New iPad Pro makes a compelling case towards buying a MacBook ever again
AppleSince Apple is in fact not protecting any large press events anytime soon (no company is, that's for sure), it in its place announced its latest iPad Pro with a simple online press unlock. The unencumber includes some images and goes over the new features available with the genre-defining tablet.
As expected, the design of the 2020 iPad Pro fits with the designs of the 2019 iPhone 11 series, including that love-it-or-hate-it rear camera module. The camera comprises a first sensor, an ultra-wide secondary sensor, and a LiDAR sensor for help with depth.While that's all cool, the massive news with the brand new iPad Pro is not about the tablet at all, but rather an accessory for the tablet. The new Magic Keyboard accessory includes something Apple has fought for years: a trackpad. With this — and a software update to iPad OS 13.4 to support it — the iPad Pro now turns into less of a tablet and more of a laptop, comparable to Microsoft's long-working line of Surface PCs.Whether you like …
While it's doubtful at the moment what Apple's plan is for this, it's a special opportunity that the iPad will now start cannibalizing Apple's own sales of its conventional MacBook laptops much more than it already has.

There are four storage configurations beginning at 128GB and going all of the way as high as 1TB.There also are Wi-Fi-only and LTE models.The entry price for a new iPad Pro is $799 for the 11-inch, 128GB, Wi-Fi-only model. That does not come with the Magic Keyboard, which costs $299 for the 11-inch model, bringing the lowest price for an "iPad laptop" to $1,100, or about the entry price of a MacBook Pro.The iPad Pro is available to buy today but the Magic Keyboard won't hit store cabinets until May.com/i/blog/1600665528/aHR0cHM6Ly9jZG41Ny5hbmRyb2lkYXV0aG9yaXR5Lm5ldC93cC1jb250ZW50L3VwbG9hZHMvMjAyMC8wOS9BcHBsZS1FdmVudC1UaW0tQ29vay0yMDB4MTMwLmpwZw%3D%3D">
