Apple unveils an all-new, all-screen iPad Pro

Apple today introduced a new-look iPad Pro with an all-screen design marking the biggest change to the product since it was introduced more than eight years ago.

Now the 11-inch and 12.9-inch Liquid Retina displays go all the way to the edge of the device which now features rounded corners and a new unibody enclosure.

The new 11-inch iPad Pro has a bigger display area and more pixels but retains the same footprint as the 10.5-inch model.

The 12.9-inch version of the new iPad Pro has the largest display of any iPad but is 25 per cent smaller in volume than the previous version.

And like the iPhone XS, the home button is no more with Face ID introduced to unlock the device at a glance.

And without a home button, the iPad Pro now uses the same gestures as the iPhone XS to get to the home screen.

The new iPad Pro is powered by the A12X Bionic chip to meet the needs of users who will be able to complete the most demanding computing tasks on the move like editing photos, creating 3D models and editing video.

It is built on seven nanometre technology so it can deliver a new level of performance while still offering all day use with up to 10 hours of battery life.

Apple has also incorporated its next generation Neural Engine which is built for advanced machine learning to assist in everything from photography to augmented reality.

It is capable of up to 5 trillion operations per second.

The new iPad Pro has improved four speaker audio so the device can also be used to enjoy your content.

But when combined with advanced cameras and sensors, the iPad Pro and its A12X Bionic chip, it can transform the iPad Pro into one of the best devices for stunning augmented reality experiences.

Apple has also redesigned Apple Pencil which can now be attached magnetically to iPad Pro for pairing and wireless charging. It can also respond to double taps.

The tool will become an even more powerful and intuitive way to interact with the device.

Apple has also replaced the Lightning connector with a new USB-C connector which makes the iPad Pro even easier to use as a laptop replacement.

Now users can take advantage of the USB-C port to not only charge the device but now also use it to quickly transfer data as well.

With USB-C, the iPad Pro can even be used to charge an iPhone.

Apple has also unveiled a new Smart Keyboard Folio to protect the front and back of iPad Pro with a thin and light design that still manages to include a full-sized keyboard that never needs to be charged or paired.

It is adjustable for lap or desktop use and can transform the iPad Pro into a powerful laptop replacement.

The new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be available in silver and space grey finishes and in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities along with an all-new 1TB option.

The 11-inch iPad Pro is priced at $1,229 (64GB), $1,449 (256GB), $1,749 (512GB) and $2,349 (1TB).

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is priced at $1,529 (64GB) ), $1,749 (256GB), $2,049 (512GB) and $2,649 (1TB).

They will be available from November 7.
