Do You Need An iPad If You Have An iPhone?
When iPads were first unveiled they were very much hailed as though they were the next big thing, as though they were going to do nothing short of completely altering the way we live our lives and transform everything we know about interfacing technology. And to be fair to them they largely have accomplished this to a degree, and certainly they brought about a new category of technology that has proved very lucrative for tech manufacturers. But then at the same time if you really think about it, all an iPad really is is a larger iPhone. If you don’t have an iPhone then a device like this can really help you to change the way you live your life by giving you access to 3G, to the amazing app store, to the GPS and more. But if you can already get all that on your iPhone, do you really need to fork out for another device? Here we will attempt to answer that question.
First of all it’s important to know precisely what the differences are between the two devices. The first and most obvious difference here then is the size, and there certainly is a marked difference between viewing a website on an iPhone screen and an iPad screen. If you find yourself regularly just browsing the web and checking Facebook on your iPhone but squinting at the screen, then you might want to consider supplementing it with an iPad.
At the same time though there is the option to view your iPhone on the big screen by plugging it into the TV, and while it won’t be as intuitive to use as the iPad, if it’s for showing slides of photos to friends or streaming YouTube videos then this can work just as well so is worth bearing in mind.
The other big difference between an iPad and an iPhone however is the sheer power. iPads of course are more powerful than iPhones and this means they will be better able to run the most high end games with the best graphics. Of course phones don’t really multitask in the same way that computers do though so this really will be the most notable difference when it comes to using your device and it’s not really going to impact the way you use your other apps or what else it’s capable of.
Some apps are no doubt better suited to the iPad than the iPhone however of course and really do need that extra screen real estate. If you’re currently on the fence then one thing worth noting is that any apps you buy on your iPhone or your iPad will be available on the other device too. In other words if you have spent money on a comic reader and lots of comics on your iPhone and you then buy an iPad, you will be able to sign in and still have access to the app and all the comics. This is good news as it means there is actually incentive to buy an iPad even if you already have a iPad.
