The Student Pocket Guide | The Future of Apple?
By Stuart Robinson
On October 23rd 2012, Apple unveiled the latest addition to their family – the iPad Mini. Almost two inches smaller than its bigger brother, but running all the same software, the iPad Mini is set to go down a storm when it is released in November.
Since Apple has had so many revolutionary successes in the last few decades, from the Mac to the iPod, the Macbook to the iPhone, we decided to take a look into our crystal ball and come up with our predictions for the computer giant’s future products. Would you buy them…?
iPad Mini Nano
An even smaller version of the ever popular iPad, the iPad Mini Nano fits in the palm of your hand, runs all of your favourite apps, plays everything from your iTunes library and can be used to read books and magazines. Yes, this may sound like the iPod Touch, but… well… it isn’t, ok?
A new retro version of the iPhone, the iPhone Home is completely mobile within 10 meters from any phone socket! There’s no screen, as the iPhone Home is controlled by several buttons used to dial any number from 1 to 9 (only numbers 1 to 5 included on the standard iPhone Home. iPhone Home Pro includes numbers 1 to 9).
Using the screen on the front, users can download any food or drink available on the iFridge Store straight to their iFridge! Apps can be installed to the iFridge, such as Angry Birds, which requires the user to beat the current high score before they are able to open their iFridge device. The front-facing camera allows you to see what you look like after you’ve eaten all that chocolate cake that you were supposed to be saving for when your Mum comes to visit.
Much better than a real dog, the iDog doesn’t steal your food, shed hair or bark at your relatives. The iDog will play any music from your iTunes library upon request; all that is required is several weeks of training; just bring your iDog to your local Apple Store and our iDog Genius’s will do the rest (iDog Training £999).
The iCar is available in black and white, but additional software can be used to design new iCar interiors. The iCar reaches up to 30mph as standard, with additional speeds available to download on the iCar Store. The thinner, flatter iCar Air is also available, but this model does tend to become airborne in high winds.
