Larger iPad Pros Are Not a Bad Idea and Also Make a Terrible Straw Man

IPadOS Multitasking Shelf

Anytime I see a tech journalist or blogger taking aim at the iPad for no good reason, I’m going to tee off on them. It’s already ridiculous enough when you have tech snobs looking down their noses at tablet users and their devices as some kind of lower life forms. Today, we have a writer from Tom’s Guide making what appears to be a reasonable request of Apple regarding their laptops. Unfortunately, he decided to set the iPad Pro and its users up as straw men for him to topple over (quite poorly) in his article.

Come on people. iPad users deserve better than this kind of pandering and nonsense.

So Apple HAS Thought About Making Even Larger iPad Pros

You won’t find a more consistent and reliable source for Apple information than Mark Gurman at Bloomberg. He was one of the first in what is now a growing and heavily scrutinized group of bloggers and journalists who give us varying windows into Apple’s ongoing projects, supply chain, and hardware release schedule. He’s back today with an interesting tidbit about the iPad Pro that most power users should find particularly interesting.

The New iPad Pro Has Been Out For Just Two Weeks. Now it’s Time For 2022 iPad Pro Rumors!!

2021 iPad Pro

The Apple rumor cycle never sleeps. We’ve all known this was the case with the iPhone for years now. However, today, any early Apple report is big news.

The leaker game is more competitive than ever and there is little rest and no such thing as a vacation for these guys. We got our latest example of this a couple of days ago when Mark Gurman of Bloomberg dropped a fresh report on the next iPad Pro less than two weeks after the 2021 version arrived. No rest for the weary.

2021 IPad Pro Rear Camera

It’s been over a week now and life with the 2021 iPad Pro is good. I certainly didn’t expect any different, but it’s fun to discover the little upgrades and features that separate each new Apple device from the one that preceded it.

Living with Apple’s 2021 iPad Pro: Playing Around

NBA 2K19 on the 2021 iPad Pro

Not long after I got the original iPad in the summer of 2010, I remember thinking that it could be the future of mobile gaming. I knew it would take a while to find out, but it felt like that was a real possibility. As popular as Nintendo’s DS hardware was, this massive touchscreen tablet seemed destined to be the next thing to me. Apple’s App Store was already making major inroads into gaming, and there for a while, the iPad also did quite well. However, it never did live up to all its potential.

Eleven years later, the situation is much the same. Nintendo got smart and released a console that you can play anywhere and held its ground in the mobile gaming space. Unfortunately, Apple still seems content to hang around on the margins. They occasionally add features and talk about gaming, but I think they are happy to just keep ringing the cash register that is in-app payments on mediocre fremium titles. Apple Arcade gave me some hope, but even that effort hasn’t quite lived up to expectations yet. That is really unfortunate, because the new 12.9″ iPad Pro has tremendous potential as a gaming device.

After a day of getting apps up to date and doing some basic testing, I am starting to get a feel for the new iPad Pro. There is still plenty to learn, especially when it comes finding something that will cause this hardware to even break a sweat. I haven’t gotten there yet, but it’s coming.

Living with Apple’s 2021 iPad Pro: Take it From the Top

2021 12.9” iPad Pro Box

My new Silver 12.9” iPad Pro arrived yesterday and I am finally getting to kick the tires a little. I got home around 11 PM last night, so that at least gave me enough time to set it up and get the iCloud Restore process started. That meant it was fully charged and ready to roll first thing this morning.

It’s iPad Pro Day!

2021 iPad Pro m1

Today is the day for those of us who managed to get into the online Apple Store and place our orders while supplies held out. I just checked the tracking on mine and it left Louisville, KY Thursday morning, arrived in Nashville, TN that evening, and is now showing up at the depot in my small suburb as “Preparing for Delivery.” I finally feel confident it will actually arrive today.

2021 iPad Pro Update: Cards Are Being Charged!

One of the first signs of life before any Apple product starts its journey to a new owner is the processing of the payment. Apple didn’t get rich for no reason. Nothing ships out until they get their money, but that’s no different than anything else, right?
