  • Watch Apple's iPad Pro chew through Fortnite at 60fps

    It’s a powerful iPad, no doubt. Speaking only for myself, the lack of a headphone jack to accept recording studio standard equipment killed the possibility of me buying one for now. I consider this exclusion a shortsighted decision. Surely no “pros” expected Apple to do that.

    I don’t care about Fortnite in the slightest and I’m not going to spend about $2K for a new iPad that’s incompatible with most of my industry standard audio gear.

    Apple sometimes leads in the wrong direction on product design, IMO. They’re not perfect and that’s OK.
    Serious question here: why can't you just use the Apple lightning headphone adapter?  It is tying up the port or the sound quality or an objection to extra cords?
    We have been down this road many times here. With only one port some kind of dock is required for audio pros to use the iPad in many ways that made an iPad worth using in the first place.

    Of course there are still many uses for the new iPad Pros and no doubt it is a powerful device. The weird thing is that it throws a real curveball to a large market for which a powerful tablet is an ideal piece of gear.

    Exactly. A better name might be iPad Gamer. Not iPad Pro.

  • How to master Split View and Slide Over for iOS apps

    Nice article. It really is worth a few minutes exploring these features. I remember stumbling onto split screen in Safari but could never repeat it. Now it is perfectly clear and simple.

  • Apple issues third developer betas for iOS 12, tvOS 12, watchOS 5 [u]

    I'm running the public beta of iOS 12 on my iPad Pro, am having a little weirdness when trying to reply to posts on AI forums in Safari -- when the keyboard slides up the web content above it fails to slide up, so the keyboard covers the text input box and you can't see what you're typing. Anybody else see this?
    Yes but it was in ios11also on certain websites. I found that switching from landscape to portrait got everything in line.

  • Apple issues first public betas of iOS 12 and tvOS 12

    I really felt like I had little to lose so I put the beta on a mini 2. It is a welcome update. The mini 2 is actually fun to use again. Very responsive indeed.
