And sorry, but a Plus sized iPhone is quite inferior to an iPad for real reading. The 7 Plus screen is much nicer than the iPhone 7 but it’s not two-hours-of-reading nice. The advantages of the iPad over the iPhone Plus are twofold. You can both make the text larger so it’s easier to read or you can adjust the settings so that you can fit more on the screen and scroll less.
For me, it’s much more convenient to add a keyboard to my iPad when I need one then it is to deal with a Mac. Plus, I can choose the keyboard that fits what I’m doing. I hate all laptop keyboards that don’t have a number keypad. I don’t need the Macs greater processor power or automation features.
Whenever someone asks me whether they should buy an iPad or a Mac for their main device I always ask the same question. What do you do more? Reading or Typing? If the answer is reading than I recommend an iPad.
