Dusseldorf Apple iPad can take on various roles: video screen, e-book reader, photo album, game console. With the new iPad Pro, Apple once again emphasizes how the tablet computer can be used productively and creatively.
Most iPad Pro laptops were expected to retire. Three years ago Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced Personal Computer of Pro Series as a vision for the future. In the meantime, all the notebook manufacturers are selling more devices in this serial series, with the full range of products.
However, the usual notebooks category has not disappeared from the scene – quite the opposite. The new IPad Pro will now compete against interesting hybrid manufacturers, such as Microsoft or Lenovo.
If you look at the new iPad Pro performance, most notebooks have lost. With A12X with eight core processors, Apple's newer tablet is faster than 92% of all the mobile PCs on the market. The claim made by Apple has been confirmed with reference measurements. Even equipment, iPad Prok can depend on many competitors for PC, even though a lupus configuration of iPad Pro with terabyte storage and LTE modem was built very costly (2099 euros).
Interesting potential buyers are entry level models with 64 or 256 gigabyte (GB) memory, available for 87-inch 11-inch variants. 12.9 inches larger versions are 1099 euros. Small amounts of memory are applied: in practice, the impression of overcoming the limits of tablet performance is never achieved, whether Fortnite is doing, cut videos with 4K resolution with iMovie, draw pictures, layers with layers, photos with Procreate or Adobe. Edit Lightroom.
Both Pro models have an unqualified screen (notch), because the most recognizable iPhones are known. Even though the narrow frame barely provides this space, Apple's engineers have been able to adapt the sensor and camera face recognition to FaceID.
At the bottom, there was no fingerprint left, so you can not use a TouchID to unlock iPada. The facial recognition is not only correct, but when iPad landscape orientation is maintained. If you cover the sensor with your hands or fingers, the arrow will indicate on the screen.
The screen will convince you to look great. Colors in the panel to display DCI-P3 color field colors. DCI-P3 is a standard for Hollywood studios. These devices are compatible with this standard, above all 85% of the surface colors. The standard RGB monitor is not half. The color temperature can be adjusted to the ambient light through the TrueTone function.
New iPads must adjust the refresh rate to show full performance, such as moving web pages. There is not much power needed, the frequency is significantly reduced which protects the battery. When reading the sunlight, it is necessary, for example, when reading the sunlight, you can measure light intensity to 568 candles – the device value for tablet computers. The 11-inch pattern is 2388 x 1668 pixels, 164 pixels longer, compared to a 10.5-inch iPad Pro. 12.9 inch model is 2732, 2048 pixels.
Fonts and lines are clean and cut. If you want to enjoy the full resolution of videos, you should look at iTunes, Netflix or Amazon Prime. YouTube movies, on the other hand, are not shown in the highest resolution, because Apple does not support the Google Video Codec VP9.
The views are in a completely remodeled case, just like iPhone 5 edges. Up until now, Apple has rounded up the edges. The new IPad Pro is better in hand. And with a larger version with a larger screen, it does not cover as much space as its predecessor, you can watch movie, series, or videos comfortably on the couch or in bed. A 12-megapixel camera also improved, but still has a stabilizing image, so it does not reach the quality of iPhone models today.
With new models, Apple tells the iPad Pro of the Lightning socket, and instead uses USB-C. So you can not just load and connect iPad to a computer, but also monitor or other accessories. Ethernet adapter to connect to a LAN network.
It's painful. Apple has given some restrictions here. Thus, Word documents or PDF documents are not recognized on the USB stick; so that iPad can only be imported in this way. It is a pity that the conventional audio jack jack has been deleted. If you want to connect the headset, you need an adapter.
There is a lot of progress in the accessories. Appler offered an external keyboard with the first iPad Pro design in the United States three years ago. The current iPad Pro model (199 euros or 219 euros higher for the iPad) does not have umlauts and only ß, but has been more stable. In translation mobiles, it is rarely paid for by the new iPad Pro keyboard. Since the lightning jack has disappeared, Apple has completely redesigned pencils to draw and mark. The new Apple Pencil (135 euros) slightly dampens on one side and stores powerful magnets – a place for resting on the edge of the house. There is also an inductive charge.
In practice, this concept convinces. For one, the pen was not lost so fast. In addition, almost always it will be charged completely. The new pen allows you to double-split between two functions in the lower third, such as a specific drawing tool to Eraser and back. The first lapse generation is compatible with new iPads.
For Pen, the new iPad Pro for creators is really a professional tool. He also published a demo of the new version of Adobe Photoshop in 2019. Other professions, however, will not be so easy to say goodbye to the personal computer. Switching between different applications in the IPAD is confusing. Also, the line marked with your finger or pencil can not always replace the mouse, for example, if you edit long texts and constantly scroll through the passphrases.
Conclusion: New iPad Pro models are the best tablet computers on the market, but not a portable Windows or MacBook replacement.
