The iPad in 2020

After summing up the iPad over the last decade yesterday, now it’s time to turn to the platform’s immediate future. So what can we expect as far as new hardware and improvements to iPadOS? Here are a few completely unscientific predictions with absolutely no sources for the new year ahead.

A Decade of iPad

We are just a few hours from the close of another decade and it’s a natural time to look back and see just how much things have changed in the last ten years. One of those big changes for Apple fans like myself has been the iPad.

Which iPad Do You Want for Christmas?

So here is a personal question for you. For those of you looking to get an iPad for yourself or someone else this Holiday season, which one do you want? Now that we have a tiered tablet lineup that covers a full range of features, sizes and price points, which one best lines up with your priorities?

Looking for an iPad for Christmas? Now is the Time to Buy!

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. If you are celebrating here in the US today, I hope you are having a wonderful day filled with family, fun and lots of good food. I am looking forward to heading next door (yes, my Holiday travel is absolutely BRUTAL) and partaking in our family’s traditional feast in about an hour. I can’t wait. For our fairly large crew, turkey is the sideshow. My Mom’s Chicken and Dumplings and Dressing are the stars of the show. I skipped breakfast to make room, so now I’m really hungry.

Ok, back to business…

iPadOS 13 in Action: External Storage Lightning Strikes

While I love several of the new features in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, the ability to use external storage is one I keep coming back to. It opens up lots of new and interesting possibilities that will make certain tasks easier and may even change the amount of internal storage in the iPads that we buy. As such, I’ve been pushing the limits to see what works and what doesn’t.

Review: UAG Metropolis for the 2019 iPad Air

I reviewed UAG’s Metropolis cases for the 11″ and 12.9″ iPad Pros earlier this year and came away very impressed with both. I can give the 12.9″ version even higher praise in that I am still using it as my primary case over four months later. It is good at home, but even better at work where I need more drop protection. In my opinion, both models check all the boxes that a good iPad Pro case should.

The New iPad Air: Stuck in the Middle with You

I spent most of yesterday taking the new iPad Mini for a spin and watching my daughter have a blast with it. Now it’s time to focus on the new iPad Air. Where the Mini felt almost foreign because I haven’t used one for so long, the new Air still feels quite familiar. Even though I didn’t hang onto it, I tried the 10.5″ iPad Pro when it was released in 2017. I really liked it, but the 12.9″ still won out, in the end.

New Goodies Have Arrived!!

 

I was out of town most of this week for a work conference, but I got back late last night to brand new Apple goodies. New AirPods, a new iPad Air and new iPad Mini had all arrived over the previous two days and were waiting for me when I got home.

Apple Gets Creative With its Spring Hardware Releases

While I was complimentary of Apple’s new iPad Pro and iPad Mini when they released Monday, I certainly wouldn’t call them Earth-shattering new devices. They weren’t meant to be. They are the middle-tier of the lineup and that’s not something you usually get very excited about. However, if we use the 5th Gen iPad as a guide, sometimes mundane but reasonably priced sells very well with everyday consumers.

The iPad Lineup Makes Sense Again!

Ever since the first iPad Pro was released, Apple’s tablet lineup have been kind of a jumbled up mess. You had models that were too close together in price and specs, like the iPad Air 2 and original iPad Pro. You had the iPad Air 2 on closeout while Apple was selling the new 9.7″ iPad Pro. The two tablets looked exactly the same and were only separated by Pencil support and a few other specs.

What’s Old is New Again: Apple Announces New iPad Air

There are few surprises in the tech world today, but we got a small one today. Apple’s online store went down in the early AM, and low and behold, we have new iPads ahead of Apple’s event one week from today! Apple threw us another change-up by going back to the name it seemingly left behind a few years ago, releasing a new iPad Air.
