Surface Pro 3 vs iPad Pro: What Apple's copied, what it does better

Mark Hachman | Sept. 10, 2015
A keyboard and stylus. Whoa, Apple. But its real advances give us more to think about as we look ahead to the Surface Pro 4.

The display boasts a higher resolution than the Surface Pro 3 as well: 2732x2048 pixels versus the 2160x1440 display offered by the Surface Pro 3. The battery life is a tad higher: 10 hours, versus 9 hours for the Surface Pro 3. Apple even showed off multitasking, dividing the screen between two different windows that could run different tasks.

For now, the iPad Pro's hardware specs are arguably a tad superior to the Surface Pro 3's. But while Apple may claim to have “reinvented” the idea of a productivity tablet with the iPad Pro, Surface owners know where Apple found its biggest ideas. We expect Microsoft to one-up Apple yet again with the Surface Pro 4.
