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:

  • 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.
