    I’ll wait to buy it at a lower price when the new ones come out later this year.

    Wow, that sounds very tempting. I may jump on one of these. I wonder if this signals an upcoming refresh.

    EDIT: I guess I should have read the post immediately preceding this one. I too may wait.

    It should have been $799 at launch like the 12.9" before it...

    These "sales" are a joke!

    They better damn well add OLED next gen for these prices.

    Based on what timeline? September is iPhone launch, not ipad.

    Average release time shows there is a year to wait for updated models. iPadOS will freshen up demand for the current line so why would Apple update this year?

    If history is any indication then if you're waiting for a price that is more than $175 off MSRP then you'll most likely be disappointed. $175 off was the high-water mark for discounts for the previous 2 generations of 12.9 Pros. And those didn't happen when the newer models were released.


    I have reason to believe that there will at least be a partial refresh of the current 2018 Pro models (with a more remote possibility of a new model)

    Don't get me wrong, I'm waiting for a refresh if it has a stronger structural build. 12.9" pro is what I lust for. But it seems too early based on history. Will be happy to be wrong.

    Any clue where your getting your believe from?

    Too late... I got you wrong. :p ;)

    The refresh that I'm referring to is something along the lines of increased RAM from 4GB (for the under 1TB storage models) to 6GB...not a modified chassis. I think iPadOS will be driving that, if it happens.

    I can only commit to spending the ticket price for the 12.9" Pro when I know Apples has improved the structure. No way I can use a device and be worried about it bending like a banana overtime (or even out of the box). I see the posts from people reporting their device is fine but this is outweighed, for me, by the posts and videos that show theirs has bent even if only slightly. I appreciate this has been discussed (argued) at length already but thats where I stand sadly.

    It's frustrating as Amazon is slowly reducing the price already making it hard to resist, but resist I must!

    Thanks for your input. I guess I will wait and save up more money for their next iteration since it doesn't seem like we are far off from it.
