If you’re looking to turn your new iPad Pro into a productivity powerhouse, then you’ll definitely need to add a keyboard to it. This is because if you’ve ever tried typing long-form essays or documents using the virtual keyboard, you know what a terrible experience that can be. The good news is that it looks like Zagg might have a couple of new options for you.
Apple recently launched their 2020 iPad Pros which came with a brand new A12Z chipset, improved GPUs, and more RAM. Given that the last time the iPad Pro was refreshed was back in 2018, we expected that the new models should prove to be a lot better than its predecessors, but that might not necessarily be the case.
Just last week, Apple announced a refresh of its MacBook Air laptops where it came with the latest Intel processors on board. However, it seems that if you wanted a more powerful machine, you could even consider the 2018 iPad Pro. This is according to benchmarks shared by Jason Snell on Six Colors in which he found that the 2018 iPad Pro actually outperforms the MacBook Air.
Just the other day, Apple launched their brand new iPad Pro tablets. The refreshed tablets come with upgraded processors, more RAM, an additional camera, and a LiDAR scanner. However, it seems that despite these significant upgrades, Apple could still have another iPad Pro tablet planned for 2020.
Now that Apple’s physical stores are being closed until further notice, this means that customers who want to check out the company’s products will only have images on the internet to deal with. However, if you want to check out Apple’s latest iPad Pro in-person, you can sort of do that thanks to the use of augmented reality technology.
Earlier today, Apple announced the launch of their brand new iPad Pros and alongside the new tablets, the company also unveiled a new Smart Keyboard accessory that comes with a built-in trackpad. However, this new accessory only works with the latest iPad Pros and the previous-gen iPad Pros.
If there is one criticism to be made about the Smart Keyboard accessory for the iPad Pro, it would be that it’s not particularly pleasant to type on (although much better compared to using an on-screen keyboard). For those looking to make the iPad Pro a potential laptop replacement, it looks like that reality is here.
According to the rumors, it has been suggested that at least some of Apple’s 2020 iPhones could come with a “world facing” 3D camera. This is said to help improve on the iPhone’s augmented reality capabilities by introducing a camera that is more accurate at sensing its environment.
With every release of a new A-series chipset, Apple naturally improves on the performance of it. However, what was impressive is that with the 2018 iPad Pro, benchmarks found that the A12X Bionic chipset was actually more powerful compared to Windows-based PCs, at least that’s what it seemed on paper.
One of the selling points of the iPad Pro is the Smart Keyboard accessory that is sold separately. So far it only acts as a keyboard but according to a report from The Information (paywall), it seems that Apple has plans on upgrading it where a new model with a built-in trackpad could be launched later this year.
Apple’s iPads have never really been known for their photography. While they do come with cameras, admittedly there is a good chance that most of us would probably prefer to use our iPhones rather than our iPads to snap a photo. However, this doesn’t mean that Apple will ignore this part of the tablet.
At the moment, Apple’s iPad Pros are offered in either an 11-inch version or a 12.9-inch version. Many have praised the larger displays as it is better for viewing media as well as drawing, but now a report suggests that either Apple could be planning on downsizing the larger iPad, or introducing a slightly smaller variant.
If you’re thinking about getting yourself an iPad Pro, you might want to consider holding off for now. This is because according to a report from DigiTimes, it seems that the publication is claiming that Apple could be planning on introducing an iPad Pro refresh this coming March. This lines up with a recent rumor that claims Apple could host an event in March for its new iPhone SE 2.
According to the rumors, it is believed that Apple will most likely be hopping on the 5G bandwagon this year with its new lineup of iPhones. However, if a new report from DigiTimes is to be believed, it seems that the iPhones will not be the company’s only 5G product this year, as apparently Apple could also be planning the launch of 5G iPad Pros.
