Apple plans to introduce low-cost iPad

iPhone SE 2

Apple can get ready to launch new devices in the coming weeks. Last week, the company sent out invitations to an event held in Chicago at the end of the month. Here’s what we can see or not see at the event:

Cheap iPad

It’s been almost a year since Apple launched the update of its main line of iPad, as a result of which the world received a brand new iPad at a completely new price. iPad $ 2017 for $ 330 was the best alternative to Android-tablets, offering excellent performance, long battery life and a beautiful design from Apple.

Will Apple be able to provide an even cheaper iPad targeting students? Some rumors say that it can, because the company is focusing on educational projects. It is assumed that at the upcoming event Apple is announcing a cheap iPad and a more expensive tablet model, most likely an updated iPad Pro.

Updated MacBook Air

Less likely, but it is possible that the MacBook Air can be upgraded. For months Apple plans to release an updated, low-priced MacBook Air.

Although we expect to see the new MacBook Air in 2018, Apple’s schedule is not entirely suitable for this event.

iPhone SE 2

The least likely possibility is the announcement of the iPhone SE 2. Although we’ve heard rumors about a new budget iPhone for more than a year, it’s unlikely that we’ll see that Apple will announce it at the upcoming event.

The main reason why it is unlikely that Apple will launch the updated iPhone at the event is that Apple does not sell the iPhone as an educational tool. Also at this event is not expected a new iPhone, because earlier this year, Apple shareholders expressed serious concern about the dependence of children on smartphones.

While we expect Apple to announce the new iPad, it’s certainly possible that the technology giant will surprise us with a completely new product. In any case, PDALife will provide you with all the details of this event when the time comes.

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact – phones have a fresh design


New Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact

Sony introduced the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. Smartphones, frankly, I really liked. Although, of course, people were divided into two camps, most of them did not like the apparatus, which, in my opinion, is strange.


And strangely for one simple reason: the web was constantly scolded by Sony for its lack of design changes. The company has changed the design, and now many require the return of the old design. What is the logic, friends?

Devays look very interesting and original and are a mixture of HTC U11 and Xperia XZ1. Especially will be pleasant to many XZ2 due to the glass back panel which is very interestingly poured and has the 3D-form. In the case of the Compact version, we are talking about metal.

Both smartphones are equipped with a Snapdragon 845 processor, an 18: 9 display with HDR support, a scanner on the rear panel, 4 GB of RAM, IP65 / 68 protection. Both devices have support for 4K HDR-video recording and slow-mo 960 fps in FHD-resolution, while Galaxy S9 can offer only HD.

Xperia XZ2 received front stereo speakers, Dynamic Vibration System technology, which simulates bass performance, which will make listening to music and watching movies tactilely enjoyable. The device received a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of FullHD +, 64 GB of flash memory with support for microSD cards, 19-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front, USB 3.1, 3180 mAh battery.

XZ2 Compact received a 5-inch display, a 19-megapixel main camera module, a 5-megapixel front camera, and a 2870 mAh battery.

Sales of both start in March this year, “out of the box” devices will run on Android Oreo, you can expect support for Treble. Data on cost have not yet been disclosed.

Technically, questions can arise to the batteries. 3180 mAh is not so much for a 5.7-inch flagship. Do not like the many and the thickness: XZ2 Compact – 12.1 mm, XZ2 – 11.1 mm. Well, it weighs XZ2 198 grams, and XZ2 Compact – 168 grams, which will also cause a lot of questions.
