I've been thinking lately that I would like to purchase the ASK for my 2017 12.9 IPP. However, after some research, I found that only the 10.5 ASK has the updated water resistant material and new scissor key mech. The 12.9 ASK did not receive these updates. Not sure if a new 12.9 ASK is on the horizon? Any one know if that's possible? Don't see why apple would not update the 12.9 ASK to include the new features of the 10.5 ASK?
