    The iPad Update I'd been waiting for

    After many half based negligible updates to the iPad line up, finally this got me excited. I managed to get hold of the iPad 10.5" on release day in Best Buy. So there are a few points which I notice really sets this apart from my previous iPad Air 9.7". That small different of slightly less than an inch makes a huge difference to viewing the device. In fact, I've used it on a few plane journeys since having it, and fellow passengers in seats across the aisle commented on it, asking if it was an iPad, as they noticed it was bigger. This is a huge gain and although bezel-less would be best, is nicer to use. The screen is brighter and feels more vibrant and colour pops even more than previous generations. The performance of the device is snappy and smooth, and obviously we're still officially on iOS 10. The launch of iOS 11 will probably bring the device to life even more. So this is a nice replacement and addition to my Apple line up. Other things I noticed, some obvious, some not. That small difference to the screen size makes typing on the on-screen keyboard much easier with folks with big hands like me. The different is tiny but helps. From a more geeky perspective, the LTE chips in the iPad support faster LTE, and while they do not support the upcoming LTE-LAA (T-Mobile currently rolling out), they do support LTE-A Cat 11. What does this mean? Well it means if you have a fast enough network, you can get data around 600m/bit. A few networks in Europe are offering this at present. I bought an Apple Pencil, just for S&Gs actually and I've found it quite useful for annotating and marking up designs for work. So all in all very happy. If I need to mention a couple of small downsides, one would be that I'd really like an extra row of icons on each page as there is room and it would be useful. Secondly, I'm not sure exactly on this, but the battery seems to run down a bit quicker when watching heavily compressed video. This may be the GPU rendering H265 and needing to use more power. In layman's terms, this means if you've downloaded a load of Netflix stuff or even Vudu, expect the battery to run down a little quicker. You still get a very long time and I've not had it down to 10 hours, but a long day of flying with a lot of watching got me down to around 30%. I recommend this to business users especially as the extra power and screen really help when running CRM apps and so on. Artists may benefit from the Apple Pencil as well.

    Best iPad that I have owned and use it daily. I debated between 2 in 1 laptop and iPad Pro. The main reasons I select iPad Pro was the new 10.5 inch screen, compatibility with Microsoft office app, Apple app store and unlimited data plan option. It is lightweight and carry it with me all the time. WIFI + CELLULAR * Use for online college classes * Can access online college books, assignments and my paper using the cloud drive and continue where I left off on home desktop * Use iPad more than my phone for social media, emails, web, music SCREEN: * Amazing display colors and sharpenss * Happy medium 10.5 screen size & lightweight * Great size for split screen & note taking/drawing with Apple pencil * Great size for movies & photos PRODUCTIVITY * More productive in college and work * Works best for me to include the Apple keyboard and pencil * Also use for fun like movies, photo, books, youtube, music, games I have used this iPad Pro 10.5 everyday since I bought it. It was worth the price because it helped me be more productive. Bought with my Best Buy card and selected 18 months no interest option. Overall, I am very happy with iPadPro 10.5 tablet :)

    Best iPad Yet

    I bought the 10.5" iPad Pro before a trip to Europe to replace my well-functioning 9.7" iPad Pro, which I gave to my son. It has a wonderful screen, is responsive, and (if unlocked, as mine is) permits instant switching of sim cards so one can use either one's home account (AT&T in my case) or use data from a different country's sim card, thus saving the international charges one might otherwise encounter. As is the case with all iPads these days, syncing data and account information when upgrading from one iPad to another was quick, painless, and virtually seamless, so long as you use iCloud to backup your device. I definitely would recommend to a friend. However, if it was not for the fact that my son needed an iPad, I would not have purchased this new version; the differences between it and the 9.7" iPad Pro are not noticeable enough to warrant spending the money on the upgrade.

    What a fantastic upgrade

    Honestly, I'm not an Apple shill, or a defender. When the company does something bad, I point it out. When criticism is warranted, I offer it. The new iPad Pro 10.5 is an absolutely fantastic evolution of the iPad. The slimmed down bezels and additional screen real estate is very welcomed for anyone who has been used to the traditional 9.7 form factor. The 120Hz display is by far the biggest improvement, and something you will have to see in person to appreciate, as videos can not show it. Performance is rivaling some Macbook Pro models from a year or two ago, and that is not an exaggeration, that is what the benchmarks show to be true. iOS 11 when it comes out will become a game changer in multi-tasking on the iPad. The speakers are even louder and have better sound reproduction than the 9.7 iPad Pro. Get this iPad. It's worth it.

    As a visually impaired senior, the iPad has long been my lifeline to the written word due to Apple's attention to accessibility that few other companies can match, or seemingly even try to. The Pro continues and enhances the link between tge written word (from email to texts to magazines, newspapers, news sources, financial information and books.). In fact Best Buy might take lessons since the font for this review is about six point and regretfully it cannot be increased so please overlook spelling and grammar errors as I can't detect them. Now if outside venders would take accessibility lessons from Apple, the link for visually impaired consumers would be even better. Are you listening Best abuy? Fidelity? Others who don't yet accommodate the accessibility features tear tge iapad offers?

    Best iPad yet, Smart Keyboard makes it more useful

    This updated Pro line is the best set of iPads yet. I've had many previous versions of the iPad before and while I thought they were all very good at watching videos and playing games. But the on screen keyboard made it tough to get any real work or typing done. Typing emails and longer messages was a bit of a chore. The ability to use a keyboard fixes my biggest issue with the iPad. The larger screen makes it nicer to use than the older 9.7s but not quite as bulky as the 12.9. This is a great in between size. The ProMotion display is very smooth and slick, a noticeable improvement over older displays. The processor and graphics chip on this iPad is very powerful and everything runs extremely smooth. Only downside is that it is expensive so if all you want to do is watch videos and play games then get the non-Pro iPad. That does 95% of what this one can do for half the price.

    Game Changer for iPad

    I've owned multiple iPads before, from the standard 12.9" to the iPad Mini and each time I would think that it's a great productivity tool, but they would end up just collecting dust. They really didn't do much more than what my iPhone did. When I bought this, I bought it with the pen and the keyboard case. In conjunction with these and with the new screen, I use this thing ALL the time now! From writing notes to doing significant work on the go (I do work on it while I'm commuting), it's extremely convenient and comes very close to what my full blown MacBook Pro can do. I highly recommend getting the pencil and the keyboard with it. You'll pretty much have an all-in-one device. With iOS 11, it will get even better and I can't wait. Finally, the iPad makes complete sense now and is a powerhouse productivity tool.

    A Great Replacement to an Aging iPad Air

    My iPad Air was going on 3 years and wasn't quite as snappy these days so I was thrilled to hear the 10.5" was announced. The screen isn't much larger on paper, but is is dramatic when you hold it in your hand. However, comparing it with my old iPad it's very hard to tell that it is just a bit bigger than my previous model and the same weight overall. This thing packs some big horsepower which is handy for multitasking. I added on the Apple Keyboard and Pencil which has been a good investment on both accounts. Couldn't be happier!
