A few months after Apple released a simpler, more affordable iPad, the Cupertino company today announced the new iPad Pro, an improved and 10.5-inch version of the existing 9.7-inch iPad Pro. It’s the fastest iPad Pro to date, with an A10X processor that’s 30 percent faster than the previous model’s processor, and it’s the first iPad to support HDR video with a 120Hz refresh rate. Also, Apple claims it’s 50 percent brighter than the older iPad Pros.
The 10.5-inch model is designed with slimmer bezels compared to other iPad Pros; it’s the only model to support a full-size onscreen keyboard. The model also features the same exact front- and back-facing cameras as the iPhone 7. We’re not entirely sure who Apple is targeting with this new device — is it meant to replace your laptop? Regardless, it’s beautiful and fast. You can preorder the 10.5-inch iPad Pro today, and it ships next week. It will cost $650.
It’s worth noting that Apple also updated its 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the same technologies as the 10-inch model. This larger iPad Pro will start at $799.
