I had asked over in the iPad section. And would also like to post here. For those using the Xs Max do you find you use your iPad less? I understand it depends on what one needs the iPad for however I seem to see a trend of those just needing media consumption and reading seem to be using their iPad less.

haven't owned an ipad since the iphone 6+ came out. I have absolutely no need for it and find myself doing pretty much everything on my XS Max, an iPad would be redundant for me tbh.

My max is why i got the 12.9 as felt my 10.5 become used less as i often used my 10.5 on the sofa But now the Max is what i use for those moments. I use my max more than Any other phone due to the bigger screen.

Not really. Whilst the max is bigger than the plus sized iPhones, it’s not my first big phone. I had the 6 plus, 6S plus and 7 plus and before that a few galaxy notes and still used my iPads.

No change for me. I've had the big iPhones since the 6 Plus, and I still use my iPad a great deal with no real drop off in usage quantity or type.

No way for me. Two different devices. My MAX has a big screen but nothing beats the 11”!

In a pinch the MAX does full websites for me but the experience is not the same as on my iPad.

This ^^^ and I'd add that for me even the Mini is a qualitatively different experience than a Plus/Max iPhone. This becomes especially true once you turn the device over into landscape orientation. And once you get to one of the "full size" iPads (9.7/10.5/especially 11) there's no comparison.

I use my iPad when I’m on the couch and use my Max when I’m in bed. That’s basically how I use them.
