If we’re to believe all the information gathered up until this point, the models line up pretty well. The slimmer body with tapered edges, dual cameras, and seemingly enhanced backside speaker grill are there. However, the photos don’t offer a look at an SD slot or USB port.

The images come from DGtle, which mentions it’s only pretty sure this is the real thing. Aside from its thinner design, the second generation and original Apple tablet are nearly identical. There might be something to those reports saying the iPad 3 is really the release to get excited about.

We’ve also noticed that Your Daily Apple reports that Amazon’s German site listed the iPad 2 with the alleged March 17 ship date. According to that image, the tablet will include Thunderbolt and a 1.2GHz CPU. The page has since been pulled, but take a look at the screenshot below.

Apple’s Live Photos feature is a great way to add some extra charm to your normal, everyday iPhone pictures. Enabled by default, Live Photos automatically records and integrates the 1.5-second interval before and after you hit the shutter button on your iOS device. The end result is a lightly animated image, which can easily be shared via iMessage or a Shared Photo Album with any friend of family member with an iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

You’ll also be able to share a static version of any picture captured as a Live Photo. But if you’d like to enchant your Windows and Android device buddies with your moving pics, you’re better off converting that Live Photo into a video or animated GIF. This is also the best way to future-proof your Live Photos against any down-the-line compatibility issues the Live Photo format might face from non-Apple hardware.

How to Hide Apps on an iPhone.

People either love the iPhone's home screen or hate it. Unlike Android, which hides apps away in an app drawer, the iPhone proudly plops app icons down onto the home screen.
