Apple Shares New Videos Highlighting What You Can Do With an iPad Pro

Apple today uploaded a new series of iPad Pro videos to its YouTube channel, showing off the different features and capabilities of the new devices.

There are five videos, focusing on taking notes, going paperless by scanning documents, hosting a podcast, designing a space with the Measure app, and creating a presentation in Keynote. Each video is about a minute long and is done in a tutorial style to walk users through each task.






In the videos, various ‌iPad Pro‌ features and functions are shown off, like multitasking, the Apple Pencil 2, the camera, Files drag and drop, AirPlay, augmented reality, the USB-C port for attaching accessories, and more. A few specific apps are mentioned, such as Keynote, GarageBand, and Notability.

This is Apple's first set of ‌iPad Pro‌ tutorial-style videos, though the tablet was previously featured in a video focusing on five reasons why the ‌iPad Pro‌ can "be your next computer."

Apple's 11 and 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ models were first introduced in late October and shipped out in November. The iPads feature edge-to-edge displays with Face ID and no Home button, powerful A12X processors with performance on par with many Mac notebooks, USB-C to connect to 4K monitors and USB-C accessories, and thinner bodies.

The 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ starts at $799 for 64GB of storage, while the 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ starts at $999, also for 64GB of storage.

This is great, but you can do all this stuff with the budget iPad as well.
Apple need to start delivering on this "Pro" moniker and release some "Pro" apps which actually take advantage of the power of the device (and price tag).

I love how they always show these super basic tasks and think its a computer replacement. Writing a word, adding a picuture etc. is not really PRO nor doesn't show how really "computer replacement" it really is. As mentioned, all that could be done on budget iPad.

Maybe Apple is targeting grandmas and grandpas :-D

Looks like they are presenting a toy for people pretending they do actual work.

And more to the point you can do all that stuff with a Surface device and have the benefit of full desktop compatibility, superb collaboration tools, excellent cloud integration and a real file manager.........

My iPad Pro is a super expensive reader and note-taking device. It is great at that, but hardly a computer replacement and Apple probably could have built something that works just as well for half the price.
