    Default Finally got my new iPad Pro 9.7!!!



    Just got my new toy yesterday, and I'm loving it so far!! And I'm so glad I decided to go with a cellular model as opposed to the wi-fi only model. This is my fourth iPad (previously owned first gen iPad, third gen iPad, and second gen iPad mini) in the 6 years that it's been on the market, and this is probably the best iPad I've owned yet!! I'm so happy!!

    I know right! I've enjoyed having an iPad mini for the last 3 years, but I was glad to go back to a normal sized screen.

    I added a 128 GB cellular 9.7 Pro to my collection today. Since I get 15% off on anything I purchase from the Apple Store, it's hard to say no sometimes. Since my 12.9 Pro is wifi only, I'll likely sell that.

    IF you don't mind me asking, how do you get 15% off?

    I got the 9.7 cellular + wifi 256 GB. It's mine main computer, I've done away with my old MacBook Air. I'm currently camping in an area with really bad connection and it loads way faster than my old Air 2. Best tablet ever, everything is faster, sleeker, smoother, the pen feels completely natural, even my battery life is better. Best iPad ever.

    You're so right! Everything is faster, sleeker, and smoother. I never had the iPad Air 2, but I will say that my new iPad Pro 9.7 is miles - maybe even lightyears - ahead of the old iPads that I owned. I don't have the Apple Pencil yet, but I will in a couple of weeks. Virtual high five!! ✋

    In the 2 days I've had mine, I've been very disappointed in battery life. I have the Air 2 and the Pro 12.9 and they have much better battery life. Apple claims battery is suppose to be the same across the board on all current selling iPads. I'm just not buying it on the 9.7 Pro.

    To my post earlier about battery life, here was a real life test battery test from the different iPads by Engadget. With that said, I think it was easy to notice the difference from my 12.9 Pro and Air 2.

    Other than the battery life not being what you expect, how do you like the baby pro overall?

    My baby pro arrived today!! Lol haven't gotten a case, keyboard nor screen protector on it but I did load her up with iOS 10! Unlike most I decided to actually go for the 32gb because I know how I am with storage. Lol I used my iPad 2 with 16gb and never really had a storage issue.

    I like it. I needed cellular again and my big Pro wasn't. It's too irritating having to tether to phone all the time when out. Just not practical. So I figured I'd try the smaller pro since its more portable.

    I got my iPad Pro 9.7 on Thursday. It replaced my iPad Air 2. So far it is a real nice upgrade. The only problem I had is I bought it through ATT to save $140, 2 year contract, but ATT forgot to include the SIM. So I went to my local ATT store and got a SIM. The guy there was very helpful.

    When I got home I called ATT and told them I wanted my $45 activation fee waived because of their screwup. It was waived. Now I'm very happy.

    So, I've had my baby pro for a month now, and... I REALLY FREAKING LOVE IT!!!
    I also love that I decided to keep the screen naked and only use the minimalist Apple Smart Cover: The screen is incredibly sensitive and responsive, it's a real joy to use.

    Yep. I'm on it now since it is now my main computer, I'm currently in the Sierra foothills with no wifi and a very temperamental cellular connection and it works like a dream.

    Congrats! I've got an iPad Air. I've been wanting to upgrade but wasn't sure if it's worth it. I use mine for browsing, movies, streaming, and note taking for classes. Do you think the iPad Pro is worth the upgrade if that's all i use it for?

    If you had the air 2 I would say maybe, even though that's what I upgraded from. But since you have the air you most definitely should upgrade. Even if you don't use the pencil you'll notice a big difference.

    I picked up a new one on Black Friday at Target. Space Gray 32 gig wifi only to replace my iPad 3 that is starting to slow down plus the lack of software updates now. It will still be used not daily though and been impressed so far with the iPad Pro.

    I picked up a Rode Gold one from Sprint on Monday and I love it. It's 32Gb but I think given how I use my iPad, that shouldn't be a problem. Most of my stuff is kept in various clouds so I don't think space is an issue. I'm still debating the pencil and keyboard. I don't go on my computer at home that much anymore especially since I sit in front of one at work all day. This iPad will be my go to device other than for school which I really need to use my laptop for (ASUS convertible Windows 10). So with all of that and my Apple watch and iPhone 7, I am pretty much an Apple user for the long term

    UPDATE: Ordered Pencil. After further research, decided I could really put that to good use. Should have it in my hands tomorrow.
