Apple tells resellers 'make room for more iPads this September'

Deadline of September 12 to complete the work, hints that the new iPad mini could launch soon.

Apple has told its authorised resellers in Europe to dedicate more floor space to the iPad. The company has told its Apple Authorised Resellers that they have a deadline of September 12 to complete the work, hinting that the new iPad mini could launch soon.

The September 12 deadline has lead to speculation that the iPad mini may arrive in September, alongside the new iPhone. Other reports have suggested a launch of the iPad mini in October, however.

Resellers have also told MacRumors that Mac Pro and Mac mini desktop Macs are being removed from stores and iPod displays are being trimmed back.

The changes have been rolled out over the past three months and are thought to better reflect the revenue share that the iPad brings in.

New reports suggest that the widely speculated iPad mini will look like a big iPod touch, with thin side bezels, separate volume buttons and a microphone on the back.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
