iPad Pro 2020 Full Review, Specs & Price !!

What the heck is Apple doing with the iPad? 

Great! Because in this article, Apple edges the iPad a little more towards the MacBook end of the spectrum with a new iPad-only flavour of mouse and trackpad support

But just wait until you see the new ultra-wide camera and sensor that Apple also put on the back for some reason. 

Yeah. If you're confused, trust me, we are too. So, let's try to make some sense out of the beautiful mystery that is the 2020 iPad Pro together.  

In our last article about the iPad Pro, we said that Apple wasn't trying to make the iPad Pro more like a computer but rather that they were trying to help the iPad Pro be more useful as a computer with iPadOS specific features. 


They called the iPad Pro a, "new way to take notesmake music, or create a presentation." A worse way for some people, like myself, but for better or for worse a distinctly different way from both a computer and a traditional tablet. And that's not a bad thing. 


In the initial release of iPad OS last year, the iPad got better navigation gestures and some cool features that negated the need for some keyboard shortcuts like pinching you fingers to copy and spreading them to paste. Those kind of optimisations made us think that the iPad Pro might just be a good option for people who have to get work done but are less inclined to sit at a desk hunched over a tiny screen. So then, it's a bit confusing to find ourselves playing with the 2020 iPad Pro running iPad OS 13.4, which now has full-blown mouse and trackpad support. 


Instead of leaning further into the iPad Pro's identity as a unique handheld computing device, it seems like Apple has decided it wants to make the iPad Pro into a bad MacBook after all. They're even released a keyboard folio in May with a built-in trackpad. I mean, they might as well send out an internal memo that goes, 'Microsoft got it right.' Maybe to see where Apple's going we have to take a look at where they've come from. iPad OS pre-13.4 already had mouse support, but the thing is it was buried in the Assistive Touch section of Accessibility options.

it was designed as an Accessibility feature to help disabled people who might have trouble operating a touchscreen rather than a way for every iPad user to easily connect a mouse and go H.A.M. It was a welcome addition but it was not the type of mouse support that a Windows or a MAC OS user would be accustomed to. 

Now, mouse and track pad support has been built in as a core part of the OS. Connect one via Bluetooth or even a USB-C dongle and a small, grey pointer immediately pops up and morphs! Yes, my friends, this is not your tired, old desktop mouse pointer; this is an iPad Pro mouse pointer


The iPad pointer actually adapts to the shapes of things that it selects, which is supposed to make clicking them easier I guess? I don't know. After using it for a while we really can't see an obvious benefit to this feature, but luckily you can just turn it off in the settings. Or, that is, you can turn it off in the Accessibility settings because some of the pointer options are under Mouse and Trackpad in the General settings while the rest are underPointer Control in Accessibility for reasons that continue to elude me. Between the two of them, though, there are most of the options you'd expect, like adjusting pointer contrast, size and colour, changing the tracking and scrolling speed, and you can even assign functions to other buttons on the mouse. Although we were not able to get that last one working properly on an MX Master 2S, so your mileage may very. 



It's definitely not perfect, but overall the user experience with a mouse is a lot better than the last version of iPadOS where the pointer acted basically like a floating finger. Now, you can right-click to bring up context menus and there's support for scroll wheels, although frequent hitches and hangups do make it clear that things have been more optimised for a trackpad or the touch-surface of Apple's Magic Mouse. There are also a number of new gestures that involve dragging the mouse- pointer outside of the screen. Dragging to the right will show or hide Slide Over apps. 

Dragging up to the top right brings down the control center. Dragging up anywhere else brings down notification center. And there's no gesture for dragging to the left for as far as I can tell. But get this: in an app, drag down to bring up the dock, drag down further to go home, drag down again to enter multitasking, we have best move on to the hardware. 


The 2020 iPad Pro is not a big upgrade over the 2018 model. In fact, it is basically the same tablet. While the whole 2020 iPadPro lineup does now come with 6 gigs of RAM and they all get the A12Z Bionic processor, on paper that is essentially the same chip as A12X Bionic that is in the 2018 model with single additional core and GPU bringing the total up to eight

That was actually confirmed by out Geekbench test where we saw very slight increase in multi-core performance, and a lower score on the compute benchmark? You know what, we're just gonna chalk that up to some lack of optimisation in iPad OS 13.4 for now. 


The base model of the 2020 iPad Pro do come with 128 gigs of storage now instead of 64. That is great to see, but the only other major changes to be found on this device are actually in the camera module. In addition to the standard 12 megapixel lens, we now get a new 10megapixel ultrawide lens for all of those people who vlog with iPads. And then next to that, really interesting one that's a lidar sensor. Lidar stands for light detection and ranging, and it works by sending out infrared light then measuring how long it takes for it to hit something and come back. This new sensor is supposed to be a boon for augmented reality content, although in our tests, for the time being, it didn't seem to make AR content on the new iPad Pro any more compelling. 


 All right, iPad Pro 2020 then. Maybe we were wrong when we guessed that Apple's intentions for the iPad seemed like they were championing the iPad Pro as this ground breaking new way for people to do work on the go-- you know, an iPad for pros.
