    There are clearly A LOT of Apple people in this crowd
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:41:30 PM

    Now we're onto iPad
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:42:15 PM
    Portable, versatile (but still not my laptop replacement)
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:42:21 PM
    "Portable, versatile and powerful, while at the same time being incredibly easy to use." Sold over 400M so far.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:42:36 PM
    Sold more iPads in the last year than the entire notebook lineup of the biggest notebook manufacturers

    Goodbye home button
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:44:33 PM
    A new Apple Pencil too
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:44:44 PM
    Oh nice, it charges way differently than before
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:45:03 PM
    No more chamfered edges! Face ID. Smaller bezels. New Pencil with side touch area and it magnetically attaches to top of iPad.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:45:10 PM
    Before, you connected one end to the lightning port, so it stuck out weird. This one looks like it has a magnet or something to stick to the side of the device

    A little sleight of hand in the iPad Pro promo video -- Scott (and I) surely appreciate the nod to prestidigitation
    .
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:45:33 PM
    John (I didn't catch the last name because Apple never puts them on the screen) is now up to talk about this
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:45:47 PM
    "This is the iPad we dreamed about building from the very beginning."
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:46:06 PM
    Display corners are rounded like what it's in the iPhone XR. Liquid Retina display like in that phone
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 2:46:18 PM
    Now looks more like detached laptop lid than ever. LCD display, similar Liquid Retina curved-corner display tech to iPhone XR
