Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) review


Apple's latest iPad Pro is the pinnacle of portable cinema

Stunning picture quality ; Great sound with headphones ; Hugely powerful

Expensive for a tablet

It might be aimed primarily at creative types, but the new iPad Pro 12.9 is also the best tablet there’s ever been if portable cinema is your thing

iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) review


The iPad Pro 2021 is the biggest upgrade to the company's premium tablet since it debuted over six years ago.

Phenomenal power Fantastic display Strong battery life

An almighty price 128GB storage feels limited Lackluster color options

The new iPad Pro 12.9-inch for 2021 is the best tablet money can buy, with top-end power, a fantastic display, a whole host of new smaller upgrades and an all-round experience that makes it a must-have for both Apple fans and those who want an...

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021) review: the best tablet screen in the world


The iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021) offers incredible video performance and ridiculous power

Stunning mini-LED HDR display ; Extremely fast and powerful ; 5G now available ; Has the best tablet app ecosystem

No change in typical brightness ; iPadOS can be limiting ; Face ID is awkward at times

The iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021) is just Apple showing off. The mini-LED screen is beautiful, and it's stunningly fast… it's the peak of tablets currently, no question. But it's also more than most people will need.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021) review: Can it finally replace the laptop?


We've been testing the new M1-powered iPad Pro to see if it can finally replace your laptop.

Mini LED screen is better and brighter ; Ease of use ; Camera improvements ; 5G connectivity

Center Stage (camera tracking) can be hit and miss ; Software feels like it's holding it back

This iPad continues the Pro's transition to laptop - and is the closest replacement experience to date. The hardware is now there, the only holdback is the software situation.

M1 Apple iPad Pro (2021) review: A display of brilliance


The iPad Pro 12.9 is more of a laptop alternative than ever and it comes with a truly a stupendous display

Brilliant Mini-LED display ; M1 chip is very powerful ; Battery life still great

Expensive once you add a keyboard ; iOS still has its frustrations

Putting that aside for one moment, however, it’s quite clear that the iPad Pro 12.9in is a fabulous piece of hardware and categorically the best tablet you can buy. It’s as powerful as the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, it has great battery life for a...

iPad Pro M1 (2021) vs iPad Pro (2020)


It's what's on the inside that counts with the new iPad Pro for 2021: an M1 processor, Liquid Retina XDR display, 5G, Thunderbolt and more. Here's how it compares to its predecessor.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021) review: More than you need, exactly what you want


Apple's iPad Pro was already considered the best tablet you could get -- but in 2021, it gets even better thanks to the M1 chip and Mini LED display.

Incredible performance ; Beautiful display on 12.9-inch model ; Stunning design ; Center Stage works great ; USB 4/Thunderbolt 3 port

Nearly MacBook priced ; No Mini-LED on 11-inch model

“The iPad Pro takes the previous-generation iPad, and gives it meaningful updates that will make what was already the best tablet even better.”

iPad Pro 2021 (12.9-inch) review


The iPad Pro 2021 (12.9-inch) is the most advanced tablet ever although the new upgrades aren't always noticeable

XDR display can get bright and vivid ; M1 chip is outrageously fast ; Slim, durable chassis ; Thunderbolt 3 and USB4 support ; Improved front-facing camera with Center Stage ; 5G wireless speeds

Display has some limitations ; iPadOS can feel restricting ; Expensive

Apple's iPad Pro 2021 brings display, processor and connectivity upgrades to what was already the world's best (and most expensive) tablet.

iPad Pro 2021 (12.9-inch) review


The iPad Pro 2021 (12.9-inch) is the best and brightest iPad ever.

XDR display gets super bright ; M1 processor sets new iPadOS records ; Center Stage is pretty cool ; Thunderbolt 3 and USB 4 support ; 5G, finally

Display is best on HDR content ; Expensive with accessories

— and catch themselves waiting for it to export video faster — should upgrade. It's without a doubt the best tablet there is — especially if you can see the difference between HDR and 4K HDR. I bet, though, that they'd love for iPadOS to mature a bit...

Apple iPad Pro (2021) Review


The 2021 iPad Pro upgrades a tablet that already beat its competition.

Liquid Display XDR is superb ; Class-leading performance ; Useful, high-quality accessories

11-inch model lacks display upgrade ; Accessories greatly increase price ; IPadOS is in an awkward phase
