Apple unveils 10.5" iPad Pro featuring 20% larger display with ProMotion

Apple logoProMotion enables faster refresh rates up to 120 hertz, resulting in smoother scrolling, and more responsiveness from touch input, including just 20ms latency with the Apple Pencil.

Refresh rates are dynamic, adjusting for quality and power savings. Fast-moving content updates quickly for instance, while less intense activities like browsing photos slow things down.

The screen on the 10.5-inch Pro is 20 percent larger than its 9.7-inch predecessor, but with borders reduced by 40 percent. The extra space permits a full-size onscreen keyboard, as well as support for a full-size Smart Keyboard layout.

The 12.9-inch Pro is getting an upgrade too, with all of the capabilities of the 10.5-inch model. Both will feature True Tone white balancing, the P3 wide color gamut, ultralow reflectivity, HDR video, and 600 nits of brightness —50 percent brighter than earlier models.

The tablets are powered by a new A10X Fusion chip, delivering 30 percent faster CPU performance over the A9X, and 40 percent faster graphics performance.

Upgraded rear cameras use the same technology as the iPhone 7, namely a 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization. On the front is a 7-megapixel FaceTime HD camera.

A subtle but important upgrade is support for USB 3 transfer speeds, and faster charging with USB-C charging adapters.

New Smart Covers are coming in polyurethane and leather, and Apple is also producing a leather sleeve.

Storage is meanwhile doubling across the board, with both tablets starting at 64 gigabytes, and ranging through 256- and 512-gigabyte configurations. The 10.5-inch model will begin at $649 for Wi-Fi, or $779 with added 4G support. The 12.9-inch option is at least $799, rising to $929 for 4G. A top-end 4G, 12.9-inch iPad with 512 gigabytes of storage is $1,229.
