Apple iPad 8th Gen 2020

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the Apple iPad 8th Gen 2020 in four minutes. Apple has released two different versions of the iPad and iPad Air. Pricing for the base model iPad starts around $329 USD and it comes in three different colours, Silver, Gold and Space Grey.

First up in the box you will find the iPad 8th Gen and the colour that we have is Space Grey. Next you get the documentation, Quick start guide, Warranty information and Apple stickers. Other accessories are USB C to lighting cable and a 20 watt USB C charging adapter. Twenty watts should charge the battery from empty to 50% in thirty minutes. Don’t quote me on that because it was hard to find any exact data on this. However Apple says you should get Up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi or watching video and 9 hours on Cellular models.

Display 10.2-inch

The 2020 iPad has a 10.2-inch LED-backlit Multi-Touch Retina Display with IPS technology. It has a 2160 by 1620-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch. And the display also has 500 nits of brightness which is fine. Here’s the viewing angels and stereo speaker test.

The display is also not laminated this means it has a small pocket of air between the LED display and the glass surface. This might make the touch feel a little less sensitive. But Unless you are use to an older iPad you might not even notice.

Slight gap on the display which might make the touch less sensitive.

In terms of size this iPad is thicker than all previous models going back to the iPad Air 1. And you do notice this. Does it really matter though? Probably not.

Space for a Keyboard – iPad 8th Gen

On the bottom, you have 3 little dots which allows you to attach an Apple keyboard. However they are expensive and not that great to type on so you might be better off with a Logitech keyboard and I will leave an Amazon link in the description.

Around the back of the iPad we have the space grey finish with colour matched apple logo.

At the back of top we have an 8 megapixel camera with a f2.4 aperture and beside that one of the dual microphone pin holes. On the top right side you have Sleep Wake power button. Along with that the another microphone pin hole and headphone jack. Down the right side you have the volume up and down buttons. On the bottom you have a lighting port and stereo speakers.

Around the hardware

On the front bottom you have the all familiar Home button and it comes with finger print unlock. There is no face unlock on this model.

The top you have a 1.2 mega pixel FaceTime HD Camera with a f2.4 aperture. Not super outstanding but it does the job.

The biggest upgrade for the iPad 2020 is that it includes the A12 Bionic processor which is a 64-bit chip. A fast processor is important when playing games and videos or when generally moving around the iPad.

And for those that are interested in the Geek Bench 4 scores here is the single and multi core scores and compassion.

The Apple iPad 8th gen is a stock standard iPad with a fast processor. And would be perfect for most people. If you are doing design work however you might want to look at the iPad Pro model instead.

Fix This Copy of the Install MacOS Application is Damaged

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you how fix the error this copy of the Install Mac OS application is damaged and it will also fix the error OS X could not be installed on your computer.

Upgrading your Mac – Install MacOS Application is Damaged

Guys if you are upgrading Mac OS or trying to do a clean install from USB you might encounter the error messages I just mentioned and the fix is easy. Open up a web browser and go to Google and do a search for the release data of the Mac OS you are trying to install. In my case its macOS High Sierra.

Install MacOS Application is Damaged
Changing the date.

As you can see hear the release date for High Sierra was September 25 2017. So to get the macOS installer to work you will need to change the time on your computers clock.

Open up the Date & Time on your Mac and unlock it with your Admin password. Once you have unlocked it take the tick out of Set date and time automatically. Set your time back to just after the release date of the version of MacOS you are trying to install. So for me iam going to set my data to October 2017. This tricks the installer file to thinking the date is 2017 and will install MacOS on your computer. Watch and see what happens now when I go to run the installer.

There you go the error is gone and the MacOS will continue to install. The Install MacOS Application is Damaged error is fixed.
