It’s been over a week now and life with the 2021 iPad Pro is good. I certainly didn’t expect any different, but it’s fun to discover the little upgrades and features that separate each new Apple device from the one that preceded it.

Living with Apple’s 2021 iPad Pro: Playing Around

Not long after I got the original iPad in the summer of 2010, I remember thinking that it could be the future of mobile gaming. I knew it would take a while to find out, but it felt like that was a real possibility. As popular as Nintendo’s DS hardware was, this massive touchscreen tablet seemed destined to be the next thing to me. Apple’s App Store was already making major inroads into gaming, and there for a while, the iPad also did quite well. However, it never did live up to all its potential.

Eleven years later, the situation is much the same. Nintendo got smart and released a console that you can play anywhere and held its ground in the mobile gaming space. Unfortunately, Apple still seems content to hang around on the margins. They occasionally add features and talk about gaming, but I think they are happy to just keep ringing the cash register that is in-app payments on mediocre fremium titles.

According to Mark Gurman, I Guessed Right About the iPad Pro Release

I wrote about some of the rumors that Apple’s coming iPad and MacBook Pros could be delayed and/or severely constrained a couple of days ago. Based on what little we knew at the time, I guessed that Apple would still release their new iPad Pros soon, even if the models have to be staggered and are only available in limited quantities.

Today we got some trustworthy reporting that’s making me feel pretty good about that educated guess.

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.
