Apple has announced the new iPad Pro on its October event. The iPad Pros get a major redesign with larger displays and better internals. As usual, the iPad Pros come in two screen sizes, 11-inch and 12.9-inch.
The most noticeable change for the iPad Pros is the much slimmer bezels on all sides. The home button is completely removed, replaced by the iPhone X’s gesture controls. This allows an 11-inch display to fit inside similar-sized enclosure of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The Touch ID fingerprint sensor is swapped by the Face ID TrueDepth sensors.
The new iPad Pros are equipped with the latest A12X Bionic chip, which uses the same 7-nm manufacturing process as the A12 SoC of the iPhone XR, Xs and Xs Max. According to Apple, the A12X consists of a 8-core CPU and a 7-core GPU. The chip has a whopping 10 billion transistors, 3 billion more than the A12. Apple claims to have 35% faster single-core or 90% faster multi-core CPU performance improvement.
Interestingly, Apple decides to switch the lightning port to a USB Type C port, that uses USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard (up to 10 Gbps). The USB-C port has the ability to connect to various peripherals, like displays and cameras. Apple also releases the 2nd generation Apple Pencil ($129 USD) with new gesture control and can be wirelessly charged by magnetically docked to the new iPad Pro.
The new iPad Pros can now be pre-ordered and will start shipping on November 7. The 11-inch model’s prices start from $799 USD (MSRP), and the 12.9-inch start from $999 USD (MSRP). The base model has 64 GB of storage, which you can choose up to 1 TB.
