i think this iPad has a good battery for its size i would love it and it has a good screen resoultion
It seems that the 2nd gen 12.9 inch ipad pro might be delayed until the fall of this year. But it might release on time in the spring of this year still. Got my money ready to buy this ipad since my 9.7 inch ipad pro is too small for me now. Any current 12.9 inch ipad pro users know if google maps is optimized for the 12.9 inch ipad pro or not since the last time I tried google maps on the big ipad pro the app was very fuzzy and unoptimized for the larger screen?
The October 27 event has passed but apple didn't announce any new ipads, so the next time we will see updates to the ipad mini 4, pro 9.7 and the pro 12.9 is probably in the spring of 2017.
Looks like the 2nd gen 12.9 inch ipad pro won't come out until spring 2017 instead of this year as I previously thought. I guess we will have to see what apple will reveal at their October 27 event. Gonna buy the 2nd gen 12.9 inch ipad pro as my 9.7 inch ipad pro feels too small now.
I love my iPad Pro. The latest update, however, messed up my iBooks display. Now instead of having a 2-page display, which makes for easier reading, there is only 1 page displayed across the entire screen. I am old enough to know that sometimes changes are made just for the sake of making the change, and not because it is needed. This latest change is going to make a tremendous difference in the amount of time I spend reading from iBooks. And I love to read. My question: if something is working properly, why change it?
Ahmed, 19 Sep 2016Can you install whatsapp since you have cellular model?Whatsapp does not work on ipads. I think you can use Whatsapp Web using the browser on your ipad but there is no Whatsapp on the apple app store if you are using the ipad.
The 12.9 inch and 9.7 inch versions of the iPad Pro have 32,128,and 256GB internal storage
How come you only write 32 and 128GB?
Ashran, 31 Aug 2016Today I'm Going to Buy a Ipad Pro .> I've got one and I love it. I've got the first generation (this one), 12.9 inches, with 128GB, Wi-Fi and cellular model. And each new model keeps getting better with the specs and features.
jmahon, 10 Aug 2016Product physically broke in first week. It is built to eggshell standards that do not live up... moresounds like a black mailing comment that is not even true. You dropped your tablet, and also the sound speaker is not working? No manufacturers guarantees customers dropping the device and working NOBODY. if you have an issue with your tablet apple will gladly fix or replace under their warranty. Customer negligence.
or your just making things up to make apple sound bad.
jmahon, 10 Aug 2016Product physically broke in first week. It is built to eggshell standards that do not live up... moreLets be real; the microphone issue on your iphone is a fault any manufacturer can have and would easily have been (likley still) able to be covered by warranty.
With regards to dropping a 700gram tablet,.. of course it could break.
Watch the gorilla glass five videos and see how they have to land the screens to survive a high fall 'most of the time'...
Even tough glass can break. Apple uses tough glass.
Yes, you dropped it, and 'yes' I feel for you; but it wasn't intentional sabotage by Apple..
Product physically broke in first week. It is built to eggshell standards that do not live up to ordinary usage. The slightest drop caused the glass to crack. Design this poor is not offset by style points. If it breaks within a week, it is a $1000 piece of junk. AppleÂ‘s predatory policy is to characterize its design flaw as an Â“accidentÂ” outside of its warranty. The prior product I bought from Apple, an Iphone 6 also failed within two months, when the microphone stopped working. I will be glad when its two year contract expires so I can replace it. I will never buy another Apple product. They do not design product for the real world. They do not stand behind their product. They use the failures of their poor design as an opportunity to pick the pockets of their customers.
HumongousPhoneLover , 07 Aug 2016Hey whitedragon have app developers updated their apps to scale properly for the 12.9 inch ipa... moreMy understanding is the Metal API (Application programing interface) makes excellent use of the hardware, and it is either that, or some other software process that renders apps to the screen at native resolution.
Not sure when it came about.. i think it was ios8 (maybe 7),.. that they realised that they were not going to have only three or four resolutions across all their hardware platforms and they would need a dynamic way to handle things going forward.
So, an answer:
Yes. For modern software, everything should be pixel sharp (not interpolated scaling), and should render to the screen in native resolution (anything written for the last few iOSs')
With regards to whether the interface will suit a huge screen...
This IS something that I have seen most software update to make use of.
(I regularly read what is fixed/amended/added through incremental version changes),.. and the last nine months or so,.. more and more software has added native/direct iPAD 12.9 support and/or Pencil support.)
All first gen stuff has holes to iron out, that 'second gen' software can fix.
I have seen a few art packages refine their pencil support to allow the user to change the threshold for 100% pencil input. Which is awesome cause there was no way I was going to ever consistantly push THAT HARD to hit 100%.
It is definately getting better and iOS 10 is adding more
Eg three column email view which makes the software as good as old Microsoft Outlook (desktop PC mail software) for email viewing and managing. (And given the present state of Windows Mail, and M$ nasty forcing of people to outlook (online) mail.. I would avoid it like the plague)(based on experience of most servicing at the moment from me is to rectify mail server details because MS, having given many telcos and corporations free email server access have revoked it in an effort to get users to jump ship to MS product- it is a horrendous mess, thankyou Microsoft; you've done it again!!)
Jokes aside... iOS10 is looking sweet, 12.9" Pro screen 5.6million pixels is looking sweet.
It is a good time to buy apple shares. ;-)
whitedragon, 06 Aug 2016It would be a 'slate',.. and it would be much higher than 4k (if by Apple) iOS users!!- ... moreHey whitedragon have app developers updated their apps to scale properly for the 12.9 inch ipad pro? Is it taking very long for app developers to update their apps for the larger screen? Last time I used the 12.9 inch pro for 2 weeks some apps I used like Google maps and imdb didn't scale properly for the larger screen? I'm asking cause I'm thinking of buying a 12.9 inch pro next year when the new one comes out, I'm not sure I should upgrade if a lot of apps are not optimized for the larger screen.
Leigh the transforme, 26 Jul 2016It would be cool if apple released a 20 inch ipad pro with 4k resolution It would be a 'slate',.. and it would be much higher than 4k (if by Apple)
iOS 10 public beta four has added some wikkid messaging stuff and fixed a whole slew of little idiosyncrasies
