If you 've seen Apple's iPad ad then you'll know what the company is trying to achieve with a tablet.
You know what I mean-when asked what an adult is doing, the little girl pushes the tablet around asking "What is the computer" and Apple wants the iPad to put the laptop aside.
Tim Cook said that last year we sold more iPads than the entire range of notebooks from all the biggest notebook manufacturers.
The IPad is not only the most popular tablet, but also the most popular computer in the world.
For this reason, the iPad Pro 2018 is definitely the master of a machine.
This is a huge update to the previous iPad Pro and the best and most powerful tablet I 've ever used so far.
But am I not sure it will replace the laptop for me?
First of all, the iPad Pro 2018 is a very successful technology.
Apple has changed the look of the iPad a lot.
Give it a thicker, more Slate
Like the rounded corners of the previous model.
Think of it as a larger iPhone 4 (remember those)
But it's a lot thinner.
Along the back is a thick antenna line and a large camera lens that stands out.
Just put the 633g tablet together and feel the power and performance.
Apple has shrunk the bezel (
Although not to the extent of the iPhone XS)
Throw the Home button and 3.
5mm headphone jack.
There is no lightning port, but USB-
C. We will talk about it later.
In terms of size, you can choose 11-inch or 12. 9-
Inch diagonal screen, you can choose to buy Wi-
There are only Fi models or models with cellular connections added.
This option will also gradually affect the weight of 633 grams mentioned earlier.
Apple put 4 sets of speakers (
Tweeters and bass speakers)
Every corner of the IPad Pro has impressive stereo sound.
The extra audio power means it won't be blocked when you switch around the handle.
Overall, it took me a little time to get used to the new iPad design, but it has grown on me and I think it will grow on you as well.
It looks modern and has a larger screen (
By reducing the baffle)
If you are a creative type that wants to draw or edit on it, you are welcome.
Change the Lightning port to USB-C is a big deal.
It makes the iPad consistent with the large number of accessories for all smartphones and laptops that already use them.
For example, you can insert SD-
Card reader and have it automatically import your photos into iPad.
Alternatively, you can output to an external monitor up to 5 k.
Most of your apps will only mirror to an external monitor, but there will be some changes-like in iMovie you can see your finished movie on an external monitor and keep editing the layout iPad.
It's irritating that iOS still won't include the SD card I just mentioned in the external storage bar.
Forgot to try to insert an external hard drive to copy across files.
You will need to use iCloud.
Maybe people will still be a little annoyed that Apple has lost its headphone jack.
But then again, the iPhone has been in use since 2016, so we reluctantly accepted it.
The iPad Pro is also powerful enough to charge your iPhone if you have the right adapter.
Like previous iPad professionals, it also has connectors that connect to Apple's Smart Keyboard (
Now behind though)
This means you can type as much as you like.
The only problem I have is that when you fold the smart keyboard as a tablet, you will find that your finger is uncomfortable to grab the button.
Because there is no Home button, you have to rely on FaceID to unlock the iPad, just like with an iPhone. The front-
Facing the camera is built into the border around the screen, and it can also work if you take it as a tablet or use it as a laptop for lateral support.
Apple has updated its stylus, 89 Apple pencils to work with the new iPad Pro, and it is worth noting that the old pencil model does not work with this new slate.
The new pencil will be automatically paired with the iPad and will charge wirelessly when you connect it magnetic to the top.
The pencil now has a matte finish that I love infinitely, not a smooth original.
There is also a new ability to double click on its side and switch between the drawing tool and the last tool
Tools to use when sketching or taking notes-whether it's an eraser or a highlighter.
The real highlight of the IPad Pro is the performance department.
This is an absolute beast that is easily comparable to the laptop in terms of speed and graphics rendering.
The beating heart of the device is the A12X processor, which allows you to import and edit 4 k lenses without any hassle.
The liquid retina screen has a display refresh rate of up to 120Hz, and Apple says the product has graphic capabilities that compete with Xbox One S.
Higher refresh rates mean less latency when scrolling or using an Apple Pencil, and the game runs smoothly.
Whether or not you will choose the iPad to play the game on Xbox depends on you.
What I can say is that the battery life is first class.
Apple offers up to 10 hours online quotes on Wi
Watch videos or listen to music.
I find that I can do all kinds of tasks comfortably using a tablet (
Email, watch the video, write this review)
I have been here for about two days before I need to insert it again.
If you push it to the maximum (
Use it as your main computer)
Then you charge it every night.
But if you take it out of the bag and use it for a few hours at a time, then you will get more time. Both the 11-inch and 12. 9-
Inch iPad pro will be available in silver and gray finishes with 64 gb, 256 GB or 512 GB of internal storage space apple has also added the new 1 tb option for the first time.
I haven't talked about the cost yet, so let's remove it first. The 11-
Wi-Fi for IPad Pro starts at £ 769
Wi-Fi model and 919
Fi and cellular versions as well as 12. 9-
Wi-Fi for IPad Pro starts at £ 969
Wi-Fi model and 1,119
Fi and cellular versions.
These are just the starting prices.
If you want to eat
Drilling at the toptiered model (12.
WiFi/cellular, 1 TB)
This gadget costs you 1,869.
Now, plus £ 89 for the Apple Pencil and £ 199 for the smart keyboard folder, you have a total of £ 2,157.
With these prices in mind, it's time to ask yourself what you're going to do with it.
If you are an iOS developer or a trade sketch artist, I will understand the need to have one of them.
But what about the average person who wants an amazing tablet experience? My suggestion is to avoid the price of this tablet and buy a normal tablet. 7-
The 319-pound iPad, frankly, is a great purchase.
While there's enough power here to replace my standard laptop-and the screen is pretty good as well-my insistence on the iPad Pro is largely down to iOS.
I don't think Apple's mobile OS has the ability to replace macOS or Windows 10 for me as quickly and efficiently as possible.
You can do a lot of things with an Apple Pencil and a smart keyboard folder, especially when you are an artist or writer.
But I do hundreds of small tasks every day.
Just like inserting a flash drive, grab them and rename them before pasting multiple files into an email)
It's still easier to perform on a laptop.
Still, this is still the best tablet I 've ever used-with a considerable advantage.
Hardware, performance, and industrial design are absolutely amazing, and Apple's absolute dominance in the tablet space is commendable.
It's not quite ready to be my full time "computer" yet ".
But if it's not close, damn it.
