I'm looking to pick up an iPad to use as I start 6 months of travelling. I've previously owned the iPad 3rd generation and a 1st generation iPad Pro (2nd hand with bad battery so I got rid). I don't really want to pick up the base model as I think it's a bit too too thick and heavy, and don't want to pay for what is a 5-year old design. I've held out hoping that the new releases would push down the price of the 2nd gen iPad Pro (10.5"), or that I'd just go for the new model. I'm wanting to use some AMEX points I've earned to use towards the purchase on Amazon. The dilemma? I set off travelling on the 1st November. I won't be in an Amazon-operating country til after Christmas. I don't want to be one of those people who buys an iPad 2 weeks before new ones come out. What's the delay on launch to in stock for iPads usually? Is it the same as the iPhones or is there less time between? What would you do?
