Review: Apple iPad Pro 10.5 inch

Apple unveiled recently been awarded two new iPad Pro models. The 12.9-inch model is similar in format remained the same, but 9.7 inches is replaced with a 10.5-inch model. What more can we expect from this new tablet?

What Is It?

Although the iPad Pro 10.5 inch screen, in terms of 20 percent has become greater compared to the 9.7-inch model, this is almost impossible because the edges to result in a reduced tablet. As a result, the device is only a fraction larger. The smaller model is still well in hand. The Retina display has deep, warm colors are 20 percent brighter and less reflective than its predecessors.

Thanks to ProMotion is the image of the tablet refreshed 120 times a second. This faster response to Apple Pencil and during surfing and gaming. But whether here also use is made depends on the app in question. When you pause a Web page, the refresh rate is down to conserve battery. This is still 10 hours.

Furthermore, the iPad Pro 10.5 inch 64-bit A10X Fusion chip, which is faster with six cores according to Apple than most laptops. That depends entirely on the laptop in question off. The tablet is provided at the back of a 12-megapixel camera that can record 4K videos. For selfies and video calling at the front a 7 megapixel HD camera. To store photos, videos and files Tablet has 64 GB to 512 GB of space, depending on the model.

The iPad Pro 10.5 inch can be ordered in silver, black, gold and rose gold. The model with WiFi only costs from € 739 and for a price starting at € 899, there is also an iPad Pro which a SIM card can.

Is it what?

The 12.9 inch I have from the outset to find big, so I was afraid when 9.7 inches to make room for the 10.5-inch model. But that fear was unfounded. The tablet is easy to use, has great strength making that quickly responds to actions. You notice when, for surfing the larger apps. Because of the slightly larger size can be a normal size keyboard work that is enjoyable.

Personally, I take the iPad Pro like it to appointments or traveling as a laptop is not necessary. Indeed, it is a good alternative. Apple seems increasing to go that route. This fall the new iOS 11 adds many new features. The new Files application allows you to store files easily from your email to include iCloud, Box, and Google Drive. Do you have one place to access all your files? Something that I think is a great addition soon.

The update brings down access to the Dock, known for the Macbook and iMac. Here you have quick access to applications and files of your choice. Furthermore, you can later texts, photos and drag files between apps. It also better uses the Pencil. You can later quickly take notes, without logging into the tablet.

Although we still have to wait for these updates, it is clear that making this new iPad with iOS Pro 11 in mind.

Pros

+ The 10.5 inch has a nice manageable size which fits perfectly in the bag.

+ The Retina screen is nice, but ProMotion refreshes the picture even further is quick handy while browsing and gaming.

+ Good substitute if you want to bring any laptop on a (business) trip.

Cons

– Apple Pencil (€ 109) and Smart Keyboard (€ 179) must be purchased separately.

Conclusion

The new iPad Pro 10.5 inch is a powerful, fast and tablet together with the Smart Keyboard is almost like having a full-fledged laptop with you. With the planned updates of iOS 11 this fall that feeling even more enhanced. If you already have an ‘old’ iPad Pro, then the need to move not very large. But you have a slow, outdated tablet and find more strength, then this iPad Pro worth considering.
