New iPad Pros Are Coming Tomorrow…

Share This:

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.

It’s hard to be to be too excited about New iPads with what’s going on in the world today. Times like these have a way of putting life into perspective and there is a long list of things that are more important to me than tech right now. Faith. Family. My friends and co-workers. Health. Security. My job.

All that said, I’m still a tech fan and I always enjoy looking at new Apple gear. That joy will be tempered tomorrow, but it’s still there. I can’t help that. It’s a part of who I am and I know I’m not alone in that. I also highly value the opportunity to write here and really enjoy getting to interact with readers. And at the end of the day, this may not be my full time job, but it’s still a job I take seriously.

The COVID-19 pandemic casts a long shadow over everything. People are dying or are very ill across the globe. Others are losing their jobs or at least find themselves temporarily unable to work. We are all surrounded by uncertainty. Writing about a new iPad Pro with all of that swirling around us may seem frivolous to many and even callous to some right now and I understand that.

However, when times are hard, a brief distraction can be a good thing. A little dose of something you are interested in can be a temporary reprieve from the steady stream of bad news. We can only take so much of that at a time. Maybe it’s just a small reminder that life will return to normal at some point. There’s just a little glimpse of normalcy in it for me.

Who knows. Maybe next year, writing about new devices won’t feel so strange and have to come with a disclaimer. I can only hope.

Stay safe out there, iPad fans .

  1. We’re all freaking out about everything that’s going on right now. In the beginning I struggled with sleeplessness but had to re-teach myself to relax and stop reading news articles every ten minutes. A healthy distraction is exactly what we need.
    I too am a huge iPad fan. There’s a book that I’ve been working on, for many years, and the iPad is at the center of it’s creation (though, lately, I have found it impossible to focus on it).
    Let me ask your advice. I have the iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9″. I skipped the 3rd Gen and have waited for this current iPad to be released before buying again. When it was released, I felt a bit disappointed that they used the A12Z chip. Felt like a modified chip from the previous model.
    The primary apps I use on my iPad are Procreate, Scrivener, Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer. I have done a bit of animation on my iPad in the past. For this I used Clip Studio, Rough Animator, LumaFusion and Garage Band.
    Do you think that I should upgrade to the 2020 iPad Pro?

    1. Thanks for reading. I definitely understand how you feel.

      As for your iPad question, it depends. If the last iPad Pro wasn’t enough to get you to upgrade and you don’t have an immediate need for the new AR features or the Magic Keyboard, then you might want to hold out a bit longer. There are still strong rumors from reliable sources that a new 12.9” Mini-LED iPad Pro is coming this Fall. If your workflow isn’t suffering, waiting that long might get you more bang for your buck.

      That said, many will tell you to never wait for updates. There always something new around the corner, so upgrade now and have no regrets. That’s easier said than done if you have a lot of extra money.

      Personally, I end up getting these devices because of my work here, but I am considering not keeping this iPad Pro and waiting myself. We’ll see. I do want to try it out first.

      1. I also read about rumors that there may be an even larger 16″ iPad Pro in the works. Do you think there’s any truth to this? OMG, if there was I would be both feet in!

        1. I haven’t seen that one from the most reputable supply chain sources yet, so it may be more wish than rumor at this point. However, I think a powerhouse device like that would go over well in the design community. There certainly seems to be at least niche interest in an even bigger Pro model. I would love to see it.
