Apple iPad Pro: Can it replace your computer?

Apple iPad Pro

Last week,  Apple unveiled a new iPad Pro series similar to a laptop with an attachable backlit Magic Keyboard. The new iPad Pro is powered by the A12Z processor and has a camera cutout at the back similar to the iPhone 11.
The iPad offers the highest performance ever in an iPad which is possible because of the new A12Z Bionic chip. It has an 8-core CPU and 8-core Graphics Engine with Apple’s Neural Engine.
The Liquid Retina display on the iPad Pro is among the best screens on any mobile device. It is an IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2048 x 2732 pixel which has a screen to body ratio of 85.4%. The glass on the iPad Pro is scratch resistant with oleophobic coating. Having a rounded corner display wouldn’t be cool without a refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
With the A12Z processor, the 2020 iPad Pro models feature up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge – as we all know apple doesn’t really talk about their battery capacity. The iPad Pro features a USB-C port - similar to the 2018 models- for charging purposes. Also the USB-C port on the iPad can be used to charge other accessories like the iPhone and Apple Watch.
The 5 new studio quality microphones added to the iPad Pro allows for capturing “super clean audio” which also allows for an immersive sound experience in any orientation. Even tho the general design of the iPad Pro is still the same, there’s a new rear camera sytem with two camera, including a 12-megapixel wide angle camera and a 10-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera that can zoom out two times for a wider field of view.
Apples new attachable magic keyboard design for the 2020 iPad Pro makes the iPad have similar capabilities with a computer but it can not replace a computer. The Keyboard attaches magnetically to the iPad Pro -making it look like the iPad floats- and can be adjusted up to 130 degrees.
The iPad pro costs between $799 - $1499 depending on the specifications, while the keyboard which is said to be realeased in May would cost $299 for the 11 inch model and $349 for the 12.9 inch model.
