Engadget Review

The iPad Pro isn't for everyone: It performs well, but iOS 9 isn't as adept at multitasking as a laptop operating system, and the lack of any mouse input can get tiresome. That said, its fast performance and smooth pen input could be useful for creative pros who need a way to stay productive while on the go. The Pro won't replace your computer, but for a certain kind of user, it could be a handy supplement.

Pros
  • Well-built
  • Robust performance
  • Bright, pixel-dense screen
  • Lighter than you'd expect
  • Smooth, precise pen input
  • Surprisingly good audio
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • Expensive, especially with the accessories sold separately
  • Still heavy compared to other tablets
  • No mouse support; none of the keyboards have touchpads
  • Screen angle isn't adjustable on any of the keyboards
  • iOS 9 doesn'tmultitask as wellas desktop operating systems
  • Nowhere to store the Pencil
