So I really thought the new 9.7″ iPad Pro would be what finally sold me, but between listening to so many podcasters gush about the 12.9″ iPad Pro, and seeing how amazing the split view/multitasking is in person, I’m not so sure anymore.
I definitely like the size and weight of the smaller, 9.7″ model, and it’s unquestionably the better size for reading in bed. But split view isn’t as incredible, and it lacks the fast-charging with the 29W USB-C adapter.
Regardless, thanks to the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, I’m definitely tempted to just forgo a desktop computer altogether for a iPad Pro.
Please apple, just give us a compiler/Xcode for iOS at WWDC this year. While you’re at it, local, encrypted backups without iTunes (e.g. To a flash drive using the new USB to lightning adapter) would be great too.
Now to find a purse large enough (but still stylish!) to carry around such a monster of a tablet.
