How is the 12.9” ?

I like the size but i find the weight a bit heavy to hold for long. So still undecisive 11” or 12.9”. My last ipad is 9.7”.

For read magazine is 11” enough? Dont like to always zoom in to read
I echo all your concerns.

And I went with the 11"

If it was too heavy for me, I'd not use it as much

It’s kinda ironic (and a bit infuriating) that I upgraded to a bigger screen (from 10.5 to 11”) yet the app window became smaller!

Top offenders:

Netflix
Lightroom CC
Facebook

I know it’s not Apple’s fault per se but they should pressure app developers to support new resolutions and aspect ratios as soon as possible.

11” is perfect for portability but 12.9” is very exclusive apple. No other android has

That is the issue faced by early adopters

Apple has told and sent emails out to everyone under the Developers programme about it. Most of the time it is best to test on the actual hardware before they push out updates cause software emulator still might not perform as expected even when it comes to design.

So give the devs awhile

No WhatsApp on the iPad. Not even web based I believe.

For sure you can use whatsapp web on your ipad.. just open it in your safari browser.. hold a while on reload / refresh logo and request desktop version.. then you just use it as usual

Ahh that’s the problem with Apple. Wants people to use iPad Pro as a pro tool but still doesn’t support desktop safari. Only mobile based.

Managed to get the iPad Pro from Courts using the SINGLE11 promo code. Previously had issues that it says not valid, even though I had created an account and signed in.

After some trial and errors, it seems that you can use the promo code only once, per account, and for that account, I had some payment issues after the "Make Payment" stage.

It is only after creating a new account, which means another email address and another phone number, will then the promo code go through.

When I full screen watching from YouTube app, the top bar is still showing the signal bars, battery time and date etc. But if use Safari it is ok. Anyone experience the same? Any way to go about cos it’s annoying.

Mine is iPad Pro 12.9, 64gig Cellular. My older iPads don’t have such issues.
Most apps havent update for the ipad pro’s resolution yet.
