6 Reasons to Buy the 2018 iPad Pro & 4 Reasons to Wait



Buy If You Want Lengthy Software Support

Buy If You Want Lengthy Software Support

If you plan to keep your next iPad for a long time you might consider buying a 2018 iPad Pro. 

If you're the type of person that likes to hold onto your gadgets for three, four, five years at a time, the new iPad Pro has a lot of appeal. 

Apple doesn't list this on its website, but the 2018 iPad Pros should get four years (or more) of software support. That means 4+ years of new features, security patches, and bug fixes. 

While you might be tempted to go with an older (and cheaper) iPad model, their software support will end much sooner. 

Apple didn't bring iPadOS 13 to aging iPads like the iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, or iPad Air 2. They stayed put on iOS 12.

The 2018 iPad Pros have been upgraded to Apple's new iPadOS 14 operating system. Those older models won't. 

The 2018's iPad Pro hardware also ensures that you get the latest features from Apple. Older devices typically don't get the full version of iPadOS due to hardware limitations. 

If you plan on keeping your next tablet for the long haul and you want all of the latest and greatest software features, you should think about buying an iPad Pro

    I have ipad air 2 now. I buy a 2018 today and when new ipad pro comes, i buy that one. I can sell 2018 then for a good price and for the time being I have a very good and brand new Ipad.
    I would regret buying an IPad pro now, because of the high price and little differences comparing ipad 2018. And selling Ipad Pro later is not possible without losing much money (price will drop a lot)

    One of the strengths of the iPad product line is its flexibility when it comes to user input. You can tap on screen, dictate by voice, or connect a keyboard and type away.

      That’s a common feature across all ecosystems.

    I waited and waited for the Samsung Galaxy Tab s3…..and when it came out, it was still weaker than the iPad Pro 12.9 that had been out for a while. I use the iPad at work. It has made a big difference. Keep the size the same and increase the screen to 13.3″ I also want to see 6GB of RAM, OLED screen with at least 350ppi or LCD with 450ppi and an A12 or A12X.
    If it has that, I will buy it, even if it is as expensive as the iPhone XS Max.
