    Hi all, I'm considering upgrading from my 9.7" iPad Pro and have one thing in mind: I love to type with my thumbs holding my 9.7" iPad Pro, which was a real advantage over my old iPad 3. Will I still be able to do this or is the increase in width really noticeable?

    Your current 9.7” iPad Pro is 6.6 inches wide. The new iPad Pro is 6.8 inches wide. It’s such a narrow difference that even if it’s slightly noticeable at first I’m sure you’ll get used to it.

    5mm wider and 10mm taller. I came from a mini 4 to the 10.5. Right now I'm using the split keyboard to see if I can get used to that.

    The length in portrait is where you notice it, especially if you read books that way.

    The main reason i returned my 10.5 is i read a lot in portrait and it didn't feel as good compared to my 9.7" pro.
    Also it had a terrible noisy clicky home button and the one on my pro is best i have ever had, smooth and can hardly hear it.
    And its only 4 months old and didn't see the value at the moment.

    I think it's in the same body shell of ipad 9.7 with reduced bezels.
