Just now Apple has released a new iPad pro, which includes 11 inch and 12.9 inch models. The new iPad Pro features a new a12z bionic processor with dual camera settings on the back. In addition, Apple has introduced a new iPad Pro smart keyboard with a built-in touch pad, which seems to be one of the biggest highlights of the new iPad pro. Next, let’s take a look at the main upgrade.
This iPad Pro is equipped with a new a12z chip and an 8-core graphics processor. A12z bionic design is designed to cope with various tasks, and running professional applications is its strength. The 8-core graphics processor can provide smooth performance for tasks such as 4K video editing, 3D design and augmented reality. Enhanced cooling design ensures higher peaks and more sustained performance, which is critical for handling professional level work. The neural network engine designed by Apple makes the machine learning technology on the device ready for the next generation of professional applications.
Another selling point of the new iPad Pro is the 12 megapixel wide-angle camera and the new 10 megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, plus studio level microphone and four speaker system. The camera is also equipped with a lidar scanner, the advanced technology of lidar (LIDAR light detection and ranging), which determines the distance by measuring the time it takes for light to touch an object and reflect back. A special lidar scanner uses direct time of flight (dtof) to measure the light reflected from the farthest five meters in indoor or outdoor environment. It can detect from the photon level, and can run at nanosecond speed, opening up endless possibilities for augmented reality and wider fields, thus bringing more real augmented reality effect.
Apple said that the smart keyboard supported by the new iPad Pro is designed with a floating bracket, which is connected to the iPad Pro through magnetic adsorption, so that you can easily adjust the viewing angle for yourself. The built-in touch panel opens a new interactive mode of iPad OS, and the USB ‑ C interface can also be used for direct charging. At the same time, it can also provide proper protection for the front and rear of the fuselage. This is a full-size keyboard specially designed for iPad pro. It adopts independent hard key cap and one millimeter key range scissor structure to provide sensitive, comfortable and quiet input experience. Click the comprehensive and consistent touch pad to open a completely new iPad OS experience for you. You can use it to control the new cursor in the iPad OS, and you can easily edit spreadsheets, select text and other tasks that need the cursor.
