    I am going to try to make the switch to an 10.5 inch IPad Pro. I have a MacBook but want to give it a shot. It does everything that I need and more... I will test it for a month before I sell my MacBook..
    It can replace a laptop, but it can’t be compared against one.
    The iPP 10.5” is great and I think you’ll love it!

    I'm not on a cycle honestly. I get a new iPad when I "need" one. My 12.9 is still working flawlessly. I imagine I've got a few more years on that. No need to waste the money on a new one when the current one works just fine. For me, my iPad is seen in a similar light as my computers.

    I upgraded from my iPad 2 last year to an iPad Air 2. I would have liked to get the iPad Pro but after discussing this with a very helpful sales associate at our local Apple Store, I decided that the Air 2 would fit my needs perfectly, and I have no regrets. I have no immediate plans to upgrade (unless I win the lottery, and then heck yeah). As long as my Air 2 behaves, and stays relevant (based on being able to update to the latest iOS), I don't foresee me making a change.

    I’m very happy with the 10.5” iPP, and have no plans of upgrading it. Although I’ll be very tempted with this year’s model.

    I’ve heard rumors of it being announced in September. It could be this March, no one really knows

    iPad Mini 3
    Air 2
    iPP 12.9”

    Those are the iPads I’ve had in the last 4yrs so I’m looking at an update around a little under every 1.5 yrs. waiting to see what they announce for this year’s lineup before I decide to upgrade my 12.9”. I will stay with the 12.9” because no way I move to a smaller screen now

    If I feel that the iPad is losing it's charm like, battery discharging way quickly, display getting dimmer or anything else, then I will start making plans to upgrade, 5 years strong with my iPad Air 1 <3

    Whenever an update is offered. But.....I look at the forums to make there are not any problems with the update before updating any device.

    I’m using my IPad Air 2 which I bought on release day and I do not plan to upgrade anytime soon. It rarely gets used anymore

    I can’t believe they’re not releasing a new iPad. I never thought in a million years that I’d be purchasing another android tablet but that’s exactly what I’m going to be doing. This sucks, I’m disgusted.

    Are you sure they aren’t releasing a new iPad? I’m thinking they will! At least I’m really hoping they do. I was planning on updating my 9.7 Pro this year.

    I’d say I would like to update every 2 years...Same as the iPhone.

    My thoughts too. So far my Air 2 is doing well. iOS 12 is smooth and there are no complaints.

    When the last one becomes difficult to operate,so by my reckoning about 4-5 years interval

    When Apple finally releases the new iPad Mini 5 and/or Pro model! Last real update was in the Mini 3 with the A8. In 2015, Mini 4 had the same A8 but Apple double the RAM to 2GB! We are approaching 2019 in a little over a month and still no update Mini!

    Still using the 9.7" IPP daily and will keep on using it until it's unsupported.

    I had purchased the original iPad back in the day. Upgraded to the 2015 iPad Pro 12.9. Then, upgraded again to the 2018 iPad Pro 12.9.

    I still own the original 12.9” iPad Pro but I don’t have any plans to upgrade as of now. As much as I love the design of the new iPads (although very utilitarian for Apple, in my opinion) I just don’t put a ton of mileage on my iPad. Even at home on the couch I usually prefer to use my iPhone. *
    My kids, on the other hand, aren’t old enough for phones yet (not in my household anyway) so they both have iPads and use them daily. My oldest has a 2017 iPad and my youngest has a Mini from a few years back.

    My iPad Pro will be paid off in two months. It runs perfectly. Not upgrading it. As long as updates are sent out I am perfectly ok. I also have the 2018 9.7 iPad and I am ok

    Our iPad Air 2 has served us well for 4 years now so we're upgrading to both an iPad 2017 and iPad 2018 for Christmas. Hopefully these iPads will last just as long. The iPad Air 2 will now become a backup device.
