Now that we have seen what is to come in iPadOS, would now be a good time to treat myself to a new iPad, or should I wait?
I have been using an iPad Air 2 since they were launched, so about 4 and half years and it works absolutely fine.
However I have been looking at the iPad Pro releases over the last two years and have been very tempted, but knowing the limitations of iOS 11 and then 12 I hesitated.
An Apple Pencil would be a definite purchase and more than likely a Smart Folio Keyboard. I use a Belkin Bluetooth keyboard with my current iPad and it is very heavy and bulky.
I want to type more on it. I want to use a pencil to mark things up. I want to draw. I want to take it to work everyday and use it in the coffee shop (I drive to work and carry a huge backpack size/weight doesn’t bother me too much).
I’m yet undecided on whether an 11 will suffice or whether I should go for the larger one - I need to visit the store and physically try it.
But getting to my actual question, do you think it is a good time to make the plunge or could there be another iPad Pro released soon that I should wait for?
I know there’s always a newer model around the corner, but I’m not one for changing each year. I want 3/4/5 good years of use out of it.
I’ve been quite good at upgrading recently, I’m “managing” on an iPhone 8Plus, a MBP and a MacMini from 2014, and another MacMini from 2012.
