    Default Thinking of buying one

    I really don't use my laptop much anymore. Occasionally check email. I seem to use my iPhone for most everything.

    I seems to me that the 12.9" iPP will be a perfect fit for me. Great device for email, surfing, etc. 99% of what I do. I will still have my plex server for any of only things that may come up.

    I'm thinking about the new 256gb version. Space black. Very nice looking. I currently have the 64gb phone and haven't come close to filling it but the big iPP will probably be for movies and tv frequently.

    I do have a couple of question though.

    Can you back up your iPhone to the iPP like you can with iTunes on the pc?

    I never owed a iPad before. Is restoring dfu mode done the same as an iPhone? I like to run betas

    How many apps are optimized for iPP

    I'm sure more questions will come up

    iPads function like Giant iPhones. So DFU works the same way, you cannot back up your iPhone to your iPad. However you can use iCloud for your backups.
