The 2020 iPad Pro: The 11″ is a Beautiful Piece of Hardware

2020 11” iPad Pro

I have owned and used the 12.9″ version of the iPad Pro since the Summer of 2016, when I first purchased a used first-gen model. Despite trying out the 10.5″ version that came in the Summer of 2017 and then the 11″ version that arrived the following Fall, I have continued to use the larger device over the next two generations.

While I have reasons why the 12.9″ size works best for me in practical, everyday use, I can’t help but prefer the 11″ version from a perspective of pure hardware build. It’s just a great balance of size, weight and capability.

Meet the New iPad Pro. Pretty Much the Same as the Old iPad Pro

2020 iPad Pro

Normally it doesn’t take too much of an update to an iPad, iPhone or Apple Watch to still get me excited. I still want to get my hands on modest upgrades and see what these new devices bring to the table. Because of this, I was typically excited when new iPad Pros were announced last week. However, as the days wore on, the realization set in that most of the “new features” that came with these Pros were really the trackpad support, which applies to all iPads compatible with iPadOS 13.4, and the Magic Keyboard, which will also be compatible with the 2018 iPad Pros.

New iPad Pros Are Coming Tomorrow…

I’m an iPad fan and have been user since the original back in 2010. And here we are. This is an iPad-centric site and new iPad Pros are coming tomorrow. Normally I would be really excited. Normally there would be exclamation marks trailing the title of this post and I would be anticipating getting home from work to get my hands on new toys. Normally, we wouldn’t find ourselves in the middle of a pandemic.

Sources Say Another iPad Pro is Still Coming in 2020, But Disagree On Features

Apple has just announced and hasn’t even delivered the latest refresh of their iPad Pros and the news of the new just can’t be stopped. The new 11″ and 12.9″ models are modest upgrades, but they are arriving along with the new mouse and trackpad features included in iPadOS 13.4, and the new Magic Keyboard that is coming in May looks pretty amazing. However, even after these announcements earlier this week, the rumors of another iPad Pro update in the Fall still persist.

Why Apple Hasn’t Admitted a Thing to Microsoft or Tom Warren

Earlier today I read an article by Tom Warren at The Verge entitled Apple finally admits Microsoft was right about tabletsI wasn’t especially surprised considering that Warren has always been completely MS-centric. He’s a good writer and does his job well, but I he’s not the guy I look to for even-handed reporting.

As a full-time Windows user myself and someone who certainly doesn’t dislike the platform, I still heartily disagree with his take in this article.

Apple’s New Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Shakes Things Up

I have wanted Apple to go all out and give us their version of a standard laptop keyboard for the iPad Pro for a while now. Even if you like the Smart Keyboard and Smart Keyboard Folio, they aren’t what I’m talking about. Those were thin, light and mobile at the expense of all else. You know, things like backlit keys. Or a key mechanism. ANY key mechanism at all.

Yesterday brought all the proof we need that new iPad Pros are coming very soon. First off, we got an old reliable indicator from across the world. The Eurasian Economic Commission, which has turned out to be a very reliable indicator of impending Apple releases, posted filings for new iPad Pros yesterday.

Ming-Chi Kuo Predicts Two Additional Mini-LED iPads for 2020 and 2021

This along with two more iPads and two more Macs

Last Fall, Ming-Chi Kuo made a prediction that Apple was developing a new 16″ MacBook Pro and a new 12.9″ iPad Pro for release in the Fall of 2020. Now he is back (via MacRumors) with a new report that Apple will have four additional devices to go with these, including two additional iPad models.

Apple May be Adding a Trackpad to the Smart Keyboard- Called It!

I will be the first to admit that I don’t have a great track record with predictions. That’s probably because I tend to swing for the fence a lot. No guts, no glory, right? Well, that philosophy leads to a fair amount of strikeouts. However, it will also net you some home runs, as well.

I can’t help but feel like I got one thanks to yesterday’s report from The Information that Apple will be adding a trackpad to the Smart Keyboard. Before getting into the details of that, let’s check the tape for a moment.

There Are Fresh Mini-LED iPad Pro Rumors

I have a feeling I’m going to end up eating my words.

So I have been pretty adamant that, short of splitting up iPad Pro sizes across several months, or creating an additional model, there is NO WAY that Apple would release upgraded iPad Pros twice in one year. However, despite my skepticism, the evidence that another iPad Pro is slated for a Fall release just keeps mounting.
