Here is your guide to the news and rumors that came out this past week:

iPad Pro Put on Hold

A report from DigiTimes suggests that the larger iPad, code-named ‘iPad Pro‘, will be on hold for now because of the lack of support from developers and ecosystems. ┬áThe iPad Pro was rumored to be released later this year, but if we see it, it will likely be in 2015.

iPhone 5c Ads Spotted on Yahoo!, NYT.com, Rolling Stones

Tim Cook announced earlier this year that the response for the iPhone 5c was less than anticipated so these new advertisements seem like Apple is trying to promote their underwhelming phone. The ads online are interactive, which is something Apple has stayed away from in the past.
