iPad Pro Now Available

The new iPad Pro is out! You can get yours in the Apple Store now starting at $799.

So, what's the big deal? The new iPad Pro has a 78% larger screen than the iPad Air to work on apps side-by-side (instead of one at a time) and to watch movies on an even bigger screen. It also has two new accessories: Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.

The Smart Keyboard charges through your iPad Pro through a special port and is made to fit perfectly. You no longer have to get a third party keyboard and connect with Bluetooth (which sometimes doesn't work). It's sleek, thin, and Apple designed.

But the Pencil is probably the coolest part of the new iPad Pro. With the Pencil you can now write and illustrate on your iPad Pro just as though it was a piece of paper. It is not like previous styli that are thick and imprecise; it is as natural as using a real pen and the results on screen are indiscernible from real life penmanship. While you're drawing with the Pencil, iPad Pro knows to not count your hand or palm as input so you can rest your hand on the display without worrying that you'll accidentally press any buttons.

Lastly, the iPad Pro is by far the fastest iPad you can buy. It is so fast it even beats out MacBooks in terms of performance so you are getting one of the best computers you can buy.

If you need help setting yours up or would like help learning the new features, contact JTec at (949) 466-8442 or joshua@jtec.io

    Ever since my mother won a computer at a company raffle when I was 6, I’ve been hooked. Nothing excites me more than new technology and I’m always the first to dissect and figure it out. From building my own PCs from parts at the LA Computer Fair in Pomona to my first PowerBook when I was 15, I’ve always loved computers. 

     My first job tutoring was for community service during high school. I first assisted and then became a teacher at a beginners computer course for the elderly and those with English as a second language. There I taught the basics of computing (using a mouse, file systems, etc.) and went on to teach Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. I’ve managed a law firm’s computer network and integrated Macs into a predominantly PC environment. I’ve also held weekly classes for a retirement community focusing on doing more with their Macs. They learned things such as how to import and edit photos with iPhoto from a digital camera, how to set up Email, and much more. It was extremely fulfilling and I loved passing on my knowledge. 

     Now I work on-call and travel to client’s homes or businesses to “fix” their computers while teaching them how to fix it themselves in the future. I also will routinely take computers home to repair hardware issues such as broken screens or trackpads. I genuinely want you to learn how to make the most out of your technology and I always aim to make you self-sufficient.
