Cannot tell how much I agree with the critic from the Verge about the new iPad Pro in 2018. In 2018 when apple is showing off how powerful the new generation iPad Pro could be , apple at the same time shipping the by-product that how obvious the limitations of an iPad (or iOS) are . With all these amazingly powerful hardware in the new iPad Pro 2018, it's the first time we see the iOS is holding the hardware back from reaching its full potential while forcing consumers to pay the bills for the hardware. All of these marketing doesn't make sense at all when we're talking about an iPad more expensive than a capable laptop computer. Eventually, if you're paying a price as much as for a powerful laptop , you're demanding for getting serious things done efficiently , rather than appearing to be aesthetically cool casually. Lastly, Well, having no real file/folder management capability in such mature iOS is really an immature behavior .

I have the previous gen 12.9 inch iPad Pro, and I love it for what it is. However, I agree with everything you said in this review. If you know what you’re using it for and its limits - its a great machine. I’m a student, and for me its a paperless option for note taking with apps like Notability. And I have the added convenience of having a computer for pretty much anything I need. I’ve used a laptop for school work, and it’s nowhere near as engaging and versatile for note-taking in lectures. That being said - the iPad can’t be a computer for people that need a full computer and full-strength programs... Maybe someday, but it’s not there yet.

I am planning to buy a new portable device. I am confused between Surface Pro and this iPad pro. Budget is not an issue. Can all you people please help me decide. Till now I have been using Samsung Tab s3, iPad 3 and HP x360. HP is basically a laptop but its small and i can use it as a tab though heavy.

Nice review overall. Despite being critical of the iPad Pro, I’ll still, probably get one compared to the new MacBook Air. I mainly use my computer to type documents, to create slides using google drive and to surf the web for news and entertainment like a normal tablet. It can probably replace my laptop, especially when Apple fixes the Files feature. The one thing that I heard no one talk about at all is the iPad Pro’s future proofness. The A12X chip is so powerful that it could probably handle future iOS updates for the next decade at most. Overtime, Apple will develop iOS to be more optimized with more iPad specific apps and third party apps that take advantage of the A12X. So if I do buy one as a laptop replacement, I should be fine based on what I need for now. However, if I do need more pro apps later down the road, the iPad will probably have those apps by the time I need them. Either way, I think it’s a good purchase for me.

*"Yet"* or *"...for now"* should be included after every one of his complaints. People forget that this thing can improve greatly fast. For this reason, I found this video slightly misleading, but for the most part I really liked this product review.

I’ve got an 800€ bonus to spend in electronic shopping for the school but I’m actually in doubt between the new IPad Pro , the old MacBook Air or the base model of the MacBook Pro. What would you suggest to me ? Consider I have a mid 2012 MacBook Air 11” which fits a lot with my daily use (web browsing normal stuff ), the most important thing for me it’s MATLAB using, that is not still available for iPad . Thank you for your attention.

The pen being magnetic should’ve been on the first iPad pro. Why don’t they make a iPad Pro that can do everything a laptop can do, the tech is already in there hands but they don’t because they will put those features in the next iPad pro

Apple can do hardware so well.... they really need to focus on software and compatibility. The walled garden is no longer useful in keeping people in the apple ecosystem, it’s keeping the company from growing bigger. If it more seamlessly fit in with my other devices then it would be great, but right now my phone and iPad feel like they’re on their own little island. At this point I think 3 things need to happen. One is apple needs to go all in on it’s own chips, as clearly it can take full advantage of it. Secondly they need to bake in great x86 compatibly into OS X once they move to be all A series processors. Finally OS X needs to be on every pro machine and optimized for touch, while iOS should be the non pro system.

Not a fan of the Price of the pencil after using a normal Stylus from Dollar Tree waiting for the pencil to come in. The new Pencil cannot open HOME SCREEN of Shift side to side to the next Application. The Keyboard Bores me to pieces and $200 is outrageous for this No frills Keyboard with No Home Button or short cuts and Can’t full protect the device when closed. I was hoping Logitech or someone else had something out for this 12.9 Pro so I can bring back this horrible plain keyboard. The IPad is nice but miss the Touch sensitive home button for unlocking and it’s features. I still have my other IPAD PRO that is still like NEW condition and I am asking myself do I need this new one? The screen is beautiful and the depth is amazing but not $1200 worth.

I only have the last version of the 12,9 version to draw in Photoshop - on my Mac. I use the Astropad app to do that, it does a great job of turning the iPad Pro into a graphics tablet. I did this to avoid having to buy an expensive Wacom Cintiq. So for that it works. I absolutely hate the roadblocks mentioned in the video, and use an android phone - I would never use iOS daily.

One note: the old Apple Pencil could be charged with lightning chargers using a tiny adapter that comes with the unit. (which was really easy to lose) I always ended up charging it the 'goofy' way by sticking it into the port so it looked like an old bluetooth antenna

I have been an iPad fan for years, but with this version, they've lost me. I can't justify spending $1,500 for something that won't truly replace my laptop. I have business apps which I simply can't run on an iPad. As it is, I was using my iPad mostly to RDP to a windows desktop.

I think (and hope) Apple have some big plans for iOS 13 in relation to iPad Pro. It needs a complete custom design on iPad with more exclusive features (and ability to use external storage media!) Sometimes it feels like Apple have absolutely no idea what they're doing.

And the stupidest decision: Mac book Air (wich is definitely sitting in front of you when you want to use it and you are looking at it) gets Touch ID and the iPad Pro (wich may just be laying next to me on my desk) I have to pick up now and look at it from the right angle for every little thing I want to check... What genius came up with that??? Also screw the new iPad because of the removal of the headphone jack, huge camera bump and still the lack of mouse support...

"I don't want to adapt to my computer, I want my computer to adapt to me." -> what a shame !!! life is about adaptation. My dad 77 use an ipad pro and no more computer, my son 19 use an ipad pro at university. If you do not want to go out your bondaries, your mind will stay so tight. Remember me something ...Is Microsoft a share holder of The Verge? Maybe yes... That's probably why the testers/journalists need more probity.

Really enjoyed the balanced review. Yep, powerful tablet, but that power can't be used to its fullest. Time to upgrade the Air-2. Need a pen too. Bummer the (no) headphone jack. Should not have to find a workaround at that price. Zero interest in geeky wireless earphones. Fingers crossed software will catch to hardware.

Design - Cool Performance - Cool Type-C - Super Cool Price - not cool but Apple so oki Software - totally not cool The only people who are gonna make use of this are artists using it as an mobile drawing tablet. Apple Pencil totally awesome, but other than that for an average consumer a $400 android could do the same. If ios had a file manager it would be a game changer in the laptop market.
