The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is really big. It’s 12.04 by 8.68 by 0.27 inches and about 1.5 pounds; it weighs a few ounces more with the almost-mandatory Smart Keyboard case.
The extra 2.4 diagonal inches of the screen gets you an extra 1.9 million pixels of real estate, at the same 264 pixels per inch that all modern iPads display. That’s especially useful for dual-window—or, with iOS 11, triple-window—multitasking. In addition, the True Tone display is supposed to optimize colour temperature to be more compatible with ambient light. The iPad Pro is also the first tablet with a 120Hz refresh-rate display, which is supposed to make everything smoother and more fluid.
Benchmarks on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro are even better than we saw on the 10.5-inch model; this is simply the most powerful iOS or Android device we’ve ever seen. The Apple A10X processor is not only nearly twice as fast as the 2017 iPad, it gets web browsing benchmark scores that almost triple.
Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro model comes in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage models, with only about 8GB used by system files. It comes with just a headphone jack and a Lightning port, which will drive most laptop users insane. You just have to use cloud or dock.
Battery life is not as much as other iPads, which typically score in the five-to-six-hour range with their screen brightness turned all the way up. The 12.9-inch model clocked in at four and a half hours because the screen is so large.
The 12.9-inch Pro has a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel front camera. Good camera for a large screen size tablet, well-done Apple
