After the destruction of my last iPad i must say im looking forward to these new IPads, i just hope they dont go iPhone X crazy with pricing. 5.more RAM and secondary storage. It would be nice to see 4GB or more RAM. The surprise here is that im not worried about most Apps! What im hoping for is explotation by the system including more of Siri running locally. As for secondary storage whom out there can claim having enough SSD. Ok almost ten wishes, what do people think?

Now would be a very good time for Apple to make iPad Pros multi-user devices. Beyond that, the current iPad Pros are so far ahead of everything else in the market that Apple is just piling on with incrementalism if all they do is jack up hardware performance and add slightly new ways to support the same core feature set that's little changed over 3 or 4 previous releases. The current iPad Pros are powerhouse computers that are being held back by the limitations of iOS. I'm not knocking iOS for what it is, a stalwart 10 year old OS built for smartphones and their larger tablet based siblings. I certainly don't mind that running iOS apps on the iPad Pro provides amazing performance. But I still feel like I'm using a bazooka for plinking pop cans when using the current iPad Pro, much less what's probably in the next round of iPad Pro releases. Heck, it's easily more powerful than my MacBook Air. However, I'm not advocating for macOS on iPad Pro. I am looking for something new, touch centric, and purpose built for the immense power that the iPad Pro has available to exploit. Something way beyond iOS, but not something tied to the creaky old bones of macOS.To the 10.5" versus 12.9" question. I have both and find that when I want to use an iPad in my hands, on the couch, when riding as a passenger in a car/plane/train, etc., the 10.5" inch iPad Pro is always my first choice. It is little larger than the 9.7" but the 10.5" screen is much more usable in portrait orientation. The 12.9" is great on the desk with the smart keyboard. The 12.9" is very good for sit down side-by-side demonstrations and screen sharing. The 12.9" is truly a beast size wise but I suspect the next generation will have a reduced bezel to make it a little less beastly. When I use the 12.9" sans keyboard on the couch it feels even bigger, especially in portrait orientation. The screen rendering in portrait orientation is wonderful, but its sheer height and to a lesser extent its weight feels a bit awkward and is something that takes some getting used to.
