    Not sure what is going to get more use yet, this or my air 2. I didn't get the keyboard yet cause I have a MacBook Pro. Still undecided. This screen is gorgeous. Do you all recommend the keyboard and pencil? Also, what apps take advantage of this huge screen?

    I really like the keyboard. Cannot stand typing on a touch screen. I need the feedback to know I am hitting the right key.

    The pencil is amazing to use. Unfortunately I have no artistic skills but in other threads you can see some of the amazing creations that are being done on IPP with the Apple Pencil.

    I have the apple keyboard and pencil and now I couldn't do without either. The keyboard and Silcone back cover is an amazing combo for me. Pencil is great that I can barely put it down and has got me into sketches when I have never bothered before. I'm crap but i can only get better ha

    I can't seem to find the right hub for that. The app section of this forum is ok. Reddit is solid and I've just been using the App Store essentials and such to get an idea.

    It's just so big I'm not so sure about it yet. Did you all eventually adjust and find the best way to use it?

    Believe it is a sister site to this one as there are links to it at the bottom of the site.

    The iPad Pro is too small for me. Would like 15 inch.

    I think you should get a keyboard for your iPP. Logitech keyboard is the best. I am looking at Logitech Key to Go it will work with all iDevices include Apple TV 4.

    Love the keyboard from Apple, Logitech seems too heavy to me.

    That Logitech keyboard is a monstrosity. Super heavy and bulky but some can deal with that for a backlit keyboard combo.

    The new magic keyboard by Apple is fantastic combo and easily portable. I use it with the Apple silicon and Smart Cover combo.

    The apple keyboard is great! You don't always have to type on it but if you need it it's there and makes a nice cover

    Any of you guys use your Pro "naked", without a case? Just trying tonight and liking how light(er) it is.

    I have tried it a few times but after selling my air 2 and not getting full value due to a few scratches I will always use a case now.

    I have a very thin inexpensive smart "case" (covers front and rear), just to keep down any scratches. I love it, it's light and still offers a minor degree of protection. I use a Bluetooth Apple keyboard, the old one before the magic keyboard, and have that keyboard in an origami case that works awesome with the IPP (even left in the smart case) when I need to use an external keyboard. All of this is carried in a messenger type bag that I've had a few years and has carried all my past IPads/keyboards/phones/cables. I have an inexpensive film screen protector that looks and feels just like the screen glass (just put this on to protect from any grit scratches that could occur from using outdoors).
    I really love my set up, sure there's a ton of cases that offer great protection (but are bulky) and there are many keyboards that function as cases, but I really wanted the feel/weight/etc. of the IPP with just a tiny bit of protection from scratches.

    It took me about two weeks to bond with my iPP. But now, it seems normal to use it. And I wouldn't give up these speakers!

    The Apple silicone case and Smart Keyboard are protective and give the iPP a real luxury feel.

    And just this morning I was reading one of my art magazines on it--gorgeous!

    Me too. I also have the Logitech Create (was going to send it back but missed the return window). You get a better typing experience on the Logitech but it makes it too heavy. The Apple keyboard would be perfect if it was backlit. I can't understand why they didn't make it backlit? Seems an easy thing to do.
