Three Weeks with the 10.5” iPad Pro

July 5, 2017

I bought the 10.5” iPad Pro the day it was announced and received it the following Monday. My old Gen 3 iPad didn’t support multitasking, Touch ID, iOS 10, or True Tone. Basically nothing that makes an iPad awesome for work. It was getting pretty slow and desperately needed an upgrade. I’m super happy with the new iPad Pro.

Learning to Draw, Day 16: In Progress

June 16, 2017
