iPad Pro 2018 vs. iPad Pro 2017 vs. iPad 2018: Everything that changed

Confused? Here's how the specs play out.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Riding high on the launch of its iPhone XS and iPhone XR, Apple announced the much-anticipated iPad Pro 2018 this week. There's just one problem. With two screen sizes, two connectivity options and four storage capacities, separating specs get confusing fast. Double that when you compare the new iPad Pros to last year's models (which are no longer on sale) and to the regular iPad, which you can still buy.

Luckily, the chart below will help you break down what's new and different.

The iPad Pro for 2018 is a notable upgrade that embraces a rounded-corner design, ditches the home button for Face ID (like the iPhone) and yanks out Apple's proprietary Lightning connector port in favor of USB-C. That means you'll be able to use the iPad Pro to easily connect to other devices, like a DSLR camera. 

You'll also be able to charge your phone using the iPad's battery reserves, a feature within the USB-C standard. Notably, the iPad Pro for 2018 loses its headphone jack.
