Six Colors: iPad Pro Review »

Jason Snell of Six Colors recently wrote a post about using the iPad Pro in place of a Mac, but this week he published a more in-depth review of the iPad Pro, along with the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard. Jason describes the hardware as being top-notch, but it’s iOS that needs to grow a bit more now. This is a great read for anyone interested in the newest member of the iPad lineup.

Myke Hurley, co-founder of Relay FM, wrote a guest post for the new Apple Pencil. As someone who has his fair share of experience with traditional writing instruments (The Pen Addict podcast), Myke offers a unique perspective on this newest tool from Apple.

It might not be as good as real paper and real pens and pencils, but Myke explains that this is a big step in the right direction. If you’re interested in the Apple Pencil for your new iPad Pro, Myke’s informative review is essential.
