Matt Birchler, after discussing how he uses macOS for his day job and the video editing for his YouTube channel:
Literally everything else I do, which admittedly is less intense “work”, happens on my iPad. Writing this post, reading the news, doing my email, doing freelance writing work, editing my photos in Lightroom, recording and editing audio, creating my newsletter, managing the tasks for my YouTube projects, watching YouTube videos, talking with friends, task management, and even coding changes to this very website all happen on the iPad.
I’m pretty much in the same boat. I primarily use macOS for my work at Automattic and have a few personal applications/tasks that I use my Mac Mini server for — Plex, Channels DVR, and long-term local photo backups, to name a few. But the vast majority of my computing takes place on iPad or iPhone.
And even the personal tasks I perform on the Mac, most of the time I’m using Screens on my iPad to access it.
The iPad can’t be the primary computing device for everyone, sure, but I think it can fill that role for far more people than not.
