2018’s iPad Pro was the best tablet money could buy — and this one’s even better. Just don’t expect a revolution this time.

Apple’s new 12.9in iPad Pro is among the most powerful on the market right now, with the new A12Z chipset beating just about every competitor in benchmark tests, but it’s also one of the most expensive options in our chart.

Macworld

The 2020 iPad Pro is a fantastic tablet, although you'll find most of its improvements over the previous model in the camera array. This model now has a 10MP ultra-wide lens and a LiDAR sensor for augmented reality—both of which seem like they'd see little use on a tablet.

Android Authority

The Apple iPad Pro (12.9) is a fantastic machine. It may be a bit unwieldy as a lap-based slate, but it takes on a life of its own when paired with a keyboard and other input accessories. The costly tablet easily outshines Android-based offerings and does a fine job of competing with Microsoft's Sur...

Fine-tuning the flagship

The iPad Pro is currently the best tablet on the market. It is extremely fast, its well-calibrated True Tone display is a blessing for creative users, the user experience is tremendously smooth, its four integrated speakers produce excellent stereo sound and the tablet is among the best in terms of the battery life as well.

Apple’s new 12.9in iPad Pro is among the most powerful on the market right now, with the new A12Z chipset beating just about every competitor in benchmark tests, but it’s also one of the most expensive options in our chart. The huge 120Hz 12.9in display is great for graphics design, watching movies and browsing social media, but it’s not until you pair it with the Magic Keyboard that the potential becomes clear.

Mashable

A worthy update for creatives, but still no laptop killer

from Mashable

Based on performance alone, there's no denying the new iPad Pro is the best one you can buy. But with fairly subtle upgrades overall, it's only worth spending money on if you haven't upgraded your tablet in a while.

The 2020 iPad Pro is very much the 2018 model plus added cameras and lidar. It’s a feature that improves AR and may prove transformative down the line. But AR on a tablet remains niche. Instead the big changes are software as part of iPadOS 13.4, which is also available for older models. It makes the iPad Pro more of a full computer replacement than ever.

The 2020 iPad Pro is a terrific tablet that, thanks to features like trackpad support and some under-the-hood tweaks, comes closer than ever to feeling like a traditional computer. It doesn't quite get there because of some inherent iPadOS limitations, but there's enough performance and flexibility here that I've largely been able to leave my laptop to the side. Apart from its new ultra-wide camera and LiDAR sensor, though, the hardware hasn't changed much compared to the 2018 model.

The iPad Pro 2020 doesn't really add any exciting new functionality that will change the majority of users' day-to-day usage. Don't get us wrong, though, the cameras are a nice addition, while the LiDAR sensor holds a lot of future potential. The big win for iPad users is the introduction of trackpad support, but if you've already got a Pro model then you'll have that as a software update anyway. Still, that makes the iPad Pro the perfect platform to use as a true laptop-replacement and on-the-go tablet. It really is unrivalled.

A compelling reason to ditch low-power Windows laptops

While the new iPad Pro is incredibly fast, so was its predecessor. As tablets go, they’re incredibly nippy and will run rings around weaker rivals but given their price, you’d expect them to. There comes a point where you wonder how powerful a tablet needs to be, and Apple are clearly treading that line by trying to power-up the iPad Pro to make it a viable contender to a Windows laptop for the agnostic would-be buyer. The problem is how that translates price-wise when an iPad Pro is already more expensive than many Windows-running laptops.
