Not an apple fan

An old ipad is playing up and I considered replacing it with a current model but just before I did I thought perhaps try a hard reset to see if that helps before dumping it. I thought Google were paranoid they are amateurs compared to apple. I have never used the unwanted icloud email and accordingly they want proof of purchase before activating the machine. Are they serious 10 year old receipt. Has helped me not to waste money on an expensive new pad after this experience.

Mind of its own

I wish I had of bought a laptop
I dislike this iPad as it’s been glitchy from the start.
Apple support is anything but.
I can’t recommend this product to anyone based on my experience
The screen ghosting is constant
The crashes often
Very disappointed Show details

Durable and reliable

Primary use for this device is some mobile games (not the graphics intensive kind) and watching videos with a little bit of productivity from time to time. The operating system that Apple specifically designed for all of its tablets have a ton of functionality and add to the user experience. The power is in the software instead of the hardware. Something to remember when you are dealing with companies like Apple where the hardware doesn't have much to offer from the get go or from the first sight.

Works extremely well with the Apple pencil and other third party styluses designed for iPads of this size. Show details

Good but not Perfect

Being a professional Photographer,and following the publicised release of Adobe Photoshop for I bought the ipad pro,only to find Photoshop is not fully functional or developed.Useless for a Professional,and doesn't deserve Pro label.

iPad Pro is very high quality, works great. I did not regret a bit that I got it!

A wonderful huge screen, very high-quality color reproduction, large viewing angles, a picture of the level of a glossy magazine or photo, excellent performance - everything flies, there is no touchid button - without it, it is more convenient to use the tablet with gestures, after binding to the appleid, all the advantages of the Apple ecosystem are immediately available (messages, photos, calls, etc.), it is very convenient to use Face-ID (you can set it up for 2 persons and not enter any passwords), the tablet is very light, holds a charge for a long time.

Very useful

I use the iPad pro for my law studies and it really is just the best. I love handwriting my notes so I can say the compatibility and functionality of the iPad pro the the iPencil 2nd gen is great! It makes me want to write more. I also use procreate for my business such as creating logos and designs for my website. The ipad itself is fast even when I have many tabs open. Show details

I use this everyday! Loving it!

I use my iPad Pro everyday - for work, study, and entertainment. It is just perfect! The size of the screen is just awesome. In term of user experience, I think that it is smoother than the old pad that I previously own. I couldn't be happier using this iPad Pro. Show details

Loving this iPad Pro!

I use my iPad for entertainment. As far as I could tell, everything is running smoothly. I have not experienced any laggings. The screen is just perfect for me to watch Youtube. The battery is just enough for me to use for a day. The performance of the iPad is awesome. There is nothing bad that I can tell with my iPad.

As a digital artist - one of the best purchases I've made

Purchased March 2019 with the sole purpose of using the art app Procreate, after multiple hours of research at the time. Used with the lastest apple pen - it has simply been one of the best artistic purchases I've made. Although limited compared to a traditional drawing tablet when it comes to using 3D software or the Adobe suite (though I believe there are ways to make it function as a PC/MAC tablet), its portability and pen fidelity are great, and personally prefer it over a wacom tablet. No messing around with drivers. Quick and slick (when using procreate atleast). When combined with matted/textured screen protectors - I can't recommend it enough. Show details

Waste of time and Money

I got a new iPad Pro to use while traveling for work. It does not connect to external hardrives, DVD players and does not even have a spot to connect my headphones. I will not be buying anything so useless again. Show details

This is the best iPad ever!

I use this iPad for design and documenting. It is faster and more efficient than the traditional iPads. All the apps work smoothly on this tablet. Graphic quality is very good. Show details

Is the 11 inch one big enough for editing photos

Greg N.

Sure, it would do the job, but the larger 12.9 iPad Pro is the preferred one to use. But the 11 in would be more than capable.

Is it worth spending extra for cellular and 265gb? Or would 64gb wifi only be sufficient for a student or someone who already has a laptop

Lee

Best advice is to get only 64gb WiFi. You don’t need cellular especially if you have a phone and cheaper to rent iCloud if you ever reach capacity.

Details

The third generation of iPad Pro is a line of tablets by Apple. It features two models with a 12.9 inch or 11-inch screen which were announced in October of 2018.

This generation of iPad Pro was the first iPad compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil stylus. Like the second generation, a larger size and stylus compatibility was a point of difference from the rest of Apple's available iPads, but the third-generation iPad Pro was also the first iPad to use facial recognition (Face ID) to unlock the device.

Upgrades from the second-generation iPad Pro include the more powerful A12X Bionic processor, storage capacity of up to 1 terabyte and the larger display of the 11-inch model (upgraded from a 10.5-inch model). The third-generation iPad Pro also premiered a new design, with a screen that covers the entire front face and has rounded corners.

What reviewers thought

A large screen with high-quality colour reproduction, dynamic viewing angles and excellent performance, reviewers rate the Apple iPad Pro 3rd gen as having great video quality and ease of use. Users also liked the screen’s responsiveness, the long-lasting battery life and the Face ID feature.

The points of frustration include the camera quality and the RAM which doesn’t allow you to run intensive apps as smoothly. It is not very durable as the screen is prone to scratches and cracks. There is also no option for expandable storage as there is no USB ports or headphone jack.
