    Next year, we will get probably, reduced top botton and side bezels on the current 12.9" ipad pro
    what would you like? smaller footprint and lighter 12.9" ipad pro or go with the almost same footprint and make it a 13.6" (like Apple did with the 9.7" ipad pro to 10.5")

    Why stop at 13.6? Why not make a 15" or larger? I see no reason for apple to make an even larger tablet. The 12.9 is not the most holdable tablet, making a larger iPad will certainly reduce its usefulness, i.e., diminishing returns

    personally speaking, the ipad pro is a laptop replacement, and sits on my desk with the smart keyboard, so yes, anything larger than a 12.9 inch is good in my books :)

    like they did with the 9.7" ? they could make it even more compact, but they instead offer a better screen real estate

    They made the 10.5 to differentiate between the non-pro iPad and the pro iPad.

    and from the 10.5" to the 12.9" what the difference, both are "pro" except the display
    nevertheless, i made a poll about YOU think Apple should do, or will do

    what i would like to see is a screen that's actually 8.5"x11". i don't like that the screen of the 12.9 is less than an actual paper. if, and possible when, that comes out, i will trade in my iPad for that =D

    14" diagonal (8.4" x 11.2") is around the same size as two 10.5" side by side.

    Can't see them introducing yet another screen size; many apps are not yet updated for the 10.5, and some not even for the 12.9!
