    So I'm planning on buying the new iPad Air. My first choice was a 32gb LTE model but since then I'm not %100 sure I need LTE now. I would instead get a 64gb wifi one. The was planning getting the LTE to use at work, on road trips and where there is no wifi. But I was thinking I could just hotspot my 5S if I really need wifi during those times. Or even get a normal hotspot. Other than that my ipads normally stay at home. So the question is to LTE or not LTE. Please help me pick. Thanks!

    I believe LTE gives you GPS, if that matters to you.

    You could also make and receive calls with 3rd party apps.

    I've been asking the same question! What do I want more LTE or Storage? Think of it this way...you can always hotspot but you can't add storage. HOWEVER if you are on Verizon they will take $100 off LTE ipads for a 2 year contract. This route you are stuck paying for LTE every month even if you don't use it but it's only $10 per month. You have to decide if that's acceptable to you or not.

    Good luck in deciding and let us know what you eventually choose!

    Will the LTE version be out the same day as wifi?
