Expert review

Apple’s biggest and most advanced iPad (released in 2021) yet should be the crème-de-la-crème of tablets. With the M1 processor capable of loading just about anything in the blink of an eye and a supposedly stunning liquid retina XDR display, it’s a versatile tool that has something for everyone. It’s costly though, as tablets the size of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro don’t come cheap. So has Apple done enough to justify that high price? Here's our review.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What is it?
  • How fast it is?
  • What’s it like to use?
  • What’s the screen like?
  • How good are the speakers?
  • How long does the battery last?
