I have the '18 iPad Pro 12.9 with Magic Keyboard Folio and Apple Pencil, and a '19 MacBook Pro 13" base. I use both daily, though I did use just the iPad Pro as my primary device for about a year. It took some adjustment, but I managed. Honestly, it might be fine for my daily use, but I really missed macOS. I do some karaoke and DJ work occasionally, and the pair is a great combination, especially for karaoke, with Sidecar. In VirtualDJ, I use the iPad Pro as the karaoke monitor. It's seamless. If you can afford both, they can make a great pair for getting work done, especially with Sidecar. Apple knocked that feature out of the park.

This is getting tiring.
iOS (and macOS and tvOS and watchOS and iCloud) are unmatched by the competition. It's not just about one OS in and of itself, but the whole package. Apple HAS innovated tremendously across platforms like no other company has, because at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is the user experience. Not feature X or Y, but true usability and reliability.
Who cares if Company A takes a feature from Company B. If it's a great idea, it's a great idea. Seems to me that iOS 13 is the gold standard and Android developers are working very hard to create a similar experience, right down to the appearance of the user interface and gestures. Apple seems to be setting the bar that the industry is reaching for, even though people claim that Apple is "copying" this and that. The only thing that matters is execution.
