Apple iPad Pro review: Is this a laptop replacement?

There, the new iPad Pro is between 30 to 50 percent faster, showing how far Apple's new chipset has come compared with the previous generations. The difference in real estate is indiscernible, however, so the 10.5-inch iPad Pro still feels like the flawless size for me. The bigger screen will help this. "The 10.5" iPad Pro is the ideal compromise between the iPad Mini being a bit too small and too close to the Plus-sized iPhones and the slight bump in screen size makes it feel like you're getting a lot of the benefits of the larger pro without the extra size and weight. The bezel is slimmer but the display is still a long way from being edge to edge, and the functionality improvements are something you appreciate with time. The 10.5-inch version is also available in Rose Gold. It looks an terrible lot more appealing than the regular iPad, launched earlier this year.

However, Apple plans to address one of these issues. They add to the iPad Pro range which was first unveiled in 2015.

Other specifications on this new Apple tablet include 10.5 inch display that features a resolution of a resolution of 2,224 x 1,668 pixels and a choice of 64GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage. Cleverly, iOS switches between the wider DCI-P3 and standard sRGB gamuts automatically, so colours won't appear under- or oversaturated.

These are all small things - if you didn't know that the iPad Pro had a more responsive screen, you may not pick up on it yourself.


If you're used to the iPad Pro, you'll already be familiar with True Tone and this coterie of extras. Brighter than ever - and noticeably so, it also has a much higher refresh rate.

According to a report published by Game Debate, Apple's iMac Pro will be the first to debut the AMD Radeon Vega graphics card. Apple Pencil is available for $99 (US). This saves on battery life.

Rows of iPads were set up to show off ARkit, a set of tools coming with iOS 11 in September that will enable App developers to create incredible augmented reality experiences.

I don't consider myself a power user by any means.


The most important update is for the 12-inch MacBook.

Tough one. The Pro is so much more expensive than the basic iPad. Not that the old tablet was a slowpoke.

Apple has also updated the cameras on the device and the new tablet features a 12 megapixel camera on the back and a 7 megapixel camera on the front. If you're exporting 4K video or cranking up the screen brightness, you'll probably see the battery drain more quickly. Couple it with a few editing tools and the new iPad Pro could make a convincing all-in-one film studio.

As Apple tries to bolster a flagging tablet market, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro has replaced the iPad Pro 9.7-inch variant, offering a larger display, a 12MP rear snapper with optical image stabilization, ProMotion display technology with refresh rates of up to 120Hz, among others.
