I recently got the ipp 12.9” it will be the last iPad I ever purchase. Period. Don’t care what improvements (unless it could do holographic presentations) it has. Perfect size for a presentation or watching all my digital movies.
Something really new with Apple is impossible. What was new from the original iPhone on ? Nothing. I hope something new is coming, proving me wrong. What is exciting in something thinner with pixels so dense you don't see them (make gpu struggle and battery down) WHERE ARE REALLY GOOD AND "THINK DIFFERENT" THINGS ??? MacOS has bugs and new sluggishness, I wanted to love the iPhoneX but I don't. Apple mouses are still crap. Keyboards were goos when beige (still work) and then what ? My ipad mini 4 is fine, and my 7+ is great. I just need a new battery, and I keep it. I want batteries that are insulated from cpugpu heat, I want interchangeable batteries, I want transparent rollable tablet, holographic 3d things you can grab and move, projected keyboard made of light, etc. Incremental = zero risk = crap. DO SOMETHING APPLE.
Contrary to popular vote, it has to be option 1 for me. I love minimalism and I don't care too much about the notch, because like you mentioned, there is more than enough space on top. Developers should just be mindful about safe areas and ensure that applications can scale to devices with notches like iPhone X.
I have the iPad Pro 12.9 inch and I LOVE it!!! I also have the iPhone X and after having the iphone 4, 5, 6plus, and 7 plus, I think i liked my 7 plus the best. The X doesn’t have that “home” butting and I reall miss it!!!. I wish apple would come out with an updated ipencil!!
I personally hope the iPad goes more of the way of Microsoft’s Surface. That it would be actually a complete Mac OS system, or near that to keep the apps. Since I am increasingly using my iPad to do work and school work, my iPad is taking the place of my Mac book pro in many respects. Implementing a stronger processor, more in-depth functionality(like an actual pc) and increasing the screen again to something close to the Mac book 13”, this could be the point where Mac books and iPads start to merge. Plus it’ll bring screen touch to Mac books and who hasn’t been waiting for that. Call it the iBook. If there’s a god in heave make this so!
What about wireless charging on new iPad's ? Any chance that also comes next, or is that still 1-2 yrs away ? re: bezel. option 2. Have the X, no notch is preferred. Although the 1st is stunning to look at.
Option 2. Easier to work with cases, and to not have your fingers block part of the screen. Also, it think no bezel could effect some gestures, especially with case edges. Additionally, I don’t see much advantage to that smidgen more screen space.
A guy came into our video shop and recorded a 30 GB QuickTime file on our studio system. He wanted transferred to his iPad pro to edit. It was almost impossible to transfer, as there his only USB(ipad flavor) device could not handle a file that big, and we could transfer it over to him on our network because the iPad "Pro" has no file system for our network to move a file to. We had to convert it down to a less than "Pro" H.264 file for him to work with.
What is Pro about this? Price?
