The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is as big as a short bond paper
Corroborating with previous rumors and speculations, Apple unveils its next-generation iPad Pro with skinny bezels and a home button-free design. In the absence of a home button, the new iPad Pro supports gesture-based navigation, similar to those found in the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR.
Like its iPhone siblings, the 2018 iPad Pro is the first iPad to have FaceID. You get a Liquid Retina ProMotion Display along with four speakers for a complete multimedia experience.
Powering the 2018 iPad Pro is the A12x Bionic processor that features an octa-core CPU and a 7-core GPU. The new processor claims to deliver up to 35% improvement in single-core performance and up to 90% improvement in multi-core performance.
The new processor comes with a fast storage controller that lets you have up to 1TB of storage on the iPad Pro, along with a USB-C port—a first for a portable Apple device. Speaking of USB-C, the iPad Pro can charge any device via the said port and can support displays up to 5K in resolution.
The Apple Pencil gets a new upgrade as well: it now magnetically connects to the iPad pro for charging, giving users fewer chances of misplacing the Apple Pencil.
The 2018 iPad Pro is available in 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes. The 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $799(~Php 42.8k), while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at $999(~Php 53.5k), and is available in WiFi and WiFi+LTE models.
