Why Do Tablets Seem To Be On The Decline?

As creatives, we use tablets in lots of ways. As tablets have become more popular in recent years, developers have created more and more apps that we can use to help speed up our workflows. Whether it is for photography, design, illustration, or even filmmaking, chances are there’s an app for that.

While it has become common to see people working with tablets, the enthusiasm for tablets has clearly been on the decline. In this video, Marques Brownlee explains why our interest in tablets seems to be waning and why people aren’t purchasing them as frequently as they used to. Do you use tablets in your workflow? What apps could you not live without?

  • Tim says:

    What is the proof tablet usage is on the decline? Just because they aren’t selling doesn’t mean people aren’t using them. They last a long time and don’t need to be updated every year. I use my iPad with Procreate or Pixelmator all the time for painting.

    • I think that Marques makes some good points. I personally love my tablet but I haven’t had any need to upgrade in years. He also makes a good point that they are getting squeezed out of the market by larger phones and smaller laptops.
