Apple said the iPad sold well during the holiday season. The company reported a revenue increase of $ 2.4 billion compared to the same period last year – the first year-on-year growth in iPad sales since 2014. Apple also said that about half of its customers -purchased a new iPad for the tablets.
With so many new iPads out in the country, I decided to go back to one of my favorite topics: Can an iPad replace your computer?
I know, I’ve mentioned the iPad as a spork. He tries to do two jobs – be as mobile as a phone and as powerful as a computer – and in doing so, he compromises. But I understand that it’s so much more flexibility than the compromises. Confirmation? Recently, I found myself reaching for my iPad far more often than my MacBook. Here’s why:
• The iPad is faster. It takes much less time to build and load apps than my Intel-powered MacBook Pro. When I receive a phone call, I can charge the iPad and immediately start taking notes with the keyboard or the Apple Pencil. And there is no spinning Beach Ball Doom when there are too many browser tabs open.
• The iPad is more flexible. If I want to read a Kindle or binge book on a Netflix show, I can easily split the keyboard and curl up with the device on the cup.
