    iPad How do the Liquid Retina XDR mini-LED displays of the M1 iPad Pro and MacBooks differ?

    Excuse the apparent fact that I'm not knowledgeable on this topic. I thought it'd be fair to expect the same viewing experience from the two devices, but they appear very different to me regarding how dark black areas get and bloom or reflectivity. Even while both screens are off, you can easily...

    iPad Pro iPP 12.9 2021 (M1) - blurry display

    Hi everyone, I purchased a new 2021 M1 iPP 12.9. I can compare directly to a 2020 iPP 12.9. Everything seems indeed a bit more instantaneous on the M1 (like e.g. immediate rendering of webpages to the very last icon), loading times for very complex apps are a few seconds shorter and the blacks...

    iPad iPad doesn’t show right battery %

    It bothers me a lot. I charge my IPP mini-led for let’s say 20 minutes, and when I pick it up it displays the same amount of battery %. Sometimes I restart it and it shows more %, sometimes it doesn’t. Any clue? Thanks in advance.

    16" MacBook Pro, buy now or wait for the mini-led?

So last spring I heard that a 16" MacBook Pro was coming out at some point in 2019, when Apple updated the 15" in May 2019 I stupidly upgraded my 2017 MacBook Pro then 6 moths later in November the 16" come...
