This is Apple's best iPad ever - here's why

Is it just a big iPhone? Is it a new kind of computer?

The resized 10.5-inch iPad Pro starts at $649, and it's available starting next week.

The iPad Pro is the flawless mobile office. It adds a lot of the things iPad fans have been begging for. But you won't get it until later this fall. And, finally revealed the new iOS 11 features that will be coming to the iPad. let's take a look at the seven cool features coming to the iPad. Multi-tasking on the iPad Pro is going to be PC-like or even better once iOS11 drops making this a real alternative to the PC. While seeing your own reflection is inevitable, I do find watching movies or playing games to be less intrusive. With fairly consistent use (by which I mean I barely put it down) and screen brightness set to auto, the iPad Pro lasted about three days before needing a charge. Apple has completely revamped the control center and made it customisable.

For the iPad tablet there will be a new Pro model with a 10.5in screen, up from the current 9.7in.

Switching between them will also be easier than ever, as you can swipe upward to open and close the different applications.

After the tech has been used once, your iPhone will prompt you to launch it whenever it thinks you're driving - you'll be able to dismiss the notice if you're a passenger or on a train or bus. However, integrating these options was dependent on the app developer. But it is 0.8mm thinner and 215g lighter than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

The outside isn't all that's changed. The screen looks more vivid, snappier, and interacts well with the Apple Pencil-an accessory sold at an additional $129 CAD. It's not quite the same feeling as drawing on paper, but I found that it's comfortable enough.

The iPad Pro range's display was already fabulous, and Apple has only improved on its clever screen technology with this year's revamped lineup.

Our review model of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro didn't come with iOS 11 (it won't be officially released until the autumn) but I had a chance to play around with the new OS at WWDC and it's worth noting a few of its features, as they stand to provide some major upgrades to the iPad Pro. It doesn't appear there will be a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro any time soon, since Apple is now using that form factor for its most affordable iPad, which doesn't support Apple Pencil input. It looks almost identical to the dock in macOS. You can reinstall the app when you need it later and continue to use it.

This has now changed with the addition of one of its new rules, stating that tipping is considered "an in-app purchase", and must undergo Apple's internal App Store payment system. We mostly rolled our eyes because the claim didn't hold much water and Microsoft had a field day taking Apple to the cleaners. Better late than never. To my surprise the iPad Pro will fit into the Sleeve even with the keyboard on. "It's a good way to input notes when you don't have keyboards accessible". There aren't any function keys. Keep holding down the Home button or Volume Down button until you see a Connect to iTunes screen on your iPhone or iPad.
