All screen and all-powerful, the iPad Pro 12.9″ has been completely redesigned and is packed with advanced Apple technology. Featuring Face ID log-in, its edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display offers a stunning visual and touch-response experience, whichever way you hold it. Powered by the A12X Bionic chip, it’s faster than many PC laptops, so multitasking, playing games or watching Ultra HD videos handle like a dream.
How does this new model compare to previous versions?
The 2018 iPad Pro includes Face ID log-in, so there’s no need for the Home Button, meaning the bezel edges have been slimmed down so that screen size is maximized. It also includes a USB-C port rather than a lightning connector, and is powered by the ultra-fast A12X Bionic processor.
iPad has always offered the ultimate Multi-Touch experience. Now the screen size is maximized thanks to the thin bezel edges afforded by the lack of the Home Button (just swipe up to go Home). True-to-life colour and ProMotion technologies mean it looks gorgeous and is super-responsive. So whether you’re scrolling through pages in Safari, playing an intense 3D game, or enjoying augmented reality, everything feels utterly smooth, fast and immersive. Whether you use the display with your finger or the redesigned second generation Apple Pencil (sold separately).
A12X Bionic chip
The A12X Bionic chip with 64‑bit desktop-class architecture and Neural Engine puts incredible power in your hands. It can run five trillion operations per second and enables advanced machine learning. So you can edit a 4K video on the go, render an elaborate 3D model, or get the most out of augmented reality.
Face ID on iPad
To give an uninterrupted front display, Apple has done away with the Home button. Thanks to Face ID, it takes just a glance to unlock your iPad, or a gentle swipe up to access features. It’s engineered for secure unlocking, and works in both portrait and landscape orientations. You can even log-in to apps and pay securely with just a glance, so there’s less passwords to remember.
12MP Smart HDR camera and TrueDepth camera
Holidays and special occasions can be relived in beautiful detail using the 12-megapixel main camera with Smart HDR, which also records stunning 4K Ultra HD video. Instantly edit your material on the iPad with the help of Photos, iMovie and other apps available on the App Store. Additionally, the iPad has a 7MP TrueDepth front-facing camera, perfect for selfies, FaceTime, Animojis and Memoji.
The 2018 iPad Pro features a USB-C connector rather than the Lightning port found on previous models. It gives you a high-performance connection to accessories like external displays and cameras, and means you can output 4K HDR content.
The latest version of iOS comes with an amazing collection of apps, so you can start making the most of your iPad, straight out of the box. Take photos and videos and edit them on the go. Make video calls with FaceTime and send emails. Organise your life with Siri, Maps and the Calendar app. Plus, with over one million apps available on the App Store, you’ll find plenty of options to do almost anything you can imagine.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
