I think Cory is a bit harsh. I've had every version of the iPad since my first iPad (3G) in April 2010, and it continues to be useful as a mid-way point (bicycle) between my iMac (truck) and iPhone (sports car). In fact, I had an iPad four years before I bought my first iPhone. While there are certain things that frustrate me about iPadOS, most precisley the insanity of gestures and multitasking, I love my iPad Pro and I expect I may always own one.
I’ve said I’m done with the Mac vs iPad debate, and it’s true. I’m absolutely tired of this shit. Nothing is going anywhere, it’s a stupid kind of endless trench warfare. But Ben Brooks’ latest piece about the iPad was hard to ignore in that it’s just a disheartening read and, in a few places, a fair representation of a certain type of Reality Distortion Field at work.
I’ve been a Mac owner since 2006 and an iPad owner since the very first iPad was released in 2010. I find uses for both. The right tool for the right job.
But, I agree with the tone of Riccardo’s article. I used to love reading his post to find tips to help me get more from the iPad. But I eventually removed his website from my feed reader.
I think Ben Brooks has gone from enthusiast to fanatic regarding the iPad.
Apple has confirmed that millions of iPhones and iPads are at risk in iOS 13.
I was so sure I would be safer waiting until iOS 13.1. iOS 13.1.1 should be out soon and perhaps iPadOS 13.1.1?
