There’s assuredly a new iPad in town: the fourth-generation iPad Pro, accessible in an 11-inch archetypal ($799) and a 12.9-inch archetypal ($999.99).
While at aboriginal glance these will assume appealing agnate to antecedent generations, Apple arranged a few key upgrades into these latest offerings. The new iPads accept the A12Z Bionic Dent with up to 1TB of accumulator (that’s added than best laptops!), a beauteous Retina affectation with True Tone (this matches the blush temperature with lighting in the room), and ProMotion (a 120Hz brace rate).
Arguably, the best agitative appearance for 2020 are iPadOS 13.4, which brings trackpad support, and the accession of a added camera and a LiDAR sensor on the back.
Over the accomplished week, we’ve been putting the Pro through its paces — heavily — and what you can do with the accouterments is appealing wild. So let’s dive into our abounding analysis of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The 12.9-inch is a massive iPad, but, in hand, it’s by no agency unwieldy. It weighs in at 1.42 pounds, so it can be agitated with aloof one hand. Overall, it’s about the admeasurement of a archetypal college-ruled anthology and fits central a 13-inch MacBook Air. Bezels about the 12.9-inch affectation are absolutely thin, and the TrueDepth camera bore sits on the top bezel aback captivated angular (left ancillary aback horizontal). You’ll acquisition four apostle grilles on the top or basal vertically, larboard or adapted ancillary aback horizontal. A USB Type-C anchorage — the distinct anchorage on the iPad Pro — sits on the bottom. The Adeptness button sits on the top with a aggregate rocker on the adapted ancillary aback captivated angular (horizontally, it’s adeptness on the larboard and aggregate on the top).
Flipping the iPad Pro to its aback unveils the capital camera module, adapted with a 12-megapixel advanced lens, a 10-megapixel ultra-wide lens, an LED beam and a LiDAR sensor. Additionally on the aback is Apple’s acute adapter — these three dots accommodate adeptness and handle the affiliation for accessories like the Acute Keyboard. It’s a glassy design, and it’s about identical to the antecedent iPad Pro, so what’s not to like?
The second-generation Apple Pencil magnetically attaches to the adapted ancillary aback vertical, or top aback horizontal. It doesn’t aloof sit snug, but it wirelessly charges, a affection we absolutely love.
Apple’s consistently fabricated acceptable displays, and that aforementioned accepted of affection continues here. On the iPad Pro we’ve been testing, it appearance a 12.9-inch Retina display, added accurately a Liquid Retina affectation with a cardinal of standards. Let’s breach them down.
Both of these flash ablaze on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and accomplish a big aberration in accustomed use. It makes for a beauteous experience, and it’s a high-quality one at a 2732×2048 resolution with 264 pixels per inch. Additionally, there’s an anti-reflective blanket over the affectation to let you use the iPad Pro in assorted situations — in absolute sunlight outdoors, beneath beaming lights and anywhere a ablaze could flash on the affectation — afterwards abrupt to see the abounding picture.
That all comes calm to accomplish it the absolute awning for examination photos or alive the latest adventure of your admired TV show. Colors are vibrant, blacks action abysmal contrast, and it delivers a actual astute picture. A photo of the Jersey Shore, for instance (a mostly abandoned one, accustomed the calm order), allows you to adverse the white bank with a dejected ocean that’s attractive appealing clean. You can absolutely see a aciculate adverse bead amid the bank and the ocean.
A bigger archetype adeptness be examination “Frozen II” streamed via Disney . Let’s skip to the arena area Elsa is authoritative the expedition beyond the ocean, encountering a allegorical horse. She’s cutting a white dress with abounding crystals and they all reflect and sparkle, which is assorted with a dark, aphotic dejected ocean — a affiliated of detail that speaks to the affectation on the iPad Pro. Waves blast with a white balloon of foam, authoritative the accomplished arena visually stunning, and the 120Hz brace bulk keeps up able-bodied with the animation.
We anticipate you’ll acquisition that the affectation on the iPad Pro can handle about annihilation you bandy at it and, aback commutual with the new accouterments inside, it makes for a acute advancement over the 2018 model.
For 2020, Apple is giving iPad users trackpad abutment — but it’s not aloof a basal implementation. Apple absolutely took some time on this and in archetypal fashion, it aims to accomplish the “it aloof works” mantra. Afterwards bristles canicule with it, we’d say it’s not perfect, but it does bear an adapted user acquaintance that Pro users and accustomed iPad users affiliated will enjoy. It’s not the accustomed cursor acquaintance you currently acquisition on the Mac.
On iPad, the cursor is a cellophane aphotic gray amphitheater that shape-shifts depending what it’s aerial over. Accompany it over a button, and it will aggrandize to ellipsoidal and aboveboard to awning and beleaguer the icon. It adapts to the ecosystem about it. Double-tap on a chat to admission the quick settings menu, acceptance you to copy, cut, paste, replace, ascertain and abundant more. One bull bang on a chat that is spelled amiss will accord you accessible admission to acclimation it. Aerial over app icons will accommodate to the appearance of the app.
You’ll additionally get to use some MacBook-like feel gestures as well:
These are accustomed agency to use a trackpad and they accommodate acutely able-bodied into iPadOS. You can alike move up to the array in the top adapted to accessible the Control Center. Appealing authentic that you can aloof hover the cursor over accuracy or aggregate and use a two-finger bash to accession or lower from the trackpad. Aforementioned goes for the top adapted bend — you can calmly accessible Notification Center.
These aren’t meant to alter how you use an iPad. It’s still a book advised for touch, and Apple is afraid to blow as the primary interface. But like the Apple Pencil, trackpad abutment could be accession big game-changer. Best of all, it’s not aloof bound to the iPad Pro. It’s on every iPad that can run iPadOS 13.4, including 7th Gen iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini 5 and the 2018 iPad Pro line.
The primary accent for application trackpad abutment will be Apple’s accessible Magic Keyboard. It’s a album case for the iPad Pro, like the Acute Keyboard, but it gives you a lot more. You get a trackpad congenital adapted in and a absolute Magic Keyboard — the aforementioned appearance that is acclimated on the new MacBook Air and 16-inch MacBook Pro. That agency it’s a scissor about-face with 1 millimeter of key travel, artificial keys and backlighting.
Even neater, the iPad Pro won’t absolutely blow the keyboard as it floats with magnets on the aback of the case. That additionally agency you can bend it in any way possible. We’re absolutely acquisitive to go hands-on with it, but we’re still a few months out. Preorders are accessible now, and they won’t appear cheap: $299 for the 11-inch iPad Pro and $349 for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Bigger yet, the Magic Keyboard will abutment the 2018 iPad Pro family. You can bet we’ll accept a abounding analysis afterpiece to launch.
But you don’t accept to delay until May. The Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Abrasion 2 and any abrasion that works with the iPad supports trackpad. That agency you can get a Bluetooth abrasion on Amazon or alike bung a active one in with the adapted dongle. And aback iPadOS 13.4 is out Tuesday, you could try it out for yourself on your iPad. Setup couldn’t be easier: Accessible Bluetooth with your alien trackpad angry on, and aloof baddest it as a accent you can pair. Again iPadOS handles the blow in the background. We activated a Magic Trackpad 2 with our 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Apple’s already taken affliction of the airing and dent trackpad abutment through iPadOS and best of the pre-installed Apps. Notes, the preinstalled argument alteration and autograph app, works absolutely accurately with it, acceptance you to highlight ample fields, calmly baddest abate ones and accomplish use of quick settings.
Rest assured, the fourth-generation iPad Pro can handle annihilation you can anticipate of. We’ve been testing the top-of-the-line 12.9-inch iPad Pro that has 1TB of accumulator inside. But it additionally has the aforementioned processor and RAM (aka anamnesis to advice with processing) that any added 2020 iPad Pro has.
The Apple-made A12Z Bionic dent that’s on lath is fabricated up of an 8-core CPU that splits into four achievement cores for abundant tasks and four added cores for accustomed tasks. That’s commutual with an 8-core GPU to handle acute cartoon beyond artistic apps, watching agreeable and alike for gaming. You additionally get a Neural Engine that admiral apparatus acquirements and has thermal cooling throughout. There’s 6GB of RAM inside, which is aloof shy of the 8GB in the new MacBook Air. It’s a lot, and it creates one of the best zippy, fluid, accelerated — admit absolutely any analogue for fast — adventures we’ve apparent on an iPad.
While testing, we approved aggregate we could anticipate of to analysis its chops. We acclimated Photoshop and Affinity Photo to adapt photos, batched several images with preset filters, and alike did some accessible assignment on removing exceptionable accomplishments features. We gamed in Fortnite, Mini Motorways, Alarm of Duty Mobile, Ballistic Baseball and abounding others. These all performed absolutely well, and we didn’t acquaintance crashes or anatomy drops. We had abutting to 50 tabs accessible in Safari while exporting a 4K activity in iMovie and in a FaceTime call. The iPad Pro captivated up to the claiming of assorted operations — and alike outperformed Chromebooks and some lower-end Windows PCs.
Multitasking holds up well, with the adeptness to accept two amount apps in breach screen, and you can still add in a third app that floats as a window. That third app can additionally be switched on the fly with a multitasking acquaintance that’s affiliated to the iPhone. It can get complicated for first-time users, but you’ll get the adhere of it afterwards a few days. It’s aloof not as accessible as the gestures with the trackpad.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro still opens and closes apps (even activating ones) with ease. You can focus that absorbing chipset on aloof one activating app, which is abundant for gaming, photo editing, cine exporting and more. It’s abstract for some, but it allows you to do a lot with one device.
We additionally activated the latest bearing iPad Pro in a alternation of criterion tests. These are tests we run on any accent we analysis to quantitatively analyze accessories and see the improvements through numbers. The 2020 12.9-inch iPad Pro denticulate a 1132 single-core and 4663 multi-core on GeekBench 5’s CPU test. It’s alone a slight 21 credibility over the 2018 iPad Pro on single- and 59 credibility over on multi-core. With graphics, the latest iPad Pro array a 10,166 Metal account against a 9,146 account on the 2018 iPad Pro. It speaks to the enhancements fabricated to the GPU with the A12Z Bionic Chip.
Our 12.9-inch assemblage can calmly aftermost over a day aback not absolutely in use. We acclimated it for about six hours the aboriginal day, fell asleep, and best it aback up the abutting morning. We still got about accession four hours on it. In general, you can apprehend 10 to 11 hours, depending on your acceptance levels. It’s absorbing for a book and in band with what we got on the 2018 model. It additionally meets Apple’s apprehension of 10 hours.
On the accountable of sound, the iPad Pro keeps its absorbing stereo speakers. There are four of them: two on the top and two on the basal aback captivated vertically. You can calmly ample a baby to average allowance with sound. Plus, it works absolutely able-bodied for appointment calls or FaceTime as there are bristles microphones congenital in.
The fourth-generation iPad Pro supports Wi-Fi 6 out of the box and Bluetooth. If you appetite cellular service, it’s an added $150 on the amount of your model. We still ambition and achievement that Apple will address a Mac with connectivity, but it absolutely holds up the abstraction that you can use the iPad anywhere. LTE on the iPad will accord you appropriate speeds and supports the big four networks in the United States: AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon. It has an E-SIM central as able-bodied as a concrete micro SIM agenda slot.
Along with the accessible Magic Keyboard, the second-generation Apple Pencil and the new Acute Keyboard Folios are the accepted arch accessories for the iPad Pro. On the Pencil front, there is annihilation new to address here. It still magnetically attaches to the iPad Pro and the iPad still doubles the wow agency by charging the Pencil at the aforementioned time.
It’s still our admired stylus from any tech company, conspicuously for its approach acceptance and cool low latency. It feels like autograph on paper, and while Apple isn’t touting improvements, it feels a tiny bit faster on the 2020 iPad Pro against the 2018 model. You can address artlessly with the Apple Pencil, alike with your palm, duke or wrist comatose on the display, as the iPad knows not to agency it in. You can adumbration with the Apple Pencil — columnist harder for a added achievement or lighter for a lighter stroke. It works for art or note-taking, and we’ve been application it during alive streams and appointment affairs for notes. You can alike bifold tap on it to bound about-face amid accoutrement — we abnormally like application this for calmly switching to the eraser. It’s a abundant accent for the iPad and to the blow experience.
Secondly, and additionally familiar, there’s the Apple Acute Keyboard Folio. Not abundant is altered for this either. It’s the archetypal iPad keyboard acquaintance with basal biking and a bolt covering. There’s no absolute acknowledgment from the keys; in fact, application it on a desk, you can sometimes basal out and feel the backfire of the board desk. On a lap, it can be adamantine to get your bearings with it. But it’s the Apple-made keyboard for the iPad Pro and alike with its shortcomings, it still fulfills the basal functions.
At 12.9 inches, the iPad Pro isn’t a acceptable best to backpack about to breeze photos, but it does acquaint a added camera for 2020. Yes, like the iPhone 11, you get two cameras on the iPad Pro:
Having both of these gives you the adeptness to abduction a lot with one device. It’s the aforementioned affordance we begin on the iPhone 11 ancestors — you can do added with aloof one device. You can about-face on the fly amid the lenses to abduction whatever is important to you. These both attempt 4K video as able-bodied and are commutual with a Quad-LED True Tone Flash.
On the advanced of the iPad Pro, you accept the True Depth camera bore that not alone admiral Face ID but will accommodate the visuals for FaceTime and selfies. It’s a 7-megapixel camera, an bittersweet camera, flood beam and a dot projector all arranged into a appealing baby housing. Photos attending abundant and accord you a lot of detail, and you can additionally use Apple’s Portrait Mode with this lens. Face ID is absolutely fast and unlocks no amount how you’re captivation the iPad Pro. FaceTime affection looks absolutely bright as well.
You can see some analysis photos beneath from the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
But this is aloof bisected the story. Apple added in a Ablaze Detection and Ranging sensor assimilate the iPad. Essentially, this LiDAR sensor allows the iPad Pro to admeasurement distances of altar at up to 5 meters away. It can booty those abstracts in a amount of milliseconds and bear real-time advice aback to the app. It sends it through to the A12Z Bionic dent which can aggregate and accomplish faculty of the data.
LiDAR about sends ablaze out, and aback it hits something, it will action aback to the sensor, which measures the results. This sensor will be huge for aggrandized absoluteness on the iPad. Anticipate faster AR adventures and ones that don’t blast or affection as abounding bugs.
And like best new experiences, this will booty some time to see the ablaze of the day. Developers will charge to accommodate the LiDAR sensor through ARKit 3.5 which ships with iPadOS 13.4. That agency we should see some new amateur and applications with AR affection sets alpha to crawl out in the advancing months. And we’ll be abiding to amend this already those arrive.
In the meantime, we’ve been able to try out the new Admeasurement app, which is preinstalled on all iOS or iPadOS devices. It’s abundant faster and abundant added authentic than the antecedent bearing iPad Pro and alike the iPhone 11 family. The flagship affection is the adeptness to calmly get someone’s height. You absolutely don’t accept to do annihilation but accessible up the Admeasurement app and accept accession in the frame; you’ll see a abandoned fast action and again be presented with the height. We approved this out a few times and the after-effects were accurate. For instance, it accurately abstinent the acme of our tech editor at 5-foot-4.
We’re aflame for what’s to appear with AR on the iPad and are hopeful that Apple will aggrandize the LiDAR sensor to added devices. It feels like a applied accession for these experiences.
Apple’s fourth bearing iPad Pro absolutely impresses. If the third bearing brought us a abounding redesign, the fourth seems like a clarification on the alfresco and a supercharge on the inside. It additionally keeps the aforementioned abject amount — $799 for 11-inch or $999 for 12.9-inch Wi-Fi variants, add $150 for Wi-Fi and Cellular respectively.
The iPad Pro absolutely feels like it has developed into itself. And with trackpad abutment accompanying with one of the zippiest tablets we’ve anytime activated (it’s the fastest iPad by far), this year’s iPad Pro is a bright winner. Still, you’ll be advantageous a ample price: with an Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard appear May you’re attractive at abutting to $1,300 for the abject 11-inch or abutting to $1,500 for the abject 12.9-inch. But it’s the amount you pay for quality, afterwards all.
Note: The prices aloft reflect the retailer’s listed prices at the time of publication.
