Honestly, 64GB is a pain. Stop making any illusions about that this could be enough.
Apples incredible shitty IOS file managemant avoids to keep your files folder tight and clean.
I still couldn’t figure out how to synchronise the Nomad project folder only with any cloud or network drive easily automatically.
It’s a bit back to last millenium imho.
That said, you’ll fill your ipad with this and that quickly. A nomad project can become > 100MB easily and believe me, you really want to work incremental, means 5 -10 versions to go back inj serious cases. Sure, you can clean up. The files app does not have any of this IOS glory, so it’s no fun.
And you will use more apps! Procreate, Infinite Painter - they are recording timelapse videos while drawing, whch are stored on your harddrive as well. 27GB and 26 GB in my case. Nomad 25GB. You really want to edit videos on ipad, as it is fluent and easy. LumaFusion 3GB here.
You want to have a photoshop replacement with Affinity products. 4GB each. Affinity products are eating diskspace. I needed to reinstall after Photo took 40GB without any reason.
You will have Photos and Videos, for your renders, alphas and all different kind of try outs. 50GB here. And I wouldn’t say I mess that much, as I need to clean up time by time as my 256GB ist getting short.
Apple knows that, like any other brand robbing your money with insanly increased prices for more storage costing only a few bugs in real.
My experience, and I started with a 32GB ipad2, which was horrible disk space wise. Than 128GB better and now 256GB and I wouldn’t go below.
All external stuff is due to IOS fuck no real fun, forget it. I use WD Cloud, which is the best working, Icloud, Google Drive, Dropbox andFileBrowser app, which lets you access your PC Harddrives.
But I am missing USB on my old baby.
All this can be a bit different and better if you are in all mac world, like APple wants you to be.
If so, it would be interesting if ipad air can be used as a tablet for your mac as well, like the pro?
