OK Apple, Time to Bring on the New iPad Pro

Magic Keyboard Side

After a month and a half with the iPad Air, I’m ready to go back

I’ve always preferred the 12.9″ iPad Pros since I first bought one in the Summer of 2015. I know it isn’t the most popular size of Apple tablet, but it’s been the perfect one for me. That size screen has only become more useful as Apple has added features to iPadOS and enhanced things like multitasking over the past few years.

Thinking of Saying Goodbye to the iPad Pro for a Bit

I’ve owned an iPad Pro since the spring of 2016, when I picked one up used just a few months after the 12.9″ first gen device was released. It was that extra size and the brand new at the time Apple Pencil that pulled me in, but it was the additional versatility and utility of the device that kept me interested over time.

The 2020 iPad Pro: The 12.9 is Heading Back to Apple

2020 12.9 iPad Pro

It’s only been a few days, but I think I’m entering new territory here. After kicking the tires on both 2020 iPad Pro sizes, I just don’t see a compelling reason to upset my apple cart (yeah, I know) and get rid of my 2018 12.9″ Pro. I don’t have a need for LiDAR and most of the small upgrades that are included don’t impact the way I use the device at work or at home.

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.

Review: Pad and Quill Contega Thin 2018 iPad Pro Case

While I am more of a leather fan when it comes to cases, there are others who prefer the feel of a good book. Pad and Quill is a master of such materials, as I had occasion to discover this past Summer when I reviewed their Journal Notebooks. The linen-covered books were well-made and felt just like a fine hardback in the hand. When I hold the Contega case for the new 11′ iPad Pro, I get that same impression. While the cover has a rougher, more durable texture, it still feels like your iPad Pro is contained within a fine book.

Review: Pad and Quill Oxford Leather Case for the 2018 iPad Pros

I won’t lie. I’m a sucker for a nice leather case. Whether its for an iPhone or an iPad, I am always interested in wrapping my high-tech electronics in a little bit of old world craftsmanship. There’s just something about the look and feel of fine leather that gets me.

While I have reviewed several quality leather cases for various iPhones here at iPad Insight, I have never covered one for an iPad or iPad Pro until now. Well, this one has been worth waiting for, as the Pad and Quill Oxford Leather Case for the 2018 iPad Pros is as functional as it is beautiful. I’ve been taking the 12.9″ version for a spin over the last two weeks and here is what I have found.

Living with the New iPad Pros- Face ID is a Great Addition

There was a lot of speculation about how accurate and how reliable Face ID would be before the iPhone X was released last year. Those questions were answered quickly, as Apple’s TrueDepth cameras, Secure Enclave, and software combined to make a facial recognition easy to set up and even easier to use with a smartphone. After a year of success, there was little doubt that Face ID would work when it came to the iPad Pro. The question was if it could provide the additional flexibility needed to work well on a platform that isn’t centered around a single task or orientation.
