Interesting new iPad keyboard from Apple! 0 202

Apple

A new patent just acquired by Apple shows a new iPad keyboard that not only makes the iPad more useful but also completely transforms it into a Mac by changing the interface of the device. The possibilities of iPadOS have been talked about many times, especially when we use it with an external keyboard and mouse, and this patent makes these possibilities a reality.

Actually, what the patent seems to show is a kind of hybrid device, similar to Microsoft’s Surface, a kind of MacBook with a touch screen. But we know that this is not within the philosophy of Apple. Right now iPads and Macs have the same M1 processor. So the only possibility is for an iPad keyboard that slightly transforms it into a more desktop-oriented device.

As reported by Patently Apple, the patent also suggests that the keyboard hinge may magnetically support the Apple Pencil, or may even support other accessories such as a camera, projector, or microphone. Of course, the iPad itself should be updated when this accessory is released.

It has already been rumored that Apple will change multitasking in some way in iPadOS 16, with a windowed view similar to what we have in macOS. If this is true, perhaps it could be an interface that is only activated by connecting a keyboard, similar to what appears in this patent granted to Apple.

Of course, like so many other Apple patents that we have seen, it could be just that, an idea. Most of the patents we have seen never materialize in a final device, or if they do, it is after several years. Perhaps Apple is only guaranteeing the designs of a future hybrid device that will arrive in a few years.

We will see if this patent is fulfilled, or if something similar finally arrives. Honestly, it would be something really interesting if it came to the iPad and it would undoubtedly make the Apple tablet a much more productive device.

The oil company took Apple out of its seat! 0 246

Apple

Saudi oil group Aramco pushed Apple out of the world’s largest market capitalization on Wednesday, May 11, as the Saudi giant’s shares were boosted by the recent rise in oil prices. According to Bloomberg, the market capitalization of Saudi Aramco, Saudi’s national oil company, reached $2.430 billion on Wednesday, slightly surpassing the iPhone maker, which fell to $2.371 billion.

Apple is no longer the largest company in the world!

Shares of Aramco, listed on the Riyadh Stock Exchange at the end of 2019, closed at 45.50 Saudi riyals, down 0.98% in the session but up 27% since the beginning of the year with rising prices. oil prices are favored by energy companies. In January, at the height of the Wall Street bull cycle, Apple was the first company in history to cross the $3 billion market mark.

Saudi Aramco’s rise to the forefront of the largest stock-market companies has also been made possible by the recent decline in technology stocks, which has recently hit Apple and all the big digital names. The Nasdaq has lost more than 25% since the beginning of the year due to a change in the monetary policy of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) in the face of inflation and the war in Ukraine. Apple’s title was $182 in early January, compared to $145.50 at the end of Wednesday.

Between IPOs at the end of 2019 and July 2020, the oil giant has a higher market capitalization than Apple.
