Apple iPad Pro

At the WWDC 2017 keynote address, Apple updated its iPad Pro line to include a new 10.5" size. In addition to the size, the Retina Display now has a 120Hz refresh rate so videos, games, and apps will be smoother. It now can achieve 600 nits of brightness, supports a wide P3 color gamut, and has an improved antireflective coating.

Inside, the new iPad Pro has an A10X Fusion chip with 64-bit architecture and six cores. It's capable of 4K video editing, rendering 3D models, and playing graphics intensive games. Apple claims that the CPU is 30% faster, and the graphics are 40% faster than the previous generation.

The biggest updates to the iPad Pro will be released this fall with iOS 11. It will feature a dock similar to macOS to make it easier to switch between recent apps. The multitasking view has been redesigned, and both apps will stay active in Slide Over and Split View. It will come with a new Files app, which will work a lot like the Mac's Finder. It will bring all your files together, even across services like Dropbox and Box. Nearly everything will be drag-and-drop, so you can move text, photos, and files from app to app.

The iPad Pro is available with 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. The 10.5" size will start at $649, while the 12.9" iPad Pro will start at $799.
