Matt has a good video questioning the excitement around the iPad now. I’ve moved to Final Cut Pro from LumaFusion recently so my iPad usage has dropped in the last 3 months. If Final Cut and all the assets were available on iPad then I’d be using my iPad still instead of macOS.

I still prefer my iPad Pro for reading/writing planning but I don’t use it for code anymore either.

As Daryl Baxter says, if you’re a writer/researcher/student then the iPad is perfect. If you’re doing other things maybe it’s not the best option. It certainly hasn’t lived up to the hopes I had for iPadOS 15.

Maybe iPadOS 16 will be better?

    I never could use mine for code, but I love it for almost everything else. Now that my primary role is no longer writing code I think it’s even better for me as I really could do my entire day job on it if I wanted to.

    I do wonder what future versions of iOS will bring but, at least for my edge case, I don’t know how much more I want it to do either. At least for now it is kinda nice being able to separate some tasks.

      Yeah, leaving my Mac for code and writing on my iPad feels like a decent way to use the devices. I’ll watch what they do in the future, but I’m happy with where I’m at for now.
