This ultra-high refresh rate of the ProMotion display once again elevates the iPad to something that feels like science fiction, as most things in iOS have since gained a level of smoothness that nearly feels fake- It's like when you see a trailer for a video game and are sure it's just one big pre-rendered cut scene and the game turns out to look just like that.

After introducing split-screen multitasking and iPad Pro models with included keyboards in 2015 and early 2016, Apple went quiet on the iPad front.

In spite of that, several tech experts described the 10.5-inch iPad Pro as a stupendous device. iPad Pro's expensive price point might turn the new tablet into a main computing device, which include extra-cost accessories such as the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard. It's higher than the 2016 12.9-inch iPad Pro, with its A9X processor (187,411), the A9-powered iPad (126,384), and the aging iPad mini 4 (84,841).

Baked in by default is the True Tone display, the cinema-standard P3 colour gamut, and the Promotion technology powering the 120Hz refresh rate screen. It comes with 18-core Xeon processors and 22 teraflops of graphics processing unit (GPU) performance, guaranteeing a top-quality professional-grade Mac. Is it better than previous iPad Pros?

At 477g (Wi-Fi + 4G model), the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is only 33g heavier than the 9.7-inch version.

"Once you see/feel the difference it's hard to unsee it anymore, scrolling on my 6s Plus feels so much worse than on that iPad 10.5..." Apple HomeKit is also supported, so there'll be prompts to turn off your smartlights at bedtime too.

That laptop-ness will become much more realistic in September when Apple releases iOS 11.

Camera-wise, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro comes with the same 12-megapixel, ƒ/1.8 aperture camera as the iPhone 7 and a 7-megapixel FaceTime camera.

Yes, you will be able to use iOS 11 on other iPads. But some of these iOS 11 features were already available on jailbroken iOS devices or on Android long before Apple unveiled them.

It wasn't a good time to buy a new MacBook or MacBook Pro recently, for example.

It has since been replaced with a larger 10.5 inch screen, in a body roughly the size of its predecessor. "But when you do need one, it looks like Apple plans to always offer you something meaningfully better". To this end, the company launched 9.7 inch iPad in March this year and kept the price significantly lower to especially target first-time or casual users.

Apple began accepting iPad Pro orders just after the WWDC keynote event, and the first iPad Pro models began shipping out over the weekend with most offering June 13 delivery dates. On the basis of the excellent 10.5-inch iPad Pro, it deserves to be the former.
