The first rule of the iPad Pro is: don’t let anyone — especially a child — borrow it along with the Apple Pencil. You won’t get them back.
In Saturday’s Seattle Times, I review Apple’s new pro laptop: Apple Pencil Works Magic with iPad Pro.
I’ve only had it for a little more than a week (and just a few days at the time I wrote the review), so I think there will be more to say over time. I’m working on a piece for Macworld about how the iPad Pro performs for photographers, and I’m also wondering how it fits into my life.
For example, it’s definitely capable of replacing a laptop for many people. Although Apple’s Smart Keyboard felt odd at first, I quickly got used to it and started enjoying the feel. But for what I do most days, a MacBook Pro is best for me. So, is the Pro too big to carry for the things I use it for? It will be interesting to find out.
But the Pencil, man, is really great.
