Video: Watch the new iPad Pro touchpad in action
Apple announced a new iPad Pro with trackpad support, a much improved MacBook Air and a useful Mac mini upgrade on March 18.
Possibly because the trackpad support is such a big deal, the company has published a bunch of different videos showing this feature in action, all of which you can see here.
Your next computer is not a computer
Perhaps with its eyes on the burgeoning Windows 7 replacement market, Apple’s first video promises you that your next computer isn’t a computer, showing you all the different things you can do with an iPad Pro that you may never have been able to do on a PC.
- LiDAR sensors and AR.
- Amazing display.
- A faster processor than most PCs.
- Brilliant multitasking and graphics.
- Built in Ultrawide scanner.
- AR support.
- A cool keyboard with a trackpad and mad clever cursor.
- LTE, graphics support, Apple Pencil and more.
Here’s the video that shows it all:
How to correctly use a computer
The second video is – well, I found it rather entertaining, actually.
It features clips of an iPad Pro in regular use by a range of different people in a number of real world situations – but does so the soundtrack of an old British “How to correctly use a computer” spoken word audio track.
This juxtaposition does a brilliant job of illustrating just how far computing has gone, and the extent to which Apple’s iPad Pro embraces, replaces and extends what a computer actually is. Watch that video below:
