  13. Interesting point… "It's like the iPad Pro can do everything, but Apple won't let it." I had always wondered why Apple hasn't created something to make the phone more versatile using something similar to the Samsung DeX, where it turns your phone into a computer. Finally came to the conclusion, they don't want it to be. To keep the ecosystem running, Apple wants the different devices, where if you need a computer, you buy the iMac or MacBook, a phone, you get an iPhone, or a tablet, the iPad. I think your point is absolutely correct, they "won't let it," because it isn't in there best interest to do so. If it is as powerful as you say, it'd wipe out the MacBook Air and low end/spec. MacBook Pro. Why would they do that?

  19. It’s a computer. An iPhone is a computer. A desktop is a computer. A laptop is a computer. And an iPad is most certainly a conputer. Stop saying “tHiS iSnT a cOmPuTeR” A smaller form factor doesn’t make it cease to be a computer. Not to mention that “what’s a computer” ad was pretentious and cringeworthy, and was in no way cool.

  20. Give me an iPad Mini any day, that’s a tablet that’s actually usable. There’s nothing more ridiculous than 2 handing an 11” tablet like it’s a big phone – let alone the 13” tray.
