Ipad Pro 9.7 question.

Not sure if this is the right section to post.Apologies in advance.

Thinking of buying an Ipad Pro 9.7 - Been doing a bit of reading up & are quite concerned about the many reports of battery related problems when updating to the last few revisions of IOS 10 (Devices turning off at 30% etc).

Most reports seem to be about Iphones.My question is - Are IPads affected by any of these problems? (My old AIR is still on IOS 9).

My iPad Pro 9.7 holds a charge extremely well. I use it for work quite heavily and typically only charge it after an hour or so of gaming after I get home. My 6S on the other hand, that is on the recall list that I rarely use, dies at 30% usually on my way home from work while streaming Apple Music.

Could my pro better on batter? Sure. But this is my fourth iPad and it has a better battery life for me than from the previous models.
