    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".

    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).

    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.
