I've been using my iPhone 5S quite heavily, I do everything on it. I also have a macbook which is its big brother. Every time I do my assignment, it sync through iCloud to my pages app on my iPhone . I love it . So there is no need for an iPad. I had the iPad 4th generation. Then gave it to my girl. No regrets. How wants the iPad air although they bought the iPhone 5S? I wouldn't mind having it if I were rich. Lol.
