So I recently had the chance to upgrade my iPad Mini for the iPad Pro. First of all, WOW; what a huge improvement! I’ve always wanted a Wacom tablet to do all my design work but knowing the versatility of the iPad I just decided to upgrade and use all the features that the Apple world have to give.  The fluid and response motion of the drawing is dam near paper like. I also love the fact that palm rejection works very well with the pen. I’ve also noticed that the pressure and tilt response is pretty good, press hard and you get a darker ink effect as well when you lightly tap. The size of the iPad I have is the 10.5in which is think is perfect! Not too big and not too small for travel and in house use. The only few things that threw me off is how do I know the apple pen is turned off, no indication on the iPad to turn off or any LED lights on the pen itself; I soon found out that it will go on sleep mode when the Bluetooth is turned off. I haven’t depleted the battery of the pen on a full charge so I can’t really say on heavy use how long it will last but so far it seems fair. The iPad has somewhat of an ok battery life starting at 100% and using the adobe apps, I might of only used like 6-10% of the battery doing this sketch which seems ok but I feel like it shouldn’t use that much but then again I don’t know much about the tech going on inside so can’t really say too much. Overall I really love the upgrade and how fast and nice the ipad screen looks so very happy with it.
