The model selected has 256GB of storage and it also has LTE cellular capability. The newer models now offer up to 1TB of storage which is probably excessive.

The smaller iPads tend to have less RAM and the LCD resolution is not as high. The unit selected was the flagship model.

The larger 12.9″ model has better contrast than the lower cost 9.7″ model. This is due entirely to the larger retina display used with the full size iPad Pro.

With 4GB of RAM, the iPad Pro 12.9GB should be viable for updates for quite some time to come.

Until this winter, none of the mobile providers were offering a data only service for iPad users. Apple also has LTE capable watches which are even more of a headache in Canada.
