Final Opinion


The Apple iPad Pro 2020 is truly an amazing product but with just as an amazing price tag. The lowest costing model comes at the value of Rs.68,305, which for an Apple product is understandable but still normal folks just won’t be able to afford such a costly product. The fact that you would have to buy the Apple Pencil (2nd generation) and the Magic Keyboard as an add-on (which with both combined will cost you up to Rs.30, 000), to get a better experience is slightly displeasing. You can buy a laptop with great configurations in that amount.

But combined with the add-ons, the experience is truly amazing. It gives you the experience of a laptop but still maintaining the charms of a tablet. The camera quality is also amazing and will give you an experience of an iPhone. The processor and Operating System are of great quality as well. There is no specific problem that could be found with this amazing iPad, other than the cost and the need to buy the add-ons separately. If you are an Apple fan then this product is definitely a must buy and even if you aren’t, then this product might just change your perception.
