The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2017 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center is the primary source for the new improvements we can expect from Apple in terms of Apple products and software. Just one of the things expected to come out of this year’s WWDC is the iPad Pro. As a matter of fact, Apple has already released the device’s specs and we have to say we are excited.
The new iPad Pro is said to have more power than most PC laptops while maintaining the simple to use features we’ve come to love. If you are just as excited as we are about the prospect of finally being able to test out the new iPad Pro, you want to know what other features will be worth watching, right?
Well, this article has got your covered. Here we take a look at the big 5 features to expect with the new iPad Pro.
1 The Most Advanced Display on the Planet
As Apple claims, the redesigned Retina display on this iPad sets a whole new standard when it comes to offering the ultimate Multi-Touch experience. It is said to be much more brighter and less reflective than its predecessors but more importantly most responsive. This new responsive redesign will make it easy and seamless to scroll through pages whether you are doing so in Safari or playing a game. It is designed to make the viewing, scrolling and browsing experience smooth, fast, ultra-responsive and very immersive for the average user.
2 The new 10.5 inch Display
At 10.5 inches the display is also 20% larger than the 9.7-inch model, allowing you the room you need to do more. It also delivers a full-size onscreen keyboard. The display also makes the movie viewing experience that much more enjoyable with the 120Hz refresh rate that eliminates distracting artifacts. The display is also brighter than its predecessors and further adds life to your video experience with a wide P3 color gamut that gives you more vibrant greens and reds. The custom-designed antireflective coating makes the display clearer and more readable.
3 More Powerful Performance than Most PC Laptops
The new iPad Pro also comes with the A10X Fusion Chip with 64-bit architecture and six cores to make this device one of the most powerful you’ll ever use. All this power gives you the enviable ability to edit a 4K video on the go, render a 3D model or create and mark up complex documents and presentations. All that and still maintain productivity with an all-day battery life.
But all the power doesn’t take away from its simplicity. It is still as easy to use as any iPad you’ve ever owned, just more powerful to allow you to get more done in a shorter time-frame.
4 Apple Pencil Now Even Sharper
The new iPad Pro Display’s increased refresh rate makes the Apple Pencil even sharper than before and even more importantly, feel more responsive and natural than before. As such you can use the Apple Pencil more effective to write, mark-up and draw with the unrivaled precision.
The Apple Pencil’s effectiveness is improved further by iOS 11 features that include instant notes. You can simply tap the Apple Pencil on your iPad lock screen and a Note opens. You can also sign documents, draw on a screenshot or annotate a PDF instantly. Easily searchable handwriting features make it possible for you to write now and find your writing later. You can also sketch, draw or write alongside texts in Notes and Mail.
5 iOS 11 Features on the New 10.5 Inch iPad Pro
All the features above make for great new additions to the iPad Pro experience but none is quite as monumental as iOS 11. This is because it comes with features that make significant improvements to how you use your iPad. For instance, the new Dock makes it very easy to find your favorite and recently used apps and file. The new Files App will bring all your files together whether they are on the iPad or other storage locations like iCloud and Dropbox. The new drag and drop feature makes it easy to move things around.
Multitasking has been further simplified by iOS 11. Now both apps will remain active on the Slide Over and Split View. And we have extensively seen just how iOS 11 makes the Apple Pencil more effective.
With iOS 11 on the new iPad Pro, it feels like you can just about anything. It is as such worth a second look and we sure can’t wait.
