Apple Mbile Device Compatibility & Fnctionality

BluchipBluchip Member Posts: 20 ✭✭
I am curious as to Onshape and how well it functions with Apple mobile devices. I had used the software in limited basic functions with an iPad Mini. All seemed well. However, Onshape has determined to not support that device (if I understand correctly). No issue, it's a rather small device to design with but it was convenient to view/demonstrate projects.
That said, what Apple mobile devices are supported and intended to be supported into the future? Specifically, will there be support for iPad pro? With the intro of a 12.9 iPad pro, this is a viable device to actually design with. How well does Onshape interface and is this going to be the case for the foreseeable future?

    Ah! That sounds very nice! I thought what a nice platform the Pro with Pencil would be equipped with Onshape!
    Thank you!

    Onshape is incredible on the iPad.  Performance is far superior to the browser version.

    Thank you @coleman ! That's good to know! But we must be precise so as not to confuse anyone...not just any iPad. If I understand it correctly, only the newer generations of iPads with 64 bit processors.
