Remember that having an iPhone, iPad and laptop for most people is overkill. 
Sure, it is nice to have all this stuff, but I don’t see any need for an iPad 
in my life, I use my iPhone all the time and the argument that I want phone 
calls interrupting me or that I want to save my iPhone battery to me at least 
don’t make sense. If I am listening to an audio book on an iPad and I get a 
phone call I want to take it interrupts me anyways and in fact if I am 
listening on the iPad I first have to pause the iPad whereas on my iPhone 
whatever is playing pauses automatically when the phone rings and resumes again 
when I’m done. As for battery I just get a new one put in should it gert to the 
point where it doesn’t hold it’s charge any more, it’s a lot cheaper than 
spending $500 or more on an Ipad. If I am travelling there isn’t that much I 
can’t do on my iPhone compared to an iPad. I can see that if you use braille 
input the large iPad might be good, but if I really want to be able to type a 
lot I can just bring a bluetooth keyboard and use my iPhone. Some people also 
make the point about sound quality being bertter on an iPad and that is 
probably true due to it’s larger speakers which can be further apart, but you 
can just as easily use a bluetooth speaker if you want good sound quality. This 
has the added benefit that you can get one that is waterproof so if like me you 
listen to a lot of audio books you can bring it into the shower or outside etc. 
I am doing a fair bit of work outside right now getting my garden and yard into 
shape after a long and very snowy winter and I also do some woodworking either 
in my shop downstairs or outside and I can just have my iPhone in a safe spot 
in my belt case or put somewhere nearby and use my very tough dust and 
waterproof bluetooth speaker. If I am using any woodworking power tools which 
are noisy I wear ear protection anyways and I have a set of ear protection 
which have bluetooth as wel as a built-in FM radio so I can listen to the radio 
or my book or music on my iPhone. If you buy an iPad it’s another expensive 
device which you have to maintain and upgrade every 3 to 5 years, it won’t 
replace your iPhone so now you have to maintain and upgrade two devices. I also 
have an Apple Watch which I like because of the fitness/health application and 
to me that is more useful than an iPad and as it’s a piece of technology which 
also has a finite time before it needs to be upgraded, if you now have an 
iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch then things are starting to get really expensive.

Hi,

In what situations does an IPad have advantages over an IPone or a laptop 
computer?

Thanks.
