Apple iPad Pro India Launch

Apple has officially launched iPad Pro with iOS 9 in India. While the Wi-Fi model ships in both 32GB and 128GB storage capacities, the cellular variant will be available only with 128GB.

Apple iPad Pro includes 12.9 inches LED-backlit widescreen Multi-Touch display with 2732 x 2048 resolution and 264 PPI, which we hope will enable you to read ebooks easily.

The device also includes fingerprint resistant oleophobic coating, fully laminated display. The core feature of iPad Pro is that it includes an anti-reflective coating. We have seen several anti-glare laptops but not tablets except Kindle.

iPad Pro will ship with A9X 64-bit chipset with M9 motion coprocessor. It will also include both headphone jack and lightning connector.

The device includes 8MP iSight camera with support for Autofocus, IR filter, Improved Face Detection, Photo geotagging and timer mode in addition to Backside illumination.

Moreover, you will be able to capture videos in slow motion at 120 fps with support for image stabilisation. Hence, even if you shake the tab videos, it will render perfectly when viewed.

The Facetime HD camera enables you to capture images in 1.2MP and record videos in HD resolution. It also includes improved face detection with support for burst mode, exposure control and timer mode.

With the help of iPad Pro, you will be able to record audio and video over FaceTime to any FaceTime-enabled devices either via Wi-Fi or mobile network. The new device includes a feature with which you can secure personal data within apps.

iPad Pro will enable you to record voice and embed them within messages in addition to an ability to set reminders. It also includes a digital compass, iBeacon micro-location, sensors such as Three-axis Gyro, Barometer and Ambient light.

The battery is the core part that we focus upon inspection of every product. iPad Pro includes a powerful 38.5 watt-hour rechargeable lithium-polymer battery that can provide 10 hours of browsing via Wi-Fi and media playback.

As mentioned above, iPad Pro includes iOS 9 and it consists of following features:

  • AirDrop
  • AirPlay
  • AirPrint
  • Control Centre
  • Notification Centre
  • Siri
  • Spotlight Search
  • Family Sharing
  • iCloud Drive for storing data and files
  • Multitasking
  • QuickType Keyboard
  • Apple Music

The device will ship with 23 built-in apps and all of them consume only 150MB of total storage space including few free apps from Apple.

Apple iPad Pro will be available in three different color options: Silver, Gold and Space Grey.

We have no official price and availability details yet, however, we contacted Apple and got a response saying the price and availability in India will be made public next week.

  1. Wahhhh!!! The iToy Pro is more expensive than the Surface Pro 4.
    What a rip-off. Sad news for the Indian market.
    Surface Pro 4 128GB/Intel Core i5/4GB of RAM: Rs. 76,999
    Surface Pro 4 256GB /Intel Core i5/8GB of RAM: Rs. 95,999

    The iPad Pro only runs a mobile phone OS and as such has so many limitations. Below is what you get with your iPad Pro – that really has nothing “Pro” about it:
    1. iOS9: A severely deficient mobile phone OS that performs the most basic functions only & completely lacks the power & depth of full-fledged OSs and cannot run any of the powerful 8milion+ desktop apps – it only runs watered-down versions of apps. With the iPad Pro, it’s like having a 1000bhp car that can only do 50mph. You are also stuck with the much dreaded iTunes and closed ecosystem. The limitations of a mobile phone OS are just too many to be listed here; to name a few: no support for multiple users with complete application & file security, no virtual machine support for running multiple OSs simultaneously, no full integration with the robust enterprise applications that drive organisations, etc.
    2. Hardware: Cannot fully support all input device types, incl. mice, trackpads, game controllers, microSD, USB, etc. lower ppi compared to SP4, poor quality keyboard with no trackpad, limited storage (128GB max), etc.
    3. Cost: Offers very little value for money e.g. iPad Pro @ £1,017 (128GB £799 + keyboard £139 + stylus £79) vs SP4 @ £814.98 (128GB CoreM £704.99 + keyboard £109.99 which you could get for £94 + stylus £0) or £958.99 (128GB Corei5 £849 + keyboard £109.99 which you could get for £94 + stylus £0).
