    Not in every case, but in most cases yes. Though I am hearing the iPad Pro because of the much larger screen many devs are pushing users to buy again.

    You can create a backup of your iPhone through iTunes, and then select "restore from backup" when setting up the new iPad. Any iPad compatible apps will automatically install on the iPad.

    Oh, so there might be compatibility issues with certain apps/games ?

    Won't be going pro, far too much $$ for me, probably used 2 or new air 4.

    Oh with the Air 2 and Mini you shouldn't have an issue. Usually those apps are universal and work on both. Though clearly not all.

    There's the occasional app for which there's not an iPad optimized version. For example, PayPal. In that case it can still be installed on the tablet, but it will be a scaled up version of the phone app which won't quite fit the aspect ratio and resolution of the iPad, but it will still function.

    Yes, you can install all the apps on your phone onto the iPad. BUT they may not all be optimized for the iPad. Like Instagram, you can get that on the iPad, but its an iPhone sized app
