Shawn Blanc’s iPad Writing Setup


Yup Shawn uses an iPad most of the time too.

Over the past two years, my usage between Mac and iPad has basically flip-flopped. In early 2017, I bought a 9.7-inch iPad Pro, which I promptly upgraded as soon as the 10.5-inch came out. And last fall, when the new 12.9- and 11-inch iPads Pro were released, I upgraded again.

I love my 12.9” and it’s hard to see how I could go to the smaller 11” day to day for work.

One thing I’ve added recently is a LunaDisplay so that I can run my MacBook Air in clamshell mode and access macOS when I need to. I’ll be writing for The Sweet Setup soon on extending your Mac with an iPad and address headless macOS.
