The iPad Pro equipped with the M1 chip finally went on sale, and I finally got the real machine. Unlike the situation everyone was optimistic about before the release, many 12.9-inch iPad Pros on the Internet have overturned, showing green edges and halos.
Fortunately, I bought the 11-inch version, and I have no worries about this.
Although my heart is bleeding when making the payment, it is really cool to use it with my hand. No matter the silky scrolling of the desktop when I swipe the screen with my finger, or the sharp picture and full color when I was watching movies, I feel that the iPad Pro is really awesome.
In a week of use, I clearly felt the iPad’s improvement in the quality of life. It can be moved to any corner at home. It can be used as the second screen of the computer when working. It is convenient to carry when going out and can replace a notebook to complete part of the work.
After purchasing the M1 iPad Pro, what accessories did I purchase? Let’s check it out!
As the screen is an expensive and fragile part of the iPad, a good protective film is necessary. There are many types and styles of iPad protective films on the market, and the quality is also uneven. I suggest choosing some well-known brand products, which are relatively safe.
I have pasted UGREEN’s high-toughness invisible-tempered film. In addition to being strong and explosion-proof, I also value the use of PET base material. The display after the film is the same as before the film, and there is no color difference.
I don’t have a hobby of painting or the need for handwritten notes. I heard that there is a kind of paper film that can simulate the touch of real paper. Friends who like to paint can choose this film.
As a “monster” with an 11-inch screen, bumps are inevitable in mobile use, and a protective case can effectively protect the iPad from scratches.
There are many protective cases on the market, so you don’t have to worry too much about it, just buy them according to your favorite style.
I hope it can complete part of the text input work for me, so I started with a magic keyboard with a protection function. The keyboard is connected to the iPad through metal contacts. After the magnetic connection is strong and stable, it will form a suitable viewing angle after opening, making typing and watching videos very comfortable.
The interface of the iPad Pro has been updated. The Lightning interface was first replaced by the USB-C interface. Now the USB-C interface is equipped with the Thunderbolt III protocol, making the interface performance of the M1 iPad Pro catch up with the MacBook.
With the help of a small docking station, functions such as video expansion and U disk hard disk reading can be easily realized.
I bought a direct plug-in docking station from UGREEN, which is small and exquisite, tightly connected and stable. The docking station has 1 3.5mm headphone jack, 2 USB3.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, and 1 PD charging port.
These interfaces have played a huge role in my life and work. If you want iPad Pro to be productive, then the docking station is one of the must-have choices.
When I have an iPhone, iPad, and MacBook at the same time, a very real problem arises. My socket is not enough. The three devices have three sets of chargers. I have a little obsessive-compulsive disorder. I don’t want to use them together. I compete with the chargers every day.
Later I discovered that there is a charger that can be compatible with multiple devices at the same time, a 100W GaN charger.
Having said that, I can’t hide my identity as a UGREEN fan. The first UGREEN product I have is the iPhone data cable. After changing three iPhones, the data cable can still be used, so I trust the UGREEN brand very much.
Therefore, I plan to purchase two 100W 4-port GaN chargers, one at home and one at the office, and one charger will solve the charging problem of three devices.
