Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Tablet Review

 

A great tablet, but not a pro. The iPad Pro 10.5 is Apple's second generation of the Pro-series. The screen is definitely the star of the show. It has not only grown in size, but it also offers 120 Hz, HDR and claims coverage of the P3 color space. The...

very good display ; fast Wi-Fi ; additional Apple SIM (LTE-versions only) ; speedy SoC ; decent speakers ; good battery runtimes

no support for Galileo GNSS ; pressure-sensitive case ; one-year warranty only ; display does not support P3 despite claims ; slower memory than predecessor ; long charging times

Apple has decided not to give the iPad Pro 10.5 a full makeover and instead made real improvements where it matters most. Particularly the new display is impressive - its great reflective properties and HDR capabilities will be particularly interesting...

The best tablet you can buy right now

 

It should be good for watching video, playing games, and reading. It should be thin, light, and have a battery that lasts.

Smaller footprint ; Lightweight ; Touch ID

Fewer accessories ; Seems to get less support than full-size iPads ; Fewer multitasking options

You can probably guess

Apple iPad Pro (10.5-Inch)

 

Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro tablet packs as much power as a laptop, but using iOS for pro-level applications will take some getting used to for many professionals.

Extremely fast. Light. Excellent screen and cameras. Better battery life than previous iPads.

Expensive. Using iOS for pro-level applications requires a shift in thinking. Screen technologies may be too advanced to perceive.

The current non-Pro iPad, starting at $329 for 32GB, is all the slate you need for traditional tablet use, which includes games, magazines, comics, and basic email, writing, and web browsing. The iPad Pro starts at twice the price ($649 for 64GB), and...

Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch review

 

Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the best tablet in the world, period.

Excellent display, with high refresh rate ; Buttery-smooth performance ; Long battery life ; Robust tablet-support apps ; Great camera, speakers

Pricey ; No fast charging

Apple’s latest iPad Pro is the best tablet you can buy. It excels in nearly every category, remains a fantastic tool for artists, and continues to define the tablet market.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 review: Where execution and ambition meet

 

iPad Pros have always been great options for people who need high-powered tablets, and the new 10.5-inch model is no exception. It's a more exciting update than it might initially seem: The screen is bigger and brighter than before, and the new A10X...

Incredibly powerful for an iPad ; Bigger, better screen ; Sleek (if familiar) design ; Great cameras

iOS 11 isn’t out yet ; Expensive ; Shorter battery life than some competing tablets

No matter how you slice it, $649 is a lot of money to drop on an iPad. In return, however, you get one of the most powerful tablets around. Most people like the idea of a second screen for occasional web browsing on the couch when they can't be...

The iPad Pro 10.5 is so good it’s basically showing off

 

Apple extends its tablet lead, but iOS 11 might end up being a bigger deal.

Incredible screen ; Slightly larger size makes typing easier ; Powerful processor

iOS 10 not built for all this power ; Expensive ; Accessories like the Smart Keyboard make it even more expensive

iPad Pro (10.5-inch, 2017) review

 

Apple's iPad has had eyes on eventually becoming the future of computing for years now, and it's been getting there in gradual steps. The 2015-2016 iPad Pro tablets made strides with a great Pencil stylus and seriously fast processing. From a hardware...

Excellent display, upgraded storage options, faster processor, better cameras and a bigger display in a still-compact size. Faster refresh-rate display also means faster Apple Pencil responsiveness.

Most of the cool new software features require iOS 11, which isn’t coming until September. No newly imagined accessories and the ones you need (Pencil, keyboard) drive up the cost to laptop levels.

Apple’s 2017 iPad Pros improve on already excellent drawing, video and photo capabilities, but its true potential won’t be seen until iOS 11 hits later this year.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Review

 

More than most tech companies out there, Apple is a manufacturer that really gets set in its ways: no doubt after a long period of careful consideration, Apple tends to decide, “this is how we're going to do things,” and keeps on doing that same thing,...

Big, beautiful screen (but not TOO big) ; Bassy, rich sound ; Day-long battery life ; Laptop-competitive performance ; Great camera for when you need it

With accessories, starts getting expensive, fast ; Even with split-screen, iOS doesn't feel optimized for tablets ; Audio recording when shooting video doesn't sound great

Apple strikes a very attractive balance with the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The larger screen size over the typical 9.7-inch variety gives you a tad more elbow room than you'd have on a smaller tablet, making things like reading text-dense websites...

Review: Apple's 2017 10.5" iPad Pro stuns with 120Hz ProMotion display

 

Apple's new 10.5-inch iPad Pro takes a device that was already a best-in-class tablet and makes it even better, headlined by a larger display with a stunning 120Hz refresh rate. But with a $649 starting price, Apple cuts just a few too many corners for...

iPad Pro 10.5 review

 

Is bigger always better?

Amazing audio ; Smooth and crisp screen ; Insanely powerful

High price ; Keyboard is necessary but extra ; Still not quite a laptop replacement

The iPad Pro 10.5 is the best iPad you can buy if you want an Apple tablet that balances entertainment, productivity and a sleek 10.5-inch form factor. With the tablet-focused iOS 11 update, it's easier to switch apps, even if it's not quite a...
