I just know all he could ever do is whine about Samsung, Android, PC & Windows. Lol
I don't know about the complications because I'm a 1 iOS device guy.
There are iPhones, IPads, and a MacBook in the house but I currently only own the 9.7 Pro.
Only reason I have it instead of my ancient of days iPad Air is because my tech guy for hardware repairs is a slow stoner. I broke the screen, he replaced it in 4 days. The replacement had a large dead spot (most of the keyboard). He agreed to fix it, but then he literally went on vacation. Got it to him as soon as he got in. After another entire week waiting I said screw it, sold some stuff I didn't need, and bought a new one. He finally got it back earlier this week. My middle kid currently has it.
I did read where they switched the new MacBooks from magnet charge cord to a USB-c plug in. Seemed like a giant leap backwards. The cords will be cheaper to repair but MacBooks will now skitter across the floor like an idevice when you trip over said cord.
