Just received email from apple advertising their current iPad pro. Either trying to clear stock or no new iPad..

Apple’s standard, there wouldn’t be any new price revision until a new model is out.

Then how can we say they are clearing stocks. On and off companies advertise. Anxiously waiting for 1-2 weeks

I think it is when the supplies are low, but then again, they may keep producing them and market them as a ‘lower cost’ iPad when a new one comes out.

I’m not sure if the same rules will apply in Singapore as I have heard that in some countries and regions, since it’s about 2 weeks to WWDC, you can buy it now, then within 2 weeks or 14 days, ‘return’ the iPad and then ‘upgrade’ to the newer one, when it comes out.

At the same time, not sure if there’s any packaging and admin fee incurred - and of course, it must be bought from Apple directly.

you can also do that here in SG if you buy it straight in their orchard outlet... but must pay some penalty when returning it for restocking whatever you may have when returning it so long as its still at very good condition

I got myself the Logitech Slim Combo keyboard case. The keyboard is also easily detachable and runs via the smart connector also, and the backlit keyboard is a plus. The keyboard is also very light.

Hard to say whether will launch. Even if it doesn't announce during the WWDC, it will ultimately be out during the September/October Keynote for the new iPhones/Apple Watch Series 4.

Lol software is more important. Hardware more or less the current gen pros can handle quite well. Need better features... especially opening a few excel and word documents. Editing and stuff

The current Pros are speed demons. Software wise, current 11.3.1 is still buggy and since 11.3, it has corrupted my X's default camera app! (keeps freezing and sometimes will cause reboots)

Hopefully 11.4 will be much improved.

Yeah. I hope to see mouse support too..: so can play pubg or some steam games... also hope to have PS4 remote play compatibility. Maybe Sony can work with Apple ... allow controller support lol.
