Macbook Air, iPad Pro, and Co: So chic Apple's new eye-catcher

  • The Wrap – November 2, 2018

This development by Apple will empower iPad users to connect their iPad Pros to an external monitor, a DSLR and also even charge their smartphones with the help of reverse charging technology. It is magnetically attached to the iPad.

We'll let you know more about these as soon as we get our hands on them, but it's not all we were talking about this week.

The tablet comes in two variants of 11-inch and 12.9-inch oleophobic edge-to-edge liquid Retina display.

With a high-resolution Retina display, narrower screen bezel, and Touch ID, the MacBook Air comes in Space Gray, Gold, and Silver. There is now a single engine powering AutoCAD across desktop, web, and mobile platforms, allowing the highest possible fidelity for members of the AEC industry to move DWG files from one device to the next.

Overall, I really want to replace my current laptop with this iPad Pro, and when you look at it that way the asking price seems less absurd. It will come with Face ID that functions regardless of how you hold the device orientated, a refurbished exterior design, a new edge-to-edge display, the first USB-C in any type of iOS device ever, shocking performance, and support for the latest Apple Pencil.

Apple seems to like to go through phases when it comes to design, flipping from smooth curves to a more industrial, nearly brutalist design - and the latter is what you've got on the new iPad Pro. It turns out that, indeed, the A12X chip has no real rivals, as it's capable of delivering performance unseen on Android tablets, and most Windows 10 machines. Interested buyers can also go for USB-C lightning cables and more as those are likely to flaunt huge discounts during this Black Friday Sale. The Air moniker is just a name, it doesn't mean anything to Apple outside how much you'll pay to buy something with that word printed on it.

The 11-inch iPad Pro begins at $799 for 64GB, before climbing to $949, $1,149, and $1,549 for 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB, respectively. Here, too, the housing is made of recycled aluminum comes from. It is powered by the company's latest, top-of-the-line A12X bionic chipset, which Apple claims to be even more powerful than that of the Apple's iPhone XS, and XS Max. Users who are already using the previous iPad Pro models should, on paper, be just fine.

This is not to say that the iPad Pro is not without its merits. O'Brien contends that the portability, ease of use, and the growing strength of pro-grade tablets fill a gap between cell phones and laptop devices.
