Apple’s latest iPad Pro for 2021 is out now, and we’ve just named the 12.9-inch version the best tablet money can buy. It now takes the crown atop our best tablet and best iPad buying guides.
We haven’t reviewed the 11-inch version of the tablet yet, but we did say the 12.9-inch is the best-in-class product alongside our 4.5-star review of the Slate. Why didn’t he get the five stars? This is mainly due to its extremely high price, which means it won’t be for everyone.
If you’re happy to pay $ 1,099 / £ 999 / AU $ 1,649 or more, you’ll find that the new iPad Pro 12.9 is the best slate you can buy right now. It’s designed for those who need specialized features, so we encourage you to read our full review to make sure it’s right for you.
In our full review, we said, “The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro for 2021 is the best tablet money can buy, with high-end power, a fantastic display, a slew of new upgrades plus small and a complete experience which makes it a must-have for Apple fans and those who want an unmatched tablet experience.
“It’s not for everyone, due to its large size and high price tag, and you might be better served by another more portable and affordable tablet, but make no mistake: it is the best of the best.”
We cited the new M1 chipset as a big highlight, but perhaps the most notable difference from other products is its mini LED display which delivers fantastic picture quality and exceptional brightness levels.
The new iPad Pro 2021 is available today (May 21), but you may not be able to pick up the tablet if you haven’t already pre-ordered it.
Stock appears to be limited at Apple, and many pre-orders over the past few days have found that they have to wait until June to receive their purchase. We’ve rounded up today’s best deals for the tablet below.
