  • How many iPad models are there and way
  • What about news reports that tablets are dead?
  • What’s next in tech? Is it worth learning iPad or should we wait for….?????
  • The book is relative to iOS 10 (released last fall). What does it have to offer?
  • How do you get used to the Apple Pencil?


The book is available now from your local bookseller or online as an iBook on iTunes or Amazon on Kindle or print.
