Apple spruces up Macs, iPad Pros and raises prices

"You should only get a new iPad Pro if you're gonna be pushing its power".

The list below includes 2018 iPad Pro skins from our favorite skin companies. Not yet, at least. Finally, Apple's Q4 2018 earnings once again set records, but investors were spooked by flat and declining unit sales, as well as Apple's refusal to release those numbers in the future.

Let's start with the good.

Apple claims that the iPad Pro is now faster than 92 percent of all recently sold portable PCs.

Next, this model is the first to have a USB-C port instead of a Lighting port, in order to give users "a high-performance connection to accessories like an external display or camera". Most people I showed our space gray review unit to thought it looked cool, but I think it's kind of brutal looking - nearly like a reference design. If you're looking for a true laptop replacement, the Surface Pro 6 is a better option. Apple probably doesn't want people buying the cheapest storage option and augmenting that with a cheap external storage device; it would lose out on a lot of money.




"I tried a handful of USB-C hubs with an assortment of USB-A, HDMI, card readers, and Ethernet ports, and everything worked as intended... other stuff didn't work, though: printers didn't do anything. Using USB-C means you can charge it with your MacBook charger and it also supports reverse charging - so you could use it to charge your iPhone if your battery is low".

Which leads us to prices. But if you're thinking about spending $799 on the cheapest 64GB 11-inch iPad Pro to replace your laptop, you should really ask yourself what you need a computer to do. Next in storage is 256 GB, S $1,419, followed by 512GB for $1,719, and 1TB for S$ 2,319.

The tablet comes in two variants of 11-inch and 12.9-inch oleophobic edge-to-edge liquid Retina display. The names may be "silver" and "space gray" but they're both just different shades of aluminum. AutoCAD 360 Mobile was used for the iPad Pro's initial launch in 2015. Reviewers found much to love with the improved pencil, which will come in handy for those who use their tablets for creative purposes.

For the record, the single-core performance of the A12X Bionic chipset inside the iPad Pro also tops the latest-generation of 12-inch MacBook (3,927 score), as well as the iMac Pro (5,021 score) which launched late previous year. It has eight cores: four for super demanding work, like playing Fortnite, and four more for easier tasks, like perusing your email. It also works when Apple's iPad keyboard is attached, Sanho said.
