Apple iPad Pro 2020 Review

The iPad Pro 2020 is the best tablet money can buy, with blazing speed, long battery life and (finally) mouse support. But can it replace your laptop?

The iPad Pro 2020 (12.9 inch) wants to be more than a quasi-computer. Up until now, the iPad Pro has was been more like a tablet on steroids, beating a lot of laptops on speed and battery life but certainly not on computing comfort.

The new iPad Pro is a lot more evolved. iPadOS now fully supports cursor input, and there’s a new (pricey) Magic Keyboard with a trackpad and satisfying scissor switches.

The iPad Pro 2020 (12.9-inch) also ups the ante in the performance department with a new A12Z Bionic chip with an 8-core graphics engine, a new dual camera system that includes an ultra-wide lens and a LiDAR scanner that offers a more responsive augmented reality experience.

But make no mistake. As you’ll see in our full iPad Pro 2020 review, the iPad is still a touch-first device, and it will take time for developers to optimize their apps for trackpad input. Overall, this is one of the best tablets ever made, and the closest Apple has come to making a laptop replacement.
