There are 2 versions to choose from - with different diagonals. We are talking about 11-inch and 12.9-inch variants. Displays are of the Liquid Retina type and support ProMotion technology. The refresh rate is 120 Hz.

One of the key features of the "tablet" is the LIDAR scanner. It detects the depth of space and estimates the distance to objects. This is important for AR applications. Complement the configuration of two cameras - 12 and 10 MP.

The "heart" of the iPad Pro is the A12Z Bionic processor. According to Apple, it is more efficient than the CPUs of many laptops. This is confirmed by synthetic tests.

The amount of RAM is 6 GB. That much RAM is installed in any package. Previously, only the iPad Pro 2018 with a 1TB drive had that much.

In addition, the U1 chip (as in the iPhone 11) was not spared. The latter endows the iPad Pro with spatial orientation. Why? To track the location of other "apple" gadgets.

The Magic Keyboard case deserves special attention. First of all, it is full-size. The differences from MacBook are minimal. The mechanism is scissor-like, you can not worry about reliability.

Secondly, there is a backlight (to work in the dark). The stroke of the keys is 1 mm. The angle of inclination is adjustable. Do you want 45 degrees? Not a problem. The trackpad is also nice. With the cursor and Multi-Touch will not be difficult.

Magnets are used as attachment. Just attach Magic Keyboard to the back of the iPad Pro. The tablet is held in place by a special mechanism.

Among other things, Magic Keyboard is equipped with USB-C. With it, the iPad Pro charges. Unfortunately, the accessory is not free, it is bought separately. The Russian price - from 26 990 to 30 990 rubles (depending on the model).
