10 essential iPad features you need to start using

Mon, 04/29/2019 - 07:00

The iPad isn’t really the laptop replacement Apple wants us to think it is, but anyone who outright dismisses it as a productivity device shouldn’t be taken too seriously, either. The iPad can feel magical when you have the knowledge of the right tricks at hand. Once you’ve mastered them, works sometimes feels fun. It may not be a MacBook, but you’d be wrong to dismiss it as giant iPhone.

Here’s a little introduction to the wizardry Apple conceals beneath the familiar facade of iOS.
