iPad Pro 12.9 review (2018): The future of computing?

 

Don't be fooled by its new, even more minimalist design: Apple's revamped 12.9-inch iPad Pro is overkill, plain and simple. We have a few things for thank for that, like the absurdly fast A12X Bionic chipset (which actually runs faster than some of the...

New easy-to-hold design ; Beautiful Liquid Retina display ; USB-C for flexibility and faster charging ; Fast performance ; Up to 1TB of storage ; Much-improved Apple Pencil

Non-base configurations get expensive ; iOS 12 feels limited on this ambitious hardware ; Lots of trial-and-error to find compatible USB accessories ; No support for external storage

And there's the rub for me: I have no doubt that some people could use the iPad Pro exclusively and be satisfied. It's more than powerful enough for 4K video editing, photo retouching and stupidly elaborate Photoshop work, not to mention who knows how...

iPad Pro 2018 review: A powerful, beautiful tablet that needs a software overhaul

 

Big, gorgeous, screaming-fast tablet? Absolutely. Laptop replacement? Not until iOS changes and compatible accessories arrive.

The 2018 iPad Pro sports a gorgeous new all-screen design, Face ID and scary-fast performance. The new Pencil is a huge step forward in terms of design and charging.

The Keyboard Folio Case and Pencil are necessary accessories that jack up the already-high total price. None of your old iPad accessories will work, including the original Pencil. The headphone jack is gone, and its single USB-C port won't pay real...

The new iPad Pro is in many ways the pinnacle of tablet hardware design, but its nosebleed price and software limitations narrow its appeal to creatives willing to bend to its current compromises.

Apple iPad Pro (12.9-Inch, 2018)

 

The latest Apple iPad Pro is an amazing feat of engineering, but it doesn't have the applications for truly pro-level workflows.

Amazingly fast hardware. Excellent networking capabilities. Good cameras. New Apple Pencil is terrific.

Hardware is held back by its operating system.

The standard $329 iPad, which is really $600 to $800 once you add the keyboard, Pencil, and storage options you want, is a great little computer at the right price. For drawing, word processing, web browsing, a bit of photo editing, some content...

Apple iPad Pro review 2018: the fastest iPad is still an iPad

 

The thing about bullet trains is that they're always on rails

Beautiful, high refresh rate display ; USB-C port makes life easier ; Apple Pencil is far more practical ; Extremely powerful

Expensive ; No USB-C storage device support ; No headphone jack ; iPad app ecosystem underdeveloped and feature-limited ; iOS limitations are extremely frustrating

But you know what? It’s still an iPad.

The new iPad Pro 12.9 inch is amazingly powerful, outperforming laptops with Core i7 processors while offering a thinner and lighter full-screen design.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2018, LTE, 256 GB) Tablet Review

 

Strong and expensive. The release of the third generation of Apple's huge tablet has coincided with a complete redesign that shares more design cues with the new iPhone XS series than classic iPhones. Apple has equipped its most-expensive tablet with...

great display ; stylish design ; good speakers ; fast Wi-Fi ; powerful SoC ; impressive battery life ; quick LTE connectivity ; eSIM support for dual-SIM functionality

large camera bump ; software restrictions ; the main camera is largely unchanged ; limited USB Type-C features ; long load times ; only 12 months warranty ; no expandable storage

The Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) not only impressed us during Apple’s keynote but also when we first received our test device. Yes, it is still a huge tablet, but it is slimmer and lighter than its predecessors. The new Apple Pencil feels great in the...

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) review: iOS with laptop power

 

New design ; Face ID ; Storage options ; New Pencil ; Lots of power

No HDR support ; No file directory support ; Your Lightning accessories won't work ; Can get expensive

Apple might have just relaunched the MacBook Air, but from our experience, this could just very well be your next laptop replacement.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) review

 

Update: iPads have traditionally run on the same iOS as iPhones, but Apple has announced that it is making its own offshoot operating system, called iPadOS . This new operating system helps turn iPads from large iPhones into impressive mac-esque work...

Massive display Unrivalled music quality (for a tablet) Snappy iOS 12

Limited battery life Face ID has short range No headphone port or connector

The new iPad Pro 12.9 might have a few weak features, but overall it’s an incredible device – between its massive screen, fantastic audio quality, slim design, useful peripherals, and iOS, you can’t get a better tablet.
