With Apple unveiling their newest innovations at this year’s keynote, it’s no surprise that the core product line has received a substantial revamp. Alongside the purposeful redesign of the MacBook Air and the reemergence of the Mac Mini, Apple has decided to cater to its portable-focused audience with a new, thinner version of the iPad Pro.
The Pro features an ambitious new design that simplifies the connection between the interface and the user. With Apple’s “all screen” upgrade, the smart device eliminates the home button (or exterior controls, for that matter) and instead opts for full intuitive gesture control. The screen itself is an upgrade to the new Liquid Retina display and boasts true-to-life color through ProMotion technology. Security-wise, the Pro will retain its facial recognition utility and utilize new “Pay at a Glance” technology, which expands on Apple Pay and allows the user to confirm payment through facial recognition. It features the A12X Bionic chipset (powered by Neural Engine), which has the ability to run five trillion operations per second. With an extensive list of performance upgrades, as well as aesthetic charm, the iPad Pro is a do-all, be-all solution for portable technology enthusiasts everywhere. The 12.9-inch and 11-inch versions are available for pre-order now.
