What’s it like with multiple users on iPad Pro?
I’m thinking about switching my MBP for an iPad Pro. I’m not using the MBP for much aside from video streaming, music, light document use, torrents (I know I can’t do that on iOS) and general web browsing.
When discussing the upcoming purchase with my missus, she mentioned that the iMac has been sitting on the ground for two/three weeks since we rearranged the flat and there is no space for it to go anywhere currently. She’s thinking about selling it and we both use the iPad Pro. We both have iPhone 11 Pros.
I think that’s a great idea as the iMac is old and needs replacing however what is it like in practice with multiple users on an iOS device?
My primary concern is Gmail/Chrome, (Apple) Photos, Lightroom, Instagram, Spotify and Audible, we both have separate accounts for each, is it easy to switch between the two or is it a log out and log back in deal?
I can create a singular household account for Spotify, transfer playlists in and have that as a workaround so that should be okay but what about the rest? Can you have two users signed into Google services and switch easily like on the desktop? Does Audible allow for account switching without deleting downloaded audiobooks? Can you easily switch Apple accounts or does the 90 day limit still apply like iPhone’s used to have?
The end goal is to use the iPad as an automated home hub, so it’s imperative I make the right choice. Are we making the right choice, ditching the iMac and MBP for a singular iPad Pro? Is there anything else we need to think of first?
