iOS 11 adds more productivity-focused features in iOS. If you’re already using the iPad for getting work done, iOS 11 removes a lot of friction points. If you’re looking for a change, and your work doesn’t require you to absolutely adhere to the macOS platform, the new iPad Pros running on iOS 11 might just be enough to tempt you over.
At WWDC 2017 earlier this month, Apple unveiled the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and a refreshed 12.9-inch iPad Pro featuring its latest A10X chip. In typical Apple fashion, the company only provided some benchmark numbers of its new chip and did not provide any technical details about it.
Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, probably has a pretty busy schedule on a day-to-day basis, with a lot to do, even when it looks like he’s just traveling and stopping in to local Apple retail sites across the globe.
The 2nd generation of iPad Pros (2017) are now shipping. And this time, both models are identical except for the screen size. This is a much-appreciated change from the previous generation. Now, you just need to decide how big of an iPad Pro you need and you’re not making any other tradeoffs. The 9.7 inch iPad Pro is replaced by a new size – 10.5 inches. The new mainstream iPad Pro has thinner bezels but still maintains the same weight and thinness.
Turns out that Apple created a near-perfect tablet with the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
Earlier this month Apple officially announced the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which effectively replaces the 9.7-inch variant and offers up some pretty noteworthy improvements at the same time.
So if you aren’t aware, the new 10.5 iPad Pro was released yesterday. There are a plethora of new things to try out, but first thing I wanted to test was the new 120Hz “ProMotion” feature. This is a feature where the iPad Pro will run it’s display up to 120Hz when needed. But, is it noticeable? That’s what I wanted to find out.
The first set of reviews of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro are out, and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. They all do point, however, that this new iPad Pro from Apple will be more useful once iOS 11 is released later this year.
The iPad Pro lineup has a brand new member of the family with the 10.5-inch model, and the 12.9-inch variant also got some improvements too.
