We've been testing Apple's new iPad Pro for a few weeks and it was time to let our audience know why we've fallen in love with this tablet. We've tested the tablet in numerous scenarios such as meetings, press conferences and even used it for editing images. 

The 2018 iPad Pro is the all-in-one device for creativity, gaming, business owners and even journalists like me.

After using the tablet for a few weeks, I've been wondering the same question as every tablet owner- do I really need a laptop for my daily work? Whether you are a college student or a graphic designer, the new iPad Pro fits everybody's needs. 

Here's our review of the new iPad Pro, where we tell you how it performed and what tasks it could perform: 

Design

Right off the bat, you will notice the beautiful design of the 2018 iPad Pro. In fact, it's the prettiest tablet we've ever seen. The iPad has seen the biggest design change in years where Apple has removed the home button, gotten a full-screen design and beautifully curved corners that you are accustomed to seeing on newer iPhones.

We've been using the 12.9-inch model where the size is now dramatically smaller than its predecessor, thanks to the new design. The bezels are gone and now it feels good to hold it in the hand. It's also lighter than its predecessor and weighs only 631g, making it easier to carry it in your backpack. 

The new Apple Pencil is now magnetically attached to one of the sides of the iPad Pro and charges wirelessly. Apple has now made the change that everyone wanted, as you no longer have to stick the Apple Pencil into the charging port of the new iPad. 

The magnets are strong enough to hold the Apple Pencil in place and you won't have to ever worry about it falling off. This also means that you do not need to store the Apple Pencil separately- making it more accessible for users. Naturally, this resulted in us using the Apple Pencil more often than usual, especially when we needed to edit images or write down notes. 

You can even use the Pencil to unlock the iPad straight into the notes app if you want to jot down some of your thoughts.

Speaking of the new Apple Pencil, it's more ergonomic to hold as the design mimics the design of a traditional pencil. It works pretty much the same, with pressure and tilt sensing. The flat edge on the Apple Pencil makes it easier to place it on a table as it doesn't roll down like the previous Apple Pencil. 

You will need to buy the Apple Pencil separately and it costs Rs. 10,900 in India, which is probably a necessary purchase if you intend to use the iPad Pro for creative purposes. 

Display, Speakers & Face ID

When it comes to the display, Apple has provided one the prettiest and most vivid screens on an iPad ever. It has a refresh rate of up to 120 fps and can adjust it automatically depending on the work you're doing. 

For example, if you are gaming on the iPad Pro, it will automatically push the refresh rate to the max for optimum performance while reducing it to 24fps if you're reading an ebook or comics. Apple calls this technology the ProMotion screen and is probably the most useful feature of the display. 

It has a resolution of 2732x2048 and with accurate colour representation and P3 wide colour display, it makes it addictive to consume video content on Netflix and other streaming platforms. 

The True Tone display technology also helps the user in better readability, just like you would experience it on an iPhone. It basically matched the listing temperature of your environment to reduce the strain on your eyes. 

The new iPad Pro also uses the same technology as the iPhone X to unlock the screen. Now that the home button has been removed, the iPad Pro will scan your face to unlock the device. There's only one face-scanning camera, however, it works very effective unless the camera is covered. What's cool is that the unlocking feature works both in landscape and portrait mode without you ever having to adjust the orientation of the display. 

To complement the excellent display, Apple has outfitted four hidden speakers on the iPad Pro with a woofer and tweeter in every corner. This results in a very impressive and loud sound that delivers stereo audio no matter how you hold it. This accentuates the experience when consuming content on the iPad. 

The only disappointment you will face is the removal of the 3.5mm jack. Apple has now opted to provide a USB-C port and you will need to use a Lightning for USB-C dongle in order to use your own headphones. 

Performance & Usability 

Now that the iPad Pro has a USB-C port, you can use SD card readers for transferring images and videos. You can even use the port to output videos to 4K displays. It was a much-wanted feature by designers that would enable them to see their work on the bigger screen. 

The iPad Pro now also supports Hubs which can be used by musicians to plug in their MIDI instruments for DAWs like Logic Pro and Abelton.

The new iPad Pro is powered by Apple's latest processor i.e. the A12X processor. It basically outperforms Intel's six-core processors you see on many laptops. The iPad Pro was able to perform exceptionally well when it came to editing images and videos. In fact, we didn't see the iPad Pro slow down even for a second, a feat even most laptops can't boast about. 

In the benchmark tests, the iPad Pro scored 4,965 in single-core and 18,092 in multi-core on Geekbench 4, a score that leaves even the Microsoft Surface behind.

In terms of usability, we used the iPad Pro in numerous scenarios. We used it to type this review, edit the images and even edit a basic 4K video. From our experience, the iPad Pro can easily replace your laptop for daily work however there's a catch. 

The last statement is only true if you're already deeply embedded in the Apple ecosystem. This means you already own a MacBook with your files shared on the iCloud drive. It's the only way to access files across systems in case you need to pull up an old document or image from your laptop. 

iOS has not developed a way to access storage to transfer, back up, or find existing files which can be a drawback for non-Mac users. The Files app is not comprehensive enough to replace the flexibility and workability of a laptop. This will probably affect only 1% percent of iPad users, however, for the sake of this review it had to be mentioned.

In order to use the iPad Pro as an office or college laptop, you will face no issues as you can use the Smart Keyboard cover to type notes and carry out daily mundane tasks. We used it to type this review and faced no issues whatsoever. 

Keyboard shortcuts are also growing in various apps such as Affinity, Pages and others which makes it useful for people who are still used to using a keyboard. The smart keyboard cover only needs a trackpad so that we could move the text cursor with much more accuracy and finesse. 

The Final Say 

The 2018 iPad Pro is a brilliant device and is probably our favourite gadget from Apple's 2018 portfolio. It is the best tablet in the world as it leads in performance, design and usability. Having said that, it cannot replace the laptop for everyone unless you're already on the Apple ecosystem. 

It's more powerful than the MacBook Air or even some Intel-powered laptops, however, it still needs a comprehensive file management system to become the ultimate tablet. But if the iPad Pro fulfils your need at work or college, it is the device to own in 2018/2019.
