Called the biggest change since the original iPad, the all-new iPad Pro sports 11-inch and 12.9-inch LCD ProMotion Liquid Retina Display panels with rounded corners using the pixel masking technology used in the iPhone XR. The new 11-inch and 12.9-inch models were launched at an event in NY on October 31. The base 11-inch model starts at INR 71,900, whereas the top-end variant goes up to INR 1,39,900. While the entry level 11-inch model will retail for Rs 71,900, the 12.9-inch option will bear a price tag of Rs 89,900. On the other hand, the iPad Pro 12.9-inch Wi-Fi only variant will come with a price tag of Rs 89,900 for the 64GB storage option, Rs 1,03,900 for the 256GB storage variant, Rs 1,21,900 for the 512GB variant and whooping Rs. 1,57,900 for the 1TB variant. The new iPad Pro can work with the new Apple Pencil as well as the Apple Smart Keyboard Folio.
iFixit's teardown of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro actually comes in video form, which you can see embedded below. They carry forward the same 120Hz refresh rates.
The all-new iPad Pro models are powered by the company's latest in-house Apple A12X Bionic 7nm SoC. The refresh rates on both the screens are 120Hz, and the thickness of both the models is nearly 5.9mm.
Luckily, the good people at iFixit have fought through gobs of glue to fully tear down the 11-inch version of the Pro, so we don't have to do it ourselves. The chipset comes with an octa-core CPU and a seven-core GPU with the latter offering double the improvement in graphics performance when compared to the last generation GPU. This allows for the implementation of machine learning to help you access UI elements and apps in an enhanced manner.
The new speaker array - comprised of four tweeters and four woofers - are responsible for a whole lotta magnets in the iPad Pro, along with those for the new Pencil's attachment for the charger. The iPad Pro also gets Face ID, Animoji and Memoji as well. At least the new USB-C port, which replaced Apple's proprietary Lightning port, is modular and easy to replace. No Type-C to 3.5mm audio dongle is bundled in the box either. For imaging, the iPad Pro makes use of a 12MP rear camera and a 7MP TrueDepth front camera. Apple, however, continues to cite 10 hours of battery life for the new device.
Yes, we know that Apple's new iPad Pro has more than 90 magnets (which is why you can stick it to your fridge, if you like), but knowing is one thing, and seeing it with your own eyes is another.
