iPad Pro is a computer from the future, with software from yesterday

Craig Mod has a lot to say about iOS on iPad. Read the whole article. Some of his conclusions point you to why I am going in all the way:

Buy one of these new iPads. They’re seductive beyond reason. Buy it knowing well what its limitations may be. But knowing also that it will get better. That its engine is years ahead of its software. And in owning one you’ll be able to follow along as a contemporary operating system matures in real-time, beta-by-beta, before your very eyes. It’s not often we get to enjoy this.

For now, though, the iPad is still good for writing. Amazing for sketching. Reliable as a tank.

That is exactly what I am looking for.

Die neue Hardwareist wirklich sehr schick. Apple schafft es immer, die letztjährigen Produkte unglaubliche alt aussehen zu lassen.
Mein iPad Pro 10,5 möchte ich direkt eintauschen.
Aber schon beim 10,5 ist die Engine vor der Software, natürlich nicht so weit wie die neuen.
Den Reifungsprozess kann ich aber auch von der Warte 10,5 verfolgen, auch wenn die neue HW schreit „du willst mich doch“.
Ein 12,9 hatte ich zwei Wochen, das wollte aber nicht recht in die üblichen Hotelsafes passen. War nicht der Grund es gegen das kleinere zu tauschen, aber war unpraktisch. Passt das neue 12,9 rein?

I still find it much more convenient to use a touchpad than to raise my hand from the keyboard to touch something on the screen. Is this something you get used to?

Tobias, ich habe da vor 5 Jahren mal was für Heise gedreht. https://youtu.be/V9oP-TrTckc

Ich finde, das ist der unsicherste Ort im Hotelzimmer. Nimm lieber das oberste Brett im Schrank.

Joachim, na klar.

Danke Volker. Da schüttelt man den Kopf.
