    Ok I seriously need to check my typos...lol I thought about the rose gold briefly, but decided to go with the space grey.
    Nice!
    I’ve been using mine for a day, and Split Screen is definitely nicer on the 12.9” as it shows full iPad sized apps as compared to the iPhone sized apps on the 10.5”.

    12.9” for sure. More screen real estate. I use split screen every single day.

    I know I’m late to the party, but I have had the first and second generation 12.9 inch iPad Pro devices, and I love love LOVE the 12.9. I’m not blind but I admire the screen size as I can see everything on it. I think it depends on what kind of work you do, but I DJ with a separate music controller, along with editing RAW photos with Affinity Photo, and the screen size is absolutely needed to hit all them buttons.

    Was it worth the upgrade from gen 1 12.9” to gen 2 12.9”? I’m still on gen 1. Not really seriously considering the upgrade but thought I’d ask.

    The speed bump is nice, but what I appreciate most is TrueTone and ProMotion.

    If you have extra cash, it’s worth it.
    Generally speaking, it’s not much of an upgrade IMO.

    So the refresh rate of the screen is superior. This, coupled with the A10X Fusion’s power, means that the moment I need to hit a button when DJing, there is no lag as I had experienced before. This is a game changer for those that need this kind of work. I love the TrueTone display, along with the Wide Color Gamut support, meaning I get accurate colors when photo editing as well. Also, a tidbit I discovered recently, it can play HDR videos from iTunes and Netflix (can’t confirm Amazon video but I think they support it as well). This is outstanding since in many professional opinions HDR is the bigger upgrade than 4K.

    Oh my goodness if they put in an Apple made GPU with an A11X Bionic, that alone is worthwhile of an upgrade. The 2017 iPad Pro already has a 12-core GPU by Imagination Technologies, and this year’s Apple designed GPU uses half the power as the Imagination GPU in iPhone devices. So either the battery life will be even better on next year’s iPad models with an Apple-designed GPU, or they use that extra energy from battery savings to power something else, like an even beefier CPU or a new technology. Now add in possibly porting features from other devices like Face ID and yes I believe you. Next year’s iPad will totally be a force to be reckoned with. MacBooks around the world tremble in fear of what comes next for iPad that is quickly encroaching on the MacBook’s territories. Unless Intel has a massive breakthrough soon, the future is looking brighter for iPad than it does the lower model MacBooks.

    I totally agree with evanking527, I purchased the IPP 10.5",and I loved it, but, I need more screen real estate. Returned it for the IPP
    12.9" 2 nd gen.......OMG!!!! I looooove it! True tone, color gamut, large screen, etc. Honestly, it's very portable to me. It's perfect. I do u understand that some might not agree with my opinion on it being portable, but, that's just my opinion. It works for me.

    Nothing beats the 12.9” for split screen.
    What do you use your iPP for?

    I am going to get my mom the new 2017 IPAD and need help with how much GB to get. She will mainly use it for Netflix, email, web surfing, and a few light games. Would 64GB be enough? Also books thru Kindle books.

    To be safe, I would recommend the 128GB even though the 32GB might be enough for her.

    So the 2017 iPad starts at 64 GB. The previous 2015 12.9 iPad starts at 32GB. I have a 64 GB and it is enough for me, though I don’t download my full Apple Music Library, and I optimize my iCloud Photo Library. I download just the songs I need for live mixing and download just the photos I need for Affinity Photo. I still use email and Netflix and YouTube with plenty of gigs left
