Apple unveiled its latest iPad Pro models and Mac computers at an event in Brooklyn on Tuesday, offering long-awaited updates to some of its most popular devices.
The new iPad Pros eliminate the home button and incorporate Apple's facial recognition technology, Face ID, that was introduced with the company's iPhone X product line last year.
The tablets feature the same edge-to-edge LCD display that Apple introduced with the recently released iPhone XR, and they come with 11- and 12.9-inch displays. The Pro is thinner than ever and comes with sharper edges.
The iPads run on A12X bionic chips, a notch more powerful than Apple's high-end iPhone XS and XS Max smartphones. They ship with up to 1 terabyte of storage, and trade out Apple's typical Lightning port for a USB-C port, similar to high-end computers. The USB-C port will also let users connect accessories like digital cameras and high-resolution desktop displays to the iPad Pro. It does not have a traditional headphone jack, which means you will need an adapter to plug in your headphones.
The new iPad Pro starts at $799 for the 11-inch model and $999 for the 12.9-inch model. Both models are available to order Tuesday and will arrive on Nov. 7.
Apple updated its high-tech stylus, the Apple Pencil, as well. It now magnetically attaches to the tablet to charge wirelessly. It also has touch gestures for switching between digital drawing tools on the iPad.
