Luminary Blur and The Apex: Together But Separate —

Luminary Blur and The Apex: Together But Separate

As I ponder how best to move forward with The Apex in 2021, I have decided that in whatever form it continues, it will be with a sole focus on the NTT IndyCar Series. Now that I’m back on my own — like the old days — it will be too much to focus on and enmesh myself in two vibrant series.

As a result, I’m not that interested in the Brydge Pro+, but I’ll withhold my final judgment on that score until I’ve seen reviews by people who have used production models of the device and tried one myself.

If MacStories is going to insist on incorporating opinionated nonsense in every article, wouldn’t it make sense to have someone write about the Brydge Pro+ who’s used iPadOS’s pointing device support more than on “several occasions”?
