    Hello all. I've been away from Apple products for about 4yes now. Recently I've swapped my SP3 for the big IPP (it should come tomorrow). I was interested to get your advice on any things in particular I should look out for. What tips or suggestions (links please) or even apps would you recommend? FYI...I also have the keyboard and the pencil. So I plan to use it mainly for productivity but also consumption.

    Any yes I know how to use an ipad (had an ipad 2 or 3 years ago though I can't remember which).

    Since you'll primarily be using it for "productivity", download the same productivity apps you were using on your previous device. I have the 9.7" iPad Pro and I use the following apps with it:

    Evernote
    Dropbox
    Notability
    Slack
    IMore Forums
    Trellis
    Reeder
    Skype
    Yahoo Sports
    Microsoft Word
    iWorks
    Scannable
    B of A

    And others

    Welcome to iMore!

    My biggest recommendation for a Password Manager would be 1Password. Great password manager that can be synced with all devices.

    Definitely, get the 1Password app or any of the other password manager apps listed in the App Store.

    If you used your Surface Pen the Apple Pencil will take some time for you to accept. It is lackluster in every way. It's really long, no buttons for eraser, sometimes it has a slight lag and the charging system is moronic at best.

    It is true that the Apple Pencil is a different experience than a Surface Pro pen. Some of the shortcomings have been articulated. That said, the Apple Pencil lays down ink much better than the Surface Pro pen to me. I write better using the Apple Pencil than the Surface pro pen.

    Didn't you just answer your own question?

    Update. Used this thing for a couple of days but is not gonna work out. For me...it's not an ideal laptop replacement. Getting a SP4 instead. Great device for consumption though

    Best device hands down. I have a SP3 that does everything. No limits. An added perk if you're an artist Microsofts Surface Pen is worlds better than the Apple Pencil.
