Apple promotes the 6th-generation iPad with a trio of new ads
Apple could be facing new competition for its sixth-generation iPad as soon as the end of this week. Tomorrow, we could see Microsoft introduce a $400 tablet rumored to be named Surface Go that is expected to be powered by Windows 10 Pro with an Intel Pentium processor inside. The new slate, aimed at iPad users and consumers who normally would purchase an iOS tablet, could go on sale at the Microsoft Store as soon as this Friday.

Whether Apple has a mole in Redmond, an employee with psychic abilities, or just takes guesses, today it dropped three new iPad ads that will soon appear on your television. The first spot, "Organized Notes," shows how much more organized your classroom notes are using an iPad. The next ad, "Travel Simply," shows laptop users on an airplane that are not able to work without getting their device hit by the seat in front of them. Other laptop users have very limited room to work. But the passenger sporting an iPad has enough room to work and even type, with the optional Smart Keyboard case.

The third ad is titled "All Your Stuff" and shows various people packing for a trip. The first two are trying to jam in books that obviously won't fit. The third person owns an iPad and can replace all of those books packed by the others with the iOS powered tablet.

Check out all three ads, which you'll find directly below.

The same can be done with a Lenovo yoga for instance, or a Surface; not so much with the Mac.

right, this ad doesn't make the iPad stand out amongst it's competition. It's only showing us what we know tablets can do. Trust if anyone seen this ad, they would go out abd looknat other tablets too, not just iPads. haha
