iPadOS is garbage, no point in paying $1000+ for macbook grade hardware when you can barely use the file explorer

I'm tempted.... Do we think the new iPad Pros are going to be drastically better with M2? Or can I get away with an M1...
Makes no difference since the software is gimped.

I'm going to go ahead and beat the dead horse - Stage Manager is a waste of time and resources - and so many iPad users detest losing the pure "iPadiness" of their iPads. Tim and Craig - get over yourselves and just let the M1 iPad Pro dual boot MacOS. The users can live with the limitations of touch on MacOS if they want (like me) to use a REAL file system and full Office 365, Photoshop, and other Mac Applications on their iPad Pros when they want a real laptop experience.

I’d imagine that M1 should be relevant for several years to come. Personally, and with an update looming, I’d be too tempted to wait and see what they have in store for the update. M2 seems a lock, and I’m sure there will be other goodies that will make it worth the wait. Obviously, it’s your call. ?

You can always find a good (maybe even better) deal on an M1 iPad Pro after the update is announced - as retailers will be looking to dump their surplus.

Speed-wise the M2 is only marginally faster than the M1 (10% for single-threaded tasks, 20% for multi), and the M1 is already overkill for most tablet applications. The addition of virtual memory means the M1 Pro's 8GB of RAM is extendable if you're running additional RAM-hungry apps like ProCreate, Photoshop, LumaFusion, or the Affinity apps. Plus you'll have full access to all of the more advanced features being added to iPadOS 16. The big question is if there are any additional features they roll out or if the upcoming update is just a speed bump and whether that's worth paying full price (or potentially more than today's models)?

I'm on an A12Z 2020 iPad Pro and really don't feel constrained by the speed despite spending a lot of time in Lightroom. I feel more constrained by the apps.

So true. I reach for my MacBook when I need to multitask. iPadOS is too compromised - even with Stage Manager.

I would kill for a MS Surface style iPad which ran iPadOS undocked, but then MacOS when attached to a Magic Keyboard. That would justify the M1/M2 silicon which is completely underutilized in iPadOS.
