iPad Pro

 

The iPad Pro just got a little brother, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, which will rightly become the iPad Pro of choice for many. The new iPad Pro was unveiled alongside the 4-inch iPhone SE on 21 March and could be Apple's best tablet to date.

iPad Pro 12.9 review: a bigger version of Apple's top tablet

 

Mega-powerful, superb speakers, loads of screen to play with - but is it TOO big?

Great screen ; Loads of power ; Brilliant speakers

Weighty ; iOS 9 not a Windows 10 rival

Apple iPad Pro (12.9in) review

 

Laptop or supersized iPad? Either way, the Pro is another superb Apple tablet...

Sharp screen ; Balanced colours ; Solid audio performance ; Fast processor

Size is a consideration ; Pricey ; Needs more native apps

iPad Pro review: by far the best tablet Apple's ever made

 

The iPad Pro is a whole new device for Apple. It's not just a larger iPad, nor is it a rival to the Surface Pro 4. It's a new range for Apple, but just bears a lot of similarities to what's come before.

Great screen ; Loads of power ; Brilliant speakers

Weighty ; iOS 9 not a Windows 10 rival

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 review: Back to the drawing board?

 

In terms of never needing to touch a computer again, we are almost there. Power users will disagree, but for the majority the iPad Pro will delivery

Massive screen with high resolution looks great ; Apple Pencil accessory works really well ; Best iPad performance to date ; Smart Connector wireless accessory connections

Apple iPad Pro review: Back to the drawing board?

 

It's Apple's biggest tablet ever. But does that mean the iPad Pro can replace both your laptop and tablet to become the sole computing device in your home?

Massive screen with high resolution looks great, Apple Pencil accessory works really well, best iPad performance to date, Smart Connector wireless accessory connections

Weights same as a laptop with optional keyboard added, not as portable as other iPads, keyboard accessory doesn't truly turn it into a laptop, iOS not OS X will divide "pro" opinion

As an laptop replacement for around the house, the iPad Pro fits the bill. It is fast, quick, and easy to use. Whether working on the sofa (if there's a coffee table), watching Netflix or Sky Go in bed, or sitting at a desk working on annotations with...

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 review

 

Apple's tablet colossus is upon us

So much crisp display ; Improved immersive sound experience ; Super long battery life

Not 3D Touch-enabled ; Accessories not included ; Supersized price tag

iPad Pro 12.9 (2015) review

 

The iPad Pro 12.9 takes Apple's tablet strategy in a new direction

Expansive, usable screen ; Hugely powerful ; Great speakers

Powerfully huge ; Battery life could be longer

A brilliant iPad that takes the devices into a new realm. We've loved using it, but just make sure you're ready for the larger size and weight.
