I understand your feelings. I’m waiting for the next 12.9 in the hope it’s stronger etc. In many cases you can keep the same iPhone or iPad for years and you’re not really missing out as such as the changes are usually fairly small.I have an iPP 12.9 2017 but another family member uses it to watch news. Good excuse to buy a new one but if I buy an upcoming 2019 model and they release one that supports 5G in a year, I will be unhappy. I read that there is no major changes in this year’s models.
Most of us don’t, but also most of us would probably want to keep the very expensive iPad Pro for as long as possible.Do you live in a 5G market?
