As expected, Apple showed updated MacBook Air, Mac mini and iPad Pro, which many did not wait for in September. Further on the latter.
For the first time in a long time, the Cupertín people changed the design of their devices, if you can talk like that about rectangles covered with glass. Frames tablets have become even smaller – the same thickness around the perimeter. The physical button “Home” is gone. Total Apple showed two versions of the iPad Pro: with a screen diagonal of 11 and 12.9 inches. The marketing name of the displays is Liquid Retuna. Thickness also decreased by 15%.
Apple A12X Bionic system
The tablets run on the Apple A12X Bionic system – still one of two processors on the market, made on the 7 nm process technology with its own dedicated Neural Engine, which provides record-breaking performance. The internal storage can be 64, 256, 512 or 1024 GB.
Interestingly, the company refused to use the Lightning connector. Now here is a standard USB-C, with which you can charge, for example, your iPhone. Accurate data on battery capacity was not reported, but they should work up to 10 hours. Instead, the fingerprint scanner uses Face ID, with which you can unlock the tablet even in horizontal orientation.
Apple new products:
The main camera is one – at 12 megapixels with an aperture of f / 1.8. The front sensor has a resolution of 7 megapixels and an aperture of f / 2.2. 4 speakers are used for sound reproduction and 5 microphones for recording. Traditionally, the tablet will be offered in Wi-Fi and LTE versions. Together with the tablet, Apple showed the new Apple Pencil for $ 218 and the Folio Keyboard for $ 296.
