Tech Guide has taken a hands-on look at Apple’s new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro which now has an all-screen design and no longer includes a home button.
The first thing you notice about the updated iPad Pro, which just been released in stores, is the display which now goes top to bottom and edge to edge.
Without a home button the iPad Pro now uses Face ID to unlock the device just like the iPhone XS and iPhone XR.
Another striking feature about the iPad Pro is its svelte proportions – it’s just 5.9mm thick.
There is also a single 12-megapixel camera lens on the rear panel which extends slightly beyond the thickness of the device.
The 11-inch iPad Pro is about the same size as the previous 10.5-inch model but without the home button the screen takes up even more space.
The 12.9-inch is 25 per cent smaller the previous model which was a huge device.
Now in your hands it’s smaller, lighter and lot easier to manage.
The Apple Pencil (which is sold separately for $199) can now be attached magnetically along one of longest sides.
There is a small spot marked on the edge where the Apple Pencil needs to be placed.
And not only will it be held in place it is also being charged as well.
When it is placed on the side, a small window appears to show the charge level of the Apple Pencil.
