As of today, Apple’s latest iPad Pro is out in stores and some owners out there are already checking them out. A Benchmark test confirms that the all-new 2017 iPad Pro is nearly as powerful as the brand-new Apple MacBook Pro. In fact, the latest iPad Pro could literally be faster compared to the 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro even with a Core i7 processor.
Apple’s genuine tablet can’t do all the things the MacBook Pro does. This simply mean that the operating system or iOS of the iPad Pro is still trailing behind Apple's macOS on the MacBook Pro. However, iOS 11 brings a lot of exciting features to the iPad, as well as the iPhone. Therefore, the answer to the question "can the iPad Pro replace the MacBook Pro" is a no.
According to BGR, synthetic benchmark tests tell an interesting result. The mobile CPU and GPU used in Apple's iPhones and iPads can nearly match the performance of the chips from Intel which are found in MacBook Pros. That is a very interesting prospect for the future since the Cupertino-based company will continue to improve its A-series chips. In fact, Apple is rumored to be working on its private GPU designs.
BareFeats Blog put the latest Apple's tech products through the same benchmark tests. Based on the results between the 2017 iPad Pro and the 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro, it was discovered that the tablets are ready to give some remarkable performance, especially on the graphics side. Here is the result:
Apple's latest iPad Pro is, indeed, a very great gadget. In fact, according to Business Insider, the 2017 iPad Pro could not just beat the 2017 MacBook Pro but also the 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro. However, despite iPad Pros' incredible performance, Apple's current mobile operating system, which is iOS 11, adds some key features to the iPad, as well as iPhone, that makes it function more like the Apple's MacBook Pro laptop than ever before.
