iPad Pro (iOS) Annoyances
A bit of background context
I recently bought an iPad Pro. I’m not new to iOS since I’ve used an iPhone and owned an iPod touch at one point, but it’s been a really long time since I’ve used this ecosystem after being a long-time Android/MacOS/Linux user.
I just wanted a place to rant about the various annoyances I’ve experienced since buying the device.
(Spotlight Search) I use this the same way I use Alfred on the Mac – Cmd+Space –> then launch whatever icon pops up. The annoying bit? It takes a second for autocomplete suggestions to show up, and when it does it shifts down the app icons and it makes me misclick the icons to a search instead.
(YouTube) I have Premium, and it annoys me that I can’t use PiP on it, even though it works perfectly fine on Android. I used to joke around how Netflix refused to do that on older versions on Android when YouTube can, but now Netflix works and YouTube doesn’t.
(Split-screen) Hey, Google. Why can’t I use split-screen view on this app? Multitasking with email is a no-brainer. Completely forbidding its use on an iPad is unacceptable!
(Split-screen, 2) Same goes to Facebook. Messenger can do it, I think Facebook should too.
