    Goddamnit… please stop saying “Hey, Siri” in your videos… or, have your editor cut the audio frequencies between 3kHz and 6kHz when you say that or “Alexa”. (I don’t know about “Hey, Google” as I haven’t tested that yet…) But, I was watching the video on my television and my own iPad Pro’s Siri went off several times. 😐

    Given the size of your platform, it would be interesting for you to cover the speed and functionality of the thunderbolt port further. Most sites and YouTubers are finding insanely slow read/write speeds when using thunderbolt drives compared to USB-C ones. It is surely an OS thing and not hardware, and needs looking at so Apple fix it in future iPadOS updates.

    I traded in my iPad Pro 2020 a few days ago and I am now the proud new owner of a Samsung Tab S7 plus. This is an extraordinary machine with full desktop mode and full external display support. This is a tablet but also a laptop replacement. One of the biggest problems the iPad Pro has is the horde of embargoed Apple YouTube reviewers who refuse to acknowledge that the competition is taking over. The Apple iPad Pro is now a deeply flawed device in terms of value and usability compared to other devices at there. You are a kidding yourselves if you think this device has any future in its current form. The entire iPad range only amounts to 9-10% of Apple’s global revenues while the Mac makes up 10% and the iPhone accounts for over 50% of revenues. The whole argument of the iPad cannibalising Mac sales is completely redundant when you consider how insignificant Mac computers are in the Apple portfolio. Apple YouTube reviewers are the most insincere group of people on the Internet. How many of you are brave enough to challenge just how disappointing the iPad Pro has become?

    Never mind the far less useful file management system, ios15 is going to make the ipad Pro nearly worthless. With that fisaco, there is now barely any reason to get it over the ipad air or even budget ipad family. The prospects of the m1 ipad being a suitable laptop replacement has diminished for a long while.

    #Apple #Ipadpro blunder- if mere file management and external hard drive support system issues still stands unresolved-
    Apple lost ESPECIALLY the elite -lurking on the edge- windows/Intel/AMD users (mostly the 2in1 machine user candidates) from finally switching to Apple.
    Yes, Apple came up with their unbeatable M1 chip and after a long while Apple managed to raise ground-breaking serious doubts on Intel /AMD chip's capability in the mind of its loyal users. STILL #Macbook / #Ipad were not making that final impact to put the last nail in the coffin simply due to their lack of 2in1 capability (macbook) and ease of day to day office work performance (ipad) UNTIL they came up with the #IpadProM1. It was like a knight in the shining armor that slayed all hopes of Intel/AMD to retain their loyalists and elite #2in1 machine users.
    BUT shockingly Apple lost its once in a decade opportunity and all seems to be going down the drain due to small blunder they seem to have made in their latest IpadproM1 line up which was even left unattended this #WWDC21. Even if Apple didn't want to get Pro apps (like final cut pro etc.) to be working on their ipad pro line up still they should have had atleast resolved the file management and external hard drive issues COZ all white collared office goers and elite windows/AMD/2in1 machine users would have still bought Apple's ipad pro 12.9 M1 even without the Pro apps. Apple could have simply retained these pro Apps for serious Mac users and everything would have still made sense.
    Now very soon Intel/Amd/elite 2in1 machine/windows users will sadly reject the idea of switching to ipad pro / macbook air Coz at such steep price especially after including pencil n keyboard- purchase is not justified by any means. Well proven 2in1s like Xps 13, spectre 360, Surface pro/X and others are available at much lesser price and they will very soon catch up / copy the performance of M1.
    Apple had once in a decade opportunity to get those elite lurking on the edge-windows /Intel/AMD/windows users /loyalists to switch to the Apple's eco system but hey seem to have lost it now.

      Honestly, PC "elites" are mostly builders, and builders care about performance. But they also care about flexibility & how much real life performance the parts will do. PC = You can use it for Work, Server, Game, Etc Not to mention the ability to just buy and stick a new part when the old one is broken. And the new part will have new warranty period too. So Unless Apple lets M1 be used for other than IOS. No, PC users won't switch ecosystem. At the very least, not completely. And savvy PC peoples will soon enough moan about how thermal bottlenecked a mac is. In PC world we solve it by adding better cooling, in Mac world though... that's probably gonna be tough to do. Considering the last one needed a special adapter just to add a new ssd or somethin. And knowing Apple, i have no doubt that they'll even change the screw hole to a special type just to F over DIY-ers. I'm not sure there's anyone out there willing to drill a hole onto their Mac case just to add more fans, and not sure Apple will not void their warranty for doing so. Plus, what is the use of a lot of processing power if you can't even install / use a heavy apps that you need / want to use. That'll be like buying a car just to go to a convenience store 300 feet away, while bike is cheaper & healthier. And builders/gamers buy thousands dollars worth PC with an idea that little or much we can upgrade some stuffs along the way when we need to. It's the mentality behind PC builders & gamers or PC video editors / graphic renderers. Lack of ram? buy then add more ram, it'll be done within 2 minutes. Service charge just for changing parts can go to hell. Lack of CPU power ? replace with better one. Lack of GPU power ? replace Lack of storage ? Add up to a lot easily, just slide in if one is using hotswap bay. Heck, we can overclock our parts for more performance for free. Even in laptop world we're allowed to change and/or add RAM & SSD with a better one with fairly easy difficulty. Both for looking for the parts needed, buying it, and adding / swapping it. Simpler example is this : GPU & PS5 is in shortage right now, how many do you think switched to Apple. :\

Or is the iPad so powerful now that app developers will just make their Mac os applications work on the iPad pro?
