New iPad Pro Better but not Best Yet


Published Date : Jun 13, 2017

The initial idea of Steve Jobs when he introduced the iPad seven years ago, was to create a product that was between a smartphone and a laptop, which could efficiently carry out tasks such as reviewing photos, browsing the web, and watching videos. Steve’s successor, Timothy D. Cook, decided to take the iPad a step further, when he introduced iPad Pro that had Apple’s stylus and keyboard, five years later, declaring that people will now need nothing but their phones. Not only did this prediction not come true but also, the sales of iPads have only reduced every year. Hence, if you were hoping that Apple’s latest addition, available in size 10.5 and 12.9 diagonal inches will do the trick and eliminate the need to use laptops, then you will be disappointed. The tablet has a few problems and cannot be substituted for a laptop because the keyboard is uncomfortable to type and some tasks are conveniently done with the help of a mouse rather than using the touch screen.                               

Cons of iPad Pro:

Ergonomically, the Apple iPad falls short. The use of touch screen in conjunction with the Apple keyboard can cause a pain in the wrist. Moreover, the smart keyboard is thin and does not well give a satisfactory feeling while typing, and also does not click well. After long duration of typing, the smart keyboard appears to be flimsy!

Pros of iPad Pro:

The new tablet is remarkably faster. It is excellent for intense tasks such as playing heavy graphics games and enables smooth juggling between multiple apps. It is also good for editing high resolution photos. The new iPad Pro also has a higher screen refreshing rate, which gives an impression of a much smoother motion and is clearly evident as you open or close, and scroll through websites and documents. Playing games also seems much better owing to the enhanced screen refresh rate. The increased display size because of the slimming down of the bezel has enabled Apple to make a larger version of its physical keyboard.
