Apple iPad Pro 2018 Launched

Apple has just launched two products, Apple MacBook Air 2018 Edition, and Apple iPad Pro 2018 Edition. These two devices are great products, to begin with. Do a quick check of what the second device looks like here. Now to the new iPad Pro 2018, Apple has finally ditched the old design metric for a new one which I consider super awesome because we are tired of having different iPads looking the same.

The curved back has been removed and replaced with a structure of the iPhone 4 and 5 if you are familiar with it, plus no home button too which literally means no fingerprint-ID but a face-ID system.

The home button was removed to achieve a bigger display  just like we have on the iPhone X,  which makes the tablet cooler, a whole different design with new specs, hmm, I think Apple is trying to gain something gain after it lost it position as the best tech company (check out the reasons).

Something is being introduced again, the Apple pen, surprised right? it uses gesture such as double tap to change brush size, switch to the eraser and so on to enjoy the flow with ease and how do users charge the apple pen, well it attaches magnetically to pair and charge wirelessly just like it is in the picture above.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 comes in two screen sizes, one with 11.7-inch screen display with 2388 x 1668p in resolution, and the other with 12.9 inches with 2732 x 2048p in resolution

Both features the Liquid Retina display technology we have on the iPhone XR which serves a rich color, ProMotion technology, P3 Wide color display, True Tone display, Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, Fully laminated display, Antireflective coating, 1.8% reflectivity, 600 nits brightness and a rounded corner as we can see below.

Apple integrated the USB-C on both devices which is also nice because it charges and transfers faster with an 18W USB-C Power, Adapter plus it supports a reverse charge, meaning you iPad Pro 2018 can power up users iPhone if users have the right dongle combination and it further expands to connecting to an external display with high display resolution and other devices.

It runs on the A12X Bionic chipset with 64-bit architecture, a neural engine which can possibly run five trillion operations per second plus it enables advanced machine learning, the device has an embedded M12 coprocessor and this is the latest chip.

its predecessor is the A12 Bionic chip found on the iPhone’s (iPhone XS, XS MAX, XR). still, on the chip, it has 10 billion transistors inside an 8-core CPU which is meant to be 35% above the A12 Bionic chip in terms of improvement and 90% faster plus it is equipped with a 7-core GPU which is higher in performance than the predecessor.

According to wired.com, the new iPad Pro appear to be able to run full Photoshop admirably well, and gaming demonstrations on showed impressive smoothness and detail.


Adobe Photoshop CC is coming on the iPad in 2019 which will be very fantastic and brilliant.

Both devices house internal storage of 64GB/256GB/512GB/1TB which determines the price at which both devices will be sold.

It houses an inbuilt 29.37-watt-hour li-polymer battery on the 11-inch model and 36.71-watt in-built Li-polymer battery with up to 10 hours of listening to music, browsing the web using wi-fi and watching videos and just 9 hours on cellular browsing (both devices).

The camera is always the problem on tabs, but in this case it not, Apple equipped the iPad Pro with a 12MP back camera which I am in love with, taking shots and recording videos will look great.

It sports a True depth front camera (7MP) which has great features that you could not imagine to be on a tablet.

The TrueDepth camera system is made up of multiple innovative technologies like the dot projector which projects More than 30,000 invisible dots onto users face to build your unique facial map, an Infrared camera whose work is to reads the dot pattern, captures an infrared image, then transfer the data to the Secure Enclave in the A12X Bionic chip to confirm a match and note that It all happens on the device and is never sent to the cloud, and finally a flood illuminator which is an Invisible infrared light that helps identify users face even in the low light environment.
