IPad Pro clear example of Apple copying us, says Microsoft exec

But, Apple made it known that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is a scale-down version of the iPad Pro 12.9-inch rather than a scale-up of the iPad Pro 9.7-inch variant, 9to5 Mac reported. It is already on sale first, and then on the operating table of the portal iFixit, whose staff assess the degree of its suitability for fix. Bare Feats, a benchmarking blog, posted some CPU and GPU test results that pitted the 2017 MacBook Pro models against the new iPad Pro 12.9 inch and 10.5-inch models. It is attached to the body a huge amount of glue, which immediately deprived the gadget number of points on a scale of maintainability. In fact, as with the previous generation of the iPad Pro, the tablet is best when you use its accessories such as Apple's US$160 smart keyboard case and the US$99 Pencil, if you're looking to sketch.

The screen is the best I've ever seen on a tablet, thanks to Apple's new ProMotion technology that switches the refresh rate based on what you're doing. I didn't have the time to fully test the new iPad's battery life but reviews point to battery life that is either the same or slightly better than Apple's rated 10 hours. Again, its additional features are obvious upgrades that Apple could have easily thought up all by itself - and iPad Pro is still a very different device that serves different needs.

The biggest feature in this new iPad, and the only noticeable one, apart from its sheer size, is its display.

It's also impossible to not mention its operating system when talking about the 10-5-inch iPad Pro. For example, you can have two apps open side by side with the iPad Pro. The new Apple tablet comes with a 10.5-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display with 1668 x 224 screen resolution and 265 ppi.

The screen is the key component of the tablet, of course. Apple is also offering a $150 discount for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro model.

In its current state, the iPad Pro is in an awkward position among Apple's product lineup. Or better said, iOS is still trailing behind macOS at satisfying some of the Pro needs - though iOS 11 brings a lot of exciting features to the iPad.

A Microsoft clone? Or an nearly Apple computer? This makes repairing all the more hard.

Enlarging the smaller iPad Pro was an effort to address the tablet's greatest weakness: typing.

The team discovered that the battery in the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is stuck in place and can not be removed or replaced, even though it is not soldered. But when it came to writing it while reviewing notes simultaneously, I switched back to my MacBook Air, largely because the keyboard felt better to type on and it was easier to multitask with several apps.
