The $350 mistake! Why did I let APPLE do this to me again?

by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

Ladies generally did it to me again Apple done tricked me into buying something now spending too much money on the something is just too little in value ladies and gentlemen they done got me again what am I gonna do it's total shenanigans it's craziness by the way like I know some of y'all gonna be like well how did Apple trick you in anything I mean I'm gonna tell you a couple of instances where I feel like I was tricked duped I got to hootie-hoo the dope to do the whip whap flim-flam you know what I mean when you get when you get Jack when you go to when you buy

Something off of Craigslist and then you go to get a name game what dating what you thought it was gonna be that that sort of thing although kind of in Reverse because Apple allows you to know that something is good but just charges you all types of money for it and at some point you paint yourself in no corner and you gotta you gotta buy it let me tell you something I am an American I live in America where when we make a decision and it becomes a mistake we blame other people that's right I'll take credit for things that I have no control over and if I make a choice

About something and it goes bad I'm gonna blame somebody else it's the American Way so I'm exercising my rights to do that right now but anyway I'm gonna tell you exactly what happily checked me into buying and I'm kind of glad they did I'll tell you all about it right after this what players welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is Travis and I do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing them if that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything I talk

About will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video now some of you know that I edit all of my videos here on YouTube on my iPad pro now I have the 12.9 iPad pro 2020 edition I don't necessarily need that one so let me rewind back and explain why I ended up buying the magic keyboard for the iPad pro and why I'd kind of upset about it first of all I love the iPad pro it allows me to edit 4k footage and export it in real time that is to say if I have a four minute video that I've that I'm exporting a four minute YouTube video it will

Actually render that a complete video in four minutes which is really amazing considering it's a tablet number one and there's no fans for context I have a computer with 16 gigs of RAM 8 cores and like an 8 gig GPU that can't do that it can't do it as fast as my iPad it's pretty amazing so when the 20/20 version the iPad pro came out I was a little bit excited like I knew that I wanted to go from my then 11 inch to a 12.9 but I didn't want to read by the 2018 version of the iPad pro because like you know I wanted the bigger screen I knew that I liked it

That much and I want a bigger screen but I figured the 20/20 version was right around the corner and it was it came out this year and Apple got me with the hootie-hoo because I bought it and it's it's it's no it's no better here's the thing the iPad pro 12.9 an 11 inch from 20/20 is basically the same exact thing as the iPad pro from 2018 there is essentially two differences one of which makes no difference and the other makes very little difference that first difference is the camera array on the back it's now a square and you can do AR stuff

Whoop-dee-doo any other difference which was the reason that I bought it is the 812 z-y something or other anyway the original processor on the iPad pro was an a 12 X and now this is the a 12 Z so you would think it's better I have not been able to validate that it's any better stay with me on this I'm gonna get to the magic keyboard in a minute but I need you to understand why I got the iPad pro in the first place which will explain why I got the magic keyboard why I think it's a mistake I bought the 20/20 version expecting that a year and a half later a new piece

Of hardware would be faster than the old piece of hardware I know crazy right I mean literally that never happens in phones or tablets or computers you never buy a new piece of hardware and have it be actually faster and while it does have more RAM it didn't make a difference in anything that I do as a matter of fact I actually shot part of a video as I was going to release a video about upgrading to the 20/20 version and I figured the best way I could test out the power was to render the same exact 4k video on both my 2018 and my 20/20 there was less than one second

Difference between the two you would think by faith that you would buy something newer and it would be faster nope I could also say they got me in the iPhone 11 Pro max at 256 gig because 64 and $1000 just didn't make sense to me so I bought the 256 gigs there was no 128 gig version available they kind of painted me into a corner I knew 64 wasn't gonna be enough although again it was actually enough so that's another failure kind of sucks and that brings me to the magic keyboard it's actually really good I like it a lot so you might be wondering why am i complaining about

It well for two reasons number one it's three hundred and fifty dollars for the twelve point nine inch or $300 for the 11 inch it's a freaking keyboard I actually talked about this when they first announced it let me let me roll that clip oh there's a new iPad pro oh that's awesome I added all my videos on my iPad pro I love iPad pro let me go check it out oh snap and it's the same price and more storage your voice gonna get one your boy it's gonna get why let me go ahead and place this order oh they got a new keyboard oh look at it it's floating son

No that's nice let me get a mean look at this okay we put a trackpad on it y'all really that's kind of dumb you got a touch screen on the iPad why do you need a but wait that doesn't some doesn't feel right here why would they put a track pet how much is this thing what and look here it's just the keyboard it's not even a Bluetooth keyboard it literally gets its power from the iPad which is actually one of the things I like about it but you're not paying for Bluetooth technology at all at all like you're paying for something that gets scuffed up so easily

On the outside it's absolutely ridiculous now you might say well they have a less expensive version of a keyboard folio that you can buy and I did that's another mistake that things $200 and it's like typing on mashed potatoes it's terrible there's basically no redeeming value on that thing $200 for something that types like trash scuffs so easily and basically it's just not worth your money the only redeeming value about it is it's kind of finish when you put it on your iPad it doesn't take up a lot of extra space so you don't really want that if you buy an

IPad pro you're buying something for productivity it's not a passive device it's not like the $300 version of the iPad you might buy if you're just an average consumer and when you get the magic keyboard you start to see how this thing could be a laptop replacement it looks beautiful it types wonderfully and you can completely adjust the angle of the screen to something that's actually usable I mean that part's great but I'm painted into a corner by Apple here's the thing Apple is the only one that currently allows themselves to use the 3-pin connector in the back to power a

Keyboard they don't allow that for anything else so you have to get Bluetooth keyboards ironically not having to charge those Bluetooth keyboards very often actually becomes a problem because you're not used to actually charging them you might forget that you even have to one day when you turn it on and the keyboard doesn't work when you need to type something really important you're gonna wish you got the Apple version an apple does is pretty frequently they give you a terrible version of something that you don't really want but it's the only mildly

Affordable version and then they give you the Ferrari which is ridiculously overpriced but when you get it actually is pretty nice but none of that makes a difference because I bought it I love it I'm gonna have to keep it it's such a superior experience over the other version of that same product and it's not even perfect that's what kills me more there's no home button there's no customization that do you get with some of these other Bluetooth keyboards you just you just get a really nice keyboard case for three hundred and

Fifty dollars which you can buy an entire other iPad with I know listen I get it I didn't have to buy it it's fine I could have used the mashed-potato keyboard and that would have been okay but I didn't spend all that money for okay it's my editing machine it needs to work like a laptop no no no one's gonna give me any sympathy and here's the thing if you have the disposable income and an iPad Pro it's a pretty darn good product it's not perfect but it's pretty darn good check the link in the description you can purchase one

Yourself you're probably gonna like it and here's the other thing the iPad air which came out not too long ago is actually a pretty good replacement for a laptop did a video about it a while back it's right here make sure you check that out and I'll see you next time peace and love
