2018 iPad storage question – how deep is the iOS rabbit hole?
I’m considering a 2018 iPad for use as an instant-on take-anywhere word processor, using the likes of Scrivener or Ulysses or something similar. Of course I’d also use it for the usual media consumption and web browsing stuff everyone else uses it for as well.
I’m an Android user and I’ve never had a lot of contact with iOS, and so I’m not very familiar with the Apple ecosystem. I was originally thinking I’d just get the cheaper 32GB version, but now I’m second-guessing myself. Should I go with the 128GB version instead? I usually stream movies instead of download them, and I don’t play a lot of games, but I’m wondering how much of a gateway drug the iPad would be – would I end up installing lots of additional apps? I’m fairly sophisticated when it comes to tech and I really like to play with technology and try new things, so I can imagine that I’d install quite a few apps just to try them out. I’ve also heard that iOS versions of apps are better than the Android versions, so I can also see the iPad taking over some of the things I currently use my laptop or my phone for (reading comic books, for example).
So I guess what I’m asking is, how important is the extra space for someone like me? Also, would the additional memory be worth it in terms of resale value a few years later?
EDIT: That didn’t take long. It looks like it’s pretty much unanimous that I should go for the upgraded storage. Thanks, everyone!
