iPad Pro Gets Down To Business

Thursday, September 17th, 2015 by | Filed Under: iOS

Apple launched the tablet revolution with the iPad, but it has faced stiff competition from Android, and most recently from Microsoft’s well-received Surface Pro tablet.

The company is stepping up it’s game with the 12.9 ” $799 iPad Pro (the biggest iPad ever.)

In addition to the size, the iPad pro features a detachable Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil. Both features that might remind you of a Surface Pro.  Like the Surface keyboard, it converts to a cover for your device, making it lightweight and easy to carry.

According to Apple each keyboard “is crafted from a sheet of highly durable custom-woven fabric that’s laser ablated to form the shape of each key.”  They promise this leads to a keyboard that gives you the spring of a mechanical keyboard without the need for mechanisms of any kind.  The cover will cost $169.

The Apple Pencil will give precision control to graphic artists, and like an actual pencil can determine the heaviness of lines by how much pressure you put on the pencil. It even allow users to shade a drawing, just like a graphite pencil.

The pencil charges by being plugged into the iPad Pro with a Lightning connector. Apple says you can get up to 12 hours worth of charging by charging the pencil for just 2 minutes.  The Apple Pencil will cost $99.

The Pro features nearly double the CPU performance of an iPad Air 2 and the same 3D touch features as the iPhone 6s. Apple also promises improved speakers, better cameras, and upgraded WiFi connectivity.

Unlike Microsoft’s Surface Pro Line and Surface 3, the iPad Pro doesn’t run Mac Desktop programs. So you’re still getting a souped-up tablet instead of a full PC. The iPad Pro starts at $799 for the 32GB WiFi only model and runs up to $1079 for the 128GB WiFi & Cellular model. It will be available in November.

    Well what do you know it’s ^ here!
    few weeks ago I just gone through troubled time somewhat replacing an irreplaceable speaker version of a 3rd gen, with a 4th after these 2 Mormons came to my place doing a stolen shifty on me! So I bought 3 iPads as a 4th & 2 5th generations as 1 for spare! & all at Apple are saying “oh no iPads are maxed out since Air-2’s thin design won’t go further! I say “I read they’re planning a bigger, faster pad + “upgrade speakers” since their depletion of 5th & 6th generation, since iPad’s TTS speaker feature seems a superior narrator over all devices! That’s handy for saving on reading efforts OR use as mental-training-wheels to aid reading fluency being use as a guiding efficiency tool, as for that use it’s what I find worthy in a good iPad!

    I forgot to mention, with good iPad’s with its nice crisp sounding quality “TTS-text2speech” the speaking rate can clock up to between 601-630wpm on maximum set speed that is perfectly comprehended in spoken clarity!
