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.

Ticks all the boxes on what makes an iPad good

from Coolsmartphone
This is a great tablet and it is definitely one of the best iPad's ever made. Definitely is one for Apple enthusiasts if you are more of a Google user then it will work but also check out what Android can offer you as well... Full review

The best tablet money can buy

from Fone Arena
The iPad Pro 10.5 is by far the best tablet I have used in a while. In fact I’d recommend this over the 12.9 version just for portability. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a great device but Android as a Tablet operating system lacks the finesse which iOS packs... Full review

Excellent display, top-notch performance

from NDTV
As we all know, iOS 11 is coming soon with a lot of iPad-specific improvements. Once it is out, the iPad Pro (10.5-inch) will be good enough to replace the MacBook for a lot of people. If you use your laptop just to browse the Web, watch videos, write, listen to music, and perform other basic tasks, then the iPad Pro is an excellent gadget for you. It can do most of these things without breaking a sweat – but so could the less expensive iPad (2017)... Full review

A really powerful tablet

from The Indian Express

If you are looking for a tablet that will replace your laptop and still let you stick to high-end resource-heavy creativity, then your quest ends here. There is no other tablet that can do this much and this efficiently, that too without breaking a sweat. But if you just want a tablet to browse and consume video, then look at the more affordable iPads. As the name suggests, this is clearly for the Pros. And on the question, whether the new Apple iPad Pro can replace a laptop, I would now be inclined to say yes. I would be comfortable making this my online mobile device and not the backup.Full review

A delight on which to consume media

from Tech Advisor
There's a lot to say about the 10.5in iPad Pro, but in short, we think you'll love it. It's a delight to use for a huge variety of tasks thanks to its power, design and great screen size, but it comes at a price. For future-proofing, you'll likely want to opt for the 256GB Wi-Fi model at £709 at least, and when you add accessories like the keyboard into the mix you're getting very close to shelling out £1,000, and for that you could buy one of Apple's laptops...

The Wirecutter

Better performance, cameras, and color accuracy, and Pencil support

from The Wirecutter
Only slightly bigger than the standard iPad but considerably faster, the Pro has a larger, better screen, better cameras, and support for Apple’s Pencil. It’s better than the standard model for creating, multitasking, and gaming... Full review
The Sweet Setup

Perfecting near-perfection

from The Sweet Setup
I find it hard to look at the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and find a problem with it. It has all-day battery life, a stylus that feels like a regular pen, a stunning display, and great speakers. It has — or will have — new software that feels more adapted to the larger iPad screen and which speeds up how you use the device. And, it has a screaming processor capable of burning through an impressive set of tasks... Full review

Laptop-competitive performance

from PhoneArena
Apple strikes a very attractive balance with the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The larger screen size over the typical 9.7-inch variety gives you a tad more elbow room than you'd have on a smaller tablet, making things like reading text-dense websites slightly more comfortable. The bigger deal here is that Apple was able to give us such a screen without making the tablet's dimensions significantly larger than before... Full review

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
