Default There's no excitement in consumer electronics anymore

I'm in the market for an iPad so maybe the next update will be revolutionary enough to tank the prices on the current models. Watch series 2 looks pretty cool. Was thinking about getting a fit bit but might spring for the watch instead if the reviews are good

Yeah, I checked and Apple's site says Bluetooth. Like I said though, it says that it is compatible with a bunch of iPhone, iPad and iPod models. That said, it doesn't say it is compatible with any other items, not that I would expect them to say. But I wouldn't put it past Apple to somehow make it incompatible.

And if they could split the lightning cable, you would think they would have those already available.

smartphones and other gadgets aren't really that new anymore, wonder what the next big thing will be.

And it looks like just a lightning splitter. It doesn't even look like it matters which thing you plug into which plug. And to use 3.5mm headphones you still need Apple's lightning to 3.5mm adapter as well.

I agree with to the price. But this is exclusively for Apple product users and they are used to paying through the nose for accessories.

This looks like snap city. You'll be getting a new stylus every week as you accidentally pick up your iPad and break the pencil charger.
