    Got the 12.9in (2018) and it’s a totally different experience. I’d still say get the 10.5in (2nd gen) if you don’t really care for the newer pencil support. I still have a mini 4 and it’s still amazing in my eyes. I’m a student and pencil with a low latency was important to me . when you have the extra screen real estate from the 12.9in that’s where IPadOS really shines everything just feels perfectly spaced.

    I wasn’t sure which to buy. My first iPad was the iPad mini (1st gen) so for me any update is an update. I likely going to get the 10.5 inch ! Value for money is better as the only difference I can see it the home screen and the button. You’ve proven that the specs are pretty much the same! Thanks

    I'd be cautious folks. If apple get wind of these vids showing 2017 pro performing better than 2018 pro in "some" scenarios they are likely to code their next update to deliberately slow the A10x..I know many of you will think I've got my tin foil hat on BUT this is exactly how it rolls. If they cannot manipulate or speed up the A12x (2018) via updates, their only option to save face is to manipulate the 2017 A10x chip and incrementally slow it down. They need the current ipad to outperform every other and is a problem if it does not. Not to mention rather embarrassing. Careful of those updates guys. Be wary.

    I’ve never had a problem with my 10.5” Pro. It’s basically a perfect tablet. There’s no need to upgrade, unless you want to take advantage of the newer form factor, Face ID (inferior to Touch ID imho) and the new Apple Pencil. My wife got me the 11” and she wants me to give my LOVELY 10.5” to my 12 year old son so he can pass his iPad Mini 4 down to my 9 year old daughter because her iPad is starting to show it’s age. I hope to enjoy the 11” as much as I’m enjoying the 10.5”.

    Geekbench scores are a scam. To the average consumer these big numbers are mostly irrelevant. What they also fail to display is having raw horsepower coupled with a handcuffed operating system (iOS)is purely frustrating as an end result. Who wants/needs a super powerful device that is so limited in functionality due to its subsequent interface? Also, often times manufacturers (looking at you Apple) are in bed with geekbench, antutu etc. The numbers can be & often are manipulated.

    Ipad 2018 works a little faster, but under the application there is a long black bar, on the iPad 2017 it isn't and I think if a person wants to take a powerful iPad it doesn't matter what year it is, the main thing is that the iPad is pro and has 256, 512 GB or 1TB;)

    It's great comparison. Im keeping my 10.5. I love the physical button by the way it is so apple-y lol. Have the mini 5 too. Saves me the pencil for both. 10.5 for classroom and mini 5 for clinical rounds😊

    Thank for this valuable video. I'm actually wanting an ipad to do art, to use with procreate app and other adobe art apps. I think I'm sold on the 2017 version because of the price point but I had to figure it out if it would be worth my investment since I'm on a tight budget. Also I liked the design of 10.5" bc it'll fit my bag which I carry around everywhere. I wish you had talked about the battery life on these but that's okay. Thank you for this valuable comparison

    The iPad is not a phone, I don't see the need to release new models so frequently. The same way you're not going to buy a new laptop every year, I don't think people will buy an iPad each year either. Now, about upgrading; it was pricey in 2017, not worth to pay even a higher price only a year later, specially still being such a powerful device… Maybe the 2020 model it'll be worth.

    I am on air2 now.. Want to change any time soon. But think i go for the 11. New design and at least for upcoming years plenty of power with usb c. With any luck new ios has more compatibility with it for e.g. Ssd/hdd.
