Apple iPad 2 may also come in white


File this in the “we’ll believe it when we see it” category: Rumors has it that Apple will announce the release of a white version of its second-generation iPad at its upcoming event on Wednesday, March 2.

News of the white iPad 2 comes via 9to5Mac, which has pictures (above) of what convincingly looks like a white-colored bezel to an iPad. The piece, which surrounds the display, comes from Shenzhen City, China, via the good folks of iFiYouri iPhone repair shop.

Giving credence to the white iPad 2 rumor is the fact that the piece includes a small hole for what will presumably be a front-facing camera — a feature long thought to be included in the next-gen iPad. As 9to5Mac points out, the hole also matches up with leaked iPad 2 screen protectors coming out of Asia.

We know what you’re thinking: Apple couldn’t even successfully release the iPhone 4 in white, after all this time. How could they possibly expect us to believe that they have a white iPad in the works?

Without details directly from Apple, we can’t say for sure. But it’s possible that they have the problems with white-colored parts sorted out.

Late last year, we reported that the mythical white iPhone would be available this spring. If that’s correct — and it remains unclear that it is — then it’s not such a stretch to believe that the second-generation iPad could also sport the ghostly hue.

It also raises the possibility that Apple will announce on Wednesday that the white iPhone is finally ready to go on sale. Release of the iPhone 5 is expected to happen on the normal schedule, in June. So it would make sense that Apple would want to get all its iPhone 4 business out of the way before that time.

Either way, we’ll know all the facts on Wednesday. Until that time, expect a flood of iPad 2 rumors — of both the legitimate and completely-crazy variety — to come rushing out. Which category this white iPad rumor falls into will be known soon enough.

Apple, please release the iPhone 14 in these colors next 
Mockup render of the iPhone 14 in an orange color.

You've probably heard the news by now. Earlier this week, Apple released a new yellow color for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus -- and it's now up for pre-order. Does it look good? I sure think so! It's a bright, vibrant, and saturated yellow that adds a lot of pop to a mostly muted color palette for the iPhone 14 series.

But as much as I like how the yellow looks, it's not the only color I'd love to see the iPhone come in. There are so many possibilities for future iPhone colors, and if Apple's looking for a few tips on what to do next, I have some suggestions. Here are five colors Apple should release the iPhone 14 in next (hopefully soon).

Watch the Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro Max face off in brutal drop test

Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, is one of the year's best phones. It comes equipped with the powerful new, purpose-build Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip, a 200MP main camera, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on the front and back of the device (which means heavy durability).

But there’s another question — how does Gorilla Glass Victus 2 hold up against Apple’s confidently-named 'Ceramic Shield' on the iPhone 14 Pro Max? YouTuber PhoneBuff did a drop test to find that very answer.

It may not be the latest model, but this iPad is a steal at $60 off
The iPad 10.2 on a table.

The Apple iPad is a classic tablet. Even if you grab a model that's a few years old, you'll still get a dependable and innovative device that will last a long time. Right now the 2021 iPad is down to only $269 after a $60 discount. Deals like these don't last long, so head over to Amazon and grab it before it's gone.

Why you should buy the 10.2-inch Apple iPad (2021)
The 2021 Apple iPad was an incremental upgrade to the 2020 model and is a great entry point if you're entering the Apple ecosystem for the first time. For starters, it runs the A13 bionic chip, which, while two generations older than the A15, is still a powerful little processor bundle and can handle most stuff you throw at it. It also has more than enough RAM to handle day-to-day use, so you won't constantly have to manage apps or the number of browser windows open. Also, while this deal comes only as a Wi-Fi version, you can grab a cellular version if you'd prefer to go that route, and similarly, we encourage you to grab the 256GB version rather than the 64 GB unless you're planning on grabbing one of these external hard drive deals.
