What to choose — iPad Pro 2017 or 2018?

In 2018, Apple seriously upgraded the iPad Pro. This contributed to the superior performance attained by the processor in the Apple A12X, and long battery life, and new form factor. But if he is that good, to abandon the purchase of “Proshka” of the previous generation? As he passes the speed of its predecessor? Let’s find out.

The main advantage of the iPad Pro 2018 compared to the previous generation, of course, is its display. Amazing IPS panel with a diagonal of 12.9 inches and 11 and tending to nothing within is a true admiration for the abilities of the engineers of Apple. Yes, this tablet offers a new display size (modification with 12.9 inch was available for model 2017). In the new model, Apple has given to make the display completely symmetrical, regardless of the TrueDepth system responsible for face recognition.

Heart of the tablet is OCTA core CPU A12X Bionic. It is 90% faster than previous generation, allowing it to be considered one of the most powerful stones for personal computers. If you test models in 2017 and 2018, iPad Pro (2018) will be given 5028 points in single core test and 18181 in multi-core and last model — 3976 points in single core test, in multi-core 9555. It is evident that the Apple has not lied to us, saying about a double performance increase.

Another advantage of the new iPad — a choice of versions with different memory. Even for the iPad Pro with 11 inch display you can select the option of 1 TB of internal memory, but the regular version with 64 GB (including the cellular module) will not go away. If you need a model with a larger screen (12.9 inch), there the Golden mean will become iPad Pro 512 GB (or 256 GB, but with support for SIM cards).

However, such a big gap is observed only in synthetic tests. In real use, there is little difference, and both generations of the tablet show themselves equally well. For iPad Pro 2017 is also available the screen size is 12.9 inches, as well as various modifications — from 256 GB to 512 GB (wifi and SIM card). But he has the advantage — the price. The price of 2017 iPad Pro (12.9 inch) starting from 63 of 499 rubles. If you look at a new iPad, it really worth the almost 92 000. Agree, the difference is not difficult to notice, and your wallet the same opinion.

Wait, but there is a iPad Pro with a screen of 10.5 inches?

For the work of the pencil correspond to the same components as in the older iPad Pro. Therefore, the work should be smooth, soft and realistic.

In addition, the novelty has a powerful processor A10 Fusion, the same chip used in the iPhone 7. The latest processors A11 from iPhone X gets here, as the processors Fusion A10X iPad Pro to the current generation. However, Fusion is also the A10 is a good processor that is still relevant and capable to cope even with complex tasks.

This tablet is suitable for those who do not really chasing power and screen size. However, the 10.5 inch is the size of the iPad screen that will satisfy most users. You can purchase iPad Pro with a screen of 10.5 and 12.9 inches, but more isn’t always better. Many are accustomed to 9.7-inch iPad screen and the screen a little more, so long to adapt do not have to. And what! Do not chase 13 inches, it’s big enough.

But what’s even nicer — this iPad can be purchased at a price of 41 000 rubles for the version with 64 GB of memory.

As for Smart Keyboard is an accessory that is available to owners of iPad Pro and is not available to the owner of the regular iPad. This accessory is expensive, and it is connected through a special connector Smart Connector, which is not in the usual iPad. However, you can buy any other wireless keyboard for iPad and connect it via Bluetooth.
