The iPad Pro returned this week with a pair of new designs and a bunch of new features. This new wave of iPad Pro included an iPad Pro 11-inch – with an 11-inch display inside the same physical size tablet as the 10.5 iPad Pro of the past. Then there’s a new iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation) model that’s got the same size display as the previous 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but now it’s running with a significantly smaller body.
Both new versions of the iPad Pro have a new no-home-button frontside, exchanging Touch ID for Face ID. To do this, they’ve earned themselves a set of cameras and sensors the like of which are otherwise found on the full iPhone X smartphone lineup. This new frontside means the iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation) both employ iPhone X iOS 12 gestures, too.
These new iPads have LCD displays and smaller bezels than before. Both versions come in Space Gray or Silver, and both have Liquid Retina display technology. Both have ProMotion technology (which means they’ve got a 120Hz display refresh rate) and True Tone display tech, too.
These new iPads have an A12X Bionic chip with Neural Engine under the hood, and 12MP cameras on their back. They’re compatible with the new Apple Pencil (2nd generation) and the new Smart Keyboard Folio and work with USB-C.
