For the past 7 years, the iPad has been my main computer.

In this story, I share everything I've learned, describe my entire iPad setup, and collect my wishes for iOS 13 and the future of iPad.

I've poured months of work into this.

This story is, by far, the most complete account of all my work on iPad through the years.

From file management and multitasking to Shortcuts and podcasting, if you want to know how I work on iPad Pro, this story is for you.

It's my iPad Manifesto.

Of course, there are also extras!

The story is available as an eBook exclusively for @ClubMacStories members as a free download. A special Making Of is also coming this week.

And we recorded a special episode of @AppStoriesNet about it.

Details: macstories.net/news/beyond-th…
Among the topics covered:

- iPad file management with open-in-place and bookmarks
- My @iAWriter and @WorkingCopyApp setup
- Automation with Shortcuts VS @ScriptableApp (with examples!)
- My review of the @BrydgeTech keyboard and @Logitech Slim Folio Pro
- Lots, lots more 😄
If you're just looking for my iOS 13 wishes/future of iPad thoughts:

The opening 3D animation – as well as all the chapter images – were created by the amazing @bkbkbk.

Details about his setup (Cinema 4D, plus a farm of Macs/PCs for rendering) coming later this week for @ClubMacStories members. It's wild.
Writing this story was a labor of love. I wanted to offer one final update before WWDC and tell my whole iPad story so far.

I hope you'll enjoy it. Now I can't wait to see what's next for iOS 13.

Fun fact from today's iPad story: @bkbkbk and I decided to use HEVC/H265 for video compression for the intro animation. Thanks to that, we were able to keep the video file < 5 MB and use a 10k bitrate version too.
