Haha. The new iMac I bought. For the big kid (wife). I didn’t realize iPad Pro’s AppleCare is so close to the iMac’s AppleCare cost.

Enjoy two years of peace of mind when you buy AppleCare+ for iPad.​

Every iPad comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its one-year limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary technical support. AppleCare+ extends your iPad, Apple Pencil and Apple-branded iPad keyboard coverage to two years from your AppleCare+ purchase date and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage protection every 12 months. Each incident is subject to a service fee of S$68 for iPad and S$42 for Apple Pencil or Apple-branded iPad keyboard.1 In addition, you’ll get 24/7 priority access to Apple experts by chat or phone through getsupport.apple.com.

Last time, dunno how many years ago I bought is 24 months covered twice, now twice every 12 months.

I enjoy mine as well very much, using since launch day (should be exactly 1 month today) but I haven't get my AppleCare+ yet. 🤣

Ditto. Oddly I pasted the matte paper-like protector but until now still have not gotten a pencil. I like the surface matte a lot, maybe cos I hardly use the screen for movies, but more for work.

I got the 11” model with the magic keyboard a month ago as I thought since I already have the MacBook Pro (M1), I didn’t need an iPad of similar size and weight. Thought it’d be heavy if I were to bring both out too but I never had the need to bring both MacBook and iPad thus far.
And I compared the weight of 11” with magic keyboard vs MacBook Pro which is around 1.4kg, didn’t exactly feel a lot lighter either.
Now starting to feel that the ipad is able to replace my on-the-go driver so considering to change the 11” to 12.9” with magic keyboard.

Never owned a 12.9” iPad and wonder how is the user experience like on daily basis compared to 11”?
Use mainly for studying, report writing and graphic and web design.

I've been reading reviews that the latest ipad pro is basically overpowered and the previous generation will do any jobs the same. Is it just better to get the prev gen?

I got a 2020 at a pretty good price, if the savings is decent and it’s sufficient for your use case I think it’s ok

What would be a good price per se? Seems like apple store isn't selling the prev gen anymore. Is the only other distro best denki/courts etc? Or is lazada shopee safe?

KwayChup and I got ours from Courts. That was a good deal. iPad Pro 11 inch (2020) 512GB at $1089 I think. LazMall is not bad. I got my iPad Air 3 (256GB) from them at $685.

Shopee’s sets all US sets. So you need another adaptor for it.

Anyone experiencing bad battery life performance on 14.6? I just received and updated my iPad Pro to it and the drain was pretty significant as compared to my old 6th gen iPad

Yes. Battery drain is bad. Batt going down quite fast. I figured it’s because i am using Bluetooth with Apple Pencil and the Logitech keyboard. I guess AppleCare is a must. Can replace the batt when it gets really bad right?

The battery drain on my iPad Air 3 isn’t that bad. But one thing I notice is that when the battery is 100% and I did a reboot, the battery became 94%. It’s weird coz it’s supposed to be new. Usually this doesn’t occur till after some extended usage.

Depends on you, the battery drain might just be a software issue as the battery capacity is huge for iPad. But I think must be below 80% to trigger the battery replacement service.
