I have had the 9.7” Pro since launch and just received my new 2021 11” Pro. Excited to get it set up and see how they compare. I will post updates soon.

First impressions are, the 11” feels lighter than the 9.7” even though it is slightly heavier. The over all size if the 11” is just barely bigger than the 9.7” but a whole lot more screen. Setup was a breeze and very quick. I powered them both off and then on at the same time, the 11” was 18 seconds faster to the login screen. I will get it fully set up and update again.

I replaced my aging iPad Mini 2 with a shiny new iPad Pro 11”. I picked up a Apple Magic Keyboard on Amazon for $199 to go with it. So far the experience is well worth it. Apple gave me $85 in trade in for my iPad Mini 2, also. Good deal! Congrats on yours! Looks good!

I upgraded my 9.7” Pro to a 10.5” Pro a couple of years ago, and am tempted to move to an 11” Pro later this year.

I am not a tech reviewer and don't have any official stats to share. I love the new iPad Pro 11", the bigger and nicer screen. It is snappier that the 9.7" Pro. I opted for the Pro over the Air 4 because I wanted to make sure it was future proof as much as possible and since I need the cellular connection I thought going with the Pro over the Air 4 was the best choice. I have no regrets and look forward to getting more use and seeing how awesome this new iPad is.

So at the last minute of my return period I returned the 2021 iPad Pro 11", it just didn't seem that it was a good enough upgrade from my 9.7" Pro to justify the cost. There were things that were nice about it but from a functionality stand point it just wasn't enough.

3 months later my iPad Pro 9.7 has officially stopped working. I was in the middle of the latest update and it froze and haven't been able to get it revived. I have taken it in to the Simply Mac and they weren't able to do anything either. So I have ordered a new iPad 11 Pro. Excited to get it up and running.
