Satechi’s latest product is a folding stand with ports for the iPad Pro. You can buy it for US$99.99 and Andrew received one to review.
We’ve had lots of talk recently about the blurring of the lines between tablet and laptop by Apple, and rumors of a 16-inch Pad Pro Max. Over at Wired, Craig Grannell argues that this would confuse the product line and provide little value for users. I’m inclined to agree.
The 16in crowd nonetheless bangs on that bigger is always better and appears to divide into two distinct camps. The first includes designers and artists who – perfectly reasonably – love bigger canvases they can directly interact with. But on talking to such people, you quickly realise their dream isn’t a mere 16in, but something closer to an A3 iPad Pro (as in, a 20in model) – or bigger. They’re driven by the idea of a Wacom Cintiq that would have the elegance and simplicity of, well, an iPad. But expand the iPad’s dimensions by too much and it ceases to be portable, meaning you cannot use it to be creative anywhere you please. It stops being a consumption device, thereby eroding its versatility. And it becomes colossally expensive, making the device far less viable. In short, it would no longer be an iPad in any meaningful sense, being too niche to be broadly useful – to the point hardly anyone would buy one.

Apple is working on a new iPad Pro with wireless charging and a redesigned Pad mini to be released in 2022 and later in 2021 respectively.

On Thursday Satechi revealed a new aluminum stand for iPad Pro, and it has built-in ports for accessories like SD cards and others.
We have a deal on the Hampshire iPad Pro (11″) and iPad Air (10.9″) sleeve. This sleeve is made from Merino Wool felt and leather, and it features a pocket and a loop for your Apple Pencil, too. It’s also designed to hold the Magic Keyboard with your iPad, and the front flap closes with a magnetic clasp. It’s $79.99 through our deal.
The new M1 iPad Pro is available to buy in-store and online – the 11-inch model starts at US$799, the 12.9-inch model starts at US$1,099.
Photographer Austin Mann recently published a review of the M1 iPad Pro, specifically in how it can be used in photography.
As any photographer knows, one of the most time-consuming parts of the photo creation process is culling through thousands of images, making selects, and editing the images. Thanks to the M1 chip, faster internal storage, and a few other improvements, the new iPad Pro with M1 is the fastest image sorting tool I’ve ever used.
The latest iPad Pro with an M1 is available to order, with the 11-inch model starting at US$799 and the 12.9-inch model starting at US$1,099.
