    Helloooooo please get your knowledge right before you make a video and make a fool of yourself. The face id is workable in all angles. Horizontal and vertical and upside down and if your fingers is blocking it a arrow immediately pop up to tell u.

    Never could be your computer:

    No graphics card
    outdated hardware
    no real files (They are stored in badly made cloud things)
    no ability to use Exe or emulators.
    very overpriced
    pen needs charging unlike samsung's pen
    Looks modern, but isn't

      Wow I never saw a comment that dump.
      1 no graphic card:
      It has the same graphic power of a xbox 1s, it is by far the best graphic card even saw on a tablet.
      Outdated hardware: it has the latest chip from Apple that is fast like the i9 MacBook!!!!
      Another time something that we never saw in a tablet.
      3 bad storage...
      It can get up to 1 terabyte of storage.
      4 It can’t run exe or emulators...
      Now tell me a tablet with a mobile OS that can run exe or emulator.
      5 very overpriced.
      It depend on what model you pick.
      If you pick the 11” 64gb is really good for what it offers.
      6 the Apple Pencil charge weir less at touched to the iPad.

    Brian Tong, I got rid of my iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) and replaced it with a Thinkpad X1 Yoga OLED and will never go back. It’s comparable in price, and the Yoga has a better screen and is a real computer.

    7:00 I get what you’re saying but that is just lazy. It takes 2 seconds and I find on my iPad Pro it’s Face ID is a lot easier and overall better than Touch ID because it is quicker and more accurate.

    I just used mine to edit all the photos I took from a paid shoot. It was very nice to edit on in Adobe Lightroom CC. It’s nice that all my raw photos sync to the adobe cloud and to my NAS drive at home along with the edit .xmp files. Once I’m done I delete the project from my iPad and the cloud to free up space and can access from the NAS drive at anytime. I’m finding work arounds that really aren’t inconvenient it’s just not what I’m use to. I think iOS will get to be more convenient but we will also have to find different ways of doing things.
    Apple is almost on the 13th iteration of iOS and hopefully they’ll add some features such as external hard drive usage etc. Ultimately the apps I’ve used are very fast and in some cases faster than a fully loaded iMac like mine. This seems to be due to very optimized code. In the future we may look back and think how clunky OSX was. Today it doesn’t seem that way but I honestly think we’ll see iOS eventually take over once apple goes back to using their own processors in laptops and desktops. Time will tell.

    Hey Brian, you mentioned reading digital comic books on your iPad Pro. Which app do you use (recommend) for Manga? Do you know if Manga Rock a good contender? It’s certainly the most popular on the App store but would love to hear your opinion.

    im in the apple ecosystem since 2013 Jan,
    loving my iphones and macbook pro,
    but jerry was right,
    surface pros are laptops in the form of tablet and Ipad is mobile in the form of tablet.
    and to me, even if apple makes it most powerfull device by putting an intel core i7/i9 or xeon processing inside an ipad with the same os,
    whats the use of those power and geek bench scores,
    ipad is nothing but an iphone xR Max, and its only good for Netflix and youtube

    Can the iPad replace my MacBook Pro? The answer to that is easy hell no. I’m a professional artist and music producer and engineer and I have been for a long time. This thing cannot replace a laptop if someone tells you that it can, it’s because they are really in love with Apple and easily impressed.

    I am curious whether the next iPad Pro would have HDR or not? Since I use my 2015 iPad Pro for art creation and as a media player I would “LOVE” to access that tech and wait it out another year or so until I upgrade.
    Thank you!

    I don’t really understand why every UZclipr is comparing the iPad Pro to a computer, Apple NEVER said it can replace your computer, they have always said it is a companion to a computer. It will never replace a computer!

    "I have to take my hand off of the device and swipe up"
    Oh lordy. What a disaster! If you honestly have nothing you don't like about the device, then seriously just say so. That's just so uselessly nit-picky and I don't think anyone is going to take the critique seriously.

    • Eweyhen
      Eweyhen 29 kun oldin

      Brian Tong oh, I definitely did and I have used the device and it’s keyboard. So I understand the context of what you’re saying, but hearing you say it just sounds silly. You saying “I know, first world problems” really sums up how I felt about that comment.

    Remember something it’s a business they’re not going to cannibalize there other products to make this a pro device that would utterly replace the whole line. Also it’s ironic with a slight of hand but they debut this in the same event that day debut the MacBook Air LOL if it’s the laptop replacement they don’t even believe that just thought I would bring that up I think it’s a great device. But know what you use it for this is more of a companion device you handoff Simplest of tasks to and free up your main workhorse devise less windows less clutter etc. more resources toward your task at hand

    Hello from 🇺🇸Harrisburg Pennsylvania 🇺🇸 I also traded in my old I pad pro 12.9 for a new 3rd generation iPad Air Pro 12.9 with 256 GB TO do my drone videos editing on this new IPad Pro 3rd gen 12.9 Using apple 🍎 new card reader unfortunately I can not upload any of my 4k 60fps videos 😰😱😰 The I pad try’s to upload but fails each time leaving a ? Mark on the 4k @60fps video , I can upload 4k @24fps video same with my old I pad pro ,I even bought 2 brand new Micro SD cards from Best Buy and still no luck trying to upload any 4k@60fps videos onto this 3rd Gen I Pad Pro 12.9 any suggestions

    Guy's I launched my own communication business and I want to learn a lot of stuff about design, illustrator but I need a laptop.
    I hesitate between an MacBook pro 2017 ( 1599€) or an iPad pro with keyboard.
    I get already a desk computer ( I use it 65 % of time). What should I get ?
    I'm afraid to be limited with a iPad pro but affinity design could be a good start for my training and specially with the pen.

    I simply think this is a price you pay for the one-way Apple experience simple things and simple changes takes years to get done and in some cases I think they just take advantage drag their heels because people are so in love with their product but at the same time they still keep taking advantage of their customers at every turn they're like stuffy is telephone makers that are out there and so inflexible that it hurts their bottom line and causes a sex with their customers

    he is so right the ipad pro will never replace your computer and it is to expensive, just get a mac or any other computer that actually will do its job right. I used the ipad pro through my college years without using a computer and it was a pain in the butt, because to go back to my notes, read my ebook while i am working a paper, it is super hard to do it and not worth it. I missed using my mouse to navigate and to open and close windows, so trust me on this one if you want it to be a show off them do it but i feel like you Iphone can do what i do which is netflix, email, check some notes, navigate the web, unless you want to get the apple pencil and write your notes there, but even when you do that i think typing is so much better than write on a ipand.

    I definitely not going to say an iPad Pro can replace your computer but between Affinity’s Designer and Codesandbox People like me who do design and front end development work can do more than we even dreamed about 3 years ago. Yes I obviously still use my iMac when I. At work but if I want to do some work on the weekend or away from the office this iPad Pro might fit the bill without carrying my laptop, because right now I carry around both.

    Great video on day to day use and nuisances. Your video editing is also on point.
    I have an Air 2 and in my situation I wouldn't recommend an upgrade. Now if someone has an older ipad 3 or 4 I would consider it, a 2 or original then definitely. My Air 2 is one of lightest and thinnest but when they introduced the New iPad (base) it was actually closer to the Air 1, got a little thicker, still not as bad as the OG 1-4. Despite the speed difference you won't notice much more real life usage unless you actually want a thinner tablet, the software is just similar enough. It's tough to be excited to upgrade when these things last 5 or more years reliably.

    Here is the problem with 99% of the reviews out there on the new iPad Pro. They are all done by those that make videos and not business users. This device for business is incredible! It’s always on function is a dream when you are in meetings. Handwriting is near flawless and it integrates well Office 365 and Google. Video Conferencing is flawless and always works. I could care less about cutting videos or drawing. As a business device, this can be a near laptop replacement.

    Could not agree more about the starting price. With the restrictions that Apple puts on iPad and factoring in the cost, this is nothing more than a media consumption device. I would love to have one but just can’t justify until the limitations/handcuffs are removed

    Your comments and thoughts are neutral, and I like them. There are lots of ppl arguing about the issue which the iPad Pro is replaceable to a laptop or not. It really depends as you said. I’m a college student, and I’m using my older pro for taking notes in chemistry classes, which is always awesome. But I cannot use the pro to do my assignments because the browser doesn’t support flash. This is the biggest disappointment of mine. If apple can provide that, I definitely will buy that pro, but that’s not. I know the difference between tablet and laptop. The pro is just only the tablet and of course it cannot replace the laptop because of the system, mobile OS and Mac OS. However, I kinda like the surface pro because of the OS. If you can do the comparison between iPad Pro and surface pro, I would like to see it.

    1. add full mac osx, mouse, trackpad support, usbc storage support ,already.
    2. add an extra usbc thunderbolt 3 port.
    3. lower the price ($599 and $799 with 256gb) and add an fast sd card slot.
    4. give loyal apple fans storage upgrade prices, that are not higher than retail, let alone wholesale.
    5. add back the headphone jack x 2, one with optical out.
    6. add qualcomms aptxhd, and sony LDAC superior bluetooth codecs for the best wireless audio.
    7. add touch id to the power button for a second bio unlock choice.
    8. 2 year warranty included.
    Than I will preorder mine.

Anyways at a minimum it should have a proper file management system and connect external hard drives....
