Опубликовано: 5 нояб. 2018 г. 2 107 813 просмотров

Apple’s new iPad Pro is a beast of a tablet, and Nilay Patel reviews it -- everything from its new design and screen to plugging in several devices to the new USB-C port. Dami Lee and William Joel, professional creatives at The Verge, also give their insight into the new iPad and Apple Pencil.

  • EposVox
    EposVox 6 месяцев назад (изменено) "I don't want to adapt to my computer, I want my computer to adapt to me." THIS IS THE BEST LINE IN ANY REVIEW. Brutal review here. I love it. These are the issues that have always kept me from getting one.

  • Michael Patrick
    Michael Patrick 6 месяцев назад Worst review- showed absolutely NO reality about the machine, showed nothing of what it does, showed NONE of the platform evolution and software evolution. This is the worst review of all time.
  • Talhah Bhuiyan
    Talhah Bhuiyan 6 месяцев назад @Michael Patrick Lol he showed the potential of the iPad with the people who are going to buy it. There's a specific audience for it. He talked about everything necessary in this review.

  • EposVox
    EposVox 6 месяцев назад Yeah it definitely showed some of the evolution. Half the video was quite direct and specific comparisons between this one and the previous one. Not every video needs to (or should) have a full product line history - that would just be a lot of wasted video time, kill retention of viewers, etc. much better suited to its own video.
  • Polarised Society
    Polarised Society 6 месяцев назад I am beyond pissed that this doesn't support external hard drives, are you kidding me? Apple needs to stop messing around. This is the only thing stopping me from buying one right now.
  • EposVox
    EposVox 6 месяцев назад Part of me questions if it's a filesystem support thing - but if it truly doesn't support it at all, that just completely nerfs any of its potential. I, too, would like to buy one - though $2200 for a full-spec one is a bit much..

  • K BH
    K BH 6 месяцев назад That “I want my computer to adapt to me” is precisely what is stopping me from loving Apple the way I used to. Being a modern Apple user means having to put up with Apple shoving the way they want you to use your device down your throat everyday.
  • Stuart Richards
    Stuart Richards 6 месяцев назад EposVox why are people so obsessed with Apple being knocked in reviews on Verge? It’s a bit strange. Especially considering most of their competitors exist in the marketplace because of products pioneered or at least popularised by them.

  • Jason Blalock
    Jason Blalock 6 месяцев назад The funny/sad thing is, I was an early iPad adopter. I had an iPad 2, back when most people couldn't even comprehend why someone would have a tablet. And I loved it, except for all the limitations of iOS. And I was saying, back in 2011, this thing could be a laptop replacement if only Apple would quit treating it like a locked-down accessory. Now, nearly eight years later, the cost of iPads has tripled but Apple is STILL treating them like locked-down accessories. Personally, I think Apple's scared of displacing their laptop lines. Why else would they release a tablet that's more powerful than a lot of laptops, but deliberately hobble its usability?

  • J G
    J G 6 месяцев назад Damon Landry I think they sound the same to be honest. The pencil feels “plasticy” compared to the old one and I swear the screen refresh rate is ever so slightly slower. But other than that, I’m happy with it. WBU?
  • EposVox
    EposVox 6 месяцев назад @Stuart Richards This is my first one, so I'm not sure. I don't usually watch reviews of Apple products, but I was particularly interested in the iPad Pro. Most of the review is not "knocking" the iPad at all, but pointing out that the software limits the experience with the overall brilliant hardware is VERY important.
  • EposVox
    EposVox 6 месяцев назад @Rick Grayson No review is EVER the "truth for everyone." That's why context and use-cases are established in it, and he even pulled in other people to get their take.

  • Andre Utrecht
    Andre Utrecht 5 месяцев назад In fact you always adapt to the computer you are using, you are just used to adapt to a windows machine. The iPad is not what you adapted to.
  • MiniMoon
    MiniMoon 5 месяцев назад @Andre Utrecht yes, but for a newly released device that puts itself on the same level as conventional laptops, having it forced you to adapt to its less convenient usability from a more complex devices that we'd been adapting to is a downgrade
  • LightningstrikerXVIII
    LightningstrikerXVIII 4 месяца назад I think apple should start developing a system that could use the iPad Pro to its full potential. Like as mouse and trackpad support. They should come up with something revolutionary like the surface dial of the iPhone X except on iPad pro

  • Edwin Black
    Edwin Black Неделю назад lol how old are you? You have already adapted to your computer every time you use excel, a mouse, a keypad, a USB storage device you have adapted. the mobility you get from using an iPad you can't get from a lap top. for example with the advent of digital consoles sound are able to make adjustment easily with out going back to the board. Now you can question cost that might make sense

  • Theodore Yamada-Dessert
    Theodore Yamada-Dessert 6 месяцев назад Simple...Do you draw? - Get an iPad Pro. You don’t draw? - Get a laptop
  • Paul M
    Paul M 6 месяцев назад (изменено) Drawing was the only reason I bought the first gen iPad Pro. Oh and reading comics and magazines. Which it is great for and probably a lot better now that it is lighter.
  • Theodore Yamada-Dessert
    Theodore Yamada-Dessert 6 месяцев назад @Paul M Right?! I currently own a Gen 1 iPad Pro, with an apple pencil. I went into the store yesterday and compared it to the new models, and now I actually think the smaller one is the better buy. if you ever need to take a photo of something, the big ipad is too big to hold in one hand and take a photo. Also, the smaller one was so light, it was a game changer. IT was SO comfortable to hold in my hand and draw.
  • Theodore Yamada-Dessert
    Theodore Yamada-Dessert 6 месяцев назад @Paul M Plus I've spent $500 on apple pencils because i would break them, lose them, ect. I think the best feature is the new apple pencil!
  • Paul M
    Paul M 6 месяцев назад Theodore Yamada-Dessert ouch I never broke mine but I can see how it might happens since it rolls so easily on sloped surfaces
  • D V
    D V 6 месяцев назад Theodore Yamada-Dessert I’m gonna buy this new iPad Prod cuz I like drawing dicks...I’ve never drawn one with an Apple Pencil so I’m quite hyped!
  • Theodore Yamada-Dessert
    Theodore Yamada-Dessert 6 месяцев назад D V you can draw extremely detailed penises down to the last vein with the Apple Pencil. Total beast of a product.
  • Victor Almanzar
    Victor Almanzar 6 месяцев назад It's much more complex than that, Apple is pushing the ipad pro as some high end device that can suffice as a productivity machine, but the tools/apps aren't as sophisticated as the Mac counterparts. And they won't ever be unless Apple does some drastic changes to the operating system.

  • kemicalromanc15
    kemicalromanc15 4 месяца назад That's what I say. Bc I'm an illustrator and you can basically get rid of all the sketch books and pencils and markers and I don't even NEED to use my Cintiq....Now I can be on-the-go and sketch whenever and wherever I want. if you don't draw I don't really see the point in purchases something like this honestly.
  • 666 Satan
    666 Satan 4 месяца назад But kemic i have a question cuz i draw alot and i love it and im about to buy an ipad pro and i never used any Technology to draw so i realy dont know how it feels like, is it realy worth it ? Will i quit the paper and the good old pen and pencil ? 😂
  • kemicalromanc15
    kemicalromanc15 3 месяца назад (изменено) @666 Satan If you have never drawn digitally it will be a learning curve. How I have to draw on paper and how I draw digitally are to totally different processes. It's also based on your preferences. Personally, I never really liked traditional means even though I started out only using traditionally mediums. Will it eliminate paper and good old pen/pencil? Probably not but that's all preference again...but for me it has eliminate having to carry around 3 sketchbooks and markers, pencil, pens, erasers and everything else all the time and have sped up my process.

  • Karla Jordan
    Karla Jordan 3 недели назад (изменено) This. I use my iPad for studying, drawing, games, cross stitch (no kidding, it's excellent for marking complete stitches on a huge pattern and the lack of the highlighter cap clicking on and off every few seconds saves my husband's sanity). I can't use a laptop for that. You don't get an iPad to replace a laptop, but the fact that it CAN replace a laptop for most people is a bonus.

    Sydney Cottrell Неделю назад Wow, thanks for making it easy, I don't have time for this video. I guess I'm getting an IPad pro
  • Amin Bajrektarevic
    Amin Bajrektarevic 6 месяцев назад It's a shame about the software. I have a 2017 12.9 pro and I never came close to the limits of the A10x processor. This A12x is great and all but just a gimmick at this point as there isn't one app to take advantage of that properly. Apple really needs to redesign iOS from ground up to make this thing useful, or just make a modified macOS version.
  • Michel Lamana
    Michel Lamana 6 месяцев назад That’s true, iOS Isn’t enough to iPad Pro, a huge power being capped
  • Drone Drop
    Drone Drop 6 месяцев назад If a12 is utilised the devices will last not more than 6 months
  • Amin Bajrektarevic
    Amin Bajrektarevic 6 месяцев назад @Drone Drop I don't agree, the OS will fly on this chip no matter what, and so will all the basic tasks. To utilize the A12x you need proper software, but then you have the same scenario as with any other laptop where you get the performance that you pay for. It's never going to do the same tasks any worse than now. When you add new functionally that this chip can't handle, it's time for a new device, as with every other. We shouldn't remove functionality so the first gen ipad can run everything smooth, what would be the point of new hardware?
  • Chris Earl
    Chris Earl 6 месяцев назад The problem is that iPad Pro is being held back as a laptop replacement by being treated as a powerful table. The new pencil is the one thing that I look at with envy over m 2017 12.9 model, as I justified my purchase as substitute for a graphics tablets (doesn’t work that well if your other computer isn’t a Mac)

    burningmartyr 6 месяцев назад Well,I guess fortnite will, in the future .But when you are about to pay $2200 for a tablet,you could have as well used that much amount of money to buy a gaming rig
  • Suprxme Storm
    Suprxme Storm 6 месяцев назад Amin Bajrektarevic By 2020 apple is gonna be making there own arm cpus. This means that’s Mac OS ( based on the x86 architecture) is gonna be a legacy software. There gonna integrate iOS and Mac OS and this iPad and the iPad coming after this are gonna support it. That’s why the speed doesn’t matter right now but later apple is gonna take advantage of it.

  • hicamajig
    hicamajig 6 месяцев назад This video is a perfect summary of the iPad Pro. In its current state it is a professional device for professionals and creatives who are using it for a specific purpose and are in a setting where the cost for that purpose is worth it. I think Apples biggest mistake is trying to half market it as a laptop/desktop replacement because while sure certain types of workflow can take advantage of this, the average user may see this and get frustrated when they try to use it as their one and only device (unless it is just an overpriced netflix/youtube/email box). This is of course unless we get an iOS 13/14 that swoops in and fixes the gripes. The two most common ones I hear/see are lack of file system support (including external usb) for management of large files and as stated in the video directly opening them in apps like the new Photoshop CC, and lack of mouse for things like excel. Essentially every other OS supports both of these things so it is doable, we just need to make it clear in their mind that it is what we want.

    Der Eskapist 6 месяцев назад That's why I switches to the Surface go. Unlocked from the S mode you literally have a fast small laptop that can do anything a laptop can do, not the fastest but it gets the job done. You have no limitations. On the other hand, iOS is a mobile software and is limited af. And I don't think that Apple will implement Mac OSX on its iPads any time soon
