Riley's rant about USB totally made this video 😂
y'all really just want negativity huh
@Ingram Fry Don't give them ideas.
He needs to review the Kingdom Hearts series's naming conventions.
Everything's better than a lightning port!
Will applying dbrand skins correctly eventually be a test for whenever they hire new staff?
It'll be on the job description now
dbrand pays 1/per hour of the salary for every employee /s
Was rather triggered by the camera application too 😂😂
If they do it correctly they fail the interview
They dont hire staff they hire more robots
The vibe in these Apple unboxing vids has been very laissez-faire and I'm here for it.
Untrue, there isn't any slavery.
Mdr je connaissais pas cette expression
I’m guessing this means that the upcoming iPad Pro will switch to the M2.
@Memphis Furman probably be limited at 15w.
@The Night 15w is what the current iPad Pro uses with the M1 the M1 pro uses more but the m2 will probably also be 15w
@sovo94 just because, the M1 Pro and the M1 Max is more powerfull than the M1 is. They could easily rename the M1 in the iPad Pro's "M1 Pro/Max" and call it a day. Instead of actually putting an M1 Pro/Max in it.
@sovo94 Do you have any idea what a guess and what joking is? 🤦♂️🙄
@Carl Gunderson do you have any idea how chip cooling and TDP work?
It's a lovely idea having high speed transfer rates on the ipads. Except every time i open the files app and use an ssd, everything bricks up. Files app freezes. It's been a constant problem, it's never improved, and i don't understand why it's never discussed. As of right now, transferring files to an external device isn't a functional thing. But maybe all my external devices and ipads are just broken.
@kmoecub If I'm making sarcastic jokes I would've thought it'd be fairly obvious that I wasn't intending on having any sort of intellectual conversation about it. Just stupid silly jokes. Silly sausage ya
@Regan Brannigan Oh I do understand what it means. Should I have not clarified the issues with using the cloud in order to keep the conversation going? Silly goose.
I also have problems with Files being buggy. When you connect an external HDD, it doesn't give you an option to safely remove it. People on the internet say that once is the Files app done writing to the storage, you can just close Files and remove the drive. Except that's not the case. I had files corrupted by the M1 iPad pro multiple times... You have to completely shut ti iPad down in order to remove the storage. Also, it often just locks up when you try to manipulate with large files in any way. That's just sad...
@kmoecub It seems as though you don’t understand what the /s indicated
@Regan Brannigan 1. The cloud is just using other people's computers. Security is relatively lax. 2. Cloud storage costs $$$ if you have more than a few MB of data to store. 3. Accessing cloud storage is entirely dependent on having stable internet access. I can only do my job if my files are accessible even if internet access is down.
Riley is excellent. I do miss NCIX's tech news channel, but with Riley at LTT, life is fantastic.
iPads were already powerful enough, what they need to do is make iPad OS less restrictive.
@curly dude the affinity suite is actually quite ahead of the adobe suite for photo editing purposes on the iPad
@curly dude I want normal web browsers for proper add blocking but that’s just me.
@curly dude I believe the dev team want to make it, but the marketing team wouldn't allow it, because thay still want to sell their macbook
it's less the OS, we need more desktop grade applications. I want the full Adobe suite on it. I want full versions of Word and excel. I want real apps. It's powerful enough so just gimme! Fucking developers
those 2 need to do more videos together. that was the most I ever laughed in all LTT videos
@Marc i completely disagree. the banter between him and the camera guy was fantastic and pretty hilarious. its an unboxing video. its very boring so you need to spice it up
The mustache guy is the most cringe try-hard on the internet.
nothing I love more than a highly capable chip crippled by over restrictive software that can't take advantage of it.
@Lee Stone Pretty close? With energy saving ULV CPUs and integrated Graphics? Not really There was only one iGPU i ever trusted to be capable, and it was the Geforce 9400M chipset. Intel iGPUs still sucks. And damn, is the new Intel GPU really better than at least a 1050 Ti? If not, its pretty much useless. And if you say "you can play GTA V"... 1) you talk about a decade old game 2) whats "playable" in your opinion? 15 fps? probably 30 at ultralow graphics and 800x600? no thanks, thats UNPLAYABLE (especially for people used to 90-144 fps without any noticable input lag) The HP Spectre 360 is pretty ok. I bought once for my mum a Lenovo Yoga with Ryzen 5 and Vega 8, its also pretty awesome for its size, but the problem is somehow the 14" screen, its easily too small for being a proper laptop. As i said, there are no proper convertibles/tablet-notebook-AIOs aviable yet, at least not when you want really advantages of both sides in a decent amount. Things probably change with Windows ARM edition and windows devices with ARM CPUs, but it seems its a long road to this day.
@GOAT OF DUTY You can get pretty close if you go for a 13" 2 in 1. All the benefits of a small laptop with the option to turn it into a tablet too. I have a HP Spectre x360 & can use if for watching content, productivity applications, pen input for writing equations in MS Word/OneNote, & the integrated graphics are good enough to play games like GTA V & Mass Effect LE. Pretty much all I need in one laptop/tablet hybrid with the functionality of a full desktop OS. The reason I don't have a dedicated tablet is for similar reasons @rdvgrd6 pointed out, they're too restrictive.
@Talha Mukhtar You act as if other companies try to make a fusion out of Notebooks/"PCs" and mobile devices but they also don't do it
@RunForPeace 2020 all due respect friend, but… huh? Who said MacOS? MacOS is not the goal here. We already have a phenomenal MacOS M1 device. Several, in fact. I want an M1 iPad Air or iPad Pro that fully utilizes the hardware in a sensible manner. MacOS is not that, as you spent lot of time explaining sensibly, albeit in response to a point I didn’t make Right now, the M1 is simply better in a laptop. It yields better battery life, better real-world performance, and more flexibility in use case. I could understand if Apple wanted to dial down the performance of the iPad M1 to make it a better fit for portability. But they haven’t. They haven’t put in the work to make these two revolutionary advances in computing fit together correctly. And the main hinderance to that is the current state of iPadOS Maybe they need to split iPadOS into a consumer-grade and a pro-grade OS, maybe they need to discontinue support for the old, underpowered iPads, maybe they just need to work on cleaning up the back end. But for sure they need to do something if they want to pull the potential out of these devices
@RunForPeace 2020 an inferior desktop experience is better than no desktop experience. I mean, when I'm using desktop mode on my Surface Pro 99% of the time it's got at least the keyboard and trackpad plugged in, if not a mouse as well. If you've got an air or pro with a magic keyboard sitting on your desk there is no valid reason why that device shouldn't be able to run Mac OS.
A13 in the base iPad is the iPhone 11 Pro processor. It's still veryfast. Can easily edit video, etc. on it. It's the same speed as the Snapdragon 8 chip in the latest $1000+ Samsung Tab S8 tablets.
I love how Riley is basically real life Cherdley dad, a middle aged hilarious dude in a 20-something body. We love you, Riley
Thank you, USB Forum, for making USB names complicated as hell
You are a couple of years late.
Them including the deep cut of when James accidentally started to stream is why I love LTT
When was it? So... not the moment in the video, but when James accidentally started to stream :)
I love how it ends with Riley basically recommending 99.9% of regular people you just get the current cheap iPad instead. Which I feel like is probably totally true. An absolutely a cherry on top of this not review, review.
@Ano Muumit Yep, I feel the exact same. I still very much like tablets but I couldn't agree more as far as their functionality goes. We still haven't gotten a true replacement for a desktop/laptop though we keep getting closer and closer. It's definitely going to be a software thing and I can't help but wonder will it be Microsoft,Apple or somehow a third company that I can't think of that has a ton of money to pour into software R&D. The way I am looking forward to it being much better in the future though I can't help but wonder how long it's really going to take.
Tablets have been criticized for lacking functionality over the years and it hasn't changed. iPads (and tablets in general) are still overblown phones and laptops beat them for actual multipurpose use. Would love to see a tablet-like user interface and battery life with the added functionality you get with a full fledged OS on a tablet.
Well luckily, Apple is slowly making iPadOS more intuitive while keeping that simplicity that Apple devices have. They finally unlocked the ram a bit more for the 16GB pro. Maybe soon we’ll get some sort of 12GB ipad Air? XD
That would make it the cheapest M1 you can get, wouldn’t it? The only problem is you can’t get Steam, or Wow, or anything else. That’s what sets this apart from the M1 MacBook:-/
@jackedup447 it can. That’s called the m1 MacBook. Considering that they already have macOS running on the M1, it’s only a matter of time before someone just installs macOS on an iPad. You can’t do that on other platforms, hardware, or OS’s because the code isn’t there, and it’s usually done piecemeal by the community. If it runs at all. Apple already did the heavy lifting
tbh thats what pisses me off so much more. It has a M1 what the fuck do you mean you cant make it run MacOS?
Mac mini is the cheapest to play games
@ADee SHuPA BTW, I use Arch
Funny that power adapter are still shipped with iPads although "this has a significant impact on the environment"
@Kiwi Monster364 iPhone does not require a 20W charger. Anyway, another dimension to this is that the iPad is a separate device you might not buy as often as a phone and have as many chargers for. Also, Apple sells *significantly* more iPhones than iPads, so it makes for the biggest and most obvious reduction in e-waste
@Alej Sumit Both are 20w lol (Official Apple chargers). Inform yourself before talking bs
@Kiwi Monster364 Still not the same wattage as the iPad
@Alej Sumit Right... And what about fast charge on the new iPhones?
Also… 20watt charger for iPads vs wireless and all the 10 watt chargers that are out there.
M2 must be around the corner if Apple is slapping it on everything.
"Everythings better than a lightning port!" You should make this an actual jingle and submit it to the iTunes Store. Lol
I liked this video just because I enjoy watching Riley, I miss his crazy brother too.
Barret was fun, I miss him too
I would love to see FaceID and TouchID in Combination or only FaceID, and Landscape Camera or put two in itopposite in the corner so you can't cover one camera by accident.
*laughs in samsung* But yeah, i don't know why Apple can't use both
@Iku Turso they should have both. Especially phones
Yes. It is idiotic that macs and iPads have TouchID and phones have FaceID - it should be the opposite.
I highly approve of letting Riley go off-script. Best parts of the video.
Riley is amazing, he always makes me laugh so hard
Like they're well made tech, but after using a few over the years, tablets are just not super useful for me. I'd rather have a laptop in almost every scenario and dont want a touch device and a laptop instead of just a 2 in 1.
@Bilateralrope everybody is different, of course. The value proposition for me is how easy it is to get started. You pick up a light device that doesn't require you to change position and you can start doing things instantly. Without squinting at a tiny phone screen. Laptops feel very ungainly by comparison.
That's a discussion I've had with my dad a few times. He wanted to send me a tablet as a birthday present, but neither of us could think of anything I'd use it for. Oh, he had ideas. The closest he got to something I'd do was games, but I don't enjoy playing games on a touchscreen.
@scout tf2 I know that now lol
@Spooderboi that’s why you read specs and know laptops before buying
@Daniel Kaschel same. I think I was screwed over because I bought a “gaming” laptop that didn’t even have a dedicated Laptop GPU, and ran like shit even for small art stuff. Bought me a Ipad Pro and it already has replaced it perfectly (Games run better too ironically)
11:10 you can actually use the iPad Air with the bigger version of the Magic Keyboard. You just have to press the connectors from the iPad and the Keyboard together, just like the magnets would. It works, but it doesn’t holds onto the keyboard at all.
I swear the A12X from 4 years ago is still plenty fast enough
@Shaun Kellison It's problem of game itself. Pc version is buggy.
Right now I’m on a iPad Pro 2018 with the a12x and seriously it’s faster than I need right now
@JBlu 2018 iPad aged like fine wine, such a great deal, getting cheaper and cheaper
@James Cooper I still have a 4th gen but I don’t really use it, it’s basically just used for like recipes and stuff.
yeah I dont see ever replacing my 2018 11" it still does exactly what it needs to do
Damn, still remember buying an ipad 2 32GB Cellular version for OVER $800! And then buying an ipad 3 (retina) 32GB Cellular version 2 months later for ANOTHER $800 because I was stupid and didn't know the updated model was being released a month after I bought the 2... Funny thing is, the ipad 2 STILL WORKS! While the ipad 3 (retina) stopped charging and will no longer turn on.
Must have hurt when they released the iPad 4 like 6 months later.
Parents iPad 2 still works, just can’t update anything lol
And the funny thing is, the iPad 4 came out 6 months after the 3, so many people experienced the same thing with the 3.
I just replaced the battery in my iPad3. It was running great until the digitizer cracked, which why I opened it up. Putting in a new battery was just a bit of preventative maintainance.
So, Apple basically cut production price by using essentially the same casing.
Yes. It's a sensible, consumer-friendly decision that allows for backwards compatibility with many different accessories while allowing Apple to sell an M1-enabled device for $600. This is not a given for Apple, and we should encourage them to do this more often with more devices
And how is that a bad thing?
All sucessful manufacturers do whenever they can. Even saving a penny-per-part by using it on multiple products can potentially make the difference between earning a profit or taking a loss. It all comes down to volume and maximizing use across the product line.
I do think the m1 is a weird position towards the air as it feels oddly similar to the A15 being in an SE. I think they should have pushed to A12X instead and pushed with more fluid screen such as 90hz. It feels confusing to whats left of improving the air but its screen. I mean I'd probably choose the 10.5 iPad pro over this regardless of its chip advancements but usb c sure is a catch
I don’t know about anyone else, but I actually like Logitech’s Folio Touch case for my iPad Pro better than Apple’s Magic case. So much more flexible plus I just think it looks nicer.
@Talha Mukhtar 100% agreed! Plus for my usage, the kickstand is actually far more useful. Even when using it on my lap I’ve never found it to be a problem, and I love how I can prop it up comfortably next to me in bed to watch TV.
I bought a Combo Touch for myself and a Magic Keyboard for my artistic sister. I thought I was being the nice older brother, but it turns out I may have gotten the better end of the deal! I mean, don't get me wrong, the Magic Keyboard is pretty awesome. But while it's the absolute perfect keyboard experience for a tablet, it is a distressingly subpar case. The Combo Touch offers a phenomenal keyboard experience, though the Surface-style stand has as many cons as pros. Its case experience is easily superior, and it's half the price
i think its funny how every tech channel ridicules USB and HDMI naming in a merciless way just like it needs to be because even as a tech enthusiast its freakin confusing.
Most of Riley's videos have good, sometimes great humour, but every now and then, he is LEGENDARY! 🤣
The USB Implementers Forum need a clip around the ear and mandatory attendance at a basic numeracy class. Madness.
Really need to hear the rest of his free style about lighting ports.
🎶Every thing is better then a LIGHTING PORT 🎶🤣🤣🤣 need more
