The iPad Awkwardly Turns 10


Software is where the iPad has gotten lost. iPadOS’s “multitasking” model is far more capable than the iPhone’s, yes, but somehow Apple has painted it into a corner in which it is far less consistent and coherent than the Mac’s, while also being far less capable. iPad multitasking: more complex, less powerful. That’s quite a combination.

I couldn't agree with Gruber more. I am a Mac power user who has been troubleshooting and repairing them for 20+ years. I've had multiple iPads over the last ten years. I still don't fully grasp split screen multitasking mechanics on my iPad Pro and never intentionally use it.
