I have never owned an i or Mac anything but I have to buy a tablet and had decided on an iPad Pro 9.7 - an expensive option!

I have now discovered that there is no official way to have a guest account on iPads - has any iPad user found a work round for this - it is essential that the tablet I buy has this facility

Can the guest use more than one app using that method, Jomlett?

What didn't you know, chrissa?
It temporarily restrict iPad to one particular app it...disables areas of the screen that aren’t relevant to a task.

Thanks, Jomlett. Back to the drawing board for me, then. I need a guest facility similar to Windows and Android :(
It is available on the MacBook and MacBook Air.
Question Author
Thanks, but it's specifically a tablet I need.

Are you happy with your iPad Pro? What size is it?
I'm using the iPad Pro 12.9 screen and it's awesome, I love it.

Isn't it a bit heavy and awkward to use?
It is heavier but using the very versatile Smart Cover on my lap or desk is a dream.
Question Author
Thanks for the help, Jomlett
Glad to help, hc.
Jomlett, The Smart Cover for your iPad Pro that you refer to is that the the keyboard one?

I have an ipad2 (so very old) and I am wanting an newer version & I am thinking of the keyboard also.
No the Smart Cover isn't the keyboard. Last year I had the iPad Pro 9.7 with the cover/keyboard and I liked it, but smaller then I'm used to on previous MacBooks.
