Apple on Wednesday announced the all-new iPad Pro featuring the A12Z Bionic chip. Apple claims its addition to the iPad lineup is faster and more powerful than most Windows PC laptops. The new iPad Pro comes with an Ultra-Wide camera, a LiDAR Scanner for depth-sensing capabilities, among others. The LiDAR Scanner, combined with other offerings such as camera, motion sensors, and Liquid Retina display, makes the iPad Pro a wholesome package.
Apple has made the new iPad Pro will go on sale in India soon. Meanwhile, the company’s retail stores outside mainland China continue to remain closed ‘until further notice’ amid the ongoing coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.
Apple’s brand-new iPad Pro runs iPadOS 13.4 operating system out-of-the-box. Plus, the company has also brought support for the trackpad. Elaborating on the trackpad support, here’s what Apple has to say:
“Rather than copying the experience from macOS, trackpad support has been completely reimagined for iPad. As users move their finger across the trackpad, the pointer elegantly transforms to highlight user interface elements.”
The trackpad also enables multi-touch gestures for faster interaction.
