Apple Shares New Videos Highlighting What iPad Pro Can Do
Apple today uploaded six new videos focused on showing off iPad Pro features, continuing on with its "What You Can Do With iPad" series promoting the new 11 and 12.9-inch tablets.
Most of the videos are over a minute long and feature different iPad Pro apps, features, and capabilities, ranging from handwriting a note with Apple Pencil to creating music.
Multitasking with multiple windows, making notes with Apple Pencil, browsing the web, using Maps, watching videos, reading with the Books app, annotating photos, using drag and drop, video editing, typing with both the on-screen keyboard and the Smart Keyboard Folio, and making music with GarageBand are all shown off in the video.
Apple also highlights charging the iPhone with the iPad Pro, shooting in 4K, plugging in USB-C accessories, and Group FaceTime.
Several third-party apps are shown off in the videos, such as LumaFusion, Animation Desk, NBA 2K, Felt, Notability, Trello, Calm, Procreate, Affinity Designer, Impress, Universe, and more.
All of Apple's videos link to a "Look what you can do with iPad Pro" website that first launched in January. Apple says that all of the videos were filmed with the iPad Pro, as were the previous videos in the series.

- Replace a computer/Mac.

- Connect freaking headphones.
- Run professional software for anything other than drawing.
- Run full on Matlab, X-code and many engineering applications a pro really uses to get work done.
- Browse webpages that rely on horizontal and vertical scrolling (there is a website I have to use daily that my iPad doesn’t support, so even for browsing it cannot replace my computer).
- Play all sorts of video and audio files natively.
- And many more.
iOS needs to mirror the Mac more... It also really could benefit from floating windows. The full-screen stuff and only some apps working side by side really makes it even worse to try and be productive on.
The iPad Pro feels like what "Could Be"... imagine the standard Macbook that everyone loves to hate, with the iPad Processor, in the iPad Pro form factor... Running iOS when no keyboards are connected, and Mac when you connect accessories.
