Microsoft is still king of the Office apps and that’s especially true for spreadsheets. If you’ve ever wanted to pivot a table or do any number of ledger-ly things, you’ve wanted to do it in Excel. What makes Excel for iPad especially great is that Microsoft prioritized it even over the company’s own mobile devices and that head-start has made it not only a good Office app but a good iPad app. Heck, with split-view support, it makes it a great one. And Word, Powerpoint, and OneNote are no slouches either.

On the iPad, iMovie is already amazing. On the iPad Pro, we’re going to need a bigger superlative. That’s because, thanks to the Apple M1 processor, iMovie on the iPad Pro can handle not one, not two, but three streams of 4K video all at once, which is ludicrously great. Apple’s other iPad apps also shine on the larger iPad Pro canvas, including GarageBand for music, and Keynote, Numbers, and Pages for presentations, spreadsheets, and documents.

Adobe Premiere Rush

Editing video — especially high-res files — is one of the most taxing things you can do on any device, and doing it on an iPad can be really hard. Still, the M1 chip in the newest iPad Pro and iPad Air make editing video on a tablet a much smoother experience.

Adobe Rush is basically a stripped-down version of its popular editing software for Mac and PC called Premiere Pro, but even though it may not have all the features of the Mac software, it’s still the best video editing software you can get your iPad.

The user interface is fairly easy to navigate and still offers all the features you could want while editing a video, like color correction, audio mixing, the ability to add titles and transitions, and so much more. You’ll likely forget that you aren’t on a desktop because the app has everything you need.

While the focus for Adobe Premiere Rush is predominately on preparing social media videos, that doesn’t mean the software is only for amateurs because it lets you move content back and forth between Premiere Rush and Premiere Pro. This makes it an excellent way for video editors to get some work done on their latest project when they can’t be at their desktops.

Just remember, because it is an Adobe product, you do need to get a subscription, which you can bundle with other Adobe software, or just get Premiere Rush itself.

As you can imagine, editing photos also takes quite a bit of processing power. I’m not talking about just applying filters or cropping a photo, but extensive and precise edits like color grading, editing the light curves, and even digitally enchanting a photo. I use Pixelmator to edit my photos on my Mac and iPad Air 5, and the M1 is particularly helpful when editing photos en mass.

With Pixelmator, you’ll get access to single-tap color correction presets and facial editors that can easily erase imperfections, blemishes, unwanted objects, and so much more. Plus, you’ll even have the option to edit photos that are up to 100MP in size, which means even if you’re shooting in a high-quality camera, you should be able to edit those photos right on your iPad.

Heck, Pixelmator doesn’t just stop at editing photos; you can also paint mages directly onto your iPad using your Apple Pencil, turning your tablet into a digital canvas.

I know you think I’m crazy for putting this on the list, but hear me out. If you’re a spreadsheet wizard, you know just how much Excel can slow down your computer or tablet once you really start making charts, graphs, and tables for everything. It takes a decent amount of CPU power to run lots of spreadsheets, but more important than that, the M1 chip in your iPad will help run Excel much more smoothly when you’re multitasking.

Yes, Apple’s own spreadsheet program, Numbers, does still exist, but Microsoft is still the king of spreadsheets. Plus, Excel is so widely used on iPad that Microsoft actually went out of its way to make its iPad version of Excel the absolute best that it can be, making it one of the best iPad apps in general.

Codea is a really cool app that is aimed at helping you learn about coding, app design, and game design on iPad. It uses the Lua programming language and is specifically made to be a friendly and inviting coding editor.

Of course, Codea won’t have you making a top-selling game on the App Store right away, but it’s an amazing tool to help you understand the fundamentals of game design and 3D graphics. If you’re at all interested in what designing apps is like on the iPad, there’s no better software than Codea to get your feet wet.

You’re probably starting to see a theme in this list, but creative work tends to take a lot of GPU power, which the M1 excels at offering on the iPad. Procreate has long been one of the best apps for drawing or creating digital art, and it runs amazingly well on an M1 iPad.

Whether you love painting, sketching, or drawing, Procreate has all the tools you need to turn your M1 iPad into the ultimate artist’s canvas. With highly advanced tools like the dual-texture brushes and expert smudging tools, you can create truly beautiful works of art that look like they were actually painted.

It’s versatile, too, allowing you to export your creations in PSD, native .procreate, TIFF, transparent PNG, multi-page PDF, or even web-ready JPEG file formats. Plus, the project tracking feature lets you record your progress as a time-lapse video that you can share with others, which is perfect for social media posts — people love speed painting!

Call of Duty: Mobile

While not all mobile games need a ton of power to run smoothly, certain mobile games (typically ones from the big game development studios) can be power hogs making them run a little choppy on older chipsets. My M1 iPad Air 5 has been able to handle any game I throw at it, including the impressive Call of Duty: Mobile.

When playing Call of Duty: Mobile on your M1 iPad with a game controller in your hand, it’s easy to forget you’re not playing the game on an actual console.

With classic modes such as Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Kill-Confirmed on iconic maps such as Shipment, Raid, and Standoff, as well as 100 player Battle Royale mode, Call of Duty: Mobile really is a AAA gaming experience. Plus, it’s multiplayer, meaning you can compete with your friend or people from around the world.
