Apple iPad Pro 11 (2018) Review – Specs, Features & Price

Apple has finally unveiled two super swish new iPad Pros (11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad) that comes with a whole lot of new features that really look amazing for creatives.

Apple stated, and in the words of Tim that they were “going to push what we can do on iPad, or any computer any further.” The two new iPads (11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros) which were announced on October 2018 comes with a new look and a premium design that is targeted at reducing their bezel size, update and refurbish the user experience. The new Apple iPad Pro 11 is going to go sale 7th November.

With all that being said, let’s take a look at the design of the Apple iPad 11-inch model for 2018.

Design

The new Apple iPad Pro 11, comes with a totally new design. Apple has been able to intensively refurbish its 2018 Pro lineup, and it seems to be a major upgrade just like iPhone X was in way back in 2017.

The new Apple iPad Pro 11 does not feature an all-screen, but it comes with a very small amount of bezels. The new Apple iPad Pro 11 did not come with a home button and now uses the Face ID instead of the usual Touch ID. It also has a curved display at the corners, which enables the screen to draw a lot closer to the edges. Apple called the new display ‘Liquid Retina’, although the pixel density remains the same just like the one featured on the 2017 10.5inch iPad.

There was a statement by Apple asking us to actually expect great things from the screen because the screen gives us the same pixel masking like that of the iPhone XR, and now comes with a new design backlight. Also, the new Apple iPad Pro 11 comes a little bit slimmer and it’s now 5.9mm thick, which is a fractional shaving from the 6.1mm on the 10.5in model. The new Apple iPad Pro 11 features just two colors, which are Silver and Space Gray.

The new 11 inches Apple iPad comes with a newly introduced Apple pencil, that features a magnetic connector, that charges wirelessly and also attaches neatly to one edge of this device.

The Lightning port has finally been ditched and replaced with a USB-C connector. This will enable this device to be more versatile when using it with third-party accessories (and this allows them to charge outwards, in other for you to charge an iPhone from your iPad). Though the new development may not be too favorable to those who already have Lightning headphones and docks and are already used to them.

Camera

The Apple iPad Pro 11 comes with a 12MP f/1.8 aperture rear camera and a 7MP for the FaceTime f/2.2 front-facing camera just like we see in the iPhone 7. Even the Apple iPad Pro 11 images that were taken and its quality resembles that of an iPhone 7, and the 11-inch large display helps to give a better viewfinder.

You can shoot videos at 4K resolution with the Apple iPad pro 11 rear camera and 1080p with the selfie camera. The new Apple iPad does not feature optical image stabilization, and there is also no dual-lens camera on an iPad just yet.

Performance

Apart from the beautiful design that the new iPad Pro 11 features, one of the main difference between Apple’s new 11-inch iPad Pro from the old 10.5-inch iPad Pro and 9.7-inch iPad is its processors. The new 11-inch iPad Pro uses the A12X Bionic chip, which is the most current Apple chip and is found in all of Apple’s latest iPhones. This simply means that the new 11-inch iPad Pro is going to be extremely fast in performance with apps. You’ll be wowed to see a 7-core Apple designed GPU which is said to offer “Xbox One S level” graphics.

The Application on the new 11-inch iPad Pro has been greatly improved as a result of the most current Apple chip and also, Apple has been able to work hand-in-hand with Adobe to come up with a new version of Photoshop for iOS that is far more similar to the full-fat desktop app than before.

The new Apple iPad Pro 11 comes with the most current generation Neural Engine and an installed machine learning solutions and features, such as a new fast storage controller that is going to allow Apple give it 1TB of storage without giving away the read/write speeds. The Apple iPad Pro 11 is going to be sold in different storage options, 64GB, 256GB, 512GB, and Gigabit LTE.

Battery

The iPad Pro 11 comes with a large, 10,307mAh battery which Apple claims will last for 10 hours. That’s the same figure they quoted for the iPad Air 2. We carried out a text on the battery, we streamed Netflix for three hours at a viewing level of 60% brightness and the Apple iPad Pro 11 battery had 30% discharged. Thus you can have approximately 10 straight hours of video streaming from it.

Other Features

  • FM ~ No,
  • 3.5mm Jack ~ Yes,
  • Expandable storage ~ No.

Apple iPad Pro 11 (2018) Price

  • The 64GB storage will cost about $799 (290,037 Niara),
  • The second which is the 256GB storage will cost $949 (344,487 Niara),
  • the third which is 512GB will cost $1,149 (417,087 Niara),

Verdict

The Apple iPad pro is an attractive tablet with an exceptionally good screen, Smart and comfortable Keyboard, great speakers and long battery life, but it’s also expensive and doesn’t completely deliver a laptop-replacement experience on every level. But if you fall under the categories of those who love to combine portability and big screen, then the Apple iPad pro is for you.
