This book about the iPad Pro was written in 2015 and much of it is now out of date.
It is not a handbook, but it is a buyer’s guide, and an introduction into what is great about this revolutionary iPad and its remarkable side-kick, the Apple Pencil. It is a personal view from somebody who cannot draw or paint and yet thinks the Pencil is one of the best things Apple ever created. It discusses how the iPad Pro is finally breaking into meeting rooms and lecture halls where laptops have been a mere embarrassment or distraction.
A whole chapter asks whether this iPad can finally replace your laptop. The hardware and software of the iPad Pro get a quick and personal, but carefully researched overview.
This is a light, and yet informative read for those who are thinking of buying an iPad Pro or who have just bought one.
