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 trackpa...

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...

The iPad Pro 2020 (12.9 inch) is the best tablet you can buy, with blazing speed, long battery life, improved cameras and trackpad support. But it’s not a great laptop replacement (yet).

- Mark Spoonauer, Tom's Guide

The iPad Pro really feels like it has grown into itself. And with trackpad support coupled with one of the zippiest tablets we've ever tested (it's the fastest iPad by far), this year's iPad Pro is a clear winner. Still, you'll be paying a hefty price, but it's the price you pay for quality, after a...

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.

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.

A refinement on the outside and a supercharge on the inside

from CNN

The iPad Pro really feels like it has grown into itself. And with trackpad support coupled with one of the zippiest tablets we've ever tested (it's the fastest iPad by far), this year's iPad Pro is a clear winner. Still, you'll be paying a hefty price, but it's the price you pay for quality, after all.
