Still doesn't solve the problem of the Wii U Gamepad draining it's battery when turned off after a few days.


​all batteries deplete after time, but you're 100% correct. the gamepad is constantly in a waiting state, ready to receive input from the base unit. it needs a manual power switch, not just a soft off
FreeBiscuit
Be aware that the larger battery makes the Game Pad noticeably heavier.

No stock for me within areas of reasonable commute!
Oos in all local areas
Be aware, this comes up on the small side. I got the 5-6 for my son this avo and its no different in size to his Next age 4-5 winter coat of similar design. It's also shorter, I think this one is intended to be closer to waist length. So as much of a bargain as it is, I think it's going back :(
does anyone know if it's in stock in a different store would argos get it sent over to the local store if u go in I know wynsors do but not asked argos about this.
why is every coat offer out of stock in argos or any other item apart from a few in some countryside area like Macclesfield or Shropshire market Drayton

This says you need to be in the same wifi network. Does this mean I can't use it for my wired PC, or was that just a lazy description?

You need to be on the same network. Whether you are wired or go wireless you are still using the same network - therefore, if you're iphone is on wifi but laptop is wired they are both using the same network. Hope this helps.

Agree ultimate should have it all in - I hate to think what a standard version would look like.

Would this work with a windows 10 tablet. Not too bothered about the case but I am looking for a decent keyboard. Thanks.
Mine arrived today and works perfectly with my Windows 10 tablet. The case is super nice and the iPad air cradle bit can come off so you can use it as a case for any tablet expect the tablet is not held in place. Thinking of modding it with a little elastic for luls. Bought it just for the keyboard which is pretty good and ultra slim for £7. Also the weird button next to alt automatically works as a start button in windows 10
Thanks for the detailed reply. I've ordered it now. Cheers.

I wish apple would just realise the lightening cable is the very worst and flimsiest cable of all time and just bite the bullet. change it to USB C. then we can all move on with our lives
I voted cold because of what I read on the main page.

"The troll poster Sid Harper will put in his usual rubbish criticism - what a waste of space"...dont care if this is true or not but you want to use the few lines that apear on the main page to get people to look at your deal, not to make you look like a bitter vindictive troll yourself.
Just had a refund on 6 of these after one gave shocks and a burn and others failed

to all those who have said children should be dressed in age appropriate clothing. that can be a hard thing to do when you have tall children, my 5 year old is the height of an 8 year old and my other daughter is only 10 but needs 14 years in some things due to being nearly 5ft tall
I had the same problem with my son,he was always way taller than his school friends.In P3 sweatshirt was an age 9.His year 8 uniform had to be bought in the M&s menswear section and taken in at his waist and inside leg.Know it's difficult,the best thing that ever happened was my son took a liking for WWE do was able to buy character t'shirts etc that his friends wore.
Think what was meant by age appropriate was about average size kids.
Btw My son Also has a full beard band moustache in 2nd year.Nowadays he's actually only slightly taller than his friends ,they shot up whilst he stayed the same height.

Hmmm.

I have been trying for ages to get Kodi on my ipad (I can't do it) can I use this to mirror the Kodi from my win pc to ipad wirelessly?...
If you're using a pro version of Windows then get the free Microsoft Remote Desktop Client app for your iPad (from the Apple App Store) & enable remote access on your PC. You'll then have a fully functioning windows desktop on your iPad with touchscreen support. Good way of getting Kodi or any other Windows software on an iPad or even an iPhone. Works very well.
Tried this and it's not opening Kodi?
Says unable to create GUI so I'm stuck?
Also there's no sound out of the ipad? Haven't worked that out either?.
All for Kodi on an ipad impossible, I hate Apple sometimes..
I'd have said Plex is a much better choice for any tablet anyway (assuming you already have a HTPC or other computer that can act as the main server)


Just set this up, thanks it's awesome...why are we messing around with Kodi????... this rocks!!!... thanks again

I have been trying for ages to get Kodi on my ipad (I can't do it) can I use this to mirror the Kodi from my win pc to ipad wirelessly?...
If you're using a pro version of Windows then get the free Microsoft Remote Desktop Client app for your iPad (from the Apple App Store) & enable remote access on your PC. You'll then have a fully functioning windows desktop on your iPad with touchscreen support. Good way of getting Kodi or any other Windows software on an iPad or even an iPhone. Works very well.
Tried this and it's not opening Kodi?
Says unable to create GUI so I'm stuck?

This works for quite high resolutions when I use it with my work laptop running windows 7 and iPad pro 12" I.e. 2048 x 15xx or something. It does seem a bit laggy though (although not sure if it's due to my work laptop not being that high spec)

Good software though as I can use a second screen for work etc.

The GUI fault is caused multiple instances of Kodi trying to run at the same time & the sound issues are driver related. Both are usually rectified by simply signing out of windows & then signing back in on your iPad or if that doesn't work try restarting your pc (& then signing in on your iPad only leaving your computer monitor off.)http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac216/Fotostorage/IMG_0783_zpsuuzoyy8p.jpeg
It should work then hopefully.http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac216/Fotostorage/IMG_0784_zpskmxnrx7e.png
Thanks, really appreciative of your input.
Unfortunately even after these very good quality instructions I still get unable to create GUI. Existing :(..
Everything else works and is great, just not the only program I want, lol.. marvellous isn't it...
Looks like there are plenty of people on the web with same problem & all seem to have different solutions. Might be worth uninstalling & reinstalling Kodi while using windows on your iPad or fiddling with the full screen window options in Kodi.

Sorry to OP if this is all off topic.

There are USB keys that are compatible with iOS devices if you didn't know. Not the best solution but better than just relying on the cloud.

Arrived earlier, I only have a new original power supply to compare it to. It certainly looks original.

Thanks for posting - it will be an original Apple charger, simply because 7dayshop don't supply fakes. The damage to their good name would be too great.

The naysayers here will never accept that, though - it would hurt their pride too much. ;)

Has anybody had theirs delivered yet or an email about delivery?.

Regards
"clearance" code appear to still work but not for any "apple" chargers I could find
you'll find the same sort of reviews for most of the fake chargers as they do look identical to the originals..so most people believe them to be genuine. There are multiple reviews for that product on their site which say its a fake (but not in so many words) - they have still given it 4 or 5 * mind so not so easy to spot.

You see exactly the same on their other Apple chargers/earpods etc - lots of comments about them not being the same as the original Apple ones. As they work for most people though (and from looks alone you can't tell) they mostly get 5* reviews. There are plenty of telling ones where people compare with their original product and point out the differences.

Each to their own, no skin off my nose really we can agree to disagree :) I just personally cannot get over why someone would buy a £500+ device and then take a risk with a dirt cheap charger/cable that could damage it and will invalidate it's warranty.

These were 189 in quite a few places 3 or 4 weeks ago. I was going to get one as a present for someone but not paying the current prices. This does seem to be the cheapest though so not voting cold.

Voted hot because I can not see a cheaper price elsewhere currently.

(It appears that there are a lot of hotukdeals voters with time machines which are capable of going back in time to a cheaper price, so vote cold. However, for those of us without time machines, this is the best price available currently. It would be really helpful if the timemachine brigade could go into the future, and then come back to the present so that they can tell us when it will be cheaper in the future)



Have to say just because it's the current cheapest price doesn't automatically qualify it for hot deal. I used to think like that but after a being around here for a long time I've learned that I was wrong. Something like this might just be a good price for that individual who wants to buy it now. But part of deal hunting is grabbing things at the right time not just the current cheapest price. The cheapest price EVER is the obvious hot deal but there's other factors of course such in the value of the pound vs the dollar and the direction of a product line (as in the Wii U is holding price and going up due to availability). So hot deals are actually pretty complex!


That's your opinion and obviously you're entitled to it but my whole ethos of posting deals is what the price is now.

Not what they 'have been' or 'might be' in the future. I very much doubt that Apple will stop updates for this iPad for several years as considering that they've only just recently stopped supporting iPhone 4 and that came out in June 2010 and this iPad came out in October 2013, so quite a considerable while yet.

If someone is looking for an item that I post then hopefully this is the best deal currently. It could be that they need them now, or for a present, or they just want them at this precise moment.

But I appreciate your comment and input.



It is my opinion of course. I appreciate where you're coming from. I just feel that ethos is too simplistic as if it were just a simple cheapest price now calculation then there's search and comparison engines for that. If you just post based on cheapest price for right now that's a slippery slope- For example I could just start submitting hundreds of thousands of items where I found the cheapest price for them right now... but would that really make them hot deals? I think there's more to it than that.


I disagree it's not simplistic at all.

I have found that comparison engines can be very slow to react to sudden price changes, once the deal has been active for a few days the deals can adjust and the stock has gone or the deal is no longer available. With that in mind I have posted up a few deals so members of UKHD can get the most up to date price if they so choose.

This doesn't make it cold, just the best price at that particular moment in time. Any UKHD member can do a search on a certain product and see the price history for themselves and make their own judgement.

I don't think it's a slippery slope, just informed of current prices and possibly a good deal for them if they want that certain product.

The iPad is a global icon. Its striking appearance is matched by streamlined processing power, excellent technical support and a dazzling array of apps and games. Customers can get hold of the latest version of this cutting edge tablet by checking out the iPad discounts on offer at HotUKDeals today.

Apple’s iPad has become part of everyday life for millions of people in all corners of the world. Good-looking, easy to use and powerful, the iPad is the world’s most famous tablet, and Apple regularly releases new, improved varieties onto the global market.

The Evolution of Apple´s iPadapple ipad pro ipad air ipad mini

The rise of the iPad has been astonishingly fast. The tablet was only released in 2010, but by 2015 over 250 million had been sold worldwide. This was no doubt helped by the device’s stylish and modern looks, but the major attraction is the iPad’s ability to stream video, play music, run games and surf the web, making it an all-in-one entertainment centre.

After the original launch in 2010, Apple have released four separate “generations” of iPads, culminating in the iPad Pro, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 4. This buyer’s guide will offer advice to anyone looking to purchase one of the latest models, but older versions remain popular and may be suitable for people with modest computing needs.

 

What Different Kinds of iPad Are Available?

Since the iPad was launched in 2010, there have been several new generations. Each one has seen a leap forward in terms of computing power and functionality. These included the original iPad, which was succeeded by the iPad 2 in 2011. After that (confusingly) came a new iPad model in early 2012 (not called the iPad 3) which was succeeded by the iPad 4, in late 2012. None of the earlier iPad models are still being produced.

They were replaced by the iPad Air and the iPad Mini. The iPad Air was unveiled in 2013 as a mid-size model with a 64-bit processor. In 2014, this was succeeded by the iPad Air 2, with a big speed and memory upgrade. In 2015, the iPad Air 2 was joined by the iPad Pro in 2015 and an update of the iPad Pro in early 2016, all are still in production.

The first iPad Mini was introduced in 2012, and was followed by the much more powerful iPad Mini 2 in 2013, the iPad Mini 3 in 2014 and the iPad Mini 4 in 2015.

As of 2016, there are three basic forms of iPad to choose from – the flagship and top-of-the-range iPad Pro, the slimline iPad Air 2 and the compact but powerful iPad Mini 4. All of them have their particular strong points, so take care to find the model that meets your individual needs.

The iPad Pro

The iPad Pro is the most advanced model in the iPad series with an A9X chip with 64-bit architecture and an M9 motion coprocessor that competes capably with modern desktops and high-end laptops. It comes with a 12.9-inch screen with 2048 x 2732 pixels or the newer one with a 9.7-inch screen with 2048 x 1536 pixels, providing a large enough space to read text comfortably and play video games. It weighs in at just 1.6lbs (around 725g at 12.9-inch) respectively 0.96lbs/444g in the 9.7-inch version and has the fastest ever iOS system with 4GB of RAM at 12.9-inch and 2GB at 9.7-inch. The primary camera of the 12.9-inch version is equipped with 8MP, the secondary with 1.2MP, videos can be shot at [email protected] fps. The 9.7-inch version offers a rear camera with 12MP and a front camera with 5MP.

Innovations featured in the iPad Pro include the Split View tool, enabling users to run two or more apps at the same time, which could come in handy for a diverse range of users, from accountants to video editors. It has also been designed to collaborate with the new Apple Pencil (see the accessories section below), as well as the firm’s Smart Keyboard. These features make the iPad Pro a great tool for anyone who works in the creative industries, or for casual artists, film-makers or photographers.

The size of the screen makes the iPad Pro suitable for watching TV or movies, which is also enhanced by the device’s two stereo speakers and the clarity and resolution provided by the Retina display. It’s also good for being entertained on the move, thanks to its well balanced feel.

The iPad Pro comes in three colours – gold, space grey and silver, and you can purchase 32GB, 128GB or 256GB models, depending on your need to store data. Overall, it’s a unique fusion of a conventional PC and a tablet – and will be a godsend for artists and remote workers who need power and portability in one device.

Apple iPad Pro 9.7-inch

 

The iPad Air 2

The iPad Air was introduced as a slender, lightweight alternative to the traditional iPad, and it provides a hefty amount of processing power in the iPad Air.

The iPad Air 2 comes with an A8X processor and 2GB of RAM, which makes it capable of switching between apps quickly and smoothly. The 9.7-inch display is a little smaller than the bigger iPad Pro, but is still big enough for most people to read blocks of text or watch movies without straining their eyes. Streaming video is also made easier thanks to the 2048 x 1536 Retina display, which includes specially laminated glass to reduce glare and make the picture more distinct. The rear camera has 8MP, the front camera is equipped with a resolution of 1.2MP.

The iPad Air 2 comes in the same choice of silver, space grey or gold as the iPad Pro, and buyers can choose from 16GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options. It’s a good all-rounder that suits news junkies who love to read the papers as much as it does TV streaming fans.

Buyers looking for a cheaper alternative to the Air 2 might also consider the discounted iPad Air. The original Air is slightly slower than its most recent successor, and you can’t multi-task seamlessly on it. It doesn’t feature a laminated Retina screen and memory capacity is limited – but it’s affordable and still a useful tablet for watching video, surfing the web and checking social media.

Unboxing the Apple iPad Air 2

 

The iPad Mini 4

The most compact version of the iPad is Apple’s iPad Mini 4. This compact little beast is powered by an A8 processor and features 2GB of RAM. These specs are impressive for a tiny tablet, but make it more sluggish and less powerful than the Air or Pro.

However, the Mini 4 does incorporate Split View multitasking and all of the other benefits that iOS 9 brings. It has a Retina display with a laminated surface and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels that look virtually indistinguishable from the iPad Air 2. Moreover, it’s just 8-inches tall and weighs 300g, and is easily the most portable iPad around.

The iPad Mini 4 comes in the same colour set – grey, silver and gold – and is available with 16GB, 64GB and 128GB of storage.

As with the iPad Air 2, you can save money by purchasing an earlier model of the iPad Mini series. The still manufactured iPad Mini 2 was released in 2013 and doesn’t boast the RAM or processing speed of the Mini 4. On the other hand, it does have a 2048 x 1536 screen and is a good choice for casual gamers and web browsers.

Key Features of the iPad Range

Camera and Graphics Tools

For many people, the graphics capture and processing capabilities of the iPad range are its most attractive feature, and the iSight camera is at the heart of this feature. The iSight camera is featured in all of the models discussed here and is able to capture both crystal-clear photos and 1080p HD video footage. It’s a dream tool for backpackers and holidaymakers who love to capture the moment.

Along with the camera itself, iPads also feature advanced chips in the A8 and A9 range that have image signal processors built-in. These allow for efficient facial recognition, helping to keep people in focus when taking your snaps.

Another feature of the iPad range is the FaceTime HD camera – which allows users to speak to other people anywhere in the world. The most recent generation of iPads has taken this popular feature and refined it, offering better resolution and performance in places with low light levels.

Photographers and movie makers will also benefit from the laminated Retina display on the latest iPads. The reduced glare and clarity of Retina allows them to function as exceptional view finders when setting up a shot.

iOS 9 also includes advanced time-lapse photography tools that can be used with the iPad Air 2 or the iPad Pro. All that the user needs to do is set up a shot and press the record button – a great tool for nature lovers in particular.

Processing Power

The CPUs of the iPad range are one of its trademark strengths. All three of the models available have slightly different features, and the level of processing power descends from the iPad Pro to the iPad Air and down to the iPad Mini.

The iPad Pro comes equipped with an A9X processor, featuring a 64-bit architecture which puts the tablet in the same league as modern desktops. The A9X processor departs from many conventional chips with its high level of energy efficiency, ensuring that the iPad Pro is cheap to run and good for using on the move. The Pro also features a graphics processing chip known as Metal, which has been designed to deliver console-style gaming.

The iPad Air 2 features a slightly less powerful A8X second generation chip, which also features 64-bit architecture and seeks to compete with medium-level desktops. The A8X processor is 40 percent faster than the A7 chip used in the original iPad Air and has 2.5 times the graphics processing ability. The Air also includes Metal, which makes it a good choice for gamers.

The iPad Mini 4 includes an A8 chip, which is also second-generation 64-bit hardware. Again, the A8 represents a quantum leap forward compared to earlier Minis, with 5.2 times the speed of the Mini 2 processor and 60% faster graphics processing capability than the older A7 chip.

Battery life and charging

Apples iPads are mobile tablet devices, so there is no escaping the need to charge their batteries every now and then, despite their relatively long battery lives.

The iPad Pro features a 58.5-watt rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which delivers up to 10 hours of web browsing, video streaming or music. The battery is easy to charge by simply using a USB port or power adapter.

The Air 2 features a 27.3-watt battery (also lithium-polymer) and delivers the same 10 hours of use, while the iPad Mini 4 includes a 19.1-watt battery to achieve the same battery life.

iOS 9 – the Nerve Centre of the iPad Series

All of Apple’s iPads utilise the firm’s famous iOS operating system, which allows them to connect to services like the Apple Store, iTunes and AppleTV, as well as multi-player gaming services and other streaming sites.

iOS has several useful features that set it apart from Android alternatives. One of the best known is Siri, an online assistant who provides suggestions relating to what content you might appreciate and how to get the most out of your device. Apple claims that the latest generation of iPads has refined Siri, making her input more relevant and “smarter” than before.

The iOS on the newest iPads is also geared toward multi-tasking. Features like Slide Over, Split View and Picture in Picture are designed to allow users to flick between their apps and run audio, graphical or video editing software seamlessly.

The iOS system is dynamically updated by Apple as and when new versions are launched, and there is no need for users to do this manually. All updates are free and can be downloaded by iPads as soon as they are available.

How to Use Your iPad For Entertainment

For many home users or people on the move, their iPad will primarily be an entertainment tool, and all three varieties of iPad have features to enhance the audio-visual or gaming experience.

The most well-known entertainment feature is access to iTunes – Apple’s store for everything from eBooks and movies to albums and games. Finding iTunes via iOS is easy, as is purchasing and downloading your favourite content.

Apple has also made several entertainment accessories available for their iPad range, including their Earpod headphones and wireless speakers. Other firms like Beats By Dre have been licensed to sell their products via the Apple Store as well, adding high quality headphones and speakers to the mix.

The heart of the entertainment experience is the range of apps available for the iPad. The choice is extraordinarily wide these days, but well-known streaming sites include BBC iPlayer, Netflix, the ITV Hub and Sky+ – all of which make their regular programming available to stream on iPads. Apple has also launched their AppleTV service, which features original content, the assistance of Siri to find recommended content and the ability to link your iPad to an HD TV.

apple pencil

Gaming on the iPad is also becoming increasingly popular and viable, thanks to the technology included with the iPad Pro and iPad Air 2. Every month sees more console-quality action and sports games becoming available, alongside more basic Flappy Birds-style offerings. Accessories are also appearing – as well as apps that allow you to use an iPhone as a joypad to play games on your iPad.

What Else Can I Use My iPad For?

iPads are not pure entertainment devices, and individuals and businesses are finding more uses for them all the time. For example, an app called HomeKit allows iPad users to control aspects of their homes such as lighting, appliances and security locks.

Health apps allow iPad users to monitor their diet, heart rate, sleeping patterns and blood pressure, and link people to expert medical information. At the same time, iPads are becoming widely used in education, both as teaching tools for teachers to get their message across, and as homework aids for pupils.

Apple has also launched a collaboration with IBM to produce MobileFirst, a networking solution for businesses that puts all employees in contact with each other (and clients) via their iPads.

What Kind of Accessories Are Available For the iPad?

The Smart Keyboard

One of the most technically impressive accessories for the iPad Pro is Apple’s Smart Keyboard. Made out of strong, flexible polymers, the Smart Keyboard is designed to unfold or be folded up to pack away neatly. When unfurled, it is only 4mm thick, yet is as accurate and stable as a normal keyboard. Unlike normal keyboards, it’s also resistant to spillages via a specially coated surface. Unfortunately, the Smart Keyboard hasn’t been released for the iPad Air or Mini range, but it adds a new string to the iPad Pro’s bow.

Apple Pencil

If you intend to use your iPad Pro for creative tasks, the Apple Pencil could be revolutionary. Essentially a cutting edge touchpad stylus, the Apple Pencil has an extremely responsive feel, with very little lag between touching it on the screen and an image appearing. That’s because the iPad Pro senses the Pencil 240 times every second.

With the Apple Pencil, artists can draw thick or slender lines by altering how hard they press, and they can apply shading by tilting the pen towards or away from the screen. It’s potentially a great way to take down sketches while on holiday, or for architects to draft their plans on site. It’s also very practical, with the ability to charge by plugging straight into the iPad Pro.

Cases and Covers

If you want to keep your iPad in top condition, it is vital to store it and transport it safely. For protecting the screen while you move around, the Smart Cover is a good option. It doubles as a keyboard stand for typing and automatically turns off the device when not in use, and it looks great too.

For more heavy duty protection, there are cases available for all forms of iPad, from brands like Logitech, Acme, STM and Felix. You can find Moleskine cases, brightly coloured designs and shoulder bags with compartments that exactly fit your iPad Model. If you intend to use an iPad on the move, it makes sense to buy a specialist case, instead of storing it in a backpack to minimise the risk of damage.

What If I Have Problems With My iPad?

iPads can be as temperamental and complex as any tablet or laptop, which is where Apple Support comes in handy. Direct support for iPad queries can be accessed on the Apple website, including a Community Answers section which draws on the expertise of your fellow users.

If it turns out that your problem can’t be resolved, you can contact Apple UK and send your iPad to them for diagnostics and repair (at a cost). The firm has a solid reputation for customer care, more so than other tablet manufacturers, so you should be in good hands. Alternatively, you could take your device down to a nearby Apple Store and see if staff can resolve the issue while you wait.

If you do need to repair your iPad, it’s important to note that any data on the device will be erased – so back up your photos or videos. The Cloud could be a good way to do this, and apps are available to transfer files easily.

How Can I Buy A New iPad?

One thing that people often note about Apple products is their price. Apple charge higher prices for their computers, phones and iPads because of their reputation for quality. Although, there aren’t many large discounts on Apple products, looking around for discounts often pays before making a purchase.

If you want to save as much money as possible, consider going for slightly older models like the original iPad Air or the iPad Mini 2, which are regularly discounted by electronics sellers. Look out for flash sales all year-round, as well as regular bargains on offer on November’s Black Friday or the New Year sales. Offers can be found from well-known UK merchants like Argos, Currys, John Lewis, Amazon and Sainsburys – along with the Apple Store itself.

HotUKDeals is the ideal place to find savings on an iPad whatever model you desire. All discounts are posted as they appear on our dedicated iPad page.
