I think its funny how people here who settle for substandard products from Samsung, Microsoft and their ilk just do not get Apple. They are not about market share. The Ipod was laughed at for being $399 when it came out, it was definitely a niche product, being only available for mac users, but see what happened. Myself as a musician, and others, have been long awaiting a quality tablet that has full sized "paper" on the screen. My whole church band had pros their first week out. After owning Samsung phones and tablets for several years, hating on Apple like the folks here, and then switching to Apple, I would never go back. Apple stuff is more integrated, reliable, and simple. I learned why Steve Jobs scoffed at imagined "innovation" which is nothing more than adding more layers of "stuff." Managing my sheet music on Samsung tablets was complicated, had too many steps, and was too much like a laptop. This is why I love the Pro. I don't want a laptop. I want a big tablet that is the size of paper that works simply and well.
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2015Agree. Zero innovation. All they do is just copy Samsung tablet and thats it. Im not surprised... moreI cannot believe there are morons who still think Apple copies Samsung, when Samsung lost patent suits to Apple, not vice versa, and Apple invented the smartphone with touchscreen interface. Samsung's phones are based on stolen software and technology from Apple. Samsung does not innovate. That add "cute features" which android morons mistake for innovation. Samsung has never innovated a single thing.
ipods and ipads were niche products when they first came out, and then they weren't.
Jarret, 29 Oct 2015Recently iPads don't have innovations anymoreAgree. Zero innovation. All they do is just copy Samsung tablet and thats it. Im not surprised no one buys this. You can get something similar from Samsung at a far cheaper price. Their "sold separately" strategy totally not working.
Its like why do kids in university have $1500 macbook pros when a $500 ipad with keyboard would suffice. They simply just want the best. Its ego driven consumerism.
Lol this is grasping at straws. iPad Pro is a very niche product so we don't really know what and how big the market really is.
Insidious kid, 28 Oct 2015wats d probel with that
I don't hv any prob.i am just saying " a phone can't be a status symbol ".
Bcoz u r having iPhone your status is not going up.N if u don't hv iPhone your status will not go down.
Methinks it's also the general perception that iOS are the same on any device and are developed and maintained primarily for consumer use (multimedia, social networking, games, etc.) rather than professional use. We all have this experience with iPhones and the iPads. Anything with less than MacOS isn't truly a working device. I'm NOT saying it's true, but that's what people perceive... unless you can get millions of buyers to actually test them.
Apple might want to try a tablet (or convertible) version of the MacBook. A MacOS device that becomes an iPad cousin.

Acer-Predator, 27 Oct 2015Jesus christ again article about apple product and nearly 100 coments.. why!?!? What the hel... moreand the comment mostly from ihater... what u expecting for... because they more interested about apple than their lovely android
Jarret, 28 Oct 2015Apple's iPad getting expensive. No more iPads, go to more innovations & worth for money -... moreYou probably cant afford an ipad mini in the first place.. If you want real value, go with asus or acer or nexus. Samsung sells re packaged tabs or downgraded specs tab every year, how can they be worth your money? The latest Tab s2, which is inferior to tab s1 and most importantly, worse than the one year old ipad air 2, is priced identically to ipads.
