I screwed up. A while back, while I was filming a gag for our iPad Pro review新皇冠体育app, my work laptop — which I haphazardly propped on the arm of my couch — slid off and took a nose-dive onto the corner of my coffee table. So long, Retina display. Since then, I’ve spent most of my days plugging away on a desktop PC, but it wasn’t long until the urge to work on a couch, or in a chair, or literally anywhere that wasn’t my Ikea desk began to consume me. Thankfully, the showed up just as my mania was hitting its peak.
With my MacBook screen totally borked, I spent the last few days writing this review on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and Apple’s new keyboard, because I demand the ability to write anywhere I damn well please. (Well, within the confines of my apartment, anyway.) More importantly, the Magic Keyboard and its trackpad are further evidence of a shift in Apple’s tablet strategy that started to take shape with iPadOS, making the line between iPads and full-blown Macs thinner than ever. The Magic Keyboard might not be my ideal solution, and it’s pricey compared to some of the third-party options. But its technical elegance and the fact it draws inspiration from Apple’s much-improved MacBook keyboards, make this the best all-around option for being productive on your iPad Pro.
