New size, faster chips, and more storage. That’s just a little of what you can expect from Apple’s new iPad Pro lineup unveiled during the WWDC keynote on Monday.
In addition to upgrading its 12.9-inch iPad Pro (which originally launched in 2015), Apple released a new 10.5-inch model that replaces the 9.7-inch iPad Pro (which launched in 2016). Here’s what you need to know about the refreshed models, including all the new features, upgrades, and specs.
New 10.5-inch model
Apple introduced a new iPad Pro size: 10.5 inches. This model replaces the 9.7-inch iPad Pro that was released in 2016. The 10.5-inch model has a screen that’s 20 percent larger that its predecessor, and thanks to reduced bezels and borders, it still weighs about one pound. The new display size makes it possible for this new iPad Pro to accomodate a full-sized digital keyboard, as well as a full-sized Smart Keyboard accessory.
The 10.5-inch iPad Pro comes in silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is available in silver, space gray, and gold.
