    Hello Everyone
    I curtently have an iPad Air 2 that I purchased 2 years ago . Yesterday , I went to an Apple Store and I saw the 12.9 iPad . And I really like it . I know the new iPads will come in March . So ,
    My parents will travel in the first week of March . Question : Should I ask them to buy the 12.9 iPad for me or not ?

    If I upgrade to the next iPad Pro 2 I will have to wait until October to get an Pro 2
    I have two options
    1 - buy the 12.9 iPad in March ,however I will have to skip the newer one
    2- wait until
    Ocotober to get the new iPad Pro

    What should I do ?

    If you need that; get it it. iPad is just as functional and useless today as it will be in the forseeable future

    I would say to wait. You seem to just want it and not need it since you actually have an iPad Air 2 already. Unless the screen size or pencil is something that's a make or break for whatever your iPad use is, it's probably not worth the 800$+ for the new one now. Especially if it's your parents money. If anything wait to see what a second generation offers, and either get the first gen for a more reasonable price, or invest in the improved features of the second gen.

    Well, What the deal of waiting ? Screen size is the deal breaker for me . Also, I really don't care about true tone . I will buy it . Tired of waiting.........

    As someone who got a 12.9 on Black Friday ($650 for refurb 256gig on eBay!) I would say that this is my favorite iPad. The screen, pencil and keyboard combo make it a fully functional work machine for me, and the battery life is amazing. I also don't mind the additional weight- reminds me of my first iPad 2 and that thing was a tank.

    With apple, you can always wait for the next one, or take the plunge and enjoy it now. Tons of deals going on now for the 12.9 if you look for them, so I'd say go for it.

    It will still be a Relevant iPad for while. I'm curious to see what March brings. But the 12.9 Pro is still a great piece of hardware.

    12.9 pro is a great device and will be for a while. Size of it was just annoying for me after a while and was ignoring the macbook. Interested what the pro brings for the 2nd one though

    Get it now. Its internals will be plenty of power for years to come. Knowing Apple, they will just update the camera's and give it tru tone and call it revolutionary. Unless it is redesigned with smaller bezels, I wouldn't bother waiting. I wouldn't bet on that either as Apple loves a good bezel on an iOS device:)

    Why wouldn't you buy it?
    It's the best tablet out there right now.

    Seems you'd already made your mind up?

    Me? I'd happily wait until March for the new one (unless you can get the current one at a really deep discount). But what's the deal with you having to wait until October? What country are you in?

    Just wait until March Apple Event and see what they have. If you don't like it then you can buy 12.9 Pro now
