1. Celebrating Steve — The Tech Pioneer

I would like to begin this story with the story I wrote on Steve Jobs, the Tech Pioneer. It was his tenth death anniversary. The man who changed this world in so many ways.

As a diehard Apple fanboy, this story is like my homage to the master storyteller, the visionary, and the icon. An absolute legend in his own right.

2. What makes Apple designs so good

My second pick would be about Apple design. As you know, Apple is the gold standard in Industrial Design. While Apple is known for its great technology, a big part of its reputation lies in its clean minimalist design and simplicity.

So how does Apple come up with such timeless designs every time?

This story will explore the design principles that Apple adheres to, even to this day.

3. The Most Powerful Mac notebooks ever

For my third story, I would pick performance, power, and efficiency as my key theme. As you know, Apple concluded its Mac keynote for this year recently.

Apple announced a new line-up of MacBook Pro devices, powered by not one but two new SoCs in Apple’s Silicon line-up: the M1 Pro and the M1 Max.

So, the Macbooks released this year are the most powerful Mac notebooks ever. Quite literally.

But how do you measure the term “Most Powerful”? Based on what?

This story explores how the new SoC’s are the very best in class based on some of the key benchmarks and tests conducted by Apple. Trust me, the results are going to blow your mind.

4. The new iPhone 13 mini — Apple

The iPhone 13 mini is the most compact and affordable model in Apple’s 2021 iPhone lineup. It shares most specs, including the camera setup, with the iPhone 13 that comes with a larger 6.1-inch display.

But is it worthy enough to earn the title of Pocket Rocket this year?

This story explores the various features of the iPhone 13 mini in detail along with helping you out with the final decision as to whether you should buy the mini or not.

5. The Apple Ecosystem explained

The Apple ecosystem is the different products and services that we all interact with within our daily lives. A sample image is shown above. It’s suggestive but not exhaustive.

But why do people keep buying Apple products despite being so expensive?

This story covers the above aspect. The Apple ecosystem is argued as the best, and here I am going to discuss what this ecosystem is and why you are probably trapped in it.

6. Apple Watch Series 7 — Is this for you

The Apple Watch Series 7, announced back in September 2021, is the current iteration of the Apple Watch that was originally launched in 2015.

The Apple Watch Series 7 builds on the design of previous Apple Watch models with a more rounded design and offers some notable new features like a larger display, improved durability, and faster charging.

But are these features reason enough for you to go for the Series 7?

7. iPad mini 6 — The new iPad mini

The iPad mini was crying out for a complete makeover.

Although in 2019, Apple surprised us with the arrival of a new version of the iPad mini (the fifth generation), it was a more or less a small change here and there in terms of software.

But this year, Apple changed everything.

So is the new Apple iPad mini mighty enough?

8. 10 incredible iPad Desk setup ideas

The iPad was introduced by Steve Jobs nearly more than a decade back.

I always believed the iPad had a great future. It’s an interesting device in the entire Apple lineup. Other than being so portable and lightweight, it is so versatile, it’s more than up to any task.

But how should we set up to maximize its potential?

For that, we need to know a little bit about the personas. This story will introduce you to those personas which would then help you in setting the things from the ground up.

Assuming you love to work on an iPad, chances are high that you value minimalism, like to keep it clean and clutter-free with fewer cables.
