The October Apple Event has just ended. Three new Apple devices were unveiled at the event – A new MacBook Air, iPad Pro and Mac Mini.
Here’s a quick look at how they stack up.
iPad Pro 2018
The new iPad Pro has been completely redesigned. It looks like a tablet version of the iPhone XS Max except without the notch.
Here’s why we think it will be a gamechanger:
- An edge-to-edge Liquid Retina Display
- Powerful A12X Bionic processor
- Buttonless with Face ID
- Next-gen Apple Pencil that charges wirelessly when it snaps to the iPad Pro magnetically
- New Smart Keyboard Folio
- iPad Pro uses a USB-C connection which can be used to charge other devices
It comes in two variants, an 11-inch and a huge 12.9-inch version available in Space Grey and Silver colours. Prices start from S$1,199 for the 11-inch and S$1,499 for the 12.9-inch display.
