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.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) review


This is Apple's super-sized tablet for multi-tasking

Expansive, bright 12.9-inch screen ; iOS 12 has tablet-focused perks ; Tests prove its laptop-beating power

Expensive at any level ; Dimensions make it cumbersome ; iOS 12 still has limitations

The iPad Pro 12.9 is the tablet equivalent of a gaming laptop. It’s incredibly powerful, undeniably fast, and a visual treat every time you turn on the noticeably improved screen. iOS 12 gives it a few new multi-tasking powers. It’s big to carry around...

Review: iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) with iOS 11


Apple's mobile OS includes some sweet creative enhancements for the iPad Pro.

Wonderful creative tool ; New dock works really well ; Files app is welcome ; Ace Apple Pencil enhancements

If you think it's huge, maybe you need the 10.5-inch instead ; Can't replace full functionality of desktop apps

iOS adds some genuinely useful features to the iPad Pro 12.9, especially around Apple Pencil. And the dock is superbly implemented.

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.

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...

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...
