lytbob, 15 Apr 2016can the ipad pro be used as a stand alone phone? Not asking about linking or forwarding from a... moreYou cannot make regular GSM phone calls with the ipad pro, you can only make voice calls using apps. I have an ipad pro 9.7 LTE that I carry around everywhere as my daily driver phone using voice calls with apps(i dont carry a separate smartphone). I use the app fongo for my calls and texts, although there are other apps on the app store like talkatone that provides similar service. If you make a lot of calls I wouldn't recommend using an ipad and voip apps to make calls since the call quality is mostly dependant on your LTE or WiFi connection but if you are like me and don't make a lot of calls then using an ipad as a phone shouldn't be too much of a problem.
I'm considering getting the 2nd or 3rd generation 12.9" ipad pro next year to use as a humongous phone lol although it might be a little bit too big even for a crazy big phone lover like me lol.
Jimbob, 12 Apr 2016No, it sucks and in my opinion, get the other oneThose all are mad who say that it is bad or it sucks. This is the best iPad ever and the greatest iPad, better than any laptop or tablet. I don't recommend iPad Air 2 owners to upgrade for it. In my opinion, if any Apple user wants to upgrade his/her device, wait for next 2-3 generations because then only you will be able to enjoy and experience new features. I had a ver because then only you will be able to enjoy and experience new features. I had upgraded from iPad 2 (2nd generation), and therefore I love the new iPad Pro. In my opinion, people with the iPad Air and older generations should make the upgrade to the iPad Pro because it's simply outstanding and excellent and awesome and no Apple purchase will make you regret it, and never. Love iPad Pro.
can the ipad pro be used as a stand alone phone? Not asking about linking or forwarding from a iphone, stand alone make calls from a Ipad LTE.

Nav, 29 Mar 2016Should I buy an iPad pro witj apple pencil or iPhone 6s plus?Well t depends on what you have if you have an iPhone 6 don't make the switch but if you have any other iPad just switch over to the pro
smi, 20 Mar 2016Can I use all network sims any country or just use in USA or UK ???You can use any country's Sim Inside. But remember it can use DATA ONLY sim. You can't make GSM Calls or Receive GSM calls from an iPad.
2 Days of Battery Timing on 4G LTE and 1 DAY FULL DAY ON CONTINUOUS HEAVY USAGE. 3 Days on WIFI. iPad Pro Rocks. :) One of the finest decisions i made in life is buying the iPad Pro.
Next 9.3 beta should restore missing Apple pencil features (navigation and selection stuff mostly) that have been missing since 9.2.1
9.3 betas allow using night mode display, that shifts colour balance away from blue light spectrum that is assosiated with daylight and being awake. Research shows that less light exposure prior to bed allows for a deeper sleep/better nights rest.
Okay, I got the Pencil.
Vs a stylus on the Wacom enabled Samsung Notes...
Sure the Note 4 series lags a little with refresh rate/digitising. On the whole still very impressive...
But why bring up the Pencil on the Pro forum??
Oh man oh man oh man oh man.
Having a surface this big WITH Apples control over ALL facets of hardware and software design is a win.
Shading with the side edge of the pencil tip is nice, and the 240hz sampling means drawing super fast circles actually render to screen as circles (writing is actually cursive).. but the real win is the large size of the device that you can do these things with.
I have several wacoms at varying price points in the house to use.
I stopped using them for artistry and more as just mousing surfaces after I got my Galaxy Note. Drawing onto the screen was awesome. (I had owned many stylus devices previously but they are in no way the same thing)...
So, a tablet sized drawing surface?
Not a lot of software doing handwriting conversion... Something I thought Apple would have had onboard. (Newton owners from circa 1993 rejoice)
There is software by some ex Apple staffers that allow users to screen pair the Pro with other Apple computers. Makes me want to get some of my Apple desktop hardware up and running to play with this cool feature (I doubt I would go back to Linux/Windows).
Bloody Apple ecosystem!! I can see myself considering iPhones in future (something that never even hit my radar previously) Airdrop etc and other Apple ways of doing things gain traction in an all Apple environment.
Anyhow the pencil is so very cool. So very far from being a Stylus needed for using a tiny device (Jobs would be 100% behind it)
Whilst I thought I would use my Notes screen for fun art stuff (my daughter does). The small screen is the killer. Even the smaller wacoms feel very limiting to creative input.
Whether digitiser size affects design, I cannot say, but unlike my 5.6" Note, writing sentences of text on this tablet is very doable.
Until now, a lot of handwriting mini devices want us to write words over where we just wrote words. Being able to flow on, natually across the whole surface in whatever 'font size' we wish is just soo cool.
War hammer game is kick arse use of the pencil.. I think having my fat fingers in the way of the screen would be annoying. The pencil works well.
I do not like how some of this first generation pencil software makes the heavy pressure option so heavy. Makes me want a glass screen protector, and fears of NIBs wearing out faster than necessary.
Not having a convenient case for the pencil or way to attach it is strange.
For the money Apple ask in my local market (118 US dollars), I would expect a svelte hardwaring case to be included. (That even $20 pens typically come with).
Recommend Faithless as the background musician on this here Pro.
Studio engineered excellence, smart and savvy lyrics, respect for religious views etc, and beaut panning of sounds make the speakers/sound output really shine.
Try "Back to Mine" Bug powder Dust. (Bomb the Bass Kruder and dorfmeister remix)
Happy using people's.
Having lived on gsmarena for many many years, Apple forum goers, exemplified here, are obviously too busy out in the real world getting on with living. Not violently defending their brand loyalties in silly forums with trolls who have no interest to understand how great it is to have a product be reliable and just help us work/get stuff done.
Admittedly, I'm feeling kinda lonely here with no one to banter with! (Grins)
