Quick question. My eyes are getting worse and I need a bigger screen to read on.

Since the iPad Pro has been out for so long should I wait for the new one to come out or could that be a long while?

Thanks for any advice!

Nobody here knows when the new iPad will debut and Apple has not confirmed if there will even be a new iPad release.

The 12.9 Pro has a large display for your reading situation.

Wait a little longer so that u have a choice of getting the new generation or the present generation, most likely reduced $$.

I agree just wait as the new ones probably will be here soon and well before fall and then the current ones will drop in price, for the age of the current ones they are hardly worth the msrp they want for them.

By a little while longer, be prepared to wait until Fall. It would be a pleasant surprise if it's released before then. I'm just doubtful it will.

I'm planning on getting a 256GB LTE model and there's hardly any deals on those so I'm waiting, too. Old model's just not worth the full MSRP at this point in time. :rolleyes:

New iPhones in the fall. iPads usually announced around April, for summer release, iirc. At least, here in Canada.

Wait to buy the upcoming iPad Pro model. Screen tech will be better. SOC will be faster, more energy efficient.

Unfortunately you will have to wait until October.

I am hoping for new ipads with wwdc, with new software features in IOS11.
Please give me:
-Adding vertical splitscreen/multiwindow
-tracksupport for text/type intensive apps together with a new smart keyboard cover with trackpad.

New iPads won't be announced until around September or October time, Apple doesn't typically release products at WWDC so the nearest event after that would be the iPhone event in September.

Yes, and last year they released the 9.7 inch pro in april, and they didn' t update the 12.9 last and this year, and didn' t update the 9.7 pro this year. They did not update the macbook 12inch and imac this year.
Etc, etc..
All is subject to change, i guess...

With this exciting insight a Spring launch would be the logical thing
