1.6 or 1.7 makes no difference to me at all. It should have an A9 or A9x chip. If it's not ready yet, then they should wait. I was looking forward to buying an iPad Pro, but if it's going to come with an A8X, just like in the Air 2, then I doubt that I'll upgrade, because it wouldn't really be an upgrade, more like a sidegrade, and I would just wait for the next iPad Pro 2, which will be more powerful.
