Apple's incredible 12.9" iPad Pro doesn't come cheaply. To pick one up at your nearest Apple retail store, you'll need to drop at least $799.00 before taxes. Its steep price could leave you questioning whether you and your family really need one.
Of course, there's no doubt that the iPad Pro is a luxury device, and you could go on to live your life without one; but there are at least eight important reasons why an iPad Pro will make a fantastic addition to your life. Continue reading to learn eight ways you can justify buying an iPad Pro.
8 Browse Apps Together Happily
There are plenty of apps that family members browse together. Maybe you and your spouse use Zillow or Trulia to search for a new apartment to rent, or a new house to buy. Passing an iPhone back and forth so each person can get a glance at the screen is, well, annoying.
The iPad Pro is large enough that two people can look at it together without butting heads (literally). This makes browsing apps together easier, less stressful, and ultimately so much more enjoyable. After purchasing an iPad Pro, there are a few apps you simply won't use your iPhone for ever again.
7 It Makes Reading E-Books Enjoyable Again
Reading is a relaxing way to enjoy downtime any day of the week. Your iPhone features the iBooks app where you can store all of your e-books, and the reading application itself works great. However, it's painful to read a novel on the iPhone's small display.
With an iPad Pro, eye strain is a thing of the past. Its large display makes reading comfortable. Couple that with the fact that all of your iBooks can be synced to your iPad Pro using iCloud, transitioning to your new device is easy. The iPad Pro makes reading enjoyable again.
6 News Content Looks Incredible
Okay, so the iPad Pro is great for reading e-books, but let's not stop there. It's great for reading everything, and it will make you want to read everything, like Apple News. The Apple News app is fantastic, bringing all of your favorite news sources into one beautiful feed. While it's available on all iOS devices running iOS 9 or later, the Apple News app really shines on the iPad Pro.
Gorgeous photos and intuitive layouts make consuming the news better on iPad than ever before. While the Apple News app is great on iPhone, it really stands out on the iPad Pro.
5 Watch HD TV Anywhere
The iPad Pro's 12.9" Retina display is vivid and videos pop on this sharp display. With its quad speakers and True Tone ambient color matching technology, you'll be tempted to watch YouTube in bed on the iPad rather than turning on the TV.
Using a Smart Cover by Apple you can prop up the iPad Pro at an angle and voila; you have a TV anywhere.
Never flip through the channels on a hotel TV again, with an iPad Pro you have all of your favorite movies and TV shows on a brilliant portable display.
4 Get Creative, Unwind
Apple's devices are known for their prowess in the creative field. Graphic designers, photographers, web developers, and artists alike flock to devices like the iPad Pro simply because they're built for creativity. But you don't need to be a creative professional to make use of an iPad Pro.
If you're a fan of adult coloring books, you'll absolutely cherish spending downtime unwinding with a digital coloring book using an Apple Pencil and an iPad Pro. If you want to kick it up a notch, advanced apps like Adobe Illustrator Draw are incredible for creating graphic designs and brilliant illustrations.
3 Games Are Better
If you're a fan games for iPhone, you'll find a few that are inexplicably better on an iPad Pro. Games like Words With Friends or Sodoku seem to be made for a larger screen. Less eye strain and a more relaxed seating position with this large device makes brain games and word puzzles more comfortable (and ultimately more fun).
2 It's a Family Hub for Smart Devices
The iPhone is a personal device, you have your emails, social networks, photo albums, iMessages, and more, which are yours and not necessarily meant to be shared. However, the iPad Pro is a device meant to be shared amongst the family - and this is why it's a perfect device for your smart home.
Because it's so large, it's impossible to lose. Leave the iPad Pro on the coffee table, and everyone in the family will know exactly where to go to shut off the smart lamps or close the smart blinds. Even if you don't have a smart home, chances are you have an Apple TV, which leads me to my next point.
1 You'll Never Lose the Remote Again
Seriously, this is a big deal. The Apple TV Siri remote is wonderful, but it's basically built to be lost. You've probably experienced countless moments of pure frustration searching for an Apple TV remote. Well, search no longer.
The iPad Pro running iOS 11 has the ability to act as an Apple TV remote, and this feature can even be accessed quickly from the Control Center.
Like I've mentioned before, the iPad Pro is large and it's nearly impossible to lose track of. If you keep your iPad Pro on a coffee table or night stand, you can rest assured you'll always have a backup remote nearby. It's these small moments of happiness when you realize that you, and your family, truly deserve an iPad Pro.
