I cannot say I recommend it but StaffPad is now available for iPad Pro. It was originally written for Microsoft's Surface tablet line but has been completely rewritten and released for iPadOS. It makes use of the Apple Pencil so it is supposed to be like writing on manuscript paper. Before I retired, I had a Surface from work so I tried on the Surface and it was awful. When it came out for the iPad Pro, I tried it again and it worked better. I haven't really had time to work with it for an extended period of time to determine how well it works as a "real" composing/arranging tool. One of the draws for me is that you can purchase DAW-quality sample libraries for use with StaffPad that can produce demos of significantly better quality than Finale/Sibelius/Dorico. It's not cheap, especially if you purchase some of the sample libraries, but there is great potential.|
