Is the apple pencil only compatible with the "ipad pro" or does it also work with just the plain old "ipad"? I'm considering transitioning to electronic note taking for school and would rather pay for the ipad than the ipad pro
Thanks for the very detailed review, as a marketing and management major this was an huge help in my decision to buy both. Especially for the use of Microsoft office, keep up the great videos with sharp pixel game.
Is it possible to take snapshot and write/draw on it with apple pencil like we can do in samsung galaxy note or galaxy tab S3 with S Pen. Taking a snapshot and writing/drawing on it, Possible? As far as I have seen, we just can crop the snapshot taken in ipad but cannot write or draw with pencil.
Here's how I use my iPad Pro. Keep in mind with a multicore score of 5498 and a single-core score of 3248 (same score as a 3.0 GHz i7-3540M 2013 13-inch MacBook Pro), the iPad Pro is as fast as some i5s and i7s! Most people don't even know that. So, for me 1) It's my mobile music notation device with apps like Notion iOS, TouchNotation, and NotateMe with Photoscore. I use NotateMe to scan in scores with the iPad Pro's camera(!) that I want to bring into Notion and Finale. I clean them up and print them for colored pencil analysis. Most of the time I compose with Notion iOS. Sometimes if I want to write notation with the Apple Pencil I'll use TouchNotation. The iPad Pro is an amazing mobile music production device. It's hard to believe but some the apps on the iPad are better than their Mac counterparts. 2) The Lightning connector acts as a digital interface cable connection, so I use the Lightning to USB adapter to connect my iPad Pro straight to my MacPros (I have two 12-core MPs). I have a lot of the amazing synths written for iOS on my iPad Pro plus Cubasis (which is awesome), and when I've written as much as I want on the iPad, I digitally transfer it to Digital Performer on my MacPros using StudioMux (although El Cap and above can do this natively). I use Duet to turn my iPad Pro into a Wacom like device with Notion on the Mac. With the iPad connected to the MacPro I can use the Apple Pencil to write on the iPad Pro which in this setup a like piece of notation paper, and Notion takes my writing and does Hand -Writing recognition to turn my handwritten notes into a printable score. 4) When I make my Guitar, Piano and Bass YouTube tutorials, I use my iPhone 6+ as the camera and the iPad Pro and Cubasis as the audio recorder with a MOTU interface attached. The iPad Pro is one of the best devices Apple has made in a long time. The next version with of the iPad Pro with either an A10 or A11 CPU and it's integrated graphics will do things I can't even imagine yet, and will start competing with faster i7s in terms of horsepower. You make cool videos Marques. I'm making a video about all of my uses of the iPad Pro. Come to my channel to watch it. Keep up your great work!
I'm actually getting a surface pro 3 now cuz my laptop died. Unless the iPad Pro has adobe flash, unlike the other iPads, then definitely can't use it as a laptop because I use flash everyday for school
@everybody in the world.. microsoft already did this shit and way better (with all usb and other entry plugs and adaptations) full working computer. Along with all office tools typing writing and graphic design tools fotography editing. #burned apple..get with it.
is it really worth it? Having a hard time getting over not being able to extend the memory and if I want to put something on an Apple product I can only get it from iTunes, can't download from other sources.
Honestly, in my opinion Apple is slacking off this year. The pencil is fine,but that charging looks ridiculous. However as a student I love this tablet! The duel display is insanely helpful when it comes to writing essays and PowerPoints. Since the processing is so fast lag is nonexistent. Also, this tablet feels like a dream since I'm studying drawing as well as photography and videography.
I was in college using an iPad (regular one) and my friend had a Surface Pro and I was so jealous of the fact that she could have multiple windows. She finished her project way before me on an english assignment where we had to compare two articles and write a summary. It was at that moment I wanted a Surface, now the iPad pro has this feature like a years after Windows already did it. I now have a Surface Book and I have no regrets (yet). My advice would be to look around and test many tablets and OS's to see which one works for you. Don't give any one company a free pass because it's your money and they don't care about anyone but themselves.
When Wacom devices have so many more artistic features if you are serious about drawing. Don't get me wrong, neat as a secondary option for fun with all the awesome iPad features as your main reason to buy it. Eventually, I can see them competing on professional level. There still is more work to be done.
