I purchased a new 10.5" iPad Pro last week when Best Buy was having their big Apple sale ($499 down from $650). I love it and will most likely buy Pixelmator Photo when it is available. However, I started wondering if I should return the 10.5" iPad and go with the 11" instead. I know the 11" has a much faster processor. Is the difference noticeable in normal Pixelmator Photo use? I'm also wondering if the USB-C connector will prove to be a much easier way to work with photos? Any thoughts?

Most things are definitely faster, so anything that intensively uses the chip (ML Fix, opening large RAW photos, repairing areas) is around 2 times faster if I'm not mistaken. For other editing tasks — adjusting colors, cropping, straightening, you probably won't notice as significant a difference. Overall, you should obviously still have a great editing experience on a 2nd gen iPad Pro.
