    What additions to the Pro would move you to purchasing the Pro 2?

    I'm on the fence getting the Pro so I'm curious what would make other holdouts more likely to bite? 3D Touch? Lighter?

    It does not have 3D Touch and its heavier than the iPad Air... So those 2 items are probably not the best reasons to update.

    Would you really expect it to be lighter than the iPad Air when it's quite a bit larger?

    I misread the op. I'm dumb like that. I thought he was saying the iPad pro had those features. I'm just going to walk backwards slowly out of the room......

    When Apple added 3D Touch to the iPhone it increased the weight, it's probably for that reason alone that they left it out of the iPad Pro.

    Good point that coupled with possible supply chain is perhaps why they left it out.

    If this version included it, I would definitely be purchasing Pro 1; but since it doesn't have it, I find myself wanting to hold out to Pro 2 (presumably next year).

    For me, nothing. I don't like the 3D touch on my new 6s Plus....seems like a pointless gimmick to me. I also am not a big fan of how fast the touch ID is, so I like the touch ID on the Pro.

    I'm going out on this limb and say that next year won't have a new pro. We will be in alternating years for iPads. This year was pro, next is air 3, year after that is pro 2, etc.
