iPad vs. Air vs. mini vs. Pro: Which should you buy?
Back in 2010 you could get any iPad you wanted, provided you wanted the only 9.7-inch iPad Apple made… But, over the years, Apple has expanded the lineup to include the 7.9-inch iPad mini and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Just recently, they’ve even added a 10.5-inch iPad Air and 11-inch Pro. So, now, the iPad is spread across 5 different models and price points, and that’s not even counting options like cellular or storage or even finish that make up all the different SKU. That’s industry slang for stock keeping unit, but whatever. My point is, you have a lot of options now and it can seem complicated, maybe even overwhelming if you’re looking to upgrade or buy-in for the first time. But it’s actually really simple to hone down on the one and only iPad that’s perfect for you. SPONSOR: Thanks to Skillshare for sponsoring this show!

Thanks to Kevin McLeod for the music you hear on today’s episode. Help us out, take the CultCast listener survey! On the show this week @erfon / @lewiswallace / @lkahney Here’s what Apple’s (apparently) got in store for 2019 Ming-Chi Kuo’s new research report runs down some of his hardware expectations for the coming year, and my nips have been at 105% of capacity since reading it. We’re talking redesigned MacBook Pro, iPads, a new Apple cinema display, AirPods, even a new iPOD... this could be a year to remember. Kuo predicts 2019 will see the release of Apple’s biggest MacBook since 2012. The new MacBook Pro will boast a screen between 16 inches and 16.5 inches in size. This would be the largest MacBook notebook screen since the end of the 17-inch models seven years ago. It will be a total redesign! Kuo says the 13” will possibly get an option for 32GB of RAM. Dave Lee theory - the new design will have to address thermal issues. Current MBP design is too thin for modern chips. It can’t keep them cool, like with the current i9 throttling. Now intel has a new 9th-gen 8 core chip, and there’s no way the current design could handle it. Apple Said to Release 31.6-Inch 6K Display With Mini LED-Like Backlight Design in 2019 Apple will release a 31.6-inch 6K display with a Mini LED-like backlight design in 2019, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo Apple left the display market back in 2016 with the discontinuation of the outdated Thunderbolt Display. Apple did, however, say they were working on a new screen alongside the new Mac Pro AirPower and New AirPods Said to Ship in First Half of 2019, New iPod Touch With Faster Processor Also Expected Apple's long-awaited AirPower wireless charging mat and a new version of AirPods with wireless charging support and upgraded Bluetooth connectivity will start shipping in the first half of 2019, Kuo also expects a new iPod touch with a faster processor to launch in 2019. Two New iPad Pro Models, 10.2-Inch iPad, and iPad Mini 5 Said to Launch in 2019 According to Kuo, Apple plans to release two new iPad Pro models, a 10.2-inch iPad, and a refreshed iPad mini, each equipped with an upgraded processor, later this year. The 9.7-inch iPad is getting upgraded to 10.2 inches. No news on if it’s going full screen with FaceID. Don’t expect a major redesign for this year’s iPad mini 5 The iPad mini hasn’t gotten a sequel since 2015. However, if you’re expecting this year’s rumored refresh to be a massive leap forward, you might want to think again. At least, that’s based on an alleged CAD render shared by noted leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, a.k.a. @OnLeaks. While he hasn’t shared the image, he suggests that there are no external major design changes — and only a spec bump update. Apple may finally give fans a first look at its revamped Mac Pro at WWDC 2019 Apple may finally give fans a first look at its revamped Mac Pro at WWDC 2019. Bloomberg is reporting that Apple has “internally weighed” the possibility of previewing the new Mac Pro alongside updates to macOS and iOS at this year’s WWDC, which is expected to take place between June 3 and June 7 in San Jose. Apple has also put together a "Pro Workflow Team" to tailor the Mac Pro and other Apple products to its professional users. The timing seems right. Speaking about the Mac Pro in 2017, Phil Schiller said this: With regards to the Mac Pro, we are in the process of what we call "completely rethinking the Mac Pro." We’re working on it. We have a team working hard on it right now, and we want to architect it so that we can keep it fresh with regular improvements, and we’re committed to making it our highest-end, high-throughput desktop system, designed for our demanding pro customers. As part of doing a new Mac Pro — it is, by definition, a modular system — we will be doing a pro display as well. Now you won’t see any of those products this year; we’re in the process of that. We think it’s really important to create something great for our pro customers who want a Mac Pro modular system, and that’ll take longer than this year to do.
