iPad Pro: The reviews are in

iPad Pro next to animated review text.
Reviewers around the world are weighing in on the all-new iPad Pro. From its edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, to the powerful A12X Bionic chip, Face ID, new Smart Keyboard Folio and second-generation Apple Pencil, here are some impressions of iPad Pro from reviewers and the creative community:
“By every measure I can think of, these are the best, most powerful, most capable iPads I’ve ever used. They put other tablets to shame.”
“The 12.9-inch iPad Pro…is the most powerful mobile device ever made. The A12X Bionic processor in this slate runs circles around even Core i7-powered laptops on certain tasks, and yet the device weighs just 1.4 pounds.”
“It’s such an intimate creation process that it made me realize that Apple’s not merely trying to change my or your old habits. Apple’s not trying to make the iPad Pro a laptop replacement because the device isn’t one. It’s trying to do something bigger: invent a new way of creating for a new generation that is not bound to the old computing laws of clicking a mouse.”
Daring Fireball
“The new Apple Pencil is one of the best ‘2.0‘ products I’ve ever seen. The original Apple Pencil is a terrific product, but the new one nears perfection for the concept.”
“The mobile workflow was seamless and both the hardware and software were incredibly powerful.”
The Independent (UK)
“The new iPad Pro is a huge upgrade from previous models, and is easily Apple’s most accomplished and attractive tablet yet. Its speed and versatility are remarkable, arguably more than many will need, but for creatives especially, it’s going to become the tablet of choice.”
Pocket-lint (UK)
“Apple has produced an iPad that we suspect many pro users will want — and not just because of the increase in screen size or the thinner design. There is so much here that blurs the lines when it comes to working on the go that it will pique the interest of those who have started to question whether they still need a laptop.”
CityNews (Canada)
“Apple’s latest iPad Pro is truly beautiful. It’s hard not to be wowed when you first pick it up. And that wow factor continues as you begin to discover what it’s capable of doing. It’s a powerhouse and without a doubt my favourite iPad to date.”
HardwareZone Singapore
“The idea of using an iPad for all your computing needs is very attractive and I think the newest iPad Pro comes even closer to enabling that dream. It is super portable and its performance is off the charts.”
