    Love the new iPad

    I’m going to try and give an honest review for the iPad Pro 10.5 256GB. First let me say that I was coming from a iPad mini 2 (Retina Display) so the bar was set pretty low. Now, I am in the IT industry so i have a fairly good idea of when performance is limited by software, hardware or external factors like internet issues. The reasons I wanted to get something new are as follows. 1) The iPad Mini 2 was really starting to show signs of age and running really slow. 2) Ever since Microsoft put out some security updates, Google SketchUp stopped working for me. 3) My laptop was not able to keep up with my Video editing demands, even though they may be minor. My PC Specs: 3rd Gen i5, 12GB of RAM, 256SSD hard drive, 17.3” screen. I looked at chrome books, smaller laptops with i7 CPUs and with dedicated video cards, and iPads. My Requirements were as follows: 1) Able to use some sort of 3D design software. 2) Able to use decent Video Editing Software. 3) Easy to move around and work off the couch or in the car. 4) Compact, light, good battery life and easy to move around. 5) Keyboard that is detachable or foldable for strict use as a tablet. 6) SSD Hard Drive 7) FAST!!!! I finally decided the iPad was the way to go and it had to be the iPad Pro. My first impressions were, ok, it’s another iPad and everything is fast on it but what can it really do? The more I used it, the more i realized that it can do. Webpages loaded fast and looked very clean. I was able to fit more on the screen without scrolling around. I found it to be highly compatible with most websites. Meaning, they actually function! The old iPad Mini 2 was very slow at browsing and things could take a long time. On the IPad Pro, web browsing seems faster than my PC. It look me a few minutes to get used to the multitasking and screen splitting capabilities but it works really well. I can finally have two things on the screen so I can copy and past or enter key info from an email to a website. I ended up using Shapr3D for design. It works extremely well and is fast and smooth. For video editing I use LumaFusion. I used an SD card reader to import about 32 GB of video files. It only took what seemed like 2 minutes. It was much faster than when i imported to my PC. Using the video editing software was also very smooth and quick. Everything i did in it was fast. Even when it came down to exporting the video. This is something that could take 30 to 40 minutes on my PC and the iPad did it in like 3 minutes. Overall i could not be happier. I did get the Logitech keyboard, Apple Pencil and Zag Screen protector with the iPad. The Pencil and Keyboard are awesome. The Zag screen protector, ehh... Its very clear but seems to show a lot of glar and finger prints.

    My first iPad was my iPad 2. For obvious cost reasons, I don't update my iPads as frequently as I do my other Apple devices. So after my iPad 2, I went to an iPad Air 1. It lasted well, but iOS 11 really slowed down the Air. I wouldn't be surprised if iOS 12 is the last version for the Airs. So when Best Buy had a pre-black Friday sales on iPads, I went looking. I found an open box, never used iPad Pro 10 with 256GB storage for $630. Since they retail for $799, that's a helluva deal! I was really surprised by how quickly this thing moves. I read that the iPad Pro 10's have 4GBs of RAM in them, up from the 2GB that the Pro 9.7's had. I'm guessing that my Air probably had 1GB or 512MB of RAM. This thing is like a speed demon. Animations are fluid and beautiful. The screen is just a bit larger than my old iPad, but it's still not gargantuan like the Pro 12. The refresh rate has been bumped up to 120MHz, so the video and animation is lifelike and rendered bright and beautifully on the 600 nits screen. If you're comparing the specs and features of the new iPads versus the Pros, you owe it to yourself to check out the Pros. Sure, they're more expensive, but the specs are much better and you also have the option of using the Apple Pencil. I haven't picked up the Pencil yet, but I have a feeling it's only a matter of time before I do. The Pros have enough hardware in them to essentially make them more future-proof than the Airs / regular iPads nowadays. Gaming is quick and clean with no frame rate issues. Here's a rundown of the Pro 10 specs that I think matter most: * 2.38 GHz Ax10 Fusion Chip (6 Cores) / M10 Motion Coprocessor * 12 Core GPU * 4GB RAM * 10.5 inch screen, thinner bezel on sides * 2224 x 1668 resolution, 264ppi, * 120MHz refresh rate with 600 nits brightness * Storage Tiers - 64GB, 256GB, 512GB

    Better value then the iPad Air 3!

    I know I am suggesting purchasing a nearly 2 year old iPad (at the time of this review) but believe it or not it beats out the new iPad Air 3 where bang for your buck is concerned. For example it features a 120Hz "ProMotion" display which adapts to the content you are viewing and helps minimize lag when using the Apple Pencil vs the Air's 60Hz display. The Pro has 4 GB of RAM vs the Air's 3 GB RAM. If you watch content on your iPad such as movies or TV you should know the Pro has 2 speakers on either sides of the iPad in landscape vs. the Air's stereo speaker pair on the lower half (in Portrait mode). Where the new Air 3 sort of beats the older Pro is with it's upgraded CPU. The new Air uses the A12 "Bionic" chip while the Pro uses an older A10X "Fusion" chip. The A10X however features a built in GPU (great for gaming) which the A12 currently doesn't feature (the A12X is featured on the much more expensive 11 inch and 12.9 inch iPad Pros w/ Face ID). in everyday real-world use you will likely be hard-pressed to tell a difference in overall performance. Both iPads currently are going for roughly the same price as stores are trying to sell off their remaining inventory of the older iPad Pros. I got the older 10.5 inch pro and do not regret my decision. If you want the most value for your hard earned money, you are better off getting the iPad Pro 10.5 vs. the iPad Air 3 as the Air 3 is merely a stripped down "Pro 10.5" with only 1 real "upgrade", and even the so-called "upgrade" isn't worth giving up the features you end up losing by getting the Air 3.

    I never write reviews but always read many so thought I would finally contribute. I upgraded from iPad Air 16 GB (first version—2013) to iPad Pro 10.5 256 GB. What an upgrade and much needed one at that! Received an in-store credit for iPad Air trade-in and got the iPad on sale, too. Like the 10.5 size—little bigger than the 9.7 but not too big to carry around. Contemplated just getting latest version of 9.7 iPad but there are so many advantages to getting iPad Pro that I felt like extra money was worth the investment. Improved features from iPad Air: 1) Picture quality; 2) Faster responsiveness of touch (compared to my old iPad that was starting to have problems); 3) More memory; 4) Fingerprint identification to unlock; 5) More speakers/improved sound quality. While memory capacity is not an issue if you use cloud or third-party storage (I.e. Dropbox), it will be nice to have this, given the video quality capability is improved on this. I have not bought an Apple Pencil yet—will see if I can do without. I mainly use iPad for email, surfing web/social media, referencing documents in meetings and lecture notes for class. All in all, after all my research, I decided to upgrade to iPad Pro 10.5 instead of just 9.7 newest iPad. A little more money goes a long way in getting extra features. If you’re contemplating between 9.7 version and iPad Pro, go with the iPad Pro. Finally, I always pair my iPad with a Zagg keyboard folio case and Zagg shield. Makes iPad so much more functional and easy to use. Good luck on your research! Happy shopping!

    iPad Pro 10.5, 64GB beats 6th Gen iPad 9.7, 128GB

    If you can’t decide between the iPad 9.7 128GB and iPad Pro 10.5 64GB, consider the upgraded iPad 10.5 features listed below, which costs around $150 more than the iPad 9.7 128GB: Slightly larger, higher resolution, and laminated display. Tapping the iPad 9.7 screen sounds hollow, where tapping the 10.5 Pro screen sounds solid. ipad 9.7 screen looks like a mirror and you could almost use it to comb your hair, where the iPad 10.5 Pro display is not very reflective and easier to view in the sunlight. The 10.5 Pro has antireflective coating, Promotion technology, wide color display, true tone display, optical image stabilization. Higher resolution rear camera and a much higher resolution front camera. Rear camera flash on iPad 10.5 Pro vs no rear flash on iPad 9.7. Faster Processor, A10X Fusion vs A10 Fusion. 4GB RAM vs 2GB RAM. 4K HD Video vs 1080P. Faster Graphics. 4 Speaker Audio vs 2 Speaker Audio. Another worthwhile upgrade: the price difference between 64GB and 256GB on the iPad 10.5 Pro is around $125, definitely worth getting the 256GB model.

    I bought this because I wanted something that I could take notes with in class. I tried to replace traditional note-taking (in notebooks) with other tablets including the iPad Air but it never felt right and I always reverted back to using notebooks. The iPad Pro, however, works beautifully with the apple pen and feels really natural. I can take notes easily and comfortably (it no longer feels awkward as with other tablets). My favorite thing about it is that I can follow along with my professors on the PowerPoints and take notes directly on each PowerPoint - I recommend the app Liquid Text if you would like to do this. I also draw which makes this iPad even more useful and fun to use for me. My last iPad was the Air and it literally just sat and collected dust because I found zero use for it. Now Apple has made the iPad much more functional and practical for someone like me. I can organize all of my class notes and consolidate all of my textbooks with e-books on this device which of course you can do with other tablets but the fact that I am now able to actively take notes on it makes the act much more rewarding. Now my backpack is filled with weightlessness and don't have to walk all the way back to my car just to get a notebook or textbook so I can study at the library :) If you're in the market for an iPad right now then I highly recommend this one along with the Apple Pen.

    I bought the 10.5 size and I think this is the perfect size for my needs. I needed it to be portable, can't do that with a 12.9 since it is a large size tablet and cumbersome and the 9.7 is just too small. You can't read on the large size either (i.e. Hold it up for a long time without getting tired). The 10.5 has a comfortable feel if you want to read, it is light and it has a large enough screen for people like me who wear glasses, I am able to use it as a laptop. I use it for emails, online surfing/shopping since I really hate to shop so I save time this way. I will be taking this with me on travel. I have yet to play around with the bells & whistles this thing has. I bought the Microsoft office suite and glad I did. I just uploaded Spotify and I love it, first time I have used it. This is my first iPAD (I only have an iPod and iTouch and a couple of other tablets, they are slow compared to the iPad Pro, for sure). Almost got the iPad Air but I am glad I got this instead and I got the Wifi only, not the Wifi with cellular. I already have a phone so why do I need to pay for another plan. Yes it is pricey but I pulled the trigger on this anyway and glad I did. Worth it for sure and I am very happy with this product! Bought the Bose Soundsport wireless earbuds too and that's another 5-star review.

    Look Android Power user here. I have owned countless of Android tablets over the years, have only owned and still use Android phones. I simply love the openness of the Android OS. Be that as it may, I have been enthralled by the latest 10.5 iPad Pro for some time and finally decided to bite the bullet and made the purchase. I will give Apple this much: their device screams top notch in quality and the latest IOS 11.x update has come leaps and bounds to make the user experience that more fluid. Everything is responsive in terms of multitasking so far and apps open super fast. I would have wanted Apple to build a mini 5 with same processing power and memory as I think the mini is the perfect size for portability and reading but it does not seem this will happen. The display with its TrueTone display and refresh rate seem to make it future proof (at least 2 -3 years maybe). While I am still going to remain an Android purist, I feel Apple has built a pretty powerful device in the 10.5 Pro. I expect the device to become my daily driver for tablet use (reading, browsing the net, work-related task,...) as I ramp up my knowledge of the IOS platform. So far, so good Apple.

    Near-perfect hybrid

    I had been slightly nervous about what hybrid to get, I knew I wanted tablet/laptop to replace my now dead MacBook, but it was hard to choose. I’m SUPER glad I went with this. First of all, it’s great you can choose from different GB options, I found the 256 to be perfect for what I needed and not too over-priced. Attaching Bluetooth keyboards is also smooth in transition and quite helpful. The new iOS allowing Microsoft apps and advanced keyboard options also feels like a great step forward especially when I need it to behave as a desktop. Obviously it’s not going to completely replace your desktop or laptop, but with the amount of new apps arriving every year and Apple moving closer to behaving like Microsoft, I have good faith in what’s to come. The WiFi I’ve noticed is spotty, like most apple products, and logins requiring a pop up page to type a WiFi password rarely ever cooperate or show up, leaving me without access to WiFi (yes, I have pop up block disabled and settings adjusted as needed, too). So I hope that gets fixed. Also of course handling photo editing, music editing, and video editing, using both the keyboard and touch screen it is easier than ever. Also Apple Pencil is worth the tag, get it. I wasn’t expecting being this happy with this purchase, I just hope the desktop features keep coming and the WiFi access with login pages comes soon.

    I've owned every iPad except the very first generation and I mean every iPad except the first generation. iPad 2, 3, 4, Air, Air 2, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 4, Pro 12.9 1st gen, Pro 9.7 The New iPad, Pro 12.9 2nd gen, ok almost all of them lol, and now The Pro 10.5. When I say it's the best it truly is!!!! It's a power house, the speed is phenomenal, the touch screen is extra responsive, writing with the pen is so close to writing on paper it's ridiculous. I do all my music composing on it and now thanks to Affintiy Photo I do all of my photo editing on it too! From weddings, to family and senior portraits. I'm actually looking to get away from my MacBook Pro and just go full fledge iPad Pro!!!! The thing I love most about the 10.5 is that it's not as big as the 12.9 so it's easier to take everywhere but it's a little bit bigger than the 9.7 making the apps big enough to completely enjoy unlike some "buttons in apps" on the 9.7 were still a little small. The details are beautiful, the color rendition amazing, I can't praise the iPad enough this is the iPad I have long awaited for it's only gonna get better from here on folks I promise you that!!!! Love it Apple keep up the great work!!!!

    I sold my 2-in-1 Dell laptop after becoming far too frustrated with the quality and performance of it's hardware (particularly the touch screen and trackpad). I figured that I was taking a leap by switching to the iPad Pro, but to be honest, this thing is incredible. As of this writing, I've owned it for 7 months. No interface lag, apps run smoothly, there are near professional level apps for small projects and hobbies (photography, video editing, note taking, etc). The screen is gorgeous and I can't say that I miss the extra real estate that my laptop had, both in terms of screen size and the weight/bulk of the device. I fully expect this iPad to last me a number of years more than any laptop, which is exactly what I was looking for. I can't comment on the Pencil, but have tried other styli and haven't been impressed, so that may change! Final point: the battery lasts ages. As I write this (from my iPad), I am at 50% battery with 7hrs of usage plus 37hrs of standby since its last full charge (it hasn't been plugged in at all since hitting 100%). My laptop could never do that!

    I’ve had iPad Air for awhile. I decided to upgrade because my iPad Air sometimes froze and shut off suddenly. What I noticed right away is the screen is brighter and even though it wasn’t much bigger than the 9.7 iPad, this 10.5 screen actually looks so much bigger. And of course the improvement with the resolution and the camera is a very nice addition that I can count as necessary. I decided to go “big” by buying the very expensive Apple keyboard and the Apple Pencil. I have not used the pencil that much so I can’t say much about it except it’s very responsive. The keyboard on the other hand is a very useful addition to this very functional iPad. I have MacBook that I haven’t used in a while since I have iPad Air. This combo iPad Pro, keyboard and pencil might make that obsolete except for some heavier computer work. If you have the budget for it, don’t hesitate to get this iPad Pro and the expensive Apple “attachments”. They keyboard does not need to be charged separately, nor it needs a battery. It just works right away with the iPad Pro. No fuss, no muss.

    Worth the Upgrade from an Older iPad

    Purchased for my daughter to use in school (which has a personal device requirement; she must have a computer or tablet device to use a school). She had an older version of an iPad and this upgrade was well worth it for several reasons. The extra screen real estate from 9.7 to 10.5 inches was nice, even though the overall dimensions of the iPad is about the same. Touch ID is a great feature which makes logging in much simpler and quicker for her. The Pro allows for the use of the Apple Pencil, which she absolutely loves using. It also provides the option for an iPad-powered keyboard (as opposed to a bluetooth keyboard that must be charged separately). The true tone screen with 120 Hz refresh rate is nice, but either are features that my daughter would really notice or care about. Having more memory (256 GB) as opposed to her previous 128 GB is also something she is thrilled with because it gives her the ability to store additional textbooks and movies on the device. Given our family sharing with Apple IDs and our Apple Music subscription, going with anything but an iPad for her was really not an option. Long story short, she loves her iPad and we are hoping it winds up being a great option for her in school this year (as opposed to a Chromebook).

    I have been holding onto my aging iPad Air (yes, from 2013) until a worth upgrade came along. And this was definitely the right one. I couldn't jump on the 2 since I knew it would immediately replaced (the new iPad), and I knew the Pro's were going to be updated as well. It was a long wait but well worth it. I highly suggest the upgrade to anyone who has an IiPad Air or older generation. If you have an iPad Air 2, it may not feel as worth it. In summary, the bigger screen and slimmer bevel is subtle, but after using it for a few days now, I couldn't imagine it any other way. It looks so good! And the increased refresh rate of the screen. Man, 120 Hz is the way to go and makes everything look very nice. Colors are great and the size feels good too.

    I purchased this to replace my aging iPad Air. After upgrading it to iOS 11, it seemed a lot slower. The first thing I noticed was the missing mute switch. Apple decided to move the mute switch to the control center. I also purchased a Zagg keyboard folio case, which has a mute key there, so it wasn't that big of a deal. I was a little disappointed in the storage size. I was upgrading from 64GB, and wanted to move to 128GB. The iPad Pro isn't offered in that size, so I had to upgrade to 256GB. Now I have lots of space. I've had a few issues with iOS 11 (11.2.1). A game that I play seems to have issues. It could be an issue with the game, but be aware that you may need to kill an app if you are having problems with it. I haven't quite figured out the multi-tasking. That looks interesting, but I'm not sure if everything supports it. The stereo sound is a lot better than I expected, especially after putting a case on it. But the case might actually help. The case has openings in front instead of the sides, so the sound is coming at you instead of out the sides. In general, I'm happy with it. The physical size is nice, I didn't want to go to the larger iPad Pro.

    The Best iPad Yet

    Having owned several previous iPad models, I can safely say that Apple has found the perfect balance of power, portability, and screen size with this 10.5-inch model. If you've ever used an iPhone or iPad, you'll feel right at home with this model. PROS: - Beautiful, rich screen. Colors are vibrant and the new ProMotion feature eliminates any lag while scrolling through text. - Perfect size. It's only slightly larger than a 9.7-inch iPad, but the slight increase in screen size and the reduction in bezels really makes a difference. - Amazingly fast. This is the most powerful iOS device yet, and it shows. iOS 11, when released this fall, will make multitasking even easier on the iPad. CONS: - Apple didn't release a back case for this 10.5-inch model. So if you purchase the smart keyboard or smart cover, the back of this iPad will be left exposed unless you find a third-party case. Highly recommended!

    My first iPad and it’s lightning fast and highly responsive to touch. I bought this when it was on sale and I’m highly satisfied. Battery seems to last a very long time with typical use (not gaming). I’ve only charged it once since I got it over two weeks ago. I’m sure it can last one month on standby if tested without a lot of notifications. The sound is very clear and very impressive for a tablet. Multitasking is a breakthrough because most apps can actually share half the screen each while controlling each individually simultaneously and accurately. The 10.5’ is the last generation for fingerprint and with lightning charger. The 11’ and 12.9’ only uses usb-c (fast charge capability) and with facial recognition for security so I didn’t want those options. I’d recommend the 10.5 if you still want a very fast iPad and the features with traditional Apple buttons and security.

    I replaced a 9.7" iPad Pro with this unit. The specs are all better than my previous version, yet, unless I used them side-by-side, I have not noticed the difference between the two different screen sizes. I thought I would really have noticed a difference given the increased screen size of the new unit, but not really. Aside from the screen size, the other differences are subtle. Faster processor, 120 Hz screen refresh, and I believe the interface now supports USB 3. The upgrades were not as significant as I thought they would be, though. I did double my memory, which was nice, and the option for 512 GB was really tempting. If you already have a 9.7" pro, you may want to compare the two side-by-side to make sure it is worth the upgrade. If you have any other iPad besides a Pro, however, there is a lot to love with this new iPad.

    Expensive - But worth it

    I actually purchased this ipad primarily to take notes on. I have a nasty habit of scribbling on notepads and my desk was getting a nice pile of them that were hard to search through. I also travel a fair amount for work and in my personal life so something that would give me good battery life for watching movies on flights and be able to get through a day of meetings and notes was essential. The 10.5" iPad pro delivers. Its expensive for only being used for notes, but the apple pencil works beautifully and the storage capacity and apps available mean I can work in the office all day and just throw it in my bag before hopping on a flight without worrying about HAVING to charge it. As others have mentioned the screen is gorgeous and iOS 11 will hopefully open up a lot of potential that isnt being taken advantage of right now. For the time being im paying for the logo and the "it just works" factor more than anything else. Its way too much power for a tablet, and I don't know anyone who uses tablets that NEEDS an iPad pro rather than a regular ipad but its nice to have the extra power when I want it and i'm hoping it lasts me long enough to justify the cost.

    I upgraded from an iPad Air, and I'm ludicrously happy. Looking at the numbers, 10.5 doesn't seem that much bigger than 9.7, but the difference is notable. I was originally going for the 12.9", but after holding it, it just didn't make sense for my needs. The 10.5 screen hits the sweet spot for a tablet, and the speakers are phenomenal. The speed of apps is great, though as many have pointed out, app developers won't take advantage of the hardware until after iOS 11 releases. If you want a top-of-the-line-almost-laptop-replacement, this comes pretty close. Also, the 120hz screen makes streaming video look incredibly crisp, and you can pretty make out text no matter how fast you scroll. I also purchased the Smart Keyboard, and while I wish there were other options for the Smart Connector (only Logitech), the keyboard is a great addition if you do a lot of typing. All in all, I'd recommend it for anyone who needs a powerful tablet for work, or, you know, just really wants a pretty tablet for watching Game of Thrones on the go.

    I would recommend this to a friend
