🥇 Regular Picks

Federico Regular "The new iPad Pros come with a new (to the platform) display technology" 1
Stephen Regular "Apple announces updates for Final Cut Pro and/or Logic for the iPad" 1
  • Was originally just "pro apps" but Federico wanted some clarification.
Myke Regular "The iPad Pro features a camera on the horizontal bezel" 1
Federico Regular "Apple unveils a new Apple Pencil" 1
Stephen Regular "The new iPad Air comes in the current iPad Pro sizes: 11-inch and 12.9-inch" 1
  • Apple changed to just calling it 13", but it's actually exactly the same, so Stephen gets the point.
Myke Regular "The iPad Pro has a higher starting price for both models" 1
  • The old models started at $799 and $1099.
  • New prices: $999 and $1299, so definitely yes. (To be fair, you also get more storage for that price.)

⚠️ Risky Picks

Federico Risky "The new iPad Pros can run a version of macOS when needed" -1
  • Ungraded: "Native, virtualized, or Mac Virtual Display?"
Stephen Risky "We get new Macs" -1
  • Ungraded: probably a new Mac mini
Myke Risky "The iPad Pro gets MagSafe charging, but it's not what you think…" -1
  • "Not the MagSafe an iPhone has."
  • In other words, an iPhone MagSafe charger will not charge an iPad Pro, but it will have a new charging method called MagSafe, likely the MacBook's MagSafe or very similar.

🏆 Scores
