“New iPad positions itself as a top tool for wedding and event planners.”
After working in technology for years, people may be skeptical of the hype when new (or improved) products come out. Because Apple is also the master of “hype,” that makes it even harder to discern fact from fiction oftentimes. But at the same time, Apple also produces some forward-thinking products that are many years ahead of their time. With a healthy dose of skepticism, I starting testing a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro right after Christmas to see if it could help make work more productive and efficient. Could I use a stylus with a tablet after all these years working on paper and a nontouch screen laptop? The $1,500 cost (when you include all the accessories) was not the primary issue; the main question was would it save us any time working with our teams internally and also customers? After a few weeks of daily testing, I can honestly say the answer is a resounding yes. While I have used tablets for many years, this is the first tablet that has near the capability of a laptop and, in many cases, can do things my laptop can’t.
