    2017 iPad pro + external storage

    i ran the beta of Ipad OS 13 on my gen 1 12.9 Ipad Pro and connected all my external drives via the USB w/power port and using a power block of between 12W and 29W. My drives are 2 Lacie mobiles of 1T-(one was Thunderbolt 2 but also had a USB port, the other 1T USBa), a WD 4T USBa, and a Sandisk...

    iPad OS

    I installed both public betas on my well used with battery issues gen 1 12.9 Pro. It is what I hoped even with the bugs. There are several things I hadn't even thought of wanting LOL but love using. I wouldn't recommend installing until later unless you have an older or alternative device. I...

    iPad OS

    I have a gen 1 12.9 Ipad Pro with lightning port and though it has a battery that constantly needs charged (main reason I bought the 2018) I charged it, installed the public beta. I just love it—so much of what I have hoped for over the years and likely will mean my late 2015 Macbook Pro will...

    iPad OS

    I agree with you-especially the second paragraph. I have a MacBook Pro 15" but think I can migrate entirely to my 2018 12.9 Pro. I don't code, don't use apps only available for the Mac, and my use of spreadsheets and docs is basic enough to do on a big iPad (and photography processing on the...

    iPad OS

    Thanks so much. I have several hubs on my list but don't know this one. I too have the Brydge (12.9) so am looking for a hub with exactly the ports your hub has.

    iPad OS

    I'm really surprised not to see any thread on IOS13/iPad OS. There are so many things that will make my 201812.9 Pro experience so much better that I just kept hurrahing as it was spelled out (but so fast hard to keep up with). And then as people got hands on and tried different things my smile...

    Suddenly cannot read downloaded files in iBook when offline

    I know this is probably something you've already done but I always tell friends to reboot when any app or device doesn't act as expected or as before. I've seen it "fix" things in my husband's devices when he has some seemingly unlikely issue and I ask if he's rebooted (the answer is almost...

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    Thought I would mention that I did preorder the Brydge keyboard case for my 2018 12.9 Pro. I received it last week and have to say I love it. Because I use the keyboard often and touch type, this works very well for me. It is heavier—probably feels about as weighty as the Logitech Slim Combo...

    Ear phones

    Depending for what and how you use a stylus the Logitech Crayon is an excellent alternative (I have the Pencil 2, had Pencil 1 with gen 12.9). Adonit also makes some excellent accurate styluses-i still carry one to use with my iPhone. I've had a lot of earphones over the years but I've been...

    iPad mini 2019

    Mini update: Found Amazon was able to deliver before last trip so bought from them. I've found it a great companion to my 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 like Twerpoet I use it for notetaking all the time both in Notability app and Notes. I can throw it in a bag for easy carry and know notes or anything...

    sd card reader for ipad

    I have both of the SD dongles, lightning and now a USBc for my 2018 12.9 Pro. Both work really well and depending on your Ipad model may be extremely fast. When I travel I often use a WD wifi/USB external drive—easy to transfer to a computer when I return. I’ve contemplated a USBc hub (if your...

    iPad mini 2019

    My Kindle is years old with a very aging battery and I’ve been contemplating replacing it—a friend has an old Mini 4 for reading primarily so I had looked at refurbed 4s but hated buying a device that old. I use a 12.9 gen 3 Pro all the time (has pretty much replaced my Macbook Pro 15” except...

    Gen 3 12.9 touchscreen problem

    That’s really bizarre—three. I haven’t heard of anyone else having a similar issue so far. Hope it can be resolved. I truly enjoy using the 2018 12.9 Pro and have had no issues at all—LOL—well, none not self inflicted.

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    Back again about cases. My needs/wants may not be the same as many but the right case can mean a better use (or maybe more enjoyable should be the better word) of the Ipad. I’ve had Ipads since the first one just several weeks after it came out so have been thru many cases and covers and know...

    Finally Bit the Bullet - Ordered an iPad Pro!

    I’ve been considering a hub for the Ipad Pro—there are a number out there with different ports. I have a late 2015 Macbook Pro 15” which I use less and less (actually probably 90-95% Pro 12.9 with and without keyboard plus Pencil) but wonder what ones I actually would use—already bought the...

    Finally Bit the Bullet - Ordered an iPad Pro!

    Auto worked for me too—used it with XS Max also. I used an Icloud backup from that morning—but I had cleaned up my prior Ipad Pro deleting apps, unneeded data, etc. Still a lot of apps, data and photos (primarily uploads via a CC dongle—I did buy a new USBc SD reader). Diane

    Christmas probalby not coming early

    Twerppoet, thanks so much for your assessment. Guess for now I’ll stick with what I’m using/doing. I use a Techmatte stand to give me various angles but often type or use Pencil for shorter periods and doesn’t seem worth it to get the stand out adjust it etc. Keep us posted about the rubber...

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    I keep looking at this case and the only thing keeping me from ordering is whether the lowest angle is low enough to type comfortably on the screen. I do use a separate Logitech keyboard some at a desk but often type on the screen in my lap—and use the Pencil a lot also—photo apps for...

    Christmas probalby not coming early

    Twerppoet, now that you have had your Ipad for several days-and also the new keyboard cover, curious if you think the new case might be balanced enough to sit in your lap to type. Also how you feel about the keyboard folding back to hold the Ipad flat—or do you pull the cover off the Ipad to...

    Christmas probalby not coming early

    I’m still hoping that the USBc port will be used for more than now. Have looked at the new hubs available but none really are that useful for me—I already bought the USBc SD dongle, use Air Pods, not sure if I will need/use any of the other ports on the hubs (also have a USBc to lightning cable...

    Christmas probalby not coming early

    No, really nothing new that it does that my gen 1 doesn’t but the speed and smoothness are certainly appreciated since I use it far more than my Macbook Pro 15” (Affinity Photo with a number of layers and Pixelmator are lovely to use now). I think the things that are big changes—for me—are Face...

    is 10.5 pro a good purchase in 2018?

    I’ll second DavidM’s reply—I so prefer Face ID (with so far no issues at all) since I often had issues with fingerprint ID and had to put in my password—and quite a number of times had to completely reset my fingrprint. Had it on my Iphone 6S+ and my first gen 12.9 Ipad pro.

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    I actually liked that ZtoTop case but needed at least one or two more angles—and liked the idea of the loop. i wish someone would make a case with several angles that uses the same technique as the Apple folio with the magnets holding it on the back of the Ipad—like that which allows for quick...

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    I broke down and bought the Apple folio. The Zugu case I would really like won’t be available until January sometime—and because of the redesign due to the Pencil, I want to see how people feel about usage of the case. The folio is not the best one for me—I use the Ipad and type on it too in...

    Christmas probalby not coming early

    You will really like it (12.9 512GB)—I do—I had a preorder from 10/30 with B & H with a delivery hold until 11/27 so just got mine end of last week—and Pencil 2. Feels like a big difference from my early gen 1 with only 128 GB. The reduced footprint is the first thing I noticed-and of course...

    Not understanding iCloud?

    I’m 79 and have used computers for a long time so probably not average (and use Cloud services-i.e.; Dropbox or similar-not necessarily everything to Icloud) but my suggestion to my husband —rather than keep everything in folders in email to reference at some point—printscreen important emails...

    video editor for iPad?

    I watched too—my videos are simple and don’t require this app but I have to admit I was impressed.

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    Zugu, which is my first choice, says they have redesigned with a tube on long side where you will be able to connect, charge and store—available 12/14 or thereabouts. I bought the Apple folio after dragging out my old cheap folio and finding it works okay for the time being. I will probably...

    iPad pencil

    The connector is the 3 dots on back. The Pencil connects with flat side to side/top of Ipad

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    Thanks twerpoet. i actually have one about that size so guess I will do that. Hoping Zugu gets it right after redesign that I can use in lap or with Logitech keyboard at desk/table. I also have the Logitech Slimcase keyboard case for the gen 1 12.9 and like it fairly well because you can pull...

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    i have searched everywhere and no cases except Apple’s keyboard and folio allow for the Pencil 2 charging and storage while use. I wanted a ZUGU (Use w/a Logitech keyboard) and discovered that their 2018 wouldn’t work so they are redesigning to accommodate Pencil 2 charging. I understand that...

    iPad pencil

    And reading told me why—no practical way to connect/pair or charge since there is no lightning port. And the Pencil 2 charges wirelessly so current Ipad (I have first gen 12.9–but have ordered a gen 3 and new Pencil since I use it daily) can’t charge it. I was going to wait on the Pencil since...

    iOS 12 doesn’t appear in the app store app

    And I will say I really like it—on Ipad Pro 12.9 (first gen), older Iphone 6s+ and even put it on an older Ipad Air 2 (where it is faster, smoother).

    Charging Pencil from Ipad

    I bought a pair of short cables, about 10”, from ‘Aceyoon’ (?). I’ve used the first one now for almost a month and its a quick easy way to charge—Pencil in magnetic sleeve at top of ipad, put cable in Pencil first than plug into lightning port. I put cap on Ipad—held by magnets too at top...

    Charging Pencil from Ipad

    I had what I believe was a maybe 5” Techmatte cable but can’t swear—it worked for months—and quit, as you say. I really do think Apple should offer a short charging cable for the Pencil—so many do not want to charge by inserting Pencil lightning tip in Ipad’s port-or use the adapter with a...

    Charging Pencil from Ipad

    i’ve had the Pencil since the beginning and use it every day. I, like most, have had battery loss issues and solved it (mostly) by keeping Pencil in a separate case away from Ipad when not using. However, I found that not having it right there for immediate use sometimes when I’d like to use...

    Photo rant

    In truth, I prefer the Photo app way—all photos in Camera Roll and well organized in albums (and I then organize the albums alphabetically). I just rarely look in the CR (and most of my photos are uploaded from SD cards so that’s where the original is located) except when locating to process. I...

    No Ipad Pros WWDC it appears

    I did watch it—and am really looking forward to IOS12 which will refine 11 even more. Now from all I’m reading it will be worth it to wait for new hardware this Fall. Just read an article that working with RAW photo files is in the first 12 beta (good for me) and noticed the addition in Apple...
