An All New iPad Pro Is Here

Apple announced during their WWDC Keynote, an all new model iPad, the iPad Pro 10.5 inch and it is available to purchase today, with delivery happening next week.

The new 10.5-inch model reduces the borders by nearly 40 percent to fit into an incredibly compact package that still weighs less than 500 grams. Combined with powerful new iPad features in iOS 11 coming this spring, like the all-new Files app, customisable Dock, improved multitasking and deeper integration of Apple Pencil, iPad Pro gives users the ability to be even more productive and creative.

“These are by far the most powerful iPads we’ve ever created with our most advanced displays featuring ProMotion, the powerful new A10X Fusion chip and the advanced camera system of iPhone 7,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing. “Together with iOS 11 these new iPad Pro models will radically change what users can do with iPad.”

iPad Pro delivers groundbreaking performance, connectivity and versatility to tackle the most demanding tasks. The powerful new 64-bit A10X Fusion chip provides performance that is faster than most PC laptops shipping today, so tackling complex tasks like editing photos and 4K video, rendering 3D images or playing games feels effortless. A six-core CPU and 12-core GPU deliver up to 30 per cent faster CPU performance and 40 per cent faster graphics performance than the A9X chip.

Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, available for purchase separately, bring breakthrough levels of precision and utility to iPad Pro. Advanced sensors in Apple Pencil measure both pressure and tilt for natural drawing, annotating and note-taking. A new full-sized Smart Keyboard has been custom designed for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, offering a thin yet durable keyboard that never needs to be charged or paired over Bluetooth and is easily foldable into a protective Smart Cover.

While the new iPad Pro comes with iOS 10, this Spring it will update to iOS 11, which will bring a wealth of additions to help you keep up with everything you need to do. Here are some of the new features coming to iOS 11:
  • a new customisable Dock that provides quick access to frequently used apps and documents from any screen;
  • improved multitasking, including a redesigned app switcher that brings Spaces® to iOS, making it easier to move between apps or pairs of active apps, used in Split View and now Slide Over;
  • the new Files app that keeps everything in one place, whether files are stored locally, in iCloud Drive or across other providers like Box, Dropbox and more;
  • Multi-Touch Drag and Drop, which is available across the system to move text, photos and files from one app to another, anywhere on the screen;
  • a new document scanner in Notes, which lets users easily scan single or multi-page documents, removes shadows and uses powerful image filters to enhance readability; and
  • deeper integration with Apple Pencil, with support for inline drawing to write along text in Notes and Mail, Instant Markup to easily sign documents, annotate PDFs or draw on screenshots, and a new Instant Notes feature, which opens Notes from the Lock Screen by simply tapping Apple Pencil on the display. New searchable handwriting makes it easy to search for handwritten text or characters. 
The 10.5-inch iPad Pro comes in silver, space grey, gold and rose gold starting at $979 for the 64GB with Wi-Fi model and starting at $1179 for the 64GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model. 

The Smart Keyboard is available in charcoal grey for $235 for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, with the Apple Pencil available now for $145.
