91.1% Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2021 tablet review - A Mini LED trump card? | Notebookcheck
Apple packs everything technically possible into its large 5th generation iPad Pro: A state-of-the-art Mini LED display, an Apple M1 SoC, which has already made Intel fearful in the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro 13, and at least 8 GB of RAM. The whole thing is combined with a tablet operating system that Apple actually optimised for children - wait a minute. More about this in our review.
80% M1 Apple iPad Pro (2021) review: A display of brilliance
Source: Expert Reviews English
Putting that aside for one moment, however, it’s quite clear that the iPad Pro 12.9in is a fabulous piece of hardware and categorically the best tablet you can buy. It’s as powerful as the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, it has great battery life for a device this compact and the new Mini-LED display tech puts it in a different league. In many ways it’s as good as, if not better than, a traditional laptop. However, it’s being held back by silly restrictions like the inability to make full use of a second display and its eye-watering price. If you buy both the tablet and keyboard, it’s considerably more expensive than the equivalent Apple MacBook Air, although the iPad admittedly has a touchscreen and a far nicer display. This is the dilemma that Apple must contend with now that it has brought the iPad to full parity with its laptop and desktop machines. It’s fabulous hardware, no doubt, but it’s being held back from true greatness by the limitations of its software.

iPad Pro 12.9 inch (2021 M1 chip) review: Trying to imitate Surface, but limited by software
Source: On MSFT English
I got an iPad Pro to see if it can replace my Surface and my computer. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. While it's an excellent device, iPad OS holds back the full potential of the iPad Pro, and even the potential of the M1 chip inside. You can buy one if you want to change the way you work and switch over to using mobile-first apps but be prepared for missing features. Trust me when I say it, as much as Apple wants the iPad to be a Surface replacement, it can not. The iPad will always be a tablet and not your main computer.

Yes, if you are looking for a device that lets you work from home as well as office and when you go for a staycation in the hills. Also, a great upgrade for those on earlier generation iPads that are at least two years old. For those thinking of a device that is not as heavy or large as a laptop but can still do everything they want to, this is an easy pick. And yes, the creative people among us now get a device that has the power to execute everything their imagination comes up with.

90% Apple iPad Pro 2021 review (12.9in, M1)
Source: Tech Advisor English
The 2021 iPad Pro 12.9 is hard to fault. It really is an impressive device, though arguably overkill for most people. Pair it with a Magic Keyboard (read our 2020 iPad Pro 12.9 review for more details) and it goes a very long way to replacing a laptop - especially if you don’t need to use obscure software that will only run on a Mac or PC. But it will almost certainly cost more than even a high-end laptop - even a MacBook Pro 13 - so you've really got to want and utilise the tablet design and touchscreen here. Multitasking is about to get better in iPadOS 15, and more apps will surely begin to really exploit the incredible performance on offer. But even right now, if you can justify the high cost, it’s simply the best tablet money can buy.

100% Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) review
Source: What Hi-Fi English
Apple’s Pro tablets have, as the name suggests, always been aimed at professional, creative types, and they will be delighted by the huge power brought to the new models by the M1 chip. Our focus is on the picture and sound, though, and the iPad Pro 12.9 is at least as exciting here. The picture performance is superb – punchy and deep, vibrant and natural, exciting and nuanced. It's right up there with that of the very best TVs you can buy. Sound, meanwhile, is great from the speakers, excellent via standard Bluetooth or wired headphones, and simply amazing with a pair of AirPods Max cans. This is a hugely expensive tablet and the price is hard to justify for anyone who has no intention of taking advantage of its productivity potential, but it’s also the best tablet you can buy for watching movies on the move. Sure, this is a luxury device, but it’s an extremely persuasive one.

80% Apple iPad Pro 12.9in (Apple M1, 2021) review: Falls just short of greatness
Source: It Pro English
The price dictates this approach as much as anything else and the iPad Pro sits firmly in premium laptop territory. Prices start at £999 for the 12.9in Wi-Fi model with 128GB of storage; the Smart Keyboard Folio adds a further £199 while the Magic Keyboard with touchpad adds £329. That brings the price of the 12.9in iPad pro up to £1,328 if you want the full laptop alternative experience. In many ways, it’s as good as a traditional laptop - if not better. However, it’s being held back by silly restrictions like the inability to make full use of a second display and its eye-watering price. If you buy both the tablet and keyboard, it’s considerably more expensive than the equivalent Apple MacBook Air, although the iPad does, admittedly, have a touchscreen and a far nicer display. This is the dilemma that Apple must contend with now that it has brought the iPad to full parity with its laptop and desktop machines.

70% Apple iPad Pro (12.9-Inch, 2021)
Source: PC Mag English
The new iPad Pro is too good for its operating system. An absolute hardware tour de force, this $1,099, 12.9-inch tablet is gorgeously built, with power to match the latest Apple laptops, the finest screen we've ever seen on a slate, and connectivity options that the latest MacBooks can't touch. But iPadOS can't take advantage of the new power under the hood, which means the $599-and-up iPad Air is still our Editors' Choice winner for Apple tablets.

What you're probably wondering is whether it makes sense for you to spend four figures on a tablet, when you could buy an iPad Air for $599 or a MacBook Pro for about as much as the iPad Pro. My answer to most people is an emphatic "no." If you want a premium tablet and a smaller screen isn't a deal-breaker, save your money and get the iPad Air which shares the most important features with its pricier sibling. The iPad Pro 2021 is for the same crowd as the previous models: those without a budget who want the absolute best tablet on the market, as well as professionals and enthusiasts using intensive apps for content creation or editing. Unless Apple changes direction and turns the iPad Pro into a true laptop replacement, the market for this tablet will remain limited.

Source: Hardware Zone English
Ultimately, Apple’s latest iPad Pro feels like a flex. It’s a showcase of the versatility of the M1 chip – how it can power desktops, notebooks, and even tablets that are just 6.4mm thick. And as fantastic as this new iPad Pro is, the Mac user in me cannot help but be excited for Macs. If Apple can get its M1 chip to run so fluidly in a form factor that’s this compact think about the possibilities for Macs. This new iPad Pro is great but it's a sign that the future of Macs could be even greater.

Apple iPad Pro (2021) vs iPad Pro (2020): review
Source: Phone Arena English
For those of you that bought themselves a Magic Keyboard and an Apple Pencil 2, you will be happy to know that the iPad Pro (2021) will support them fully. You can still use the trackpad as a mouse pointer, the Pencil 2 still attaches magnetically and charges from the iPad. The iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) specifically will be a bit tighter fit in an older version of the Magic Keyboard — that's because the new tablet is 0.5 mm thicker than last year's edition. Not a huge deal (not as huge as it was made on Twitter), but I would still be cautious about the keys leaving marks on the iPad's screen due to the tight fit (ahem, MacBook Pro...). There were no new accessories announced, but it's worth mentioning that — yes — the iPad Pro (2021) comes with a USB Type-C port.

Source: Phone Arena English
The Galaxy Tab S7+ is a good choice if your priority is having a nice display or a free stylus, and you don't mind switching to Android. It is still among the best Android tablets out there, with its beautiful 12.4-inch AMOLED display, similarly smooth 120Hz refresh rate and excellent performance. It is also a more appropriate tablet for watching movies, as it's a wider-screen one, while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is taller and better for productivity. If you want a more affordable, but still modern iPad instead, there's nothing better than the 2020 iPad Air 4. It only has an 11-inch variant and isn't nearly as powerful, but iPadOS 14 flies on it regardless. Slightly thicker bezels, no Face ID (has Touch ID instead), not as impressive a display, but it's still arguably the greatest midrange tablet to get right now.

Apple's new iPad Pro borrows the M1 chip from it's new iMacs and MacBook Pros, and the has a mini-LED based on the pro XDR display. That's a lot of features to pack into a tablet, and it let's you use the iPad Pro for some serious work, especially when it comes to photos and videos. But All that hardware comes with a heck of a cost, as much as $2,500 with accessories, and all that hardware prowess feels hampered by iOS, which is still not a desktop-class operating system.

Just when you were wondering what Apple could possibly do to improve the already excellent iPad Pro we see the company’s M1 processor has been added to the latest models to make them even more powerful and convenient. An iPad Pro customer is usually someone pretty savvy who want to get a lot of work done on the move and be creative and collaborative at any moment when inspiration strikes. And it’s different proposition to using a MacBook because the iPad Pro offers a hand-on touchscreen experience so it’s not a case of being a laptop replacement but a laptop alternative.

Apple M1 8-Core GPU: Integrated graphics card offering 8 cores (depending on the model) designed by Apple and integrated in the Apple M1 SoC. According to Apple faster and more energy efficient as competing products (like the Tiger Lake Xe GPU).

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).


88.39%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
