So get the capacity you want, and use your iPhone as a wifi hotspot for the iPad when you don't have traditional wifi available... that is if your plan with your cellular provider includes the wifi hotspot feature in your plan...if it doesn't you can see about adding it.

Well I've got T-Mobile, and as much as they are improving and have been over the years, I barely pull signal at school with my iPhone. Perhaps if I get the 6S Plus and with the 12 band, that could change. I have an iPad Air 2 LTE connected with Verizon and it's never failed me once. And before you ask, the wifi at school is horrid, something the school knows about and has been working on addressing for a while but I've always defaulted to using iPad LTE. So that's why. Perhaps a little bit of a unique situation but nonetheless I am an LTE iPad user through and through. Either way I'm getting one and may be ultimately happy I went with the higher capacity model since the apps may be much larger in size but I was really hoping for a 64GB LTE.

I just realized that as well. But considering they are only releasing a 32 and 128 and I need at least 64... I would be 'stuck' with the 128 anyways since I do use the LTE. I can also upgrade with Verizon (hopefully... the "My Verizon" site says my current iPad has an upgrade available although I've never paid an upgrade price for an iPad?)

I had T-Mobile with unlimited LTE Data for $70 ( I signed up before they hiked it $10) with a Note 3 on a payment plan $30 or so, iPad added on for $19and Jump! $10. All that for around $130
Went to Verizon and got a Note 4 payment plan $27, 10gb of data plan for $80, the fee was $15 and add on my iPad $10 for around $144 a month

I have T-Mobile with the $70 plan, add $10 JUMP and $10 match data at 5GB for my iPad Mini 3. It comes to around $115. I don't have an installment right now as I end up paying extra towards it and always pay it off early. It'll probably be around $145 or maybe a little less with the 6s.

You shouldn't need to use your iPhone as a hotspot Apple can clearly afford to make LTE more realistic in price but then again they never missed an opportunity to pick someone's wallet. Besides telling someone to use their phone as a hotspot means their phones battery will be dead all the time and they can't use it or else they need a battery pack to keep it charged.
Better off getting a MiFi that is IF you have to get the WiFi version. Still they are sticking it to customers.

Personally, I would much rather rely on LTE and a good data plan that a publicly available WiFi...
With respect to narrowing the LTE down to the maxed capacity, something tells me that Apple introduced it based on a strong correlation of users opting for topped storage and LTE combined. Would not be surprised if that were truly the case.
