As previously, Apple has updated its professional range of their iPad Pro tablet, presenting an entirely new 10.5-inch model. Unfortunately, it has not received an innovative “frameless” design, so that in terms of the appearance of Apple iPad Pro 2017 is virtually identical to the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch model.
Such a slight increase in the screen size (from 9.7 to 10.5 – less than an inch), company explained that even in this case, the image area has become 20% more, while on-screen and hardware keyboard are much more comfortable for typing.
As a hardware platform for the new Apple iPad Pro 2017 10.5 uses a 6-core processor Apple A10X Fusion with three high-performance and energy-efficient three-core and 12-core graphics chip. As you remember, the amount of RAM Apple has traditionally not made public, so that will have to wait for the first “showdown”.
As a result, the new Apple iPad Pro 2017 has become 30% faster as a whole, while the performance increase in graphics applications up to 40% (compared with the first Apple A4 processor graphics could accelerate to 500 times).
True Tone screen with a diagonal of 10.5 inches supports the new ProMotion proprietary technology that allows you to automatically adjust the image refresh rate from the minimum values (static images, save battery power) to 120 Hz (video games, fast scrolling, etc.). Developers also promised accurate color reproduction, an ultra-low parasitic reflection, HDR-video support and brightness of 600 nit.
The plate was a single main chamber 12 Mn optical stabilizer, 6 lenses (f / 1.8), 4-LED flash and 4K-video, and a front camera 7 Mn.
Battery capacity of Apple iPad Pro 10.5 is 10 hours, an unnamed capacity battery supports fast charging and connector USB 3.0 – a list of accessories for fast data transfer. Apple has also proposed several new variants covers, keyboards and covers, including cover with a special compartment for the Pencil Apple stylus.
The minimum volume of the new tablet data storage will be 64 GB – this version is priced at $ 649 (with built-in LTE-modem – $ 779), and the user can get 256 GB of free space for $ 749 and 512GB for $ 949. By the way, exactly the same set of 64/256/512 GB of memory for $ 799 / $ 899 / $ 1,099 and is now available for the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro, although earlier it was possible to receive a maximum of 256 GB of space.
