    Getting the m1 iPad pro 11 while I thought I should buy a MacBook.... the iPad looks so much better in terms of my workflow as I already own an iMac for my work stuff. iPad is definitely a better option for me than a Macbook

    I guess since this video, it was discovered that the iPad doesn't use more than 5 GB of RAM in any application, no matter how much RAM is in it. At least for now.

    Hey (this question is for literally anybody that may be able answer this or has experience regarding this), I know months late to this party, but how bad/noticeable is the bloom/bleed on this? I’ve read some things were people were pretty disappointed (upset, even) with how bad the bloom was, but I also don’t know if those complaints are coming from people that just love to complain when things aren’t absolutely, unobtainable perfect (I mean, it’s no OLED so obviously bloom/bleed are going to exist). I’m just trying to figure out to what extent the bloom/bleed exists before I pull the trigger. Thanks!

    I personally went out and bought an iPad Pro 11 inch, and I’m shocked at how liquidy smooth the performance is. I really enjoy the ease-of-use.

    Ok guys... when you say that the M1 chip is powerful, what does it mean? That the apps don't crash? That all is fast and fluid? If it's only that, I still happy on my Galaxy J3, because all is super fast,fluid, and apps never, I say NEVER crash. Ok, It's only android 5,a 2K camera, 1,5gb ram and 8GB, but just buy the Galaxy M32: 6 Gb ram, 128gb, a 32 mp camera, a 4k video camera and all this for less than $200. If I'm wrong pls explain what is the power of M1 chip because I've BIG (2 gb) 3d games and the graphics and performance are excellent. Sorry for baaaad English Bip

      Performance is mostly something that people talk about for bragging rights, and doesn’t really reflect productivity (other than niche stuff like hardware video decoding or tensor accelerators for stuff like image recognition and computational photography). In the Apple world, it also means that the device will receive more updates theoretically

      Those drive me crazy, also I’ve used a paper like and they make the iPad unbearable to use in any normal amount of ambient light and just feel really gross on your fingers.

    And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15) The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. (Psalms 14:1-4)

    I feel like I'm coming out of the dino age ahah... The first ever ipad I messed with had to have been the ones in like 2010 or 12.. and that was the last I remembered of them cause we were poor and that pad was a friends I got to play with. I recently bought my own for to-go drawing and media creation to rep my shop n bruh.. I'm blown away with how much time has passed and how different the ipad pro looks and feels compared to it's beginning, I'm so excited. How can you not like a touch screen with a detachable keyboard and pretty camera!? AAA

    Before the MacBook gets at least six ports or the iPad gets at least four ports… the “Pro” in the name is just a shame.

    I loved my older generation 12" iPad but bought the 11" last year and there is really no reason to upgrade. I'm looking forward to the 14" Mac Book Pro but still hoping to see Apple take a stand against China and slavery so not sure what I'm going to do yet going forward.

    Bro, you made a mistake. The new M1 iPad isn't 35% faster than A12z iPad, A12z iPad is 35% slower than M1 iPad. These are both different statements. Correction to your statement is that the M1iPad is 50% faster than A12z.

    At 9:42: How is he able to choose from 1440p and 2160p on the SVname app and I(on my 2017 iPad Pro 10.5”) am unable to choose anything higher than 1080p?

    This is one way to obtain the latecomers into the ecosystem garden, showing how advance this world is. Which allows time for the larger macbooks or macs to be even greater than ever when really Apple would need to prioritise pushing their software to the extreme to make the hardware 'shocking'🙃

    Honestly, there isn't better feeling to take at school full picture of the classroom board then start typing on a app on top of it. The only way i took pictures with my ipads since 2013. Awesome last though, about a Ipad like imacs in a way. Just the screen
