iPadPro-Apple-Pencil-SmartKeyboard_PR-PRINTI finally am able to get a chance to write about not only the new 9.7 inch iPad Pro, but to also discuss the new accessories. My college Charlotte Mackie wrote a great review of the iPad Pro itself, and I’m not going to rehash that. My focus for this review will be the iPad Pro specific accessories.
Smart Keyboard – This is similar to the smart cover introduced back with the iPad 2, using magnets to secure the cover to the iPad, as well as shut off the iPad when closed. Now to that add a keyboard that is very comfortable to use. So not only does it function as a stand, but also a very competent keyboard. The use of this keyboard allows for more real estate. The price is $169 for the 12’ model and $149 for the 9.7” model.
Apple Pencil – I waited initially to buy the Apple Pencil. At first I din’t think I would need it as I am far from an artist. I talked to some others that had one and decided to take a shot. I am glad I did. As I stated before I wasn’t buying it to draw anything, I found that hand taking notes it is a great experience. it far easier to take notes with a pencil than to type on the keyboard.Additionally I can also include drawings in my notes as well as mark up PDF’s and other documents . Many applications are “pencil” enabled. for example the native notes app, but I found that my go to notes app is Microsoft’s One Note. If you have the iPad Pro, give the Pencil a shot.
