Take note I think it will take a while for third party cases to be compatible with the 2nd gen Apple Pencil ...

I know engraving is free but is it important? My fren said it’s important as it serves as a form of identity and may be useful info if stolen. True?

Depends if u want to sell it next time. Nobody wants to buy an engraved one.

I won’t recommend engraving too. I had an old ipad with a symbol engraved - not even identity, very poor resale value down the line, macham like worse than scratches.

same thought.. I never bother engraving it coz its harder to resale or even as gift if it has some markings

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

"I haven’t 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.

Seems like the iPad is getting glowing reviews across the board. Kinda sad that all that power is being sandboxed within iOS itself.

The battery life testing methodology is just stupid. Who the hell watches movie at 100% volume and brightness? :s11:

Also, 100% volume and brightness might mean different things across different products. At least equalize the volume (in decibels) or brightness (in nits) for this to be a fair test.

What a crap writer.

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.
