Should I upgrade from iPad 6th gen?
Hi I’m an artist and recently swallowed my pride and bought an iPad 6th gen with a pencil. I was pretty lucky and survived the ordeal with only around £270 spent. Bought it from Ebay, and it works just fine. Battery life is good the pencil is probably the best pressure sensitive pen I’ve ever used short of a wacom pen. I love the little thing, and a bonus easycanvas works without a hitch with it. However recently I had a commission that required me to work on a large file. Over 900mmx400mm at 300 DPI it was too much for procreate to handle. I’ve managed to load the file up in clip studio however and so far it didn’t crash on me (apart from the very first time I’ve loaded the file, but not since). I do feel that clip studio is a bit sluggish while I pan and zoom, but line strokes come out responsive nonetheless. I’m torn on the question of should I upgrade to the new iPad Pro. If I do I’d only go for the big one the 12.9 inch version with 64GB storage. The cheapest I could find on buy it now on Ebay was around £800. Selling my current ipad would probably net me around £260 and selling my Huion Kamvas Pro 13 would probably get me another £250, so the majority of the cost would be covered. Is the new Ipad Pro worth the investment? Have you been in similar situation? If you have 2 cents to add please do so.
