The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the first iPad to support HDR video
Seven years of iPad evolution have led to this moment.
The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro’s got a 20% larger screen, but its dimensions aren’t significantly bigger than the 9.7-inch iPad thanks to 40% slimmer bezels. The display’s not quite edge-to-edge as rumored for the iPhone 8, but it’s still nice to see the bezels get shrunken down. It weighs only 1 pound.
Speaking of the screen, it’s got all the perks of the 9.7-inch iPad, including support for DCI-P3 Wide Color Gamut for a wider range of visible colors, and True Tone, which adjusts the white balance of the screen based on the ambient light in a room.
Powering the new iPad Pro is a new, desktop-class A10X Fusion chip with six-cores and a 12-core GPU with 40 faster graphics than the A9X.
The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro’s also got all of the “pro” features from previous models such as a quad speakers (firing from the top and bottom), a three-dot Smart Connector for attaching a keyboard, and Apple Pencil support.
And thankfully, Apple didn’t feel courageous enough to remove the headphone jack. It lives another day on iPad!
