89.3% Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2020) Review: Fine-tuning the Flagship | Notebookcheck
Even though the iPad Pro 12.9 (2020) is cheaper than its predecessor, it comes with superior hardware. For example, Apple has equipped its tablet for professional users with a stronger SoC as well as a new 12-MP camera with a LiDAR sensor. The device is still holding on to the claim of being able to fully replace a traditional laptop.
100% Apple iPad Pro 12.9in (2020) review: Believe the hype
Source: It Pro English
We’ve followed the iPad Pro since its launch some four years ago, buying each new model as they came along. With the 2020 version, there are significant changes to the platform. The big question, however, is whether it’s worth it: is this a good inflection point for an upgrade, and does it deliver sufficient capability and value for money? In short, should the new iPad Pro be on your Lidar?

Apple iPad Pro (2020) review: Still the best tablet
Source: Android Authority English
The Apple iPad Pro (12.9) is a fantastic machine. It may be a bit unwieldy as a lap-based slate, but it takes on a life of its own when paired with a keyboard and other input accessories. The costly tablet easily outshines Android-based offerings and does a fine job of competing with Microsoft's Surface Pro. If you can afford the iPad Pro, it's the tablet to beat.

Apple iPad Pro (12.9-inch) Review |The King of Tablets is Back
Source: Exhibit.tech English
The iPad Pro is a premium tablet for sure as the 11-inch iPad Pro starts at Rs 71,900 for the Wi-Fi model and Rs 85,900 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model, and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at Rs 89,900 for the Wi-Fi model and Rs 1,03,900 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model. But if you are in the market looking for a tablet that will last you long, cater to your everyday needs, and has mobility by its side, the iPad Pro is the closest thing, according to us, that can replace your laptop for sure.

90% iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2020 review: Who needs a laptop?
Source: The Indian Express English
So the iPad Pro is for everyone on the move but needs unfettered access to computing power and convenience. The raw processing power, especially with video and photo editing tools along with the power to sketch also makes this a natural choice for creative professionals. If you are looking for a tablet to watch movies and write emails on, then there are cheaper iPads out there. This iPad Pro is clearly replacing a high-end laptop and that should be what you are comparing this with.

Apple iPad Pro 2020 review
Source: Digital Arts English
The same is true for the iPad Pro – the only reason I’d choose the Surface Pro over the iPad Pro is that many design, video and animation applications either don’t exist on the iPad (Adobe XD and InDesign) or exist in cut-down forms (Premiere Rush). The iPadOS’s clunky approach to files, folders and especially moving files between apps is one of the few areas where Windows does it better – and working with third-party online storage whether Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive can be a right pain.

Apple iPad Pro (2020) review: Is it a notebook killer?
Source: Hardware Zone English
The flip-side to this is that if you grew up on iPhones and iPads, then maybe iPadOS will come naturally to you. And, of course, there are some things it can do a lot better than Macs can, like signing, scanning, and making quick edits on documents, taking handwritten notes, and more. If you are comfortable with iPadOS, then there’s no better mobile device than the iPad Pro. But having said that, this new model is only a minor update to the one it replaces. Because other than the lidar scanner, the two are practically identical. If you already own the iPad Pro from late 2018, I’ll advise you to sit this one out unless you think the lidar scanner will be a game-changer for you.

What hasn’t changed in two years is nothing else on the market comes close. And although that quality comes at a price — even more so if you factor in a 300-quid keyboard accessory — the iPad Pro remains the best tablet around.

Apple’s new 12.9in iPad Pro is among the most powerful on the market right now, with the new A12Z chipset beating just about every competitor in benchmark tests, but it’s also one of the most expensive options in our chart. The huge 120Hz 12.9in display is great for graphics design, watching movies and browsing social media, but it’s not until you pair it with the Magic Keyboard that the potential becomes clear.

90% iPad Pro (2020) review: A modest improvement on a great tablet
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
This is the best iPad Apple has ever made, and peripherals like the new Magic Keyboard make Apple’s tablet more appealing as a work machine. The fact remains, though, that unless you’re heavily involved in video editing or professional artwork, most people will be served just fine with the $499 iPad Air—although it currently doesn’t come with that spiffy keyboard. If you do need the power of a Pro, though, it’s still worth considering getting the 2018 model. On the low end, at least, you’ll almost certainly be able to find one for a lower price, and Apple’s new Magic Keyboard is even compatible with it.

There’s no question this technology is clever, but I consider it a nice-to-have feature. It is far from essential as things stand right now. That could all change with the arrival of new applications that make use of it. Nothing springs to mind, but if it did I’d be a wealthy software entrepreneur not a journalist.

Here’s the thing, though. Just as when you’ve lived with an electric car it can be hard to go back to old-school gasoline, so getting a taste of the iPad Pro mobile life can make laptop shortcomings glaringly clear. For an increasingly large number of people, Apple’s tablet isn’t just an alternative to a traditional laptop, it’s better than one. That’s abundantly clear with the 2020 iPad Pro.

Apple's 2020 iPad Pro has received a total of 7 changes compared to the 2018 iPad Pro. We go through the significance of each change based on my own personal opinion. We also go through why these changes matter in terms of Apple's master plan. We then take a look at why Apple would release this updated 2020 iPad Pro when there are rumors of Apple making a much better A14X-packing Mini-LED display iPad Pro later this year. And finally.. we reveal what we think Apple's master plan is and what product they actually want you to buy the most.

Hands-on with the iPad Pro's first trackpad keyboard case

I've settled for using the Brydge case with Apple's Magic Trackpad sitting by the side as a solution for now -- which isn't ideal, but it's more than I had a month ago. But again, considering how early out of the gate Brydge's iPad keyboard solution is, odds are that future trackpad/keyboard solutions (including Brydge's) will be more polished.

2020 iPad Pro Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the 2020 refresh of the Apple iPad Pro, available in 11” and 12.9” sizes. The design is unchanged from the previous gen models, other than the square camera cluster on the back, which now houses 2 cameras instead of 1 plus a LIDAR sensor for improved AR. The iPads run iOS 13 on the Apple A12Z Bionic CPU with 6GB RAM. Base storage is doubled to 128GB, and you can get it with up to 1TB storage. As ever, there’s a cellular option, a USB-C port that supports monitors, SD card readers and more. Both have 120Hz True Motion IPS Retina displays, support the Apple Pencil 2 and are compatible with the existing Keyboard Folio and the upcoming Magic Keyboard with trackpad.

Source: Engadget English
The 2020 iPad Pro is a terrific tablet that, thanks to features like trackpad support and some under-the-hood tweaks, comes closer than ever to feeling like a traditional computer. It doesn't quite get there because of some inherent iPadOS limitations, but there's enough performance and flexibility here that I've largely been able to leave my laptop to the side. Apart from its new ultra-wide camera and LiDAR sensor, though, the hardware hasn't changed much compared to the 2018 model. Because of that, this year's iPad Pro is a great starting point for people who want a more premium tablet experience, but existing Pro owners shouldn't feel like they’re missing out.

As I used the iPad Pro this week, I kept coming back to that LIDAR sensor. Not to use but as a concept. It’s a powerful and interesting sensor and Apple’s total control over software and hardware means that it “just works” to improve existing apps. But as powerful as it is, I’m not super sure a lot of users will be able to take advantage of it — it’s an extra thing they may not even use.

Comment

Model:

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 has been considered as one of the most beautiful iPads to date as compared to its predecessors since 2010. Some even stated that after a long eight years, Apple has finally decided to revise its quite fairly boring designs which has been released earlier. The reason for this statement has to be due to the physical presentation of iPad Pro 12.9. It is practically all screen in which the home button has been removed and replaced with uniform bezels around the edges. Apart from that, the thin and squared-off aluminum body of this model will definitely remind users of the gorgeous and scintillating design of iPhone 4. This model incorporates a 12.9 inches screen size which is 15 percent thinner and 25 percent less volume as compared to the largest iPad Pro of the older version, despite having the same screen size. Even though iPad Pro 12.9 might feel slightly massive in the hand but its lightweight definitely makes it manageable. Therefore, it is obviously undeniable to mention that this model creates a fantastic canvas for watching movies or even drawing. This goes back to increasing user productivity and overall improving user experience. However, Apple stated that the headphone jack in this version had to be removed in order to reduce the thickness of the iPad Pro.

As far as the resolution is concerned, this model provides a 2732 x 2048 resolution along with the Liquid Retina LCD technology which is similar to iPhone XR. The ProMotion technology delivers a screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz which definitely creates an incredibly smooth scrolling experience for the users while using the iPad and catering for a more responsive user experience. The most interesting feature of this iPad Pro has to be the much-improved Apple Pencil. Despite not being the best tool to navigate the operating system, this Apple Pencil was intentionally catered for those who preferred writing handwritten notes or even buying. The added magnet on the top of the iPad creates a safe place for the pencil to fit itself in and even gets charged wirelessly. Again, catering for an expensive user experience. Another applaudable factor within iPad Pro 12.9 is the incorporation of the Type-C USB port. It should be noted that this model is the first tablet from Apple to have included this port type. This port can allow the users to connect to two external monitors to be used with this tablet. This port also surprisingly supports Ethernet jack which caters for uploading and downloading large files. However, iPad Pro does not provide mouse support. The A12 Bionic processor which was found in iPhone XS and XR has also been incorporated within this model which has no problem powering the latest games and also performs intensive tasks such as editing in Photoshop and Lightroom. The battery is said to last all day after fully charged which again improves the overall user experience. Overall, this iPad does have its plus point but the choice of owning it depends entirely on individual needs and interest.

Apple A12Z Bionic GPU: Integrated graphics card offering 8 cores designed by Apple and integrated in the A12Z Bionic SoC. Compared to the A12X Bionic in the iPad Pro 2018 models (7 cores) and A12 Bionic (iPhone XS series) it should offer the same architecture with more cores.

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.


A12Z Bionic: System on a Chip (SoC) from Apple that integrates a processor (eight 64 Bit cores, 4 performance and 4 power saving cores). It should be similar to the older Apple A12X SoC but offers 1 GPU core more and maybe faster clock rates.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.9":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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 weight is typical for small tablets.


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).


89.01%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
