Reading the comments on my iPad Pro 10.5 and chuckling. You guys know nothing, yet on paper you all sound so smart, discussing whether the « pros » would like the tablet or not, yet none of you are pros in anything, by the looks of it.
vcrule, 05 Jul 2017Anyone know the battery capacity of the iPad Pro 10.5. I know its 30.4Wh but I would like to ... moreWith the iPad Pro 10.5 you get 10 hours of medium usage more than any other tablet I know of including the Tab S3 and the Surface Pro at the same time it's 2 times as powerful as the Tab S3 and has a 120Hz refresh rate which goes up and down (changes) depending on the content being viewed this happens in order to save battery for example you don't need 120FPS if you're looking at an image. According to my knowledge the A10x chip in this iPad Pro is as powerful as the new Kaby Lake core i5 CPU's fron Intel however it has better grqphics on the die than the Intel HD Graphics 620 on the new core i5 die.
Conclussion: I would highly recommend the 256GB model over any other tablet on the market right now.
1. Fastest mobile display
2 . Good resell value after 2 years of usage
3. The only tablet suited for high graphic mobile gaming in 2017
4. Best RAM management on a tablet to date
5. iPhone 7 camera (one of the best cameras on the market(
6. 4K video recording
7. Best drawing experience avialable on a mobile device
8. Double the RAM of the previews generation
9. Very powerful creativity and editing applications (Affinity Photo, Pro-Create, Notability, Luma Fusion)
10. Can be updated to IOS 11
11. Very bright display (600 nits)
12. 2nd generation Touch ID (faster fingerprjnt scanning)
13. Headphone Jack (Yes it's still there)
1. Not durable (bends easily)
2. Expensive accessories
3. Most good apps are not free
4. No USB Type-C (Still uses a Lightning to USB Type-A charger)
5. No Quickcharge or other fast charging technology (lasts long but charges slowly)
6. No Micro SD card expansion (however you can buy a seperate storage device that you plug into the iPad if you want to store a lot of movies and photos and keep the built in storage just for apps)
7. Not IP68/67 certified (but again it's a tablet)
8. Software not as capable as Windows software (You can't make a video game or write a program on this iPad)
Would I buy it ? Yes I would. Should you buy it ? That's up to you however if you're a software engineer, a game designer or a 3D artist you're better off building a PC or buying a decent GTX 1050Ti laptop for $1000 however if you just want a powerful mobile gaming device with a large display that can edit photos and videos and has one of the best cameras then this might just be for you.
Anyone know the battery capacity of the iPad Pro 10.5. I know its 30.4Wh but I would like to know in milliAmperes per hour (mAh). Apple battery charging voltage has vary in the past and is not the typical 3.7V all the time. thanks
I bought one and it is fantastic. Sooo fast and so smooth! My iPhone 6s feels slow compared to this and my previous iPad mini 3 feels like a dinosaur! Screen size is much better now and the sound is excellent.
Twatonk, 06 Jun 2017it's 2017 and still no Quick Charge? Nice jokeIt does support quick charging. Unfortunately, you have to buy 29W charger + USB-C to Lightning Cable, all together £74.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2017"this bigger screen was my main point to upgrade and it is great!"
Irony. Why not get 12.9 ... moreI thought that one too and checked it at store before buying this 10.5". I thought it might be overkill and not that portable, it's also lot heavier. This 10.5" is great compromise.
Also with this one my thumbs can reach to the middle of the screen, so it's easy and fast to write in landscape. With 12.9" it's impossible.

Irony. Why not get 12.9 if you so desire the screen size. You will be blown to the moon.

No point to go there If better is available like i already said, don't see it worth of upgrade it's more or less the sama which i already had.
"Double check again, and then check again. Just see it in the Apple store. Think if its worth three times a iPad 5 cost!"
Three times? This was under two times and i got 256gb, Also iv been using this now for two hours and i'm blown away, definately was worth of the price, and this bigger screen was my main point to upgrade and it is great!
Also i can't believe how fast and smooth this beast is!

The main reason we are attracted to iPad Pro, is a simple wish.
1. Good battery life.
2. Not running a heat processor.
3. LTE support.
4. More portable then the avg laptops.
5. Apps when we are not into serious productivity.
Thats why you continue to see rants of such kinds. MOUSE MOUSE MOUSE year in year out, flooding the Apple discussion pages. Cries of the avg word / numbers users.
If you want to replace your aging iPad Air and you are just a causal user, i suggest you get iPad mini 4/ iPad 5 gen. Double check again, and then check again. Just see it in the Apple store. Think if its worth three times a iPad 5 cost!
The A10x, 120mhz Pro vision, iPhone 7 camera (seriously? just use iPhone7 and photo stream will do) do it no justice. Mostly a big waste of money.

To enhance your word processing capabilities, you buy smart keyboard.
To make sure you can type properly with the smart keyboard, you set the iPad on a table.
To prevent gorilla hands, you need a pointer device, so you can rest your arms on the table.
Then of course on the go, you gain touch, but lose some aspects of productivity. Like using the software keyboard and etc.
In fact, gaining mouse is the bare minimum for production for this device on a table. It needs easy way to move files, (File App iOS11 is nothing NEAR its MacOS counterpart.. no AFP, no SMB) so for professional to take this seriously.. it is still a Big nono.

The reviews are great, everytime i read reviews the more i want this, and well actually today is the day when my pro shipping to me.
"why sink 2K of your money, when you can get an iPad mini / iPad 5gen for much less and perform the same task? "
All these years iv been using my first iPad Air and tried to find a reason to upgrade, upgrading to 5 gen doesn't offer enough. This 10.5" was finally good time to upgrade this old Air, im using iPad a lot so i wanted it to be best iPad available when im using my money.
Also reading your comment, laptop is clearly better for you, carrying mouse for tablets just sounds stupid in my opinion. If you want it to be laptop then buy laptop and not tablet..
"With the 10.5 inch, it make it harder (although not impossible) to hold it in the hand and work"
The weight is exact same than my old 9.7" Air, if you don't have older pro version it weights more or less same than your old one. So it's not any harder.

3. Hardcore gorilla hands. with smart keyboard. (Poor arms)
Tell me which you refer.
This tablet is NON Pro. Its never designed for Pros. Only for artist and drawing people.. AND EVEN THOSE PEOPLE have problem using the UI because its dump down to support TOUCH crap. With the 10.5 inch, it make it harder (although not impossible) to hold it in the hand and work, which means its more comfortable to set it on a desktop.. and mouse or trackpad would work nicely.
It might look pretty for the avg touch consumers only. And then again, why sink 2K of your money, when you can get an iPad mini / iPad 5gen for much less and perform the same task? Or up to a Macbook where you can really get stuff done?
Look at reviews sites if you are not convinced. Some of which say its not worthwhile to review it with iOS10 now. It needs iOS11 to shine!. Btw. iPad mini / iPad also get iOS11, same set of features. Now which "Pros" need this tablet? - None.

shin, 23 Jun 2017no information about CPU and GPU?All you need to know is that the CPU and GPU is a beast and basically destroys any device currently out there running Android or iOS for now. The apple A10X fusion chip and it's GPU will even hold up well and probably even beat devices performance wise in the near future like the Note 8, Pixel 2 and should be on par basically with the A11 chip in the iPhone 8.
JohnIsCooper, 21 Jun 2017This destroys the tab S3 in all fields, I'm thinking of getting one soon.Get the 12.9 inch one over the 10.5 inch one, I've been using the new 12.9 inch one since the first day it came out and honestly it doesn't even feel that big to me anymore. You get used to the size of the 12.9 inch one very quickly, basically bigger is better lol, well up to a certain point Haha.
