A few months ago, I began to feel my iPad Mini 4 was too small. I knew an iPad refresh was on the way, so I waited till 2017 9.7 debuted to see what to do. I didn’t like that the 9.7 iPad didn’t have the quad speakers. For a device that is supposed to be "simply fun", I though that was a huge omission. I also did not want to pay $900 for a new iPad pro, but I really wanted one. I have a 2015 13” MPB with 16GB RAM, the iPad is a couch device (sorry Tim). I bought a second-hand iPad Pro 9.7 128 Verizon, for $567. I thought it was a good deal. Even now, I can’t replicate that price on third party sites. I knew a new iPad Pro would be coming out, but I had also read it would be more expensive, and the old IP P 9.7 would be canceled, not reduced in price. Both of those panned out. I also had read the IPP 12.5 doesn’t have a lot of optimized apps, an issue which I hypothesized would effect the 10.5 also. Reading the forums here, it seems like the primary difference between the 9.7 and 10.5 IPP is that the 9.7 might not benefit from all the three-app multitasking of the 10.5. Is it possible this is a limitation of the beta? It is always sad to see your new technology become old, but to be honest.. I do not think this update was that momentous from a hardware perspective, and that I got my IPP at 30% discount makes me feel better about it. The A10X is a smaller upgrade than A8X to A9X. Agree or disagree? iPad Air 2 -> IPP 9.7 was a larger update than 9.7 IPP - 10.5. Agree or disagree? Should I have waited and paid full price for IPP2?
