The IPad pro is, what it is and it doesn’t claim to be anything that it isn’t. I purchased the 12.9” 128kb lte version with the Logitech create keyboard in January 2016 and I’ve no regrets! It does everything I expect it to do and it does it superbly. It also interacts seamlessly with my IPhone 6s plus.
When considering which computing device you are going to acquisition next you first have to evaluate your computing needs and then research the best device for that purpose. The IPad pro gratifies all of my computing needs and as Apple once suggested, probably caters for the computing needs of over 85% of us. IOS is only limited by the apps that haven’t yet been developed and I’m sure will continue to become a more and more accommodating operating system.
Ok, the cameras are not cutting edge, but are I believe adequate for the purpose. After all, how many geeks are going to want to use something of that size as their principal photographic device?
Is it expensive or even overpriced? True to say, for less money you could buy an equally powerful device. But, have you ever had cause to visit an Apple store? Or, have you ever bought an Apple product from a third party and then had to turn to Apple for guidance? Well, unless you have, you will not be able to appreciate how their professionalism, customer service, technical advice and product knowledge is, incontestably second to none and what sets them apart from the rest of the market and why they have developed such a loyal customer base! This quality of service does cost, but it’s a small price to pay.
Accessibility. I am an assistive software user which is another reason I choose Apple. My research has shown that all of the professional accessibility advisory bodies I spoke with rated Apple as being the market leader when it comes to accessibility. If this is one of your considerations when selecting a computing device then you should give Apple a serious look.
Finally, how can we forget Siri? Doubtless the most helpful inanimate assistant you could ever wish to have at your beck and call.
war is good for sales... every war in history is for money... kingdoms conquer other kingdoms for gold and power... until there 2 humans left there will always be war...
Why is there fighting everywhere? What happened to the saying 'to each their own'? Why is there this tendency to launch personal attacks?

Akinaro, 13 Nov 2015But I hope that 99% of your brain realize that iPad Pro is nothing more than bigger iPad? It ... moreIt's bigger? Wow! Never would have guessed! Also your wrong it is catered towards graphic designers and professional artists, the screen is specially designed to work with the pencil. Also the graphics apps available to the Pro are exclusive to the Pro, but ofc you wouldnt know that. being a manbaby and all. This device can run autoCAD flawlessly, so again your wrong. Lastly your periods and mood is not my concern.

It have the same system with just few features that doesn't change anything in terms of creating graphic on it. And pen? pen is just a tool, it doesnt change actual limitation of graphic apps on iOS.
So if its cool to make painting and drawing on my iPad but its nightmare to work on compex graphic and to WORK on it, why it would be different with just bigger screen?
I really dont have mood for such talking about who own what.
If instead of making SOLID point of why it would be good for that work you rather whine about "he didnt... bla bla bla" I see that there is seriously no reason why we would talk about it?
So instead of acting like kid, give me real reason and back up it with facts.
Best tablet in the market period.

how do you know this ? You tried that on a iPad Pro or just pulling these out of your .... pocket ?
Jealousy levels from the iHaters are as they should be :) hehe as expected.
4:3 aspect ratio is OK for small tablet like iPad mini, but on 12.9" screen it look huge and so 80's . I don't know why they call it PRO, it is just a giant iPhone seriously.
"Apple however have done a great job with the stylus, especially for their first attempt and direct comparison to the Surface 4 stylus are well in its favour."
How many times do we need to tell you guys?
It's not a stylus, It's a lot more than that.....
I do not find such device as a productive and versatile tool. It is just a fun toy. Without a file manager and proper keyboard and mouse you cannot do much. Fine control by pen is painful, only some painters can handle it. It is about the ability to handle a pen with precision in movements. Computer assisted designers will step into the past and fail in the future.

Apps and os is limiting everything.
It's media consumption system. Android or iOS. The same bag.
In terms of work its the same level as old symbian.
Working between apps is pain, no compatibility at all and most of options are made for quick editing not creating or modifying.

Most do of bloggers do anything to make more views and be more famous. I'm not saying that its some sort of conspiracy and all that people are amateurs in this. No, I mean that most of reviews like those are made quick and in favor of product. This is how world work if people like it or not.
But if someone want to be real Internet "journalist" should at least gather ALL facts, compare, analyze every aspect and at the end say about personal feel.
Because for most of time those bloggers spend 80% of space for personal "how I like".
As a journalist you need make your text universal for everyone and not be biased.
So if someone say that its good for work... Compare it to other work, not only working on text and simple images.
And most important if you say that device is good for graphic take in to the accout that working on graphic is not only painting and simple photoshop effects. As a graphic artist you work with lots of graphic formats and big files(even 1-2gb) that have even 50 of layers.
And working on such device with such graphic would be pain. Because if it was pain/impossible to do on normal iPad why it would be possible on just bigger version of it? Stylus... I mean pen would help? No.
Apps and system it self is
At the end, this is just a bigger iPad and the Pro moniker is only about size and nothing more, and of course, very expensive to be considered as productivity device... with just a mobile OS and apps.

Tend to skew the reviews favouring Apple's products. Not sure why they would pay double to type articles and search webs, I haven't a clue, but they do. And anyone reading those articles will have the idea that paying double for their meaningless tasks is a good idea too.
This ipad will be a failure just like the surface RT. This is an iphone with bigger screen some outdated multitasking. You be the judge of that! MacBook Air or this?!
