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.
80% iPad Pro (10.5-inch) review: Dazzles and delights in equal measure, if you can get past the price
Source: Gadget Show English
To sum up, it is hard to pinpoint anything wrong with the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. It is stylish, powerful and a delight to use - be it watching videos or any other media. The rollout of iOS 11 in September will further boost the tablet's productivity features and enhance its appeal as productivity machine for business travellers on the go. The tablet is surely a good upgrade over its predecessor and offers some top-end specifications vis-a-vis its rivals.

90% iPad Pro 2017 review: Apple's new tablets are amazing for artists, less so for designers and others
Source: Digital Arts English
The iPad Pro is an incredible creative tool. For artists and illustrators who want a portable drawing and painting device, it’s more than a match for the Microsoft Surface Pro or Wacom MobileStudio Pro (unless you prefer the extra three-inches of screen that you get from the 16-inch Wacom).

Source: Hardware Zone English
What Apple has done with the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is that they have taken a tablet that is already without any peers, and made it even better. The display is wonderful and its performance is brilliant. And it is quite remarkable how they have managed to fit a bigger display without increasing its size and weight.

If you feel that a larger screen would add an extra dimension of productivity to your tablet-using experience, do think about dropping the extra $150 on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. But if you all you want is a really well-rounded tablet that delivers one of the best overall experiences we've seen from a mobile device in a long while, you won't go wrong with the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

The iPad Pro 10.5-inch is the best tablet I have ever used, but the mass of high-end features leave it with a price-tag that might be hard to stomach. It’s £120 more expensive than the 9.7-inch model was last year – granted, you do get double the base-storage – and it’s double the price of the basic iPad 9.7-inch, which will offer enough power and features for the vast majority of people.

85% Apple iPad Pro Review: A superb tablet waiting for its time to shine
Source: Zdnet.com English
Is the iPad Pro enough to replace a computer, as Apple and so many pundits (yours truly included) love to claim? Yes, it is for a lot of people, even with iOS 10. However, that's a narrative that should be put on hold for a little bit longer while Apple's vision for its tablet comes full circle. Or, as ZDNet's Ross Rubin puts it, as Apple's iPad line grows up.

The iPad Pro can cost more than Apple's entry-level MacBook Air, and in many configurations, as much as a MacBook Pro or a Surface Laptop. It's no media-consumption device. It's for editing spreadsheets, reshaping photos, or cutting 4K video. In the future, it is going to be for augmented reality. I understand the power here, although I can't say it works for me just yet.

90% iPad Pro 10.5 Review (2017): Half the laptop-replacement story
Source: Slashgear English
In short, for most people this needs to be your everyday machine if it’s to make financial sense. Apple is clearly targeting photo and video pros on the one hand, who will find new apps like Affinity Photo that put the A10X Fusion’s potency to work; the others will presumably be the same document editing, email triaging, web browsing users who don’t want the hassle or complexity of a Windows 10 or macOS machine. For the latter cohort, the iPad Pro 10.5’s power and price are probably overkill, but I wouldn’t blame you for succumbing to its charms when you see the ProMotion display.

This is only a final review in that you can buy the 10.5-inch iPad Pro in the form described here – but we need iOS 11 to land before we can truly work out if this is a great tablet. It offers great audio and video playback... but we need to assess the potential laptop-beating capabilities the new software will offer.

Auf der Habenseite stehen das Display mit seiner hohen Bildwiederholungsrate und der schnelle Prozessor. Wichtige Softwarefunktionen erhält das neue Apple-Tablet allerdings erst im Herbst mit iOS 11. In der Praxis bietet das größere Display zudem nur einen geringen Mehrwert. Das Anfang Juni auf der WWDC vorgestellte neue iPad Pro mit 10,5-Zoll-Display hat in ersten Tests gute Noten erhalten.

The iPad Pro is the best tablet ever, but at a time the entire market is on the decline, that seems like faint praise. But this is much more than a tablet, because the sheer speed offered by the A10X chip -- coupled with high-quality apps -- enables creative pros to do things that used to require a laptop. I also appreciate the nearly 14 hours of battery life, innovative ProMotion display and iPhone-caliber cameras.

No matter how you slice it, $649 is a lot of money to drop on an iPad. In return, however, you get one of the most powerful tablets around. Most people like the idea of a second screen for occasional web browsing on the couch when they can't be bothered to move to a computer or dig a phone out of their pocket. If that's you, just forget it: The iPad Pro 10.5 is total overkill.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro is arguably Apple's best iPad yet. Coupled with the Smart Keyboard, the Pro is a capable, powerful and impressive looking device. Unfortunately, however, many of the issues that plagued the original Pro remain in this second-generation 10.5-inch iteration, with iOS' limitations as an operating system remaining the most glaring problem.

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.

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.

There are tons of reviews on Apple laptops, smartphones and tablets. The ratings are significantly above-average (as of 2016).


90.19%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
