iPad Pro's biggest advantage over Macs: Cellular connection

When Apple's iPad Pro models are released, claims about the potential and power of these devices are often met with skepticism in some circles. This skepticism stems from some limitations of the operating system used, iPadOS, rather than a questioning of the devices' capabilities. This may mean that the iPad is less capable than a Mac for some users.

However, when it comes to connectivity capacity, the iPad has an undeniable edge over Macs. Apple has offered a cellular connectivity option in iPad models since 2010, but Macs have never included the feature. This may make the iPad indispensable for those looking for a truly portable device that can be accessed from anywhere.

The impact of cellular connectivity on portability and the iPad Pro advantage

The lifestyle in metropolitan cities requires constantly being on the move and benefiting from outdoor spaces. Spending hours in parks, eating out and being able to easily reach various points of the city reveal the advantages that cellular connection offers for portable devices. In this context, the iPad's cellular feature offers users freedom and flexibility.

For many users, WiFi connection problems encountered when carrying devices such as MacBooks can significantly reduce productivity. The anxiety and discomfort caused by not being able to provide reliable internet access, especially in public areas, disappears with the constant connection opportunity of the iPad. This will be a huge relief, especially for professionals who need constant connectivity

iPad's cellular connectivity offers users a seamless connection experience like that of their iPhone. Even when there is no internet connection, keeping the device connected ensures that work continues without any interruption. This is an invaluable feature, especially for mobile workers.

It is still unclear when Apple will add cellular connectivity to the Mac series. Although Macs equipped with various Apple processors such as M1, M2 and M3 bring with them many innovations, there has been no concrete step in cellular connection so far. The issue of whether there is a technical obstacle regarding this issue or whether Apple has not received a request on this issue continues to create controversy.

Despite the thin structure of the new iPad Pro models, the integrated advanced technologies show that Apple may one day add cellular connectivity to the Mac series. This potential step would be a huge improvement, especially for users with constant connection requirements. Time will tell to what extent Apple's strategy in this direction will respond to the needs of users.
