Apple has always been known to create great devices and probably the best ones ever. however, it has failed to get an extremely good response on the tablet sector.
However, we are sure that Apple seems to have realized this as it has come up with a rather large and better tablet, that is the iPad Pro.
This is the largest iPad released so far and has been equipped with a 12 inch screen.
It also comes with an Apple pencil that can be used as a stylus and a Smart Keybosrd as well. However, these are to be purchased separately and do not come in the box.
Apple is very confident about the fact that the device is going to have the power to perform better than any tablet at all in the market and can rival the power of any laptop or PC.
When we talk about other rival tablets for Apple, thoughts automatically turn towards the Microsoft Surface range that has always been known to be the biggest competitor the Cupertino giant has faced in this sector.
The iPad Pro also has a huge rival in the form of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
But will this device be able to beat its counterpart? Let us analyze what we know about the duo and see which one is the best.
While the surface pro 4 is expected to run on Windows 10, we can see the iPad pro running on the iOS9.
At any given point of time anyone who is not an iOS user would pick the Windows 10 software because it gives you the same experience that you get on the desktop and can run the most complex of applications like AutoCAD, Lightroom or Photoshop.
On the contrary, iOS remains a mobile OS and can support only those applications which are designed to be supported by it.
Now this is quite rare to come by, considering that iOS is not an open source platform and so not many software developers are able to experiment with it.
Another reason why people might prefer the Surface pro tab is the availability of ports.
The Surface Pro 3 came with a USB 3.0 port, a microSD slot and a Mini Display port.
The storage capacity can be expanded this way and you can use it to be connected to up to three monitors at the same time.
This is a big advantage as compared to that of the iPad Pro, which only comes with one lightning connector port and no chance of expanding memory.
The main reason why people will opt for the Surface Pro 4 is the price.
The Surface Pro 3 is currently priced at $699 while the iPad Pro already has a price tag that reads about $799 for the lowest version.
In addition to this, you will have to spend extra for Apple’s pen which will cost $100 and $170 for the keyboard.
On the other hand, the Surface Pro will have the stylus free and the keyboard will cost $130, making it a cheaper version anyway.
