Suggested April 2024 Ipad Pro Unboxing And First Impressions

Today we’re taking a look at the iPad Pro. On the surface, it may look like a giant Netflix machine, but well… it kind of is. This is the biggest iPad ever without a doubt, that packs a 12.9-inch display and obviously has a much larger footprint when compared to the iPad Air 2, this is larger by 78 percent actually. But enough with the small talk, let’s take a look inside of the box..,

As far as specifications go, Apple’s iPad Pro is packing the A9X processor inside, with 4GB of RAM, and either 32GB or in my case 128GB of internal storage. As I mentioned, there’s a 12.9-inch display with a resolution of 2732 x 2048 which is good for 265ppi.

Check out our iPad Pro unboxing and impressions video below:

The display is pretty clean as well. It’s obviously not as pixel dense as some of the smartphones we look at, but it’s on point with a Retina MacBook Pro. The technology for the display makes it extremely power efficient as well, at least according to Apple. The display features a variable refresh rate that can detect when the content on it is static. From there is drops the refresh rate from 60 to 30 in order to save power.

Taking a look at design, this thing is massive. Like really big. Luckily, it’s not as thick as it is big. It comes in at just 6.9mm and weighs 1.57 pounds, which isn’t too bad at all. Along the bottom end, you’ll find a Lightning port for charging, and surprisingly here, Apple has implemented four side-firing speakers inside of the iPad Pro (2 on each end) for a rich multimedia experience.

On one side you’ll find the volume buttons and a couple of microphones, while the other is home to Apple’s new Smart Connector, which can be used for accessories like the new Smart Keyboard, which is actually not available to ship immediately at launch, but third-party manufacturers like Logitech have swooped in to save the day. And if you really want to be that guy, there’s an 8-megapixel camera on the backside, capable of up to 1080p video recording. Trust me though, you don’t want to be that guy. Also, around the front, there’s a 1.2-megapixel camera, making it great option for Skype and FaceTime calls.

So basically, when the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector makes contact with a supported accessory like Logitech’s CREATE keyboard case, it powers and charges the keyboard so you’ll never have to worry about that. Pretty neat feature in my opinion and also one of the things that makes the iPad Pro a bit different than the other models. And obviously because the iPad Pro is so large, a keyboard case like this will actually have full-size keys, which is miles better than typing on something cramped in a smaller form factor.

Apple also makes the iPad Pro useful for a wide variety of other people with Apple Pencil, and I’d love to share my experience about this with you, but unfortunately this too was not available to ship instantly at launch.

I think the iPad Pro is a nice idea overall, but the main issue here is that it runs iOS instead of something that may be a bit more useful to “professionals” like you know.. maybe OS X? The truth is, that even Microsoft’s Surface may appeal to anyone looking to get more out of productivity than iOS has to offer, but that doesn’t make this a bad product. Having laptop-like screen real estate in a tablet form-factor is a nice thing. Especially when paired with a full size keyboard. Drop in the rich multitasking found in iOS 9 and you’ve got something that can definitely appeal to a lot of people. And you know what? Sometimes folks just don’t want to deal with a desktop operating system.

For me, the iPad Pro feels pretty well-built and obviously the quality is on point with what you’d expect from Apple. That being said, it’ll take me some time to figure out whether or not this huge tablet is something I need in my life, but I’ll definitely give it a shot. What do you think about the iPad Pro? Did you pick one up?

Lava Iris Pro 30 Hands on Review, Benchmarks, Camera, India Price and Overview [Video]

Design and Build

So, how light does Lava Iris Pro 30 feel? The answer is extremely light. The phone is very comfortable to hold with a 4.7 inch display, light weight and 7.5 mm of sleekness. It is not the slimmest or lightest phone ever, but such phones are quite rare. The phone felt good in hand and optimum for single handed usage.


The display specs, as mentioned above, feature big names and fancy terms and the display is quite good but definitely not the best. Viewing angles are pretty good and well matched with the OGS display tech and 312 pixels per inches; we didn’t notice any pixilation in the display. The display was bright enough but nothing extra-ordinary there. The Content Adaptive backlight control worked quite accurately. The display enjoys gorilla glass protection and the complete lamination eliminates gap between display and glass.

Camera and Internal Storage

The primary camera has an 8 MP BSI sensor along with blue light filter and performs pretty well in full light condition. The camera module is similar in performance to what we have seen on most domestic manufacturer devices and staggers a bit in low light condition. The front 3 MP shooter is quite customary as well.

Processor and Battery

The processor employed is 1.2 GHz Quad core processor and since it’s a MediaTek processor, cores are most likely based on Cortex A7 architecture. The RAM backing up this processor is 1 GB which should be sufficient enough for smooth multi tasking. We didn’t notice any UI lag in our initial time with the device. We will be coming up with more performance details in our full review pretty soon. On the software front you will get Android 4.2 jelly bean which is upgradeable, that is sufficient to keep the ambers of hope for KitKat update burning. The Battery capacity is 2000 mAh and with Content Adaptive backlight control saving up to 30 percent of battery backup, we can expect this to last one day.

Initial Conclusion and Overview

The domestic manufacturer promised a premium built quality with Lava Iris Pro series and it has delivered on that count. The guts haven’t changed much from what we have seen earlier but the effort is commendable. Lava Iris Pro 30 is an attractive handset which feels good in hand and offers a high end display. We are excited to spend more time with the device and for future phones in the Iris Pro series as well.

Update: Meizu Mx4 Initial Hands, Video Unboxing And Impressions

Yesterday we witnessed a big change for Meizu as a company and the way they plan to move forward. In the past Meizu have traditionally been a maker of premium products at a premium price but yesterday we saw that Meizu can also produce high specification smartphones at more competitive pricing and they they are thinking bigger.

Along with the launch of the MX4, CEO Li Nan, also announced partnerships with a number of device makers bringing a low-cost, and attractive, inWatch to customers at a low-price, and mini WIFI router and even a quad-copter drone from manufacturer Ghost. Partnerships like this were unheard of with the old Meizu, but anything is possible now.

Meizu also decided to launch the MX4 pre-order both national and internationally at the same time. Again this is something we just don’t expect from a Chinese phone maker.

Meizu MX4 – A new Meizu from a new Meizu

Although the Meizu MX4 looks similar to the MX3 they are actually totally different products. The launch keynote mentioned a lot of facts and figures conveying just how much more powerful the new MX4 is over the previous MX3. Not only more powerful but thinner, a larger display, a new aircraft grade alloy body, better battery life and an all new Flyme experience.

The phones that Meizu allowed fans to test at the launch and those which were given to the press are pre-production sample models, so we can expect added enhancements and optimizations to Flyme 4.0 and possibly some slight changes to the overall build of the phone for the production model.

Meizu MX4 – Design and feel

A removable rear panel is made of plastic and has been finished to make the rear feel the same as the alloy sides. Its a soft to the touch feeling, but not like the ‘baby skin’ option of the OnePlus One. To remove the rear you no longer need a small tool (as the MX3), you simply have a recess where a fingernail can pop in to lever the panel off. In our samples the rear is quite a loose fit, and although we don’t expect it to come off easily by mistake, a tighter fit would be preferred.

On the inside of the MX4 with the cover off we can see the non removable 3100mAh battery and single SIM slot. MX3 owners will be familiar with this set up. The sample 32GB version we have has no NFC and it would appear that the production version may also lack this feature too.

Gizchina News of the week

The sides of the phone house the physical buttons in just the same places as the MX3 (so home button at the top and volume rocker on the left). The sandblasted finish is broken in to sections with darker grey bars of colour which I believe are more for decoration than function. As the alloy moves up towards the screen a chamfered edges has been machined in to it and polished to give a nice bright highlight to contrast with the 5.36-inch display.

A Corning Goriilla Glass 3 panel takes up the entire front with a screen ratio of 15:9. So again the Meizu is a little wider but shorter than most other similar size phones, but due the the narrow 2.6mm bezels manages to be a pretty compacted device.

Meizu’s trademark ‘halo’ button is still present on the MX4 and above the FHD display is a front facing 2 mega-pixel camera, speaker and proximity sensor.

All in the Meizu MX4 in black is a very stylish piece of kit. The mix of glass, polished alloy, sandblasted alloy and quality plastic all make for a very understand but purposeful device. Even with the larger 5.3-inch display, the MX4 still manages to feel only slightly larger than the previous Meizu MX3 with 5.1-inch panel, and I barely feel the different between the 5.2-inch Vivo Xshot and the MX4, except where it comes to viewing, then the Meizu wins hands down.

Meizu MX4 photos Meizu MX4 – Performance

Part of the fast fluid feel is down to the new Flyme 4.0 ROM, but that hardware really comes in to it’s own when gaming. I have been playing Dead Trigger on the MX4 and it is extremely responsive fast and smooth. Gaming is also where the 15:9 screen ratio comes in handy, I feel I’ll be doing a log more gaming now I have a Meizu again.

Flyme 4.0

As impressive as the phone build and hardware it is up to the ROM to transform that in to a great user experience, and Flyme 4.0 has done this. Flyme 4.0 looks cleaner and simpler than 3.0, but some aspects such as the menu layouts etc remain unchanged.

Most of the more impressive features of Flyme 4.0 are aimed at Chinese audiences such as cooperation with local cloud storage companies to offer Flyme users 40 TB of free online storage, or access to movies and music. There is also a SIRI style personal voice assistant, but appears to only support Chinese (at least on our preproduction sample anyway).

Meizu do seem to have listened to fan input though. The notification bar now extends all the way down the screen and each notification can be expanded individually, The weather app has some really nice weather animations.

A new camera app and user interface has been added to Flyme. Swiping from left to right changes the shooting and recording to how you like, and then individual adjustment in each setting allow you to change things further.

While writing this Meizu have actually sent an updated ROM to us so I’ll install this and use the newer rom for the full review.

Meizu MX4 – the other parts

Battery life, GPS and camera will be put through their paces over the next few days so keep an eye out for those updates. I will also upload some comparison videos of the MX4 along some of it’s rival devices soon too.

Meizu MX4 hands on and unboxing video

So far what do you think of the Meizu MX4? could this be a phone you would consider buying? The Meizu MX4 is available for preorder internationally through the official chúng tôi website.

Iphone Xs Max: 7 First Impressions After A Week With Apple’s 6.5

Last year was one of the most revolutionary years ever for the iPhone. With the iPhone X, Apple ushered in a new era of design and ushered out what were once trademark features of the iPhone. Apple traded Touch ID for Face ID, it transitioned from the Home button to a complete gesture system. An OLED display replaced the iconic top and bottom bezels. This year brings the iPhone XS Max.

For me, the transition to the iPhone X was nothing short of a success. As I detailed last year here at 9to5Mac, I was wildly impressed with the iPhone X from the get-go. The one qualm I had was its size; as a long-time ‘Plus’ model user, the iPhone X was a bit of a downgrade in terms of screen size, even though it technically touted a larger 5.8-inch display.

This year, Apple has expanded the iPhone X design into a new form-factor: the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max. Read on for my initial 1 week iPhone XS Max impressions.


Just a few weeks ago, I wrote that while this year is an ’S’ year for the iPhone in general, the iPhone XS Max is far more than that. It introduces a brand new, larger form factor to the iPhone X design, and it does so while actually making it smaller than previous ‘Plus’ size iPhones.

The iPhone XS Max measures in at 157.5mm x 77.4mm x 7.7mm and weighs 208 grams. This compares to the iPhone 8 Plus at 158.4mm x 78.1mm x 7.5mm thick and 202 grams. This means the iPhone XS Max, despite packing a larger 6.5-inch display, is both narrower and shorter than the iPhone 8 Plus.

One thing that I was worried about was the transitional period from the 5.8-inch display to the 6.5-inch display. After just a week, however, I’ve adjusted perfectly. The biggest issue I had was getting a feeling for the keyboard size, but other than that it was a rather seamless adjustment.

As for one-handed use, it’s certainly possible if your hands are bigger than average, but for most people, two-handed use is going to the primary method of input here. Accessing Control Center and Notification Center isn’t the easiest thing to do, but that’s a worthy tradeoff of the added screen real estate in my opinion. Further, I didn’t find one-handed use much better on the iPhone X, either.

One thing I’ve found with the iPhone XS Max, however, is that the larger size makes going case-less a bit harder. I’m the type of person who regularly switches from a case to no case on a weekly basis, but this time around I see myself being much more reliant on a case. I think it might be because the iPhone XS Max certainly feels top-heavy, but it’s just a bit awkward to use without a case.

The best iPhone XS Max cases:


This will change as time progresses and as more developers update their applications with the iPhone XS Max in mind, but for now it’s a minor annoyance. As you can see in the image above, neither Facebook nor Instagram scale properly on the iPhone XS Max display, whereas the Apple News app does.

With the larger display, there’s a lot of potential for more information-dense designs, and hopefully that’s a trend we see.


My colleagues Zac Hall and Michael Steeber have already offered stunning sample images from the iPhone XS Max, but I still think it’s worth noting, again, just how great of an upgrade it is from the iPhone X.

The standout feature to me is support for depth control. Being able to take a Portrait Mode image and know I’ll be able to adjust the depth after the fact gives me far more peace of mind when using the feature than in the past. Additionally, live preview support for depth control – currently available in the iOS 12.1 beta – makes things even better.

For more sample images from the iPhone XS, I highly encourage you to take a look at the coverage below:


There’s been a lot of discussion surrounding the battery life on the iPhone XS Max. While Apple says the device should get roughly 90 minutes longer life than the iPhone X, early tests have shown that’s not necessarily the case.

In my use, battery life on the iPhone XS Max has been comparable to the iPhone X. By that I mean it hasn’t been significantly worse, nor has it been significantly better. I can make it through a day of moderate to heavy use, but it’s still impossible to stretch a single charge through two days.

And that’s probably why Apple doesn’t spend too much time talking about battery life. Unless their iPhone can go two full days on a single charge without worry, many users are going to charge every night, even if they could theoretically stretch it through a day and a half.

Ultimately, I really would like to see Apple double down iPhone battery life, but for now, we’ll have to settle with charging every night.

One more thing here – it’s time for Apple to ditch the 5W charger. Every other flagship smartphone includes a USB-C fast charger. It’s not a good look for Apple to ship a 5W USB-A charger with a $1000+ phone. That’s all.

Face ID

On stage at its September event, Apple touted that Face ID would be faster on the iPhone XS than it was on the iPhone X. After a week with the iPhone XS Max, I haven’t noticed any speed improvements – but that’s due to the fact that my iPhone X had spent almost a year learning my face, so now the iPhone XS has to do the same thing.

More generally, however, Face ID was fantastic on the iPhone X and it remains fantastic on the iPhone XS Max. While I was a bit worried that the larger form factor would make finding the right Face ID a bit awkward, that’s absolutely not the case.

One thing I still do, though, is keep the “Require Attention” setting disabled for Face ID. I know this compromises the security to a certain degree, but the added flexibility is worth it, I think.

I kind of wish I would have gone gold…

I’ve always chosen space gray (or that year’s equivalent) as my iPhone color, and this year is no different. This time, though, I have to admit I’m having a bit of gold envy. I was hesitant to pre-order the color not having seen it in person, but now that I’ve seen it in the flesh at the Apple store, it is a very nice color.

I still think the white iPhone XS is not quite right. The white just doesn’t pop like previous white iPhones have – specifically the iPhone 4. The iPhone XS white just looks rather murky and cloudy, I think. Meanwhile, despite Apple’s tendency to vary its space gray color shade, the space gray iPhone XS is exactly the same shade as the iPhone X.

It’s easier than ever to upgrade every year

One thing Apple is doing an excellent job of is making it easier and easier to upgrade to a new iPhone every year. With its own iPhone Upgrade Program, and carriers offering their own smartphone ‘leasing’ options, there are sometimes more incentives to upgrade than there are to not.

Personally, this is my first year on the iPhone Upgrade Program after previously using AT&T Next. The inclusion of AppleCare+, and the ease of upgrading through the Apple Store app and receiving a trade-in kit every year makes it almost a no-brainer for people who know they’re going to upgrade each year.

Further, the process of setting up a new iPhone continues to get drastically easier. This year, I was able to restore my iPhone XS Max from my iPhone X backup and instantly re-pair my Apple Watch in under 10 minutes. It used to be that this process was so cumbersome I’d almost always set up my iPhone as new every year.

As iPhone growth slows, Apple is doing everything it can to make it easier to upgrade every year. And it’s doing a darn good job at it.


When it comes right down to it, the iPhone XS Max is nearly the perfect phone for me. I wrote last year that the iPhone X was nearly perfect, but that I missed the larger screen of a ‘Plus’ phone.

The question of upgrading from the iPhone X is a tricky one. If you want the larger 6.5-inch display, then, by all means, the iPhone XS Max is worth it. If you’d be upgrading from the iPhone X to the standard iPhone XS, that’s a bit harder to justify. There’s also the question of how the iPhone XR fits into the equation. The more we learn about it, the more enticing of a device it looks.

Pixel 3A First Impressions: A Likeable Smartphone With A Baffling Price Tag

Google I/O 2023 is currently underway and the biggest announcement of the developer conference, apart from Android Q, is finally out of the way. The highly-anticipated mid-range smartphones from Google, the Pixel 3a and 3a XL, have been officially launched during the keynote announcement and they’re exactly what we expected them to be. Google was kind enough to loan us the Clearly White variant of the smaller Pixel 3a and I’ve been playing around with it for the past couple of days. This is my first time using a Snapdragon 670 chipset-powered smartphone, so I was skeptical of the performance on the daily but you’ll soon know how it turned out to be. The cameras were another major area which I wanted to focus on while using the device to see if they’re on par with the flagship Pixels. So, here’s my first impression of what could be the saving grace for Google’s hardware division:

Pixel 3a: Specifications

Starting off, let’s first take a quick look at the key specifications of the Pixel 3a and then move forward with talking about our initial impressions of this mid-range smartphone.

Dimensions151.3 x 70.1 x 8.2 mm

Weight147 grams

Display5.6-inch FHD+ (2220 x 1080) gOLED

ProcessorSnapdragon 670



Rear Camera12.2MP (f/1.8) Dual-Pixel Sony IMX363

Front Camera8MP (f/2.0)

Operating SystemAndroid 9 Pie

ConnectivityWi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, Google Cast, USB-C

SensorsRear-mounted fingerprint sensor, Active Edge, Proximity, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, Gyrometer, Magnetometer, Barometer, Android Sensor Hub


ColorsJust Black, Clearly White

Pixel 3a: Design & Build

Starting off with the design, I know what you’re all thinking, it looks exactly like the smaller Pixel 3. It has the same two-tone finish on the back, the same bezel-full front, and the same color variants as well, but there are a few key differences. First of all, the Pixel 3a doesn’t boast a glass design and that’s understandable. Instead, Google has used polycarbonate, which is basically plastic, and the smartphone does not seem cheap to the touch. The rear panel is quite similar to the Pixel 3. This too has the matte finish on the bottom half of the back, which feels great and a glossy finish on the upper half.

To be honest, this definitely does not seem like a cheap phone and is pretty appealing

Pixel 3a: Display

The Pixel 3a comes with a 5.6-inch OLED display and it’s said to be a gOLED display, which the time of writing this story is not known to be any different than any other OLED displays available on the market, but I believe it should be Google’s fancy term for some technology that they’ve baked in to finally fix their display performance. The gOLED display on board delivers punchy colors, beautiful blacks, and yes, you get the always-on display feature, which I really like, in tow as well. In my brief usage, I feel that the OLED display on Pixel 3a is better than the display on the Pixel 3 XL. Not only are the colors better, but the viewing angles on the Pixel 3a’s display are also way better too. I mean, these photos look almost the same, colorwise, on both the phones, but if I slightly tilt both the phones, see how the color just dulls away on the Pixel 3 XL’s display. So, I guess, gOLED does bring a difference to the Pixel 3a lineup and you can check it out in our video attached towards the end.

Pixel 3a: Performance

Though the design here is pretty similar to the Pixel 3, the major difference between the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3 is the chipset on board. Pixel 3a is powered by the Snapdragon 670 SoC with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage (same are the specs of Pixel 3a XL, which was earlier rumored to feature the Snapdragon 710 chipset). Yes, pretty modest specs for a Pixel phone, but it is what it is, and well, it shows in the benchmark figures. The Snapdragon 670 is obviously no match to the flagship chipsets, and it lags behind even the Snapdragon 675 and Snapdragon 710 chipsets, which have been employed in more budget-friendly phones like the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the Realme 3 Pro. So yeah, it’s not the most powerful processor, but when it comes to real-world usage, I have no major qualms in the user experience department. The multi-tasking has been pretty decent, memory management has been okay too in my brief time, but few minor frame drops in UI here and there makes me a little wary of whether the device would be able to stand the test of time. As for gaming, PUBG Mobile by default runs on high graphics setting, which is definitely great and I like the fact that the gameplay on high settings has been good enough. It’s definitely playable, as well as quite enjoyable, at high settings. Look, the Pixel 3a won’t win the numbers game. There are smartphones such as the Poco F1, the Redmi Note 7 Pro, and the Realme 3 Pro, which have more powerful chipsets that boast of higher benchmark scores, but we all know what the Pixel 3a is offering: the Pixel software experience and the Pixel cameras. We’re going to focus on these two next.

Pixel 3a: User Experience

The Pixel 3a comes with Android 9 Pie on board and it’s the Pixel experience we all love. There’s the Pixel launcher, which is nice and clean. There’s the gesture navigation from Android Pie, which grows on you once you start using it regularly. There are other Android Pie features like Adaptive Battery, Digital Wellbeing, and more on board as well. In addition, there are obviously some Pixel-exclusive features too, like the Active Edge, which lets you squeeze the phone to launch Google Assistant, an unlimited high-quality storage option in Google Photos, Now Playing (which displays songs playing around you right on the lock screen), and more, but the problem is that the more exciting features such as call screening, Google Maps AR, they are all not available in India. Putting that aside, the software experience here is great and I prefer it because I’m a sucker for new features. Pixel 3a will be among the first phones to get the latest and greatest of Google features, the latest Android Q updates and security patches too, so that’s something noteworthy. Not a whole lot of phone makers can boast of the same.

Pixel 3a: Flagship-worthy Cameras

Moving on, the one thing that I like the most about the Pixel 3a is that it doesn’t skip on camera features. It has all the camera features you see on the flagship Pixel series. Now, before I talk about them, let me get the specs out of the way. The Pixel 3a has a 12.2MP (f/1.8) rear camera, and it’s the same Sony IMX 363 sensor that the Pixel 3 features. There’s no dual selfie lenses onboard here but instead, a single 8MP (f/2.0) sensor in tow. As I said, Pixel 3a has all the goodness of the Pixel 3’s camera app too, but there’s a new Time Lapse feature, which will go live soon and lets you capture some beautiful timelapse videos. There are also other camera features, like Night Sight, so you can take well-lit photos in the dark. There’s Photobooth that lets you take photos with a smile or a kiss. Playground, where you can try out various Playmojis, like the Avengers Playmojis. Yeah, it’s all pretty cool. But, I know what you’re wondering- how is the camera performance of the Pixel 3a? Well, in short, it’s fantastic. Photos from the Pixel 3a are sharp and detailed, be it in good or low-light conditions. Even the portrait mode photos are brilliant. Well, let me just put it this way as it would be simpler. Pixel 3a brings the same great camera performance from the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. Yes, check out these camera samples:

Best Drag And Drop Apps For Ipad Pro In 2023

Apple has termed iOS 14 as a monumental step for the iPad. And looking at what the ecosystem has brought to the most popular tablet, we can say that the claim does have notable substance. “Drag and Drop” is probably the most sought-after feature of iOS 14 for iPad. Considering its significance in boosting your user-experience, it’s worth compiling the best drag and drop apps for the iPad.

1. Google Docs

Google Docs is great for creating and editing documents. You can also collaborate with others on documents. The app has updated to support the drag-and-drop feature. Now, it lets you drag and drop text into a document from other compatible apps. The D&D functionality works fairly well. When you drag any rich text into Docs, it is reformatted as simple text. Hence, you will need to reformat it again.

Beyond drag and drop, the app works even offline; allowing you to work without any interference. What’s more, Google Docs support multiple languages including English, Afrikaans, Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Basque, Belarusian, Bengali, Bulgarian, Cambodian, Catalan, Chinese, etc.

2. Bear

Bear is a fine writing app that allows you to create notes, prose, code and even sketches your imagination. You can drag text, files, images in and out of the app. Using the hashtag, you will smartly organize your notes. It has a focus mode to let you carry out y our work without any disturbance.

There are plenty of markup options that help you enhance your writing. Better still; you get the option to export your file in multiple formats including HTML, PDF, DOCX, MD, JPG, etc.

3. Spark

Readdle’s Spark is smartest email app for iOS. With the support of Drag and Drop feature, it lets you drag text, images, links, etc. from other apps into the message. You can also drag files, documents photos to easily attach them to an email.

Additionally, you can also drag PDF attachments to edit them. There is also an option to drag text from someone else’ email into another app.

4. 1Password

1Password is undoubtedly the best password manager for iOS. The app has become more functional with the latest update. Now, it lets you drag and drop usernames and passwords from 1Password to other app or webpage.

The app allows you to keep your items in several different categories such as logins, credit cards, addresses, notes, bank accounts, etc. You get the option to create multiple vaults to keep your passwords more securely. Besides, the password manager also supports multitasking features like Split View and Slide Over to let you enhance your productivity.

5. Things 3

If you are looking for a more practical app to let you take complete control of your tasks, go for Things 3. Of course, the task manager is pricey, but it does a great job of letting you deal with plenty of tasks with complete peace of mind. Using drag and drop, you will be able to quickly create a more efficient project for each of goals.

You can keep a tab on your calendar events as well as to-dos and plan your time accordingly. Moreover, the app also lets you customize your workflow to suit your needs better.

Very few note-taking apps are as optimized for iPad as GoodNotes 5. Aside from fully supporting the Apple Pencil, the app is also designed to get along smoothly with all the multitasking features including the “Dark and Drop”. So, you can drag and drop a note from one folder to the other or from one note to the other to keep everything in line with your needs. 

Another notable feature of GoodNotes is the support for Sidecar that lets you use your iPad as the second screen of your Mac. Save it for the times when you want to double down on productivity by employing the powers of both macOS and iPadOS. Apart from being a handy note-taking app, it also does an efficient job as a PDF editor so that you can manage your PDF files with ease.

7. Evernote

Simply put, Evernote is excellent for taking quick notes and creating to-do lists. The app also lets you save things while browsing the web to read or view later.

As for drag and drop functionality, the app has completely embraced this feature; allowing you to drag and drop contents seamlessly. For instance, you can drag the notes into other apps and also easily move contents from other apps to your notes.

Apart from this handy feature, the app also allows you to create agenda, memos and impressive presentations. Even better, you can set custom reminders to never miss out any important tasks.

8. Airmail

Airmail is a feature-rich mail client, and I have always enjoyed using it. With the support of iOS 11’s Drag and Drag feature, it’s become more productive. You can drag multiple files to attach to your email. It lets you drag items in and out of the app with ease.

Additionally, the app allows you to edit messages in bulk. It works with Gmail, Exchange EWS, IMAP, and POP3. Moreover, it has the support of as many as 19 languages including English, Arabic, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, etc.

9. Zipped

What makes “Zipped” such an efficient app is the ability to make the process of zipping and unzipping tasks hassle-free. Using D&D, you can make the process incredibly simple. Head over to this guide to zipping/unzip files on your iOS device.

10. 1Writer

“1Writer” is what you’d want to make writing and text editing a more simplified and straightforward task on your iPad. With the use of the D&D feature, you can easily move images, links and more to enrich your article.

The app boasts 20 different fonts to let you personalize the text. There is also a dark theme to make it more convenient for you to read and write at night. With the in-app browser, you can search for anything you want without having to leave the app.

Furthermore, this writing app is compatible with several popular third-party apps including Drafts, Terminology, Day One, Editorial, Phraseology, Byword, Ulysses, Tumblr, Chrome, Gmail, Launch Center Pro, Tweetbot, Dispatch, Due, Fantastical, Clear, OmniFocus, Things, 2Do, etc.

That’s all!
