Apple today introduced a new iPad Pro. This is how the new Apple tablet, new cameras, more power, and a new keyboard have arrived. Although without a doubt, what is most surprising is the choice to include a new LIDAR sensor.
Apple has been busy this morning with a new Macbook Air and a refreshed iPad Pro. The brand describes its new tablet as the most advanced to date. And says in the statement that it can be more potent than “most Windows PC laptops.”
Retaining Apple’s signature design, this new iPad Pro hides an Apple A12Z Bionic chip that promises to take on the heaviest of tasks. What’s more, the presentation has come accompanied by a promotional video. That shows everything we can do with it: edit 4K videos or make 3D designs, and more.
As we said, the design is what we used to see in Apple stores, but in the back, the protagonists are a large number of cameras. Three in total spread over a primary 12 Mpx sensor. This follows a 10 Mpx 125-degree whole angle sensor and a third 2x zoom sensor.
A configuration is reminiscent of the triple camera featured on the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max. The functions of these cameras are also the Smart HDR, 4K recording at 60 FPS with a wide angle. Selfies can take with the front camera, a seven-megapixel TrueDepth sensor with f / 2.2 aperture.
At the front, the screen can be 11 or 12.9 inches, two versions that also differ in resolution. As indicated in the table above. Apple has thought about gaming consumption, and both versions have a 120 Hz refresh rate and P3 color space. And oleophobic and anti-reflective coating.
We find speakers, microphones, the start button, and a USB Type-C port at the edges. Apple has emphasized this new iPad Pro’s five receivers to improve the audio recording quality. This is an essential complement to photographic equipment. All four speakers adapt to orientation, consistently delivering an immersive horizontal. And vertical experience.
The brand wants this tablet to be a perfect team for content creators and designers. Next month, it will introduce new apps like FiLMiC Pro’s DoubleTake that use the iPad Pro’s cameras. And microphones to turn it into a portable video production studio. For this, you must also have a great heart that takes care of the performance of so much work.
Higher power and LIDAR sensor
Inside is the Apple A12Z Bionic processor and a 64-bit chip made up of Neural Engine and the M12 co-processor. Also, to share the processor. Both the small and large models offer the same internal storage variations. 128, 256, or 512 GB or reach up to the terms of memory. What is not yet known is RAM.
Above all this, the main novelty that attracts all eyes to this new iPad Pro is the LIDAR sensor. A laser sensor is designed to measure the distance of objects. And understand the depth of the scene before you. The sensor used by Apple is capable of calculating the distance to objects located at the largest of 5 meters. That is also to the information collected by cameras. And motion sensors to improve results. Especially in augmented reality applications.
Apple gives, as an example, the use of the Measurements application. The LIDAR sensor can now calculate a person’s height or measure objects easier, faster, and with greater precision.
Finally, we can highlight the arrival of iPadOs 13.4. It’s a new version of the operating system that includes trackpad support. And allows this tablet to be more like a laptop. It is not a copy of macOS but a complete interface transformation. News that complement’s by the new floating keyboard that has present’s with this new model.
The new Magic Keyboard is a keyboard with adjustable inclination and backlit. That includes a USB port to charge the Apple tablet while we work. It is also the Multi-Touch gestures on the trackpad and Apple Pencil that improves the experience of use. The keyboard will go on sale in May.
