    My guess that it’s the display model. I got a 10.2 256GB iPad for £300 from the Stevenage store a couple of weeks ago. They had just put it out on display as I walked into the store and snapped it.

    Yes it is possible, though last time they had display models marked so. I was in a hurry so didn't look for staff to ask.

    It depends on what you use it for. I already struggled justifying the 2020 one over the 2018 one as I am just not using the processing or graphics power.

    I have the 2018 version and my gf has the 21 version. I can tell no difference, unless you use it for video editing or CAD etc... There's no noticeable difference. Better camera I guess, but that just something I use when my phone isn't nearby. Lidar is better but again, will that be used?

    For me it was because I can use it with my Thunderbolt Display and Thunderbolt accessories but for most people probably not! I also got the 12.9 with the mini led so that’s more of an upgrade.

    It’s tough for me to say as I’ve only got the OG iPad Pro 2015 and 10.5 iPad Pro before this. What I would say is that HDR video on it looks better than anything else I’ve seen including LG OLED TVs due to the very high brightness levels for HDR. In normal usage the nits are about the same as LCD iPads. I’m happy with my choice but the size alone (I use it as a none laptop replacement) means not for everyone. Hopefully we’ll get that display on the 11 inch this year.

    Not for me but I was a casual user surfing net , odd movie , games etc . I have a family member working in Apple so had a 27 percent discount so was worth a punt but I returned it and back to iPad Pro . I couldn’t tell any quality in picture at all behind mini led 12.9 and smaller 2021 iPad Pro.

    Frankly the poster above mentioning the picture of iPad 12.9 been better than OLED TV is absolute waffle. Brightness on 12.9 is no sub for 48-55 Inch OLED and lovely as the pic quality is on iPad is. the colour processing , depth of picture is far superior on OLEDs vs any tablet ( owner of 2 OLEDs) .

    Peak nit brightness isn’t waffle it is the whole reason they selected mini LED. It’s known that OLEDs (much like plasma) are actually pretty poor in well lit areas due to their poor peak brightness so you’re the one who clearly doesn’t know what you’re talking about actually. Standard advice is QLED in a room with lots of natural light. The latest tech is to combine them (look at the soon to be released Alienware monitor with a panel made by Samsung) to negate the issues of both. If you want a direct comparison peak brightness is also one of the negatives highlighted on most Samsung S7+ tablet reviews or basically any phone reviews but on smaller OLED they have been able to push peak brightness and peak HDR much more (especially iPhone 13 Pro Max and S21 Ultra). Go back to your dark OLED friendly man cave and do some actual research on the area which isn’t just owning an OLED TV.

    Alienware 34 Curved QD-OLED: What is quantum dot?

    Quantum Dot display technology, pioneered by Samsung, pairs the crispness and pixel-perfect contrast of OLED with the boosted brightness and expanded color that quantum-dot technology delivers. The result is (ideally) a best-of-both-worlds display that offers the impeccable quality of OLED without sacrificing the brightness and color that QLED panels offer.

    On the 34 Curved QD-OLED Alienware says that quantum dot tech delivers superior color performance with a higher peak luminance and greater color gamut range compared to white OLED (WOLED). The trick? QD-OLED directly converts blue light in the primary colors of read and green through a Quantum Dot pixel layer. For more, see our what is QD-OLED explainer.

    You clearly don’t understand the technology and have been found wanting as again that’s a subjective statement with no actual facts. What relevance does your choice of a TV over an iPad have to do with the technology involved? Nothing. I’ve just shown you the whole reason they have developed QD-OLED and the fact you can’t provide a decent response (because you don’t understand the technology) shows that. Nothing to do with your energy and everything to do with your capabilities. Subjective means that’s your opinion by the way

    What an absolutely bizarre reply but as looking at your other comments you are clearly triggered by owner bias . I didn’t say peak brightness is waffle I said comparing the screen on an iPad Pro 12.9 mini led to a premium TV is absolutely ridiculous. I’ve owned the 12.9 mini LED and well positioned to call how absurd it is comparing an iPad to an OLED TV. It doesn’t come close to Any premium TV picture be it OLED , QLED or FALD. and your standard generic copy and paste comments like QLED for a bright room and only OLED for a dark room Shows you have no real word experience and just regurgitating what you read online.

    Much happier with money towards my Sony A90J that the mini LED of iPad 12.9 and sticking with iPad Pro 11.

    It’s not bizarre at all. The peak brightness of the TV you mentioned is 915 nits vs 1600 nits on the iPad Pro for HDR content. Since HDR is very dependent on brightness it’s much more noticeable on the iPad Pro (it’s literally designed for people to make HDR content!). Obviously other technologies including image processing are factors but again your subjective opinion on viewing preferences has no relevance to the technology itself. OLED TVs are great and we all prefer a larger canvas for watching media but that doesn’t make it better technically. That’s the whole reason QD-OLED is coming. I’ve literally sat next to a G1 to compare them. I’ll wait until OLED can match that peak brightness (and that’s one of the best for brightness). If you’re in a darker room or cinema room of course 915 nits is plenty but outside in daylight the much higher nits makes a massive difference in smaller phone OLEDs or on this iPad. Have seen so many of my friends regretting their OLED purchases for the location they have in mind in a well lit natural room and having to move round their entire room due to this exact issue that I put the money into other things (mainly B1 and C1 to be fair). No owner bias from me as I own a lot of different brands and types of technology and use many more at work. I know iPad Pro mini led has its flaws such as blooming but not on the HDR front.

    Should have waited for the Sony A95K. Literally solves the issues raised at 1500 nits peak with the QD-OLED. It will be interesting to compare that to their Z9K in a bright room for HDR though sure they A95K will be better overall.

    Nonsense - I see it here a lot with here with people like youself who comment with total certainty about products when they have no real world experience of the products they discussing and resort to “ I know lots of people “ story to back up their view. It’s such a simplistic view to say OLED for dark room and QLED or FALD for brighter as many main rooms both dark at night tv watching and bright during day (when I work mostly) so it’s not one extreme or the other.

    You think sitting next to G1 with your iPad is a good comparison, iPad is like postage stamp in comparison side by side . I have no remorse in the slightest with 55aj90 best gaming and TV picture I’ve ever seen on a 55 inch and below.

    They literally invented a new type of panel on QD-OLED to combat the issue so it’s not nonsense it’s just science and the limitation of traditional OLED technology. Having had similar issues with my G20 Panasonic plasma in well lit rooms and having seen the same issues in several installations peak brightness is a very well known issue on OLED. It’s also the reason it haven’t been used in many larger monitors until now with QD-OLED. It’s ok for you to be wrong when the very TV company you own have bought Samsung QD-OLED panels to combat the exact issue of peak brightness in OLED. Sony have literally validated everything I said from a technical standpoint this week at CES. It doesn’t make either of your OLED TVs bad it just makes me right and not subjective or bias.

    I enjoy a good debate as much as the next person but your passive aggressive manner makes you totally tone deaf to other opinions as called out by other posters on this thread .

    I don’t know why you keep talking about Peak brightness over and over. There are many more factors involved in a viewing experience and higher peak brightness on a 12.9 is no match for an overall viewing experience on a half decent TV like a 55 inch C1 . You totally catch yourself out telling me I should have waited for a95k when you actually own tv that most people moved on from 10 years ago so enough of hypocritical waffle haha. Apology accepted

    I own other TVs that are newer but actually the Panasonic plasmas (though not quite pioneer kuro levels is one of the few 1080p plasmas) are still much sought after and the THX mode is still very accurate (especially as I use mine only for retro gaming due to the connections). The sky engineer actually asked me to name my price at the last installation. Moved on doesn't make something always better for certain things. Here is a video done today that literally states exactly what I've said about the limitations of current OLED. Vincent knows a lot more than both of us (but says exactly what I have here to again prove me right). I picked up a cheap Samsung Frame 49 2020 as I don't really watch TV and one cable connect box and wall mount suited a house with a young kid and have sky glass too. Both aren't special or have great peak brightness for HDR (one is actually 8 bit) but I've not seen an OLED worth it yet until the a95k due to the peak brightness requirements I'd need. Not a question of money but (subjectively) I've put the money into computing until the technology needed is available (which it will be this year) but might go into the monitor in the video instead of a TV.

    You are just arguing with yourself at this point. Where are you getting I’m saying anything about the tech involved or OLED is better . I’m saying give me an OLED TV anynday over viewing a movie on a 12.9 iPad regardless if the screen is LCD, OLED or Mini LED.
    Sitting next to C1 with your iPad mini led is probably the most cringe comparison I’ve heard of on here . I’m over the moon with A90J and Philips 806 and was totally underwhelmed by the screen on the iPad 12.9 mini LED and I returned it. No match for any OLED or decent FALD TV .

    You still don't seem to understand the difference between subjective opinion on choice of consumption and comparison on the benefits and limitations of the technology. I fully understand the technology but if you don't know Vincent from HDTVTest who validates everything I stated it shows your the one that doesn't understand technology. A man who gets paid about £5k a day (I know this from people who have worked with him) has just said everything I have about the differences in that technology. The whole reason the iPad is mini LED is so it can achieve higher peak brightness than OLED and it's very noticeable, it will moved to OLED when the technology can match the peak brightness. How you choose to watch something is not the same as the technology behind it. Amazing how everything tech company including in that video does side by side comparisons yet because of the difference in size or format you don't understand why someone would do the same. I also fully accept why you'd prefer watching content on a TV over and iPad. I'm fine with you not replying as anyone who doesn't understand subjective opinion isn't capable of debate and is wasting my time.
