    Hi All, hopefully someone knows if/when/why or why you can't ever have multiple users for a iPad pro. What is stopping the machine from loading a profile set up to that individual fingerprint or passcode?

    An iPad pro as a PRO tool is pushing well beyond £1000 in the UK and you can get an army of laptops or notebooks for that, so why do I have to buy one machine for EACH user in Apple world?

    iPad has allowed for classroom user case. One step closer to true multiple users.

    But yeah. Not many will feel happy when they find they cannot share an iPad Pro within a family after buying one.

    Apple wants you to buy an iPad for each person.

    But it's time iOS allows for several users.

    Nobody claims this never will change. I guess it's a current limitation of the OS and looking how people use iPads it's probably not the highest priority for a feature to develop.

    I cannot see why it has to be that way. Surely it is time to share equipment. If it works in the classroom there is no excuse for it not to work outside the classroom.
