I acquired the 11-inch iPad Pro for review. The only difference between it and the 12.9-inch version is screen size. Even the pixel density is the same across both models, at 265 pixels-per-inch. Quite simply, one is bigger than the other, and you must decide which suits your needs best. The larger model will probably be better for artists and anyone seriously intending to work using the iPad, but it may also feel a little too big for watching video in bed or general use around the home, which I have found works better on the 11-inch version.
The iPad Pro’s Liquid Retina IPS screen measures 11 inches and has a 2388 x 1668 pixel resolution, Apple’s ProMotion 120Hz technology, True Tone colors, and 600 nits of brightness. The iPad Pro has been the ideal video partner, thanks to not only to the wonderfully calibrated screen, but also the wealth of media apps available.
Software and productivity
The iPad Pro 2020 comes with iPadOS 13.4 installed. This brings various enhancements to iOS 13 that were released at the end of 2019 and first brought the tablet closer to becoming a laptop alternative. Under normal use, it feels just like the iOS on which it’s based, just better-suited to the larger screen with the slide-up Dock menu and other tweaks. Multitasking has been greatly improved, and there are now two ways to use more than one app.
