Living with the New iPad Pros- Trying the Dark Side Again

Back in March of 2017, I vented about how much I disliked Apple’s various keyboards, especially the iPad Pro Smart Keyboard. To be honest, dislike didn’t really go far enough. I had very briefly tried the Smart Keyboard before that and then tried it against thinking that I might have a different opinion the second time around. Going back and being disappointed again frankly just pissed me off and I went from dislike to hatred and disgust. Yeah, I know. It’s just a keyboard….that still cost $139 on Open Box sale.

Where Are All the New iPad Pro Cases?

One advantage that you have owning Apple products is access to a robust and thriving ecosystem of accessories. This is especially true for mobile devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. As soon as a new device releases, everyone from the major brands, to boutique and custom makers, to no-name sellers on Amazon and eBay are either announcing new cases or already have them available.

Living with the New iPad Pros- First Impressions

For whatever reason I can’t catch a break when it comes to my job and Apple events and device releases lining up. I got both the 12.9″ and 11″ iPad Pros and the new Apple Pencil yesterday, but all I had time to do was record an unboxing video. I set both devices up, restored them from backups and tested them for just a few minutes, but unfortunately, that’s all I had time for. I ended up working until the wee hours, so I didn’t have a chance to share any first impressions of Apple’s latest and greatest

A Render of the New 12.9″ iPad Pro Surfaces…Maybe

Photo Source: MySmartPrice

Some new reports of the potential upcoming iPad Pros surfaced yesterday. MySmartPrice and noted device leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known as Steve H on Twitter, posted a render of the supposed new 12.9″ iPad Pro based on earlier CAD design leaks. I say supposed because both sources are clear that they aren’t 100% sure about this information.

So Which iPad Pro Are You Interested In?

As clear and consistent as the rumors have been, I think we can take them at face value at this point. New iPad Pros with little to no bezels, Face ID, and no Home Buttons are on the way, and could be here as soon as mid-September. Reports have also been consistent that both current sizes, 10.5″ and 12.9″, will be upgraded.

If You’ve Been Looking at the iPad Pro, This Week is a Great Time to Buy [Update- Sale Ends Tonight!]

As the new “default” iPad Pro screen size, the 10.5” model is the one that most users are going to gravitate toward. I may be a hard-core fan of the 12.9” model, but I can understand why. It’s cheaper, smaller, lighter, and packs just as much punch as it’s larger sibling.

Size Matters- Who Prefers a Smaller iPad?


On Monday, I asked if anyone cared about the 12.9″ iPad Pro, and many of our readers took the time to tell me that they definitely do (and a BIG thank you to all who took the time to join in the discussion). I was actually surprised at how much enthusiasm was expressed for the device. I see now that I’m not alone in preferring the larger size of the original model, and that several fellow users have some really cool and unique use cases for which the larger screen is advantageous. It’s always great to share experiences like that and learn from fellow users. The 12.9″ model may not have as much Apple marketing push behind it these days, but it is obvious to me that it should continue to have a place at the iPad table.

Size Matters- Does Anyone Still Care About the 12.9″ iPad Pro?


When the 12.9″ iPad Pro was released in November of 2015, it definitely caused a bit of a stir. A device with a larger screen than many laptops, new multitasking features, and advanced stylus support demanded that we rethink what the iPad was and what it could be. Considering that the momentum had last swung in the opposite direction with the release of the iPad Mini and its successors, the iPad Pro was a definite departure from the norm. I’m pretty sure that is exactly what Apple wanted at the time.
