Die-hard Apple fans have long suggested that the company might be better off without the scrutiny that comes with being publicly traded. On the heels of another record-breaking quarter, AppleInsider took a look at what going private might mean for the computing juggernaut. Apple has a reputation for being perhaps the most nimble "big company" in Silicon Valley -- internalizing risk and prioritizing products over profits, in a manner usually reserved for much smaller...
The week began with a financial bang, as Apple published the results of its record-breaking second quarter, but later saw controversies swirl with Apple Watch production obstacles and problems for wearers with tattoos. AppleInsider meanwhile reviewed the device, finding it attractive but saddled with some flaws. Apple reaps $13.6 billion in second-quarter results On Monday Apple announced $58 billion in revenue and $13.6 billion in net profits for the March-quarter,...

Samsung has been known to borrow Apple's ideas from time to time, an effective -- if not entirely inspired -- strategy considering massive iPhone, iPad and now Watch demand. But its latest advertisement for the new Galaxy S6 edge, basically an amalgamation of Apple Watch promo videos, dials the homage up to 11. This is not the Apple ad you're looking for.

Popular iOS Twitter client Tweetbot received a small update on Friday with access to Twitter's new "Quote Tweet" format, which embeds tweets in a new message instead of copying a block of text. With Tweetbot 3 version 3.6, the new tweet quoting format, first introduced through Twitter's official iOS app earlier this month, not only saves on character limits, but looks much cleaner in users' timelines. The feature is activated by selecting Standard Quote in the Quote...

Whether or not a new 12-plus-inch iPad becomes an actual product, case makers are betting on leaked design specifications, and a new video offers an idea of just how big a so-called "iPad Pro" might be. The comparison of a full-size 9.7-inch iPad Air with the supposed iPad Pro cases was shared by YouTube channel Unbox Therapy on Friday. The cases suggest that Apple's anticipated larger iPad will sport about the same thickness as the current-generation iPad Air 2. An...
An alleged industrial rendering of Apple's rumored "iPad Pro" was leaked on Friday, supporting rumors that the tablet will use a 12.9-inch screen instead of a less-frequently claimed 12.2-inch version. In terms of length, width, and thickness, the rendering -- obtained by Nowhereelse.fr, and said to date back to December -- indicates dimensions of 305.7 by 222.6 by 7.2 millimeters, or 12 by 8.7 by 0.28 inches. That's enough space to fit a 12.9-inch screen, measured...
