Apple upgraded the iPad Air and the iPad Mini with the same CPU that’s in its iPhone XS. Both tablets now also support the first-generation Apple Pencil stylus. The iPad Air now comes with a 10.5″ display, while the iPad Mini is 25% brighter than its predecessor.
THE BEST Gadgets
Edelkrone’s high-tech, programmable dolly can smoothly and silently move any tripod on a flat surface. You can set it to move on a straight or circular virtual track, for beautiful cinematic shots. It pairs wirelessly with their HeadONE and HeadPLUS motion control heads too.
RBT’s Rebel Real Mouse has an unorthodox but functional design. The raised left- and right-click buttons put your hand in a more natural position, while their backward clicking action lets the middle of your fingers do the work instead of tiring out your fingertips.
The gaming version of Lexip’s groundbreaking 3D mouse. Like its predecessor, the Pu94 doubles as two joysticks – it’s body acts as one, and it also has a thumbstick. Its software lets you map not just movement but keys and macros. It also has replaceable ceramic feet.
Logitech’s 2.0 speakers have looks and sound quality well above their price tag. Their Easy Switch technology conveniently lets you swap sound between a wired device and up to two devices paired via Bluetooth. They also have motion-activated touch controls.
The successor to the Lenovo X280, the X390 laptop packs a 13.3″ display in the body of a 12″ machine. It’s only 0.7″ thick and weighs just 2.7 lb. It’s powered by Intel 8th gen CPUs, has an optional SIM slot for LTE, and lasts up to 17 hours per charge. Drops 6/2019 for $1099+.
Did you know can play a record without need for a turntable at all? The RokBlok is basically a wooden mini vehicle that drives around on top of your records, following the groove, and playing music through its built in speaker, or wirelessly over Bluetooth for more volume.
Logitech has brought back its beloved MX518 gaming mouse. The 2019 version retains the shape and glossy finish of the original, but adds a new optical sensor and processor for a more responsive experience. Dedicated buttons let you switch DPI settings on the fly.
