    I think something that some people need to remember about the iPad is that it isn't aimed at hardcore power users, its aimed at people who need a device for watching Netflix, typing up word documents and doing some basic file managment, and the ipad does all those things perfectly well after the release of ipad OS and can even be used to do some real work now. but i think everyone knows that if you have a high budget and want something thin, light and portable, those people buy a mac, a razer blade pro, or an LG gram

    Apple is trying to reinvent the computer. They want the change the definition of the word "computer". "A new way to use a computer".

    The mouse has been on computers since 1968. Nothing new here. The MacBook will be obsolete one day. Computing is all about getting things done. If the iPad can do it efficiently then it’s a feasible replacement for a pc or Mac. The iPad Pro is a game changer because of usb-c which combined with a hub allows it to be a desktop machine when connected to a monitor and peripherals.

    I think mouse support is just being teased and tested. In iPadOS 14 it may just be like the mouse on a macbook

    Likes this just for the elephant in the room comment. 😂 And so true about apple should release a touchscreen MacBook Pro. I reached and touched my MacBook screen and only realised after 5 seconds that the screen wasn’t a touchscreen. 😂.

      Touchscreen laptops are overrated. Eveyone does it, it doesn't substantially bring things to the user experience. I have owened numerous laptops and have never once wished my laptops that dont have touchscreens had them. It doesnt make sense for the role they play. The laptops that I have used/owened with touchscreens served a purpose, but that purpose is not something relevant to Apple IMO with their lineup.

    I remember using my blackberry as a mouse and keyboard with my blackberry playbook. It worked phenomenally. I did several school submissions like that.
    Ya’know, as a musician, I’d love to try using an iPad Pro for 1: taking photos of my music 2: performing using those photos and 3: writing/note taking during my lessons at UBC. In the past this has gone very badly for my colleagues.

      Honestly, I used to be a massive Apple hater, but the A12X is so ahead of its time. If Apple keeps up this ARM architecture progress, I'm gonna have to get used to macOS.

    Multiple youtubers, students, and content creators have replaced their laptops with iPad pros. It’s just you gotta accept the new ways of using an iPad as compared to as a laptop. Obviously a laptop comes with its huge advantages, like I miss the trackpad. But ever since I got an iPad and the brydge keyboard, I’ve been using it for typing up business reports, replying to emails and more importantly photo editing. It’s more fun to use and just gets things done easily. iPad OS is a great change and really makes the transition from laptop to iPad a lot easier and more compelling. Especially with the iPad pros insane processing and graphical power now, expect them to be doing a lot more in the near future.

    The only thing arguably more infuriating than Apple NOT incorporating full file management and full mouse compatibilty on the new IPADs & OS, which all users are familiar with, is Linus Sponsor segues. There are no doubt millions of Linus Effigy Voodoo dolls worldwide, with billions of darts in them because of those annoying ad segues with Marquis de Sade timing replete with smarmy, guilt ridden excuses for every breakaway😀.

    I’m waiting for the day Apple will bring an OS for their tablets that’s finally a full OS with mouse support.
    I need a laptop replacement but I don’t want a surface.
    I’ll use my big and slow ass laptop until Apple gets it.
    Fingers crossed for next year..

    At the end of the day the iPad is what it is because it uses a mobile software if it used something like mac os it would never have that feel. That is why apple limited the features of ipad os
