Apple hosted an event on October 30th that released some well rounded updates. They announced new items such as an improved MacBook Air, iPad Pro, and Mac Mini. The iPad Pro lost its home button in exchange for super thin bezels, a light form factor, FaceID, and a super powerful processor.
Now available in 11-inch and 12.9-inch form factors, it features a Liquid Retina Display (similar to the ones in iPhone XR's,) along with an extremely light and thin body. With a thickness of only 5.9mm, makes it the thinnest iPad ever made. The new design also features magnets for accessories, such as the smart keyboards and Apple Pencils. Along with the iPad, a new version of the Apple Pencil was released with touch controls, with magnets built in so you can store it at the top of your new iPad Pro.
All these advantages do come with some minor drawbacks. For example, the new iPad Pro is charged through a USB-Type C cable, which does allow some data transferring from device to device. Another disadvantage would be the decently high price tag of $799 for the base line 11-inch model, and $999 for the 12.9-inch model. The new models are available for online ordering today, and will be released in stores starting Wednesday, November 7.
