    Hi, i’m planning to buy an iPad Pro 10.5 version. Is it value for your money if I will setup this unit as a laptop replacement for the office use? If yes, what accessories do I need, to make it as a laptop replacement? Thanks in advance.

    If you only need to do basic stuff like web browsing, emails, word processing, etc then I guess it could replace your laptop. You might find the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard indispensable.

    In my case, for work, I use it to complement my MBP. I do most stuff in my MBP but I use my 10.5" for meetings and presentations. I use Pages and Keynote a lot. I'm not adept at Numbers so I'm also subscribed to Office 365 primarily for Excel. I found it to be very useful for school, though. I am a law student and I use it for reading cases and note-taking. On split-screen, I normally use Notability on the left side for taking down notes and Dropbox on the right for my PDFs.

    Just got my iPad pro 10.5 yesterday (gold, 215gb, wifi only) and was looking for a case/cover. I've search and found the Moshi Versacover and it is to my liking. I was also looking for the Moshi Versakeyboard but to no avail. I will settle for the versacover for now. Have a great day everyone!

    Is there a good quality tempered glass worth P500-P700 for the iPad Pro? Also, can we buy MoKo smart case here in the PH? Planning to order at Amazon but if the case is available here, might as well buy from there.

    It should I guess. As long as you have the premium subscription. Will try it later. Deathnote I believe is in HDR.

    Same for me. Seems like the Facebook app doesn’t support Slide Over or Split View yet.

    There’s an editable description field in Metadata section. I haven’t fully explored it yet as I need more time to study how to really use it.

    I get most of my edits in Snapseed, Enlight and add filters using RNI and filmborn. Just a hobbyist

    Need help from users who bought a keyboard for the iPad Pro 10.5
    Aside from the Apple keyboard, any good 3rd party keyboard that you can recommend?
    I normally use the iPad for meetings and note-taking, but email has been my routine.
    I’ve been searching for quite sometime like the Logitech keyboard (with backlit) but for some reason it’s only available for the 12 inch model at Powermac.

    Really appreciate all the help!

    - Rick

    I recently bought my iPad Pro 10.5 and wanted a keyboard to use it with straight away. I was looking at the Logitech Slim Combo but read all the bad reviews online. I ended up getting the Apple Smart Keyboard (using it now to post this). Really, the only drawback of this Smart Keyboard is it isn't backlit. Otherwise, it's perfect for the iPad Pro 10.5.

    I think you should seriously consider the Smart Keyboard, bro.

    Thanks Sir, appreciate your thoughts.
    Really tempted to get the Smart Keyboard but your right, non-backlit is a dealbreaker for me...
    On normal days, I would strike doing emails most of the time even at home whenever demands kicks in, hence backlit will be more than useful for me. Thanks again Sir!
