Buy an Apple iPad Pro 10.5 512GB Wi-Fi+Cell4772

Hi All,

Looking at the specs of the (just announced) Apple iPad Pro 10.5, it looks like Matterport Pros will see scans processing much faster on the iPad, plus there's an option for 512GB which will help with the Pro2 Spaces that (I believe) will be twice as large as Spaces created using the Pro1. (Until Matterport offers a cloud-hosted back and restore solution, follow this process.)

Plus, with iOS 11 coming Fall 2017, it gets extra exciting

My birthday is coming up. Thought I would drop a hint:

✓ iPad Pro 10.5 Inch
✓ Silver
✓ 512GB
✓ Wi-Fi + Cellular
✓ AppleCare

Total: $1,178 plus tax and gift wrapping paper and Hallmark Card

While you could get the iPad Pro with 256GB + WiFi + AppleCare for $848 - $330 less, if you are going to do a lot of Matterport scanning, pay the extra.

(I like the Cellular feature for uploading while driving home for a shoot, etc. You can always tether to iPhone to save on the cost of the Cellular feature. For $10/month on Verizon on our shared family plan, I'm happy.)

By the Way

1. If you are thinking about how much does it cost to buy a Matterport Camera, Cloud Hosting, iPad and nearly 20 other essential gear and accessories, use the We Get Around How Much Does it Cost to Start a Matterport Service Provider Business Calculator. We Get Around Network Forum Members get the free use of the Calculator. Please PM me for the password.

2. If you just bought pre-ordered a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera:

-- please buy a 256GB or 512GB (ideally) iPad Pro (if you buy a 64GB, it will fill up super-fast). Don't delete.
-- don't buy an old iPad (much slower for processing)

Hi All,

If you have been on the phone with a Matterport Sales Rep, which iPad are they recommending and why?
