    Best Revision Since the Original!

    Simply the best revision of the iPad in history. I'll give a quick summary, then list the pro's and cons. First, this thing is insanely fast, compact, and the new folio keyboard is in my opinion tenfold better than the ladder 10.5 pro keyboard. This is so compact, by the pictures you can see how slim it is with the keyboard over. It now covers the Front AND Back of the iPad, making it completely worth it plus 2 angles. I honestly don't think the iPad Pro 11 is worth it without the folio. Second, this thing is so compact, i'll be taking it everywhere, and while writing the review i'm playing music on it while taking pictures on it. My laptop I would never do that. If you travel a lot, leave your laptop at home and take this! I can remote into my desktop at home for heavy IT reliant jobs. Pros: -Out of this world A12X performance. This 7nm new chip from Apple is honestly evolutionary. It compares to an i7 7700k from Intel! This is a huge watt chip that is in a desktop. Coming from a guy with an MIS (IT) degree, I hate to be dramatic, but it is evolutionary. The claims are true. -New compact factor: Finally apple reworked the chassis and made nearly full screen and more compact. Perfect size. -Great Speakers (playing music while my desktop speakers are in front of me) the speakers are so good. -New Folio keyboard is so much better this iteration. -Slim weight and size (boxed) -USBC was definitely needed for a "laptop replacement" argument Cons: There are a few cons that really should be addressed in the iPad Pro 11 Inch "2?" -USBC port is great, but when I plug directly into my drone, it doesn't read the SD card like cameras are advertised to. Not sure why. Hoping iOS uodates fix this. -It is quite expensive. I'd rather see this lower around $699 starting. $799 for the 128GB instead of $949 for the 256GB -Getting rid of the headphone jack really turns me off personally. It could easily fit it, apple wants you to go wireless in their ecosystem and cave in on it. I understand, but it isn't practical yet to get as good of quality as wired earbuds. Until then, i'll use my old wired pair. Hopefully new developments soon on this area. -Mouse movement would be cool, but would add bulk. Some in between solution would be great of apple to come up with. Perhaps a stylus type deal where you can "draw it" on a counter to move the mouse area. If you are planning to wait, don't! This is the biggest update in the iPad history. Like a review said online, there will not be a major reworking for a while (like the iPhone X and XS). I am extremely picky and return products with the slightest disappointment, and I do not regret it at all. 64GB storage is plenty for me even with 4k drone videos and a lot of pictures. Would rather pay $100 more for 128GB (or should be standard with this price point). You get what you pay for in the Tech Business!

    Switching to iOS World

    First a little background so you can understand where I’m coming from. My first PC was a PC Junior, souped up to double the ram from 64K to 128K. I read the MS-DOS, 1-2-3 and Word Perfect manuals cover to cover. So, I’ve always been comfortable in a keyboard world. In fact, I still use the 2007 command menu stucture in Excel because its faster and easier for me to remember the old keystrokes rather than having to look at the screen and figure out where the commands are in the latest version. I had a 7 year old iPAD and a 3.5 year old PC. When my PC started crawling, I started thinking what my next computer would be. We have smart TVs at home, so I figured out how to manage e-mails and online news via TV. So, I wanted something very compact that let me use Excel, Word, and possibly PowerPoint on the road. I have used MS Office for many years, but am trying to avoid buying ANOTHER copy of Office. In the iOS world, apps are purchased once and generally updated for free. I’ve been very happy with my Apple iPad, iPhones and Watch. Office 2017 is a single purchase which works on notebooks and MicroSoft’s Surface tablet. Office 365 is a subscription purchase which works on iPads. I decided to go with the iPad Pro because it’s speedy processor is likely to be servicable for much longer than the Surface. When buying a computer, you should view purchase price in relation to useful life. A more expensive computer that lasts twice as long could be the cheaper option. I did get the Apple keyboard and pencil too. Others have complained about the lack of a mouse. I don’t find that a problem, perhaps because I use the keyboard more than most. Moving my hand from the keyboard to grab a pencil isn’t that different than grabbing a mouse. Ditto for tapping the pencil vs. moving the cursor via a mouse. And the pencil is wonderful because it’s so much more accurate than my finger and doesn’t leave smudges on the screen. I don’t find the keyboard very noisy. A particular need for me was the size of the right shift key. I’m used to a double-wide shift key, which the Apple keyboard has. Some newer notebooks and WiFi keyboards use a single-wide right shift key and place the up arrow where the left side of the shift key would be. This would cause the cursor to jump up instead of capitalizing - a non-starter for me. I have been using the free Excel and Word apps on my Apple devices for several months. I find that large Excel files aren’t stable on iCloud. It occasionally crashes leaving an unintelligible file on your device. Fortunately, a recent version can be recovered from iCould.com. So I save key files on iCloud, One Drive and a jump drive. Apple also adds a sequencing number to your file name, which is something MicroSoft manages around. The free versions are scaled down. They do open password protected files, but in read-only mode. And they don’t support more exotic formulas or more sophisticated word processing commands. So far, it’s working fine for me on the road and I can clean up the rest at home on my PC. Not finding the lack of a USB drive option too much of an issue. I am using iCould and OneDrive. I also am using SanDisk’s iXpand drive, which allows me to load files from PCs to my iPhone via a jump drive in cases where I don’t want stuff on the cloud. And I can AirDrop files back and forth between my phone and iPad. That being said, I would like Apple to enable file sharing via the USB-C port since my iPhone 8 has a lightning connector and I’m hoping Apple will move to USB-C ports in the future. Now that Apple’s taking a beating in the market, maybe they’ll try to be a little more customer friendly. Bottom line is that I’m very happy with the iPad Pro, but still learning the various gestures and Apple’s way of doing thins. If I were doing a lot of heavy duty work (I’m not, since I’m retired), I would consider getting the 12.9” model to fully use the split screen option. For example, I was writing an article in Word on the left side of the screen while looking up facts online on the right side of the screen. That’s a little small on the 11” model. But I like the lower cost and more compact size of the smaller model.

    Absolutely worth the cost if your a creator

    First I will answer the big question. No, my iPad Pro was not bent when I took it out of the box. It actually feels quite sturdy and not like the tin foil that online forums make it out to be. I don’t have any concerns with durability at all. If it’s really a worry of yours then put a case on the iPad. You’ll want one anyway to at least help with holding the iPad upright. The speed of the new iPad Pro is incredible. Everything happens nearly instantly and without any stutter or pause. Even when running a graphic design application in split view mode along with safari and YouTube playing in the background there are no slow downs. 4K video editing doesn’t even cause the iPad to get warm, much less slow down. Zero dropped frames in 4K video edits either. The screen is among the best available. The largest available size at 12.9 inches is of most benefit if you edit photos / videos or draw / design a lot with the iPad. It’s also nice when using split screen view since both applications remain large enough to be usable. I think the 11 inch is perfect for most people though. Face ID is accurate and fast. It works no matter what orientation the IPad is in and you don’t have to be directly in front of the iPad for it to work. No worries here. The Apple Pencil 2 is a must if you get an iPad Pro. It’s amazing how accurate it is. I can draw with the same precision with Apple Pencil as I can with a real pencil and paper. The magnet for charging the pencil is strong and easy to use. Battery life is as good as ever. I can use the iPad all day and have no worries about running out of charge. I’d say 8 to 10 hours of moderate to heavy use is accurate. I was going between this iPad Pro and a MacBook Pro 13 inch. Everyone has different needs but I am happy with my choice to get the iPad. I can import photos and videos from an SD card and edit like I do on the computer. With the iPad I get the benefit of Apple Pencil which makes editing more fun for me. I also get to draw in professional level applications which is nicer than drawing on a Wacom tablet or paper. The only thing missing is a keyboard. I’ll be getting an Apple Magic keyboard to use rather than the keyboard cover. It’s cheaper and can be used with anything, not just the iPad. I still have a pro level laptop but thus far I haven’t needed it. The iPad Pro has done everything I need it to do.

    More than a tablet for most

    Besides the screen going closer to the bezels on all sides, this is permanent form factor of what a tablet should be. This thing is a powerhouse but unfortunately running iOS 12 and not something closer to MacOS. Do most people need this much power in a tablet, no. Is it future proof for at least the next 4-5 years, yes. If you want an iPad that you do a little emailing with, social media, and content consumption, then this is overpowered for what you need and you might want to think of the 9.7 first gen pro or the 6th gen iPad. But if you don't mind the base price of $799 and want to replace your dying iPad Air or older, then this will mean you don't need to shop another iPad for many years. The feel is very different. Akin to the iPhone 5 and 5s with this straight edges and not the curved ones from previous iPads. If you are an iPad photographer, then you will like the rear cam on this as it is the same as the one on the iPhone Xr. Get this because: you want to really push an iPad to make it your new laptop but know you have to hack your way through your workflow to make it work, want the latest and greatest just because, or you want to replace a very old iPad and not have to think about getting a new one for years.

    Sure there are other tablets out there, but whether you love or hate Apple, they’re really the only game in town when it comes to tablets. And with this one they’ve taking the bar and buried it! The new iPad, from the build quality, to the fluidity of the software, to its performance is an absolute knockout . If you’re coming from anything other than the last gen iPad pros you’ll notice a huge gain in performance, the new A12x processor handles everything easily. Face ID performs flawlessly and these are the first apple products that work in landscape or portrait mode. The new iPads are the first iOS devices to use usb-c and come with a fast charger in the box. This gives you the ability to plug into digital cameras and import photos and videos, external displays and even charge your iPhone from your iPad. This to me is the first tablet that truly blurs the line between tablets and PCs. For some people that doesn’t hold true, but for a large part of the population it does now with these new iPads. There really is no better tablet on the market.

    I use this device for business and there is nothing that it cannot do. I use the stylus for meeting notes and the keyboard is great. I am running Office 365 daily, along with other industry applications. If the budget allows, I would go with the 12". I went with the 256 model in that I live in the cloud and do not worry about losing things. Additionally, I love the size and the inclusion of faceID. While this is not a traditional computer, it is a computer and is quite a capable machine. It is a part of my daily routine and find it to be indispensable. While I could have gone with a Surface device, the iPad is instant on and never crashes when I need it. Don't listen to the ads or nay sayers out there. The applications are solid and built well on the App Store. The reason I would go with the Apple device is simple: I can run Google, Microsoft and Apple apps all on this device. Google is limited to Google. While cheaper, the Google devices are limited. With the iPad Pro, I use Gsuite and Hangouts Chat, but I also use Facetime and Messages...something you don't have on an android device. My only problem with the device is that it is expensive and I think that Apple is getting a little greedy. While not an issue, my older iPad Pro seems to have a richer sound with deeper bass. Other than that, I highly recommend

    Very High Quality Piece of Equipment

    I upgraded to the 11” iPad Pro from a Gen 2 iPad Mini w/ Retina. The difference is astonishing, as expected since the Mini was 4 years old. I was thinking about getting the 12.9” model. I’m far from a professional user, and only use the iPad occasionally. Not a very good artist, either. I still wanted the bigger screen so my neck wouldn’t have to bend down when the iPad is on my lap and I’m using the keyboard folio. Tried using both models in store, and was immediately turned off by the 12.9” model. The screen is stunning, and it does split view in full size screens as opposed to the iPhone view on the 11” model. Unless you’re planning on editing video, etc or using the iPad as a near computer replacement, this is something I feel comfortable forgoing due to the portability of the 11”. You’re looking at around a 3/4 lb increase in weight with the 12.9” w/ keyboard folio. That doesn’t seem like a lot, but with the increased awkwardness of the size, it is a huge practical difference. I wanted something to travel with and have pretty small hands, so the 11” with keyboard folio is fantastic. You save a couple hundred dollars as well.

    I really love this device! So much that I originally purchased one for my wife in Space grey and I tested it out and fell in love. I also got me one (to not confuse devices) in silver! I can't get over this full screen and absolute sleekness of this iPad Pro. I never owned a iPad nor a Pro, so why not get the best on the market for my first go?! This device runs smooth, Face ID is quick and efficient. The resolution is amazing. I watch videos on youtube, movies and remote played PS4 games on this guy. I usually try to protect all my purchases and get a tempered glass screen, but this time I went with a a matte or paper like screen for the better use of the app Procreate. The matte screen does not even effect the picture quality. And the new Apple Pencil is just genius. I love the tap feature to change tools. The way you don't have to charge it separately, and how it is light but very powerful. The pencil feels so natural, like an actual led pencil, no fatigue with everyday use. If you are looking for a new iPad, you should give this one a try!

    I traded in my older 9.7” iPad Pro to put toward this device. This iPad is a bit expensive and I wish Apple would have kept the 128gb option. That capacity is perfect for my needs and it would also offer another price point I think would sell. Outside of that...this device is powerful, fast and it is a great design! I had the original Apple Pencil but didn’t really use it a lot. Partially because I didn’t have an application I used often for it and because it was something I would need to remember to bring. With this iPad and the new Apple Pencil it is great that it charges wirelessly via magnets on the side. This allows me to take advantage of the Pencil and the iPad more. I use the device for email, notes, reading comics, websites, books and pretty much anything that isn’t very intensive. I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend this devise to anyone who has the budget and is in the Apple ecosystem. This device should last for years.

    Apples Value Proposition Is Odd

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    For me, this is a tough one. It has more power than their new MacBook Air, yet it doesn't offer as much value as the Surface Pro 6 when you are comparing them. Pros: Display Weight Responsiveness Cons: Durability? Lack of OS Price Storage Options No Expansion. I like the iPad pro, but why doesn't Apple turn this idea into a Microsoft Pro like idea where it can run full OS? There's just some things that a iPad Pro can't do. I understand that Adobe apps are coming to the iPad, but if the app isn't in the app store, can't just download the program. The durability of this iPad is a little worriesome too. I feel that it can crack pretty easy, and that it may bend a bit too easy as well. It's just okay, diehard iPad fans will love it, but everyone else should probably look at the Surface line.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using this device. I’ve upgraded from a 1st gen IPad Pro and enjoy the responsiveness of the system and the screen. Hopefully, Apple will add programs in the future which will take advantage of the processor and speed. There is plenty of headroom for future applications. I enjoy having the extra power if needed. Photoshop will be a nice addition when it is available. I would say I wish there were a headphone jack. However, you can purchase an adapter if you need it. Overall, the iPad is well made and is a quick, responsive and beautiful piece of hardware. If you already have a 2nd gen iPad Pro, I wouldn’t recommend you upgrade. For those with older iPads with an A9X processor or slower, this is a worthy upgrade.

    Bought this for my elderly mom, so I took responsibility for setting it up. As my moniker indicates, I consider myself a tech buff. It took me a full day to drop old habits related to the removal of the home button and the conversion of the power button to a Siri button. Old habits/patterns die hard. I knew this would present challenges for my mom, but I had no idea how many! After a week she can use Siri to play music or open a game, but the series of swipes for other things have her quite lost. Doesn't help any that I am in Mississippi and she is in Pennsylvania. Facetime helps alittle, but I don't have a similar iPad to demonstrate on. Having said that, she loves the sound quality and vast array of music with the 3 month trial of Apple Music as well as the stellar screen. Battery life is great; she can use it unplugged all day long for music and games. Solid new iPad that should meet her needs for years to come.

    I’ve had a iPad and iPad mini and liked both. This iPad Pro is larger which is okay, just makes it harder to type. The set up was the worst. I set it up through the apple cloud and that went fine. After that was entering google account passwords. It’s kept popping up the settings or cancel white box but wouldn’t let me select either. I have 8 accounts and it was like watching the iPad have a seizure. I erased it and started over again, did that 5 times. Called apple, got disconnected and they didn’t bother to call back. Erased it again and just sat there watching it’s seizures until it finally let me enter my passwords. Spent hours doing this on and off because it was so frustrating. I wish I’d not bought it and waited for the mini pro to come out. Oh well, stuck now. My advice, wait for the mini pro unless you want a big big iPad.

    Definitely worth the wait - blazing fast speed and very easy to set up, too. Face ID took all of 30 seconds. Added Apple Care for this purchase due to the device cost. Excellent screen & sound! Have streamed a few movies and very pleased with the experience. Ordered the folio case & pencil after 2 weeks of use. Bought a good ESR case from Amazon until then. Still not enough protection if dropped. The device is so new that case selection is quite limited. Early cases have a poor fit that make removing the iPad quite frustrating. No Otterbox yet or anything comparable but they will eventually come. Until then, just enjoying the new 11 inch Pro. On a budget? Get the regular iPad with pencil & spend up for more storage.

    This is the latest iPad Pro for 2018. If you're reading this before November 2019, then this is probably the latest model and absolutely the tablet you should buy. Once the new model comes out, forget this one. Compared to the previous iPad Pro, this one has a larger and brighter display, plus a faster CPU and graphics processor. It also adds FaceID security, which can be good or bad. You can't cover the sensor and you can't share your device as easily, but it will ensure you have one of the most secure devices on the market. Purchasing a previous 9.7" or 10.5" iPad Pro might seem attractive, but just to save a few $$ and have it not last as long? Probably not worth it. The only reason to not purchase this device is is if you want more storage, large screen or cell connection. In that case, go find another iPad Pro.

    The iPad Air to in my Pinyan was one of the best iPads ever made, that was until now. The iPad Air 2 is a great iPad that we still have an use in my family. The display, the weight and everything else about it is fantastic. But the new iPad Pro is amazing. The display is superior, the size is fantastic and its power and response is all I would expect. In my humble opinion I wouldn’t bother with the low-end iPads. Don’t get me wrong it’s an iPad on a budget. But it’s not everything you’ve come to expect from an iPad if you’ve had one in the past. The new iPad Pro is the way to go. As far as the bending of it… Keep it in a case, be mindful of it and be mindful of itand you’ll be fine

    decision between getting a new laptop or this ipad 11 pro. decided this fit better than a 13" laptop. works about 95% of the time for websites but still have to use the old laptop for those websites that dont render correctly on the ipad/safari. spouse uses it mostly to play games and do surfing which is a better fit for comfort than a 13" laptop. went with the 11 pro instead of the 12.9 pro as the size for the 12.9 was a tad to big for general use. younger kid has a 12.9 and it perfect for her with an apple pen for when she draws or does touchup work on photos. bought an isignia pen instead the apple 2nd gen pen due to cost. the insignia pen works great for just general touch inputs but if you need fine grain control get the new ipad apple pen instead.

    This 11" iPad Pro form factor, screen brightness and size is excellent. The squared edge is not as finger friendly and with a case the Pro is quite thick and heavy, but it allows for excellent speakers that compare well to desktop computer sound quality. The Pro's power and wireless capability are exceptional. Face ID and related swiping is not as helpful on an iPad as vs an iPhone. Apple has not introduced the Face ID 3D capabilities to augmented reality and in-the-air motion controls of apps for some reason, even though this Microsoft origin'ed technology was created for that. Looking forward to the USB-C benefits and turning this into my second computer.

    I was unsure I would find the new iPad with its changes that impressive. I also got an Apple Pencil, which I likewise thought I would probably regret because I wouldn't end up using it. I was wrong on both counts. The iPad is powerful and coupled with the keyboard, I'm almost ready to ditch my laptop. Almost, but not quite. However, I use the iPad a lot. I also use the Apple Pencil a lot. It feels good in my hand, and I use it to tap my way around the screen—less finger smudges. But really, I do use it to make notes and markup documents. I've signed PDF documents, too, and it was so easy. It felt too easy, like I expected there should be some ridiculous complication involved, but nope. Very happy with the new iPad.

    Initially loved it when I first got it. The build was great, thescreen was beautiful, and the UI was snappy. Unfortunately the artificially crafted limitations of iOS sours the user experience. I couldn't choose default apps, I couldn't move apps to wherever I wanted on the home screen, and YouTube is limited to only 1080p on this gigantic and beautiful screen. There were plenty of devices that wouldn't work through the USB C port. I ended up returning the iPad because at this price point I don't expect to be so restricted.
