Australian Review: Apple iPad Pro – Luxury

"This is stupid," said my partner when I first showed her the iPad Pro, "why would anyone want a tablet this big?"

After five minutes doodling with the Apple Pencil, her tone had changed completely.

"Do you have to give this one back?"

My initial reaction was similar; while the iPad Pro certainly has its merits, it's a niche device without a well-defined purpose. It's a little too big to comfortably use on the train, it's a lot more expensive than any other iPad, and it's certainly not the laptop alternative that Apple billed it as. But after spending some time with the iPad Pro, it starts to make sense. Even if you have no intention to purchase either of its accessories, a big screen iPad is a welcome luxury in a world where phones keep getting larger and larger.
