Apple’s latest iPad release tries to further blur the line between laptop and tablet. With its larger screen, impressive spec list and established pedigree, it certainly looks great on paper.

Whether you’re looking for a portable workstation or a powerful media machine, the iPad Pro 10.5 seems to have something to offer everyone. Reviews are rolling in! Let’s see if they agree.

Apple is known for their build quality. The iPad Pro 10.5 is no exception. Reviewers loved the finish on the metallic back, the feel of the buttons and the lightweight yet sturdy feel of the device in hand.

The tablet features a TouchID fingerprint sensor, headphone jack and stereo speakers. In typical Apple fashion, there’s no microSD support. However, with up to 512GB of internal storage depending on the model, there’s certainly no lack of storage space.

The iPad 10.5’s display received rave reviews. Running at a resolution of 1668-by-2224, the display is clear and colorful. Reviewers loved the TrueTone and ProMotion features. These help to adjust the display based on your surrounding lighting and provide smoother scrolling. Wired noted, “… everything looks smoother than butter. Swiping homescreens, playing games, or just scrolling through WIRED feels like you’re actually touching the things you see, not just whacking pixels on a screen.”

Pushing those pixels, you’ll find Apple’s latest A10X hexa-core processor. While Apple doesn’t disclose the amount of RAM in the tablet, benchmarks from a few reviews showed it has 4GB of RAM. Performance reviews were stellar. Reviews touted zero lag, fluid movement, fast multitasking and solid media and gaming performance. TechRadar summed up opinions well, saying, “Apple really isn't lying about putting the best of the best in its A10X chipset—this is, by far, the most impressive mobile CPU we've seen.”

Software was one sticky point for most reviews. While the tablet ships with iOS 10, the fall update to iOS 11 promises a massive set of feature upgrades. This lead many to question whether purchasing before the update was worth it or if they were getting a true idea of the power of the tablet.

If you don’t mind holding a giant tablet up to snap a shot, you’ll find a camera similar to the iPhone 7 in the new iPad. With a 12MP rear lens and 7MP front-facing shooter, reviews showed some stunning photos.

News is equally good on the battery front. While specifications from Apple are scant, reviewers had no trouble getting multiple days on a charge with casual use. If you’re planning to use it as a productivity machine, TechRadar noted, “We managed to watch some video, browse the internet and do a lot of writing using the Smart Keyboard, and the battery was nearly dead after six and half hours of constant use.”

The Smart Keyboard is one accessory designed for the new tablet with the new Apple Pencil being the other. Reviewers noted that they add to the experience and functionality of the tablet but question the overall pricing.

This was the biggest issue cited by reviewers. By the time you add accessories and opt for a mid-tier storage capacity, you can nearly by a high-end laptop. Yet, until the released of iOS 11, reviewers couldn’t say if the iPad Pro 10.5 is a real laptop replacement. However, all agreed that if you don’t mind the price, the tablet offers one of the most compelling experiences on the market.

A natural laptop replacement

from Pocket-lint
The iPad Pro 10.5 is a lovely tablet to not only look at, but also to use. It wins on performance, display, camera (if you ever use it), and size, with the promise of becoming even better when iOS 11 becomes available later in the year... Full review
IT Pro

A fully-fledged business beast

from IT Pro
A screen upgrade would have been enough to net the new iPad Pro a perfect score, but the fact that Apple has stuffed in a host of additional upgrades means it's impossible not to recommend it. It's definitely top of the tree, easily the best product in its category and arguably one of the best products all-round that Apple has ever made... Full review

If any iPad replaces the MacBook, it’s this one

from Macworld
Overall, if last year’s iPad Pro was the Venus Williams of tablets, you can think of this new model as the Serena. If you already own a 9.7-inch iPad Pro, you probably won’t have a big reason to upgrade. But if you’re trying to replace your MacBook with a powerful iPad as your main computer, then this model is as good as it gets right now. And will probably only get better with iOS 11... Full review

Apple's turbocharged tablet

from The Telegraph
There’s no denying it, the new iPad Pro is a lovely device. For my money, 10.5 inches is the sweet spot for portability and ease of use on a device like this, especially since Apple has slimmed the borders. The screen is gorgeous and it has loads of power – more, I suspect, than the apps designed for this thing can make use of. In truth, I can find very little to fault it... Full review

A great tablet, but not a pro

from Notebookcheck
Apple has decided not to give the iPad Pro 10.5 a full makeover and instead made real improvements where it matters most. Particularly the new display is impressive - its great reflective properties and HDR capabilities will be particularly interesting for fans of movies, TV series and gaming. Unfortunately, we could not measure the promised P3 color-space coverage, but only the smaller sRGB color space... Full review

Half the laptop-replacement story

from SlashGear
I can’t argue with Apple’s hardware. The iPad Pro 10.5 ticks all the right boxes: it has the superlative display, a processor that comfortably out-performs the needs of any app in the App Store right now, and all bundled into a sleek and long-lasting aluminum and glass slice... Full review
iPhone Hacks

Close to perfection

from iPhone Hacks
The new iPad Pro might not be perfect, but it’s close. And it’s only going to get better once iOS 11 arrives. My previous thoughts on whether or not you should buy one right now, or wait until iOS 11 drops later this year, remain the same, though. If you’re in the market for a new tablet, this is the one to get (unless you want a giant screen, then the 12.9-inch model will suffice). Yeah, it’s going to get better later this year, but it’s already ridiculously good right now... Full review
Apple Insider

Stuns with 120Hz ProMotion display

from Apple Insider
You will notice the 120Hz ProMotion display and its fluid response time. You will notice the world-class hardware design. You'll notice how fluid iOS runs, how light and thin the iPad Pro is in your hand, and how much impressive technology has been packed into an incredibly thin chassis. And if you want to use the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, the iPad Pro is the way to go... Full review

The laptop replacement we’ve been hoping for

from Expert Reviews
The tablet in the traditional sense is all but dead in 2017, but the 10.5-inch iPad Pro proves that it still has its place. Add a keyboard, boost performance to near laptop levels and tweak the software so it feels more like a desktop – suddenly you have a machine that’s no longer a companion device, but one that’s ready to be your main computer... Full review

Both faster and more responsive

from Wired
Should you buy it? If you need an iPad, sure! It’s a terrific tablet, certainly the most versatile Apple has ever made. The 12.9-inch model works great, but it’s more desktop than handheld. The iPad’s been great for a long time, and the best tablet on the market even longer. But against all odds, it just keeps getting better... Full review
