Science proves it: Most NFTs are worthless

Presented by
One of the best things about Apple’s iPad is how many gestures, features, and options it offers to let you get more useful work done in less time. And one of the worst things is that not all of these goodies are all that obvious unless you already know they’re there. Doug Aamoth—who recently bought a new iPad Mini after spending a few years off the iPad bandwagon—rounded up seven of the most effective productivity boosters available in iPadOS 15. Spend a little time learning them, and you’ll reap the benefits every time you pick up your tablet.
