This has been bugging me for months: In the spring, I bought a lovely 12.9" iPad Pro. But lately I find myself more frequently using my 2018 iPad with the smaller ~9.7" display.
Why? Because it’s easier to hold.
I’m somewhat nearsighted, and for comfortable viewing, I like to hold the iPad in one hand, in portrait mode, at about chest level, about elbow-length from my chest. The 12.9" is unwieldy to hold that way for long periods. The 9.7" is comfortable.
Also, the 9.7" is a good size for thumb-typing in portrait mode.
Has anybody found a way to hold the 12.9" comfortably at chest height while sitting on the sofa?
