  • Compared: 2018 iPad versus the original 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro

    Thanks for the useful article. I’m typing this on my 2015 12.9” iPad Pro.  :)

    A couple nits:

    1. RAM isn’t just “Application RAM”, though, is it? Isn’t a large reason for the higher memory on larger iPads & iPhones because of video memory needs? That RAM is shared, right?

    2. Giving battery “life” in terms of capacity is very misleading, isn’t it? Battery life depends both on battery capacity as well as power consumption of the screen & electronics. As CPUs get built on smaller processes (12nm, 9nm, 7nm, etc.), they need less energy power for the same processing power. They really should be compared on Apple’s original battery estimates, along with your note about battery aging on older devices.

  • Apple releases iOS 11.2.2 for iPhone and iPad, supplemental macOS 10.13.2 security update ...

    I tried updating the Supplemental 10.13.2 on both of my iMacs (one machine for me, the other for the kids, both 2017's). It worked just fine on one of them, but on the other it said it could not install the update. When I went back into the Mac App Store to try to reinstall it the Supplemental was no longer available as an update. Strange.
    The iOS updates worked fine for me. But on my older Mac, the macOS update took a while to install, and now I don’t seem to have wifi/connectivity.

    EDIT:
    It seems to be Safari-based web views. Safari doesn’t work, iTunes Store doesn’t work, App Store doesn’t work. Firefox works fine.
