While Apple was under his leadership, #Steve Jobs introduced the first iPad to the world, boldly proclaiming that it would become the #Mobile Computer of tomorrow. Fast forward to 2017, and this is now a reality.

After its official release on April 3, 2010, iPad took the world by storm selling 300,000 units. A month after, Apple had sold a million iPads. The company even passed the million mark in just 80 days registering 3 million unit sold. In total, the Cupertino-based company sold over 15 million units of the first-gen iPad prior to the launch of iPad 2.

This impressive sales record happened even before #Ipad Pro was at its best.

But Apple is committed to Jobs' promise: “The iPad will become the mobile computer of tomorrow.”

iPad Pro 2017: The new era

Tim Bajarin of PC Mag has been following iPad's development since it was launched back in 2010. Through the years, he maintained a close eye to every innovation the developers are putting in the iPad series. Amid all the updates, he still cannot see the vision of Apple's former CEO into fruition. He even cited his personal experience with the device to support his claim.

He shared that the nature of his job has a constant demand for travel. He depends mostly on his iPad and his 12-inch MacBook during his trips as his go-to-writing tools. Although he favors the portability of the iPad, he confessed that it has no match compared to MacBook capabilities which can be used to for complex document or work on large spreadsheets.

However, he noted that this dilemma is about to change when iOS 11 arrives this Fall.

The iOS 11 revolution: 3 game-changing features

According to Bajarin, iOS 11 will greatly impact the current work phase of content writers and travel bloggers. He noted three exceptional features that would make significant changes to iPad's future.

First is the Drag and Drop feature. This feature makes iPad Pro 2017 more competitive in the mobile computing device market. Secondly, iOS 11 brings the macOS’ file format across iPad devices. This means the stuff users input in their iOS-powered device will now be compatible with MacBooks and iMacs computers.

Lastly, the new mobile OS brings the Mac-like Dock to iPad Pro 2017 making it much easier to toggle in-between apps. These remarkable features from iOS 11 update would benefit users both for personal and business use.

What Steve Jobs once envisioned for the iPad is now becoming a reality. And it has been plausible thanks to the iOS 11 update.
