How Can iPad Replace Laptops If Its A Big iPhone

By  | 

Apple seems to want the iPad to take over from laptops. But if this is so maybe they should make sure that the software on the device isn’t just a revision of the software that is on the phone.

iOS works great on a smartphone, however for a tablet it isn’t good enough. Apple has been working taking smartphones up to tablets, while Microsoft is working the other way around turning from tablets to smartphones.

Microsoft may be winning right now as they are making tablets that are more capable, but at the same time they are not doing do well with smartphones. Some owners of the Surface Pro 4 have said that it’s not a tablet that is more capable, but a laptop that is weaker.

There is a lot of difference between the Surface Pro 4 compared to an iPad when you have been using it for a few hours. The dimensions are not as comfortable and software hasn’t been designed to work well on touch displays.

In the end when wondering if the iPad can replace a laptop you have to consider the fact that one is a laptop trying to be a tablet and the other is a tablet trying to be a laptop.

Do you think the iPad could replace a laptop?

    Not a chance! Ask iPad pro may be a great consumption device but without a trackpad asked mouse options and with only a Mobil OS there is no way that it can really replace a PC.
