The 3-Minute Apple iPad Pro 10.5" Review
Impressive, but is it excessive?

Our Rating: 4.5/5

The iPad Pro 10.5" has a big, beautiful, high-definition screen with an amazing refresh rate and TrueTone technology that gives you fantastic picture quality. With powerful hardware and good battery life, the iPad Pro can handle almost anything you'll throw at it.
There are a few unfortunate drawbacks to this excellent tablet. The hardware is extremely powerful. However, there aren't a lot of apps around right now that will let you actually use the iPad Pro to its full potential. Given its price, it's debatable whether it's worth paying the extra money for performance you can't take advantage of. The Apple Pen and Smart Keyboard are essential accessories if you want to get the most out of this tablet. The problem is that you'll have to buy them separately (and they're expensive).
Is it for you?
One word to describe Apple's newest iPad Pro is excessive. If you want the best of the best and are prepared to drop some serious cash for performance that rivals a high-end laptop, the iPad Pro may suit your needs.
“The 10.5” iPad Pro is powerful, but there aren’t many uses for that power.”
Meet the Apple iPad Pro 10.5”
The iPad Pro 10.5” is Apple’s newest addition to their tablet ecosystem. The tablet was released in June 2017 and has quickly garnered attention and praise for its seriously impressive specifications. Apple’s proprietary hardware continues to impress, with this latest model packing horsepower that puts many laptops to shame. A larger screen for easier typing, increased battery life, and a high-resolution display with next to zero lag are some of the main features in this reincarnation of the iPad Pro.
What we like
The iPad Pro 10.5” has a lot of things going for it. The display is one of the biggest improvements. Apple took a screen that was already impressive and cranked it up to 11. The high-definition display features a 2224 x 1668 resolution.
Another impressive technical upgrade on that front is the display’s 120Hz refresh rate. For those who are unfamiliar, the refresh rate refers to how quickly pixels get updated on the screen. In practical terms, that means that scrolling and swiping on your iPad has never been smoother - you’ll very rarely see any lag. The TrueTone technology also allows your iPad to be easily viewed in any sort of lighting.
An upgrade from 9.7” to 10.5” might not seem like a huge jump, but the addition of that tiny bit of extra screen space makes typing using the on-screen keyboard feel a little more natural. The battery life also got a pretty big upgrade. Now you’ll generally get a solid 9 hours of multi-purpose use out of a single charge.
What we don’t like
The 10.5” iPad Pro is powerful, but there aren’t many uses for that power. It says a lot that the main negative thing that we have to say about the 10.5” iPad Pro is that it has too much power for this current generation. Everything about this tablet is excessive to an extreme. It has more technical capability than most laptops, but there isn’t currently a lot that you can do with that power.
That excessive technology also comes with an excessive price point. You’ll pay a premium for this tablet. Add some accessories on top of that and you’re looking at a serious amount of money.
Should you buy it?
The Apple iPad Pro 10.5” is the best of the best when it comes to tablets. Huge amounts of power and display upgrades lead to a crystal clear and smooth user experience. However, that power is under-utilized and it’s dubious whether a tablet really needs the power of a high-end computer. It’s a decent upgrade over the previous generation, but that comes at a price.
If you want the best and you’re willing to pay a premium for it, the 10.5” iPad Pro may be a good pick for you. All in all, we recommend the 10.5” iPad Pro, with the caveat that it’s just a little “too much” all around.
