iPad Microsoft  Office

Apple’s iPad is still the dominant tablet on the market, but it’s been facing some stiff competition from other products such as the Microsoft Surface Pro. The Surface Pro is certainly more powerful than the iPad, but it still seems to lack the appeal of Apple’s tablet. As powerful as the Surface Pro is, it is also much more expensive. It also has a less elegant design than the iPad Air, the display isn’t as sharp and vibrant and the speakers on the iPad are just a little more powerful. As much as the Microsoft faithful love their Surface Pros, the iPad just seems like the better machine overall.

 

There is only one area where the Microsoft Surface Pro outshines the iPad, and that’s in productivity. As a Microsoft product, the Surface Pro was always capable of running a version of Microsoft Office, which has been the most widely used software suite for years. The iPad didn’t have its own version of the iconic Office suite, and this has always held the tablet back in the eyes of many. However, that looks like it’s become a thing of the past, because Microsoft just released a version of Office designed for the iPad this past Thursday, ending what may have been the longest period of anticipation in the history of iPad apps.

 

If you’re familiar with the Microsoft Office suite (and who isn’t), you should know what to expect from the iPad version. It has almost all of the programs and features found in other recent versions, except everything seems to have been streamlined with the iPad’s operating system and display. As with other current versions of Office, all of your work is saved to the cloud-based Microsoft OneDrive storage account, which means that you will be able to easily access files using other devices. The one major downside to Microsoft Office for the iPad is that there is no option to print files directly from the device itself. On the other hand, accessing a Word document or spreadsheet created on your iPad with another machine capable of printing isn’t a difficult task.

 

Now that Microsoft Office is available for the iPad, perhaps now would be a good time to invest in a brand new iPad. Even if you already have a Microsoft Surface Pro, you can always sell it to iGotOffer when it comes time for a new tablet. iGotOffer offers free shipping and competitive prices for used or even broken devices, and it could be exactly what you need to help you afford a new iPad Air 2 or the iPad 6 when it comes out.

iPad Lifecycle

iPad Life Cycle

It sometimes seems like fans of the iPad are always looking forward to the next release of their favorite tablet, but a new study suggests that many iPad owners are more attached to their devices than many realized.

 

The study in question was performed by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, or CIRP. For the report, 2,000 U.S. customers who purchased an iPad, iPhone or Mac in 2013 were surveyed. It was suggested that while iPhone users tended to replace their devices with newer models every two years, the replacement cycle for the iPad is closer that of the Mac, which is usually replaced by a new model after two to four years. Some users may even be willing to hold on to their iPads for up to ten years, which is closer to the ownership span of a modern television.

 

Furthermore, the study suggested that iPad owners were willing to wait a week or more to replace a broken or stolen device, and that they were twice as likely to give their old iPads to friends and family members after they upgraded to a newer model.

 

Industry analysts are concerned that the relatively low replacement rate of the iPad could affect future sales as the tablet market becomes saturated. The concern is that iPad users will be more likely to hold onto their old iPads instead of buying new models and that new users will just receive hand-me-down iPads as gifts.

 

On the other hand, sales figures suggest that Apple has little to fear from declining sales. The iPad is still the highest selling tablet on the market today, with a record 26 million units sold in the first quarter of 2014.

 

Selling Your iPad

 

Although the iPad does have a great shelf life and will last you for years, there will still come a time when you may want a replacement. Whether you want to upgrade to the latest model as it comes out or you simply want to get rid of a broken device, consider selling it to iGotOffer. iGotOffer buys used or even broken Apple devices from anywhere in the United States, all while providing free shipping competitive prices.
