    Hey guys, just wanted to get your thoughts on this one and apologies if it is already being discussed elsewhere...

    With the release of iPad Pro, does it make sense now to have three sub-forums for each of the iPad product lines? One sub-forum each for Mini, iPad and iPad Pro, similar to the way Mac forums are structured. The iPad forum feels cluttered with discussions across all three products, and without an easy way to filter discussions by product line

    Thanks for your time and consideration

    I don't think splitting the iPad forum by model makes sense. We don't do that for the MacBook Air, MacBook pro, MacPro, or the iPhone forums. Splitting out by model type will get overly complex and severely increase the forum bloat.

    The difference with the mac organization is that they're completely different lines, i.e., MacBook air vs. MacBook Pro. We don't have a sub forum for the 13" MBP and another for the 15" MBP which is what you're advocating for the iPad forum.

    I feel you, I don't even look at the iPad forums anymore since they're cluttered with Pro posts. The tags help, but not everyone uses them.

    Meh,,, a ,,, no there are IPads, then there is the pro series,it is much faster than ipad, pitting dual quad core xeon desktop against it in Win 7. It is impressive, but no match for quad core xeons, but mobile, very nice. Much faster than iPad mini that is stacking up in chip delays from fatter OS updates.

    Tip of the hat for MR for keeping the edit to post

    you have a bigger screen, pencil and a keyboard. Now I have been corrected by some of your more puritanical IPP owners as saying apple is not even marketing the last 2 as essential and accessories only. SO in deference to them...they are off the table. Don't like it, get with your more touch screen or death IPP brethren and you all work out who is doing it "wrong" and tell us the results. Too old to walk into those geek fights...I did my cli *nix wars tour of duty. And fought in the MSDOS wars as well until windows finally took off.

    There are no IPP only apps. I can run the same as you on a mini 4, or 2. If App A is giving you fits...chances real good I have the same issue on a mini 4 (beyond display ofc...actual bugs).

    Faster procs do not change the world unless coded for. Not many break out the ARM architecture tech docs to make it sing. they rely on x-code to do that. Raw and native x-code. Vice you c or even fortran compilers/libraries for when you want an application to zoom on an intel based system.

    We don't have a separate forum for the Pro, rather we have, and encourage the use of, the thread prefix for the various models.
