Apple has just introduced the new iPad Pro. The new iPad Pro has a 10.5-inch screen, while maintaining the nearly same dimensions as its 9.7-inch predecessor. Obviously, that means Apple has shrunk down the bezels on the new iPad. That’s a 20 percent larger screen with noticeably thinner bezels, and the tablet weighs in at just 450 grams.
Alongside the introduction of 10.5-inch iPad Pro (replacing 9.7-inch iPad Pro), the 13-inch model will also get true tone displays with 600 nits brightness, in addition to that they’ll be able to handle HDR-videos.
Plus, Apple is increasing refresh rate to 120hz, which will essentially double the animation frames, making scrolling and animations on various designing applications feel very smooth.
The new iPad Pros will preserve battery life by automatically adjusting their display refresh rate based on what you’re looking at. For example, if you’re watching a high frame-rate movie or using a drawing software, then you will get the full 120hz refresh rate. If you’re looking at still images, it’ll drop down to a much lower refresh rate like 30hz.
The new iPad Pros are powered by a new six-core A10x CPU, which has 30 percent faster processing power than the A9x.
Battery life will still be around 10 hours, and keep the same 12 megapixel rear camera and 7 megapixel rear camera as the last generation.
And, Apple is doubling the iPad Pro base model storage to 64GB which double than the previous iPads.
The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro starts at $649 (Rs. 42,000), with the big 12.9-inch model starting at $799 (Rs. 52,000), and both models will start shipping next week. However, the company has yet to provide details related to launch of the new iPad Pros to other markets like India.
In terms of software the new iPad Pro got the biggest update for an iPad by Apple. The iPad Pro will now have a new dock with updated app-switching that shows way more apps at once.
Finally, the iPad Pro now supports drag and drop among the new features also introduced with the new iOS 11, which be available to download for free this fall.
Lastly, The iPad is also getting a file browser called Files, which lets us manage the files in our iPad, put them in folders, adding tag to them, it is like the mac style file browser with all the basic functionalities required for file management and it also integrated itself to third party cloud storage services too.
