The iPad Pro 2022 and Microsoft Surface Pro 9 are both releasing the week of October 24. This will no doubt be an interesting match-up between Apple and Microsoft’s flagship tablets. While the Surface Pro 9 is marketed as a 2-in-1 Windows laptop, the iPad Pro is a tablet at its core. But since you can purchase a decent detachable keyboard for each, the two devices could potentially stand alongside (or even replace) the best 2-in-1 laptops.

We have enough official information about the iPad Pro 2022 and Surface Pro 9 to gauge their potential strengths and weaknesses. Or to be more accurate, to start determining which of the devices you may want to purchase.
