Boring tablet space heats up as Microsoft exec says iPad Pro wouldn’t exist without Surface

iPad Pro

Apple's just-released iPad Pro represents a brief moment of excitement in a market segment that is otherwise a terrible bore. Tablets are great devices, of course, but the market is already in decline following the realization that for most people, tablets cannot actually replace either a laptop or a smartphone. That places them squarely in a category with other luxury items; they're nice to have, but they're hardly a necessity.

The new iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad Apple has ever made. In some tests, it's actually more powerful than the MacBook Pro. Apple fans who have purchased the new model appear to be enamored, and they've taken to social media to express their excitement. Even more exciting than the iPad Pro itself, however, are some recent comments about Apple's latest tablet that were made by an executive at Microsoft.

iPad Pro review roundup: A powerful tablet that shouldn’t have been released

Apple iPad Pro Review

If you're still debating whether or not to buy Apple's next-generation iPad Pro, there are two things you should know on Monday morning: 1. iPad Pro reviews have been published, and 2. they're not terribly exciting. If the prospect of diving into a bunch of reviews of consumer tech's most "meh" product segment isn't overly appealing to you, don't worry because we've got you covered with this quick iPad Pro review roundup.

It's not that the new 10.5-inch iPad is boring, it's just that the consumer tablet market hasn't really been exciting since Apple first gave it a shot of adrenaline with the original iPad back in 2010. Tablets aren't like smartphones, and even the most crazed Apple fans out there don't bother upgrading every year like they do with iPhones. Is the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro good enough to warrant upgrading your current iPad, which is probably still functioning just fine? Let's find out.

Apple ‘totally undersells’ the iPad Pro’s new processor

iPad Pro 2017 A10X Fusion Benchmarks

Apple just revived the iPad with the help of some pretty exciting software features shipping in iOS 11 that will make it behave more like a traditional computer when it comes to productivity needs. There’s a file browsing app, support for drag-and-drop, a dock that’s home to more than just a handful of apps, and plenty of new multitasking tricks to name just a few. To power it all up is a brand new processor, the A10X Fusion, that’s supposed to deliver an even better performance than the iPhone 7’s A10 Fusion chip.

Apple, of course, bragged about the new iPad Pro’s chip on the stage, detailing the improvements under the hood. But it turns out that Apple lied. But for once, that's actually good news.
