Apple MacBook Pro 2017 vs. Microsoft Surface Laptop: Price, Specs And More

But while the new, 10.5-inch model mostly stole the show, the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro got a refresh as well, offering all of the same improvements inside a larger form factor, which could prove to be convenient regardless of whether you're an artist, or simply a big screen enthusiast.

We're still in the midst of putting the iPad Pro through its paces after coming back from WWDC, and given the new A10X chip inside of it, we'll be sure to stress it as much as possible. But the real reason you will eventually want to buy Apple's newest iPad hasn't happened yet. To summarise its importance to the iPad, iOS 11 integrates a new Mac-esque Dock and adds a new Files app that puts all your files into one place including those on iCloud and other cloud services, among others. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro retails for between $799 and $1,229.

Before we look at the pros and cons of the new iPad Pro, context is important.

The 10.5 inch iPad Pro is available this week online or in-store starting at $650.

Since Christmas the older 9.7-inch iPad Pro has played an ever increasing role in my day-to-day work.

Content is both the problem and the solution for Apple.

The new iPads are initially available in 38 countries, which include Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and USA.

There is little reason to consider an iPad Pro, which starts at about $649, if you are not also planning to purchase the optional $159 Apple Smart Keyboard or $99 Apple Pencil. ProMotion is also adaptive; ergo, it can switch from 60Hz to 120Hz, depending on what you're doing, for more fluid use. Moreover, the system further goes on to pack four different Thunderbolt 3 ports that are powerful enough to drive multiple 5K displays all at once as well.
