It’s my baby
I’m always on it, it’s always near me, I listen to music on it, play games, everything! I’m never without it, best time to live honestly where devices such as these exist.
My only issues with it are it’s price for the specs you get, the camera could be better, the ram could be higher, the display could have better ppi density and the sound could be stronger/better as well, some songs I can’t hear if the road is loud, could hear the songs on the previous gen no problem.
The size is amazing, it’s light for it’s size, good for watching videos,...heaps better than the tiny 9.7 ones. Battery lasts all day, except on some games like Ulala where I keep it plugged in while playing. One other issue is it’s not as durable as the old ones were, mine has numerous cracks and scratches on the screen, you can’t see them unless looking for them which is good. It’s also not that great in the sunlight, unless you crank the brightness to full, battery hog though. Also lower right hand side creaks as if it’s not connected properly to the shell and the auto correct is often a nuisance. However overall this device is my life and I will continue buying them for as long as they make them.
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.
An Outstanding Piece of Gear
I don't consider myself a fan of Apple necessarily, but I AM a fan of their equipment. This is the second iPad I have owned (the first is perhaps 7 years old now and I still use it for reading at night) and it really is an amazing device.
What I like most:
Great screen - super clear and bright, which makes it good for even outdoor viewing
Great responsiveness - when you tap or pinch-zoom, or scroll, the device responds instantaneously
Great battery - we're all used to phone batteries dying in a day but this just keeps going
I have ...the cellular model which makes it great not having to rely on wifi all the time, and I have to say it's fast. The keyboard that came with this model is that waterproof one with clacky keys, and while it may not be the most satisfying typing experience, the keyboard hasn't had one single failure yet - unlike a similar keyboard on an old Surface Pro that lost function in the '3' and 'B' buttons after 2 years. The white print on 'A' and 'S' buttons are beginning to fade, as is the '>' on the full stop button. Evidently I must use these the most.
Product is great would highly recommend everything about it is so much better than the competition nothing compares to
The camera is great even though I hardly use it the ease and funtionality are great the battery is amazing and the fast charging makes it even better, face recognition is great with the product way bettet than Samsung's or any other company's

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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

A bad Apple
Apple has become TRASH
I used to be an Apple FANATIC. As a late Apple adopter my first device with the pin wheel MP3 player. I believed you get what you pay for that the premium price tag meant I would experience exceptional service. That used to be the case.
I was less than enthusiastic about the continuing iOS updates and how that gradually made rather good handsets obsolete. Still as I started using more and more of the iPhone capabilities it became a part of every part of life from shopping to cooking and even exercise in some way Apple...got incorporated into everything. Then came my iPad Air which I was given as a sign-up gift for a household utility. I was now fully an Apple user until 3 weeks ago when my iPad Pro was last updated and everything went sideways. My device was wrecked as I could not do anything on it reliably. It would crash looking like it was a hands free hard reset but not responding like a hard reset and starting up in 5-15 seconds opening in the standard ways. I was given the run around about doing factory reset, delete and reload the affected apps then having to reinstall the update but for that the PRO needed help from a computer (yes, I know it’s supposed to be a stand alone portable device). What followed was a comedy of errors, device would not backup, couldn’t get the update to fully reinstall, had a host of random errors but most of it was hampered by the fact that the device kept on restarting itself in after a few moments. The device became more erratic after “fixing” it was escalated and engineers advised that yes the hardware could very well have been affected by the software update but it would still be an out of warranty service in other words “we messed up but you get to pay for the fix”. What angered me the most of my experience was the way they kept looking for a way to blame me, flat out lying to me, the being passed around like a hot potato and the refusal to accept that their software damaged a perfectly good iPad which I have every right to expect them to repair. Yet all I got is “we sorry but you know it’s not covered by warranty” to which I responded that I didn’t break it your software update broke it. I then said I wanted to refer it to my local consumer disputes tribunal and would need to know whom to name as a representative. So NO they won’t give me the a name or title. They won’t tell me what the process says just this is their decision event though the software caused me loss and damage they maintain the position that they have no responsibility to provide remedy. In the end they violated my consumer rights and left me with the full understanding of the low standing they view people. Anyone who buys Apple can look forward to paying premium for the privilege of being treated in a manner that would leave you feeling like a class A idiot for believing their Hype. I now have an inconvenient paper weight. I was due to upgrade my phone now that they finally at long last have a product that would have suited my needs. I will not be buying Apple if there is anyway to avoid it and there certainly are many ways to avoid Apple products. When the 10 Apple devices ranging from iPads to MP3 players need upgrades I will be sourcing something where I get what I expect or where I can replace the device without substantial financial loss. They also delete posts requesting how to get info for a disputes tribunal complaint - because it’s not helpful?

Worth the price
This tablet is great. I have had this for about 5 months and have no issues. Definitely worth buying if this is on sale. Minor differences between 2020 ipad pro and this one so don't waste your money.
Great buy for University!
Honestly the best purchase for Uni, can do everything on it and yes you can dload Microsoft word, powerpoint etc on it. ITunes university is on it and free and found lots of free courses that complimented my studies for my Masters in ERP. Light weight, large clear screen and amazing sound quality. I also bought the pen and use the tablet for art with procreate. Great value for money.
This release version is the first ipad I have been able to use in production. I design user interfaces for simulation software and this tablet has provided my with much more mobility.
Definitely worth it over previous models. The display is also very vibrant and sharp

Love it, perfect for study
I got my Ipad a little over a year ago and it was the best decision to get one. I use it to study and paired with a keyboard it is just like a computer but smaller. The apps run well even when multiple tabs are open and the camera seems to have okay quality.

Great to use a bit hard to set up
Transfering everything from my old ipad to my new has been a tad difficult. however, now that everything has been moved across I have been enjoying my product immensely. It is fast and I can store all of my photos of it.

Classically Apple, but hard to hold
The 11" Apple iPad Pro (3rd Gen) is everything that I hoped it would be, but go have a proper test of it before you buy one.
- Apple build quality and 'ecosystem' (if you are already an apple user)
- Clean lines
- Beautiful display
- Face recognition works nicely
- Noticeably faster than other tablets (not just iPads)
- Accessories work flawlessly
- USB-C connection...

Amazing to use. Battery life is great. I love the size of the screen, and it's not too big to carry around. I use it for school for illustrations and it's just amazing drawing on it.
iPad done almost properly
So, this is my 4th iPad and 2nd iPad Pro 12.9 inch model, so I have been using the iPad for quite a few years now.
First and foremost, the capacity. With a wide range of capacities, the 3rd Gen iPad Pro 12.9in comes from 64GB to the towering 1TB. I chose the latter, as I use my iPad for a variety of activities. These will now be extended with some of the other features. But the 1TB provides more than enough room for photos, both by the iPad and also from connecting to my professional camera gear.
No HOME button. This is a great set-up, which ...ensures a very clean look. Also the only thing that dictates whether the iPad is the right way up, is now the sleep/volume buttons. Coupled with the Face-ID, which works very nicely, accessing your iPad Pro is easy. Yes, it takes a little to get use to, after years of using iPad, but it works. The only issue is the camera can ( and will be covered) at least a few hundred times until you get use to it. Build. With a modern, clean set of lines, the new iPad Pro is as they say, like holding light. Just about 1/2kg, it is light, easy to hold. The back is quality aluminium, giving it a up-market feel. It also makes a big link like me tha more confident I wont snap it by accident. No matter the viewing angle, it is clear, the colour is vibrant and the perfect rounded corners, make viewing a pleasure. But what about the CPU? WOW! This is the new A12X CPU/GPU. It leaves even the original iPad Pro 12.9in still a good device, but slower for sure. Games and Apps load quickly. Graphics are exceptional, whether editing a photo to the most demanding games, the new A12X chip -handles it with ease.

Questions & Answers
Is the 11 inch one big enough for editing photos
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
