I was expecting iPad OS to launch with Pro Apps like FCP and Logic Pro. There’s no sign so far. The device still feels like a Focus running a Mustang engine.

Watching iPadOS development is like watching the knight guy in Monty Python and the Holy Grail endlessly running towards the castle. Before it’ll mature, M1 Pro will belong to a museum.
