I saw this in another thread and thought it belonged here:

I don't know how you guys use iPads Pros in bed...
Which word should be pluralized?

Discuss. Of course, with how I cut this post, this has the potential to go horribly wrong.

Love the way you took that out if context. Kudos!

Well, the answer to your question may lie in this article, that is, assuming you accept Phil Schiller's suggestion as gospel:

I think this was previously discussed on eiC. Nonetheless, I think "iPads Pros", as that user wrote, is probably the one way to pluralize that particular noun that is definitely wrong, but that's just my opinion.

Oops. That was a typo. I meant to say iPad Pros.
