The newest iPad Pro is finally here and it looks like it's about to kick the Microsoft Surface Pro to the curb. Apple unveiled its new line-up of tablets on Monday at the 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference.
Apple came up with two versions of its new iPad Pro. The first one sports a 10.5-inch display while the bigger model comes in at 12.9 inches. The bigger displays are courtesy of slimmer bezels, a trend that's not likely going away. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro has 40 percent fewer bezels as compared to its predecessor.
The tech giant boasts that its new iPad Pro has the "world's most advanced display." This is possible not only because of the bigger screen size but mostly because of Apple's ProMotion technology. The redesigned Retina Display utilizes the new technology to achieve better responsiveness. In fact, the ProMotion tech makes the Apple Pencil highly responsive with a 20-millisecond latency, the best mark in the industry by far. The ProMotion also provides smoother motion content and a refresh rate of 120Hz for fluid scrolling.
Apple also installed an advanced camera system on the iPad Pro which is the same one used on the iPhone 7. It has a 12-megapixel camera and a 7-megapixel FaceTime HD camera.
Despite the impressive changes to the hardware, what's more intriguing about the new iPad Pro tablets is what's inside them. The iPad Pro's "breakthrough performance" is courtesy of the latest 64-bit A10X Fusion chip. The iPad Pro also comes with a six-core CPU and a 12-core GPU.
BGR also noted that the iOS 11 plays a major part as to why the iPad Pro is deemed a lot better than the Surface Pro and other current tablets in the market. The new Apple operating system has better drag-and-drop features and a bigger customizable app dock that makes multitasking into a whole lot better experience. The iOS 11 also provides more annotations and highly improved split-screen views on the new iPad Pro. Apple's official website also mentions that the iOS 11 allows deeper integration of the Apple Pencil which allows users to experiment with their artistry and creativity.
