Apple’s new iPad Pro comes with a slick magic keyboard and iPhone cameras

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.
