  • iPad Pro (2020) versus MacBook Air (2020): Performance & features

    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.
  • Lawsuit bemoans iPhone XR's 'inferior,' 'defective' 2x2 MIMO antennas

    My husband didn't complain at all about service issues (on Verizon) the whole year he had his XR. We're in Pennsylvania.
  • Six ways iPhone 11 Pro bests the Galaxy S20+ -- and five ways it doesn't

    I've already pulled 180Mbps on Verizon's LTE with my iPhone 11 Pro Max in my city. Seriously, anything touting "5G" at this point in the game is sales talk. Even by next year, reliable, nationwide 5G won't be there. My 11 Pro Max on Verizon is already faster than my home service.

    Oh but there's no more innovation! Apple needs to copy the copiers!

    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.
    Yep.   iOS best (except for when they make stupid changes every once in a while)  and hardware rock solid 95% of time (except for Battery and intel modems) .    Looking forward to new model this year so I can ditch my iPhone 8+.
    Battery and Intel modems? What's wrong with either, from a user standpoint? iPhones constantly perform near the top for battery life, and the 11 Pro Max is exceptionally good. Most users see zero issues with Intel modems from a usability standpoint. My 11 Pro Max has already hit 181 Mbps on Verizon's LTE in my area.

    If this happened on iPhone, people would be loosing their minds saying that Apple is violating their privacy and trust, and the stock price would've taken a hit as well...
    Does this mean Samsung knows where everyone's phones were around the world at the time of doing this?
    Of course, but I'm sure Google knows more precise locations than Shamsung does.
