More In The Making Event: Say Hello To The Edge To Edge Screen Of The iPad Pro

The iPad Pro rumors are true. Apple took the stage in Brooklyn to show off the brand new edge to edge display of the all new iPad Pro. To put the edge to edge display in perspective, the existing 10.5″ iPad Pro device size stays the same, but now the screen is 11″. The 12.9″ model is getting the same treatment, but the device size now takes up 25% less volume. In fact, the new 12.9″ iPad Pro is about the same size as a standard 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper. Apple has used the technology of the iPhone XR for an all new LCD display that round the corners to truly push the screen to the limits of the iPad footprint.

Beyond the screen, Apple has also made the iPad thinner at just 5.9mm, compared to 6.9mm. The edges of the device are also now straight edge, rather than rounded to resemble the iPhone 4/5. FaceID has also come to the iPad, and made to work in any orientation. On the inside, there’s the new A12X Bionic chip with an 8 core CPU and 7 core GPU. Also as rumored, the iPad Pro switches out the lightning port for USB-C. The port change allows you to hook up an external monitor, connect your DSLR camera, and even charge your iPhone.

The iPad Pro also gains support for a redesigned Apple Pencil that attaches magnetically to the iPad, and charges wirelessly. The keyboard includes a second screen angle orientation when typing.

The new 11″ iPad Pro starts at $799, and the 12.9″ starts at $999 with storage options as 64GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB with orders starting today, and shipments beginning on November 7th. LTE models are also supported, and the existing 10.5″ iPad Pro is sticking around at $649.
