bought a new case to revitalize my old ipad. verdict: good purchase.
what up ipad os frens.
I have been a mac fan for years. I love the things that can be done with "old" apple products. Some tinkering and a will to keep the old tech alive, somehow. My significant other had an aged ipad air 2 that was "acting up" and unresponsive to home button clicks. After a physical clean up involving some wipes and some small tools. I did a clean OS re-install and forced iTunes on my macbook to slowly but surely upgrade it all the way to ios 15 which resurrected the device. (days later)
I bought a Zagg bluetooth physical keyboard case combo on amazon for easy travel when its in my bag. It was exactly the sort of accessory that I really liked. rugged Design and utility. It's a really great keyboard and can be synced to my iPhone or Android device in a pinch if my ipad is charging. After using it inside google keep and the stock ios notes app, a few times while my macbook air was charging, I am slowly using it more and more for all my day to day ideas, notes, calendars, emails, and even iMessage has been significantly more fun. Love the multi tasking button.
I have wanted the "split screen feature" (found easily on my Pixel 6 Pro ) on my current iPhone 13 Pro since my return to ios on the iPhone 11 Pro Max (another great phone i loved) and still surprised that it doesn't exist on iPhones, but things like "island display" get the big push on the development side. Just a small complaint.
I can easily see myself getting another used iPad Mini, in the future, to see what other e-waste shenanigans I can get into.
