    "It's truly a magical piece of glass that transforms into anything you want.""
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:40:54 PM
    iPad boundaries being pushed....!
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:40:56 PM
    "We've been pushing the boundaries on iPad. Today we're going to push them further than ever before."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:41:06 PM
    Greg Joswiak of the marketing team is up to talk about iPad Pro
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:41:07 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:41:21 PM
    iPad Pro well due for a good upgrade
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:41:22 PM
    "When we introduced iPad Pro just 18 months ago, it completely redefined what you can do with iPad."
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:41:24 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:41:45 PM
    "There are 2 models to iPad Pro today. 13 inch and 9.7 inch. 9.7 inch is our most popular model."
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:41:52 PM
    9.7 is the most popular Pro (no surprise). New Pro today
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:41:52 PM
    "Today we're going to introduce an all-new iPad Pro."
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 6:41:53 PM
    This is what we've all been waiting for... iPad Pro -- and the battle to prove a tablet can really replace your laptop.
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:41:54 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:42:02 PM
    "It's going to take everything you love about the 9.7 inch and give you a whole lot more to love."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:42:17 PM
    "It's the first iPad Pro with a larger 10.5 inch Retina Display."
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:42:23 PM
    New iPad Pro...looks like iPad Pro. But has 10.5-inch Retina, reduced bezels.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:42:29 PM
    "We're able to reduce the borders."
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:42:33 PM
    Still 1 pound.
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:42:34 PM
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:42:51 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 6:42:52 PM
    Interestingly, Microsoft is playing both sides of the coin, too, with the new Surface Laptop and new Surface Pro both shipping this month.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:42:54 PM
    Weighs just 1 pound. The first iPad that can have a full-screen keyboard on the display, as well as a smart keyboard
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:42:59 PM
    Full-size on-screen keyboard, and smart keyboard (I'm fine w 9.7 one though)
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:43:03 PM
    More than 30 languages at launch
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:43:07 PM
  • Ry Crist 6/5/2017 6:43:08 PM
    Apple's got its work cut out for it here. The "Pro" in iPad Pro needs to connote more than just "big."
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 6:43:20 PM
    That seems roughly comparable to the MacBook Pro and iPad Pro combo.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:43:21 PM
    "iPad Pro has always had the best displays in the industry. Both sizes are going to get incredible new displays today."
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:43:24 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:43:41 PM
    So now 10.5 and 12.9 iPad Pros. Both have True Tone, wide color gamut, 600 nit brightness. ultra low reflectivity
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:43:41 PM
    True tone display, wide color gamut, 600 nits brightness, HDR, etc
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:43:50 PM
    "Our biggest breakthrough is a feature we call ProMotion."
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:44:01 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 6:44:07 PM
    HDR is really going mainstream now -- in TVs, in tablets, in phones, in game consoles, etc.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:44:10 PM
    "Able to take unique hardware and software capabilities and dramatically improve our display refresh rate."
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:44:11 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:44:14 PM
    Doubled to 120 Hz
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:44:21 PM
    ProMotion: a display-enhancing technology. From 60Hz to 120Hz.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:44:31 PM
    "All of your motion content on all of your screens is going to be smoother, more responsive."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:44:43 PM
    "The difference is dramatic. When you scroll, it's buttery smooth."
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:44:54 PM
    "With ProMotion, Apple Pencil gets even better."
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:44:57 PM
    Pencil will work more responsively via ProMotion. 20ms latency
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:44:59 PM
    20 milliseconds latency
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 6:44:59 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 6:45:07 PM
    Also, the 120Hz bump makes the iPad Pro screen much more like a high-end PC monitor.
