I finally broke down and loaded the iOS 11 first beta on my new 12.9″ iPad Pro this weekend. Unfortunately, with this being the first version of the beta, doing so has pretty much rendered this device useless other than for testing the new OS. Several apps are crashing, and there are plenty of rough edges, just as you would expect for a beta release at this juncture. However, one thing I have noticed is that Multitasking is actually pretty polished, even in this initial release. Multitasking has triggered a few crashes, but it is stable for the most part, and the scrolling, gestures, and motions are all fluid and work well.
A world of computers and gadgets has one unpleasant side-effect- a world of cables cluttering up your life. All of those devices have to have power and be charged. The price of wireless accessories is that now, even our keyboards, mice, headphones, and headsets have to be charged, as well. I know my office desk is overrun with cables on a daily basis for this very reason.
If you are an Apple Watch user, then you know that a charging stand makes life with the magnetic “puck-style” charger much easier to deal with. The problem is finding a dock that either offers additional functionality, and/or is available at a great price.
