I went to the Apple store today to check out what all the hype was about with the new iPads. I went around 7:30pm so it was pretty dead, nice and quiet. My intitial thoughts, the design is pretty cool, the form factor is very nice, surprised how much thinner it is and how small the 11” looks to my eyes but the screen is surprising big and handling the iPad was very nice. I checked out the 12.9”, IMO it’s still feels too big and I just can’t see myself carrying around an iPad that big around everywhere. Just didn’t feel comfortable holding it. The new iPad is very smooth, ProMotion makes a world of difference, surprised how buttery smooth navigation is, I hope they do something to bring this technology to the iPhone in the near future. Now here is my biggest annoyance, I have a 10.5” iPad Pro and the screen just doesn’t feel improved, like it’s the same type of screen in my eyes, and when I’ve been using my iPhone XS Max the screen on the iPad just feels dull? Maybe it’s the OLED effect. Even my 10.5” screen looks meh now since I’ve been using the XS. I understand we are still far away from OLED on the iPad due to cost factor, but the iPad is getting close to 2 grands so we should be able to get a decent OLED on it no? If the new iPad had a better screen I would totally trade in my current iPad for it, the fact is Apple didn’t deliver this feature this time, I’m hoping next year we will see a considerate screen quality bump, maybe a higher resolution and better depth. If you have a very old iPad then this is totally worth upgrading, but if you have the last year 12.9 and 10.5 then I’d think really long and hard before considering wasting your hard earned money on a decent upgrade. I can still appreciate the easyness of using touchid, kinda bummed they are getting rid of Touch ID from iPad and iPhones.
