The Air is going to cost a little less by using a slightly older chip, not being as bright, not having quite as fluid motion (which you won't notice), and a single camera.

Both use Apple Pencil 2.0, which I think is a must given the capacity of what tablets can do.

For your needs, you will likely be very happy with an Air. If you want the cellular version, then you might consider the Pro because the cellular Pro has 5g while the cellular Air only has 4g.

Also, if you want the Air, wait a month or so. They may announce an update.

Here is Apple's comparison page:

https://www.apple.com/ipad/compare/?...d-mini-6th-gen


It should be auto-selected to compare the iPad Pro 11" 3rd generation with the iPad Air 4th Gen (the current ones). If you want larger and don't mind spending money, you can get the larger pro. For me, it's too large, and I'm a heavy iPad Pro user. If I did more with graphics, I might think differently.

I just bought my DW an 11" iPad Pro for XMAS. Her previous was 10.5" 2017 iPad Pro. Both were cellular models. Her old machine will be waterfall'd to one of the kids.

I'm so glad this thread came up again. I still haven't purchased a new iPad nor made a final decision on which one I want. However, it will be Wifi + cellular. I like the convenience.

I stopped getting +cellular a couple of models ago when budget was tight and I wanted to upgrade. Now, I can afford the cellular. I just got the latest Pro when it came out (WiFi only, because that's what I'm used to), so I probably won't upgrade for a couple of years, but I do agree it is convenient. Once going back to onsite meetings becomes a reality, the convenience factor will be real.

Mine is completely dead, but Iíve gotten distracted with life and havenít purchased yet either. We are about to rip out all carpet and replace with hardwood, so that will come before a new toy, um, tablet.
