    I currently have an ipad air 2, which i'm loving, apart from one thing, the screen size. My eye sight isn't the best. I tend to play a lot of games and watch media on my air 2. I am very tempted by the Pro, but i have heard stories that state if the app isn't optimized for the larger screen, they don't display correctly. I have tried searching, but cant find much. Does anyone have an example photo of how it would display? I'm not sure i could be doing with large black lines etc down the side!

    Also, anyone with the pro, how is it with games, do you find it hard to hold etc whilst playing games?

    thanks, and a merry xmas to everyone :)

    They all display like normal! Just kinda zoomed in and a bit fuzzy. The bar at the top is pretty big haha

    For example:

    I'm actually waiting for apps to be more powerful for it! There are pretty much no good video editing apps! iMovie is ok, but it's extremely limited! The Adobe apps are a bit meh. Hopefully some good new app optimisations come over the new year!

    Non-optimized apps on the iPad Pro look like apps on the iPhone 6 plus when it first came out. They basically made everything bigger, but with lower resolution.

    I'm a little surprised big name apps like Facebook haven't updated theirs yet. Doesn't seem like it would be hard for a big company like that

    Facebook are often slow for specific device-related updates, if I recall. I was really surprised how quickly they added 3D Touch to their iOS app - but not surprised at all that they are late to the iPad Pro party. More surprised at the lack of split screen in Pocket, for example.

    it would take some months before seeing apps really optimized for the iPad Pro.
    And I'm not only speaking about visual appearance . I'm looking for apps exploiting 4 Gb of ram and a powerful SoC.
    As of today the lowest common denominator for iOS apps is an A5 with 512 Kb of ram.
