Apple iPad Pro 10.5 vs Pro 9.7

The disappointing revelation about the new MacBook Pro models is that they still come capped at 16GB RAM, which Phil Schiller explained previous year that this limit was observed in order to conserve battery life. That's why I applaud Apple's decision not to unduly alter the 12-inch, ultra-thin (0.14-inch thick), 2-pound MacBook.

Apple called the iMac Pro the "most powerful Mac we've ever made", and CEO Tim Cook called it "badass" onstage.

Before we get into this debate, let's take a quick look at the new iPad Pros and the features they will get with the launch of iOS 11. Now Apple has revealed the India price of the new MacBooks, iMacs, and these are listed on the Apple website. One can dream, no? The Surface Pro runs Windows 10 Pro.

The 10.5 model starts at £619 for the 64GB version.

At Apple's conference this week, Apple announced sweeping changes to macOS and the coming of iOS 11.

Why settle for a purely cloud-based device such as a Chromebook PC which only really works with the cloud? The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at $38.74 a month for 24 months; 0% April, on Verizon device payment ($829.99 with a 2-yr contract, $929.99 full retail). Like in the case of the 10.5inch iPads, here also the cellular arrangement will push these prices up by another Rs.11,000 across the board.

Arguably the most interesting of these developments is the ability to drag and drop files from one location to another. It's scheduled to officially roll out sometime this fall after a number of public and private beta releases.

Apple fitted its new A10x processor into the iPad - a processor that offers power to rival midrange desktops. In the section of cameras, the iPad variants offer 12 MP rear camera along with aperture f/1.8 and capability of capturing 4K resolution video (similar to the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 consist). And the iMac Pro, teased for a release at the end of the year, looks like it could replace the Mac Pro for many users. The tech giant has now demonstrated how users can place a virtual lamp and coffee cup on to a real desk using the iPad Pro's camera.

Both the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro Tablets are now available for pre-order at Best Buy with their respective gift cards.

Instead of updating the MacBook Air, which Apple is doing in the short-term, the long-term plan is just under the surface: Slowly phase out the MacBook Air in favor of the iPad Pro.

Both Apple's and Microsoft's offerings, the iPad Pro and Surface Pro, respectively, are pretty stellar tablets targeted for professional users who need a device chiefly for media consumption, productivity, and portability.
