Pros of iPad Pro
Most of the users think that iPad Pro is much better than the normal computers in the market because it is more powerful with all the latest features and if you buy iPad Pro with Wi-Fi and cellular (LTE), you can be connected to the internet anywhere. You don’t need to turn on the hotspot every time. With the split view and slide over feature, users think that it is a multi-tasking gadget.
Large laptops, according to the users of this gadget, doesn’t fit well in a packed conference room. Carrying a bulky laptop for client presentations is not at all comfortable. On the other hand with the iPad Pro, you not only carry a comfortable gadget but you are also able to refer all the needed documents without hassle. It is an elegant meeting partner that lets you read as well as annotate documents as you are in engaged in an intensive discussion with your clients. Thanks to its dual screen angles with Smart Keyboard.
Cons of iPad Pro
On the other hand, if we talk about the cons of this particular gadget, managing files is still a problem in iPad Pro. Just try to rename a file since you will not be able to use a right click on it. Moreover, it lacks a desktop-grade browser which means whenever you open up a website in the iPad Pro’s browser, it will end up in opening a mobile version rather than a desktop version. Moreover, you always get frustrating reminders that will ask you to download the applications whenever you surf the websites.
The other negative point is the missing of USB Type-C which surprised most of the users which mean they can’t connect an external hard drive, printer or directly connect iPad Pro to external monitor but unfortunately though, it has been crippled. Even if you connect iPad Pro with a monitor, you will be surprised to find that it only mirrors the iPad’s display and doesn’t cover the whole of the screen of monitor. Moreover, there is a problem of using third-party applications in iPad Pro and this comes out to be a problematic restriction that doesn’t allow the users to make any changes to the default apps.
