Apple iPad Pro with Apple Pencil

Apple's latest iPad Pro features a major redesign from the previous models. Apple has removed the Home button and reduced the bezels, which means the smaller 10.5" iPad Pro now has an 11" screen, and the bigger 12.9" iPad Pro has the same size screen in a smaller body. Apple is using a new Liquid Retina LED IPS display that can stretch further into the iPad's rounded corners. Since there's no Home button, Apple has implemented Face ID to unlock.

In addition to the design changes, the new iPad Pro is much more powerful than ever before. It has an eight-core 7nm A12X Bionic 64-bit processor with Neural Engine and embedded M12 coprocessor. This, according to Apple, makes it more powerful than 92% of laptops sold this year.

The new iPad Pro now has a USB-C connector instead of Lightning. This means it supports high-bandwidth data transfers up to twice the speed to and from cameras and musical instruments, and drives external displays up to 5K. It also has the capability of charging other devices, including the iPhone.

The rear-facing camera on the iPad Pro is 12MP with Smart HDR and auto image stabilization, and it can record 4K video at up to 60 fps. The TrueDepth camera is capable of 7MP photos, Portrait Mode, Animoji and Memoji, and 1080p video recording up to 60 fps.

Accessories for the iPad Pro include an all-new second generation Apple Pencil, which attaches and charges magnetically. There's also a new Smart Keyboard which can hold the iPad at two different angles.

iPad Pro is available in Silver or Space Gray, and can be configured with up to 1TB of internal storage. The 11" iPad Pro starts at $799, and the 12.9" iPad Pro starts at $999 for 64GB of internal storage.
