Music Making on iOS devices has become huge - another proof that the iPad is a great content creation device

What many don't know is that this website was earlier one of the biggest sites about Making Music with computers1, and that I have done quite a few music tracks myself during the years. I even got some of my music released on a record label once ;)

A lot has happened since then, and this site is now about tech and a lot about Apple and the iOS devices.

I have still a passion for content creation though, but nowadays the passion for that is on iOS devices instead, and specifically on the iPad. And I have lately been more and more interested in starting to create music again (mainly for music in my YouTube videos), but this time on my iPad only.

I often push for iOS content creators and will keep doing that, and if I start creating music on my iPad too and not only videos and blog posts, then I will of course post about that and probably make videos about it too. I will probably wait for the next iPad Air so that I can buy a 64GB or 128GB model before I start making music on it though.

Below you can see a video on how big the music making scene on iOS has become. This is a huge advantage iOS has over Android. A lot of professional companies are making professional Apps for iOS to make it possible to use iOS devices to create content with.

It doesn't matter if the iPhone 6 will cannibalize the iPad

The 5.5-Inch iPhone 6 Will 'Cannibalize The iPad, Which Is A Good Thing' | Business Insider

If the iPhone 6 eats the sales 4 million iPads, it actually adds $1.2 billion to Apple’s sales and $780 million in gross profits.

So, while the iPad business is slowing, and shows no signs of getting better, it’s not that big a problem for Apple. The iPhone is going to pick up the slack.

Interesting thoughts. Apple will actually earn more money selling the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 than they do selling iPads. So it doesn't matter if the larger iPhone will cannibalize the iPad market. Not for Apple at least.

Personally it get harder and harder for me to decide which iPhone 6 I will buy. I have decided to buy the new updated iPad Air, but not yet if I should buy the 4.7-inch or the 5.5-inch iPhone… Decisions decisions :)
