The only thing that hasn’t changed is the name.
The vision for iPad has always been to create a single, magical piece of glass that can become whatever you want it to be. The new iPad Pro is the ultimate expression of that vision. Every aspect has been re-engineered with our most innovative technologies. It’s unlike any iPad before. Or for that matter, anything before.
More screen. Less device.
The new iPad Pro features an all-new, all-screen design.1 But it’s not just any screen, it’s the most advanced display on the planet. And with less volume and more screen than ever, there’s more room to create, work and watch.
The new Liquid Retina display.
A technological marvel from edge to edge.
The Liquid Retina display features industry-leading colour accuracy, so you see true-to-life colour from one rounded corner to the other. Using a process called subpixel anti-aliasing, we rounded the corners by tuning individual pixels for smooth, distortion-free edges. True Tone dynamically adjusts white balance so images on the display look natural and are easier on your eyes. And thanks to the lowest reflectivity in the industry, the display is clear and readable wherever you take your iPad Pro.
ProMotion technology. Only on iPad Pro. ProMotion technology automatically adjusts the display’s refresh rate based on what you’re doing for the most responsive performance possible. So whether you’re scrolling through pages in Safari, playing an intense 3D game or drawing a complex illustration with Apple Pencil, everything feels utterly smooth, fast and immersive.
Two different approaches to two perfect sizes.
For the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, we kept the same great screen size as the previous generation but reduced the overall volume of the device by 25 per cent for maximum portability. And for the new 11-inch model, we kept the footprint of the 10.5-inch model but increased the screen size by pushing it all the way to the edges.
11-inch model features 2388x1668 resolution
12.9-inch model features 2732x2048 resolution
More technology in the thinnest iPad ever.
The technology inside iPad Pro has been completely redesigned to fit into less space while improving performance. Because the bezel size has been reduced to allow the display to get closer to the edge, we redesigned the 12-megapixel camera to fit within the minuscule space directly behind the bezel. The speakers, antennas and other components were also redesigned to fit inside the new iPad Pro, which is just 5.9 millimetres thin.
Thinner speakers. More immersive sound. A new woofer and tweeter pair in each corner delivers wider stereo sound for a high-fidelity, cinematic audio experience in any orientation, whether you’re watching a movie or on a FaceTime call with family. All with the thinnest speaker system we’ve ever designed. Go ahead and get loud.
Redesigned 12MP camera
Face ID engineered specifically for iPad Pro.
Now on iPad Pro, Face ID delivers the world’s most secure facial authentication in a tablet or a computer. With just a glance, you can unlock your iPad and log in to apps. And Face ID on iPad Pro can recognise your face whether you hold it in portrait or landscape.
Works in portrait or landscape
TrueDepth camera system. The innovation behind Face ID.
The TrueDepth camera system is composed of multiple innovative technologies. Working together in real time, they use a detailed depth map of your face to recognise you and only you in an instant. The camera system is unique to iPad, with a wide field of view that allows Face ID to work in any orientation. The TrueDepth camera also enables features like Portrait mode, Selfie Scenes in Clips, and Animoji and Memoji in Messages and Group FaceTime.
More than 30,000 invisible dots are projected onto your face to build your unique facial map.
An infrared camera reads the dot pattern, captures an infrared image, then sends the data to the Secure Enclave in the A12X Bionic chip to confirm a match. It all happens on your device and is never sent to the cloud.
Invisible infrared light helps identify your face even in the dark.
Gestures designed for an all-screen experience.
Simple, intuitive gestures help you get around iPad Pro entirely with Multi-Touch. Simply tap the screen to wake iPad Pro. Swipe up from the bottom to reveal the Dock in any app. Swipe up and pause halfway to get to the App Switcher. And quickly swipe up from the bottom to get home from anywhere.
Essentials designed perfectly for iPad Pro.
The new Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard Folio and iPad Pro were designed as a single, magical system.2 Each component connects to iPad Pro seamlessly with the utmost portability. Together, they make iPad Pro a new, versatile type of computer that can be whatever you need it to be — a keyboard, a notebook or a canvas.
The new Apple Pencil.
Design and capability rewritten.
The new Apple Pencil has been meticulously engineered to make writing and drawing as natural and simple as using a pencil, a highlighter or a paintbrush. The ability to change tools just by double-tapping makes Apple Pencil more capable, while wireless pairing and charging make it simpler than ever.
Magically pair. Wirelessly charge.Apple Pencil attaches to iPad Pro magnetically to pair and charge, whether the tip is up or down. Simply place the flat part of your Apple Pencil on the right side of your device. You can charge your iPad Pro and Apple Pencil at the same time, so your Apple Pencil is always ready when inspiration strikes.
Change tools with a double tap
All-new seamless design. The new Apple Pencil is designed to be comfortable and natural to use. Now you can double-tap the area where your finger rests to change from brush to pen to highlighter with ease. The matt finish makes it easy to hold, like a classic writing tool and the seamless design — no connectors or moving parts — makes it easy to store. You can even have your Apple Pencil engraved to really make it your own.
Smart Keyboard Folio. Newly designed, from front to back.
The new Smart Keyboard Folio attaches magnetically to the back of iPad Pro to provide protection. It delivers data and is powered through the Smart Connector — no batteries or charging required. Opening the front cover automatically wakes your iPad Pro. From there, simply unfold the keyboard when you need it, and fold it to create a thin and light cover when you don’t. And with two viewing angles, you can watch or work in whatever way is best for you.
