The 10.5-inch iPad Pro has been around for almost a year and the device replaced the 9.7-inch iPad Pro back in July 2017. Today we will take a closer look at it to see all the improvements which were brought by this special model.
The 2017 iPad Pro comes with an impressive display. The refresh rate of the screen is doubled to 120hz which makes images more fluid. This is something that gamers will appreciate. The refresh rate changes based on the content that is viewed. For example, for a 24 fps video, the refresh rate will go down to 24 Hz.
The iPad Pro proved to be strong enough to compete with a MacBook. This was the first time an iPad Pro managed to beat a MacBook and it received better scores for various tasks. The tablet comes with 64 GB for $ 650. And the storage goes up to 512 GB. The iPad Pro also comes with 4 GB of RAM.
The battery life is very impressing as well. When tested, the iPad Pro managed to last 10 hours and 5 minutes, which is one of the best scores.
The principal rival for the 2017 iPad Pro is the 2018 iPad. This device came with some improvements, including an A10 Fusion chip that replaced the previous processor. The new iPad also comes with better Apple Pencil support, which is something that wasn’t available on a non-Pro iPad until now.
September will bring plenty of improvements for iPad, as iOS 12 will be released. The new version will come with updates, including an improved Books app, Voice memos app, News app and a new Stocks app that will come with charts that are interactive. There will also be a speed increase for import speeds that use USB 3.0 SD.
