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!
