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.

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...

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...

Apple iPad Pro Review: A superb tablet waiting for its time to shine


The problem with reviewing Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro shortly after launch is that the tablet is already at a disadvantage. Apple has already shown us iOS 11, with specific features designed to change how we use the iPad, the release of which is still...

A display that lives up to Apple's hype ; Excellent battery life ; A logical compromise between screen size and portability

It's available now, without iOS 11

There's something you should know about 12.9-inch iPad Pro [seventh in a series]


April 3, 2016 marks the first day that I truly could use Apple's over-sized tablet to replace my laptop. But I had to spend another $84, before California tax, to do it. Gadget reviewers who say that iPad Pro cannot be your computer are wrong. The...
