

2. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Despite the fact that Samsung products have been taking (outputting is a more appropriate word) heat lately, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a top-of-the-line tablet. Operating on the Android Lollipop OS, this tablet is capable of displaying all of the vital powerpoints, excel documents, and word documents you would expect your event tablet rentals to display. Some impressive specs of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 include:

  • At least 32 GB
  • MicroSD capable of storing up to 128 GB
  • Exynos 5433 AP chip
  • Choice between 9.7 inch and compact 8.0 inch displays

samsung-galaxy-tab-s22

3. Microsoft Surface Pro 4

Microsoft’s competitor in the tablet arena is a powerhouse. The Surface Pro 4 is extremely thin, but does not sacrifice power for size. This tablet runs Windows 10 Pro, and can easily let its specs speak for itself. This tablet has:

  • SSD memory starting at 128GB minimum
  • Battery life of over 5 hours
  • Intel m3,i5, i7, or 6th Gen Intel Core Processor
  • 4GB RAM minimum
  • Headset Jackmicrosoft-surface-pro

Whether you need iOS, Android Lollipop, or Windows, your conference can effectively integrate programs on any of these operating systems with a tablet rental. The three devices listed above are tried and true, and will be capable of powering through the obstacles your conference applications or software may present.

iOS 10’s Hot New Features

July 5th, 2016 | Posted by rreeve in Apple | iPad | iPhone - (0 Comments)

Last month Apple announced that iOS 10 will be releasing this fall and unveiled many of the bells and whistles which will accompany the operating system upon its release. Apple announced 10 new features for iOS10 which they thoroughly delved into during their presentation at the Worldwide Developers Conference, but we can give you a basic rundown of what iOS 10 will do for you.

Clipboard01

New Looks

Apple has decided to update several visual aspects of your device with the release of iOS 10. Some fancy new graphics you can look forward to seeing include a redesigned lockscreen and a heavily improved Messages app. Improvements for the Messages app include videos sent inside messages can now be seen and played inside of the Messages app, and emojis will be displayed 3 times larger.

More Interactivity

iOS 10 is heavily focused on improving user experience through interactivity. To improve user interaction Apple has done a number of things. Most notably, Apple has opened Siri for developers, meaning you should expect some of the top apps, such as Twitter or Instagram, to start integrating Siri into their design. Apple has also taken several much smaller steps to ensure an increase in user interaction, including:

  1. More notifications for the lockscreen and more things to do in apps from the lockscreen
  2. QuickType can help you complete your messages in a more timely manner.
  3. The Homekit app will now have house accessory support for accessories like security cameras and doorbells.
  4. Your device will now be able to show you where you’ve taken your pictures on a world map, and will also be able to sort people into individual photo albums through facial recognition.
  5. Apple News will present you with articles based on articles you have already read.

Higher Quality of Life

Apple has also announced several quality of life improvements which will release alongside iOS 10.Two such improvements are a redesign of the Apple News app and transcripts for voicemail messages. Apple plans to clean up the news app’s interface and give it easier to sort categories.

Apple unveiled many exciting things at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference which took place last week. One extremely important announcement was Swift Playgrounds.

Before discussing Swift Playgrounds, it is important to know what Swift is. For those of you who do not know, Swift is a programming language created and used by Apple that runs on many operating systems, including macOS, iOS, and Linux.

Swift Playgrounds is an application that has the goal of teaching Apple’s Swift coding while still being fun for the user. To accomplish this goal, Swift Playgrounds presents itself in the style of a video game.

Apple plans to use Swift coding for many years to come, and as a result Swift Playgrounds has the potential to be both a fun and extremely practical application.

Swift Playgrounds is planned to fully release this fall and will be available to download for free for all iPhone and iPad users. For additional information on Swift Playgrounds click here.
