Apple has now published a new advertisement titled “What’s a computer” and in the video, the company insists that the iPad Pro is actually the modern definition of a computer. The video shows a fangirl, using iPad for literally everything.
She uses it to complete her homework in Microsoft Word, and also doodles on an image clicked with iPad’s camera. She even reads Wonder Woman comic book on her iPad Pro, while traveling. Her next-door neighbor sees her using the iPad, she asks the girl “What are you doing on your computer?” and the girl answers — “What’s a computer?”.
