    When Apple announced Universal Control as a feature of macOS Monterey and iPadOS 15, I wasn't sure what to think. It seemed like a feature nobody had asked for, but one that Apple had realized might actually be incredibly useful. by its technical ambition. But would it be something that I would ever use day to day? I was skeptical. It's been about eight months since Universal Control arrived–remember, it was announced in June 2021 but gestated for nine months before being released in March of this year–and I'm finally ready to weigh in on Universal Control.

    For reasons best known to Apple, the new 10th-gen iPad has been assigned to work with the 1st- rather than the 2nd-gen Apple Pencil, even though it doesn't have the Lightning port necessary to charge and pair with the former accessory To circumvent this problem, Apple simultaneously released a new $9 dongle that has female connectors for both Lightning and USB-C, and lets you use the original Pencil with the new iPad. Apple has had years to plan for the transition to USB-C on the iPad range.

In addition to doubling the wireless charging rate from 7.5W to 15W, this could enable all sorts of neat accessories. Unfortunately, the market has given us precious little to be excited about, and Apple's own accessories are some of the worst of the bunch. Instead of leading the way with imaginative i…

    Apple just introduced a new 10th-generation iPad and M2 iPad Pro, but still sells the 9th-gen iPad. Throw in the iPad mini and storage sizes and we're in an “Oops!

The 10th-gen model takes on the physical characteristics of the iPad Air, with a larger display, flat sides, and Touch ID in the side button.

The feature is so good, Apple took steps to make sure it works for everyone in iOS 16. Now Google is taking it a step further. Instead of limiting tapbacks to RCS/iMessage conversations, it will begin allowing emoji reactions for SMS texts from iPhone users as well.
