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...

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.

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.

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...

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

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.

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...

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...

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...
