iPadOS 14 update: Apple accepts size, power, and 3rd-party defaults

At WWDC 2020, Apple revealed several big updates to the way iPad operates with iPadOS 14. This new system makes a whole lot of use out of "sidebars" as it were.

Galaxy Tab S7+ renders show Samsung’s 12-inch iPad Pro

While Apple was content to sell its iPads as larger iPhones for the longest time, Samsung was in a position to drive the tablet market space at a very early stage. It may have been too far ahead of its time, though, and Samsung scaled back most of its efforts, only for the iPad Pro to revolutionize that tablet space. Now it almost feels like Samsung is the one playing catch up instead, including with a screen size it was one of the first to try to market.

iOS 14 Safari to get built-in translation, better Apple Pencil support

iOS 14 Safari to get built-in translation, better Apple Pencil support

The Internet has made the world a smaller place but, unless you've taken time to learn multiple languages, chances are you'll come across pages that are incomprehensible to you. Translation tools and browser add-ons do exist, of course, but, in typical Apple fashion, Safari will soon have the ability to translate a page without requiring an extra package or, worse, exposing your data to third parties or even Apple itself.

iPad Pro Magic Keyboard iFixit X-Ray reveals a very busy accessory

What goes into a keyboard cover accessory? Most will probably think just the keycaps, membranes for the keys, and electronics needed to power up and connect the keyboard. That may be true for simple external keyboards but, even in appearance, the new Magic Keyboard for the latest iPad Pros is anything but simple. And thanks to the wonders of modern technologies like X-Ray, we can also see that it is true even inside.

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review: Your fingers will thank you

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review: Your fingers will thank you

It’s safe to say that I’ve waited 10 years for a proper iPad keyboard accessory from Apple. Was the wait for the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro worth it? Absolutely. It's probably better to be late to the game but have a solid product, than to deliver something that’s mediocre - I’m looking at you, Folio Keyboard - though I can't help but wish it hadn't quite taken a whole decade to arrive.

Adobe Photoshop and Fresco on the iPad now come bundled together

Adobe Photoshop and Fresco on the iPad now come bundled together

For years now, the iPad and especially the iPad Pro has become a creativity tool despite earlier limitations on hardware. Ironically, one of the biggest names in that industry has been a bit slow to jump on that train and capitalize on the passion of digital artists. Adobe has been quickly making up for lost time and money and is now making a small but meaningful change by making both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Fresco on the iPad available in a single bundle for a cheaper price.

Brydge Pro+ Review: The best iPad Pro keyboard doesn’t have an Apple logo

Happy harmony is the new iPad Pro and Brydge's Pro+ keyboard, arguably the purest and best accessory out there for Apple's laptop-replacing tablet.

2020 iPad Pro Review: Don’t call it a laptop replacement

2020 iPad Pro Review: Don’t call it a laptop replacement

The iPad is in many ways like the electric cars of the automotive world. Range anxiety is one of the biggest concerns for many EV buyers, which is why there are still so many gasoline engine cars on the road. Much the same, in laptops versus tablets, the biggest question is whether an iPad can do "enough" to replace a regular laptop. For would-be buyers of the 2020 iPad Pro, the most important question is likely whether it’ll tick all - or at least most - of the boxes to supplant a traditional laptop. While I can't make that buying decision for you, I’d like to lay out what’s new with the 2020 iPad Pro, why it's now the only "computer" I need with me on the road, and why the obsession with "replacement" may now miss the point.
