Apple iPad Pro 2018: Six Key Features That Make It Different

Apple to announce new MacBook Air, Mac mini and iPad Pro with FaceID on October 30

Although benchmark tests aren't ideal, the scores still underscore how powerful Apple's chips have gotten.

Apple earlier this week launched new Mac Mini, iPad Pro and Macbook Air in the US.

But Apple's new iPad Pro, which was announced on Tuesday, has a processor that's almost as fast as high-end laptops, according to an early Geekbench score, which tests processor speeds.

Apple has been rumored for years to be building a Mac computer based on one of its own ARM chips, which would enable it to greatly increase battery life at the expense of raw power. It includes features from the latest iPhones. But what's also equally evident is that the 11-inch model fits in a form-factor no bigger than the previous slim-bezel 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and the larger 12.9-inch variant is noticeably smaller than its predecessor.

"Apple has long believed that the iPad ushers in a new wave of computing, and the new iPad Pro gets substantive updates in both design and performance", says Greengart.

Greengart believes the new MacBook Air is so good, it will steal sales from the MacBook and MacBook Pro. Apple has revised prices of iMac Pro with Retina Display by up to Rs 49,900.

The scores reveal an astonishing fact that iPad Pro 2018 delivers performance similar to 2018 MacBook Pro! The technology first appeared on the MacBook Pro line-up in 2015 and had been "overdue" on the Air range, says The Daily Telegraph.

The tech giant has swapped out the old model's fourth generation Intel processor for an eighth generation quad-core chip, with a six-core version available for a fee, The Verge reports.

The Mac Mini unveiled Tuesday - the latest version of Apple's high performance mini desktop computer - is also manufactured with completely recycled aluminum and plastic as well. Apple has carried over the HDMI and handphone ports from the old model as well.
