New iPad Pro ad continues Apple’s computer replacement mantra

New iPad Pro ad continues Apple’s computer replacement mantra

The new 2018 iPad Pros are simultaneously the most beautiful iPads Apple has made and probably the most divisive ones as well. While it finally got the Apple Pencil right and threw away thick bezels, it also ruffled not a few feathers when it threw out the headphone jack as well as the lightning port for a multi-talented but only half useful USB-C. The biggest controversy, however, might not be in any hardware or feature. Instead, it’s in how Apple kept on hammering the idea of the new iPad Pros as computer replacements, as emphasized by its latest video ad.

Watch the 12.9-inch iPad Pro teardown reveal Apple’s secrets

Watch the 12.9-inch iPad Pro teardown reveal Apple’s secrets

Yesterday, iFixit published a teardown of the 11-inch 2018 iPad Pro and the results were less than stellar. Unlike some other recent Apple devices - specifically the Mac mini and the new MacBook Air - the 11-inch iPad Pro turned out to be something of a DIYer's nightmare, with gobs of glue holding everything down and making repair troublesome. Today, iFixit is taking a look inside the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and if you were hoping for a different outcome, we're sorry to say that you're probably going to be disappointed.

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

Nobody can agree on whether a tablet is a computer, or indeed what a computer really is, and Apple's new iPad Pro only pours fuel into that controversy. Faster, more flexible, and more resolutely targeting professionals who demand performance with their portability, nobody can argue with the fact that the 2018 iPad Pro is Apple's hardware expertise in full effect. Whether it's a replacement for your laptop, though, is a far more personal thing.

iPad Pro review roundup: The good, the bad, the USB-C

Apple's iPad Pro is more than a tablet but not quite a computer, according to the first batch of reviews, but it's not the hardware that gives testers pause for thought. Announced last week, the tablet - complete with its magnetically-clinging Apple Pencil stylus and Smart Keyboard Folio case - aims to replace your laptop, but how feasible that is hinges on a number of factors.

I love the MacBook but it’s getting lost

Creatives have a shiny new iPad Pro, while MacBook Air die-hards have an all-new Retina model, but where does that leave the 12-inch MacBook? Apple's thinnest, lightest laptop has been controversial from day one, its single USB-C port and low-profile keyboard forcing some not-insignificant compromises in return for its extreme portability.
