The new iPad Pro was released on November 7, 2018 and it is stunning. With its new features and amazing upgrades, Apple describes it as the biggest change in the iPad since, well, the iPad. The real question is: should you buy the iPad Pro? Well, there are so many things about the iPad Pro that are bound to catch anyone’s eye. Apple ensures that it is unlike anything you’ve seen.

“It’s all new, all screen, and all powerful, ” said Apple. “Completely redesigned and packed with our most advanced technology, it will make you rethink what the iPad is capable of.”

The new iPad has changed so you may do more with your iPad, from office work to gaming. One of the major changes is its charging method. As peculiar as it may seem, the new iPad Pro has a USB-C port. This port is mainly for Macs and Air Macs, but, for the first time ever, it has appeared on the iPad Pro.

The Pro is also customized to effectively accomplish office work. Users can connect scanners and other office gadgets. Apple is still experimenting with the Pro’s printer compatibility. 

“If you connect a printer, well, we’ll see what happens together,” said Apple.

Apple has also made another change: the chip that the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS MAX have an A12 Bionic Chip with neural engine, but the iPad Pro got a major upgrade. The new iPad Pro has an A12X Bionic Chip with neural engine. This means that the iPad Pro has a major advantage when it comes to performance. How much? Well, according to Apple, it processes 92% faster than an average PC, and it displays Photoshop and similar applications at the same improved rate.

In regards to performance, Apple redesigned its iPad. Now, it is no longer flat, but more round, rigid, and thinner from the sides and its margins. The margins are not 19.3 mm anymore, but 5.9 mm giving you more screen.

One of the most featured components of the iPad Pro is the Apple Pencil. This former failure-of-an-accessory has been revamped and redesigned. It used to glide and move while users wrote with it, making it a serious inconvenience, but the world can say goodbye to this problem, because the Pencil has about 30 magnets holding it together. Not only that, but now it has gestures that allow you to move between tools and it now charges when it is connected to the magnets.

What about the camera?

The camera has improved astonishingly as well. With so many invisible sensors mapping facial features, it is almost guaranteed that each picture will be beautiful. The new iPad Pro also finally has facial recognition. Face ID now maps 30,000 dots mapping various places on a person’s face so that you never have to worry about orientation or angle.

The last thing about the new iPad Pro is that it “enhances” users’ experiences with video and sound. Apple has integrated its innovative display to the iPad Pro called Liquid Retina. This makes each iPad look like a mini QLED TV (a really, really good television).

Of course, one shouldn’t forget the importance of sound, either. Although Apple has been trying to make audio jacks extinct, the iPad Pro still has amazing sound. Apple has added two more speakers on each side of the iPad Pro, meaning that the sound is among the best of Apple’s plethora of devices.

We recommend that you save your money to purchase an iPad Pro. The 11 inch display is $799, so save up and maybe you can get it for even lower as Cyber Monday deals inch to an end.

For better or worse, the many changes initiated by the iPad Pro are a step in a new direction for Apple (and we think it’s safe to say it’s for the better).
