The iPad Pro comes in two variants, a smaller 10-inch model packing a 2388 x 1668 Liquid Retina display with ProMotion technology and a larger 12.9-inch version which packs a 2732 x 2048 Retina screen. Both have fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating and a peak brightness of 600 nits. Both also sport Face ID sensors, which also works in landscape mode now.
The iPad Pro (2018) is powered by Apple’s octa-core A12X Bionic chip which is coupled with a 7-core GPU, an embedded M12 co-processor and an upgraded Neural Engine. The device packs a 12MP rear camera with F/1.8 aperture that is capable of recording 4K videos at up to 60FPS. On the front is the 7MP TrueDepth camera system which has support for portrait mode and also enables Face ID authentication, Animoji and Memoji.
With the new iPad Pro, Apple has finally bid adieu to the Lightning port in favor of a USB Type-C port, along with a T2 chip for authentication. On the connectivity front, you get Gigabit-class LTE, eSIM technology, and Bluetooth 5.0, while the battery life is claimed to be 10.5 hours.
