Amongst a flurry of announcements at CES 2016, Incipio today announced five new iPad keyboards from their ClamCase label. The new lineup of ClamCase keyboards include the ClamCase+ for the iPad Pro and iPad Air 2, ClamCase Prompt for iPad Air 2, ClamCase+ Power for iPad Air 2 and ClamCase Pro for iPad mini 4.
The first two days of CES are reserved for press releases and invite only press conferences before the convention officially kicks off in Las Vegas on January 6. LG already has the tech world talking with the announcment of its "18-inch rollable display that can be rolled-up like a newspaper,"
and 55-inch double-sided display. All eyes are also on Fitbit who will hold the first CES press conference at 7:30 a.m. on January 5. The fitness tracking company is expected to get the jump on the Apple Watch 2 by announcing its new line of wearable devices with upgraded features.
If you've received a shiny new iPad Pro for the holidays then you will probably want to invest in a new bag to lug it around. iPad Pro owners looking for a protective case or screen protector can check out our past iPad Pro case article. This post is all about bags that are big and strong enough to hold Apple's larger 12.9-inch tablet. Here are five iPad Pro carrying cases that caught our eye:
Astropad, the iOS app that transforms your iPad into a graphic tablet for your Mac, has added more features for the Apple Pencil and improved performance on the iPad pro. The app allows users to pair their iPad with a Mac so they can sketch on their display. The app works with Photoshop and other Mac apps and it connects wirelessly over Wi-Fi or with a USB.
Adobe's Lightroom for iPad and Lightroom for iPhone have both received major updates for Apple's next-generation products. Lightroom for iPad can now take full advantage of the iPad Pro's high-resolution display and multitasking features, such as Split View and Slide Over.
Lightroom for iPhone has been updated with 3D Touch support for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Users can now quickly access their Adobe camera from their Home screen, and use Peek and Pop actions within the Grid View.
As promised, OtterBox is now accepting pre-orders for its first iPad Pro case. The Defender Series Case is one of OtterBox's most durable products that promises to put "layers of protective power between your tablet and a damage-prone world." The case features three layers of protection starting with its polycarbonate shell, which is guaranteed to protect your tablet from drops, bumps and wear and tear. The Defender Case also includes a built-in screen protector, rubber slipcover and port covers for keeping out dust and lint. The screen protector also works with the Apple Pencil while guarding against scratches and other display damage.
The Pixelmator Team has updated its award winning image editing app with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil support. Pixelmator version 2.2 now features the ability to create and edit images up to 100 megapixels on Apple's newly released 12-inch tablet. The app also supports all the advanced features of Apple's new stylus, including palm rejection and more.
Back in November Apple responded to complaints about a bug that was causing some iPad Pro models to stop responding. Apple didn't offer an immediate fix, but the company did release a support document telling iPad Pro owners to restart their device to temporarily deal with the issue.
iDownloadBlog noticed today that Apple has added a Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader to its online store. The official description states that the device "supports data transfer at up to USB 3 speeds on iPad Pro, and up to USB 2 speeds on all other iPad and iPhone models." This differs from the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter which only supports up to USB 2 speeds.
Sprint has rolled out its own iPad Pro pricing plan for buyers who can't afford to pay $1,079 up front. Sprint customers can decide to go with the Sprint Easy Pay plan for $200 down followed by 24 monthly payments of $36.67. This will nab you a 128GB iPad Pro Wi-Fi plus cellular model, which is normally retails for $1,079 from apple.com.
