    hello all,
    I have the 9,7" Pro and I am wondering what is the practical difference when it comes to using this new Pro. I get the biggest and brighter screen. It changes nothing. Is the Apple Pencil the same or is there a new Apple Pencil? Any new functionalities? Sharing my workflow real time on-line during a video conference? What are the new use cases that I will be able to do that are not possible with the 9,7 " Pro?
    Thank you!

    One of the benefits they mentioned was that the on screen and physical keyboards are now able to be full size. But to be honest I think iPad keys are great ATM already!

    Seriously? Just read the product description.

    This is a replacement product for 9.7" Pro. The differences should be obvious.

    there was no mention of updating the Pencil.
    the 10.5 screen's sensors are better though, so the Pencil feels much more responsive apparently

    I dont think there are any real practical differences. The existing pro's are already beasts. iOS 11 is what will bring the truly practical changes!

    right, besides the slightly larger screen, there is no difference, especially compared to the 9.7" Pro

    I was thinking the same. I guess only software can make a difference.

    120Hz refresh rate, if you care.

    4 GB RAM
    30% faster CPU
    40% faster GPU
    Improved screen (brightness/refresh rate/colour)
    20% larger screen in a similarly sized device

    I'll be buying one to replace my iPad 3

    From an iPad-3 for people owning the iPad-3 is this upgrade to the 10.5" iPad Pro well warranted ?

    Yes! my dad currently has my old iPad 3 and the iPad Pro's are beasts compared to the iPad 3, he will be getting my iPad Pro 12.9" 1st gen when i upgrade to the new one, well when i actually decide which size to get :eek: :)
