Apple introduced the new iPad Pro today at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House. Apple says it is the “Biggest change to iPad since iPad”. It includes an all-screen design with Liquid Retina display, Face ID, A12X Bionic chip, USB-C, Smart Keyboard Folio, and a redesigned Apple Pencil. Check out their new iPad Pro commercial below.
Here’s how Apple describes the New iPad Pro, Pencil and Keyboard:
It’s all new, all screen, and all-powerful. Completely redesigned and packed with our most advanced technology, it will make you rethink what iPad is capable of. And what a computer is capable of.
The new all-screen design means iPad Pro is a magical piece of glass that does everything you need, any way you hold it.
With new, intuitive gestures, getting around is simple. Just swipe up to go Home.
The new Liquid Retina display goes from edge to edge. True-to-life color and ProMotion technology make everything look gorgeous and feel responsive. You’ve got to see it — and touch it — to believe it.
Face ID comes to iPad. It’s engineered for secure unlocking and works seamlessly whether you hold it in portrait or landscape. It’s the world’s most secure facial authentication in a tablet. And in a computer.
Use Face ID to unlock your iPad Pro, log in to apps, and pay with a glance. It’s one password you can’t forget.
A12X Bionic is the smartest, most powerful chip we’ve ever made. It has the Neural Engine, which runs five trillion operations per second and enables advanced machine learning. Translation: It’s faster than most PC laptops.
Put all that power to work by multitasking with just a few swipes. Work on a creative project, message with a friend, search the web for inspiration and make a FaceTime call. All at the same time.
A12X Bionic delivers 2x faster graphics.2 Which makes iPad Pro the perfect machine for augmented reality and a great way to play immersive games. Reality just got really fun.
Introducing the New Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard
Apple Pencil now responds to your touch. With a double tap, you can quickly change brushes or switch to the eraser, without interrupting your flow.
And it attaches magnetically to pair and charge. In other words, it’s a snap.
And There’s More…
The all-new Smart Keyboard Folio provides a great typing experience and elegant front and back protection. We think it’s just your type. (Sorry, we had to.)
USB-C gives you a high-performance connection to accessories like an external display or camera. You can even charge your phone with it.
iPad Pro has two great cameras equipped with Smart HDR. A 12MP camera great for stunning photos, 4K video, document scanning, and AR experiences. And a TrueDepth camera perfect for Portrait selfies, FaceTime, Animoji, and Memoji.
At just over a pound, it’s more portable than ever. Connect on the go with fast Wi-Fi and Gigabit-class LTE. And with up to 10 hours of battery life.
That’s a look at the new iPad Pro. It’s the biggest change to iPad since iPad.
