They better not go down that route. Either stick with the current 4:3 or go to 3:2.
Why is 4:3 or 3:2 better when the android folks are moving to 16:9

Do you guys purchase applecare for ipad pro?
For me, I will purchase for my mac & not for iphone.

Cos, mac prone to have a problem (graphics, hdd, in-built speaker, monitor) while my iphone not problem at all.
Never had an ipad before, so not sure what kind of problem ipad users always encounter.

App Store and search for watsapp. Will show messenger for watsapp. Install and launch will have a qr code.
Need to go to watsapp on phone and go to settings page and look for web watsapp. Then use phone to take scan on iPad watsapp messenger qr code. Then settled.
This is a waste, to be honest. Apps like this are just web browser containers.

Just go to web.whatsapp.com (request desktop site) and you get the same functionality.

16:9 is only good for watching videos. For productivity, 4:3 (iPads) or 3:2 (Surface) is better.

Agree on the productivity screen ratio.

i think it's worth the get Apple Care + for iPad Pro

u r covered 2 years warranty .

Out-of-warranty fee
11" S$ 748
12.9" S$ 968

AppleCare+ service fee
$68 for both model

unless u r those that confirm every year upgrade device ...then no point getting the apple care

Even yearly upgrade is worth it. Can always call in to cancel and Apple will refund the AppleCare+ remaining value.

Nope. Only direct from Apple store or online.

Thanks for the tip! Will try tonight.
The app got the bloody ads at the top. Damn irritating.

For those havenít bought their iPad pros yet, the AppleCare+ covers the Apple Pencil as well, but the pencil must be bought together with the iPad Pro. I was told must be same invoice. I bought them separately due no stock and even though highlighted, they say no choice, itís by third party insurer terms.
Confirmed. I ordered a pencil last Sat morning and iPad with Applecare+ later in the day for collection (2 invoices). Was told to return my ipad and pencil, ask for refund, and then order again under the same invoice. But then means got to wait another 2 weeks because thereís no stock of ipad.
