Who is getting the new iPad?

  1. I like everything about it, faster processor, more CPU cores, and a brighter display.
    Also the addition of 120hz refresh rate would make video editing really nice.

    The new iOS with the new iPad looks to be a match.
    I was leaning towards the 10.5 model wifi, but I might go with the cellular one since I have unlimited data, plus you could take it anywhere.
    Tethering these days is such a hassle, plus it kills your battery quicker.

    Of course I am gonna hold off and not preorder, rather see how the early adopters do before I jump the gun.

    The only disappointing part is that the new iPad doesn't have a new Retina display with more PPi.
    Also I want to wait and see how much ram they adding on their 10.5 model, hopefully more since they are adding all this multitasking ability. 4GB of Ram would be the sweet spot.
  2. Why would tethering kill a battery faster than cell use?
  3. Because both wifi and cell transceivers are running full tilt.

  4. But the wifi only unit doesn't have cellular.
  5. He probably means on the phone to which you are tethered.
  6. Ah!
  7. Just preordered mine from Verizon to replace my Air 2

  8. Nice, I am thinking about ordering it from bhphotovideo online so I don't have to pay taxes on it. That alone would save me $$$$.
  9. That's the only thing with ordering it from my cell provider; paying the taxes up front. Then again I like the 0% free financing.

  12. How does it feel holding it by the sides? Do you feel that you're worried about touching the screen with your grasping hand?
  13. Kind of. I have a case on order so hopefully that will clear up that issue.

    Definitely seems much bigger than the Air 2 to me.

    Swiping left and right is more responsive and the speakers actually have bass which I didn't much hear with the Air 2.

    I have tried scrolling up and down web pages and can definitely notice the increased refresh rate. They weren't kidding when they said buttery smooth. . Well worth the upgrade if you don't already have a Pro.
