The iPad Pro came out back in June 2017, but it's got an update today.
The new iPad Pro is available November 7th, and here it is.
It's actually the 12.9-inch version.
I took a second to figure that out because it's smaller.
It's about the size of an 11 by 8 sheet of paper.
There's also an 11-inch iPad Pro that's the same size as the 10.5 before.
The prices are pro prices.
11 inch starts at 799, this one starts at 999.
With 64 g of storage, you can go all the way up to a terabyte now, which is a lot.
This is kinda like the iPad 10, because much like the iPhone 10, there's space ID here.
You may not notice it cuz there's no notch.
This display is continuous, it's a curved corner display lcd using a similar kind of display technology that's on the iPhone XR.
They may have just noticed I detached the pencil from the side it magnetically stuck.
That's how it charges now, there's a unique magnetic connector on the side.
And the new pencil not only will roll a little less, but it will attach now.
And that little flat side has tap zones, so you can use it to zoom in and tap and control things otherwise similar in terms of its pressure sensitive capabilities.
Lightning is gone, but USB-C is here, which is great because it's now going to work with a whole bunch of accessories.
It's also going to work with 5K external displays, and it will even reverse charge so you can charge up your other USBC devices or your iPhone, you can charge up your Nintendo Switch with your iPad, that's a really nice upgrade that brings it more to a computer type level.
Also new, it a type of [UNKNOWN] case, this new keyboard [UNKNOWN] attached to be a little more lap friendly 11 and 12.9 iPad pro are thinner and they both have A12X processors.
So that's a leap over the 10x before.
And the graphics and processing league should be really significant.
That's the main proposition for this is people who want to do art, people want to be using Adobe's upcoming Photoshop tools, a superior graphics and drawing experience.
Will it necessarily be a laptop replacement?
We'll have to see.
But it sounds like a similar proposition in the sense that you're going to be using it with keyboards.
You're going to be using it with Pencil.
You're going to be taking advantage of the larger screen and better processing power on [UNKNOWN] Another thing that the A12X can do is better AR.
Apple's very bullish on AR and the capabilities that can bring.
Now, on this iPad, maybe that's for things like Adobe's AR-based design app that's coming next year or it could be for all new types of immersive tools that work for the iPad.
But are you playing games on an iPad?
You might be.
Or you might be using a console or something else.
Also, keep in mind I just noticed there's no headphone jack on this iPad Pro.
You're gonna have to use an adapter or use Bluetooth.
So the proposition on these iPads is a computer.
But it's kind of a parallel computer or to work in combination with Macs.
And the starting price here is entering that laptop range.
There's also a Macbook Air that's 1,199.
There's a Mac Mini that starts at 799.
Apple's also keeping the 10.5 inch Pro from before at 650, so that might be a middle ground that you might wanna look at.
But Apple's pushing the boundaries here for touch, for face ID.
And maybe at some point These things will find it's way into other computing devices too.
But if you're looking for something like the iPhone X in an iPad, take it up a level and get that bigger screen, this might be what you're looking for.
This is the iPad Pro, my very first look at it, here at Apple's event in Brooklyn.
