Apple announces two new iPad Pros


The Apple 10.5 inch iPad Pro comes with thin borders, reduced nearly as much as 40 per cent while it weights just around a pound.

At the keynote, Apple announced an all-new 12.9-inch and 10.5-inch iPad Pro - among other things - with supposedly better Retina displays, faster processors and all-day battery life.

The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro features a redesigned Retina display that's 20 percent larger than the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Step one, pick up your Apple Pencil. Weighing just 1 pound (about half a kilogram), the device also comes with "ProMotion" technology and other enhancements to the screen, resulting in smoother scrolling and more responsiveness content. The display has Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic and antireflective coating. True Tone dynamically adjusts the white balance of the display to match the light around users. Well, what's one more iPad Pro between friends?

The new iPad runs on iOS 10 and powered by A10 X Fusion chip with 64-bit architecture. "Together with iOS 11 these new iPad Pro models will radically change what users can do with iPad", he added.

When it comes to cameras, both the devices feature a 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization, and a 7-megapixel FaceTime HD camera on the front.

iPad Pro also features a four-speaker audio system, providing powerful, clear and rich stereo sound in any orientation.
