At this year’s October event, Apple finally unveiled the iPad Pro following months of relentless leaks and rumors. The new iPad Pro is a significant upgrade over its predecessors with new bezel-less design and a slew of improvements under the hood. In reality, rumors regarding the next iPad Pro had been out there for months prior to the event and most of them are true.
The 2018 iPad Pro marks the first Apple’s tablet with a USB-C port for faster file transfer and 4K HDR video output. This means that the tablet does not have a traditional headphone jack. Apple first ditched the 3.5 mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. And, Apple’s move aimed to make its devices slimmer and lighter.
This year’s iPad Pro is slimmer than its previous models thanks to its smaller bezels and edge-to-edge display. It seems that the new iPad Pro takes a lot of design hints from the iPhone lineup. Besides, Apple added the Liquid Retina Display to its iPad model. For some background, the Liquid Retina Display was first debuted alongside the iPhone XR, allowing for better picture quality.
Apple says that the Pro’s screen supports ProMotion and TrueTone at launch. That’s the same technology we have already seen on the current iPad Pro models. This year’s iPad Pro comes in two screen sizes, including 11-inch and 12.9-inch displays. The 11-inch model shares the same dimensions with the current 10.5 inch iPad Pro, while the bigger model is smaller than its predecessor.
Under the hood, the iPad Pro is powered by Apple’s A12X Bionic chip, allowing for a greater performance. The new tablet can handle all the tasks you throw at it ranging from editing videos to playing some heavy-graphics games. Besides, the tablet features Face ID, which is now faster and smarter. From now on, you can unlock your tablet with a simple glance. Apple says that the new iPad Pro is 92 percent faster than portable PCs out there. In reality, the iPad Pro is designed for pro users who are looking for PC alternatives on the market. This year, Apple is taking big steps to achieve that goal.
