    I only use my iPhone at this time. I don't have an iPad. But am thinking about one. Which do you spend more time on, and why?

    Same as you. Just the iPhone. And my Watch when it's convenient.

    Same as you. I'm thinking about it again. I had an iPad and then when I started using the galaxy Note and then iPhone 6 Plus I found I didn't use it as much. I want the 9.7" Pro but I haven't been able to justify the price.

    I think there are many pros to using both. For me, my phone is definitely the primary communicator. It's compact and portable and lasts the whole day. The iPad is great for gaming, watching movies, showing pictures to family, maybe even doing some drawing with the Apple pencil.

    But if I need to type an E-mail to someone. If I'm wanting to make phone calls. If I'm looking to take photos, I'm definitely choosing my phone. (Don't be that guy with a 12.9" iPad taking photo) hahaha.

    My sister loves her tablet and is happy using it as her daily driver so I think it depends on what you like most

    So with you it's pretty close to equal time?

    My iPhone is always with me and therefore, I use it the most. Having said that, I still use my iPad Pro quite a bit, especially when I'm at home watching tv or getting my car serviced, etc. still, my iPhone usage far exceeds that of my iPad Pro.

    I use my iPhone most. I use my iPad with my hdmi dongle to watch Netflix. If I'm reading, I prefer the iPad to my phone. I'll also use my iPad for work, updating spreadsheets and what not. Even though I use my iPhone 99% of the time, I would still miss not having an iPad.

    I use my iPhone more than my iPad. I use iPad only for YouTube videos and for browsing and magazines.

    About 50-50 here. iPhone for most emails, phone calls, text messages, photos and music. iPad for ProAV design work, several crossword/word find games, and movies.

    Now that I'm back in school, I use them both equally now. I use my iPad Pro for class and meetings at work.

    I spend more time on my phone because it's always near. Sometimes after work it might be a few hours until I go upstairs for my iPad so that adds to my phone usage too.

    Phone by far. iMessage, games, social media, etc. It's with me every day.

    iPad for comic books and as a soundboard for a podcast. Sometimes Tapatalk and a few other things.

    Everything gets universal usage , I have an iPad Pro with keyboard and pencil for work at Verizon Corp. I send and receive faxes from it , I can sign documents use word , excel, and PowerPoint which people didn't think the iPad can but does . Bring to meetings .. I make all my greeting cards , flyers with the pages app.
    Use my Apple Watch when I want to answer a quick call for convenience , love replying to a quick text with it . And I have an IPhone 7 plus for the camera take lots of photos and videos of my 2 1/2 year old daughter ...

    Everything I have fits my work / life balance .

    2 cents given... lol

    Not quite, I definitely use my phone way more than the iPad but what I'm trying to say is, there are positives to using either since they can accomplish different things. but, if I had to choose one, it would definitely be the iPhone. I can live without an iPad. It's not that crucial to my day to day activities. But it's really nice to game on and watch movies ect ect 😃

    I use my iPhone far more than my iPad. Reason being is that i find my iPad inconvenient at times due to its size.

    I guess I use my iPhone more than my iPad. My iPad I use when I'm at work and sometimes when I'm at home but my iPhone is usually always with me so it's the one I use most.

    Also my iPad is WiFi so I'd need to tether it to iPhone if I wasn't at home or work on the WiFi

    Depends on what I'm doing. When volunteering, I'm in the wilderness with a full pack on, I use my iPhone for pics, mapping, trail reports, plant & animal studies etc.

    But right now I'm bedridden for a while so I'm on my iPad for everything.

    When I'm healthy and normally active it's about a 50-50

    My iPhone is always with me, but I'd say in terms of usage/screen time, I use my iPad more.

    I would say that my iPhone 7+ gets the most use. I am on the go at work and I am on it all the time. My brand new MacBook is taking over 2nd place quickly over my iPad Pro 9.7. It is an amazing machine and the size is amazing and I am not pulling out the iPad nearly as much as I used to.

    1. iPhone 7+ (Red)
    2. MacBook
    3. Ipad Pro 9.7

    Since you don't need that iPad anymore, just turn iMessage and find my iPad off, wipe it, then send it to me!
