At first glance, the iPad Pro is completely crazy. A giant iPad with all the limitations of iOS, coupled with added bulk that makes it harder to tote, and a price tag that starts at Rs. 70,000, all make it a hard sell. Apple expected that can occupy the market again with its new iPad Pro. But now the result is not as satisfying as expected.
Today, we will check out the the new features, specs, highlights, pros and cons of iPad Pro to see if you will like to help Apple to fix the situation. Are you willing to pay $949 for this Apple’s super big tablet?

The Main Pros of iPad Pro
Pro 1: Super Big Screen and High Resolution Display
Getting into specifics, the Pro is 12.0 x 8.7 x 0.3 inches (306 x 221 x 7.0 mm), which makes it 4 inches wider, and 3.3 inches taller than the Air 2. iPad Pro is the biggest iPad for Apple. What’s more, the Pro’s display is 2732 x 2048. So if you love iPad and movies, iPad Pro will be a ideal choice. Of course, provided that you can accept its price tag listed above.
Pro 2: iOS 9
iOS 9 introduced side-by-side multitasking, allowing two applications to be shown on the screen simultaneously, and the iPad Pro takes full advantage of this feature. It’s an ideal platform to, for example, have an Excel spreadsheet open next to a Word document or email.
Pro 3: Accessories
The Pro is the first device with Apple’s Smart Connector, so keyboards can be attached to one edge of this tablet to power the accessory. Keyboards that use the Smart Connector will never have to be charged, and there’s never any delay in typing — Bluetooth keyboards shut themselves off after a few minutes of not being used in order to save their batteries, and waking them up takes a few seconds.
Pro 4: Processor
As top 2015 tablets, iPad Pro receives an edge in the performance and data processing speed with the new comer A9X clip with 64-bit architecture and M9 motion coprocessor. It delivers up to 1.8 times the CPU performance and double the graphics performance of A8 in iPad Air 2. In fact, as the bigger, productivity-oriented iPad for the mobile worker, it makes sense that users will enjoy extra iPad Pro advantages in it’s new improved processor.
Pro 5: Battery life
Apple claims the iPad Pro will last for 10 hours (of video play or web use) between charges; that’s pretty much standard for Apple tablets, and exactly the same as is promised for the iPad Air 2. The company is generally scrupulously honest when stating battery life for its devices – if anything they tend to be an underestimate – but we naturally put this to the test as as we got hold of a review sample.
The Main Cons of iPad Pro
Con 1: Higher Price
Considering that the entry level iPad Air 2 currently costs $399, iPad Pro is available at higher prices, as high as $799. Comparing to an Android competing device with the same size from Samsung or Microsoft, iPad Pro has disadvantages for charging for an extra $50 to $150.
Con 2: A bigger screen isn’t always better
The Pro has plenty of screen space to work with — nearly two standard-size iPads side by side. Photos, video and magazines come to life on the larger screen. But in other respects the Pro doesn’t make the most of the extra space. You can’t, for instance, display more apps on the home screen. And when you open apps, often enough they’re just blown up to fit the larger screen.
Con 3: less expandability
The iPad lacks a USB port, though you can buy an adapter. And it’s designed for one user. Many other tablets and laptops support profiles, so many people can share a device with separate settings and even restrictions for children.
Con 4: Pixel Densities
There a similar difference in resolution: the Pro’s is 2732 x 2048 while the Air 2’s is 2048 x 1536. An important thing to keep in mind here is that while the resolutions are different, the pixel densities are the same, as both models have 264 pixels per inch. This mean that while one has a much larger screen area, the quality of the screens are almost identical.
Generally speaking, the Pro is designed primarily to extend the iPad’s touch-optimized experience to office use; as part of that compromise, it just can’t do everything a Mac can. So you can be disappointed and consider it a laptop-wannabe — or you can look on the bright side and think of the Pro as a giant iPad with benefits.
