The iPad’s Identity Crisis

My computer needs are different from pretty much all of my coworkers at Gizmodo. I’m not a gamer, I’m not looking to build my own PC. I don’t even need to use it to word process all that much – I’m a social editor, only occasionally moonlighting as a blogger. So when the 2012 MacBook Pro I had died on me two years ago, just as I got my first full-time job as social editor, I wasn’t going to shell out more than £1,200 for a Netflix-and-iMessage machine. I considered Chromebooks, and there are a lot of Windows machines in the $500-600 range that could pack a punch for the functionality I needed. But being so fully enmeshed in the Apple ecosystem, switching over felt like paying a moderate price to be inconvenienced. After nearly two months using the £350 10.2 inch iPad, I’ve realised I’m essentially damning myself to the same fate all over again. Read More >>

For years now, Apple has been pushing the iPad as a laptop replacement; with the arrival of iPadOS, it might just have a serious shot at getting you to ditch your computer for good (or at least leaving it behind on trips). To test the current state of play, we put an iPad Pro up against a MacBook Pro in five key computing workflows. Read More >>

iPads are Normally Too Expensive, So Take Advantage of the Deals While You Can

Apple products are notoriously expensive, overpriced even, and anyone who knows anything knows you're paying for the brand name not the devices themselves. That's not to say Apple devices are bad, just not normally worth the money. Especially iPads, because tablets aren't nearly as useful as their prices suggests. So when there's a chance to get money off, you should pay attention. Read More >>

Photoshop for iPad Is Terrible. Here’s What Needs to Happen to Make It Great

A year ago, Adobe revealed a potential game changer for the iPad that could help turn the tablet into a legitimate laptop replacement: the full version of Photoshop was coming to iPadOS. A year later, the mobile version of the long-revered photo editing app is finally here, and it’s a near unusable disappointment. Adobe has promised a steady stream of updates and improvements for the app, but I have my own suggestions for fixing Photoshop on the iPad. Read More >>

All the Best iPadOS Features That You Don’t Get in iOS

The New Cheap iPad is Better Than Ever

If you want to buy a brand new iPad for not much money, the choice is obvious: get the new 10.2-inch, seventh-generation iPad. It’s a great value! Unfortunately, however, Apple is not in the bargain business. Although this iPad is now closer in size to the 11-inch iPad Pro, the significant gulf in the quality of its components is still reflected in the £400+ difference in price. The new cheap iPad is still, by all accounts, cheap and, by many measures, better than the last cheap iPad. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Read More >>
