    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!

    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.

    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.

    Thumbs Up for Apple

    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.

    IPad Pro 11”

    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.

    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.

    Best iPad since Air 2

    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.

    Loving everything about this iPad. Screen, design, performance, ect. iPad handles everything I use it for (games, movies, video editing, ect) . I previously had the 10.5 inch iPad Pro and I must say that it’s definitely worth the upgrade. I was reluctant to buy this iPad at first because of all the bending issues that’s been going on, but let me just say that it does not bend. It feels solid and doesn’t feel like it’s going to bend. I also purchased the Apple Pencil to take notes and to doodle. Feels like I’m writing on a piece of paper. I can’t say anything negative about this iPad. There are no cons.

    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.

    This was a long overdue upgrade from an iPad Air 2. Wanted an iPad that would be powerful enough to be future proof for several years as we like to hold onto our devices until they can no longer function adequately. Also wanted a machine that would allow me to use a variety of note-taking, drawing and other productivity/creativity apps. Coupled with the new Apple Pencil, this iPad does all of this for me. The responsiveness of the screen and apps is outstanding. If you are person who just watches videos, surfs the internet, plays some games, uses social media and email, then this iPad is overkill. But if you have interest in more Pro level applications, this iPad is great.

    I used to think the commercials were a gimmick. I now see that there is a good amount of truth to the claim that this is better than a computer. Being one who doesn’t require an actual computer for 99.9% of my personal life, this thing has taken what my iMac can do to the next level. My favorite thing is scanning with the camera, friggin genius! I bought the Logitech slim pro keyboard case and it’s wonderful. Better than I could have imagined, and I got this thing for $650 on sale! Also, if you didn’t know, Best Buy price matches Amazon...how did I not know this!?

    This iPad Pro is a great follow up to the original Pro. Lightning fast, no lag on multi-tasking, and a beautiful screen. Implementing Face ID shrinks the bezel to give you a gorgeous screen to work with! Even with all of these improvements, it’s still not a laptop replacement. Split screen is improved and using the keyboard is seamless, it’s still not going to match the true multitasking ability of a laptop. Also it’s odd typing on the keyboard but needing to use the touchscreen on the iPad to select text boxes. All in all, a great iPad but definitely not a replacement for your laptop.

    I was never never interested in buying an iPad before. Due to work and personal education I felt I needed something a little more versatile than a laptop and my phone so I decided to go for it and get a tablet and opted for the iPad. So far I am not disappointed and am loving it. One minor grudge I have with it is that the screen is a finger print magnet and is pretty annoying to have to constantly clean. Make sure to get a good glass screen protector to protect the screen as well as getting rid of this problem completely.

    Apple did say that this is the best iPad, I have to say I agree! great upgrade from iPad Pro 9.7 to 11. The screen looks greats! Very responsive to the Apple Pencil (2nd) generation. Very loud and clear sound. Good: Great screen, size, sound, able to charge your phone with the iPad ( USB C cord sold separately) very nice clear frontal camera ( Better than MacBook Air 2018), Face Bad: no Split keyboard (software), Face ID tends to fail more than I would like to. Overall: Really great, portable and fast! If you don't want a PC or a Mac then this is the right choice.
