    You mention that it's the first regular iPad to offer pencil support, however I thought the previous generation iPad did

    The iPad Air definitely has had Pencil support for some time and you're right about iPad 6th Gen having support as well.

    Just out of interest, what is "the top-selling Windows PC"?

    A Series 3 Apple Watch for £199 is tempting, very tempting. I find my FitBit can be limiting at times. Will have to consider this.

    Worth noting that the ipad is basically the same as last year, just 0.5 inches bigger and a price rise in the UK.

    Is it a price rise or just a weaker pound?

    Haven't heard of the reasoning, currency rates being the reason wouldn't surprise me. Regardless of the reason, it's still a price rise to us.

    I want to know this, tbh is always workload related, but how relevant is the workload being used to test that statement though...
