Twitter Now Lets You Listen to Audio in App While Browsing Your Timeline


Twitter users can now listen to songs, podcasts and other audio content in their timelines within the Twitter app, while continuing to scroll through other tweets.

Twitter rolled out a new version of its Audio Cards on Thursday with SoundCloud and Apple as launch partners, showcasing the new experience with music tweets from the Foo Fighters, David Guetta and Chance the Rapper.

The update for Twitter's iOS and Android apps allows users to expand the audio card for more details or dock the audio player with one swipe in order to keep browsing through their timelines, unlike in the past when users had to leave that audio tweet or open the audio file in a browser to continue skimming tweets.

Apple's iPad Mini 3: The First Look


Apple added yet another option to its lineup of small tablets on Thursday in the form of a third-generation iPad mini. The new iPad mini 3 boasts a a 7.9-inch display and comes in silver, space gray and gold.

But the update was the bare minimum. While the latest iPad mini with retina display is faster and includes Touch ID, it's still running the same A7 chip as the previous mini, and is the exact same thickness as the last model. Apple may be betting that some will choose the mini over the iPad Air, though, because it's so much lighter.

Apple iPad Air 2: Hands On


Apple didn’t exactly confound expectations with the iPad Air 2. It still looks like the iPad we know (and many love). Put broadly, the tablet adopted the expected Apple iPhone’s specs, in particular a new 8-megapixel iSight camera (and all the features that come with it, sans optical image stabilization) and Touch ID fingerprint reader on the home button.

On the other hand, there were some surprises. Few predicted that the iPad Air would get thinner and lighter, but it did. It went from 7.5 millimeters down to 6.1mm, which actually makes it noticeably thinner than the iPhone 6, which is 6.9mm thick.

How to Rewatch the Entire Apple iPad Air 2 Event


If you didn't have time to watch Apple's big iPad event live (or if you didn't feel like opening Safari), don't fret. Apple posted its full keynote from Thursday's event, during which the company unveiled two new iPads.

Among other things, Apple revealed a launch date for Apple Pay, the iPad mini 3, a super-thin iPad Air 2 and an iMac with retina display.

Other highlights from the event included a phone call with Stephen Colbert (a.k.a. Apple's new chief of secrecy), plenty of dad jokes and a controversial pronunciation of GIF.
