No.

Once owned a new one for a month, but couldn't find a use for it so sold it again.

But have had an Android tablet since the first Xoom came out.

Pricing also plays a role, need a new tablet now, and am interested in the iPad Pro 11", but at over R25k for the appropriate model that is just not on.

Primarily for researching and organising porn, watching and playing porn particularly while away from my desk, during flights, or while driving.

Well, I actually don't. I actually won one in a competion which the wife claimed, then the kids have one each but I am tired of the effort sorting them out all the time, account locks, forget passwords etc. I am going to get them all a Samsung A1/6 (Can't recall the model) as at least it is something I can understand. I do own a macbook but it remains in its box, used exactly once, so if anyone is looking for one, let me know, we can make a deal. :)

Nope pretty pointless if you only have an ipad, far more useful in a apple ecosystem, which is why I love android.

No, I don't and I don't ever plan on having one. Been happy with Andriod every since. Freedom is bliss.

IPad is very convenient for various things on the go like email, youtube and favorite apps. The screen size is the deciding factor over a cell phone.

Remarkably simple now with Screentime in iOS 12.

Wouldn't even consider giving them Android tables even if their schools did allow it.
