    The reason being is tethering does not seem to be that stable with my iPhone 6s Plus sometimes. I really don’t want to pay a monthly fee for my tablet too though.

    One question does the iPad Pro Wi-fi/4g lte model have a gps unlike the other model?

    I feel like this question is a decision only you can make. It’s mostly about money.

    Yes, the LTE model has GPS.

    Depends on the monthly fee and how much data you get I guess. I have a pro 12.9 on verizon and i get unlimited for $20

    We all know it is not really unlimited.

    How often do you tether? I bought a LTE iPad, once, and tbh, I found I didn't really use the LTE portion much. I understand my use case is not yours.

    its a minor feature, but not enough imo, that would help justify purchasing a LTE model iPad. Its not like you'll be driving and holding an iPad :p

    Maybe once a month if that.

    True.

    To me that doesn't sound like a use-case that justifies the purchase of an LTE based iPad. That's just me, and its ultimately your decision

    my opinion is that one of the best benefits of an ipad over a PC is built in 4G connectivity

    If you use it. I have zero need for LTE, and while I use my iPad quite often, I've yet come to a situation where I stated I needed LTE. The OP, posted he may need it once a month, if that much.

    I would keep the current device then. I only ever use the WiFi iPads and have an iPhone for the few times a year when there is a need to use it in the field with tethering.
