The New iPad Pro's Secrets Are Out
Apple's new iPad Pro has undergone the iFixit initiation and the results are rather intriguing. It turns out, the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is modeled on the older 12.9-inch iPad Pro. As iFixit put it, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is just a "scaled down and streamlined version of its 12.9-inch predecessor."
The 10.5-inch iPad Pro actually resembles the 9.7-inch model from the insides, according to the well-known repair community. One of the few differences they found was the Wi-Fi version of the new Apple tablet had plastic blocks placed where the LTE antennas would be in the cellular tablets. iFixit speculated that these blocks were there to support the display assembly. Another difference is that the display cables are now placed at the center of the tablet. This keeps them away from possible damage when the display is being pried open.
As reported by Forbes, iFixit was able to determine that the new iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM which is divided into a couple of 2GB LPDDR4 chips from Micron. It also comes with flash storage courtesy of Toshiba.
As expected, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro scored a low 2 out of 10 in iFixit's repairability rating. Apple used strong adhesives making it difficult to pry off the display, logic board, ribbon cables, speakers, and other parts.
Despite having its big secret revealed, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is still a great tablet. It's slightly bigger than the 9.7-inch model but it doesn't feel that way when you actually use it.
MacWorld also noted its improved responsiveness. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro had zero lag time, particularly when scrolling and using the Apple Pencil. The tech giant's new ProMotion feature also allowed the new iPad Pro to have a faster refresh rate. Previously, Apple tablets could go for 60Hz, the ProMotion lets the 10.5-inch iPad Pro refresh as fast as 120Hz.
The battery of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro lasts for up to 10 hours. MacWorld stressed that its battery life is similar to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro but is way better than the writer's MacBook Pro.
