Apple unveils 10.5-inch iPad Pro

After several months of rumors, Apple on Monday officially unveiled the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

The update delivers a bigger display with diminished bezels that allow for the bigger 10.5-inch display that will weigh only one pound. The bigger display also makes it a perfect size to fit a full-size keyboard.

Apple’s brand new 10.5-inch iPad Pro also features some of the same features we’ve seen in past iPad Pros like TrueTone display, Ultraflow reflectivity, Apple Pencil support with 20ms latency, wide color gamut and 600 nits of brightness.

Where the new iPad Pro bests its predecessors is with the inclusion of what Apple is calling ProMotion. This will allow for a 120Hz refresh rate that makes its display performance “buttery smooth.” This will be the first display on a mobile device that will adjust refresh rate depending on what you’re watching.

For specs, it features a A10X Fusion processor with six-core CPU and 12-core GPU. It will come with the same 12MP main camera with optical image stabilization found in the iPhone 7 and a 7MP front-facing camera. Apple also unveiled a myriad of update accessories like covers and keyboards.

Both the 12.9-inch and 10.5-inch iPad Pros will start with 64GB of storage and will go up all the way up to 512GB of storage—a first for an iPad. Pricing will be $649 (64GB), $749 (256GB) and $849 (512GB) for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and $799 (64GB), $899 (256GB) and $1,099 (512GB) for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Apple didn’t reveal more detailed specs like RAM or battery size.

The iPad also got big software improvements with big new changes with iOS 11, including a new dock that will make it easier than ever to access apps and revamped Apple Pencil support. You can read more about that here.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro will start selling today and will be available in stores beginning next week.
