This year’s Worldwide Developers Conference was all about software, so it stands to reason that this year’s September Event will have a big focus on hardware — and not including three new iPhones.
Apple to Refresh Mac mini, Launch New Apple Watch with Larger Display, Intro New Low-Cost Notebook, and More in 2018
Rumors swirled early this year that Apple was planning on introducing new iPad Pro models at its Worldwide Developers Conference keynote in June, but, here we are on July’s doorstep with no new iPads to talk about.
In a bid to possibly ensure that there is a difference between its regular iPad and iPad Pro lineup, Apple limited multitasking to two apps on the former. On the iPad Pro though, one can run two apps side-by-side, launch another app and interact with all three of them at the same time. With iOS 12, Apple is bringing the same functionality to the 5th and 6th gen. iPads.
There are a lot of trade shows and events throughout the year, and one such event has given a couple of Apple’s latest devices some awards.
There’s a brand new iPad. The 2018 version of the 9.7-inch iPad (officially called iPad 6th Generation) still starts at $329 and looks the same. But it now supports Apple Pencil and has the latest A10 Fusion chip. The next iPad in the line is the $649 10.5 inch iPad Pro. If you’re in the market for a new iPad, you might be wondering which one is the right for you. And what exactly do you get for the extra $310? Is iPad Pro worth the extra dough? Read on to find out.
Ahead of Apple’s ‘Let’s take a field trip’ media event next week, reputed leaker @evleaks shared a rendering of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro with minimal bezels and no home button. However, the leaked render turned out to be a fake as it was designed by case maker Speck over six months ago and used for marketing and promotional purposes.
One of the most important new features that Apple introduced last year is Face ID, the biometric security measure that uses an iPhone X owner’s face to unlock their device.
If you have been wanting to get your hands on the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but haven’t wanted to fork over the full retail price, Apple has refurbished models now available.
The iPad Pro lineup has a lot to learn from the iPhone X, and if the rumor mill is any indicator, the early tablet refresh this year might indeed adopt quite a few traits from last year’s flagship iPhone.
