Apple Reveals New 11-Inch and 12.9-Inch iPad Pro Models With Slim Bezels and Face ID

Apple today revealed the all-new iPad Pro, with an edge-to-edge LCD “Liquid Retina” display with slimmer bezels, no Home Button, Face ID, and a magnetic attachment support for the new Apple Pencil. The new iPad Pro has the same footprint as the previous 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but now with an 11-inch display thanks to the slimmer bezels. There’s also a 12.9-inch version that Apple says is almost exactly the same size as a looseleaf piece of paper.

Face ID is now on the iPad Pro, so you can log into the iPad, unlock apps, pay with Apple Pay, and more, all compatible in any orientation that the iPad is held. The iPad Pro supports all the same gestures as the iPhone X, XS, XS Max, and XR, since there’s also no more Home Button on iPad Pro. The tablets are powered by the new A12X Bionic chip, including an 8-core CPU that’s 35 percent faster than the previous generation. Apple says the iPad Pros are faster than 92 percent of the portable PCs sold in the last year.

iPad Pro will now support USB-C as well, and can refuel an iPhone when on-the-go.

More information about the new iPad Pros will come out of Apple’s event today…
