This is a followup video to the popular video with a similar title I made about a year ago. Some things have changed since then: we now have Trackpad and Mouse support on iPadOS and there are some apps from the previous video I don't use anymore and others that I've since discovered. Hope you get some good ideas here!

    Hi! I have a question: I make 3d models for the university with the rhinoceros program, is there an app (and if so, which one) that allows you to import rhino files into the ipad and project them into the surrounding space via the LiDAR scanner? It would be very convenient for me to better analyze the objects I am designing.
    Thank you very much, greetings from Italy!

    Do we need screen protector for the screen & camera lens in ipad pro? I use my ipad pro mainly for drawing with apple pencil.
    Some people said the protector it will affecting the apple pencil performance and the camera protecter will make quality of the picture less. but i am afraid i will damage the screen if doesn't have protector. Please share your thought about it.

    Well paperlike is an awesome company. They sent me a new paperlike without asking much when mine came with a bent on it. But apple....
    Just a month and a half ago I bought my 2020 iPad Pro. It came off the box with a scratch on the back and some black spots on it. Apple sent me to a service provider. The provider after 15 days denied fixing it because it’s “cosmetic” and Apple doesn’t let them fix it for me. After that I contacted apple again. They said I need to wait for approval from their mechanics for a replacement. They texted me two days later that they accept it. Three days later and the fedex didn’t take it yet. I called apple, they said they don’t know. FedEx called me after that and they said apple just called them and they will take it 5 days later because it’s too late to come in this day to take it and then they don’t work on weekends and it was January 1 that they don’t work too. They took it on Monday. Three days later I had no news. I called apple they said it’s a problem of the delivery being slow. I called the delivery they said it’s apple that chose the economy shipping that will take 13 days to reach to apple and then they will take another 13 days I guess to send me another one after they take one or two days in between for their people to check if I really sent the iPad or I sent them a empty box because this is why they don’t ship a new iPad to me before they receive the old one. Then I called them and said why your company is so cheap and make me wait another month it’s like you do it on purpose and you want me to keep the damaged one, you could charge me the delivery fee and pay a faster one, they replied “so you want to keep the old one sir?” . DISGUSTING COMPANY.
    Never buying anything from them again and I’ll also be taking legal action against them

    I just bought the ipad pro 12.9 inch. I have a lot of the apps you mentioned. I too have the awesome ipad mini 5. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. The main reason I bought the new 12.9 inch is I like procreate a lot but the mini just didn’t have enough for lack of a better word Balls to do the things I wanted to in procreate.
    I’m definitely subscribing to your channel that was some good information. I would just like to see where you have put the links so I can go back and see which of the apps I want to get that I don’t have.
    I’m probably the oldest person watching this. but I am one that swims over anything technology. I will admit my age I am a woman 64 years old. And I can run circles around a lot of many many younger people than me on an iPad on a Mac and on a PC. enough bag I’m here to learn.

    I bought one of these new ipad Airs. Then I had to buy a USB C hub and various cables and adapters. It looks like an octopus hanging of the side of the single USB C port. What an eyesore. How stupid in this day and age. Apple couldn't byild these ports into the iPad? What a joke. The audio apps that it uses are pretty rad, but audio interfaces, storage etc, all hinge on dongles hanging off of the single USB C port.....lame lame lame. Plus these iPads are way over priced. I think I will sell it and buy another Laptop PC or build anew PC.

    I love my Apple products, but it really pisses me off that Apple won’t work with a lot of basic file endings. I have about 40,000 karaoke songs and can’t get them on my IPod Pro 2018 with a terabyte memory. My songs are mp3g, cdg, and mp4g,. I haven’t found a way to convert them to work on my iPad Pro. Karaoke files are two part. One file for music and one file for graphics that run simultaneously. Any help would be appreciated.
