Is the sixth-generation iPad worth buying?

The new iPad is also equipped with Broadcom chips for Apple Pencil support. A feature not found on the previous model.

New iOS Games and Apps of the Week: PUBG Mobile and more

PUBG Mobile

The real battle royale is not happening between players in PUBG Mobile, it's happening right now on the App Store. Both PUBG Mobile and Fortnite have been ported to mobile and are fighting over iPhone and iPad users. It is kind of reminiscent of Android and iOS, if you think about it. Both games offer basically the same features, both are free, both were available on other platforms before coming to mobile, and most importantly both want to hook you on their ecosystem. The more players each game recruits the better the competition, and hopefully that leads to more players spending money on whatever DLC or IAPs each games decides to offer in the future.
