I remember when Steve Jobs was introducing the original iPhone and mentioned that iPhone runs OS X. While that may have been technically true under the hood, the interface was nothing like running OS X on a phone. So I'm a little bit wary when they "desktop-class" Safari is coming in iOS 13. I don't use my iPad as a laptop replacement and one big reason for that is that some desktop sites still aren't touch friendly. And by not touch friendly, I mean completely unusable. For example, some pages where there's the ability to scroll in a window within a window... those aren't usable on an iPad, or at least not with a lot of precision fingerpointing. Hopeful issues like those are solved. Otherwise, the iPad will continue to remain just a fringe device for me.
