Pro(2018) vs Air(2019)
I’ve been offered to choose between the iPad Pro(2018) and the Air(2019) by my parents and I can’t reach a conclusion for one particular reason: *Longevity and Future proofing*
The Pro is a bigger investment but lasts about 6 years while maintaining good speed. The introduction of USB-C, how much of a difference would it make?
The Air is a smaller investment but the lower price and life of ~4 years makes it easier to *switch to a newer model sooner.*
How many years can the 2018 iPad Pro keep up with technology and how will it perform after ~4 years?
AFAIK from couple of online reviews the Pro’s hardware is ahead of its time(so I’m also looking forward to its performance after software updates) while the iPad Air is a steal for what it offers.
P.S.: This comparison might seem pointless, but since I’ve been offered a choice I decided to get some help. For my needs, the pro doesn’t win overwhelmingly, so I do t think it’s justified to pay 300 extra for it.
