The New iPad Pro Is the Last Great Tablet

The standalone tablet is all but dead. It’s been supplanted by 2-in-1s like the Surface Pro, which promises the excellent content consumption powers of a tablet, crossed with the actual productivity of a real laptop. Still, Apple has defiantly continued to make a tablet – both the budget iPad that was refreshed in March, and the more productivity-friendly iPad Pro that was just released. The budget iPad is nice, but thanks to a few tricks, like Apple Pencil support, USB-C, and a great-looking display that can chew through any content thrown at it, the iPad Pro is better. This is the last great tablet. Read More >>

Who the Hell Needs a Fancy iPad Anyway?

The iPad has always been a fantasy, and even as the device is more powerful and beautiful than it’s ever been before, I can’t bring myself to understand why most people would ever want one. Read More >>

The iPad Pro Is Finally Making a Case for Itself

The iPad looks like it’s finally poised to stop being a movie watching machine and actually fulfil the promise Apple has repeatedly proselytised: that the iPad is a productivity machine. A new processor, better application support, and a few tweaks to the design have further brought the iPad Pro into a space where it could—conceivably be a competitor to actual 2-in-1s like the Surface Pro or even the Pixel Slate.

What’s Going to Happen at Apple’s iPad and MacBook Event Next Week?

A month after Apple revealed a new smartwatch and a new iPhone lineup that finally does away with the home button once and for all, the company will hold a follow-up event next week that’s tag-lined, “There’s more in the making.” A new, home button-less iPad Pro seems likely, but what else does Apple have planned to round out 2018?

Apple Sure Has Some Weird New Hobbies

Forget the HomePod or the latest version of iOS. The big news out of WWDC was related to something that Apple, and most consumers, don’t really care about: Virtual Reality. In between Kaby Lake refreshes and Siri voice demos, Tim Cook announced a wide range of software and hardware changes that will finally bring VR to macOS, and that’s pretty damn surprising because Tim Cook himself is on record as giving exactly zero shits about VR.

9.7-Inch iPad Pro Review: Yes, You Want One

Tablets haven’t had a great time lately. In the last two years, sales have plummeted and production has slowed to a crawl. While a lot of that is due to the fact they don’t have the manic upgrade calendar of traditional computers or smartphones, it’s also because they’re really all about consuming the internet. You don’t need the latest processor or most whiz bang GPU to do that. You need something that’s good enough. And for most consumers the tablet they already own is “good enough.” Read More >>
