Apple announced the all-new iPad Pro (2018) 11‑inch and 12.9‑inch models at Apple Special Event held in New York on October 30, 2018. The new iPad Pro features an all-new all‑screen design, a Liquid Retina display with ProMotion technology, an A12X Bionic chip, and Face ID alongside the new Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio.

The all-new iPad Pro (2018) features a Liquid Retina display which goes from edge to edge and brings True-to-life color, along with ProMotion technology which makes everything look gorgeous and feel responsive.

The latest iPad Pro (2018) comes with Face ID for secure unlocking, log in to apps, and pay with a glance. it works seamlessly both in portrait and landscape mode.

It is powered by A12X Bionic, the latest, smartest, and powerful chip designed by Apple, with a Neural Engine, which is capable of running five trillion operations per second and enables advanced machine learning with 2x faster graphics for augmented reality and immersive gaming experience.

The latest iPad Pro (2018) comes with a new Apple Pencil which now also responds to your touch, introducing a seamless way to interact with apps. in other words, a simple double tap can now quickly change brushes or can switch the tool to eraser, without interrupting the current flow. the icing on the cake is that it attaches magnetically to pair and charges wirelessly at the same time. It’s cool, isn’t it?

The new Smart Keyboard Folio attaches magnetically to the back of your new iPad Pro (2018) 11‑inch or 12.9‑inch (3rd Generation) and protects the front and the back while you’re on the go. Simply unfold the keyboard to use it. Or fold it to create a slim, lightweight cover. it features innovative technologies that free you from switches, plugs, and pairing. Just attach the keyboard and start typing or remove and use the onscreen keyboard. The Smart Connector transfers both data and power between iPad Pro and the Smart Keyboard Folio, and thus, there’s no batteries or charging required.

Apple finally decides to ditched the lighting port in-favour of USB-C port, which can be used to connect the iPad to a 5K external display or camera, and can also be useful to charge your iPhone, just like on MacBooks.

iPad Pro (2018) has two great cameras equipped with Smart HDR. A 12MP camera great for stunning photos, 4K video, document scanning, and AR experiences. And a TrueDepth camera perfect for Portrait selfies, FaceTime, Animoji, and Memoji.
