Apple announces an update to its iPad Pro, introducing a $799 11-inch version and a $999 12-inch version. Both come with a minimum 128GB of storage, which is upgradeable up to 1TB, and in either Wi-FI or Wi-Fi + cellular configurations.
While both versions look identical to last year’s model, the latest iPad Pros feature new processors and camera systems, in addition to a LiDAR Scanner which Apple claims delivers cutting-edge depth-sensing capabilities, opening up more pro workflows and supporting pro photo and video apps.
The biggest difference most people will notice, however, is the introduction of the Magic Keyboard, which unfolds and elevates the iPad so its silhouette falls somewhere between a MacBook and iMac. Features include a built-in trackpad, backlighting, and USB-C passthrough charging. The keyboard won’t be available until May, however, but it will be compatible with last year’s iPad Pros. It will cost $299 for the 11-inch model and $349 for the 12.9-inch model.
In its press release, Apple did not hesitate to compare the iPad Pro to Windows’ offerings, saying the iPad Pro is faster and more powerful than most Windows PC laptops. Apple also created a short video to introduce the product under the tagline “Your next computer is not a computer.”
