    Wearing out batteries, screen protectors, cables, "pencils" and cases...

    My guess is the next version is going to be set to music with wireless earbuds and you'll get to download scrolls and other elements from the Fruit Box... I mean Apple Store... in between ads that pop up while your designing

    What pen (make/model) are you using? Do you use the Apple pencil?
    I use the Apple pencil. I believe others work as well but I have no idea what they are like.........the Apple pencil works well!!!

    Brian.........Yes, that is always the problem with any technology. It wears out eventually and needs replacing. But if the lights go out..........I still have my trusty old pencils and paper as backup

    And what do you mean "Sleeping with them under the pillows"...........My God man, the iPad has it's own bedroom with an ensuite!!!!!!!

    Cheers
    Andrew

    We have a 1st generation iPad (2010) that the grandkids play with. My iPad Air (2013) is still going strong and I use it every day. It's getting a little slower because newer versions of softwares are designed for faster processors, but it's still working perfectly. Abigail has an iPad Mini (2012) that she uses every day without any problems. We've never had one break down. Only upgraded for higher screen resolution and faster processing power.

    I'll give up my iPad when you pry my cold dead fingers from it.

    Actually I wondered about potential iPad Pro upgrade myself. I have the 12.9" version from April '16... What could they do to make me want to upgrade that? Don't need bigger screen, or faster processor, or more memory. Drawing experience is the best I've seen on any digital device so far. And I've tried many of those, from cheap chinese drawing tablets to Surface Pro, cintiq and quite a few others, I think around 10 different ones, or so. It is a tough act to follow.

    Like Sam mentioned, they tend to last very well. My other regular iPad is at least 4-5 years old, still see no reason to upgrade. Though now it is mainly for kids to play with...

    I said this some time ago, whether some people like it or not computers the cloud and batteries is the future, a pencil needs sharpening, papers get lost or misplaced, ink gets smeared, its the future, and we're are all witness to it.
