Last month Apple pulled the wraps from the 2020 iPad Pro. The latest iPad Pro comes with a LiDAR scanner, A12Z Bionic chip, and an optional backlit magic keyboard. Apple has shared a new iPad Pro ad video called “Float” on YouTube.
The ad revolves around a hummingbird flying around the iPad Pro display mounted on floating Magic Keyboard. The video subtly showcases a new floating keyboard with a magnetic stand. As the hummingbird moves around, the iPad Pro tilts and showcases adjustable viewing angles. The video also highlights a new camera unit which finally takes a picture of the hummingbird.
Introducing the new iPad Pro. It’s faster than most PC laptops and features the most advanced mobile display, ever. With Wide and Ultra Wide Pro cameras and the new LiDAR Scanner to take AR to the next level. Oh, and it floats on a new backlit Magic Keyboard with trackpad.
