Apple Reorients Strategy to Rejuvenate its iPad Product Line

But ever since it launched the gargantuan 12.9-inch iPad Pro in 2015, Apple has shown signs it's willing to somewhat rethink that strategy.

Apple also added a new processor and a better screen to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and launched a brand new 10.5-inch iPad Pro that replaces last year's 9.7-inch iPad Pro model.

This ultra-high refresh rate of the ProMotion display once again elevates the iPad to something that feels like science fiction, as most things in iOS have since gained a level of smoothness that nearly feels fake- It's like when you see a trailer for a video game and are sure it's just one big pre-rendered cut scene and the game turns out to look just like that. And by the time iOS 11 rolls out to both iPad Pros, they will be functionally similar as well.

Vodafone has announced it is an official stockist of the new 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro variants.

While the bezels have shrunk, the tablet still feels "as sturdy and seamless as the previous model" thanks to the single piece of aluminium that encases the device, says Engadget. The core enhancement is the screen as it is 10.5-inch screen.

This pricing is exactly how things should be, with the top 27-inch iMac model being $100 more expensive due to having the faster Radeon Pro with twice as much video memory. Is it 9.7 inches? 7.9? The new iPad Pro is also coming to the market with the new A10X Fusion chip, an upgrade over the A9X chip.

After announcing Far Cry 5 last May, Executive Producer Dan Hav showed off some gameplay for the franchise's fans. According to Ubisoft, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is set before the birth of the Jade, the first game's protagonist.

The dock for the iPad in iOS 11 is now versatile and customisable by allowing the user to throw as many apps onto it as they want and features a contextual segment that will suggest applications you may want to use next. The redesigned Retina display is as stunning to look at as it is to touch. Viewing apps in split-screen mode is also more comfortable on a 10.5-inch screen, as the extra surface area makes it easier to read text in apps that only occupy half of the screen. But don't expect to see dramatic changes in speed with simple tasks like launching apps, taking notes, and managing email.

The iPad Pro range's display was already fabulous, and Apple has only improved on its cutting-edge screen technology with this year's revamped lineup. On iOS, the home screen is the center, which puts the focus on apps. Plus, it comes with an excellent main camera and the same 10-hour battery life. The new iPad Pro has "Files" a File Explorer or Finder of sort.

Yes, you will be able to use iOS 11 on other iPads.

On the hardware side - there are a lot of improvements here.

Sure, if you get your iPad Pro 10.5 now it will be a free upgrade to iOS 11 later. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro has taken the tech space by storm for its capability that goes beyond its tiny build. Analysts have been smitten by its impressive screen and powerful specifications. The new iPad Pro is priced at $649.
