    I just wanted to say this. The speed is incredible. I wonder what iOS version will slow these tablets down ?

    My 12.9 so much smoother than my MacBook Pro 2015. No regrets selling my MacBook now

    If I didn't have a Gaming PC I would of most likely got the 12.9 inch because it would be my only device. I know this is what Apple is trying to do!

    I am curious do you know or anyone if the iPad has always had a SSD as a storage drive ?

    My 10.5 is smoother and faster but until iOS11, it is much like my 9.5.

    Still like them both very much.

    Yeah iOS devices have always had digital storage. The last Apple pocket/handheld device to have a mechanical drive was the iPod AFAIK.

    Obviously the Flash speeds are stupidly quick compared to how they used to be, so in tandem with the faster memory speed and crazy CPU jump, they're ridiculously powerful.

    I really don't have anything to compare it too - other then a 2nd gen iPad mini, but overall the iPad is very fast. I'm quite pleased with it.
