iPad Pro

 

The iPad Pro is Apple's biggest, fastest and most expensive iPad ever. It's very good, but not a total replacement for your laptop.

Slim and incredibly light ; Awesome screen and speakers ; Excellent performance ; Good on-the-go typing experience

Not as portable as other iPads ; Most will still need a proper computer ; No iOS optimisations for the big screen

The iPad Pro has a large, 10,307mAh battery that Apple claims will last for 10 hours. That’s the same figure quoted for the iPad Air 2 – and, based on my testing, is pretty much on the money.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2017 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Apple's latest iPad is a large 12.9-inch model, replacing the previous model from 2015. The improvements on the box add up to a faster processor, and in theory, a brighter screen. Otherwise though, little has changed. Does the additional speed and...

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The iPad Pro 12.9 - Apple's largest tablet to date - aims to satisfy customer demand for bigger-screen devices. And with the titular 12.9-inch display also comes the ability to split the screen for multitasking and a faster processor. Read on to see...

Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2017) review: More pricey, but practically perfect

 

The best tablet you can buy, with a better screen, faster internals and now iOS 11 – a stunning piece of hardware

The original Apple iPad Pro was a stunning machine and despite the relatively minor upgrade, the 2017 model is simply incredible. It’s faster, feel more fluid in use than before and remains every bit as good as the original.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) vs Surface Pro 5: Which is the best laptop replacement?

 

We weigh up the specs, design, features and price of the iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) and Surface Pro 5 (2017), to help you decide which is the best laptop-replacement tablet on the market right now

They're widely marketed as pretenders to the same throne - the laptop-replacement tablet of choice for business and creative users - but the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 5 are quite different in a lot of ways.

iPad Pro 12.9in (2017) vs iPad Pro 12.9in (2015)

 

We compare the 2015 and 2017 models of the iPad Pro 12.9in, to help you decide if it's worth upgrading

It's been almost two years since the iPad Pro first came into our lives, so it's just about possible that early adopters' bank accounts have recovered sufficiently to start considering an upgrade. And this is a pretty decent (if unexciting) upgrade to...

iPad Pro 12.9in (2017) preview

 

We take a first look at the iPad Pro 12.9in (2017), announced at WWDC. Is it a convincing laptop replacement, and is it worth updating from the 2015 model?

The iPad Pro 12.9in (2017) is monstrously expensive by the standards of entertainment-focused consumer tablets; it's lucky, then, that Apple is marketing it at business and creative users as a laptop replacement. And while it remains to be seen whether...

iPad Pro 12.9in (2017) vs MacBook Air comparison review

 

The second-generation iPad Pro 12.9in has finally made its appearance, and it's not cheap either. With prices starting at £769, the iPad Pro costs a similar amount to Apple's MacBook Air – which begs the question, can an iPad Pro replace a Mac? We...

Reverting back to the original question of whether an iPad Pro could truly replace your Mac – it’s a hard question to answer, and we think it depends on a number of factors, from what you’d use the iPad Pro for, to your requirements for work. Are you a...

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 best tablet you can buy right now

 

It should be good for watching video, playing games, and reading. It should be thin, light, and have a battery that lasts.

Smaller footprint ; Lightweight ; Touch ID

Fewer accessories ; Seems to get less support than full-size iPads ; Fewer multitasking options

You can probably guess
