    I'm not sure but isn't the ProMotion coming with iOS 11?
    No. It's a feature built into the newer iPad pros.

    Oh okay. I still have the first gen 12.9".

    Update: Which has been now sold. Looking at selling my old 15" rMBP and buying the new 2017 15".

    Hey,

    Some folks don't see much of allure of the new display technology. I do design and also have fun with my device and, boy, is this thing so much better. Initially, I was just expecting a better looking screen. But with TT & ProMotion the whole interaction and smoothness is from a different planet; it is buttery smooth and very pleasing to the eye.

    I personally recommend upgrading as the spec bump is significant (and the gen. 1 was no slouch).

    Cheers!

    Ok. Call me crazy but am I missing something with ProMotion? I switched from the 9.7 pro to the gen 2 12.9 and I'm not noticing ProMotion enough to gloat about it. In fact, if I wasn't told I would not know the feature existed. The biggest noticeable difference for me was, display size and improved colors. I wouldn't update a iPad Pro for ProMotion feature other than professional reasons. That's just my opinion.

    Nah, mate, you're not crazy; if you watch closely, or have a non-ProMotion iOS as a reference you'll see it. If it feels buttery smooth and overall substantially faster it's ProMotion doing its job; also try watching a few non-still images - you'll get better feel for it.

    Cheers!
