iPad Plus is said to be the name of Apple’s upcoming large screen tablet, which was originally meant to launch last year. Many people believed that the Cupertino-based company ultimately decided to cancel the project, but now it seems that it was merely postponed. According to sources from the Chinese media, Apple is still working on the slate and should finally release it at some point later this year. Gizmochina reports that the iPad Plus will come equipped with a 12.9 inch display with 2K resolution and will only measure 7 mm in thickness. The large tablet will reportedly feature an equally large battery of no less than 11,000 mAh, but interestingly enough, the device will apparently only weigh as little as 700 grams.

We’ve heard some other rumors in the past talking about a new large tablet from Apple, but most of them were suggesting that its name will be iPad Pro. Now, it seems like the company wants to follow the naming conventions started with the iPhone 6 Plus, thus the iPad Plus title. Aside from the aforementioned details, the source also provided a schematic that allegedly showcases this new tablet. Unfortunately the image doesn’t reveal much else, so we’ll just have to wait until further details pop up. iPad Plus aside, the leak also talks a bit about some other Apple products.

Specifically, Gizmochina claims that the iPad Mini 3 will be discontinued and replaced by the iPad Mini 4 in the future. Interestingly, Apple will still sell the iPad Mini 2. As for its smartphones, the company is apparently preparing to bring three different iPhone models this year, one of which will likely feature a 4 inch display. All that being said, these are just rumors for now, so remember to treat them accordingly until Apple makes an official announcement regarding the iPad Plus or any of the other mentioned devices. In the meantime, check out the alleged iPad Plus leaked schematic below.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.
