Apple published a new 60-second spot through its official YouTube channel yesterday, provocatively titled “5 reasons iPad Pro can be your next computer”. And here they are:
- It’s more powerful than most computers.
- Use multiple apps at the same time and drag and drop between them
- Switch apps using gestures
- Use two apps at the same time
- It’s anything you want it to be as long as there’s an app for that.
- It goes anywhere and stays connected everywhere.
Easily browse, search, and organize all of your documents in the Files app — and access them from any of your iOS devices.
- Using it as easy as tapping, swiping, pinching and dragging.
It gives you instant access to the things you do the most. Quickly take a picture, turn on lights, or control your Apple TV — all with just a swipe.
- It’s even better with Apple Pencil
- You can use Apple Pencil to write, markup, and draw with built-in apps and apps from the App Store. With some apps, like Notes, you can draw and sketch with an Apple Pencil.
- With iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch, you can double-tap the lower section of Apple Pencil to quickly switch back to the tool you used last.
You can change what happens when you double-tap your Apple Pencil by going to Settings > Apple Pencil. Choose between these: switch between current tool and eraser, switch between current tool and last used, show color palette, off.
What if your Apple Pencil won’t pair with your iPad?
- Make sure to center your Apple Pencil on the magnetic connector on the right edge of the iPad
- Restart your iPad, then try to pair again
- Go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure that Bluetooth is turned on
- On the same screen, look under My Devices for your Apple Pencil. If you see it, tap Forget this Device
- Connect your Apple Pencil in to your iPad and tap the Pair button when it appears after a few seconds
- If you don’t see the Pair button, wait for one minute while your Apple Pencil charges. Then try connecting your Apple Pencil again and wait until you see the Pair button.
- If you still don’t see the Pair button, contact Apple Support.
