Apple’s New iPad Pro Comes With Magic Keyboard And LIDAR Scanner


Apple has just announced a new iPad Pro with a A12Z bionic chip and an ultra-wide camera. The latest iPad Pro features “Magic Keyboard” and LIDAR scanner in the camera for better depth sensing and AR capabilities.

The iPad flaunts A12Z Bionic chip and Apple claims that it is more powerful and “faster than most PC laptops.”

The eight-core GPU with enhanced thermal architecture makes the new iPad Pro unbeatable in terms of performance. What’s more, is that along with all that, it also offers an incredible battery life of 10 hours.

Before the LIDAR scanner, Apple used cameras in iPads to enable the AR. However, The LIDAR scanner takes the Augmented Reality to a “whole new class.” In addition to that, new iPads are also equipped with cameras with wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses.

The main highlight of the newly announced Apple iPad Pro is the Magic Keyboard. The keyboard features a “floating design, backlit keyboard, and a trackpad specifically designed for iPad”. The trackpad will make navigation around the display much easier with a mouse cursor.

So, Apple didn’t lie when they said that the new iPad Pro is “your next computer isn’t a computer.”

The trackpad support will be available from March 24 as a free software update for all iPad Pro models, iPad Air 2, iPad 5th generation, and iPad mini 4.

On the other hand, Magic Keyboard will be available in May for $299 and $349 for 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models respectively.

The 11-inch iPad Pro model is starting from $799 whereas you can grab the 12.9-inch version for $949. The new iPad Pro will hit stores next week but is available for pre-order online on
