Thanks for sharing your first deal post @bookmaniac I've added some price and delivery info to the opening post
These are £769 from Apple and John Lewis. John Lewis offer free 2 year warranty but I’ve never known an iPad to fail. They’re more reliable than an iPhone in my experience and the batteries last longer without any problems.

The 10.3” iPad Pro is amazing and very fast and responsive. You won’t be disappointed. My only criticism is that it is heavier than the original 9.7” iPad Pro or iPad Air 2. Combined with the extra size it feels significantly heavier to hold in one hand due to the extra turning moment (heavier plus centre of gravity further from the base).

Finally note you only get GPS with the cellular models so if you want to use it for SatNav pay the extra and get cellular even if you never use the cellular feature. (I use had cheap £15 EE 6GB SIM cards that last three months though which is pretty good value).

Never knew about the GPS only being available on the cellular version, I thought it was standard in both. Thanks for that. Might need to get a cellular version now, do they support 4G? Also do they come unlocked or are they locked to the first SIM put inside?

Yes all cellular iPads have supported 4G LTE for many years. I always use EE who claim to have better network coverage and double-speed 4G compared to other operators.

EE are the best for iPhones too. Only EE and O2 offer the full range of iPhone features and remarkably some operators are so poor that they still don’t offer basic iPhone features like Visual Voicemail or WiFi calling. I guess they think most users have never had those features and don’t know what they are so they can get away without them. See support.apple.com/en-…040

iPads are never locked to a network in my experience (they may be if you buy from a mobile operator but I’ve never done that).

LTE = 4G

VoLTE = Voice calls over 4G network. Without this your iPhone has to use 3G for voice calls which may be a problem if you good 4G signal but poor 3G which is common as 4G signals have greater range. It also offers fasterc call connection time and better audio quality - see 4g.co.uk/wha…te/

WiFi calling lets you make and receives phone calls (and SMS) over WiFi without a mobile signal. I can make phone calls in underground tube stations or areas with no mobile signal, as long as WiFi is working. I use it by default so mobile calls at home or work are routed over WiFi which saves battery life.

Not it many people know about these features or understand that some operators offer services that others don’t.

Im still astonishing how many people don’t even know about Visual Voicemail which was a key selling point of the original iPhone but still not available on all networks 10 years later.

I love visual voicemail I can’t live without it, instead of calling voicemail it comes on a list you can save and delete voicemail easy
