    Great Device

    I don't think anyone would dispute that an iPad pro wouldn't stand up to expectations. I was hesitant to get the pro over the regular iPad, what would really be the difference? (1) The iPad starts at 32GB, which I thought would be enough, but once apps and everything was installed, I would only have 10GB to space! The iPad pro (double the cost of the regular iPad) starts at 64GB of storage. This gives me a lot of wiggle room and then I don't have to worry. (2) The iPad pro really does respond well to the Apple pen. I haven't tried any other pen with the iPad pro yet, but I like that this option is here. As a college student who is always on the go, I'm glad to have this technology. (3) Speakers! The regular iPad only has speakers on the bottom of the device. On the other hand, the iPad pro has speakers on the top and bottom. This made a difference to me. (4) I like the idea that the iPad pro is meant to work with a keyboard. I know that most tablets would work with any bluetooth keyboard, but the iPad pro is meant to work great with the Apple iPad Pro keyboard. (5) The front facing camera on the regular iPad is a huge disappointment when compared to the iPad pro (or even the iPhone 7, which came out about 6 months before the iPads). I don't really use this feature, but to know that I am paying for a quality product, and the best that Apple can provide isn't included makes me less happy with the purchase. So, buying the iPad pro makes me think that I am buying the best tablet on the market now, which makes me feel good. (6) Lastly, I am an Apple user. I really considered getting Samsung's flagship tablet, since it seemed to basically stand up to the test without fail. However, I have a MacBook and an iPhone and my life would just be easier if I stuck with Apple. Overall, I gave the iPad pro 4 stars because it matched my expectations for an Apple device, which are high. It is a great tablet and will certainly prove it's use! However, there isn't much that seems revolutionary with this device. I'm sure that it will work great with iOS 11 that is coming soon.

    iPad Pro 10.5 - Better fit than 9.7

    I have used several iPads since iPad 2. My last was iPad mini 4. As good as iPads have been since the original, the latest 10.5 with Apple Pencil took it to another level that no other competing device has attempted. Since getting this iPad 10.5, I rarely touch my $700 Lenovo Yoga laptop. Though I can see the Laptop being pulled out for full fledge multi page work. But so far, for 90% of my daily interactions with media/technology, this iPad has comfortably met and exceeded my needs without a second thought of a laptop. Cons: Yes, there are some cons. As good as iPads are in general, there are still a few areas that screams for attention. 1) Multi-user profile - whereby two people can use the same iPad with separate IDs but without seeing or altering each other's account settings, background preferences, as well as media contents. Similar to what we have on computers. 2) Apple please make it easier to add and remove devices to iTunes Family Sharing account as needed. Currently, when you associate your iPad to one account, to remove and add it to another family sharing account requires 60-90 day wait period for that to happen. That's outrageous.

    I purchased this item as a way to access my e-mail and pay bills while being confined to bed following a medical procedure. I had never used an iPhone, iPod, or any other portable device that can be used to access the internet. I was confounded at first and struggled a bit when I discovered that there are essentially no printed instructions; however, after downloading the instruction manual and reviewing it in iBooks, I found this item fairly easy to use. There are a few things about it that frustrate me. But, l am sure that I will either adjust, or learn what I’m doing wrong. After purchase, Best Buy offers instruction/set-up free of charge. For individuals such as me, who have limited knowledge and experience with such technology, it would be a good idea to make an appointment to do so. With these things being said, I am happy with this product and am pleased that I chose it.

    Best compact iPad

    I got the base model 10.5 inch Pro. I got this because i didnt want to carry around my pc in my backpack on campus and also because i had an iPhone; this device works seemlessly with my iPhone. For example i can charge my iPhone upstairs and if i get a message or phone call i can reply on my iPad. As for school i use it to take notes and its very light and compact. Im still trying to decide which MacBook model i want but for now this iPad will do just fine. The processor is literally the best processor i have ever seen on any device. This thing is smoother than Melting butter. The four stereo speakers sound so great i cant even compare them to any tablet. As far as resolution this iPad is clearer than any orher iPad (Unless you get the 12.9 in. iPad which has higher resolution) im really enjoying my iPad and im super confident it will last a long time even after my college journey.

    Purchased this about 3 weeks ago when I got it for $519. And I love this thing. Went from an Apple IPad Air 1 and this thing is 1000x faster than that. I also had the benefit of having the iPad 2017 and tested both. The 10.5 was still slightly faster and can do a lot more. But does it warrant the $250 price diffference? If you have a recent iPad then no, get the IPad. If you have an older iPad and want to upgrade and do lots of work or art design or even music and want to keep current with the 10,000 iOS updates then grab this. But the IPad 2017 is more than enough if all you do is watch Netflix, text and lounge and as of Dec. 2017 is $279. IPad Pro 10.5 is great device and geared (in my opinion) for a college student or creator or the I want as close to a mobile, light “computer” as possible.

    iPad for Business

    A colleague of mine was trying to go paperless. He used an iPad and Apple Pencil for taking notes at meetings. I never had an iPad nor did I see a reason for getting one, but after looking at the stack of legal pads and journals with meeting notes I thought he might have something. To date, the iPad is completely fulfilling my needs. Working with my company, I have set up the iPad to take notes. Granted this could be done with any tablet, but the iPad pro has a great screen and interacts well with my other Apple products. Screen is crisp and bright. New IOS adds great new features. I would definitely buy it again. The only CON is that a few times in the middle of an app the screen goes blank and then I get the apple logo. Not sure what this is about and will be contacting Apple to make sure all is ok.

    I don't really need all the latest bells and whistles, so the economy model would have been fine for my use. I am really glad I spent extra to get the larger size screen....it is awesome. I upgraded from an iPad 3 that was also much heavier...again a plus. I had to return the first one I purchased because it would not stay connected to wi-fi (Best Buy made the return a breeze). I was on the phone with Apple for a couple hours trying things the night before the last day I could return it in store, but nothing made it stay connected. Occasionally the screen will just go black on the current one. I can hear Siri, but can see nothing. I have to shut it down and restart to get the screen back. This happens on my iPhone as well. Makes me concerned about my Apple products I used to love and trust so much.

    A Good Alternative to the New Pad Air

    This (now old) 10.5" iPad Pro is a good alternative to the new 10.5" iPad Air, providing similar performance while simultaneously packing quad speakers (instead of 2 on the iPad Air), and a better screen. If, however, you're looking for the latest and greatest to last a long time, being old tech, this is the wrong place to look. The new 11" iPad Pro will give you much better performance and packs much better speakers. You'll pay for the privilege, but I suspect the newer models will last you much longer down the road if you're the type that hangs on to their tablets until they are past obsolete, as I tend to.

    Got sick of all the android guys giving up on their devices far before the 18months they were supposed to (even that too short, though Samsung release firmware for their budget device that's 2.5yrs old). So I grabbed an Apple iPad Pro. Sure it's the older one, but I don't need the extras that the new model has, plus the 10.5 is the last version Moko made my favorite case for. Other than a few little things the iPad is the best Google tablet you can get. Chrome, Google Assistant, Gmail, Google Photos and you've got an "android" tablet won't be abandoned in the next few months.

    Subtle Upgrade from Air 2

    Posted

    I thought the iPad Pro would WoW me. It didn’t. Yet, it didn’t let me down either. It’s a subtle upgrade. The screen is slightly larger. It’s not noticeably larger though. I wouldn’t want an iPad to be larger than 10.5 inches. Honestly, the resolution hasn’t really jumped out at me as a huge upgrade. There are more pixels, but the screen is larger. So I’m not seeing a huge upgrade of resolution. The software seems faster. It’s an improvement. But it’s not a major upgrade. The price point was about the same as my Air 2, so it was worth the money. I wouldn’t over pay for an iPad Pro.

    I upgraded from an iPad Air 2 to the new iPad Pro 10.5. As one would expect, it performs better due to it's more powerful processor. Though the screen is larger, it's not cumbersome to use or hold and weight doesn't seem to much heavier than the Air 2 it replaced. Screen resolution is about the same but Apple made some tech improvements to improve how we view the display. The better camera is nice to have, though you won't find stand on the rim of the Grand Canyon with my iPad taking vacation pictures. While I could have gotten away with buying a regular iPad, it wasn't a big enough of an improvement over what I already had to justify buying one.

    This is my third iPad buy. I bought the original when introduced, then a later generation about 4 years ago and now the latest version. Had good experiences with the first the first two versions but when I bought the newest version, it would not charge. I returned to the store a few hours later and explained the issue. The store could not get it to change either so ggthey gave me a replacement. The replacement had been flawless for its first 3 months & the setup was a breeze So Apple does make the occasional dud...but great service in making it work for me

    This replaces an original iPad that I have used for years. The processor speed is significantly improved, the screen is very sharp and bright, photos are excellent quality and the unit is dramatically lighter than the older model I was using. Unfortunately Safari as a browser has the same frequency of annoying pop ups and the option to block cookies except for websites I visit has been removed from the option list. Overall this is a well engineered iPad with numerous features, both useful and window dressing.

    I really like my iPad Pro for convenience and using OneNote to take notes for my classes, but I really don’t think it is versatile enough to replace a laptop which is what I was hoping it could do. My biggest complaint is being able to save files and having to use the cloud and google drive. I really wish it had a usb drive. Other than that, its really great the battery life is fantastic and Apple Pencil is a must. There really should be an iPad and pencil bundle instead of having to buy it separately.

    The screen on this is amazing. Its so smooth and fast that you really have to see it to believe it. the 120hz screen is for me the main reason to purchase this Pro. I wanted to love it as the build quality and audio are fantastic but im one of the few that seems to not get along with iOS. I had an iPhone for years up until the iPhone 5 then moved on as i got bored of the system and it seems that not a lot has changed since then which i found surprising. If you love iOS then you will adore the iPad. I would recommend this to a friend for sure

    I traded up from the iPad air two to the iPad Pro 10 1/2 inch, and it’s a very powerful machine with a beautiful screen. The downsides of this upgrade where that is heavier than the iPad air two, and I think the battery life is not quite as good likely due to that power. The forthcoming iPadOS will turn this piece of beautiful hardware into the powerhouse that it should be.

    This is my first IPad. MacPro died and I needed something fast. Visited my local Best Buy the morning after the death of the MacPro and decided an IPad could suit my needs. It takes a little getting used to since now I can touch screens and use apps! It seems powerful enough to handle my needs. Sometimes keys aren’t responsive to the touch the first time. I’ve had a few weird things happen like losing WiFi when I was very close to the router...overall, satisfied with the purchase.

    I bought a Tab S2 and was Very Disappointed with how much Google Garbage came in it, (plus it can't be removed or Force Stopped) so I returned it for a refund and started played with Fruit (Apples) for the 1st time ever... I was very impressed with how Fast and Smooth the iPad Pro(s) worked so I ended up getting a iPad Pro 10.5... BEST decision ever as far as Tablets are concerned!!! My only complaint (why I didn't give it 5-stars) is that the WiFi Only doesn't have GPS in it?!?!?!

    This is my first iPad ever. I didn't see the need since I already had an iPhone, Kindle, Dell Laptop, & desktop computer, but I'm glad I made the leap. So much like the phone, it was easy to set up "my way" and I may (no promises) read my newspapers here instead of print eventually. Love the light weight and big screen. Wish I'd done this earlier! May even go to 5 stars after a bit more use.

    This my 3rd iPad and it is by far the best. The screen is brighter, the battery life is awesome, and and it is lightning fast. Even when I compare it to my wife’s Samsung Galaxy S2, it blows it away in every way, except for the Amoled screen that Samsung uses. Although this iPad’s screen is much better than previous versions. You will have to pay a hefty price for it, so if you do decide to get one you won’t be disappointed.
