Are you interested in working remotely from anywhere you’d like, you can now using new iPad Pro !
For many, this may sound like an ideal scenario, working remotely, wherever you are. You will of course need a job description which will fit within that scenario as well as good equipment to work on ! In most cases you can work remotely if you are a writer, blogger, video editor, YouTuber, IT consultant, salesman, web designer, web developer, programmer, journalist, business owner, teacher, entrepreneur etc. I’m sure there is many more which I cannot name right now.
So we have defined a job title which will allow us to work remotely. Now we need to think of our surrounding, would we work at home as our ideal place or perhaps coffee shop? Or maybe even in another country with palms and sun around you!
All of this is possible of course with the help of the right equipment. Many use laptops which till now has been really good as portable machines but thanks to Apple and their constant development of their range of tablets we now have a new generation of iPad Pro’s ! I have a pleasure to own latest 12.9” iPad Pro. Apple is offering only 1 year warranty on these machines but you can pick it up from let say John Lewis (same price anyway) and you will have 2 years warranty anyway which is a better deal than you will get at the Apple shop. I have also picked a screen protector glass as I don’t really want to scratch that over £1000 piece of advanced engineering and I went for the Apple smart keyboard which I must say is a little strange, does not have backlight but overall, after 2 weeks of using it every day, I started understanding it now. There is no many alternatives if you want something with high quality, Brydge – an American company recently introduced their Brydge keyboard which has a bluetooth connectivity, with battery which will hold the power even up to 1 year, backlight keyboard and lovely aluminium design. I’m thinking of getting one myself but I would rather test one out before spending another £150-£200 on a keyboard !
These iPads come with different colours – two to be exact (space grey and silver), they have two sizes available – 11” and 12.9”, they do have LTE option which will enable you to install your own sim card (on plan or PAYG) and enjoy internet regardless where you are. Storage size there are 64GB, 256GB, 512GB and massive 1TB option ! I went for 256GB as I like to have my PLEX and Netflix videos as well as some audiobooks downloaded and available when I’m on the plane, also being a storage specialist, I have constant connectivity to my Qnap NAS which allow me to access terabytes of data (and backup my iPad there as well.
There is tonnes of well made apps which can suit every professional person regardless of what your career is, battery will allow you to work up to 10 hours which also is very good! These devices just work and are absolutely fantastic to use. There is also an entertainment factor why iPads are so great, as mentioned before you can watch your favourite movies, listen to audiobooks, read actual books, talk with friends (even many at the same time !), as well as watch TV if you’d like. There are ways to watch UK television when you are out of country and this is pretty good.
If you are interested in dropping your current workflow and moving into iPad I will be happy to help you with this move, can hear you first and then advise what would be the right way to approach it, I will help you selecting the right applications, synchronising everything, moving your outlook .PST files into this environment or remotely helping you with everyday iPad problems you may have (until you know how to use it with confidence) ! Let’s make that big step towards future NOW.
All the best,
