85% Apple iPad Pro (M4) review: For better or worse, it's the ultimate expression of the iPad
Source: Hardware Zone English
To say that the new iPad Pro is a spec bump would be a mistake. It may look similar to the model it replaces and the updates may sound trivial on paper, but it brings Apple’s most advanced tablet closer to the company’s dream of building “a magical sheet of glass” that can be anything that its users want. There’s no question that this is now the best iPad the company makes and that it is the iPad to have for hardcore iPad users. But does it change anything for everyone else?

90% iPad Pro (2024) review: Portable power and promise at an impractical price
Source: Android Police English
When Apple announced the iPad Pro 11, it piqued my interest. I’ve always been a fan of the bigger iPad Pro, but despite having an M2 processor in the last generation, I found the trade-offs too much. These were mainly the weight, ergonomics, lack of Pro features in iPad OS, and the weight of the Magic Keyboard, which made the iPad too heavy overall. Almost all of these are now fixed, and the iPad Pro (2024) is the best tablet I’ve ever used. The vastly reduced weight of the iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard make it an absolute joy to use. I’ve found that the 13-inch is better for my needs than the 11-inch, which can feel cramped, but there’s nuance to that decision.

90% iPad Pro 2024 Review: Thinnest iPad Ever Ready to Rule the World
Source: Nextpit EN English
So which model should you buy if you want an Apple tablet? If you are looking for a tablet for the toilet, couch, and bed, as well as for simple work, then I highly recommend the normal iPad. If you want a powerful iPad that's like an extended, mobile workbench for your normal workplace when you're traveling, then the iPad Air is perfect. If you are a photographer, content creator, or videographer, then the iPad Pro is the ideal choice. Only one thing, though. In the end, the iPad Pro feels so cool that I personally would have let my gut and not my head decide in the end. Not cool at all! If we were to bump into each other on the train at some point, don't be surprised to see an iPad Pro in front of me!

80% Apple iPad Pro (M4, 2024) review: is there such a thing as too powerful?
Source: Creative Bloq English
Another amazing piece of creative hardware from Apple. If you aren’t a professional creative or power user then this is overkill in most cases. Aesthetically this is the best option you can get at 5.1mm thick, glare free glass, Apple Pencil Pro ready and seriously powerful in both GPU and CPU terms. It’s only a good upgrade option if you are on the Pre M chip iPad with lower than 6GB of RAM but then you will feel that upgrade in your packet. If you don’t need to use a pencil then consider a MacBook Air and if you do need a pencil see if the M2 iPad Air will work for you first.

90% Apple iPad Pro review: Redefining the word Pro
Source: The Indian Express English
Apple iPad Pro Review: I have for years now been using the iPad and the iPad Pro as my primary computers, especially during travel. However, since the pandemic took away the office computer from my life I started using my MacBook for everything and there was no travel to lean back on the iPad. Also, as my profile changed, the spreadsheet became a prominent part of my work, which became a struggle to handle on the iPad even with a larger screen. Now with the iPad Pro M4, I want to figure out if an iPad can once again become my primary driver, given that it has unprecedented power inside for a tablet, a new Magic Keyboard with function keys, and the Apple Pencil Pro with new features.

90% Apple iPad Pro M4 2024 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Coming down on a firm verdict about the iPad Pro M4 is hard – it’s wonderful in many areas, yet lacking in others. It leaves Android tablets like the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra in the dust with its performance, and it has the best screen I have ever seen on an iPad. It’s glorious to use and wonderfully constructed to the point where I am still impressed at the hardware every single time I pick it up. No other piece of tech has made me feel this way in quite a long time, but – and it’s a big but – I am still not sure who this iPad Pro is for. The whole package, especially the 13-inch version, can hit £2000/$2000 before accessories are even considered. For the same price, you can get a MacBook Pro. For the £999/$999 base iPad Pro 11-inch, you could get a MacBook Air M3 – one of the very best laptops on the market.

90% iPad Pro (2024) review: the best tablet I’ve ever used
Source: Digital Trends English
The M4 iPad Pro is a polarizing device without any concept of a midpoint sweet spot from a value perspective. So, here’s the lowdown. The iPad Pro is expensive. Some might say deservedly so. I’ve been an ardent tablet user for nearly half a decade now, and I can confidently say no slate has ever justified its sticker price solely for its build quality more than the iPad Pro (2024). It’s loaded with more firepower than you can possibly touch the limits of. The hardware is second to none, and the battery life is also a pleasant surprise. The OLED screen is exceptionally good, and the speakers are a perfect multimedia companion. The redesigned Magic Keyboard is a cherry on top, albeit an expensive one. If you happen to be the target audience from a software standpoint, this machine will have you smiling each day.

90% iPad Pro M4 (2024) review: big, bad, but now thinner!
Source: Phone Arena English
iPad Pros are great — they run fast and smooth, their displays are awesome, and they can do... some stuff. They are definitely not laptop-like, so if you intend to be a "digital nomad" with one — take into consideration that an iPad still favors the "one app at a time" approach. This, combined with the price, puts a lot of people off. But if you will be drawing on it, doing text work and meetings on it, using it to binge YouTube and Netflix on the side, even incorporating it in audio or visual work — it can work as a great digital assistant throughout the day. This author has an iPad Pro that's pretty much on for about 4-8 hours each day, so it can definitely deliver a value through the years.

89% iPad Pro M4 Review: A super powerful beast tamed by iPadOs Limitations
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
So, overall, I truly believe iPad Pro and iPad OS need an “identity”. Except for this gorgeous screen, everything that an iPad Pro does, you can do more or less the same with the cheaper iPad Air. I feel sorry for the Apple engineers here – they are providing such top-class hardware, but the software is not living up to the expectations. However, If you are an artist, this is a great device to have. There are a lot of crazy good apps for your creative workflow. Or if you are someone like me, who travels a lot and wants a portable machine for multimedia, light editing, writing scripts, and taking Zoom meetings from this wide-angle front camera, you will love this device. Buttt…That’s a pretty small demographic of people. But since I fall in that demographic, I love it and got this over the iPad Air, whose display now feels so inferior!

This video reviews the nearly perfect hardware of the iPad Pro M4 and the flaws in iPadOS that bring it down. Despite superb performance, issues with iPadOS 17’s core apps, Stage Manager's poor multitasking, and the unreliable file manager, hinder professional use. While iPadOS 18 may bring improvements, these current limitations highlight challenges for the iPad Pro M4 in a pro workflow.

80% Apple iPad Pro M4 review: A scalpel for work where knife will not do
Source: India Today English
The iPad Pro M4 is special. And it is also meant for, I believe, users who have special use cases. If you want a tablet for your school children, the iPad Air is a perfectly reasonable option. In fact, for most use cases as a tablet the regular iPad remains the best value for money and the most sensible option for most people. Yet, the iPad Pro M4 is special. It is a work tool, if you have the work that needs its capabilities and feature set. For example, artists, sketchers, illustrators, musicians, filmmakers and so on and so forth may find it a life-changing tool. So, if you have that kind of work - or a workflow where you require the incredible combination of Pencil Pro, Tandem OLED screen and M4 performance - there is no better tool in the world than the iPad Pro M4.

Der er ingen tvivl. Apple iPad Pro 13 byder på det bedste hardware vi har set i en tablet til dato. Tastatur-coveret og pennen, der hører til, er også uden sidestykke. Når det alt sammen samtidig er uhyre lækkert forarbejdet og nydeligt designet, kan man endda tilgive, at Apple tager sig mere end rigtig godt betalt for sine sager. Alligevel ender indtrykket af Apples nye grej at være begrænset. Ikke af hardwaren eller formfaktoren – men af softwaren, som agerer som en form for guldbur, hvor åbne økosystemer som MacOS’ ikke får lov at trænge ind. Det er nu ærgerligt, for der er ingen tvivl om, at Apple iPad Pro 13 ellers er klodens bedste tablet.

Overall, it's our Editors' Choice winner for creatives who want a slim, light tablet that can handle practically anything. Just keep in mind that the iPad Air is more than sufficient if you stick to GarageBand, iMovie, and other lightweight creative apps.

iPad Pro 2024 First Look: The Thinnest Apple Product Ever with the Fastest Chip
Source: Nextpit EN English
In the end, my conclusion is that the iPad Pro feels like a MacBook, but for most people it won't feel like one when working. That's a question of habit. However, if you were to ask my daughter Mia, she would say the opposite. For four years, the iPad Pro has been her only computer, which she uses to do everything for school and A-levels. She doesn't miss anything, and I understand her. But others won't be able to do without a stationary computer or a laptop. Unfortunately, iPadOS is simply not made for that. Nevertheless, the iPad Pro has picked me up more this year than it has for a long time. It has become so pleasantly light and thin, and the new display in particular makes a huge difference. So what should you buy now if you want to buy an Apple tablet?

90% iPad Pro M4 Review (2024): More Power Than You'll Need, Less Than You Want
Source: Slashgear English
The M4 iPad Pro has its merit, and it's undeniably in a league of its own. The looks and feel are a definite standout. The OLED display is a stunner, and so is the Magic Keyboard, both aesthetically as well as functionally. Performance is blistering, as expected, and the battery life is surprisingly good, especially for a slate with a 13-inch OLED panel. From a hardware perspective, there is almost nothing meaningful to complain about Apple's latest flagship slate. Interestingly, the biggest undoing of this beautiful kit is Apple itself. The iPadOS experience is still frustratingly limiting and the sluggish pace at which it is evolving further shrinks any scope of bright hopes. The iPad's getting closer to a Mac all the time — unfortunate for power users, that also goes for configuration pricing and top-tier M4 action. And unless your workflow doesn't involve stylus-based work, the Magic Keyboard is an expensive must-have to extract any iota of computing needs from this slate. Is this the best tablet out there?

The OLED screen is nice, but the light weight of the M4 iPad Pro is the real game-changer. It means I use the 2024 version more than its predecessor. And, honestly, it makes my iPhone seem thick.

100% Apple iPad Pro 13-inch M4 review: a true MacBook replacement
Source: T3 English
The iPad Pro is so much more than just a tablet. This powerful machine can take on professional tasks with ease, it can work as a portable edit suite or graphics tablet, and it can provide gorgeous visuals. For the more casual user, the OLED display is incredible and means everything from movies and games, to photos and webpages, look simply stunning. While the screen is not a massive jump in quality from the previous iPad Pro, the extra brightness is noticeable. While iPadOS isn’t perfect, I could definitely see this being a valid replacement for my MacBook Pro. If I was travelling light, the lighter and thinner design makes it easy to keep in my bag and with the Magic Keyboard, it’s just as easy to work on. If you don’t need the power of the M4 chip, the new 13-inch iPad Air is also worth considering, though it still uses the old Magic Keyboard which isn’t quite as good. Ultimately, if you are searching for the best tablet on the market, the iPad Pro is that choice.

I was confident I would like the nano-texture iPad Pro because I nerd out over color consistency when editing photos and despise glare. However, I also expected that the tradeoffs would irritate me, too. I figured the scales would just barely tip in favor of the nano-texture glass, and if not, there’s always that 14-day return window. However, I was sold once I started using the new iPad Pro with Apple’s fancy etched glass. I really do love it, compromises and all.

90% Apple iPad Pro M4 review: So much to love if you can stomach the price
Source: Express English
There's simply no denying that the new iPad Pro remains the best tablet you can buy. The new slimline design is simply stunning, the M4 processor is ludicrously powerful and the upgraded OLED screen is a thing of absolute beauty. It's a total joy to use, especially with Apple fixing a number of issues found on the older models such as the front-facing camera placement and boost to the base-level storage. The Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard accessories are also improved and you get other first-rate features including amazing speakers, 5G connectivity, fast Wi-Fi and a decent rear camera. It’s very hard to knock the iPad Pro, in fact, it’s pretty much perfect. The two problems here are the price and if you actually need all that power. There’s now that upgraded M2 Air on sale from £599 or you could simply buy the 10th Gen model at the new price of £349.

iPad Pro 2024 review: The tablet I’ve been waiting for
Source: Tom's Guide English
The iPad Pro 2024 is an exceptional tablet. Its vivid OLED display is a marvel to behold and the new thin and light design makes it more portable than ever. I’m also a fan of its speedy M4-powered performance and astonishing battery life. Sure, its peripherals are expensive, but as a device, the iPad Pro has everything you could ever want from a tablet. The only loose thread is the iPad Pro’s AI capabilities. This has been a sticking point for me whenever I review an “AI” computer since there just aren’t many applications that take advantage of a chip's NPU (Neural Processing Unit) in any appreciable way. Apple says the M4 and its onboard Neural Engine NPU is an “absolute powerhouse for AI,” but I’ve yet to see that. Hopefully, the company will go into further detail during WWDC 2024. Even if the iPad Pro never becomes an AI powerhouse, it’s still an incredible tablet for people who want a powerful slate with a gorgeous OLED display. The iPad Pro has set a standard for all premium tablets to follow.

If you find yourself saying, "LOL, the iPad Pro is super overpowered for something that's supposed to just stream Netflix and browse the internet," that's an indication the iPad Pro isn't for you. So the question is, who is the M4 iPad Pro 2024 for? This perfect user for the iPad Pro 2024 is a professional digital artist who often steps away from their desktop PC and needs a sleek, on-the-go device that can handle taxing workloads (on apps like ZBrush or Nomad Sculpt, for example) while they're traveling from A to B. If you're not a pro artist, another niche that would love the iPad Pro are Apple enthusiasts who don't mind dropping at least $1,000 on a luxury slate that has a brilliant, sleek display, a striking high-contrast panel, and shockingly long battery life. If you fall into any one of those categories, the iPad Pro is, indeed, for you. Otherwise, it'd be best for you to consider the iPad Air, a cheaper option, that starts at $599.

100% Apple iPad Pro review (M4, 7th gen): super powered, super bright
Source: Stuff TV English
As you’d expect, 2024’s iPad Pro makes gains. But the performance gains here are quite staggering. But the question is why has Apple upgraded the Pro quite so much? Is it to take people away from their Macs? Is it to discourage others from even trying to develop tablets? To revive iPad sales? Is it all of the above? Also, whisper it quietly, but we’re at a stage where the iPad Air also now has an M2 chip and even the base level iPad has a lot to offer, now at a cheaper price point (RIP the home button). The iPad Pro now offers a level of power that most people won’t ever need – it’s for the 1% who design or draft with the Apple Pencil and as such the Pencil Pro is also a serious upgrade for them. Apple is also targeting Pro users who haven’t upgraded from much earlier models, but there has to be more to come in the iPadOS department at Apple’s developer conference next month. Surely there has to be to power up the software to match the terrific power on show here.

For now, it’s just an iPad. The best iPad ever, I think — maybe even the best iPad you could reasonably ask for. But the story of the iPad — the “magic pane of glass,” as Apple is so fond of calling it — is actually all about software. The iPad’s software has let its hardware down for years. Apple has led us to believe that’s about to change, that this year’s WWDC will be the great turning point for AI and iPads and everything. We’ll see. Until then, the iPad Pro is almost too good for its own good.

90% Apple’s M4 iPad Pro makes me want to ditch my laptop
Source: Mobile Syrup English
The iPad can be an extremely personal computer, and as the form factor becomes more compelling, I think it’s time to give up on preconceived notions of what a computer is and how we should be using laptops. If you want to use the M4 iPad Pro as your main computer, you can, and it’s a damn great machine. I expect a lot of will reviews complain about multitasking and how the iPad needs to run macOS, but from my perspective, that alienates people who have selected the tablet because it isn’t a Mac. It’s simple on its surface, but as you dive deeper, pro iPad users will be the first to tell you that over the past few years, things have gotten really good on iPad. Sure, Stage Manager is a little different, but the fact that it unlocks multi-window support on iPad is a huge boon for working.

Apple iPad Pro (2024) Review in Progress: Future Tethered to the Past
Source: Petapixel English
If you’re already a fan of working on the iPad and you’re just wondering if these updates are worth it, I would say yes. The thinness and weight feel magical and the new Pencil Pro feels like Apple has really hit its stride. The display is stunningly beautiful and I think students and many artists will find so much to love here. Photographers and filmmakers, though, will have to exercise some patience. Multiple members of the PetaPixel team will be using an iPad Pro for the next several weeks to really get a handle on it. We also really want to see Final Cut Camera and its integration with Final Cut for iPad 2 before we come to a final recommendation because it sounds like an experience that will make the iPad Pro worth having. As a result, we aren’t willing to lay down a recommendation yet. We think the high asking price of the iPad Pro — as worth it as it might be for the size and brightness — requires more consideration than just a few days.

Apple iPad Pro (M4) hands-on: Insanely high-end, remarkably thin
Source: Hardware Zone English
One thing to note about performance is that it will vary slightly depending on the amount of storage your iPad Pro has. The 256GB and 512GB models will have M4 chips that have 9 CPU cores and 8GB of memory, while the 1TB and 2TB will have chips that have 10 CPU cores and 16GB of memory. I don't think the additional CPU core is going to make a huge difference but it's something you ought to take note. I’ve long maintained that the iPad Pros were the most stunning hardware that Apple makes and the newest models reinforce that thought. These new tablets have beautiful displays, remarkable build quality and thinness, and even better performance. Objectively, they are better tablets than the ones they replace. But do you really need a tablet with such ridiculously overkill specs? I’ll need more time with them to give you a definitive answer.

The M4 iPad Pro is Apple’s engineering at its best
Source: Mobile Syrup English
The keyboard isn’t the only new Pro accessory. Apple has also revealed the new Apple Pencil Pro, which adds haptic feedback, a squeeze gesture and a gyroscope to make using the pencil even more natural to use than before. These sound like minor upgrades, but being able to slightly rotate the Pencil Pro and have it change how my handwriting looked was seamless. If you’re a digital artist, this Pencil upgrade is going to be really hard to avoid. That said, because Apple moved the webcam to the long side of the new iPad models, this new Pencil needed an upgraded magnet and charging array to fit over the camera module. This means it only works with the new iPad Pro and the new iPad Air. The Pencil Pro also has ‘Find My,’ so you can locate it when it’s lost.

iPad Pro M4 (2024) preview: Apple dropped a big, thin upgrade!
Source: Phone Arena English
So, as you can probably tell, we expect the next iPad Pro models to be predictably great. Nothing exciting or jaw-dropping, though our jaws are still on the floor since Apple decided to put an M1 chip in the iPad Pro back in 2021. The new design is kind of cool, but it's not really the main new feature. That Tandem OLED screen may just steal the show. The redesigned Magic Keyboard is cool, but it means that old iPad Pro owners who want to upgrade will need to buy the tablet and the keyboard yet again. Are they worth it? Most definitely — we do enjoy our time with the current iPad Pros, and — as mentioned — even use the M1 units from back in 2021 excessively, with no slowdowns still. If you do spend a lot of time on a tablet, they make up for their price in value — with their performance, screen quality, sound, usability throughout a dynamic day, and software ecosystem. If you are looking for a glorified Netflix machine — an iPad Air may be the better financial decision.

Apple M4 10-Core GPU: An integrated graphics adapter designed by Apple that features 10 cores. This iGPU is built into Apple M4 SoCs (both the 9-core and the 10-core flavor); it uses the unified memory architecture and is not all that different from the 10-core M3 GPU in terms of features. Early benchmark comparisons between the 10-core M4 GPU and the 10-core M3 GPU hint at performance gains as high as 15%, however it is important to state right away that the M4 chip's performance sustainability is set to be very poor because of the new iPads' thin chassis that lacks active cooling of any kind. Just like the rest of the Apple M3 chip, the graphics adapter is manufactured on a "second generation 3 nm" TSMC process.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


M4 (10 cores): An impressively fast ARM architecture processor (SoC) featuring 4 performance and 6 efficiency CPU cores along with a 16-core neural engine and a 10-core GPU that has sports hardware RT support. Other noteworthy features include 7500 MT/s RAM support, USB 4 support and Thunderbolt 3 support. The M4 debuted in May 2024 as part of an iPad launch event; it is 10% to 20% faster than the M3 (10-core GPU) chip in short-term multi-thread workloads while also being about 10% faster than the 9-core M4. And the new iGPU is a little faster than what both of those two have as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.

The same applies to tablets in this size range.
