Apple iPad Pro 10.5 (2017) Full Specs, Price and Alternative Devices

The new iPad Pro 10.5″ and iPad Pro 12.9″ are the latest upgrade to Apple’s iPad Pro product line. I had one iPad Pro 12.9″ published on this blog back then in 2016 — the 2015 version also known as 1st generation, it was one of the first articles I published here and it was a great one.

What do we have in this 10.5″ new version?? According to Apple, we have a display almost 20% larger than the 9.7 inch model and also some other cools stuffs. There’s no need to go into the 9.7 and the 12.9 inch model now, I’ll be giving them their share of my “real estate” soon.

Quickly though, let’s see everything we can get from this “new” device — yes, the whole shebang.

Alternative Device

There’s not much alternatives. But of course you have the choice to either go for the smaller 9.7″ or the bigger 12.9″. Alternatively, you can go for an older device. But if you feel like switching OS, the Samsung Galaxy Tab s3 9.7″ is close.
