We have come to expect superior quality from Apple products, and this is the iPad line is no exception. It’s not quite the personal computer that Apple CEO Tim Cook predicted last year, but it’s closer than ever.
Let’s start with the larger and better screen of the iPad Pro 10.5. I mean, it’s 10 and a half inches of beautifully clear screen with a resolution of 2224 x 1668 at 264 pixels per inch, and the noticeably smaller openings make it even bigger. It features a True Tone display and a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic and anti-reflective coating. The tablet is just over 6 millimeters thick and weighs just over a pound. It is available in four colors-space gray, Rose gold, Gold and silver. You can read more about its specifications here.
Apple never deceives us with cameras, but the 12 megapixel camera on the iPad Pro is really something else. It has a 5x zoom capability and produces images and videos are clearer than ever. It offers both auto focus and tap focus, features timer mode and body and face recognition.
However, the most improved performance may be the performance of the new professional. Apple’s A10X Fusion chip, an updated GPU and 4GB of RAM make the new iPad Pro 30% faster than its predecessor. Apple also claims that the graphics speed is 40% better than in the recent version of the tablet. The best part seems to be that, according to this Reviewer, it is very difficult to freeze or stop it.
The iPad Pro 10.5 will ship with iOS 10.3, BUT iOS 11 is expected to be released this fall and promises a world of good for Apple and its customers. According to Apple’s website opened iOS 11 “… incredible possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps”. We just have to wait to see how awesome it is when it is finally rolled out.
Of course, there are always pitfalls with the iPad Pro. To begin with, it will be sold for 6 649 and more, depending on the Version. We expected higher prices from Apple, and their products are usually worth their price, but it is still a tablet that is not accessible to anyone. Then there is the fact that iOS 11 is not yet available, which means that for some time we will not know how much it will increase the ease of use. And while it’s not too shabby, the 10-hour battery life isn’t as long as some other tablets can offer, but it’s a point I’d like to overlook if the Pro 10.5 is really all you say.
