    I've got mixed feeling I love the 12.9 screen. I use the iPad Pro as my primary device. The 9.7 features are great. Just not 100% sure I can go go back to a smaller screen. It's the same issue I have with iPhone 6S Plus. But I wish the features on the 9.7 were available for the 12.9.
    What features are you referring to? The mildly useful true tone display? Less ram? Smaller screen? Or the better cameras?

    Not sure about where you are but over here in the UK, people who use their iPads as cameras outside are often laughed at as it looks ridiculous! Why would anyone use an iPad camera to actively go out and take pictures? The camera is the only real upgrade I can see with the 9.7" iPad Pro, I'd happily have the new front facing camera but for the amount I use apps like FaceTime and Skype, it's not a bid deal.

    IMO, the only thing people will really be choosing between these two iPads, is the screen. If you want the big screen "most" won't even consider the new 9.7.

    Each to their own though, and there maybe people that do actively take their iPads out for photography!! Crazy

    It is primarily screen size, I'm in two minds after having the iPad Pro for a number of months. I do like the idea of the camera in the 9.7.

    I do agree about your comment about taking photos on the iPad.

    I guess I'm feeling like this. (http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apple) The same I feel after every Apple event.

    After playing with both the 12.9" and the 9.7" iPad Pros, there's no way I'd sell the 12.9 in lieu of the 9.7. Having said that, I did opt for the 9.7" iPad Pro, and love it, although a part of me is considering swapping it out for the larger version......We'll see.

    I love my 12.9! I enjoy the larger screen, it works better for split screen apps, however I do miss the portability and lightness of my Air 2.
    I don't think I will be getting the baby Pro anytime soon maybe in the future. I will stick to the12.9 Pro and hope the next version has 4K video recording and true tone display!

    How much do you pay your data per month?

    Data is included in the $1350 over 24mths at $56 a month. Data is shared with our phones so the 2gb is added to the 13gb data pool.

    Traded out my iPad Pro 9.7 for a iPad Pro 12.9 yesterday. Happier with the screen size paired to the productivity of the pro, so far. Media consumption on the 12.9 is incredible. And yes the speakers on the pro 12.9 are louder and sound 100% better than the 9.7.

    I considered it a good deal this past weekend, but opted to keep my 9.7" iPad Pro. I've grown accustomed to it and really enjoy using it. In fact, I just left the Verizon Store where I purchased a pre-paid SIM card for it that'll expire in 2 months. Anyway, congratulations on getting your 12.9" iPad Pro. Enjoy it...

    The 13" fits my use cases too well. I want it for big color reference PDFs, comic reading, and on-the-go writing. The 9.7 keyboard is just too cramped for me. I don't want a true laptop (have one for work and find them soul-crushing) and I have a last gen Fire HDX 8.9 for my portable sized tablet. That's a long way of saying that I won't be giving up my 13" iPad and don't really see the need to replace my Fire with a smaller 9.7 Pro (smaller than the 13, not the Fire).

    I love the 12.9" size so there is no way I'm going back to a 9.7" sure the true tone display is nice on the Baby Pro but I'm a sucker so I know I'm buying the upgraded 12.9" this fall.

    I had a 12.9 then switched tots the 9.7. Big mistake indeed. Now back with a brand new 12.9. Should have never thought it would be better..

    What do people who own the iPad Pro 9.7 inch think of the display, especially the wider colour gamut? Experience from testing (not necessarily of the iPad) suggest this is not always well liked by users.

    It definitely does.. Although I wished the 12.9" Pro came with TruTone Display and a better front facing camera.

    But when that baby iPad Pro feels slower with future major OS updates, I'd much rather had the big Pro with 4 GB's of RAM than a from facing camera that I never use or true tone display. I'll take performance.
