I am somewhat floored by the announcement that this new iPad has support for the Apple Pencil. I have been saving for an iPad Pro for my creative daughter, on the assumption that only the Pro would have this halo feature. Now I discover that I can get her a 9.7” iPad 2018 for about $429, roughly half the cost of a Pro. Is the new iPad competitive for latency and responsiveness when sketching with the pencil? I ask because Apple has a long history of second-rate products targeted at eduction while reserving their best for the pro market. Can it really be that the main draw of the iPad Pro has now been bestowed on the entry-level model? And without any artificial hobbling or hamstringing?
