  • The iPad Debate Rages On
  • iPads Don't Replace Laptops
  • iOS Doesn't Replace macOS

We kick off today's email by discussing the ongoing iPad versus laptop debate. Does an iPad Pro replace a laptop? We look at the discussion from the perspective of what the iPad is designed to do in relation to PCs (laptops and desktops). The discussion then moves beyond form factors to compare iOS to macOS and assess the pros and cons found with each platform. We then discuss Apple's motivation behind iOS 11 refinements for iPad and accessories like the Smart Keyboard. The email concludes with how iOS and macOS will address computing workflows in the future.
