We’ve been hearing rumours about it for a long time and finally Apple has decided: the iPad Pro is now a reality and Apple has presented it as ” the biggest iPad news since the iPad “.

Finally it is confirmed that the 12.9 inch screen for the iPad Pro . This screen has a resolution of 2732 x 2048 pixels , representing a total of 5.6 million pixels in total, a figure higher than that of the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina. The company points out that it is the best screen they have ever made and insists on the high quality of the screen in areas such as color reproduction.

The iPad Pro comes as a superior tablet in most laptops

The heart of the new iPad Pro is a processor A9x . Apple has defined it as a third-generation 64-bit chip, with twice the memory of the A8X, the most powerful processor Apple has ever made. According to the company, the iPad Pro offers a performance of over 80% of notebooks sold in recent months, up to 22 times more powerful than the original iPad, and in the graphics section they claim that it achieves better performance than 90% of notebooks . We don’t know how these references have been taken, but if confirmed they would be truly amazing figures for a tablet.

Apple knows how important the autonomy is in a device like this and that’s why they have worked so that, despite the bigger screen and the new more powerful components, the autonomy is not affected. That’s why the iPad Pro offers up to 10 hours of battery life , which is perfect for use throughout the day or when you’re on the go.

Apple does not usually confirm all the technical characteristics of its products when it presents them, so we will have to wait a little longer to find out the exact figures. What they have indicated is that the new tablet has 4 speakers to provide better sound . The total weight of the set is 710 grams; a fairly contained weight for a device of its dimensions and the maximum thickness is 6.9 mm.
