iPad Pro 10.5 review

 

Is bigger always better?

Amazing audio ; Smooth and crisp screen ; Insanely powerful

High price ; Keyboard is necessary but extra ; Still not quite a laptop replacement

This is only a final review in that you can buy the 10.5-inch iPad Pro in the form described here – but we need iOS 11 to land before we can truly work out if this is a great tablet. It offers great audio and video playback... but we need to assess the...

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Tablet Review

 

A great tablet, but not a pro. The iPad Pro 10.5 is Apple's second generation of the Pro-series. The screen is definitely the star of the show. It has not only grown in size, but it also offers 120 Hz, HDR and claims coverage of the P3 color space. The...

very good display ; fast Wi-Fi ; additional Apple SIM (LTE-versions only) ; speedy SoC ; decent speakers ; good battery runtimes

no support for Galileo GNSS ; pressure-sensitive case ; one-year warranty only ; display does not support P3 despite claims ; slower memory than predecessor ; long charging times

Apple has decided not to give the iPad Pro 10.5 a full makeover and instead made real improvements where it matters most. Particularly the new display is impressive - its great reflective properties and HDR capabilities will be particularly interesting...

iPad Pro 10.5

 

iPad Pro 2 10.5 review, price, release date and features: Apple gets closer than ever to offering a true laptop alternative, with an amazing screen

Amazing display ; Extremely powerful ; Promise of iOS 11 ; Works brilliantly with Pencil

Big price jump from previous iPad Pro models ; Expensive peripherals ; No fast charger in the box

Look past the price and this is a stunning tablet that needs iOS 11 to really feel complete.

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

Apple iPad Pro 10.5in review

 

Performance and productivity combine in the best tablet money can buy...

Powerful sound from the speakers ; Impressive display ; Unparalleled performance ; High-quality cameras

Not the most affordable tablet on the planet ; Overkill as a pure multimedia machine

Pricey, but the latest Pro cements Apple’s position at the top of the premium tablet market, with performance and software future-proofing that should keep it there for a long time yet

Apple iPad Pro (10.5-Inch)

 

Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro tablet packs as much power as a laptop, but using iOS for pro-level applications will take some getting used to for many professionals.

Extremely fast. Light. Excellent screen and cameras. Better battery life than previous iPads.

Expensive. Using iOS for pro-level applications requires a shift in thinking. Screen technologies may be too advanced to perceive.

The current non-Pro iPad, starting at $329 for 32GB, is all the slate you need for traditional tablet use, which includes games, magazines, comics, and basic email, writing, and web browsing. The iPad Pro starts at twice the price ($649 for 64GB), and...

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 (2017) review

 

Tablets just don't get better than this - the latest iPad is phenomenal

Fantastic display that’s perfect for productivity ; Performance that beats full-size laptops ; Superb battery life

Pricey - For most people it’s either this or a laptop ; The best is still yet to come with iOS 11

The iPad Pro puts all other tablets to shame. It’s unbeatable as a multimedia machine or creative tool, and will only get better once iOS 11 shows up

Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch review

 

Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the best tablet in the world, period.

Excellent display, with high refresh rate ; Buttery-smooth performance ; Long battery life ; Robust tablet-support apps ; Great camera, speakers

Pricey ; No fast charging

Apple’s latest iPad Pro is the best tablet you can buy. It excels in nearly every category, remains a fantastic tool for artists, and continues to define the tablet market.

Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro review: iPad Pro 2 is the laptop replacement we’ve been hoping for

 

Slick, lightweight and incredibly powerful, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the perfect ultraportable

Great performance ; Ultra lightweight ; Apple Pencil and keyboard cover work well

Expensive ; Still an iOS device

The new problem for Apple, however, will be convincing consumers to pay proper laptop prices for its new tablet. With prices starting at £619 for the 64GB alone, £159 extra for the keyboard and £99 for the Apple pencil it’s going to be a tough old sell.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 review: Where execution and ambition meet

 

iPad Pros have always been great options for people who need high-powered tablets, and the new 10.5-inch model is no exception. It's a more exciting update than it might initially seem: The screen is bigger and brighter than before, and the new A10X...

Incredibly powerful for an iPad ; Bigger, better screen ; Sleek (if familiar) design ; Great cameras

iOS 11 isn’t out yet ; Expensive ; Shorter battery life than some competing tablets

No matter how you slice it, $649 is a lot of money to drop on an iPad. In return, however, you get one of the most powerful tablets around. Most people like the idea of a second screen for occasional web browsing on the couch when they can't be...
