Apple iPad Pro

This device has a 2732 x 1248 resolution display, giving it a pixel density of 264 ppi. Its screen is 78% larger than the iPad Air 2. Overall, the tablet is 12 x 8.7 x 0.27 inches and it weighs 1.6 pounds.

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is powered by a 64-bit Apple A9X processor, which is promised to offer twice the memory bandwidth of the A8X in the iPad Air 2, as well as storage performance that’s twice as fast. There’s 4GB of RAM.

This tablet is debuting with iOS 9.1, so it will include side-by-side multitasking as well as other new features. It has since been upgrade to iOS 9.3.

It sports four speakers, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and 1.2 MP front camera, and support for the Touch ID fingerprint scanning system. Battery life is promised to be 10 hours on a single charge.

  • Pros

    • Immense battery life

Quick Take

The 12.9-inch display makes the iPad Pro the most productive tablet Apple has ever produced, and also the best suited for watching video. It's certainly not as portable as the company's 9.7-inch models, though.
