The previous ipad the large size version, i ever did 100+ layers, no issue and no lag
Dependent on canvas size and dpi bah.

Seems like they are hyping Photoshop more than Procreate for this new release, I hate the former's subscription format tho.

Since its the year end and some of us are going overseas.

Anyone planning to purchase the iPad Pro 11/12.9 at iStudio at the Airport Outlet?

The idea of less 7% GST is very tempting and furthermore, iStudio list their products on iShopChangiPortal and up to 5% off for online purchases.

Anyone have the experience of purchasing Apple Products there before departure/arrival.. will we get charged 7% if we buy and fly overseas then come back?
Only 7% off, no further discount, stocks are available but low. Currently only 11" 256GB Space Grey and must pick up when departure, need to open and use to avoid entering with GST (if they check on you)

I tried a few times for overseas friends. I donít like the service and I am forced to buy some bundles at one time. Lol! Save 7% but spend more on useless stuff. If you donít buy bundle, you canít buy the item. Some references

For me, I wonít want to risk saving 7% and screwed the whole purchase which cost > $1500

You can purchase online at ishopchangi portal and collect on the date of departure, in that way no need to buy unnecessary stuffs.

They say at the moment stocks are low their retail outlet.

Therefore they will not be putting the iPad Pro 2018 on iShopChangi for now.
Is on ishopchangi for the 11" Space grey 256GB unless they just remove it

Thanks!

I forgot to elaborate that what I meant about the additional discount is if we purchase using specific credit card from banks

For example:

Stanchart Unlimited - 5% (Promo until Dec 18 capped at $100)
OCBC Frank - 6% (capped at $60)
HSBC Advance Credit Card / AMEX True Cashback - 1.5% (no capped)

12.9 inch. Definitely not suitable for carrying around. A bit squarish for my liking.


11 inch. Feel like a fat ipad mini. Much more portable feeling..

Above are just my preferences.

I was browsing iShopChangi since last night

They only list iPad Pro 10.5 for all the variations.

Didn't see the 12.9 models at all.
