iPad Pro Try Out

So I went to the Apple store today and to look at and spend some time with the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard. Overall I spent maybe half an hour trying out various things.

The weight and feel of this device is really nice it weights 1.6pounds same as the original iPad but spread out over more screen size 12.9inches. The screen on this device is amazing to look at and watch movies or other content like games. It has four speakers now that sound really good for a tablet and the speakers balance their sound based on where your hands may be and the rotation of the device. This devices performance is really good especially using the new iOS 9 multitasking with apps and split view being two full apps and picture in picture. The battery life is rated at 10 hours.

Also apps are hit and miss right now that fully take advantage of the screen size and power of the iPad Pro. Apps like Microsoft Office look and work great and take advantage of all the iPad Pro and iOS 9 have to offer. But apps such as the Google Sheets and Docs look and act horrible on the device sense they have not been updated.

The Apple pencil $99 is really cool to use but not all apps have been updated to properly respond to the Pencil. But apps like Apple’s Note and Procreate are really good to draw and sketch with as well as write with for Notes and One Note. But the downside with this Pencil is their is no easy way to store it like attaching it to the iPad Pro or case. Also for charging you have to take off the cap and connect it to the iPad Pro via the Lightning ┬áconnector.

The Apple Smart Keyboard $169 is a simple keyboard that attaches to the iPad Pro via the new Smart connector which powers the keyboard and creates the connection between the two devices. It is a fabric keyboard with keys that feel similar to the new Apple Magic Keyboard. The feel of the keyboard is okay to use but you would be better off buying the Logitech Create Keyboard $149.95 which is better and cheaper then Apples or buy a good bluetooth keyboard.

Going Back to College


Well I well be going back to college at Algonquin here in Ottawa. I well be taking Computer Systems Tech which is a two year diploma. I have already taking parts of this course before so I well not have to start all over. It is a very fun course but quite a lot of work two with studying, homework, and labs. It well be fun to finally get back into the swing of things working with routers and servers again and working in teams of college students. I can not wait till the fall.
