New iPhone Production to Begin this Quarter – Can the Next iPad be Far Behind?
Unlike the iPhone, Apple has stuck to a rigid release schedule for its tablets, releasing an update like clockwork each spring. That update schedule was thrown into disarray, however, with the October announcement of both the fourth generation iPad and the iPad mini.
Though it has been just months since an iPad hit the market, there is a solid case for an additional iPad and iPad mini release in the next month or two. First of all, as mentioned, Apple has always used the iPad as its “new” spring product. The original iPad, the iPad 2, and the iPad 3 all came in March or April.
Second of all, it has now been five months without a new product release from Apple, which is an astonishingly long dry spell. With the iPhone slotted to fill a summer role once again, if Apple goes without a product release until the iPhone 5S announcement, it will mark a whopping seven to eleven months (following previous iPhone release schedules) between major product releases.
The fifth generation iPad, which is expected to sport a design that is similar to the iPad mini with smaller bezels and a lighter weight, was originally targeted for a March release , back in January.
Use Guided Access And Safely Hand Your iPhone or iPad Over To Anyone [iOS ...
First, head into the Settings app, and tap on the General tab. Then scroll down to Accessibility, and drop into that with a tap. Scroll down to the Learning section, and tap on Guided Access to, well, access those preferences.
Toggle Guided Access to ON at the top there, and you’ll be asked to set a Passcode. Use something different than your device passcode, unless ou haven’t given that to the children you’re passing the device to. If nothing else, it will freak them out when they get too precocious and try to hop out of Guided Access with your iPhone password. You can also enable Screen Sleep here, to put it to sleep on a different schedule than otherwise.
Tap the Accessibility arrow in the upper left to back out to the Accessibility preferences, and scroll down to Triple Click Home. Tap there and set Guided Access as one of the options that will pop up when you hit the Home button three times in rapid succession.
Now pop into any app you want to have the kids in your life use. One of my personal favorites is The Blockheads
