The 9.7-inch iPad Pro had 2GB of RAM. Apple current moves tend to focus more on two markets that are growing steadily, that is, the detachable devices that offers first-party keyboard (iPad Pro) and low-priced devices which are dominated by Huawei and Amazon. Apple is clearly expressing its view of how an iPad can be used in ways that are similar to how we use traditional computers today - all while retaining its familiar touch interface.

We know you've had your heart set on the iPhone 8, but you won't want to dismiss the new iPad Pro after you hear more about it - so think about your next Apple purchase wisely.

That laptop-ness will become much more realistic in September when Apple releases iOS 11.

The latest iPad Pro tablet comes with a 10.50-inch display with a resolution of 2224 pixels by 1668 pixels at a PPI of 264 pixels per inch.

Both models are available in Space Gray, Gold, and Silver in 64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities. With the 15-inch MacBook Pro, I couldn't create a similar situation, because the middle configuration offers a $100 option of stepping up from the Radeon Pro 555 with 2 GB of video memory to the top model's Radeon Pro 560 with 4 GB of video memory. The four speaker system is fantastic, and honestly, is one of the big reasons to opt for a Pro iPad over a "standard" iPad.

Apple did it by significantly decreasing the bezel surrounding the screen. Entering text isn't a problem, proof-reading is.

The problem speaks to Apple's struggles in diversifying its iPad family and trying to make the iPad Pro a viable laptop replacement. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro cost £499 for the 32GB model and £599 for the 128GB model; this one is £20 more expensive for a tablet with half the storage. The Pro 10.5 has a bigger battery than the Pro 9.7, but it also has to deal with a brighter screen that refreshes twice as fast.

If taking pictures with a tablet is your thing, this has the same 12-megapixel camera as the iPhone 7 and a 7-megapixel front facing camera.

The changes to the screen could mean even better battery performance than you expect with an iPad although it is still rated as being able to deliver 10 hours of battery.

We've detailed iOS 11 in a lengthy piece.

MacOs is still essential when I'm away for more than a night or two. But on what I've seen so far, the combination looks enticing.

Apple has introduced "the world's most advanced displays" in the 2017 iPad Pro variants.

As with any new Apple product announcements, it won't be complete without its accompanying accessories and the new iPad Pro is no different. They were already available in jailbreak apps - the kind of apps that Apple doesn't allow in the App Store - or on Android.
