Hands-on with iOS 11 features on the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro

San Jose: Apple has introduced an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro at the ongoing Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

Apple also announced new Macintosh computers, new versions of MacOS, watchOS and tvOS, along with providing a preview of an intelligent speaker that will show up in December. It features improved specifications such as Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, up to 128GB of VRAM, four USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, a 5K display, Radeon Vega graphics, up to 1TB of 3Gbps SSD storage, and even a 10Gbps Ethernet jack because God knows you'll need it. Apple calls the iMac Pro the "most powerful Mac ever".

The new iMac Pro is a Xeon-powered workstation class computer that's created to compete with workstations now available from HP and Dell.

Yet due to slimming down the bezels by 40 percent, the new iPad Pro remains as lightweight and compact to hold as its 9.7in predecessor.

The stunning, redesigned Retina display in iPad Pro features ProMotion, a new technology that delivers refresh rates of up to 120Hz for fluid scrolling, greater responsiveness and smoother motion content. For example the high refresh rate works well with using the new iPads for handwriting using the Apple Pencil, while slower rates save power while doing relatively static tasks such as reading ebooks.

Much like the new updated iMac models, the new MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air will be available to order starting Monday via apple.com, and will go on sale via Stores starting on Wednesday.

The all-new iPad Pro is powered by a six-core CPU and 12-core GPU. The enhanced screenshot functionality means iPad users will be able to easily mark up and share screenshots using new drag and drop and Apple Pencil annotation features. The new MacBook models measure 13.1mm thick.
