Apple iPad Pro Tablet Review

 

Big – Bigger – iPad Pro! The iPad Air is huge and for the first time has the stylus functionality. The Apple Pencil is mainly designed for creative users. The Californians have also equipped the tablet with the fastest SoC you can currently get in a...

great design and build quality, very good stylus (optional), fast SoC, excellent display, great speakers, very good runtimes

scaling of iOS, weak and hot power adaptor, long charging times, no NFC, only LTE Cat. 4, expensive accessories

Even though many users think that it is an affront that Apple has developed a large tablet and even a corresponding pen, the result is very convenient. The Californians certainly did not reinvent the device class, but once again, they have managed to...

Adobe Photoshop Sketch Review with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

 

Over the past week and a half I've been using the app Adobe Photoshop Sketch for iOS with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. It's not what I expected. I expected it to be an experience in which the stylus (the Apple Pencil) would be speedy and the app...

Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a perfect example of why artists and designers should give the iPad Pro some real thoughtful consideration. Along with the Apple Pencil, the iPad Pro and Adobe Photoshop Sketch feel as though they were made for one another.

The Apple iPad Pro Review

 

At this point it probably isn't a secret that tablet sales have leveled off, and in some cases they have declined. Pretty much anywhere you care to look you'll see evidence that the tablet market just isn't as strong as it once was. It's undeniable...

Overall, the iPad Pro has proven to be a very different experience for me than previous iPads. The design is definitely familiar, with the same industrial design and general feel as previous iPads scaled up to a 12.9” form factor. However, the change...

iPad Pro review: Big and powerful, but it won't replace your laptop

 

Here we are. Apple, the same company that once swore off styluses, and dismissed hybrid PCs as experiments gone wrong, is now selling a laptop/tablet mashup of its own. One that accepts pen input, at that. The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro went on sale last...

So far, the most comfortable iPad Pro keyboard ; Backlit ; Useful shortcut keys ; Less expensive than Apple's own keyboard

Relatively bulky ; Difficult to put on and take off ; As on other iPad Pro keyboards, the screen isn't adjustable and there's no touchpad

The Create is the first third-party keyboard for the iPad Pro. Though it suffers from some of the same drawbacks as Apple's offering, it's still the clear winner, with handy shortcut keys, backlighting and a more comfortable typing experience. If...

The iPad Pro is here: Now its trial-by-fire begins

 

You already know it's big, and that it's powerful, but does the iPad Pro have what it takes to survive on the road as a true notebook replacement? Apple's 12.9-inch tablet is the biggest outing for iOS to-date, and just as we realized back when it was...

5 things I noticed in my first hours with the iPad Pro

 

Our iPad Pro was delivered this morning, and while we're still working on the review, a few things became immediately clear.

Like I said, I’ll be spending the next week or so using the iPad Pro as my main computing device, avoiding my trusty MacBook Air whenever possible. That means I’ll be using the iPad Pro quite a bit while sitting at a desk—not my usual location for iPad...

Apple iPad Pro space gray, 32GB

 

Aesthetically identical to the iPad Air 2 , the 9.7-inch iPad Pro features some significant improvements over its super-sized Pro sibling. Chief among them are a much more reasonable base price ($599 vs. $799); a 12-megapixel rear camera that records...

The new iPad Pro is the biggest and fastest Apple tablet to date. The pressure-sensitive Pencil stylus offers superior sketching and drawing, and the Pro's gorgeous giant screen and quad speakers are ideal for split-screen apps, multitasking and...

At launch, very few apps are currently optimized to take advantage of the iPad Pro's full potential. Its large size makes it less portable than other iPads. Once you've paid for the Pencil and keyboard peripherals, the iPad Pro costs as much as a good...

The iPad Pro is a dream machine for graphic designers and media mavens, but this elegant tablet needs more optimized apps and accessories before it can fully achieve laptop-killer status.

iPad Pro review:

 

As we edge closer to the introduction of the next generation of iPhones expected this fall, the near-term future of the iPad line is anything but certain. In March 2016, Apple unveiled a smaller version of the original, 12.9-inch iPad Pro (reviewed...

The iPad Pro Preview: Taking Notes With iPad Pro

 

For the past week, I've been working on a review of the iPad Pro. For better or worse it has been a very quick week and I've been working on the review right up to the embargo time. Rather than rushing out our review of Apple's first large-format...

Finally, as everyone is undoubtedly eagerly anticipating our look at the A9X SoC inside the iPad Pro, let’s take a very quick look at what we know about the SoC so far. There’s a bit of a limit to what we can do blindly via just software, but I’m...

Living with an iPad Pro

 

As Dr. Mac told you last week, he's been testing a 128GB iPad Pro with a new Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard and while it won't replace his laptop, it has quickly become his iPad of choice for a variety of reasons (which you'll only discover if you...
