I blew the dust off my 2018 iPad, which I have not used for months, and I like it. It’s a good size. The 12.9”iPad Pro is unwieldy.
I use the iPad almost exclusively for reading news and social media in the evening and weekends
Buying the 12.9” was the right decision at the time but now it is a bit of a white elephant.
On the other hand, spare computers are good things to have in my business
