    Its 2:28am. Kind of bored. Figured Id write a thread debating whether I should upgrade my iPad Air 2 (64GB Sprint LTE) to an iPad Pro 9.7 (128GB or 256GB Sprint LTE). I carry my iPad everywhere and use it about 3 hours a day Id say. More media consumption then anything. Kind of just want the newest gadget! HAHA!

    Ok... useless rant over.

    Do you think you would use the Pencil a lot? If not, I wouldn't upgrade.

    I would definitely upgrade. Newer tech is sweet.

    Fully cognizant that the iPad is a want rather than a need, the only criteria I have is can you easily afford it? If yes, by all means go ahead and upgrade.

    What changes from the air 2 do you find most appealing?

    Coming from an iPad 3, the weight and ability to run without lag are the main things I notice in everyday usage, but are already present in the air 2.

    The reduced reflectivity is does feel a little nicer on the eyes, I'm sure along with the true tone white balance correction.

    I honestly don't get the fuss about the speakers. Like, they still sound like mobile device speakers. They're fine, but heck so is the speaker in my iPhone 6, and the iPad 3 I came from. I tend to use headphones anyway. :)

    Id rather have the camera upgrade in my phone :p

    For me the critical feature is the pencil support. It was the deciding feature for me and so far has lived up to its promise.

    If you use your iPad a lot and like the newest gadgets, then get it. If it's not a cost issue and it's something you enjoy then why not?

    If cost isn't an issue and you want the latest and greatest toy, then why shouldn't you treat yourself.

    But honestly, if your primary use is just consuming media, your just as well served with your iPad Air 2.

    If you aren't going to use the new features, I probably wouldn't upgrade. However, if you need more storage, that would definitely be a viable excuse to upgrade.
