Anyone else waiting on the upcoming release of the iPad Pro 2 12.9". Do you think it is worth waiting until March/April 2016?

Yes I'm waiting. Sometimes it's not worth waiting, especially if you really need to be productive right now. But it's only a couple months, so the wait is worth it for me. I'm curious to see what updates to the 12.9" & 9.7" ipad pros Apple will make....not to mention the rumored bezel-less 10.5" iPad pro! Yup. Worth the wait for me.

There are multiple discussions on the topic already, the latest probably the "wish list for iPad Pro 2" on this very same forum. I'm sure at this stage more than 2 people are waiting for the rumoured updates in March.

HELL YEAH . Absolutely worth it (A10X processor,quad core, according to rumors it will be first chip to use 10nm technology, also, Apple may increase the RAM in the upcoming models,. For what I have read the 12.9 could get 6GB of RAM, while the smaller one 3GB)
I am waiting!!!!!!!
I will buy it in the first day!!!
I Will upgrade to the IPad Pro 2 12.9
I hope they include a rose gold , matte black and jet black color

Absolutely, iOS is evolving so quickly, the new device is going to be designed for iOS 11 and who knows what amazing features it will have.

The other thing is the hardware, it will likely be at least twice as quick, with true tone, better battery, and possibly a better screen. We are only 3 months away from finding out, you have got to wait!

It's going to be designed for the OS it ships with. Not that there's a huge difference in the last 2 IOS versions when it comes to the iPad anyway.
Wether it's going to be twice as quick (as what precisely?) is questionable, the new iPhone 7 is also not twice as quick as its predecessors.

...keeping in mind that is simply rumor and wishful thinking at this point.

I guarantee that no iPad will get 6GB RAM in 2017.

I guess what surprises me by those who are holding out is the implication that somehow the current models aren't sufficient or at the very least beginning to be taxed by the current version of iOS. For any functionality limitations (real or perceived), the bottleneck is iOS itself... not the iPad hardware.

Those who who are waiting missed out on some terrific deals on the 12.9 iPad Pro. $150-$175 off sales are nothing to sneeze at... except that some did. :eek: :D

You are a master of guesses! Why not simply guess on the date too? ;)

Yep I'm getting a 12.9 Pro for Christmas. My original Air is starting to slow down, and I am starting back school in January. I decided to get the pencil as well for class so I'm excited. I got around $150 off a 128gb IPP and pencil right before Thanksgiving. I've been patiently waiting for Christmas morning. I possible could have waited, but who knows just how big of an upgrade the 12.9 will receive? I got a decent deal and I needed a Christmas gift so there you go. A new IPP. :)

I am, the specs of the 9.7 is all I'm asking for, along with more RAM, + A10

I'm waiting. Curious to see what upgrades will come to the iPad pros...and if the rumored 10-5" bezel-less ipad pro will be announced as well. If so, should be a hard decision to make between the 3 choices! But I can understand if anyone buys the current ipad pro. I think they are great. I'm still squeezing some life out of my iPad mini 3. Can't wait to be able to use the Apple pencil tho.

Though the version 1 iPP's are fully hardware capable and I don't fault anyone that buys one for X-Mass, especially at the discounts being offered, for me it's just too close to Refresh time to warrant not waiting. Also, I always buy the most up to date and capable computer that I can afford at the time just for future proofing. The A9X with 4Gb ram is plenty now but I'll be more than happy to have an A10(X?) with 4Gb(6?) ram for whatever 2017 brings to iOS.

The latest rumor claims that the A10X will have 6GB of RAM +quad core processor . Versus A9X ( dual core ,4GB of ram)

Not only am I waiting for the Pro2 12.9" to come, but I'm waiting for it to go on-sale also before I buy.

So we're asking about a 4-5 month wait -after- Apple unveils it before I buy. I refuse to pay full price on any iPad nowadays.

If the A10X chip like the A10 fusion, then it won't really be true "quad-core". It'll probably be 40% faster than the A9X, just like the A10 fusion is over the A9.

But don't keep your hopes up for more RAM, at least not in the 12.9" model, since only that device has 4GB of RAM. Why in the world would they increase it?
As much as I think it is silly to think that the 12.9 iPad Pro will get a RAM bump to 6GB in March, if someone is determined to wait for it, they'll get no argument from me... but... when they use rumors (like 6GB RAM) to persuade others to wait as well, then I think they're doing a disservice to those people.

That's very true. If anything, people should be looking at a future redesign as a reason to hold on buying one now, not a model that'll look exactly the same but just have updated specs and the nifty features found in the 9.7" model.

Possibly for better multitasking in case Apple makes improvements on that front. One thing to keep in mind, as far as I'm aware, iOS still doesn't have a storage backed virtual memory.

That said, I think I'd love to see what battery life improvement A10 will bring to the iPad line. Best battery life I've had was iPad 4 and it seems every model after, it gets just a wee bit shorter.

Yeah, it's time for the battery to improve. I'm positive it will, since the iPhone 7 got 2 hours, so I can see the iPad getting that as well.

Maybe for future iOS updates and for future iPad features ( which Will be exclusive to the iPad Pro 2)

The A10X will be a lot better that A10 .
