Has anyone tried downloading a large Logos library on to a 12.9 iPad Pro with 16 gig ram with the M1 chip and 1000 gig SSD drive.  Can it handle a library of some  12,000 resources effectively?

with the improvements in searching, etc. in the mobile app, it would be interesting.

No experience of this but I'm intrigued!

Have the found you get different / better search results when you have resources downloaded as opposed to accessing them in the cloud - assuming you have a reliable Internet connection?

I bought an iPad Air with 256 GB about 2 years ago. I have a huge library in Logos and the gobs of stuff I have downloaded into my Air don't make much of a dent at all. I think a big drive will easily handle your resources.

I have the 12.9" M1 with 256 gig RAM and my Logos library has 6,232 resources including many mobile ed courses with video, and i have had no problems at all running it with my entire library downloaded.

I've had my entire (10K) library downloaded on my iPad for years with no problems.

I have my entire library of over 11,000 resources downloaded on my iPad Mini 6.

Well, I have my 43,000 resources on my iPhone ... for 20 years and no problem!  Joking.

I have great internet at home, but I sometimes read where I do not have good internet.  In the past, even with good internet I found searching on the mobile app was sketchy.  But I have noted vast improvement in searching on the mobile app.  That coupled with the new M1 chip makes me think that the improved app plus the more powerful iPad could be a great combination.  Seriously considering purchasing the new gen iPad.

Thanks John.  That is the kind of information that I was looking for.
