Without any sort of prior announcement, Apple introduced Wednesday an updated iPad Pro and MacBook Air, both of which are sporting (or can sport via an attachment) a refreshed Magic keyboard.

Apple’s most advanced iPad got a performance-enhancing upgrade: An A12Z Bionic chip. The new processor supports an eight-core CPU and the company’s Neural Engine to give professional creators more intelligent performance, longer battery life, and stronger connectivity.

The rear is outfitted with a double camera array consisting of a 12MP Wide camera and a 10MP Ultra-Wide camera. According to Apple, “adding a second camera doubles the photo and video possibilities, enabling different perspectives, and multi-camera use.” The lenses are complemented by a series of five microphones that record studio-quality audio.

An integrated LiDAR Scanner gives the iPad the capacity to measure objects around it up to 5 meters away. Because of this new method of understanding a scene, the device can deliver AR experiences more in tune with real-life than previous generations.

With the simultaneous launch of iOS 13.4, the iPad Pro gains trackpad support, offering users a more laptop-like experience than ever, a tool which people can enjoy with the brand’s new Magic Keyboard. The attachment provides a full-size experience complete with scissor-style, backlit keys.
