Some asshole (Thanks San Francisco) stole my iPad Pro 12.9” (along with ~$3,000 of other gear) last week. ☹️
I ❤️ the iPad Pro so much and use it heavily in both my work and personal life, so replacing it as soon as possible was a must! Stolen iPad: 12.9” iPad Pro - Gold - 128GB - WiFi Replacement: 9.7” iPad Pro - Rose Gold - 128GB - Cellular *There wasn’t a 256GB option when I got the 12.9” at launch, but after using that device for the time I did, I found 128GB to be a good size for me, and I didn’t feel the need to get the newly available 256GB option.
Why the change? There are a couple of reasons:
Both of the devices are really great, but they each have tradeoffs, and most of the tradeoffs are directly related to their physical size. I don’t regret my decision so far, and do find myself pulling out my iPad more often now that it’s a bit easier to wrangle. With the 12.9” I would default to my iPhone unless I was in a situation that lent itself to using the large device (e.g sitting somewhere with a flat surface in front of me). With the smaller iPad Pro I can now use my iPad in more situations. Either way you go (9.7” or 12.9”), you are getting a kick ass powerhouse of a computer!
