10.5” with Smart Keyboard to 12.9” (2018) without Smart Keyboard ?
Greetings, folks. Big iPad fan. Have a 10.5, pencil, and Smart Keyboard. Favorite device to use, for sure. Use it for work (emails, calendar, notes, basic documents work) and play (Netflix, reading, web browsing.)
I would love to get a 12.9 (w/pencil), but balk at the price for the Smart Keyboard. Is the extra screen real estate of the larger size enough to rely on the virtual keyboard and skip the Smart Keyboard? I have a small Bluetooth keyboard I could pull out when really needed, but I’m wondering if I can do without an external keyboard more with the larger screen.
Thoughts? Input from anyone mostly using the virtual keyboard on the larger size?
I’ve been to the Apple Store a few times, but a few minutes doesn’t give a proper sense of life without a keyboard.
(I’ll be buying a used one for financial reasons, and some good deals can be had that don’t include the keyboard.)
