… a second, first let’s chat about the new iPad Pro line and what it symbolises for Apple’s future … Steve Jobs once used a metaphor: Tablets are like cars, desktops are like trucks. Yes, people still need trucks to do the heavy lifting, but most people make do with a car because its better suited to their task. So, where the does the iPad Pro fit into this metaphor?
Personally, I think there are still a lot of people who drive trucks, that would be better suited driving a van (yes, we’re still in the metaphor here). Is there enough people to create a revolution? Maybe not. But that’s not necessarily the point of the iPad Pro. The iPad Pro encapsulate’s Apple’s vision of providing powerful technology in its most simple form — the 9.7" model is an extension of this vision.
