Apple recently updated its Ipad Pro lineup with the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2017 models. The newly released powerful iOS tablets have made quite the buzz with its upgraded specs and features, and the devices are a huge threat to Microsoft's Surface Pro.

As the 10.5-inch iPad Pro would be dependent on the iOS 11 operating system, the new tablet has replaced the iPad Pro 9.7-inch model. The powerful iOS tablet now offers a 12MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, a larger display, and ProMotion display technology with up to 120Hz refresh rates, among others.

Device stands out over its rivals

However, as reported by Tech Republic, the 10.5-inch model’s functionality and its impressiveness depend largely on the iOS 11 operating system. Although the 10.5-inch iPad Pro gives out its best performance results for creative field professionals and businessmen, the tablet is created around an A10X Fusion chipset. The special effects app with added bumps of graphics is the reason why the device stands out over its competitors.

iPad Pro specs

Apple’s new iPad Pro models are also available with a Retina display with 2732 x 2048 pixel resolution. The high-end devices are also compatible with Smart Keyboard as well as the Apple Pencil.

The ProMotion feature of the new powerful tablets combined with an impressive graphics power would make every animation of the devices extremely smooth.

However, with iOS 11 on board, the typing experience on the devices gets even better, as the tech giant’s new software keyboard comes along with a second set of symbols. Apple’s new mobile operating system also boasts the multi-tasking, as well as the drag and drop options.

Nonetheless, the new iOS tablets are now available with a four speaker audio system, Apple SIM embedded within, and a second-gen fingerprint identity sensor.

In terms of connectivity, the devices are equipped with LTE, AGPS, GLONASS, a dual band Wi-Fi ac and a Bluetooth v4.2. Also, one of the most important features of the iPad Pros is the battery life, which could be used up to 10 hours.

In spite of that, due to the expensive price point of the 10.5-inch Pro, several tech experts described the device as a stupendous tablet. Also, as the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard are add-ons, competitors like Windows 10 tablets might offer better hardware customization options for accessories.
