Tough decision for me. I'm gonna have to spend some hours with the new iPad 10.5" in split screen
stick with ipp 12.9
none of the hardware updates interested me all that much so i'm sticking with my current 12.9. the software updates alone will make it feel like a new machine.
If I can get some decent cash for my 12.9 I will update around when iOS 11 drops. Not much need to upgrade yet IMO. I think I would like the 10.5" size a great deal more. 1lb and a smaller footprint is pretty attractive to me.
At $879 for 256GB Cellular model, I would want to offload my 12.9" 128GB cellular for $500 minimum. Not sure if that's possible.
i wish they would have shrunk the bezels on the 12.9" .. dont really feel the need to update to the new one
I am sticking with my 12.9" and chomping at the bit for the iOS 11 update in the fall!
I have a 12.9" with 128GB storage and was disappointed when Apple released the 256GB storage option some months later, instead of at launch, so that those of us who purchased at release missed that option. Now I have both 256GB and 512GB options to pick from so I am tempted to upgrade to the new 12.9", mostly for the storage increase, but also the display and camera upgrades.
More than happy with my 12.9". I don't have a single reason (at least strong enough reason) to upgrade my iPad. Still fast as hell, screen awesome, speakers amazing, battery life great. I don't need more Just give me iOS 11 with that new features
I may get the new 10.5" model, but I also love iPads, LOL.
I've owned my 12.9 Pro since March 2016...
The 10.5 Pro isn't on my radar and won't be until I hear how much RAM it has. I find it interesting that Apple decided to release a 10.5 Pro when the additions included in iOS 11 give even greater justification for the 12.9 Pro. I heavily use multi-window and multitasking on the 12.9 and it's going to be even better in iOS 11.
But if the 10.5 Pro comes with 4GB RAM, I will need to seriously consider THAT.
The internal updates to the 12.9 Pro aren't enough to get me to consider upgrading. The current 12.9 Pro is still a beast.
Sticking with my IPP 12.9" and I will be happy I do not need to shell out any more cash on something else when what I already have is pretty spectular to begin with.
Sticking with my 12.9, and whenever I do upgrade I'll stick with that size.
Did anyone think they said the new iPad Pro's would have USB-C??? I thought they showed a new USB-C to SD card adapter and what looked like the USB to USB-C adapter after talking about the Pro upgrades. It was only on the screen for a second, but did I totally dream that?
Watched it with friends and we witnessed that but cannot find anywhere currently that supports what they said.
What was said during the keynote was that the 10.5 Pro would support USB 3.0 speeds and take advantage of the USB-C charger for faster charging.... just like the 12.9 Pro.
Ah, thank you! I thought I was going crazy after looking at the TechSpecs on Apple's website and seeing "In the Box - Lightning to USB Cable".
The main reason Apple released a 10.5" is to really give the iPad pros a "clean break" from the regular iPads. Apple probably realized that "regular" IPad 9.7" (whether Air 2 or the new "iPad") were cannibalizing the Pro to an extend. Now the pro line is synonymous with larger screen size, pro functions via iOS11, etc.
That's a good theory.... which will tank if the 10.5 has only 2GB RAM.
man shrinking the bezels on the 12.9" would have made it perfect
I just placed my order for an updated 12.9", 512GB, LTE. My wife expressed an interest in getting my current 12.9" (... iPad guys, sheesh).
It was almost worth the purchase for me just to get the updated TouchID on it, haha.
did they mention it is getting the same touch id as the iphone 7 ?
I think people who upgrade from one generation to the next have way too much money..
this will be the first time since the first ipad that i dont upgrade
Going to grab the 512GB iPad Pro(s). The additional space will be a great relief - it's a lot easier to deal with lots of RAW files and 4K video with those sizes. I didn't expect it, but Apple really outdid itself with doubling storage capacities twice within 2 years.
Not during the keynote, but if you read the 'Overview' of it on the online store, they mention the TouchID has 2x the performance of the previous generation:
