Will Apple's New iPad Help Drive Sales?

For the most part, the teardown reveals that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro looks a lot like the model it replaced, the 2016 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

Apple released iOS 11 into the wild more than a week ago, and you can try the first beta on compatible iPhones and iPads right now. However, I know more Mac users than I do Windows users, and the form factor and functionality of the Surface Book is just good enough that I can't help but wish that Apple had a true competitor, and I think the iPad Pro has been a missed opportunity for that.

Say goodbye to the 9.7 inch iPad Pro.

The new iPad Pro also debuts the firm's ProMotion technology that doubles the maximum refresh rate to 120Hz. The tablets also feature a much more powerful A10X Fusion chips with 30 percent faster CPU performance and 40 percent faster GPU performance compared to the A9X chip.

If you put the 10.5-inch iPad Pro beside the 9.7-inch model, you would not be able to tell the difference at a glance. So, will the iPad Pro give me some buyer's remorse now that I've spent nearly $1200 on a Lenovo Miix 500? The screen resolution is greater than a 13-inch MacBook Air and, when paired with the full-size Smart Keyboard, it begins to feel like a viable laptop for many different tasks. The Apple Pencil is a must have if you like sketching or drawing out notes, as I still do.

Rows of iPads were set up to show off ARkit, a set of tools coming with iOS 11 in September that will enable App developers to create incredible augmented reality experiences. Hanging onto a laptop might be a bit cumbersome, but your iPhone is too dang tiny, so the iPad Pro is the in-between you'll need.

If taking pictures with a tablet is your thing, this has the same 12-megapixel camera as the iPhone 7 and a 7-megapixel front facing camera. Both models were introduced last week at Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, California. Still, it was impressive to see the new MacBooks running multiple 4K HDR tracks in Final Cut Pro, without breaking a sweat. Looking at its specifications, it appears like the AMD Radeon RX Vega is exactly what the fans thought it would be - a powerful system aimed especially towards professionals.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro is undoubtedly a ground-breaking device.

With the match of iOS 11 and a newly responsive display, Apple looks like it has finally reached a tipping point with iPad Pro functionality. This Pro ships with iOS 10.3, which isn't technically bad, it's just that iOS 10 didn't add many truly valuable iPad-specific features. On the basis of the excellent 10.5-inch iPad Pro, it deserves to be the former.
