I wish I could say that I haven't had to (practically) rewrite applications due to breaking framework changes, or that I hadn't had major refactor efforts due to some JavaScript framework that decided to completely break backward compatibility on the next release. Did we have to upgrade to the next major release? YES, because the older version no longer received security updates, and our company policy required us to stay up to date. I've felt this pain enough times to know that more often than not, sticking to the basics is often better than chasing the next shiny framework.

I have an iPad Air (gen 3), and it MOSTLY is used for consuming (i.e. Facebook, Reddit, Medium, and reading). Occaionally I'll edit a photo on there, and very rarely (if needed) I'll log into a remote server to do some administrative work or light code changes. If I could get my coding environment on an iPad, and my favorite photo culling/editing apps, I would use it a lot more.

It seems to me that Apple needs to just finally bridge the gap and turn the M1 iPad into a touch screen mac with detactable keyboard and get it over with already!
