    I'm kind of still on the fence between the iPad Air and the iPad Pro. I can save money and just go with the air but I can't help but imagine all the awesome things I can do once the USB-C port of the pro is unlocked when iPadOS is released.

    Anybody here who got their Pro units from AJT gadget world? Are they legit? Their reviews seem to be good, but their prices are kind of borderline 'too good to be true'. Where do they get their units from anyway?

    One downside from HK units are the adapters. it's big than the local release iPad's.

    Hi guys,

    I was playing around with the experimental features of safari under settings. And now my safari doesn’t work that well. I was hoping you guys could share what toggles should be turned on for an iPad Pro 11¨ running iOS 12.3.1.

    Much appreciated!

    Good day!

    I know I’m late to the party, but I finally bit the bullet and got a 12.9 version.
    iPadOS 13 has got me this excited to upgrade from a 10.5 Pro to this one.

    I have some questions about your current setup.
    What USB C adapters do you use? 3rd Party ones? What brand and what ports are included?
    Do you use back only cases? What kind and does it support Apple Pencil 2 charging?
    Is there a USB-C to Lightning Adapter (not the cable) that I can use? So I only have to bring one charger for my iPhone and Airpods?

    Thanks in advance for your input!

    Same dilemma here. Wifey wants an Ipad for her birthday. Kinda torn between the Air and Pro.

    Future proofing with the Pro is awesome especially with the IpadOS but the price is twice as the Air

    This is remedied by buying an anker/aukey multiport fast charger. If you’re on philmug it means you probably have multiple usb devices with slow chargers.

    One needs to evaluate how the iPad will be used. If it is going to be used as a laptop or every day carry replacement, the Pro is the way to go. For casual use, e.g., content consumption, the Air is more cost effective.

    For anyone wondering, yes, you are able to register the same e-sim profile you have on your phone to the iPad Pro 2018 and won't deactivate the one on your phone.

    did you put a screen protector on your iPad pros? I'm thinking of getting one, but I don't know if it's really necessary, particularly when you often use the apple pencil.

    About iPad Air vs Pro, check out the YouTube channel Max Tech. For me, he has sensible recommendations.

    The advice: don’t buy the 2019 iPad Air. Instead, get the previous gen 10.5 iPad Pro. It’s still available in the Apple store.
