The Tablet to End Laptops? Apple Releases iPad Pro

Larger screen. Better resolution. New accessories. These are just a few of the new features being touted since the iPad Pro hit the shelves November 10.

Since its release, every tech guru has grabbed the iPad Pro to share their own review. Some are calling it impressive, others are saying it is too large, and some are questioning if this tablet could officially make laptops obsolete.

Here are a few things we think you should know about the new iPad Pro.


iPad Pro has a 12.9-inch touchscreen – making it the size of two “normal” size iPads. The size of the product makes the tablet look like a laptop. However, instead of lugging around a heavy laptop, this tablet has everything you need packed into about a pound and a half. The backs of students everywhere are already thanking Apple. 


Traditionally, iPad tablets could stand alone. All you needed was your finger. iPad Pro opens up a world of new Apple accessories to the user, including the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. Tech insiders are loving Apple’s new stylus. Its similiarity to a normal pencil allows users to quickly learn how to use it, and there's virtually no lag between the movement of the pencil and what shows on the screen. This accessory makes the iPad Pro perfect for creatives everywhere.


The larger screen, four speakers, and most powerful chip make iPad Pro one of the best tablets for applications. Gizmodo listed a few apps that have an even better user experience on iPad Pro. From reading, writing, designing, drawing, and even playing games, applications available on iPad Pro will meet all your computing needs.
