Reviews for the Apple iPad Pro 10.5 2017

92.2% Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
A great tablet, but not a pro. The iPad Pro 10.5 is Apple's second generation of the Pro-series. The screen is definitely the star of the show. It has not only grown in size, but it also offers 120 Hz, HDR and claims coverage of the P3 color space. The tablet is on its way to the top with the A10X SoC, but it will still not be a satisfying notebook replacement.

An extensive revamp combined with the loss of the 9.7in model undoubtedly gives Apple's iPad family range greater clarity. While the standard iPad will be enough for most, the Pro line is there to appeal to those that crave the extra power and screen estate and don't mind paying for it.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 (2017) hands-on review

The new Dock is clearly the most macOS-inspired new part of iOS 11, and underlines just how neatly Apple is streamlining its overall OS experience. iOS and macOS are increasingly borrowing the best of the other’s features, and for the iPad that's a really a good thing.

iPad Pro 2: Everything we know so far about the next edition of Apple's iconic tablet
Source: CNet English
Apple is reportedly working on a more-powerful processor for the iPad Pro 2. According to Dutch tech blog Techtastic, this new chip would be the successor to the A9X that comes with both versions of the iPad Pro. If that's accurate, a beefed-up version of the A10 that currently powers the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, presumably called the A10X, would be featured in the next iPad Pro models. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has posited that Apple might reuse the A9X for a new, less-expensive iPad model.

Imagination A10X Fusion GPU: The Apple A10X Fusion / PowerVR graphics card is integrated in the Apple A10X Fusion SoC (benchmarks and specs) that can be found in the Apple iPad Pro from 2017. Most likely based on PowerVR technology. According to Apple it integrates 12 cores (compared to the 6 cores of the A10 GPU) and is therefore significantly faster. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
A10X Fusion: The Apple A10X Fusion is a system on a chip (SoC) from Apple that is built into the 2017 iPad Pro models. It integrates six 64 Bit cores that are divided in two clusters. Three high performance cores are clocked at up to 2.39 GHz. The three power saving cores are used for non demanding tasks. It looks like only one of both clusters is able to run at a time (therefore the apps see only three cores). The principle is similar to the first generation of ARMs big.LITTLE concept.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
10.5":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Apple: Apple Inc. is an American multinational corporation which designs and manufactures consumer electronics and software products. Apple software includes the Mac OS X operating system but nowadays Macbooks are also able to run Windows. Apple has at least sporadically been considered the most valuable company in the world since 2011 and has consistently ranked among the Top 10 companies in the world.

In the laptop sector, Apple's market share was 9.3% in 2014 and 10.3% in 2016. The latter corresponds to the 5th place. In the smartphone segment, Apple achieved 15.3% in the first quarter of 2016, which means a market share loss when compared to the 18.3% in same quarter of the previous year.
Nevertheless, Apple ranked second place behind Samsung in both years.
