Apple iPad Pro overview

  • 1Description

While the size of the silver Apple 128GB iPad Pro may be a bit daunting, its 12.9" Retina Display will quickly remove your doubts, thanks to its 2732 x 2048 screen resolution, 264 pixels per inch (ppi), and 5.6 million pixels. Supporting high resolution videos and photos, you'll be able to experience vivid colors and deep black levels. The Retina Display delivers greater contrast, more uniform brightness, and improved energy efficiency through photo alignment technology, oxide TFT, and variable refresh rate.

Powering the large Retina display is the Apple A9X chip with a M9 motion coprocessor. The 3rd generation 64-bit chip can pump out desktop-class CPU performance and console-class graphics. The faster performance allows you to multitask with ease, using iOS 9 features, such as Picture in Picture, Slide Over, and Split View. Also, the iPad Pro is capable of playing three simultaneous 4K video streams in iMovie.

The iPad Pro comes with iOS 9 installed, which features proactive assistance as well as powerful search and improved Siri features, all while protecting your privacy. There are multitasking features designed specifically for iPad which allow you to use multiple apps simultaneously, and built-in apps become more powerful with a redesigned Notes app, detailed transit information in Maps, and the added News app. The foundation of iOS is even stronger with software updates that require less space to install and advanced security features to further protect your device.

While the Retina Display of the iPad Pro features multi-touch capabilities, Apple does offer alternative ways of interacting with the iPad Pro. The Apple Pencil is an optional accessory that can capture twice as many data points as your finger for greater precision. Force and tilt sensors transmit precise information to the iPad Pro so you can intuitively lay down lines of varying thickness and opacity. The Smart Keyboard is another optional accessory that connects to the Smart Connector on the iPad Pro, which means you don't have to use Bluetooth. The Smart Keyboard has Apple's dome switches for precision typing.

Design

12.9" Retina Display
At 12.9 inches diagonally, the Retina Display on the iPad Pro offers 78% more display area than that of the iPad Air 2. Under the glass lies a revamped Multi-Touch subsystem and 5.6 million pixels. With a 2732 x 2048 screen resolution, the iPad Pro provides sharp text, vibrant color, and deep black levels, making everything from photo editing to intense 3D gaming more vivid and engaging.
Photo Alignment
To improve on‑axis contrast, Apple used an advanced process called photo alignment. This involves shining UV light to create a uniform terrain across the film coating on the thin film transistor and color filter, so the display's liquid crystal molecules lie precisely where they should. Better‑aligned molecules mean you see better contrast when looking directly at the display.
Oxide TFT
The oxide thin film transistor in the iMac Retina 5K display has been adapted to the Retina display on iPad Pro. The resulting TFT provides faster pixel charging and better brightness uniformity across the larger canvas.
Variable Refresh Rate
The iPad Pro knows when the content on your screen is static and cuts the refresh rate in half, to 30 times per second instead of 60. This means that the screen isn't just big and bright; it's energy efficient too.
Timing Controller
The timing controller, or TCON, is the brains of the display. It tells each pixel what to do and when to do it. Since the iPad Pro has 2.5 million more pixels than the iPad Air 2, Apple custom designed the TCON to handle the greater resolution, giving it more bandwidth to allow lightning pixel control at fast speeds.
Portable & Lightweight
Despite having 78 percent more display area than the iPad Air 2, the aluminum unibody of the iPad Pro measures 6.9 mm thin and weighs just over 1.5 pounds.
Four Speaker Audio
The iPad Pro has four innovative speakers that produce a stereo soundstage as enveloping as its display. The speaker housings have been machined directly into the unibody enclosure, and their innovative architecture gives the speakers 61 percent more back volume compared to previous iPad audio designs. You'll hear a wider frequency range and up to three times more output than on any other iPad. The speakers in iPad Pro aren't just high fidelity, they're highly intelligent. While all four produce bass frequencies, the topmost speakers are dedicated to higher frequencies. They also automatically recognize whether the device is in portrait or landscape view. So you'll always get vivid, well-balanced sound no matter how you're holding the iPad Pro.
Smart Connector
The Smart Connector is an interface that takes advantage of the two-way conductive fabric in the Smart Keyboard (sold separately). It allows iPad Pro to provide power to the Smart Keyboard and lets the Smart Keyboard relay each of your keystrokes back to iPad Pro. Simply align the Smart Keyboard to iPad Pro - just as you would with a Smart Cover - and start typing.

Technology

A9X Chip with M9 Motion Coprocessor
The A9X, Apple's 3rd-generation 64-bit chip, gives iPad Pro the power to easily take on tasks that were once reserved for workstations and PCs. Despite the high performance, the A9X chip's underlying architecture is efficient, ensuring that there's one way in which iPad Pro isn't massive - battery consumption. With 1.8 times the CPU performance of the iPad Air 2's A8X, the A9X chip delivers in both speed and responsiveness. Even complex tasks like creating, rendering, and manipulating a 3D design or editing multiple streams of 4K video happen quickly and smoothly. Despite having nearly twice the pixels in its Retina display, iPad Pro still offers up to double the graphics performance of iPad Air 2. The iPad Pro features a revamped storage controller that has increased read and write speeds, so you can quickly open even the large files, like the big 4K movie you just edited or all the RAW images you imported from your HD camera.
Metal
Metal gets high graphics performance out of the A9X chip and iOS 9, so developers can design highly immersive console-style games and blazing-fast apps. Metal optimizes the CPU and graphics performance to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects, so every virtual world feels more realistic.
Battery Life
You might expect that such high performance would compromise battery life. But even with its high-resolution Retina display and robust A9X chip, the iPad Pro maintains energy efficiency, providing up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge while on Wi-Fi and up to 9 hours on a cellular signal (battery life may vary depending on usage).
Wireless Connectivity
The iPad Pro features 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology and MIMO, so you can easily connect to fast networks and enjoy download speeds of up to 866 Mb/s.

iOS 9

Slide Over
Now you can open a second app without leaving the one you're in. You can quickly browse the web, respond to a text message, or jot something down in a note, then slide that app away and get back to the one you were using before.
Split View
With Split View on the iPad Pro, you can go a step further and have two apps open and active at the same time. Work on a sketch with the reference photo beside it or write a paper while copying citations from a book in iBooks.
Picture-in-Picture
While using FaceTime or watching a video, press the Home button and your video screen scales down to a corner of your display. Tap to open a second app, and your video continues to play - even while you use the other app. So keep watching your favorite TV show while you reply to the email that just came in.
Shortcuts at Your Fingertips
Shape up your text in no time with the Shortcut Bar, convenient editing tools, and a handy way to select text with Multi-Touch gestures. And now when you use the Smart Keyboard (sold separately) with your iPad Pro, you can enjoy even more keyboard shortcuts.

    Apple iPad Pro reviews

    12.9" iPad Pro (128GB, Wi-Fi Only, Silver) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 74.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best iPad I Have Purchased For 6 months I have been looking at the 12.9 iPad Pro wondering if it was too large. Curiosity got the best of me and I purchased it. I just returned from a trip in which I brought my new iPad. It is the best iPad that I have owned. It is fast, graphics are great, and movies are fantastic on it. I use it more for entertainment (music and movies), books, newspapers, search the web. My concern about the size was not a problem, it is easier than carrying a laptop; if you don't need a keyboard. My seat mate was interested in my new iPad. He has the same concerns about size. I let him use mine, he too appreciated the size, graphics, and speed of the processor. He said that he was going to buy one soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I-pad Pro Delivers This is my second I-pad, having used my first generation I-pad for several years. I use it as a reader for e-books, web browsing/shopping, e-mail, photos, face-time, and various apps. The display is large and uniformly lit, making reading very comfortable, and provides excellent imaging. The keyboard is large, complete with numbers and symbols like a desktop keyboard. It's a little heavier than the original, but not excessively so. I have equipped it with a tempered glass screen protector from Zagg and a leather CUVR. Overall, I am very pleased with it and highly recommend it. The service at B&H, as always, was excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Gorgeous Display on a Zippy Tablet The 12.9 iPad Pro is such a beautiful and function tablet. I use it to load and review engineering drawings. The display is so crisp that many times I don't need to zoom into an 11x17 drawing, but zooming is very fast and easy. I use it with the keyboard case, which is very sweet and does many things that a laptop can do. Originally I had planned to use a pen, but have not found that to be necessary for what I do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can finally make art with iOS! The iPad Pro (with the pencil) is awesome. It's great being able to draw on it with little-to-no calibration or input parallax. It's fast, stable, and just works. I wish it could charge faster, or that it shipped with a USB 3.0 cable.... or came *with* the Pencil rather than making you buy it separately. It's also a bit pricey. But overall, if you've wanted a bigger iPad (or didn't know you did, which was my situation), it's a worthy tool. It doesn't replace a laptop by any means, but I'm extremely happy using both -- I use the iPad as a secondary monitor when I'm on my laptop. Something that seemed insane and impossible years ago, but is just so easy to do today. Overall, it's great. Get it if you need it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, I love it. But without the pencil I can't justify it I'm going to be using this for school: notetaking (hopefully with the pencil). And writing papers. I'm still waiting on the pencil. I can honestly say that without the pencil, it probably isn't worth it. The screen is beautiful and it is easier to use the virtual keyboard on, but is that worth the extra cost? Nope - it's the pencil that justifies the cost, and this is where Apple has dropped the ball. Why they didn't decide to sell it as a package deal I have no idea......

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ipad Pro 126G We use it for all applications that other ipads can do (youtube, video, music, photo) plus some more special like 4K video capture and 4K movie viewing, thanks for the extremely high resolution 2732 X 2048, which is even higher than the Mac Book Pro retina. Pros: Beautiful image quality, color and contrast with retina display. Better clarity due to higher resolution. Sounds are much better than other ipads due to its 4 powerful speakers, which is great for movie and music. I no longer need to order Bluetooth external speakers. The ipad pro looks absolutely beautiful from its rose gold cover on the back to the beautiful and large 12.9 retina screen on the front. It is pretty light to its large size. Decent battery time. The ipad pro is fast and powerful. Touch response is excellent (even after I put the glass screen protector on it). Cons: We have to get the cover to protect the camera lens and the back as well. Do not include the Apple stickers (as the iphone 6s plus package does).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if I really need it... Ever since I gave my iPad3 to my parents, I was iPad-less till now. iPad Pro is large, slim, fast, and everything, it's pretty good hardware-wise (from the spec and review data). Although the hardware is much better than my wife's iPad Air2, it just doesn't seem that iPad Pro can do much more than iPad Air2 besides the screen size is larger (and 4 speakers). It just doesn't seem a very useful productive tool, but just for fun. The app store is full of joyful fun apps, but lack of productive apps. It's kind of waste iPad Pro's hardware if there is no strong app support. I am a photographer, and this iPad Pro is much more powerful than my PC hardware-wise. but I can't do much due to there is no much photo editing app besides pretty lame Photoshop related app, and lack of storage space. 128GB is just too small for photography, and there is no usb port for additional spaces. I was going to return it after a week because I found I didn't spend much time on this device, it means I don't really need it. I keep it because in case of traveling, but I don't travel much. So I haven't decided yet, I have until 1/31/2016 to return this item. Maybe I will still return it. Verdict. It's a fun device, but that is it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Welcomed upgrade I purchased the Ipad pro to replace an aging IPAD2. The processor capabilities and speed were even better than expected. The retina display helps my aging eyes with brightness and clarity. Main use is general aviation apps involving piloting. This includes weather briefings, radar, flight planning, navigation, and instrument approach procedures. Using the Wi-Fi hotspot with an iPhone 6 there was also a remarkable improvement. It is much bigger physically but that is outweighed by the larger display and viewability. You need a good case to protect it if you travel.
