iPad Pro, first video impressions with the most powerful iPad yet

Who said that the 13 inches could not also be for a tablet, in particular, for a huge iPad? iPad Pro has been the new member chosen to attack a market niche that is booming, with models such as Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 in the line of the tablet-convertible . iOS 9 gives life to this new iPad, where the multi-window, as well as the launch of Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil, will be crucial to get the most out of this device.

Today we wanted to look at the YouTube window, to see what were the first impressions of all those lucky media who were able to try out this new tablet live . Bear in mind that the number of people around the products, as well as the impossibility of testing them in depth, will give us a small approach, especially in terms of design, screen and a quick review of its interface and multi-window mode, but enough to keep us talking until the first analyses arrive.

As we are told in the videos, this new iPad looks big, huge , especially because we take the iPad Air or Air 2 as a reference, and this increases even more the feeling of being in front of a product that literally “goes out of hand”. However, with the iPad Air 2 nearly as thick as 6.9 millimetres (amazing) and weighing just over 700 grams , the feeling of being in front of a product that is very light is evident from the very first moment. Let’s bear in mind that the first iPad, or even the iPad 4, weighed close to 660 grams, for a screen 3 inches smaller. Very good work by Apple in this regard.

It is also interesting to note that is well implemented and that the multi-window mode can be accessed with a simple gesture from the right side of the screen to access all the available applications to be located on one of the sides, and with a small gesture on the tab that will be located between the two applications, we can divide the screen as we want, as well as change one of the two applications for any of those that we have open without any problem.

iOS 9, however, looks very little optimized on its initial screen , on the desktops, for a screen of these dimensions. Stretching the screen of an iPhone to a mini iPad, even to a 9.7 inch iPad, may be passable, although not to current date, but doing the same for a 13 inch screen, in my opinion, is something that should be solved as soon as possible. The problem is that the iOS 9 version has just been released, with a confirmed release date and compatible devices, and we’ll have to wait for iOS 10 (or iOS X?) to see if they can really make any changes on it.
