Apple has announced two new iPad Pro models at its “creativity” event in Brooklyn, New York. The new models promise better performance, Face ID, and a new design
The new design of the iPad Pro sports rounded corners, flat back, flat edges. and the new form factor also trims one millimeter off the thickness, bring it down to 5.9mm, while retaining the same footprint. Although it is the same length and width as its previous iteration, the 2018 iPad’s screen is half an inch bigger.
Then ew iPad Pro sports 11-inch and 12.9-inch LCD ProMotion Liquid Retina Display panels with rounded corners using the pixel masking technology used in the iPhone XR. There’s a big camera bump for the camera, and the LTE version has large antenna lines on the back.
The iPad Pro has moved from Apple’s proprietary Lightning port to USB-C. Apple says that you can use USB-C to drive an external display, connect directly to a camera, or even to charge your iPhone from your iPad.
there’s also now no home button so just face ID but face id that works in any orientation so no matter how you hold the tablet it will unlock which is dope. and new internals so it has a brand new 7 nanometer A12X Bionic chip. It’s a 10-billion transistor SoC with an 8 core CPU and 7 core GPU.The A12X also brings the Neural Engine, Apple’s powerful machine-learning silicon, to the iPad for the first time. The CPU is 35-percent faster than last year’s model and 90-percent faster for multicore processing. Apple said during its presentation that the iPad Pro is as powerful as an Xbox One S. Even with the massive jump in processing power, the tablets still boast a 10-hour battery, just like last year’s models.
There is a 12-megapixel rear camera sensor with improved True Tone LED flash and support for 4K video recording at 60fps on the new iPad Pro. The premium tablet claims to offer the same 10-hour battery life and comes with a bundled 18W power adapter. As for audio, the new iPad Pro models come with a four-speaker setup that houses two woofers and two tweeters offering wider stereo sound. The new iPad Pro models no longer ship with the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Pencil & Keyboard
Apple has also improved the Apple Pencil and the smart keyboard folio. The Apple Pencil now attaches to the iPad Pro magnetically, and it charges wirelessly while connected.
The Pencil also has some new features. You can double tap the side of it to switch between tools in Apple’s Notes app, and third-party app developers have access to that functionality too.
The keyboard is also a little different. It feels the same; it’s definitely not as easy to use as a good laptop keyboard, but it’s fine for light usage. But it attaches at a different point now (on the side), and you can now orient the iPad Pro on it for two different angles—one for your lap, another for your desk.
The new iPad Pro starts at $799 (64GB) for the 11-inch model and $999 for the 12.9-inch size. If you spec it out with 1TB and LTE, the 12.9-inch model runs all the way up to $1,899. you can pre-order one direct from Apple and it will be shipped from November 7.
