    I'd love to consider the purchase of an iPad Pro 2 12.9 inch. I have a feeling that the A10X chip will improve battery life by an extreme amount for basic tasks due to the quad core design. It might rival the iPad 4 (for example) when it comes to those types of tasks. I'm hoping and praying Apple is working on a major IOS upgrade that targets the iPad and significantly improves its ability to work for productivity.

    The iPad has so much potential!

    Very good question. Talk about buyer insecurity!

    I currently have the iPad Pro 12.9" ans when the iPad Pro 2 comes out I'll probably get it and give the iPad Pro to a family member. I'm just not sure what Apple will be doing with the iPad Pro 2, there are rumours that Apple are going to be adding more "Pro" features, such as being able to annotate within apps like Safari, mail and so on (which would be great) but they are software updates, I really wonder what they will do with the iPad Pro 2.

    The IPP 12.9 is still an outstanding performance device. I enjoy using it daily basis. I think, it will have to be a significant features update for me to upgrade to a 2. Who am i kidding? yeah, it is very likely that I will upgrade... :)

    I'm just wondering what more they will add to it. Most of the updates i want are software based, i like that they are rumoured to be working on annotation within other apps, such as Safari, Mail, Messages and so on.

    I have a 12.9.

    Most important stuff would be with software upgrade, but with ipad pro 2 device I really wouldn't mind:

    - Lighter
    - Smaller bezels
    - Improved display (I think 4K is now a standard)

    There is other stuff but the above is what would make me buy a new one. Even with no software upgrade.

    12.9 too big for me

    10.5? now that would be tempting. Although i would still keep my 9.7 i reckon

    For me, the 12.9 iPad Pro is the only device I wish Apple made thinner and lighter. I love the screen size, but occasionally it does feel a bit big and heavy. Even so, I'm highly likely to wait for the iPP 3 before I upgrade. This thing is a beast that is held back more by software than hardware.

    I will. I have an iPP 12.9, but it gives me an excuse to go up to the 256GB option!

    too early to tell, i only am just playing with the iPad Pro 12.9-inch as present... If i don't like it, then i'm not gonna like the 10-inch version either
