Apple iPad Pro 10.5 unboxing

The latest additions to Apple's iPad Pro line have arrived! Unveiled merely a week ago at the company's WWDC event, the new tablet duo offers considerable improvements in terms of specs, including a new screen with incredibly high refresh rates, a brand new A10X chipset, superior camera sensors, and better integration with Apple Pencil.

Join us as we take the wraps off the smaller, 10.5-inch model which comes as a direct upgrade of last year's 9.7-inch outing. Expect more impressions and the full review over the next few days!

In the box:

  • iPad Pro 10.5
  • USB to Lightning charging cable
  • USB power adapter
  • User manual

If you're interested in seeing what's inside the box of the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro version, feel free to check out our unboxing of the device.

Um no. This display is hands down better, including the 120hz.

No it's not actually. I have both in front of me right now and the Tab S3 display is flat out better. In fact, the ipad pro 9.7 display looks slightly better so far. Maybe it needs some reflections or something because it looks slightly low res or dithered at the moment. Quite disappointing.

They aren't saying that the tab S3's display is literally better just that it looks better to them because they like Samsung's unnaturally saturated displays.

That realy depends on your definition of word tablet. You can actualy work on tablets ... not iPads, thats for sure, but Windows based, that is another story.

What tablets you can work on? The Surface Pro gets officially marketed as a Laptop. And I think you kinda missed the whole iOS 11 features.

but if you have a tablet already, is it going to make you upgrade? does it youtube and internets better?

Yes...and now when you have got a full desktop grade image editor.. Affinity photos...that extra horse power and gorgeous display is definitely needed.

Sure you have desktop grade image editor, just plug in mice ... and ... start working on picture editing, croping ... realy? You will use what to pixel perfect edit your picture? A finger? A stylus without pointer support? I am not saying it can't be done, but it sure is not efective picture processing. BTW i have "old" iPad Pro 12.9, just to clarify ;)

Has anyone with an iPad Pro and sold/given away their PC/laptop because it can do everything they need to?

@POst 12 - He thinks 120hz makes it better. Not of the apps need anything higher than 60hz. If it had a desktop GPU then 120 would be beneficial. If the display was 40"+, then 120hz would be beneficial. 120hz by itself means nothing. Especially on 10.5". Come on man, if you think refresh speed is that big a deal, then you know nothign about displays. I found out the hardware way. I bought a TV with 240hz. I found out that the higher refresh offered no benefit, not even in games, because 120hz was already enough for a display my size. 240hz is needed on something above 90". Refresh rates matter based on screen size and pixel count. So as an example, a high pixel count on a small screen won't gain any benefit, while the same pixel count on a larger screen would,

@6:45 - Youtuber bends the iPad Pro 10.5 like it was made of foil. Just to place in perspective. But anyways, when you compare today's iPad Pro to the Surface Pro 4, which really is never gonna be a fair comparison for lots of reasons. But when you consider the cost where both devices now are close to the same, which gives you more value for the money.
