    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 for Productivity

    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?

    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.

    Will all the 9.7 inch ipad format versions out there, this truly stands out from the crowd. Being “pro” means a better resolution screen, wide color gamut, high brightness and iPencil gen 1 compatibility. Disappointed in the fact that apple decided to do away with this on the 11” making this obsolete. Can be had for great price with any remaining inventory around. The move from 9.7 to 10.5 sounds small on paper but compared side by side it’s noticeable. Also the quad speakers do not disappoint compared to all the non Pro models out there.

    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!

    Switched from a Samsung tablet. Like the features built into this tablet. Was told it was just a big phone. Since my iPhone was a lifeline after Hurricane Irma, this actually helped me decide to purchase the tablet. I like the larger size for most everything I do because it's easier to read, watch movies, and manipulate. Don't use it for phone calls, though you could. Finding I use my desktop less and less, but it should be said that this does not have all the features of a desktop/laptop. Still learning features that are beyond the basics, but it's pretty intuitive.

    This is by far the best iPad apple has released I'm coming from a 9.7 iPad Pro to this at first I thaught the size difference would be a minimal upgrade but after using this it is the perfect size not to big like the 12.9 and not too small like the 9.7 and when they used the term smooth they are not lying this thing is super fast and has a great picture for watching video on the go can't wait for the new iOS to be released but in the meantime this is still the best apple has to offer

    I bought this iPad to replace a 2nd gen one that I've had for about 10-11 years. (It still works and was passed on to another family member). iPad is a great investment & I have confidence that this one will stand the test of time as well! I have nothing negative to say! The speed is super fast even on data connections. It has amazing graphics & capabilities that make multitasking simple and seamless! A must for professionals or grad school students!! Long battery life even utilizing multiple windows for hours at a time. Perfect size for portability! Great choice!

    This new cellular IPad replaces an older cellular IPad that had served me well. While this new IPad was a big investment I know that I will be able to get plenty of good use out of it for some time. I love how very fast it is, the great quality of pictures that it takes, and the convenience of being able to use it to connect to the internet by cellular. I do some teacher training and I am sometimes in places where I can’t get a WiFi connection for my Mac, so I can quickly pull out my cellular IPad if needed. Great product!

    I bought this to replace my iPad Air 2 and it was worth it. The size factor is great and I love the smaller bezels. The speed on this iPad Pro is incredible. Gestures are fast and sometimes when I am swiping it feels like I am using Benny Hill fast forward speed. I read comics from the Marvel Unlimited app and the downloads are almost instant while I used to have to wait a good 10-15 seconds for the comics to download. iOS 11 is what will really make this iPad shine. I can't wait in the mean time I will enjoy this iPad Pro.

    I have been in need of the ability to hand write notes and do more advanced editing on my iPad. So I finally decided to bite the bullet and upgrade from my iPad Air 2 to the iPad Pro 10.5. So far, I am quite impressed. I was not expecting as much of an upgrade in performance, but apparently the significant difference in ram as well as the A10 processor makes a world of difference! I also needed cellular data, and so opted for then LTE version (which gives you real GPS function as well). Overall, I am quite happy with this iPad Pro 10.5!

    The 10.5" iPad Pro really strikes a great balance between the portability of the 9.7" form factor, and the larger screen of the 12.9" form factor. The screen is amazing in quality, and the sound quality from this iPad's speakers is truly astounding. I also love having Apple's Smart Keyboard Cover - though it is pricey and doesn't come with back protection for the iPad (but then again, this is a review of the iPad, not the keyboard cover). Overall, Apple has met every expectation that I had of this iPad Pro.

    The updated 10.5" screen looks gorgeous thanks to the new adaptive refresh rate, it almost makes switching back to the iPhone difficult. The new size is amazingly a great footprint over the old 9.7 inch model and yet the overall size between my iPad Air 2 is negligible. It's great to get the extra screen real estate while maintaining almost the same size and weight. I love the new keyboard Smart Cover, it makes the iPad a lot more productive on the go with applications like email and documents. Fantastic Apple product as always.

    Having owned almost all iPads with the Air 2 being the most recent, this is honestly is my favorite iPad to date. The speed of every task is impressive. The sound from the 4 speakers are pleasantly surprisingly good. I really enjoy the 120Hz refresh rate on the screen, this makes scrolling so smooth. 256 gigs of storage at the mid range allows for tons of content. Only dislikes would be the price (I feel like this should be lower) & the battery life could be better.

    I got it on sale here after iPad Air 3 came out for silver 256gb, WiFi + cellular unlocked (no contract) for $630 + tax. You can’t beat the price. Compared with new iPad Air 3 for $779 same spec(new so no discount). This is much better value. Don’t worry about older CPU (A10X in this iPad Pro and A12 for new iPad Air). I currently have iPad mini 4 (A8 I believe). It’s running just fine.

    Traded in the ipad Air ll to BB for a fair price considering it was 4.5 years old. The new 10.5 inch with 256 K and Cellular is amazing and satisfies all my needs almost as much as a laptop for what I do. The cameras are far superior to the Air, 4 speakers so I do not need a separate speaker. I am 100$ pleased with this unit and it cost the same out the door as the 4 year old iPad Air, go figure.

    This 10.5-inch iPad is turning out to be a better purchase than expected. The 120Hz display upgrade works very well and the overall processing power is fluid. I cannot wait to install OS 11 on this iPad. From reading reviews of people installing the Beta of OS 11 on the 10.5-inch iPad, they all stated that the combination of new hardware + new software will be tough to beat by the competition. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone that this is the iPad to get.
