    I currently have the 9.7 Pro and won't be upgrading this gen as I'm more than happy with my current device although considering getting the 12.9 next time.

    I remember when the 12.9 came out there was a lot of chat regarding the apps just being blown up on the larger of the Pros. Is that still the case?

    Also dislike the fact the 12.9 doesn't utilise the split keyboard. I understand it's marketed as a different type of device but would love that feature on the larger Pro. Assume that's still the case?

    I sure would hope you wouldn't upgrade to a new iPad a year after getting one, unless you do something that actually pushes the hardware of the Pro to its limits already. I don't know if that's even possible right now :)

    A lot of apps are optimised for the 12.9 screen. (I don't understand why Facebook isn't though). However that doesn't mean that the apps are in any way better than on the smaller pro. There aren't are huge selection of long, console quality games, Adobe Lightroom is getting better but the desktop version is way better.
    It just needs some really solid professional video editing and photo editing apps. Final Cut Pro for it would be a dream.

    In saying that, it is still the best iPad experience. The big screen is great, same with the speakers.

    Hoping with iOS 11 there will be a lot more pro specific features and enhancements.

    I tend to upgrade every 2 years.

    Not because I have to, because I want to.

    Nothing wrong with having the most up to date device even if you're not pushing it to the limit.

    Always pass on my old device. I know my iPad 2, iPad 4 and Air 2 are still being used today.
