I haven’t used my iPad Pro in days. In fact, I kind of forgot it existed, as last week I guiltily realized I’d buried my longtime daily writing companion under a pile of papers as though it were a random piece of trash.
But the guilt passed quickly. Within seconds my attention had already turned back to my new iPhone XS Max, a device that does many of the tasks my iPad Pro does more comfortably and efficiently. And I highly doubt I’m alone in that thinking.
A world in an inch
Nothing about the iPhone XS Max won me over quite like its gorgeous 6.5-inch display. That’s “only” a diagonal inch larger than the iPhone 8 Plus, but that extra inch makes the iPhone XS Max good enough for activities that used to leave me reaching for my iPad. Heck, it sometimes makes my iPad feel superfluous. That extra inch blurs the transition line between the iPhone and the iPad, to the point that I feel confident in saying it effectively eliminates any chances of a iPad mini reboot.
