I was listening to the latest podcast from Joshua Topolsky (used to be at Engadget and The Verge) who had John Gruber on as his guest. He was going through a litany of things he felt were wrong with Apple products. He mentioned the iPad Pro and said it was a bad product using the argument that he doesn’t’ know who it’s for. Well as an owner of one I could tell him that I love it because of the big, beautiful display which multi-tasking seems to be made for, the super-fast performance, and of course the Apple Pencil. Maybe the iPad Pro is nothing more than a bigger, better iPad. Maybe Apple has more changes to iOS for iPad to take advantage of the bigger display and A9X performance. It seems to me this question is mostly coming from people whose preference is a laptop/desktop and who know the iPad Pro can’t replace (yet or maybe ever). Apple’s Macs come in different screen sizes, now iPhones do too. I don’t remember seeing these “who is it for” questions when the iPad mini launched. Why does the iPad Pro have to be anything more than the most powerful iPad with a bigger screen? Honestly now that I own one going back to an iPad Air feels incredibly cramped. I don’t think I could go back. When I need to be really mobile and portability is #1 priority I use my phone. When it’s not I’m using my iPad most of the time. Pretty simple really. Why is that a hard concept for some to understand?
