The iPad Pro comes in three models, including a 32GB for $799, 128GB for $949, and a 128GB model that also includes cellular connectivity for $1,079. This time around, buying the tablet may just not be enough, because it’s a big tablet and Apple is also aiming it as a productivity device, just like the Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4, but it’s not as powerful. This means that to be productive, you will need the Smart Keyboard that will cost you an extra $169, and there is also the Apple Pencil that costs $99. (Optional accessories are also available starting November 11.) While the customers will have to pay premium to get Apple’s own Smart Keyboard, it will be the first cover for an iPad that offers a full-size keyboard. Also, the Smart Keyboard does not connect via Bluetooth, instead it charges and pairs using the three-pin Smart Connector located at the bottom of the tablet.

The Apple Pencil is the other accessory that unlike Surface, it doesn’t come included with the tablet, you will have to purchase it separately, and even more awkward, you have to occasionally recharge it using the Lighting connector. Although, in the real-world the Apple Pencil feels like using a real pencil, it falls shorts to the Surface Pen that includes a tail eraser, a button to call Cortana (in Apple’s case it would be Siri), magnetic attachment, or interchangeable tips. Though, the Apple Pencil does come with the Lightning adapter and extra tip.

If you’re buying the base model of the iPad Pro with the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil, then you’re looking to spend around $1,067, which still a few dollars more than the base model Surface Pro 4 with 128GB, Type Cover, and versatile Surface Pen that costs $1,029, but you’re likely to be more productive with a Surface device (opinion). Who is the iPad Pro for? Apple is specifically targeting business, education, and creative professionals, now that iOS allows users to multitask and the Apple Pencil can help designers and professionals be more productive. So, what do you get with the iPad Pro? The biggest iPad from Apple sports a 12.9-inch Retina Display with a stunning 5.6 million pixels. Under the hood, it’s powered by an A9X Apple processor and 4GB of memory. The company claims around 10 hours of battery life and reviewers are claiming that the battery life lives up to expectations. Now that you have some info about the iPad Pro, let’s dive into the technical specifications.
