    Will the iPad Pro 9.7" end up being the iPad 3?

    I think you should re-watch the Video - the test never included a 9.7" iPad Pro so pretty hard to come to your conclusion.

    It was between the Air 2 and iPad Pro 12.9

    I am enjoying both my iPad Pros so much no need to even watch the video. So far the best iPads I have ever owned.

    That's not what the title of your thread says.

    Does anyone really turn off an iPad to care about start up? I never turn mine off

    Oh man, I was using my pro for about a week now. Guess it's garbage, I should definitely get rid of it because of the once a month I might happen to restart it.

    Shame.

    It is a moot point considering most people probably don't even turn their iPads off and the rare time their iPads need to be restarted it's pretty much a trivial matter. I never turn my iPad off. Once in a blue moon I need to restart it but then I don't measure the time it takes and overal it's pretty quick anyway.

    Maybe it's loading the pencil recognition software. Or the ambient light sensor software. Or the 4 speaker drivers.

    In other news, a lawnmower starts up faster than a locomotive.

    "Will the iPad Pro 9.7" end up being the iPad 3?".

    Of course it will, with the tight 2GB of RAM.

    Glad I returned mine!

    Well I find that my iPad Pro 9.7 boots faster than my Mini 4.

    I stumbled upon that video today before seeing this and thought it was a little fishy.

    Not really. The iPad 3 suffered from weak CPU and GPU, not lack of RAM. Rather, the Pro 9.7 will probably be more like the Air 1 as iOS gets heavier. Fast processor but prone to out of memory crashes and frequent tab refreshes.

    Then again, the same will be true for the Air 2 anyway since it also has 2GB of RAM (except it's got a slower CPU). Simply put, if you want a 9.7" iOS tablet, best in class at the moment is the iPad Pro 9.7". Only difference is for those on a tight budget, the savings from getting the Air 2 might enable them to upgrade their iPad sooner.

    You can turn them off?? This is news to me, I must try it at some point so I can be impressed or shocked by how long it takes to do something I don't need it to do. :D

    I definitely don't compare the iPad Pro 9.7" to the iPad 3.
    The 3 doesn't really have a place, maybe compare it to the iPhone SE, where it was obvious that Apple had a ton of parts from older models and needed to get rid of them while at the same time putting in some new ones to keep people happy.
    iPad Pro brings a lot more to the table than that.

    If you think 2GB if RAM isn't enough for iOS, you've been grossly mislead. I'd demand a better explanation.


    Ok, as I'm here anyway, here's one I posted previously. Because I'm being lazy it's a cut and paste job.



    .........Before anyone inevitably starts shouting about the RAM, I'll just say my bit and I'm not going to argue on it. You can please yourself in what you think. No it's not (yes that's my answer to the inevitable RAM complaining,) the bottleneck I see when I'm developing apps is not the amount of memory, it's the chipset.

    For instance, I've had apps running great during development on an iPad Air with 1GB of RAM. When you drop to the previous generations iPad 3 & 4, both of which have the same RAM, neither of which get anything like the frame rate of the Air 1.

    The same is true of iPhones. iPhone 5s and 6, 1GB RAM, lovely performance. iPhone 5, also 1GB of RAM, nowhere like the same performance.

    You'd be surprised just how well iOS can cope with 1GB of RAM or more obviously. I still am sometimes when I'm monitoring the load on the system during development. Is there a difference? Well, of course. But is 2GB something to be concerned about? Not for quite some time that's for sure.

    I never turn off my iPad so boot up time is relatively a non-issue.(I have a 2)

    I have just done a side by side test of booting the Mini 4 and iPad Pro 9.7".

    My iPad Pro booted faster, using the same trick of having the both plugged into the same power brick.
    You can hear my foot clicking on the switch at the start of the video:

    Who care how fast it boots up. I have not rebooted either of my iPad Pros from day one.

    Someone needs to get out and make some friends or something.

    I'm surprised no-one has pointed out the title of this thread should read "8th fastest".

    "8th slowest" would mean there are 7 that are slower! :p

    All the test proves is that it is pointless to draw conclusions from 1 unit of each hardware version tested 1 time.

    According to that video the 9.7 pro takes 34s to boot.
    According to LCPeppers video, the 9.7 pro takes 16s to boot
    According to timing my own pro 9.7 several times, it consistently took 14s to boot

    But 8th fastest isn't right either.

    If the truth is that it loads behind the pro 12.9, then it is second fastest.

    But in the test the OP presented, 8th slowest is correct.

    So it begs the question...what happened here?1
