The funny thing that not many people know is that with Amazon's or Google's Assistants on your Device you are now dissolving your device security as they act as a way to bypass the lockdowns for the cameras and the microphone. And if you use other apps by the prior companies you basically have an insecure device all around. It is up to you, have unobstructed invasion of privacy.

I don't think that you quite understand. The sound quality of the new jack will allow for the D/A processing to be onboard the headphones/speaker instead of the laptop (like the iPhone 7). This allows for higher quality recordings to be used by the Apple platforms (Lossless audio) which will allow for a really exceptional experience...which Apple has touted as its attitude about the products it makes...always working for the best experience for the customer.
As many of the Windows people would not like to admit, the iPad Pro is a very capable computer, that can do tasks that many people do with a laptop. The amount of ports on a device are irrelivant, many things today can be done with virtual ports (iPhone losing the headphone jack, or using AirPlay technology). MS was just accommodating older users with the Surface Pro. Although the Surface Pro may have a stylus, it really sucks for this kind of input...Apple has done quite the excellent job producing Apple Pencil...which replaces other high end devices (WACOM). Anyway, my point is simple, Apple designed the iPad initially as a sketchpad vs. MS which wanted to produce another version of the PC. All-in-all they each do something better than the other. I don't call running MS Office 360 a great deal either.
