Like dogs and cats, Apple and Microsoft have been on this tech fight for two decades. They have been the biggest tech giants that clashes every year in different tech battlefields. But with Microsoft Surface Pro appearing on the surface, Apple seem to take a heavy hit from Microsoft.
Microsoft's Surface Pro rides in the highest hype right now, with Surface Pro 5 coming. Apple, on the other hand, is trying to play the spear game with its iPad Pro. Apple's iPad Pro has seen powerful improvements from iPad, but still, Apple's sales went down 20%. What might be the reason?
Specs-wise, the clear winner according to Know Your Mobile is Microsoft Surface Pro. Apple's iPad Pro is a beast on its own, with 32/128GB of storage ad 64bit A9X/M9 processor. Add 4 GB RAM and iOS 9.1, it is a beasty computing machine.
Surface Pro offers 128/256/512Gb of storage, which is obviously more than what iPad Pro offers. A selection of processors is also available ranging with the mediocre Intel Skylake Core M3 up to its Core i5 and Core i7 version. Surface Pro's RAM is also ranging to 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB and comes with Windows 10. With 512GB storage, 16GB of RAM and Skylake Core i7 as the maximum build, the surface pro is more powerful than some tablet (laptops and desktops) available in the market right now.
iPad Pro comes with iOS 9.1 and Surface Pro comes with Windows 10. iOS 9.1 is a good OS for mobiles and tablets while Windows 10 is designed to be flexible in use. The clear winner here is Windows 10, as it is more functional when a quick laptop or desktop is wanted. According to Auto World News, the Windows 10 OS is capable of running desktop-class apps while iOS 9 does have a lot of apps, but cannot compare to a full desktop OS.
This is where iPad Pro comes in upper hand. Apple iPad Pro starts from $799 and ranges up to $999. On the other hand, Surface Pro sells between $699 to $1499 depending on the build.
But the "perfectness" of a device really depends on the user's needs. It is just that, the user's needs in the tech market right now is a portable and powerful hybrid and Microsoft saw that trend a long time ago and implemented the details on their Surface Pro.
