Apple today announced iPad Air, the latest generation of its iPad line. The iPad Air is significantly thinner and lighter than its predecessors, while offering faster performance, faster networking and more free apps.
In addition to the iPad Air, Apple introduced a new iPad mini with Retina display and the same performance improvements.
The iPad updates are, arguably, incremental. But for mobile musicians, the series of incremental updates to the iPad over the last few years are starting to deliver a paradigm shift. GarageBand, for example, is free with the new devices and can handle up to 32 tracks.

Mobile app firm Agawi has released the results of its TouchMarks II research, which compares the touchscreen latency of flagship tablets running Android, Windows RT, and iOS.
Touchscreen latency measures the length of time it takes for devices to react to touches. Faster is better, especially for musicians that do realtime music-making on mobile devices.
Agawi benchmarked the touchscreen latencies of leading tablets, including iPads, Microsoft’s Surface and several Android tablets, including Amazon’s newest Kindle Fire HD. They also tested the Nvidia Shield – an Android-based gaming device. Continue reading
Thursday, Arturia announced an update of its iMini app, to version 1.2, an iOS 7-supporting update to its recreation of the 1971-vintage Minimoog monosynth for the iPad.
The advances to the iMini app take advantage of iOS 7′s built-in Inter-App Audio, allowing users to send MIDI commands and stream audio between apps on the same device. Using its new iOS 7-supporting INTERAPP AUDIO TRANSPORT feature, iMini v1.2 can easily connect and control other similarly-supportive apps.
The iMini v 1.2 update is free for current iMini users. And for every new customer buying the iMini app, Arturia will continue their tradition of making a donation to The Bob Moog Foundation. In turn, this supports the dream of building the Moogseum (Bob Moog Museum), the convergence of The Bob Moog Foundation?s goals of inspiring and educating people through electronic music.
