Apple has launched a new iPad Pro, and this one is a massive upgrade. To start things up, the new iPad Pro packs dual rear cameras and a LiDAR sensor for depth sensing. It draws power from the new A12Z Bionic processor with an M12 co-processor and an octa-core GPU.

The new iPad Pro comes in two sizes: 11-inch and 12.9–inch. Both of them have the ProMotion True Tone display and now have 128GB as the base storage configuration. Here’s a quick rundown of the hardware:

  • 11-inch (2388×1668) / 12.9-inch (2732×2048) ProMotion True Tone display with 264ppi pixel density and 600 nits brightness
  • A12Z Bionic processor
  • 128GB / 256GB / 512GB / 1TB storage
  • Dual rear cameras (12MP f/1.8 wide angle lens and a 10MP f/2.4 ultra wide angle)
  • 7-megapixel TrueDepth camera
  • Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6, and Gigabit-class LTE
  • 26Whr battery in the 11-inch model and 36.71Whr in the 12.9-inch variant

As for the redesigned iPad Pro cover, Apple calls it the Magic Keyboard. It now has a trackpad and backlit buttons, complete with a USB Type-C port for charging. More importantly, it has a floating design that allows the iPad to lift in the air for angle adjustment.

The new iPad Pro comes in silver and space gray colours. The 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $799, while the 12.9-inch sibling will set buyers by $999 for the base model. It is now up for pre-order and will hit the shelves next week.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
