Apple WWDC 2017: The 5 Biggest Announcements

But for the past few years, iPad sales have declined steadily, offsetting growth elsewhere within the company. For some it might be a laptop that they carry around. The 15-inch MacBook Pro now comes standard with more powerful discrete graphics with more video memory, and the 13-inch MacBook Pro adds a new S$1,898 configuration.

Based on the demonstrations Apple has shared, the software update will make the iPad much more like a laptop, using Apple's familiar file structure plus a number of multitasking features that will make it feel more robust. But is it practical? Both laptops received a rather woeful 1/10 repairability score from iFixit, although that's nothing new for Apple's notebooks. This could encourage price-sensitive customers to try the iPad, while giving owners of older iPad models a cheap upgrade option.

According to another report published by Mac World, Apple iMac Pro 2017 might pack the 27-inch high-quality 5K display with a support of over 1 billion colors as well. Aside that Apple updated the existing products like the MacBook with Intel's new Kaby Lake processors, the tech company chose to use the conference to please its pro users with its new iMac as well as iMac Pro desktop computers.

There were a number of changes to this device, first and the biggest of them all was the inclusion of the touchbar. Security is provided by Touch ID's fingerprint sensor. If the prospect of diving into a bunch of reviews of consumer tech's most "meh" product segment isn't overly appealing to you, don't worry because we've got you covered with this quick iPad Pro review roundup.

When Apple expanded the iPad Pro's screen from 9.7-in.to 10.5-in., it simultaneously shrunk the pool of those who can run Microsoft's Office apps free of charge. I also do 100% of my work from a computer, often needing to tote my computer to various places in order to do so. But for everything else - for school, work, or anything that might require the use of a full-fledged computer program, the iPad Pro falls short. Like other scanning apps, this lets users scan single or multi-page documents.

Other than that, however, much has remained the same, even some of the chips used are exactly the same. Yes, and No. Yes, it is possible and it can happen.

On the occasion of WWDC 2017 Apple announced several updates. The iPad Pro also has its own Pencil, one that you wish would come with the iPhone. In addition to that, the iPad devices are lightweight, and are easy to carry around as well when compared to a MacBook.

Along with the launch of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, there is now a new Leather Sleeve ($188) that comes in brown, taupe, black and blue.

Since processing power is the topic, set aside the smaller storage for now. The Pro 9.7in boosted that to 500 nits.

As per MacBook and MacBook Pro are concerned, their processor has been upgraded and provides faster SSDs. This only makes it clearer that the iPad Pro is a tablet, not a laptop or a desktop.
