I'm of the opinion that there WON'T be an updated 12.9 Pro announced in March/April.Thanks. I imagine that the next version of the 12.9 will have the same or better specs than the next version of the 9.7?

The 12.9 iPP serves a different audience than the 9.7 iPP crowd. The 12.9 iPP wasn't intended to serve as a general purpose tablet and so some of those things like True Tone and higher resolution camera are not critical to introduce now. They can wait until Oct/Nov (or later).
Just my opinion but the current 12.9 iPP is head and shoulders above all other iPads that are currently available. (of course those who want True Tone and a wider color gamut would disagree) There is little reason for Apple to further advance the 12.9 beyond where it already is without associated advancements in iOS.You're saying there will be an updated 12.9 in October? Why not now?
It doesn't. It has True tone which is a meh feature at best. It has 2gb of ram versus 4gb of the 12.9. The 12.9 also has faster usb transfer speeds. The camera is better on the 9.7 but who the hell would hold up a 12.9 inch iPad to take video/photos?
It is just as possible that your iPad w/12MP camera could've been the device that was at the far end of the house.When your iPhone is at the far end of the house and your DSLR is in the basement, having a 12MP camera handy for when a cat is doing something cute is worthwhile, I would. Especially when said cat has cancer and every day is a gift.
Heck, Friday morning I was up too early and one of the other cats was near me and I wanted their photo. The iPhone was behind said cat and grabbing it would destroy the mood. Took iPad up from keyboard stand and grabbed the photo. Sadly it is an older iPad Air and I really hate the camera but for getting memories it is okay.

This is why these things are highly subjective. While that scenario is something that you experienced, for the rest of us it is such a rare occurrence (if it would happen at all) that making a purchasing decision based on an outlier like that is not wise.
