    Really 7 days after announcement to pre-order, based on past timelines I think we will see pre-orders on the 14th with shipments on the 21st. Given the 6.1" LCD is delayed potentially 1-2 months they need to get some sales momentum on what is shipping to make the end of quarter solid. Yes pent up demand for the new cheaper iPhone will be there but sales figures are needed to make the market happy.

    Ok I don’t even use a MacBook anymore.
    My battery life has taken a serious beating
    This will be my reason for buying it. My current iPad is fast enough, though, since all I use it for is writing (a lot), Safari and photo editing.

    One more thing I’d like: a better keyboard case. The Apple Genius told me they’ll replace mine whenever since there are known issues with the design. I’m on my fourth.

    The updated Brydge keyboard reviews give the sense that using theirs turns your iPad Pro 12.9 into a good laptop replacement, I am looking at getting one when the new iPad Pro 3 comes out and trying out the keyboard, if my wife likes it I will get her an iPad Pro 3 and get her one too. https://www.brydge.com

    What I like about the Apple Smart Keyboard is how light it is and how it lays flat on a table. Also that it never has to charge.

    I have the iPad Pro 10.5 and love it. I am not sure what they could offer on a new iPad that would make me want to buy it and take the $ hit with the 10.5"

    I use the Logitech - Slim Combo Keyboard Folio Case, and to get it in a new size would be another $100 to $150. I have FaceID on my iPhone, so not sure why I need or care for it on my iPad, especially if it only works in portrait mode.

    There is a ton of spare space on my iPad Pro now, so I don't need more storage.

    I keep it in pristine condition, so it's not damaged.

    Not sure how a AMOLED would get me change my mind. I use my iPad Pro a lot for work, when I don't want to use my laptop and/or lug it around.

    They would have to reveal a stunning must have change.

    I did upgrade my 8+ for Xs-Max and my S3 Watch for a S4, but not excited about a new iPad Pro (yet)

    Waiting pretty impatiently for Ipad Pro 12.9–I have early gen 1 with only 128 GB-plus its showing its heavy use (instead of my Macbook Pro 15”). Will likely do Apple trade for it.

    I did upgrade my 3.5 YO Plus phone for an XSMax 256–planned to do it later but am glad I did—big difference-and now hoping for face ID on Ipad—IF it will work in landscape. I love IOS 12 on the Ipad—allows me to push it to the max (except for using external drives—but do carry wifi WD drive when I travel-particularly for photography)

    I too have the Logitech Slim Combo and its a good case and decent keyboard but I found the bit larger Logitech K811 keyboard with a ZUGU case is more useful for me (both tucked into a smallish carry case) —and it will work with whatever footprint changes are made.

    I had opted to grab the resale value on my iPad Pro 2nd Gen 512GB while it was still high, but could really use the new one soon.

    I currently have the iPad Pro 10.5 and the Logitech Slim Smart Connect Keyboard/Case. I will most likely get an 11" or 12.9" new Pro, but ONLY after Logitech releases the keyboard. I don't want the iPad Pro w/o and I don't want Apple's smart keyboard.

    So happy to buy it and sell my 10.5, but not until I can use it the way I need to...

    Adobe is going to bring back the resurgence of the iPad with the release of the full version of Photoshop. Going to be crazy.

    Well said, i have the 1G 12.9 and have the Logitech Folio keyboard and absolutely love it. I really hope they have a keyboard at launch. I don’t want any other keyboard and apples keyboard doesn’t offer much protection

    Since last posting my "less than 1-year old" HP Spectre is taking a dump... I have no sound, and it's !$#!# me off. So leaning more towards the 12.9 for daily use and travel. Sadly I need a PC/Laptop on top of it, because the iPad can't run specific / job-required applications, so I have to travel with both. But for meetings and general (out for the day) I can try to make due with an iPad, but again, not w/o the keyboard.

    Using it to watch movies/shows while I travel is my #1 use.

    For your laptop or your iPad Pro? (The movies?)

    btw I fixed my laptop, I removed all sound drivers and associated drivers, and shut down.. then rebooted and let it rebuild. Took about 12 different things to get it to work, but finally did.

    I ordered the 12.9 “ 1TB monster with a cover, the pencil and the Air Pods. I got the cover and the Air Pods, the iPad and pencil will come during the last week of November. Most likely I won’t even notice the month go by: my new puppy is a handful.
