    Just got home with it. 64gb space gray. WiFi only

    Finished setting it up. Started to play with it and my oldest son asks to check it out. He’s a senior in a technical schools computer program.

    Been 2 hours now and he’s watching a movie on it. Looking forward to my turn with my new toy. Lol

    I have a 1st gen 12.9. Worked fine didn’t really need to upgrade but I started playing with the new one. Couldn’t walk away.

    Told him to be careful as the new case is arriving tomorrow. Gotta love Amazon next day delivery.

    I purchased AppleCare. Thing is too much $$ not to have it. One drop and you could be out of luck. Now it’s just a $50 bill and you get a new one.

    Now I just need to figure out what to do with the old one. Probably will offer it for sale. I have the Apple keyboard and pencil. Plus a bunch of cases.

    Decisions

    I’m waiting for mine to be delivered Monday or Tuesday!!! I ordered the exact same one but the WiFi/Cellular version. I was due for an upgrade of my 10.5 iPad Pro. The 11in. didn’t seem like as much of an upgrade. I just ordered the Apple keyboard from amazon with will be delivered tomorrow. I don’t think I’m going to bother getting the pencil for now. I’m a very light basic user so I know it will replace my laptop for all my needs.

    I know right. I was planning on the 11” and when I saw how small it was. Decided to step up the the 12.9. Amazing the difference in size. 2” doesn’t seem like much but it is.

    Quick question.

    I occasionally want to use a keyboard with the iPad. I don’t want a keyboard case and the prices are kinda high for my limited use.

    If I purchased the usb-c to usb-a dongle, could I use my bt keyboard that I use with my pc.

    Congrats on the new iPad sir. I love mine. Use it for everything, playing games, work, movies.... you name it. If you have a Bluetooth keyboard you don’t need any thing additional for it to work.

    Sounds like a sweet upgrade! I'm still rocking and loving my 10.5. HOWEVER I just bought one of the new 2019 MBPs.

    I just got a new 12.9" around a week or so ago. I'm so glad. I had a Gen 2 and I like this one so much more. I'm looking forward to seeing what iPadOS 13 will do on it. I got the Pencil though and I'm certainly glad I did.

    Enjoy your new iPad.

    If it’s a BT keyboard, no dongle required. I use an Apple kb with mine (new12.9”) and it works flawlessly. I got a case for the kb on Amazon. Works great when traveling.

    There’s no way I was going to spend $150 on a kB case that won’t work with the next gen.

    Thanks. Now I just need to find a used on. I think my local pawn shop has one. Gonna head over and see.

    Local pawn shop had one for $15. Works perfect with my iPad. Only problem is it still connects with the old owner name (Marisa’s keyboard). Can’t rename with the iPad. Need to find a Mac to rename it.

    I took back my Apple keyboard and got a Vanky keyboard. It feels like I’m in a laptop. It even has a backlit keyboard and compartment for the Apple Pencil which I decided that I’m going to get one today!! I’ve found some uses for it besides being sick of wiping fingerprints off of the screen! lol!

    That really DOES look like a laptop! Do you have the new iPadOS?

    I got mine when it came out and I’m still loving it. I didn’t get the keyboard because for me, the whole point of a tablet is to do away with the keyboard, but I did get the pencil and I love that, too.

    I have the Logitech Slim Folio Keyboard Case and I love it. Has backlit keys, USB-C charge can be charged by iPad itself and has a flap that holds the pencil or Logitech Crayon. I love this case, WAAAAAAAAY better than the Apple Smart Keyboard pffft.
