Liquid Retina display.
The edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display is not only gorgeous and immersive, it also features incredibly advanced technologies.1 Like Promotion, True Tone and industry-leading color accuracy, which make everything feel responsive and look stunning. Quite simply, this combination of features makes it our most advanced mobile display.
Advanced cameras – combined with a large display, fast performance and highly calibrated sensors – have always made iPad uniquely capable. The Wide and new Ultra-Wide cameras help you frame the perfect photo or video. And together with studio-quality mics and Four Speaker Audio, you can even set up a multi-camera filmmaking rig.
LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is used to determine distance by measuring how long it takes light to reach an object and reflect back. It is so advanced it’s being used by NASA for the next Mars landing mission. And it’s now been engineered to fit in the thin and light iPad Pro.
The custom-designed LiDAR Scanner uses direct time of flight to measure reflected light from up to five meters away, indoors and out. It works at the photon level, operates at nanosecond speeds, and opens up tremendous possibilities for augmented reality and beyond.
The LiDAR Scanner works with the pro cameras, motion sensors and frameworks in iPadOS to measure depth. This combination of hardware, software and unprecedented innovation makes iPad Pro the world’s best device for augmented reality.
On the new iPad Pro, AR apps become even more realistic. Placing an AR object now happens instantly. Realistic object occlusion allows AR objects to pass in front of and behind real-world structures. Improved motion capture and people occlusion are more accurate than ever. And developers will be able to create even more immersive experiences.
Shoot and edit
The pro camera system makes iPad Pro incredibly versatile. Shoot, edit and share a 4K video, all on the same device. Capture an entire room in one shot with the Ultra-Wide camera and use Markup to redesign it on the spot. Or scan a document, sign or mark it up with Apple Pencil, then send back your notes with a tap.2
True Depth camera
The front-facing True Depth camera enables Face ID, the world’s most secure facial authentication in a tablet – and in a computer. It also means you can chat with friends using FaceTime, take Portrait selfies or liven up your Messages conversations by turning yourself into an Animoji.
Performance – Faster than you can say PC. A12Z Bionic.
With the A12Z Bionic chip, iPad Pro is so fast it outpaces most PC laptops available today. It makes everything you do fast and fluid, from your everyday tasks to graphics-intensive workflows. And the 8-core graphics processor means even more performance and realism for the apps and games where it matters most.
A12Z Bionic is designed to be put to work, especially with pro apps. The 8-core graphics processor delivers fluid performance for things like 4K video editing, 3D design and augmented reality. Enhanced thermal design means higher peak and longer sustained performance – critical for pro workflows. And the Apple-designed Neural Engine enables on-device machine learning ready for the next generation of pro apps.
iPadOS is designed to harness the power and performance of iPad Pro. Lightning-fast hardware and powerful software were designed in concert to make every interaction snappy and smooth. Which makes working with multiple apps at once and moving between spaces quick and effortless.
Magic Keyboard – Yes, it floats.
The all-new Magic Keyboard is an amazing companion for iPad Pro. It features the best typing experience ever on iPad, a trackpad that opens up new ways to work with iPadOS, a USB-C port for pass-through charging, and front and back protection. And it features a floating cantilevered design, allowing you to attach iPad Pro magnetically and smoothly adjust it to the perfect viewing angle for you.
A full-sized keyboard designed for iPad Pro brings individual hard key caps and a scissor mechanism with 1 millimetre of travel for a responsive, comfortable and quiet typing experience. So go ahead, write your novel, knock out a business plan or tear through your inbox. And with backlit keys, you can get things done day or night.
The click-anywhere trackpad opens up a whole new way to work in iPadOS. It allows control of the new cursor in iPadOS, which is perfect for tasks like editing a spreadsheet, selecting text or simply doing everything from the trackpad. And you can navigate fluidly with familiar multi-Touch gestures, like swiping to go Home and switching between spaces.
Trackpad support opens up powerful new ways to use your iPad. The re-imagined cursor experience has been designed specifically to work in a touch-first environment. It’s contextual, so it transforms into the tool you need depending on the content you’re pointing to, like buttons, app icons and text. It’s perfect for tasks where you need an extra level of precision, like building a spreadsheet or editing text. You can also use intuitive trackpad gestures to quickly get around in iPadOS.
Whether you’re retouching a photo or illustrating a birthday card, the tilt and pressure sensitivity combined with the low latency of Apple Pencil enable all forms of artistic expression.2 And it charges while magnetically attached to your iPad Pro, so it’s always ready when inspiration strikes.
Adobe Fresco – Take notes
iPad is perfect for taking notes and organizing your thoughts. Sketch ideas in the Notes app as naturally as you do on paper, then catalogue them, share them or add them to a presentation. You can even search your handwritten notes. The App Store is also full of great apps that let you organize, annotate and take your notes to the next level.
Marking things up with Apple Pencil is a great way to get stuff done. Take a screenshot, then mark it up. Scan a document, then sign it right there on your iPad. You can also easily mark up and send a PDF, and even draw directly in apps like Keynote.
Goes where no laptop would dare.
Thin, light and durable
iPad Pro is incredibly capable while still being easy to carry with you everywhere, so you can slip it into a backpack or rest it on a tray table. And it has up to 10 hours of battery life to keep you going all day.3
iPad Pro is the ultimate mobile workstation. You can print, project and send files wirelessly. The USB-C port lets you connect all types of accessories, like a camera, external drive or display. Ultrafast Wi-Fi and 4G LTE Advanced (4G only select models) lets you stay connected everywhere. And when it’s time to stream your favourite show or listen to your party playlist, iPad Pro has an amazing Four Speaker Audio system built in.
Like every Apple product, iPad was designed with your privacy and security in mind. It’s not always easy. But that’s the kind of innovation we believe in.
