New & Improved iPad Pro!
The new iPad Pro comes with a new A12Z Bionic chip, it offers the “highest performance ever in an iPad”. The Bionic chip has an 8-core CPU and 8-Core GPU, along with Apple’s Neural Engine. And with all this performance, Apple has still managed to give almost 10-hours of battery life. It also has LTE capabilities that are 60% faster. Sources are also stating that all iPad Pro models will come with 6GB RAM and WiFi 6 capabilities.
The camera on the iPad Pro has also been upgraded, the camera array on the iPad Pro now features a 12MP Wide camera, as well as a 10MP Ultra-Wide camera. The microphone system on the iPad Pro also has been upgraded, it now has five “studio-quality” microphones that capture “super clean audio”. There’s also a new LiDAR camera array on the back. Apple says this LiDar Scanner measures the distance to surrounding objects up to 5 meters away.
The new Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro has a “floating design with smooth angle adjustment.” It attaches magnetically to the iPad Pro and features “unique cantilevered hinges” this allows it to adjust up to 130 degrees. The keyboard uses Apple’s scissor-switch mechanism and is backlit as well.
iPadOS 13.4, which will be released on March 24, includes full trackpad support for the first time. With trackpad support given in the iPadOS, Apple has also released Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro.
