There are new tutorial videos for iPad you’ll want to check out. Apps aren’t always used for their original purposes and Melissa finally finds an iPhone clip that hasn’t been murdered by the Arizona sun! Full show notes are on our website InTouchwithiOS.com

Dave’s iPad Pro 10.5 256 GB Recap: He was able to return his iPad and swap it out from a 64GB to 256GB as well as take advantage of the Beats promotion for Education. Previously he purchased a new MacBook Pro and they let him get the Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones for free. The Beats X bluetooth are free with iPad Pro, but he opted to go with the Powerbeats 3 earphones for $50 which is $150 the price. He also reviews the case he bought that holds Apple Pencil.
