For the past month or so, I’ve been talking on AppStories and Connected about my new desk setup, which involves an iPad Pro and Apple Studio Display. Here’s a quick recap for those who don’t listen to the shows and may be new to this whole saga:
After buying a house earlier this year, I was convinced I wanted to find a monitor for my new office that would serve both as a work and gaming monitor. My original plan was to set up my gaming PC in the office, have a single monitor for both work and play, and switch a Thunderbolt cable between the PC, iPad Pro, and MacBook Pro, depending on what I wanted to do. Over the past few weeks, however, I’ve realized that I prefer playing videogames on my new couch with a 55" (now 65") OLED TV (an LG C2), which in turn helped me understand that I didn’t need a gaming monitor for my office after all. I wanted a display that would look nice and easily connect to either the Mac and iPad with as few complications as possible. It became clear very quickly that what I wanted was a Studio Display, so I purchased one.
