The iPad Pro just came out , leaving us all speechless. The jewel of the bitten apple has just been unveiled, an iPad Pro in the company’s standard size of 9.7″ – they themselves have admitted to the hard work they’ve put into bringing us an iPad Pro of those dimensions. As you might expect at iPadizate we have not remained indifferent and we bring you a comparison between Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 and Apple’s new iPad Pro, who will be victorious?

This rumoured iPad has received numerous names such as Loop, Air 3 or Pro, the latter being the definitive one. The possibility that it was called Loop came into play once the invitation to the Apple event and its catchy phrase “Let Us Loop You In” were spread on the Internet.

This is where the new iPad comes into its own, where Apple is committed to making beautiful, robust and ergonomic devices. If its big brother is, the iPad Pro of 12,9″, this one will certainly be. Apple offers a range of colours that can certainly touch the most innovative side of any user.

In addition, its thinness makes all other tablets stand out. Apple is committed to design, and doesn’t intend to lose.


The screen of the Surface Pro 4 is definitely better than the one of the new iPad Pro, as it has a better resolution, which ensures better sharpness. However, we can’t forget that Apple works very well on its screens and that despite having a lower pixel density, it always achieves incredible results that equal higher resolutions. In addition, the new iPad features technology that adapts the image to the environment .

Something very striking and that we are sure will give us a greater sense of real images .


Microsoft has managed to create a laptop with its tablet, an example of this is that it has solid state storage (SSD) of 128, 256 or 512 GB which undoubtedly exceeds that of the new iPad. In addition, the Surface allows us to connect an external memory and operate with it – a task that Apple drags in and does not implement in its tablet Pro. Apple offers adapters that increase the price of the product.


In the back camera area Apple wins by a landslide – at least technically – as the new iPad Pro has True Tone flash and a higher resolution camera. However, there’s one issue that doesn’t shock: if the iPad Pro is meant to be a working device, why doesn’t it offer a camera with higher video resolution? Which the Surface pro 4 does.
