Apple updated iPads today.
- The new iPad Mini looks like something good (finally). A bit like an iPhone Xr with an 8" screen.
Apple Pencil support
Looks like your cup of cider!
What they did with the iPad Air is simply … Amazing!
What they did, you see, now get this, amazing!
What they did is (wowzers), you see, they took the iPad Pro 10.5", removed 2 speakers, updated the processor, lowered the price, and (tsk tsk) renamed it "iPad Air".
The creative genius is incredible!
It's a better price point, but otherwise it's a product I just can't find a customer for.
I don't know. I guess for another $170 (over the iPad) you get a slightly bigger screen with a faster refresh rate and a better processor.
The new Mini is a good update, and long overdue. The thing is finally something worth stocking, again. The new Air is, well, underwhelming. It's just a rebranded 2nd generation iPad Pro with a lower price. The thing is, the base iPad still does everything the new iPad Air does, but with a slower processor. Granted, the screen is better (a lot
better?) and there is a pretty big difference in the processor. However, it kind of sits in the same space as the 2017 13" MacBook Pro. It's just not "better" enough
. The 2018 iPad is so good at its price it's hard to justify anything else unless you're a creative, and then the 2018 iPad Pro is so much better
that you are better off springing for it than settling for the middle ground.
