I know engraving is free but is it important? My fren said itís important as it serves as a form of identity and may be useful info if stolen. True?
all apple devices I owned don't have engraved.

Hahaha! Ops.....sorry for laughing. Assuming if you lost your iPad Pro, u also cannot go around asking ppl to take out their iPad Pro from the case and show you whether got engraving or not right? You only screw yourself up if you want to sell.

it depends on ur usage... if you're going with just wifi version not lte I suggest getting bigger space...

I use to think 64gb is more than enough for me... but my next IPP for sure will go next higher space.

HWZ Review...really need to find better writers man. The one point that screams out at me comes at the end.

"I havenít had the chance to play around with it much but I did manage to import photos off my SD card using a USB SD card reader and a USB-C to USB-A adapter."

Then the change to the USB-C port is listed as a con as it has limitations? aren't you kinda contradicting yourself?

The inclusion of the USB-C port alone allows for so much more expansion and functionality. check out the review from The Verge, at least they tried with multiple dongles to see what worked and what didn't.

I think the HWZ "Review" can be a lot better.
Did you read the full article? It's packed with details and you've kind of disregarded those

Chevalier, this is the limitation mentioned in the article.

No, Apple has strict implementations on how the USB-C port should work and one of the restrictions is that you cannot connect external storage devices like USB flash drives or even USB external portable HDDs to it. This means that if you have to wirelessly transfer files and documents to the iPad Pro.

My current one is 64GB and getting the new one with same storage.

I donít have many apps and 64GB is more than enough.

Ya lor this is a crippling restriction that limits the functionality of usb-c. Wonder if this is merely a software limitation and if simply future iOS update can add additional compatibilities

The review by HWZ also says that, "Orientation aside, Face ID also works at steeper angles and greater distances."

I wonder if this means we can lay the iPad flat down on the table and still unlock with Face ID without leaning over like an ostrich.

I'm getting the Wifi model since i'm using my iPhone to hotspot it.

That's the thing..
I don't take photos or videos on the iPad.
I will normally put 4-5 movies if i'm flying. I will delete the movies when i'm back in Sg.
I'm not sure whether i will do a lot of photo editing or video editing on the iPad.
I will use the iPad for reading, browsing or playing some games.

So 64gb should be enough for my current usage.. but i kept thinking that 256gb is more "future proof" 😂

it depends on ur usage... if you're going with just wifi version not lte I suggest getting bigger space...

Currently 128GB just nice for me, damage for 256GB+pencil+Applecare will be $2100 - that's really expensive for a tablet.

1TB seriously overkill.

movies size this days getting bigger and bigger... ya if you're thinking just for 4-5 movies then all good. I have both VLC and netflix installed on my phone... including 7gb music and 10gb+ manga so far my 64gb iphone is down to just few 5gb...
