    Most of the features they announced apply just as much to the iPad as the iPhone?

    the assumption being the iPhone and iPad are the exact same devices so the iOS should be identical


    that's why iPad sales plummet every year

    Yeah, the updates to iOS 10 are extremely underwhelming. I was hoping for significant updates for the iPad but there was really nothing whatsoever. Frankly I'm not sure this company is moving in a cohesive direction anymore.

    Afraid that is it folks. I did not expect much but this was underwhelming.

    The only iPad feature I noticed was side by side Safari windows. Other than that, the device was completely neglected in the development of iOS 10.

    Consumption device for you, maybe. Production device for me.

    It's just becoming an embarrassment to call an iPad Pro a pro device without certain features that are necessary to be deemed a pro device (mouse/trackpad support, multiple Microsoft office apps being opened, better icons that relate more to a desktop workspace, and a true file manager). Google's chrome OS chromebooks are starting to look more enticing now especially with the introduction of android apps, all we need is Samsung or some other major company to make a luxury hybrid tablet/laptop device with chrome OS to win me over.

    Do you ever notice just how few Apps are designed especially for the iPad UI ... almost ALL Apps say OPTIMIZED for iPhone, in the details.

    Pretty sure it is market saturation for declining tablet sales....just like any newer product segment.

    iOS 10 has support for raw photo editing.
    Raw files are the digital equivalents of the old analogic negatives, while Jpegs are the equivalent of developed pictures.
    Raw support is crucial in any serious photography work, but it's pretty complicate and only a few companies can affort to do it, like Adobe. Apple is one of these companies, as macOS has supported raw formats for years. Up to version 9, iOS has only supported storing raw files, not editing them. In iOS10, third party apps should have access to apple raw photo engine. The same engine that is used in Photos for macOS, the same engine that Aperture used.

    I mean, you gotta give up something. If you need "pro" level of computer, get desk top or laptop and give up their portability. iPad Pro is Pro on iPad, not suppose to be working like desk top or laptop completely, but having much better battery hours and its portability compare to desktop/laptop. iPad Pro isn't notebook, and not everyone wants keyboard, if I want keyboard with iPad, I'll bring my MacBook Pro instead. iPad with mouse? Yeah sure it's maybe nice to some of you, but it's also killing iPads portability, if you have to bring attachable keyboard, mouse and whatever with iPad.

    I'm not sure how many hours before battery goes off on other Windows "tablet" or "hybrid" things, they run 9-10 hours without charging like iPad though?

    I think some people are just rediculous, wants to have something best for everything. And you know that's not gonna happens. If you want to use several heavy software at same time, you need stronger CPU and memory, and those takes space and weight. If you want portability, gotta take off things you can take off as much and makes those attachable. I don't think what Apple do for iPad and laptop and desktop anything wrong. All those made for different priority.

    Support for Raw photo editing was one of the main things I was hoping for!!! Now I don't need a Mac do edit my raw photos, my only question is how do I get my raw photos quickly onto iPad

    Well good news, you can edit your raw files on your iPad today: :)
    give photoshop express a try. It's free and also pretty decent.
    Lightroom should also have full raw support soon (it already works if you know the trick to enable it).
    Still, having access to apple raw engine is a very good thing.

    To get raw files on your iPad you can Airdrop them from your mac or use a Lightning to usb/sd adapter

    Yep definitely not neglected, it gets the same improvements as iPhone, plus a few improvements of it's own. You can't say it's neglected when it's more than what Android or Microsoft is doing for their tablet devices.

    definitely disappointed in lack of new "features" for this new segment they created - the iPad Pro, which Apple themselves compares to a laptop and it certainly feels like iPad is being ignored. Simple things like better slide over app organization, enabling two instances of apps system wide (which they just did with safari), system wide PIP and split view. Too much to ask? hardly.

    When is the iPad not ignored? As long as the iPhone remains the cash cow, the iPad will always be lower in their priority list.

    I don't think this was a mind-blowing update, but I don't think IOS was really underwhelming to begin with. I don't see where an external mouse or trackpad would be needed? You have the trackpad in the built in keyboard, your finger or Apple Pencil is your pointer. You can absolutely have multiple Office applications open, and what is wrong with the current icons? Not going to turn this into an Android/IOS debate, but when you have your Android tablet for 1 1/2 years and have to either wait or not get the latest OS......

    I really would only need a mouse or trackpad when using the Apple keyboard when I'm not using the built in keyboard. You cannot have multiple instances of the same app open at the same time (i.e. 2 different word documents open in side by side windows).

    Yeah! The iPad will remain a toy until it gets a keyboard, mouse, and runs full OSX. You know, like a MacBook.

    Wake up Apple, we won't stand for these non-MacBook iPads. I swear I'll go buy an Android tablet, because it's exactly like a full desktop OS!!

    Pretty much the only two things iPad specific were split screen safari, and Swift Playgrounds. A ton of stuff seems to be 3D touch only (Like the improved notifications...that should be interesting given neither iPad can use them, nor the iPhone SE.)

    My biggest disappointment is that the slideover UI still sucks and the multitasking UI also still sucks on the iPad.
