On The 2018 iPad Pro

Many reviews are out, but I think this twitter thread by Matthew Panzarino hit the nail right on the head;

… it’s great - almost there - but simple things still require gymnastics to pull off.

You’ll be trundling along and then someone will send you a zip file or a download link and all of the sudden you’re caught in an outward spiral of apps, services and extensions trying to just get the files onto your machine for you to use and then into your project.

It’s going to further into becoming a laptop. So I’m gonna hold off upgrading my iPad and keep on using this 2015 MacBook Pro and the old Mac Mini (I don’t remember which year, it’s too old). I might upgrade the Mini if I have to, but I kinda don’t want to. The new Mini is pricey.

Once Xcode is available on iPad Pro, many of those issues above should be gone. By then, it should have a proper solution for looking up docs and pulling codes out of git repos. Working with fonts, images, icons, and other assets. It will then be the perfect iPad Pro for me.
