Just got my ipad pro 128gb lte. Screen is awesome, big, clear, with nice speakers. Battery life is good with great performance. But the screen layout is just soooooo ugly on this big guy. Still 4x5??? and with small icon?!!! Come on! For a "pro" product targeted artist and designer, and you made this ugly layout interface???

I wish Apple and ios gave us a little more leeway when it comes to various customisations without resorting to jailbrake. Custome graphical and UI tweaks are hardly threatening. Surely they could soften up in this respect some time in the future.

Meh. Well I am a Android Fan boy and an Apple noob, with this being my first iFruit device. Meh I kinda like the screen layout how I have mine setup...

'course you know how it is when you had your first girlfriend.. You just thought she was awesome and no one else could top her...

I suppose since I dont have any prior knowledge of ipads i guess it does not bother me...

Agreed. It seems like a lot of negative space on the screen. (Which isn't the end of the world with a good wallpaper I guess..)

I bet an iOS update will change that. The thing is...iOS 9 works on iPhone 5/S, 6/s & 6+/6S+. The 6/S series brought an extra row of icons to the home screen. I don't see why it can't be an option with iPad Pro.

I love it, I can see more of my custom wallpaper. Icons are not that interesting to look at. imo
I wish the icons were smaller on my Air 2 for that reason.

sorry if I misunderstood you, if you are seeing small icons then goto settings then display and then select Zoomed view it will look so nice. Try it

try the zoomed view is display settings then you wont see the lot of space on screen
