2018 11 "iPad Pro Review: Can this computer be replaced by this computer?

We've put Apple's new 11-inch iPad Pro through its steps in a few weeks. Here is our review of this new "computer".

2018 newsflash: I have not upgraded the iPad since 2013. That's right, I currently have a ghetto iPad Air that our child has taken ownership of ( keywords: borrowing that way I can take it away ) probably since 2015. Since then, I have not used iPad Air at all, depending on iPhone for my media usage in the night or MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

So on this 11-inch iPad Pro review, I feel like I'm new to iPad and iOS again. With changes in iOS for iPad Pro, we now have new iPhone X moves to go with traditional multitasking, splitview and more. With this in mind, let's get this review started.

Unboxing 11-inch iPad Pro

iPad Pro is free, beautiful. There is no other way to put it on. This aluminum slate with rounded corners is so thin and feels great to hold. Apple beats a home office with design, despite the camera's backstroke.

Being so beautiful also means that iPad Pro is smooth with aluminum back and sides. Get a case and be careful about your new expensive tablet … wrong … computer. Below you can see the new Smart Connector area that attaches to the Smart Keyboard Folio:

This is the place where the second generation Apple pencil attaches to and charges wirelessly:

A closer look at the rear camera pump. I can not wait to try this iPad Pro as a camera at the next wedding or public gathering while in the front row (#iwillnotbejudged):

Below we will see the first USB- C-port on an iOS device:

In the box you get the iPad charger, USB-C charger cable and a new 18W AC adapter (which is not available to anyone else for to buy-for now). Apple sticker is still there and quick start guide. Nothing really new here.

We've also collected Smart Keyboard Folio and Apple Pencil to complete the precious trio.

 IMG 0988 [19659002] Smart Keyboard Folio is very thin and will not make your iPad Pro so much thicker. It's a cutout for iPad Pro's rear camera and flash. Here are some 11 "iPad Pro with Smart Keyboard Folio from the sides and backside … errors in front:

Smart Keyboard Folio has two viewpoints. I wish it was a third angle , when I find the desk angle, I have slouched over like in the back of Notre Dame because of my higher torso.

Also at the steepest angle, it results in the iPad being heavy again and can actually fall backwards while in a trapped or uneven surface:

Here's "I'm working on a desk on a computer" Angle:

The edge magnets on iPad Pro are very strong. They attach to the Smart Keyboard Folio with a safe and satisfying click The edge magnets are so strong that they can loosen the back cover when they open and close.

Smart Keyboard Folio on the 11 "iPad Pro is too small for my fair big hands. My hands feel cramped when you write and my wrists get hurt. But the keys feel nice when writing and are relatively quiet, as I'm sure is appreciated if you are a fake news, starving student writing notes in the class. I wonder about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and keyboard would go better (fine, I ordered it too).

When you hold iPad Pro with the keyboard resting on the board … err … the computer's back, you're feeling keys and the keyboard itself. The keyboard does not affect the text input, unless it is in angled position, but it feels nice to keep the case and iPad in this way.

When you hit Smart Keyboard Folio, the keys and other gross remnants (like bacon bits and chips from the lunch) hit the screen when it's closed. I'm curious how this will last for the long term. If you're worried about scratching your precious screen, buy a screen saver.

Also, I'm familiar with how to properly open Smart Keyboard Folio. My brain has been trained to open the cover like the old Smart Cover when I see the hill on top. But in this case, if you do this, separate Smart Keyboard Folio from the back of iPad #wakeupbrainorillstabyouwithaqtip.

One more thing – a backlit keyboard would be nice and it is sad that it is not available considering the price paid.

Generally, using an iPad with keyboard, it is much better than writing on a touchscreen.

Apple pencil is the new mouse [19659006] For the second generation Apple pencil, it has a good weight on it and securely attached to magnets on the side of iPad Pro, where it also takes up wirelessly. The Apple pencil process is like connecting AirPods-it's seamless. Just attach the Apple pencil to the side of iPad Pro and voila.

As for the use of Apple pencil, I'm not an artist or cartoon wannabe, so I did not use much for sketch and drawing, but it's fun for the kids to play with. The new touchpad on the flat page lets you switch to an eraser or another drawing tool. It works well, but I did not use it much.

But as a mouse replacement, using the Apple Pencil to navigate reduces arm load, since you do not have to raise your arm so much to navigate. Aside from being an expensive finger extension, I do not know what I want it for, except for drawing pins men all day in the Paper app.

Here's my first drawing since class 5. Your Apple Pencil sketches are not even on my level son (yes it's a firepowder).

A12X Bionic-Feel the Booooom

Now you may have heard the hardware inside this iPad Pro is ridiculous. A12X Bionic beats Geekbench benchmark score of Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro. All in all, everything is fast, while ProMotion results in the display being buttery smooth.

With so much power in iPad Pro hardware, there must be some software to try it. We know it's possible to edit and export 4K video to YouTube, while Adobe says that "real" Photoshop for iPad comes in 2019.

Using iPad Pro as a MacBook Pro Workflow Replacement

Usually, the desktop workflow by MarsEdit to write article draft, upload to WordPress, make changes, and then publish.

On iPad Pro, the WordPress iOS app does not offer as many features and options versus MarsEdit, or uses the WordPress Admin user interface online. Inserting images never looked like they were too big and had to change. Pasting links takes too long. Changing permalink requires editing online. Resize and watermark images are not as easy as it is on MacBook Pro.

So was iPad Pro able to replace MacBook Pro for work? Sort of, but not really.

At the beginning, one of the biggest grips is to choose text and add hyperlinks to text. It's elusive on iOS. Also without external mouse support, highlighting and editing text is boring, even with Apple pencil. For any time-sensitive work, iPad Pro only takes too long for MacBook Pro. Even with the text highlighted tricks below, it's still time consuming on iPad Pro.

Men What I liked with iPad Pro was for writing reviews, notes and doing easy work that was not time-sensitive. iPad Pro makes the job fun with the interaction involved. By using the MacBook Pro, I do not allow myself to relax as much as an iPad Pro-can. Consuming media and browsing online with iPad Pro is only better than using Mac because apps and interfaces make it feel less like work (I think of Steve Jobs as a lounger in a chair reading New York Times with first-generation iPad on stage back in 2010.

When it comes to "real work" and I have to choose between iPad Pro and MacBook Pro? The hands down I want to take MacBook Pro in the heart. But for streaming media usage blended with casual work on the page, iPad Pro can do wonders.

iPad Pro is missing. Well, it does not accept USB C storage drives, but I can not remember the last time I plugged into a MacBook Pro hard drive. , since most of my documents are in the cloud. But for those requiring file access on a physical hard drive, this is a lack of competing products like Microsoft's Surface Pro.

Overall, I've spent time with iPad Pro , but it felt like a gigan tic iPhone in 2018. I was able to do the same work-related tasks as I wanted on iPhone XS Max, but in a simpler and beautiful form factor.

Hands down, consumer media and doing internet-related stuff on iPad Pro is a pleasure. This is the most expensive iPad (except a 12.9-inch iPad Pro) to surf on Facebook or to search on Google. It is definitely a luxurious product people.

Face ID works incredibly well in both portrait and landscape. I am surprised at how good it is for a 1.0 launch on the iPad. I stop accidentally covering the camera when I hang on the iPad Pro side, resulting in Face ID failing. This is something we must live with too thinly.

When unlocking iPad Pro with Face ID, you can glide from anywhere on the lock screen – not just where the visual line is. Once you have connected Smart Keyboard Folio, double-click the spacebar to authenticate and skip the resurgence.

Battery life is good

In my time used with iPad Pro, battery life and standby were decent. Apple announces 10 hours of battery life. On the first day of my casual tests, I removed iPad Pro from a full charge at 8:30. Twelve hours later in the evening, the battery was down 87% after some light usage.

By day two at 9 am I had a 59% battery. By day three, the battery finally decided to beat 1% at noon at 18:20. Total screen time spent every 15 hours according to screen time. I did not religiously perform a battery test, but I could use it for several days without charging. I would not be able to do that with the MacBook Pro.

For the headphone jack, it does not exist on iPad Pro this year, well because- # against. You think there would be room to hold the 3.5mm connector, but not according to Apple. You can better hedge funds for AirPods already.

Conclusion: iPad Pro is a luxury product, but can not replace the MacBook Pro

Apple says that iPad Pro and iPad are generally a computer. Yes, it is definitely dependent on who you are talking to. If the Aunt Jemima needed a simple email machine, Internet device, media player and more, a regular iPad is the way to go. By adding "Pro" to the name and increasing the size and price, does it actually change the functionality of the tablet? Yes, the hardware is quite impressive, but iOS still holds iPad Pro. There is no way that this can replace the MacBook Pro when I need hard work and will not waste half of the time to mark text correctly.

iPad Pro is not cheap ($ 999 64GB iPad Pro + $ 239 Smart Keyboard Folio + $ 169 Apple Pencil = $ 1408 plus tax, $ 1576.96 in BC). It's expensive compared to smaller iPads and other tablets, but you get some beautiful and flaming fast hardware. At this price you can also buy a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro. But when it comes to iPad Pro, it's still a fun device to relax with after working hours.

This review took me longer than expected to write (also because 90% of it was written on this iPad Pro). I was not sure how to describe the iPad Pro experience this time, after using an iPad Air from the past. What I can say is iPad Pro feels great to use and I can do easy work on it. The hardware and display are "top drawer", especially for media consumption. But for me, real work can be done much faster on MacBook Pro.

IOS 12 is not yet there for me when it comes to a full time work machine, since iPad Pro is just there to fill holes in between my iPhone XS Max and MacBook Pro. That said, I have not been able to put this thing down (that's before my 12.9-inch comes).

How do you like 2018 iPad Pro?
