Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) Tablet Review

 

Big Player. The Apple iPad Pro 12.9 has been updated not only with a faster SoC but also with an improved camera and display. We haven't found much to criticize, but the giant amongst its brethren is not a full replacement for a laptop just yet.

great display ; high-quality workmanship ; decent speakers ; fast long-range Wi-Fi ; fast CPU ; decent battery life

no support for Galileo-GNSS ; pressure-sensitive case ; only one year of warranty ; despite claims to the contrary, display does not support P3 ; storage slower than with the predecessor ; long charging time ; no quick charge

On paper, the iPad Pro 12.9 is no more than a larger iPad Pro 10.5, but in real-life it is quite a bit different in several aspects. The well-calibrated display with its exceptionally accurate color accuracy in particular was very impressive; the...

Apple iPad Pro (12.9-Inch, 2017)

 

Apple's 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablet is more like a full-scale iOS laptop—which is great if you can get all of your work done in iOS applications.

Laptop-level power. Surprisingly light. Plenty of screen real estate.

Expensive. Apps don't quite complete most workflows.

But by and large, most iPad buyers should go for the $329 non-Pro model. If you just want a thousand-dollar ultraportable laptop, meanwhile, should take a look at the Razer Blade Stealth, the new Microsoft Surface Laptop, and the older, but still...

iPad Pro 12.9 review: a great iPad, one I won’t buy

 

But maybe iOS 11 will change my mind

Improved display ; Powerful processor ; Better camera ; Large screen ideal for pros and creative types

Expensive ; Accessories not included ; PC power, but with the limitations of a mobile OS

Apple iPad Pro (12.9 inch)

 

Apple's supersized iPad Pro brings the concept of a digital sketchbook to the next level, but now iOS app developers have to match the power of OS X and Windows apps.

Laptop-level power. Surprisingly light. Pencil accessory is the best stylus experience on a mainstream tablet.

Very expensive. Touch-centric UI with keyboard is awkward. Apps don't quite complete your workflow.

Comparisons and Conclusions We've seen iPads before. We've seen keyboard cases. We've even seen lots of styli. But as happens so often, Apple has remixed existing elements into something new, driven by design, ease-of-use, and compelling third-party apps.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 Review

 

Sometimes “mobile” devices don't seem particularly mobile, and as our drive for more features, better battery life, and bigger screens influences the product offerings of manufacturers, we can easily find ourselves looking at larger and larger products.

Beautiful display image quality ; Bass-rich, immersive sound ; Day-long battery life ; Laptop-competitive performance ; Great camera for when you need it ; Split-screen works better than on 10.5-inch model

Just too big for casual tablet usage ; With accessories, starts getting extra expensive, fast ; iOS still doesn't feel particularly optimized for tablets ; Audio recording when shooting video doesn't sound great ; Lengthy recharge times

By all objective measures, the second-gen 12.9-inch iPad Pro is one of the best-performing tablets we've ever crossed paths with. It combines a brilliant display, powerful number-crunching capabilities, speakers that are far better than those that have...

Review: Apple's 2017 12.9" iPad Pro gains feature parity with its smaller sibling

 

Staggered launches of the first generation of iPad Pro tablets left the larger 12.9-inch model in an awkward position, lacking key professional-grade features like always-on Hey Siri and a color balancing True Tone display. Apple has rectified that...

Choosing between the 10.5- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro is a much simpler choice in 2017, thanks to the fact that Apple decided this go around to include the same hardware in both.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2017 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Apple's latest iPad is a large 12.9-inch model, replacing the previous model from 2015. The improvements on the box add up to a faster processor, and in theory, a brighter screen. Otherwise though, little has changed. Does the additional speed and...

The iPad Pro 12.9 - Apple's largest tablet to date - aims to satisfy customer demand for bigger-screen devices. And with the titular 12.9-inch display also comes the ability to split the screen for multitasking and a faster processor. Read on to see...

iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) vs Surface Pro 5: Which is the best laptop replacement?

 

We weigh up the specs, design, features and price of the iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) and Surface Pro 5 (2017), to help you decide which is the best laptop-replacement tablet on the market right now

They're widely marketed as pretenders to the same throne - the laptop-replacement tablet of choice for business and creative users - but the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 5 are quite different in a lot of ways.

iPad Pro 12.9in (2017) vs iPad Pro 12.9in (2015)

 

We compare the 2015 and 2017 models of the iPad Pro 12.9in, to help you decide if it's worth upgrading

It's been almost two years since the iPad Pro first came into our lives, so it's just about possible that early adopters' bank accounts have recovered sufficiently to start considering an upgrade. And this is a pretty decent (if unexciting) upgrade to...
