First impressions of the iPad Pro
What's up Brian Tong here with theapplybyte you know what we do.
It's everything good and bad inside the world of Apple, and the iPad Pro is here.
LIke I have it right here, and it's glorious.
Like look let me show you right here.
[LAUGH] It's as big as my face!
It's that big!
All right, now, as per request by some of you, I will not make out with it, and even if I did, it's so big now.
That's what she said.
You wouldn't even be able to see it happen.
So, I'm gonna spend a good amount of time in my review from someone who actually paid for it with their own money is coming in next week, she'll also I still need extended quality time with the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard.
But you might ask, Brian, you just bought the iPad Pro.
But see Apple decided to make the pencil and keyboard available a week later even if you preordered instead of holding off and selling the iPad Pro and the pencil and the Smart Keyboard case at the same Time.
The pencil is this iPad's biggest differentiator.
It's the showcase feature.
And you can't even buy one on day one?
That's just stupid.
And you know what?
That's a bad apple.
[NOISE] And yes my voice just cracked.
But sure, they're bad.
But the best thing about this iPad?
And no it's not the fact that the Apple pencil is awaited to roll on it's side with the word pencil facing up.
Now this guy delivers notebook level performance with its A9X chip that's even faster than the current 12 inch Macbook retina with an Intel 4 dual processor.
It still falls short of 2015 Broadwell or Skylight based machines.
But its GPU performance is ridiculous, outperforming a 2015 15 inch retina Macbook Pro In addition to other MacBooks and all the iPads.
This thing ain't the iPad Pro, this thing is the iPad Beast.
Tim Cook told the Telegraph, the iPad pro is a replacement for a notebook for many, many people.
They will start using it and conclude they no longer need to use anything else, other than their phones.
Come on Tim, I'm sorry, even the hardcore fanboys know you're Drinking a little too much of the Kool-Aid.
Now it still doesn't seem like this is a device that will be able to replace my old laptop, but like I said I'll give it a go.
See, Apple Vita promising big things from this with a new TV ad, in fact they're promising the universe with the iPad Pro.
Oh yeah, wow.
This is beautiful.
Keep on, Yeah.
I'm feeling this.
Oh, this is sweet.
No, no, no, no.
I'm in this girls iPad!
Oh that tickles!
Tip of the day, don't get stuck in someone's iPad.
All right since we're on the topic of the iPad and buying new goodies from the store, if you had to guess, what do you think the lowest rated product on Apple's online store is?
Gonna give you a moment to think about it.
Okay, well it's actually two things.
You are correct if you said Apple's lightning to USB cable, with over 1000 one star reviews.
All of my original ones were destroyed.
And the other, Apple's MagSafe power adapter, with over 1000 one star reviews of its own.
Arguably, the two least Durable products from Cupertino that continuously fray, or the rubber coating breaks, or it just stops working.
It's been this way for years, and it's pretty clear all 1,000-plus of you who already threw your own bad apples at them, but I'll just pile on here.
Apple will release their latest software updates for developers, the second tvOS 9.2 beta for the Apple TV is out now.
And the third betas for iOS 9.2 and OS 10.11.2.
Apple Music is also now finally available on Android on the Google Play store.
Memberships still cost $9.99 a month but this could be a nice addition for a mixed Apple and Android household with the $14.99 family plan.
Believe it or not, those families do exist.
And the Steve Jobs movie, yes, That one is now officially a complete bomb in box offices.
It's so bad, that Universal has pulled the movie from over 2,000 screens.
Projections from its debut weekend were between $15 and $19 million, and up to this point, it's just earned over $16 million.
Now, it unfortunately shared the same fate as the 80s cartoon reboot for Jem and the Holograms.
That was also pulled From over 2,000 screens by Universal.
And, I never thought I'd have Jem and Steve Jobs in the same story, like ever.
And to end things on a good note you've got to check out this awesome customization from the people at Color Ware.
If you've ever wanted a retro 80's iPhone 6s.
Check out this color job with the beige coloring, fake air vents, and that signature Apple rainbow logo.
Now the phone's just sold out.
They made only twenty five units for fifteen ninety nine a pop.
That's one thousand five hundred ninety nine for you guys who think you're cool but only think you're cool because you have one and no one else thinks you're cool.
Alright, that's going to do it for this weeks show.
You can send me your questions and comments email@example.com or tweet me at briantong.
Thanks so much for watching and we'll catch you next week for another byte of the apple.
Oh, this is sweet!
