iPad Pro 12.9 review


Apple's biggest tablet takes the iPad in a new direction

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

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 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...

iPad Pro vs Surface Pro 3 vs Surface Pro 4


Microsoft clearly got it right with the Surface Pro as the iPad Pro not only sounds like it, but looks like it too. But which tablet is the best? We compare the new iPad with the Surface Pro 3 and 4 and spot the differences to help you choose.

When we reviewed the Surface Pro 3 we concluded that it was the best yet. It's the most portable of laptops and an acceptable tablet. Nothing has changed with the update to Windows 10. The Surface Pro 4 is an evolution and, apart from the higher screen...

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

The supercharged iPad Pro is for serious creatives with seriously deep pockets

iPad Pro vs iPad Air 2 comparison: What's the difference?


Find out what the iPad Pro brings to the table to help you decide whether it's worth buying or whether you should buy the iPad Air

We can't offer a full verdict on which iPad is better until we've spent more time with the iPad Pro, but we think that the more powerful tablet is going to appeal to a reasonably small number of people who are willing to pay the extra for the...

Apple iPad Pro Review: In Depth


iPad Pro review: We review the biggest iPad to date, the mighty 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but is it also the best?

Spacious, sharp screen ; Impressive power ; Well-designed accessories ; All-day battery

Pricey ; Accessories come separate ; Niche

The iPad Pro is the natural choice if you want a tablet that can handle intensive office tasks and creative suites on the go, thanks to its spacious screen, impressive performance, precision control and all-day battery life. However, it's also very...

iPad Pro 12.9in review


We review the iPad Pro 12.9in, Apple's giant, big-screen iPad, and find it impressive - and confusing. The specs are stunning, the processing power superb, and the build quality excellent. But the price tag is high, and we're left to wonder who exactly...

Extreme processing power ; Big screen ; Audio power and rebalancing

Costly (especially with price hike) ; Range of pro-level creative apps for iOS remains limited

We're impressed by the iPad Pro's processing muscle, its screen technology and the design skills that have squeezed such a big display into such a slim and lightweight package, but there remain many questions - such as the audience to whom Apple is...

iPad Pro: The most powerful tablet ever


The largest, fastest and most expensive tablet from Apple so far – but can the iPad Pro beat the Surface Pro 4 at its own game?
