Apple yesterday introduced the new iPad Pro with all-screen design, Face ID, A12X Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine and up to 1TB internal storage.
Two iPad Pro models 11-inch and 12.9-inch feature Liquid Retina display.
The iPad Pro will be available in silver and space grey finishes in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB configurations as well as a new 1TB option through Apple Authorised Resellers and select carriers, the company announced at a special Brooklyn event here.
The new iPad Pro models Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio are available for order starting Tuesday and in stores starting November 7 in the US and more than 40 other countries. The prices are, however, yet to be announced.
The new iPad Pro models will be available later this year in India.
“The new iPad Pro has an all-new thinner design, speeds through projects with the super-fast A12X Bionic chip and unlocks with a glance using Face ID in any orientation,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.
With over a million apps designed to take advantage of the large multi-touch display, including next-generation apps like Photoshop CC on iPad (coming next year), the new iPad Pro will push what users can do on a computer further than ever before, said Apple.
A second-generation Apple Pencil magnetically attaches to iPad Pro and wirelessly charges at the same time.
A new touch sensor built onto Apple Pencil detects taps, introducing an entirely new way to interact within apps.
The new Smart Keyboard Folio features a streamlined design that is adjustable for added versatility.
The new 11-inch iPad Pro packs a bigger display with more pixels in the same footprint as the 10.5-inch model, yet weighs just one pound.
The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro places the largest display of any iPad into a more portable package.
A new USB-C connector replaces the lightning connector in support of the powerful ways iPad Pro is used.
iOS 12 OS brings new gestures to iPad that are already familiar to iPhone X and iPhone Xs users including tap to wake and swiping to go home, access Control Center and for multi-tasking.
Group FaceTime feature now makes it easy to connect with groups of friends or colleagues at the same time.
Apple also launched an all-new MacBook Air with 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID and latest processors.>
