    Which combination of iPhone and iPad would best suit you today?

    Option One:
    First Generation 32GB iPad and a new 64GB iPhone 6+


    Option Two:
    Second generation 64GB iPad Air and a 32GB iPhone3GS?

    Definitely option 1. I have an iPad 3 but I never bring it outside, just use it indoors for miscellaneous things like YouTube videos. I use my phone a lot more than my iPad.

    How could one possible enjoy using 3GS after using an iPad Air? Performance slowdown on the gps would be frustrating

    Option One since I'll be using my phone more.

    I'd have made this a poll, but I'm afraid I am the only one who would choose the better iPad over the better iPhone.

    I had the following combo

    32gb cellular iPad 1 - 16gb iPhone 4

    32gb tmo iPad air - 16gb iPhone 4

    32gb tmo iPad air - 64gb iPhone 6

    Beyond touch ID, I don't have a lot of desire to update my iPad. This one works great. That said, I would choose the iPad update over the phone... Except my kids are using a 3GS and um, the battery is shot and it needs help.

    SOOO, I might have to update the phone to at least a 4s/5.

    Basically, I use my iPad more each day than my phone, and I use my phone more as a phone than anything else. So the iPad would come first.

    I'd go with 1. Phone is more important since it's more mobile and fits in a pocket. And no... iPad mini does not count as able to fit in a pocket. At least to me.

    Option 1

    No one wants to use a 3GS in 2014. No one really wants to use an iPad 1 either but the phone is far more important than the tablet.

    I'm not happy about either. I would take 1 but can I at least have an iPhone 6? Plus is to big for me.


    It's ok a mod will make it so you don't need to face your fears lol. (Cough cough mods we need poll) ;)

    I'd take Option 1 and then use the First Gen iPad as a lunch tray.

    Come on guys! I think you're being a bit tough on the 3GS.
    It was a terrific iPhone!

    Awesome 3G unboxing photo. Definitely option 1. I have a mini 2 and 6+ and I'm pondering about the iPad Air 2 since my iPad 3 was on the heavy side and I stopped using it once I got the mini since it's lighter. iPad Air definitely weighs less now but unless someone buys it for me on Xmas, I will wait until iPad Air 3 since it may match 6 series phone design.

    Me :

    2013 :
    iPhone 5s 16GB + iPad 4 LTE 16GB
    iPhone 5s 16GB + iPad Air LTE 16GB

    2014 :
    iPhone 6 16GB + iPad Air LTE 32GB

    16GB is enough for me on the phone (I have about 6GB free).
    I stream all of my music from SoundCloud (Unlimited data LTE - awesome :cool:)

    On the iPad I store a lot of games, productivity apps and media. The tablet goes everywhere with me (I have about 5GB free).

    Pretty happy.

    What's next ?
    2015 :
    iPhone 6S 16GB + iPad Air 3 LTE 64GB
