Apple says that an iPad Pro can be a computer for many users, so Mr. Matyszczyk decided to test that.
How does he do it? Ming-Chi Kuo (TF International Securities) has posted a virtual Christmas list of Apple’s next products. John comments on the list.
Longocase is back on Indiegogo with a new iteration of its Sketchbook case for iPad Pro. I covered the first one and used that first version of the case extensively, and it’s a great case for Apple Pencil artists. The new version on Indiegogo is an update for Apple’s newest iPad Pro models (10.1-inch and 12.9-inch), but it also brings some improvements to the case itself. The idea is to have a case that protects your iPad, has room for your Apple Pencil, but then can fold back out of the way just like a paper sketchbook. it uses wide wire bindings to do this, again, like a sketchbook. Version 2 adds kickstands to the inside panel that work when the case is opened and folded back. It also adds leather to the interior, and features two straps to hold your Apple Pencil in place. Longocase has already hit their modest $2,000 goal with a month left to fundraise. As of this writing, Early Bird pledge levels at $19 will get you a Sketchbook when they ship in August. There are tons of pictures at Indiegogo, and more information on what they’re using the money for. Artists should definitely check it out.

Yes, Apple’s iPad sales are up year over year for the second fiscal quarter. But there’s much more to the story.
The first one shows you how to use two at once, while the second shows how to annotate and markup screenshots.
First introduced in 2012, the iPad mini was Apple’s answer to critics calling for a more affordable iPad. Three generations later and it seems like the company might be giving up on it.
What are the best devices released by Apple in the past few years? That’s a pretty subjective list, so I asked the TMO staff what they thought, and the answers were pretty interesting.
Apple may unveil an 11-inch iPad Pro at Worldwide Developer Conference this spring, and ditch Touch ID in favor of Face ID.
John used to always have his 12.9-inch iPad Pro in his lap while watching TV, but no more. His iPhone X has replaced it.
In an iPad Diaries entry, Federico Viticci describes how he uses Type to Siri on his iPad Pro as a sort of “smart command line.” Type to Siri is a feature introduced in iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra. Although billed as an accessibility feature, it lets you type to Siri instead of talking. This can be helpful if you’re in public and you feel awkward talking to your iPhone. On iPad and Mac, it might even be more efficient to use Siri this way, since these devices have keyboards. Since you’re typing rather than talking, it could even be a bit better since there is little room for Siri to misunderstand you. To make it faster to use, Federico created specific text shortcuts for commonly used commands.
Bryan Chaffin and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to look at what may be in store for the MacBook Pro in 2018, plus they talk about Apple’s target audience for the iPad Pro and the tablet’s place in the educational market.
Check out Jeff’s picks for Apple’s top hardware announcements for 2017.
Apple has a new spot called iPad Pro – Markup. It shows the same young woman featured in the What’s a Computer? spot. In this commercial, she’s sitting around with her iPad Pro talking to a friend with FaceTime. She snags a screenshot, marks up the screenshot, and then sends it to the friend in iMessage while continuing the conversation. It’s all fluid, natural, and easy. It ends with the tagline, “A new way to markup instantly.” On the one hand, I’m not sure how many kids can afford an iPad Pro. On the other, I think this delivery speaks perfectly to young people, and that’s entirely the target market.

Dr. Mac got an interesting email last week with “Houston Astros’ Carlos Correa technology use” on its subject line. Doc’s not a huge sports fan, so it nearly got deleted without reading… but, he is a nerd, so he decided to take a peek…and found it fascinating.
If you have an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and want to quickly jot a note you don’t need to unlock your tablet first.
This is almost the Cadillac of iPad Pro covers, but it has one tiny flaw that the designers should consider for the next generation of the case.
Jeff Butts looks long and hard at this iPad Pro case to see if it’s worth a second look, and likes what he sees.
