    XBox-class performance in product thats 94% smaller
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:52:41 PM
    35% faster CPU, 90% for multi-core (more of a gain than XS claims over X) (8-core CPU), and 2x faster graphics (iPhones this year had 50% graphics gain). But also, X has A11, which iPad Pro skipped
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:52:53 PM
    Neural engine. 5 trillion operations per second. "These new iPad Pros aren't just faster, they're also smarter and more capable."

    "Whole new set of capabilities to iPad Pro, like connecting accesories, high-res display up to 5K"
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:54:36 PM
    "For the first time on iPad Pros, support charging out over USB." So you can charge your iPhone from your iPad
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:54:42 PM
    5k external displays, USB accessory and USB-C charge-out to charge an iPhone or something else. (!)

    Second-gen Pencil completely designed. Attaches magnetically to iPad Pro. Automatically pairs and starts charging wirelessly
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:55:14 PM
    Apple Pencil revamp: now has flat part so it won't roll! (and charges wirelessly to top of iPad, magnetically)
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:55:41 PM
    "Tapping the screen with the Apple Pencil will wake the iPad Pro and launch Notes app. Tap twice to switch modes. Can switch between current mode and eraser, for instance."
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:55:47 PM

  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:55:55 PM
    There's a new mode-switch that works via tapping. Kinda like AirPod Pencil.
  • Sarah Tew 10/30/2018 2:55:57 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:56:00 PM
    "It magnetically attaches to the iPad Pro and protects both the front and the back."
  • Sarah Tew 10/30/2018 2:56:03 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:56:10 PM
    "No other device can so easily adapt to your needs like iPad can."
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:56:35 PM
    "By adding just the right accesory, it totally transforms the experience. Add the Pencil and it becomes your sketchbook, " etc
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:56:35 PM
    The smart folio keyboard case looks like Logitech solutions. It doesn't have a trackpad...
  • Sarah Tew 10/30/2018 2:56:51 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:56:51 PM
    Augmented Reality. "iPad is the best device ever created for AR"

    Cameras calibrated for AR, so are the sensors like the accelerometer.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:57:27 PM
    "AR Kit 2 ... to completely transform how you interact with the world around you."
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:57:34 PM
    Apple is again making big AR claims with the new iPad Pro. ARKit 2 is pretty smooth on the recent iPhones.
