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...

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

iPad Pro review: Why the best iPad yet won't work for everyone

 

The iPad Pro won't replace my iPhone or my Mac, but it provides a mostly great experience, thanks in large part to the Pencil.

Excellent battery life ; Plenty of speed and power

Software keyboard bug

If price is no object, the iPad Pro plus the Apple Pencil let you do more with Apple's tablet than ever before.

iPad Pro review: It's not a full PC replacement, but it's a really nice iPad

 

When I first picked up the iPad Pro at an Apple event this past September, I couldn't help but laugh a little bit. For one, its size: it is holy-crap-look-at-this-iPad big. And with a price tag...

Large, beautiful display ; Powerful processor ; Precise stylus ; Split-screen multitasking

It’s expensive ; It’s really big ; Overpriced accessory keyboard ; Not quite a PC replacement

Smart Keyboard needs a touchpad; Lengthy recharge time ; The 12.9-inch iPad Pro boasts the best screen and performance we've ever seen in a tablet, but we'd suggest waiting for the final version of iOS 11 to arrive before you splurge.

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...

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...

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...

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 Review

 

Now it's time for the biggest iPad around to get a much appreciated upgrade, as Apple re-works the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with an updated screen, new processor, more powerful camera, and more...

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
