De reviews van de nieuwe iPad Pro’s
De nieuwe iPad Pro's overtuigen op veel vlakken. Bijvoorbeeld de processor, die inmiddels zelfs meerdere MacBook Pro modellen achter zich laat. Of het scherm van rand tot rand, Face ID, dat nu werkt in alle oriëntaties, etc. Maar voor alle voors en tegens zetten we hieronder de reviews op een rij.

Die reviews zijn unaniem positief, dat zou niet anders kunnen met zo’n overtuigende upgrade. Maar er zijn natuurlijk ook kanttekeningen, want hoewel iOS de afgelopen tijd een stuk interessanter is geworden voor serieus werk, ontbreken er nog steeds belangrijke dingen. Zo hebben deze nieuwe iPad Pro’s bijvoorbeeld USB-C, maar als je een opslagmedium daarmee verbindt krijg je dat niet te zien in Apple’s met iOS meegeleverde Bestanden-app. En Pro-apps zoals Photoshop komen er wel aan, maar zijn er op dit moment nog niet.

Is the new iPad Pro a stunning engineering achievement? Without question. Has Apple once again produced mobile hardware that puts the rest of the industry to shame when it comes to performance, battery life, and design? Yep. Is the iPad Pro the best, most capable iPad ever made? It certainly is. But you know what? It’s still an iPad.

My conclusion is this: If you just need or want an iPad, get an iPad. Apple has good ones, compatible with the original Pencil, going for just a few hundred bucks now. If you need more, something that combines raw power and absolute portability better than anything else on the market, then get an iPad Pro.

The iPad's a beautifully designed thing, now -- practically perfected, from a pure hardware perspective. The whole screen ratio to body size is just right, and the thickness, and everything else. Now it needs the accessories, the keyboards and trackpads, and the inputs, and maybe a more advanced OS that shows more on screen at once. But without the apps that show off what it can do, and push it into new territories -- USB-C camera tethering, multi-display app workflows, ways to maybe eventually add a mouse or trackpad or other inputs beyond a keyboard -- it feels hindered.

From battery life to USB-C accessory testing to doodling with the Pencil, there's still plenty more digging to do here. What I can say for now is that this new generation of the iPad Pro feels more capable than any other I've tested, and it seems to advance the idea that an iPad could, under certain circumstances, be a person's primary computing machine.

If Apple is able to let go a bit and execute better on making sure the software feels as flexible and ‘advanced’ as the hardware, the iPad Pro has legs. If it isn’t able to do that, then the iPad will remain a dead end. But I have hope. In the shape of an expensive ass pencil.

Now that Apple has declared the iPad is a PC, it should take more of the guardrails off of iOS and strongly encourage developers to treat it like they do the Mac. It’s time for iOS to grow up and get a job. The iPad Pro is one of the most powerful computers you can own. It could be the best PC, too. Or better than a Mac. For now, it still has to settle for being best tablet money can buy.

These iPad Pros aren’t cheap. Throw in a $179 Smart Keyboard Folio and $129 Apple Pencil and even the $799 base model will run you over $1,100 all told. (The 12.9-inch Smart Keyboard Folio is $199.) But these aren’t “just tablets”. They’re tablets, yes, but there’s no just to them. Dollar for dollar, they’re a better value than any MacBook Apple has ever made. They match — and in some areas exceed — the CPU and GPU performance of MacBook Pros that cost $3000 or more. These are serious iPads for serious iPad users.
