    What would you guys think/ would you buy? Personally I think it would be awesome and I would definitely buy. What are the chances Apple changes the iPad to this form factor this generation of the iPad?

    Not sure. I would have to see what it looks like on an iPad.

    A different colour is not a new form factor. It's just another colour. If we'll see that on the iPad, nobody knows, but it would make sense from a consistency perspective. Since hardly anybody uses an iPad without a back case, the beauty of jet black devices can not be enjoyed that often anyway.

    I already spend too much time cleaning fingerprints off my iPad Pro screen to even contemplate the JB. I'd definitely be interested in the matte black however.

    I think a matte black iPad would look pretty good.

    If they're having a hard time with that finish on an iPhone I'd imagine it would be real hard to do it on a larger footprint..

    No way. Would not have JB. I cover with the silicone case and cover.

    All I care about is the bezels must be black.

    I agree with this 100% for my personal device.

    I like space grey and I think that jet black on the the iPad would be a bad idea because of scratching

    I would love a Jet Black iPad and I fully expect the colour to slowly permeate the Apple lineup just like every other colour has in recent years.

    That may be your impression but I've never put an iPad in a case - in fact the majority of iPads I see have some sort of Smart Cover or sometimes keyboard stand on them but most don't have a case.

    Cool, so I guess you would prefer a iPad that will eventually be scratched up due to the jet black color which wears quickly.......

    Oh yeah exactly, that's right! I just wished my iPad scratched more, that's why I want jet black.

    /s

    Some people... :rolleyes:. I bet you don't even own a jet black device.

    Geez, the people who act like an opinion on the internet will change their lives!

    Please. You lashed out, like a child, because someone said they don't use a case on their iPad. Surprise, kiddo. People use devices differently than you sometimes. Deal with it.

    I think I would like an iPad in Jet Black. I'm loving my 7 Plus in Jet Black, between ordering and receiving my phone the internet had be scared to death my phone was going to scratch when I looked at it wrong. I can honestly say, zero issues with that. I get it will likely show scratches easier but it's not this scratch magnet that everyone has made it out to be. I like how the Jet Black makes my phone look like one solid thing, I think I would like that for an iPad as well. Where I'm torn is a laptop. If they made it available for the MacBooks I don't know if the Jet Black color would have the same effect for me.
