It’s spelled beaucoup.Incredible! I went from a 2017 10.5” to a 2018 12.9”. Really loving the upgrade so far. New design is gorgeous, screen to body ratio is excellent, weight is much more manageable than the 2015 12.9” I once owned, speakers are phenomenal, etc etc.
Personally I would have regretted spending the buku bucks to upgrade from the 10.5” to the 11” because the difference isn’t THAT immense aside from having the newest and best, but if you’re a frequent Pencil user the usability has been much improved. In hindsight though I’m glad I got the 12.9” (okay well I bought both and I’m going to return the 11”) and would only upgrade from the 10.5” if I was also going to get a truly new experience with the bigger iPad, given the cost.
When has a iPad needed future proofing (each new one is good for 5 years)????Wow! Is the first thing that comes to mind. I’m seriously blown away and it was worth the long, long wait. Now, that’s coming from someone that replaced his old 16Gb iPad Air with a new Gen 3 12.9” iPad Pro with Apple keyboard/case and pencil. And because I hold onto products for the long run (obviously), I went with the 6Gb ram version for future proofing.
Agreed. Coming from a 10.5" IPP, I went all-out. I got the 11", Apple Smart Folio, Apple Smart Folio with Keyboard, and Apple Pencil 2.I wasn't planning of upgrading my 1st generation 12.9 Pro but bit the bullet after being able to sell it.
Let me tell you, it's night and day! My new 12.9 is a beautiful fast machine, a pleasure to hold (and smell..hehe).
I'm also happy that glass screen protectors work with the 12.9 and mine was flawlessly installed.
Make sure you use the new wallpapers. Opening your new iPad with them really shows off the nice almost bezel-less display perfectly. There's actually a "wow factor" seeing one of these wallpapers upon turning on your new iPad.
You also have to get at least the Smart Folio Cover...I won't spoil it for you...just get one and let me know.
Overall, I'm very happy with it.
I have the JeTech from Amazon...no issues at all with the 12.9”. Lot’s of issues with the 11” though as evidenced in these forums so if you have a 12.9, you’re fine.Which screen protector do you have? I thought there were issues with Apple pencil compatibility and Face ID functionality with the first crop of available protectors.
