Please, read this brilliant piece by Ben Thompson. I couldn’t agree more with him. In the last year, I’ve been waiting for iPad versions of apps that I really like on the iPhone: Ecoute, TweetBot just to name a few. There are long in coming and I don’t see when they will land on the bigger screen device. This is sad because the bigger screen would enable different interaction models and user experiences. Even Apple is doing badly with their Music.app on the iPad. This is one of their worst work, really. Sure there are great apps like Flipboard, Reeder or Apple’s Remote. But is that enough to make the iPad such a “must have” device? With the iPhone 6 Plus, the problem is even worst.
Today, while watching the Apple event “It’s Been Way Too Long”, I’ll be looking for one thing: what will Apple tell us in order to convince many of us to get the new iPad?
This would be really surprising. Look at the iPad product lines. You can get a 128 GB model of the iPad mini just as you can get 128 GB iPad Air.
On Apple’s earnings call, Tim Cook directly addresses concerns surrounding iPad. Notably, he calls out Office as helping iPad sales somewhat but ‘frankly’ admits that Microsoft should have released Office for iPad sooner…
Hey, Microsoft wanted to make it right… better later but right than sooner and shit I guess…
I think Apple has to augment iOS in order to bring it closer to the desktop feature set and hope to push the iPad higher. But I also think that, mobile phones are the real takers here and that the tablet won’t be as large as the smartphone industry is.
I think this is fair for Samsung to hit Apple right where they are most vulnerable. The multitasking version of the ad is certainly effective.
Thirty years ago Macintosh promised to put technology in the hands of the people. To celebrate Mac’s birthday, this film was shot around the world in one day, entirely on iPhone. Here’s to the next thirty.
If this video about the Mac? Or is it about the iPhone or even the iPad? Maybe it is about Apple’s products and technology. I don’t know. Does this make this ad ambiguous?
Why it’s very difficult to imagine an iPad five or 10 years down the line that looks much different than the ones we have now.
Great article by John Brownlee. I would add that Apple will certainly work to improve things like th weight of the device, better sound speakers and add the Touch ID. The idea here is to make the device kind of disappear to the user while he is using it. The main issue remaining is the “window content”, a.k.a. iOS. It is up to Apple to make it “dissapear” too but still enjoyable and enlighting.
How funny is that…
By renaming the iPad to iPad Air this fall, Apple made sure to make room for the iPad Pro in the product line up.
