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...

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

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

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 review (M4, 7th gen): super powered, super bright


The iPad Pro gets a complete power up while being thinner - is it the most extreme tablet ever?

M4 is remarkably powerful ; Pencil Pro is terrific ; OLED display is excellent ; Weight loss a bonus

An expensive purchase ; Magic Keyboard is costly ; Should it be thicker but with longer battery life?

Absolutely remarkable enhancements that take the power of the iPad lineup to the next level – will there be a root-and-branch review of iPadOS soon to match?

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...

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...
