Apple's new iPad Pro takes baby steps towards the future

Tablets
[MUSIC] Apple just released an entry level iPad earlier this year. Now, there are new iPad Pros. What's the difference here? Well the iPad Pro is Apple's premium tablet. And it just got an overdue upgrade. It's a super powered tablet with art and work extras. It's a computer replacement maybe. It's a gradual step in the direction of Apple's life beyond Macbook. Whether or not you need one depends on whether you're ready to let an iPad be more than well an iPad. The 10.5 inch iPad pro now sits in the middle between the springs iPad which is less expensive and the 12.9 inch iPad pro which also got an upgrade. The difference in screen size over the 9.7 pro last year which we loved isn't huge but it makes a difference for our photo apps, movies, or split screen it can be helpful Keyboards, both virtual and real, also gain a bit of finger space. But it feels more like a refresh than a full revolution. The new iPad has a brighter, faster, variable refresh rate display, that Apple calls Pro-motion. With more pixels, but the same pixel density as other iPads. But the 9.7 inch Pro display was already great. Owners of the new 12.9 inch version are gonna see the greatest improvement Especially with anti-reflectivity, which the 9.7 already had. App zip around and some animation can fly, most every day apps don't really use it a ton. But Apple says the variable refresh rate helps battery life. Hencil works mostly the same, but a bit faster. Honestly, considering how good it was before, it may be hard for non artists to appreciate the difference. Prints. In the near future, what could really make things change is iOS 11, which adds multi tasking, fully universal cloud and local file access, a larger dock for apps and immediate pencil note taking, but it's not here yet. That's coming in the Fall. Right now, with iOS 10, the new Pro is better but older Pro owners probably don't need to upgrade. Now what it isn't, is really a full computer as far as a laptop goes. The iPad Pro doesn't have any new accessories that make it any more laptop-like. Apple Smart Keyboard is the same and really isn't lap friendly. And of course there's pencil but there's no track pad for the iPad, and that means using it differently than a Macbook or a Windows PC. iOS 11 may help a lot but will it do everything power users hope it will? Hard to tell yet. [MUSIC] This is the best of the current iPads and it's a great upgrade for a long-time user. I wrote my whole review on this thing. But I didn't do my edits on it. [MUSIC]
