A Spring iPad Pro Really is in the Air

A few days ago, I wrote the following:

There’s no way to know if the early or late rumors are correct yet, but if we don’t start seeing some actual hardware leaks soon, you can pretty much rule out early. And like I said before, don’t expect two Pro releases in one product year.

Well, it looks like that supply chain information pointing to a Spring iPad Pro update is now starting to come in.

New Conflicting iPad Pro Rumors from DigiTimes

There have been a few different rumors regarding new iPad Pros coming in 2020 going back to last year. The most common is that Apple will refresh their lineup soon, possibly as early as next month.

Music Notation App StaffPad Brings Pro-Level Composition to iPadOS

In what sometimes seems like another life, I was a music student and then a professional musician (for a little while) and a teacher (for longer). I was a percussionist all through middle and high school and absolutely loved it. I won some awards over the years and made several honor bands, including All State my senior year. I got scholarship offers to several schools and ended up attending Louisiana State University for four years to study music. I got a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance and then got my Masters’ Degree from Florida State after that.

I really disliked previous versions and I primarily tolerated the Folio because it was the only keyboard case option when the current iPad Pro released.

What Will I Be Doing With My iPad Pro Tonight?

Watching my Tigers beat Clemson for a FBS College Football National Championship! Well, I’ll be watching the game on a tv along with my Wife, Mom and Dad, but I will be using the 12.9″ screen of my iPad Pro to keep up with some of ESPN’s other feeds for the game. They go all out for Playoff and Championship Games and my tablet will help me take advantage without the need or any channel flipping.

Despite Straw Man Arguments to the Contrary, the Post-PC Era is Very Real

And it’s a good thing for ALL of us

The iPad has been with us for almost 10 years now and the personal computer hasn’t died. If anything, Windows PC and Mac sales have recovered from past swoons.  They aren’t growing as fast as they once did, but they are stable.

The Microsoft Surface has been around for close to 7 years, but all laptops haven’t suddenly adopted its unique 2-in-1 design. Some have, but the traditional laptop form factor is still with us today, and still makes up the majority of sales in the category. However, these facts do not change the fact that the Post-PC Era is very, very real.
