      @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

    • Carl Gunderson
      Carl Gunderson

      @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.

  • Randuski

    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

    • kmoecub

      @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.

    • OK1LAD

      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...

    • Regan Brannigan
      Regan Brannigan

      @kmoecub It seems as though you don’t understand what the /s indicated

    • kmoecub

      @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.

    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.

    • Lee Stone
      Lee Stone

      @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.

  • The_Wiki

    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.

      @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.

    • Ano Muumit

      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.

  • Thewaterspirit57

    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

  • Michael Skinner
    Michael Skinner

    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:-/

    • Michael Skinner
      Michael Skinner

      @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

    • jackedup447

      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?

    • Alej Sumit

      @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

    • Kiwi Monster364

    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.

    • Daniel Kaschel
      Daniel Kaschel

      @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.

    • Bilateralrope

      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.

Funny thing is, the ipad 2 STILL WORKS! While the ipad 3 (retina) stopped charging and will no longer turn on.

    So, Apple basically cut production price by using essentially the same casing.

    • Talha Mukhtar
      Talha Mukhtar

      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

    • rdvgrd6

      And how is that a bad thing?

    • kmoecub

      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.

  • Sam

    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

  • Caden Churchill

      @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

      @Grey Lawson I own an iPad Pro M1 myself the smooth elegant simplicity is impressive where it shines best in certain applications. Yet the closed nature where I have to jump through loopholes to manage local 📂 and files, the blocking of sideoading 3rd party apps or emulators. It is decent but it could be better by being more open and complex in other key areas like file management and document/art creation. True ownership of Adobe & Microsoft Software rather than subscriptions money grubbing. Thankfully I do own a High Spec Personally Built Windows 10 PC for the real pro stuff while the iPad serves as a supplemental simplied portable on the go additional tool.

    • Talha Mukhtar
      Talha Mukhtar

      @curly dude wellllll... it is also Apple's fault. I mean, it's their product in the end, and they set the ground rules for what constraints developers have to follow. For instance, the fact that iPadOS refuses to let an app take advantage of the full 8 (let alone 16) gigs of RAM on an iPad Pro fundamentally limits the device. Like, one of the innovations of the M1 chip is its unified memory, which is wasted on an OS that doesn't trust apps with any more than a smidge of memory

    • Grey Lawson

      @PetrixZ SeVeNz 2 dude it either doesn't work for your workflow or you're just not a professional, because I know plenty of people that use an iPad Pro to its full extent.

      @Dicey Yes, there are. One of which is the lightning port's horrendous USB 2.0 speeds on the base model iPad, but that's not the iPad professionals buy, they get the Pro model with the 40Gb/s Thunderbolt 4 port. I can go on about the screen, battery life, and other hardware limitations but the points already clear

    • curly dude
      curly dude

      @PetrixZ SeVeNz 2 Well that isn't really apples fault. Developers could put the entire Adobe suit on the iPad, they could even make it identical to the Mac version. Hell they run the same hardware now. They just....don't. I use my iPad pro for lightroom mostly, and then lumafusion and affinity photo. Fantastic and very powerful apps. Other than that and note taking I don't have much use for it. Sometimes I connect it to the TV to mirror the screen. Or just for watching videos or reading. If the iPad didn't have those three apps and the pen I wouldn't really see any use in the device tbh.

    I'm done with Apple. Having routinely purchased it's high-end suite of products since about 2008, everything over the past 8 years has failed dramatically and the standard of support has waned to a position of non-existence. The last gen iPad Air I purchased for my wife developed a single hairline crack across the screen due to a manufacturing/materials flaw (known issue); however, despite being in warranty Apple support were deliberately adversarial and refused to assist. I have had the same experience with the previous batch of 'Pro' tier products, from iPhones to Airpods to Macbooks. Awful degradation to what was once a very respectable and innovative company with decent business ethics.

    From my experience owning an iPad Air generation 4, I would not be calling it a computer. It is, however, the best Chromebook as it can actually do everything a Chromebook can and more. So if all you're doing is using a word processor, the web, and Spotify, it is close enough to a PC to be very good.

      Yes I agree, however, I have been using mine to SSH to my PC to quickly run something, so technically you can code on it

    One of my favorite LMG movements was Riley’s little b roll skit where he’s talking an iPad picture in public and is soo excited

  • Thewaterspirit57

    I think all day battery means, you can use it between hours, and it’s standby battery usage is quite low. Like, even on this iPad 5th Gen, it can last all day on a full charge, because sometimes I have it idle and locked for 30 minutes between some usages

    The back case felt thinner, even though the iPad Air kept getting heavier and heavier over the years.

    Riley, You should try reviewing a Galaxy Tab S8 with Dex Mode - seriously I have switched from an iPad Air to a Tab S7 and it's freakin great, especially that I can make calls from it and use it mounted as my infotainment system for my car! And I can make calls and text from it without my phone on me unlike Apple iPad bullcrap

    • Eno

      Because you can tailor Android to your needs. It feels like YOUR device, as opposed to using Apple products: it feels like it's still theirs and you're just dealing with how to use it.

    • Artur

      @Doomy_Doomy Pro or no? :)

    • Doomy_Doomy

      I am the opposite. I switch from the tab s7 to the iPad.

    • Artur

      Aaand TBH I loved the iPad, but it felt to me like an always limited device...Connecting to monitor, multitasking, copying files from my dslr - waay better on S7. Phonecalls also were a deal breaker to me as 50% of the time I didnt get any on my iPad from an iPhone.. and in Samsung I just have a sim card and it calls like a regular phone but with bigger screen :)

    The USB and HDMI standards are getting really screwed up name wise. Is it HDMI 2.1 VRR? Who knows. Does it support USB 3.1 Gen 1? Gen 2? 2x1? 1x2? 3.2? 3.3?

    It's kinda sad that the performance of the M1 chip is mainly for future software support instead of using it now for playing games on emulators or actual games like on consoles and pc.

    When he said 250 USD, I was thinking "Not a bad price, I'll consider it." I thought he was talking about the tablet.

    wow i guess i've made a big mistake buying ipad's before😂

    The M1 would be great if it wasn't irrevocably limited to MacOS natively. They just released some alpha code for Linux support, but that's all reverse engineered clunky cruddy grody stuff.

    I am watching this on the iPad Air 5 and the new iPad has a weird quality because it doesn’t feel fragile but the back plate bends a little with minimal effort and the battery life is atrocious.

    The IRglo UI not wanting to go away is a known issue. But fixing it doesn't involve advertising or tracking you so they don't care.

  • Kytetiger

    I still didn't understood the new USB naming convention. Riley, you will have to make a full video explaining it :p

  • ATechGuy2016

    Didn't watch the video yet but expect it to get around 10 years of updates. Anyways what I find funny is that the M1 in here has 8GPU cores while the iMac base model gets 7 for much more money.

    I’m typing this on my 2015 12.9 1st gen pro. Still nippy enough, although it does lag a bit. The upgrades I’d be interested in are the 4K camera, chip, and ram. The new screens are always shinier etc. I use mine for watching videos, making music (Cubasis) and I use my iPhone 12 for making IRglo videos- with a class compliant interface. Right now there isn’t enough to make me want to change my current iPad. I don’t like that apps won’t work unless updated, so I get shoved off the end. That’s my one gripe with iOS…. My little netbook from 2011 is still going strong, the thing saw me through a lot of coursework back in the day….

    Is the iPad Pro better than the MacBook Pro at enough tasks making it worth owning both?
