    10.5" iPad PRO - 3.5MM Audio Aux. INCLUDED!!!

    I purchased the 512GB Model for the added storage. Great performance as expected for any Apple product. Great sound from the added speakers on this model as well. I'm so glad that Apple has decided to keep the 3.5mm or (1/8") Audio Output Port on this model, otherwise I would have purchased an older model. I really am upset at their decision on the removal of the 3.5mm Aux. jack, NOT the brightest decision in the world to remove the auxiliary audio output jack on all of the new Apple products iPhones. I really don't know of anyone who likes this missing feature, why change something that works?... Apple really thought that it would be wise to try and reinvent the wheel, NOT VERY SMART APPLE! It's always best to have added options when it comes to my choice of headphones or earphones when listening to great music. The new lightning dongle is a joke... Really, (Who wants to carry around another flimsy dongle) that doesn't even give you the option to charge your phone when using the dongle with headphones.... REALLY APPLE? What were you people thinking? Keep the Audio Aux. port and give us the option. Besides, music still sounds so much better from a great set of professional wired headphones anyways. If removing the 3.5mm jack was such a good idea to them, why aren't they brave enough to remove it from all of their computers too... It's simple, nobody would buy one. DJ's across the nation use Mac Computers for one reason...(((SOUND!!!))) You take away their headphone jack option and you just killed your sales on your entire fleet !!! Bring it back APPLE... "If something works, leave it alone"!!!

    Second Generation of the iPad Pro Series

    This is not the latest generation of the iPad Pro series. In fact, Apple no longer makes the iPad Pro in the 10.5 Inch screen size. The newest generations are 11 and 12.9 inch screen sizes; yet, there's little difference in terms of performance between this unit and the most current iterations. Admittedly, the new series use a supposedly faster chip (the A12), while the model under review ran on an earlier chip. Yet, for most people, the difference in chip speed is barely worth the difference in price. Similarly, the newest models of the iPad Pro have supposedly faster wifi connectivity; but since actual wifi speeds depend on a whole series of factors, including your router set up, this difference may not matter that much. The most important element in any iPad is of course the software, and to that extent, there is essentially no significant difference in the ability of the variouys iPads to run compatible software. iOS12 will install and run just as readily on this iPad as on the newer ones. And, the 10.5 cost me significantly less than the newer iPad pros. It's a good bargain.

    Another iPad...well done, well done

    I have no idea about the new features. I wanted the additional storage space...528GB...no more choosing for about a year...Comixology eats up storage space... I like the larger screen, but can no longer hold the iPad with one hand for extended periods of time. As always, setup, ease of use, screen quality are top notch. I miss the Apple cases (expensive, but so slim). I have a Speck case (my second...the first one gave its corner protecting the iPad from a drop...iPad fine...Speck case not so much). IPad does what I want it to do in one of the most elegant and enticing packages available. I am not a power user. Video and photos of my son’s high school orchestra concert turned out well despite a darkened, open theater. Sound quality was better than average. Other than that, and lots of reading, I can’t comment much. Comixology is a dream on this screen with this form factor.

    I take and edit lots of pictures so I needed something with a lot of storage and decent processing power. I’ve had this ipad less than a year and already have over 50,000 photos on it, at about 5MB each. After a photo shoot I’ll upload hundreds of photos with the Apple SD card reader - they upload very quickly. Then I edit them with the Photoshop Express app, amongst others. This ipad hasn’t let me down yet - I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s also been great for downloading movies off Netflix and streaming music and video without a glitch, along with all the usual stuff like email, surfing the web and Facebook. A wonderful product. If you like things done fast and don’t want to wait for them to load, this is it!

    Never been an Apple fan. But this is a nice unit. But my first new unit had an issue with the touch screen, just shy of 30 days in. Everything worked, displayed fine and executed but the touch feature failed and Geek Squad couldn't fix it and gave me a new one. Second one still working, although definitely not a clone. A few features seem just a little different, like being able to fully select Dropbox as a storage location from apps. This 2nd one only wants local or Apple cloud for storage and Dropbox isn't an option, even though it's available. Otherwise, the 10.5 pro is the perfect size and speed with really great battery life.

    It’s my first time since I had iPad mini I got finally iPad Pro 10.5 I look at it is beautiful I feel that is light cool. Wow it’s smooth fast pretty it does. So I’m not playing into any games on iPad because battery is going to down and overheating I don’t want to. I like to draw I learn how to draw or do note or homework or something. I love iPad Pro is amazing I have seen it in my life. it’s expensive but I saw it Best Buy online for sale. I say iPad Pro 10.5 is beautiful.

    Best. Tablet. Ever. Lots to do! Love the "pen"!

    I pondered whether to spend this much on my 8yo son, but I am an apple lover and familiar with the products, so this replaced his Samsung tablet. I could never figure out the prior tablet. Thought maybe Amazon kids tablet was the answer. Yes, economical, but you're limited on what you can do, so here we are and couldn't be happier with the IPad Pro. My DS is also becoming quite a sketch artist with the use of the pen. We got lots of memory so it won't become obsolete or unusable in the future. I think it'll last a while.

    I started with an iPad 1, then a 3. Finally upgraded and couldn’t be more pleased. It’s much faster. The screen is crisp and clear. You can see two apps running side by side, although it’s confusing to setup at first. This iPad is so light I was afraid of breaking it so I bought a Logitech case and backlit keyboard combo. It’s cheaper than the Apple keyboard and protects the back.

    I have owned eight different iPads and this is by far my favorite. It is much faster and the screen resolution is a noticeable improvement. The audio is fantastic as well. The ability to use an Apple pen is great too. I have used a stylus on my other iPads but they never seemed to work as well as I wanted. Latency and accuracy were always an issue. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an upgrade.

    First thing I noticed was the iPad Pro felt much lighter than the earlier models, with a sleeker profile. The display was crystal clear and everything worked straight out of the box without a hitch. The other big reason I upgraded was significantly greater memory capacity. The only minor frustration I have is with iTunes latest update where they took away the functions for managing files and apps. Otherwise, very happy with the iPad Pro.

    Apple iPad Pro 10.5

    My daughter loved it! We still own an original Apple Mini and it works, just very slow so we decided to buy her the new iPadPro for school work. After much research, it is a good alternative for a high school student and much cheaper than a laptop. Just buy a keyboard and presto! This was a holiday purchase and Best Buy price matched another retail store for us so we were super happy! Quality Product and Awesome Price!!!Thanks Best Buy and thanks Apple!

    I've owned 3 previous iterations of the iPad, and each was better than the last in one way or another. The new 10.5" pro is better in every way. It's lighter (than my 3rd gen retina), faster, better screen, ... so on and so forth. If you have an older one and are looking for an upgrade, I recommend that 10.5". To me, the 12" is too big and bulky. the 10.5" is slight enough to be held in one hand, but big enough to be able to draw, right and edit on with ease.

    I LOVE my iPad Pro! The unique design of the keyboard that magnetizes onto the iPad is genius. If you need to use this attached keyboard in the dark or while in bed, get one with a built in light (if there is such a thing) or use near a lamp. Otherwise switch over and use the iPad’s internal keyboard. I don’t think I’ve used our home computer since buying this iPad Pro. I’d definitely buy it again.

    I'm an iPad rather than an iPhone person and have gone from the original iPad to IPad Air 2 to now the iPad Pro 10.5 inch and have been very pleased with each upgrade in feature and quality. I love the large screen and image quality of the 10.5 inch, but found that the 12.5 inch model was too big for me. I also like the protective case and keyboard combo accessory as I use it so much on my travels.

    I have an older Ipad that still works very well. This one was a definite upgrade though. I am on it a lot so thought I would see if I could notice a difference between the one I have and the Pro. The pro is a lot faster and smoother. I would absolutely recommend. I wish I could find a Snugg case to fit it though.

    I had my iPad mini for four years, I wasn't convinced I needed to upgrade until I went to Best Buy and used it. I read reviews, watched videos, then tried it for myself. I have had it for a month and fell in love. The screen is beautiful, the camera is awe inspiring, my videos/photos are stunning. Apps like Adobe sketch bring my digital drawing to another level with the pencil. The app updates via apple is also a perk.

    The IPad Pro is amazing. I have used other tablets and keep coming back to the IPad. They are high performance machines to the point my laptop is almost unnecessary. The display is crystal-clear, and the 10.5" display is plenty for me - more compact. I would recommend the keyboard as a necessary item. I also purchased the pencil, but I have not used it enough to provide feedback.

    Love the new functionality of being able to use a pencil for work meetings. Has transformed my meeting prep having all my meetings notes/agendas in one spot rather than different notebooks. 5 coworkers have now gotten a Pro for use at work. The screen captures the pencil well without picking up on your palm/hand. Display is also great. Highly recommend getting larger GB if you plan on having it awhile.

    Just when I thought the iPad couldn't be improved---it has! The small increase in screen size is noticeable when viewing but doesn't result in a noticeable increase in the iPads footprint when you carry it around--that's a win-win for me. The resolution is even better and that's noticeable too. All-in-all an improvement over my previous version of the iPad and I'm glad I decided to buy this latest version.

    I decided to move from my MacBook Air laptop to the iPad Pro. It is faster, which really surprised me. I was able to download Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint in seconds (need them for work), and they work seamlessly. The speaker sound is impressive, and the ability to link by Bluetooth to my cell phone internet/data service is awesome. Now I can literally work anywhere.
