I figured it was about time for me to complain about something. Can't kiss apple's butt ALL the time right? I never timed how long it took to charge my iPad Pro cause I always did it when I was asleep or busy at work or something. Today I just figured why not. I'll drain that mofo down to 10% (which is really hard to do apparently. Thing lasts forever) and then put it on the iPad charging block and time it. Good thing tonight is my night off from work because I wouldn't have been able to finish timing it. It took THAT long. I figured maybe 4 hours ish. Somewhere in that range. But this is what I got: 5 hours and 20 minutes to get to 99. Not even 100. 99! Whaaaaaaat? That's absolutely insane for a consumer device. Some people have shifts at work that don't even last that long! What I've always loved about Apple is they don't seem to rush into things. They sit back on a comfy chair and patiently wait for little developments in tech to blossom around them. Screen tech. Processors and memory. Batteries. And it's been kinda their philosophy to wait until you can "get it right" before rushing out there and just doing something. That way when you put something out there you have a more complete product. It would've made sense for them to take advantage of usb 3 charging speeds and release it with that in mind. New cable and charging brick and all. They could have even touted it as a feature to get people excited. But maybe I have a false idea of Apple in my head. After all. Remember the iPad 3? The one that was barely powerful enough to drive the display? Ughhhhh The charging speed doesn't affect me cause I charge while I sleep so I'm really complaining about nothing, but 4 hours is a stretch but you can justify it with some bs excuse. 5 and a half? No no no no. And no. And maybe a few more no's thrown in there for good measure. Ahhh. Feels good to complain about something.
