    iPad OS is SO good but i'm starting to doubt this tablet can ever actually replace a laptop (and I don't even think Apple wants it to)

      Yes but people will keep trying to use it as a computer replacement and more Apple denies this more customers will be unsatisfied by their iPads...

      Whats missing? Could it be, for starters, a SPLIT KEYBOARD? All androids can have it, native or by installing third party keyboard (plenty great thumbkeyboards if you bought some odd unknown brand without it builtin). Windows10 has it in their own onscreen keyboard by default, regardless of screensize on the touchscreen. A surface is 12,3 inch screen and its impossible to type without splitting the keyboard. Apple makes a 12,9 inch tablet and doesnt support THAT single feature? How are people supposed to type on it :D :D :D

      Oh yes, ios 13 has a fix. A shrunkdown keyboard only on one side of the screen, to utilize 1 THUMB only to type, for a species born mostly with 2 thumbs and a multitasking brain. I start to wonder what the typical mac user looks like, and the lack of standard human brain (no multitasking) ..... :) :) :)

      Dave Lee I handed my old laptop to my wife to use it, however she stick to her 5.5” smartphone for all her digital needs. My sister uses her small tablet a lot instead of her laptop, which she uses when she edits a heavy Word documents for her work and studies. Those are the customer base who will use the iPad (not only the Pro) as a main compute, not us digital pros.

      iPad is a glorified Android. Only Windows can provide the versatility of Windows.

    Great points. Too much lean towards laptop functionality risks cannibalizing MacBook sales.

              I agree with you. Study of the business company and I need the word, excel and full power point. It is a pity that powerful hardware and there are no applications so powerful.

                    Purchased 11” iPad Pro 2 days ago and it was too small. Returned for the 12.9” yesterday and its perfect. I previously had the iPad Pro 9.7”. I am very impressed with the iPad OS beta. For many people this is absolutely enough. If you need more just purchase a laptop or desktop.

                            I’m about to replace my iphone7 with android and getting a new ipad. How bad is that combination?

                            Hi Dave, I hope you can read my comment. You produce great content, and you are a really good tech reviewer. My only commentary is that when it comes to Apple products, you always seem to have a negative narrative. For example in iPadOS, instead of producing a review of the product, what you have is content of what’s missing from it. And the same tone is prevalent in almost all of your Apple reviews whilst praising products from other companies.

                            I can say for one that I enjoy Apple products specially their software for their stability and ease of use. (As Steve Jobs said, they are a software company that produces great boxes for their software.) And the post sale support of Apple in many countries including developing countries is above and beyond other companies. Won’t you agree?

                            I’m not all praises for Apple as well, but we can give positive optimism towards their product won’t you agree? Up until now, I’m using my iPhone 6 which still has the latest software support from Apple and has no problem except for a recent battery replacement.

                            The first time I used an Apple product which was a white Macbook, I was blown away by how good it was compared to my Dell XPS notebook. Superb software and hardware build quality as well. And the price? It is close to one another at around $900 (i think), because of Apple’s education discount back then.

                                Exactly. I don’t even care that they have done this. My one problem I’m with it is that iOS has no applications. APPLE JUST LET THE IPAD PRO SUPPORT IMAC APPLICATIONS SO WE CAN USE IT LIKE AN ACTUAL PC

                                    Why would apple make the ipad a laptop experience if they have a laptop line? So their users dont see why buy their laptops anymore?

                                              but for me, it is more than enough. I want a tablet that can be a laptop if I need it to be. not the other way around.

                                                There are lots of people who want the iPads to become a computer replacement, even though they don’t want them to be mediocre as tablets. The problem with iPadOS is that it is mediocre as a computer. The solution could be an OS that looks like iPadOS but has nothing less than macOS, not an OS that has less things than a computer...

                                                      I agree with you that the iPad pro will be the best tablet a tablet can be, i hope it doesn’t lose any of its advantages in trying to become a laptop.

                                                                                              Exactly right. I have a coffee table that can almost replace my kitchen table, but I think it still needs a few more enhancements before it can take over the kitchen. In all seriousness what would be cool would be a touch screen MacBook that can dual boot into Mac OS or IpadOS or both simultaneously in separate windows with the capability to copy and paste across windows....oh yeah and the screen needs to rotate 180 (or 360) to allow it to fold back on itself so it can be used as a pure IPad or touchscreen MacBook....
