Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) Review

Score: 9.88/10

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) is a wonderful iPadOS tablet launched in March 2020, provisioned with a very powerful Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2490 MHz, a large 12.9-inches screen, a 12 megapixels back camera and a 7 mega-pixels front facing camera.

Apple is offering the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) in two colors, silver and space gray. Apple has made a great design job making this tablet weight only 22.61 ounces. Talking about its design, this device is mostly created with Aluminum . The iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) is very thin and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.23". Though the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) is only 11.05" long, it is able to fit a a 12.9 inches screen.

This tablet has a interesting 2048 x 2732 12.9-inches screen, giving this tablet device a very nice graphic quality.

Apple decided to power this tablet with a Apple A12Z Bionic APL1083 chip, including a high speed Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2.49 gigahertz and a huge 6 GB RAM memory. The iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) counts with a 128 GB great internal memory and although it doesn't have an external memory slot, it is still enough to store tons of apps, games, pictures and videos without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This tablet offers WiFi connection (but it can't provide it to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A high bandwidth data connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a slower 4G variation) and 3G fast connection type, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This tablet works with a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

The iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) has two cameras, a 12 megapixels back camera and a 7 MP front side camera. The Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) can also film videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 frames per second, and slow motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 240 frames per second (8 times slower ). To complete the camera, it also includes auto-focus and time lapse video.

This tablet features a 9720 mAh huge Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it at all. An issue to take into account is that this device's battery is not replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, though with such a big battery you will probably discard this tablet before that becomes a real problem.

This tablet also comes with a couple interesting characteristics as Facial recognition biometrics and Bluetooth (allows communication with other portable tablets and accessories), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Apple is selling this device for 999 dollars, which is not a really offer for comparing with similar tablets. This tablet is a great option no matter if you will use it as a work portable tablet, want this tablet mostly for social networks and internet browsing, you love taking photographs or will use this portable tablet to play games. Apple packs the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) with USB-C Charge Cable (1 meter) and 18W USB-C Power Adapter .
