God yeah itís so good. I probably would buy an air if I was buying now but I do like the 12.9Ē screen.

Yeah I don't plan on upgrading my 2 year old iPad Pro but I'm looking forward to seeing whats new and honestly how Clip Studio Paint works on it.

the 2018 model is still pretty much perfect. I might buy a newer Smart Keyboard to replace the beat up one I got now but the new iPad would have to be considerably better for me to consider it.

Iím on the 2016 10.5 iPad Pro. Gotta give it , it still works really well, with the battery not being as good as it was.

I think this may be the year I upgrade here.


My ďissueĒ is Iíve held out for a few years on upgrading my iPad and my 2012 Mac air, so now of course Iím starting to want to upgrade both. Iíll probably long term upgrade both, and just see which one I do first (aka I may not be preordering this iPad just yet).

I wish Apple would fix the naming on the iPad Pros, it's a mess and completely impossible to tell what people have unless you cross-reference a wikipedia page.

I have the 9.7 Pro. The battery is definitely showing its age. Been holding off getting the Air until I see the min-LED and what new chip will be in these. Hopefully the price difference won't too stupid.




It will be.

I have the original iPad Pro and itís still performing great, bar some recent small hiccups - I donít feel a reason to upgrade yet other than a better Pencil experience.

Hello IPad thread. Are we pretty confident that a new Pro and maybe a new Mini will be announced on the 20th?

Any guess as to long after the announcement they will hit retail?

At the end of 2018, a study was published by London Metropolitan University showing that certain bacteria, normally present only in intestinal tracts or feces, were found on McDonald's self-service screens.




It all depends. You can typically start ordering them as soon as the store comes back up. Whether you can buy one at retail immediately after is anyoneís guess.

Either they will go on preorder when the store opens back up for a Friday release or go on preorder Friday for a release on the following Friday.

The rumor is the Pro 12.9 will have a mini LED screen, and the rumor with that is it will very much be in low supplies at first.

So probably available for preorder , but it could be the Apple device launch where it takes forever to get.

That said, I would hope, if you preordered in April, you would get one by June. The only time I saw an Apple device take that long to ship was the iPhone 6+ when it first launched in like, 2013 or 2014.

That all said, honestly whether itís available at Costco or not, you would think by June, but Apple def gets first priority. I donít know if anyone will discount a brand new Pro, is there a reason to get it at Costco if itís the same price at Apple ?

Costco usually kicks in a $50 discount but yeah I wonít bother if itís the same price.

Costco has a great return policy so if you don't have an Apple store nearby I could see that being a benefit.

Oh absolutely, thereís stuff I would want to buy at Costco if given a choice. Just pointing out for a new launch iPad, may not be worth the wait in that case.

Jumpjet, melta, jumpjet. Repeat for ten minutes or until victory is assured.

I have a bunch of specific requirements for an iPad (10.2) case, has anyone heard of one that fits this?

* Kickstand that can go into a steep angle for viewing and a shallow angle for drawing
* Holder for Apple Pencil
* No folio cover over the screen by default
* No built-in screen protector (planning to use the Paperlike screen thingie)

Went browsing for a bit but haven't been able to find something that matches.

You're probably going to have to buy something with a screen protector, peel the plastic off, and put your thing in its place.
