For those that have downloaded the beta of IOS 11 does it make a big difference on the 12.9" iPad Pro over the smaller 10.5" iPad Pro? i thought it worth asking for those who are still deciding between the 10.5" and the 12.9" version and also to see what early opinions are on this.

Are some features better on the bigger screen? or are they simply equal? or in fact do you prefer the 10.5" iPad Pro with IOS 11

@dof250 is correct. In 50/50 split view an app like Safari, for example, will still show the iPad UI (buttons on top, next to toolbar) on a 12.9 and the iPhone ui (buttons on bottom) on a 9.7". Properly written apps should do the same type of thing.
