iPAD PRO COMES TO INDIA WITH A STYLUS & SMART KEYBOARDby Rajshree Faria December 16, 2015
A Cupertino based company has finally come up with a tablet that will help all those sick, tech- savvy people regain their optimal functioning. Of course, by “Cupertino” we mean Apple Inc., by “tablet” we mean the iPad Pro, and by “sick, tech-savvy” we mean the thousands of tab users who eagerly wait for the launch of the latest iPad from one of the world’s most innovative technology companies.
Like all things Apple, this is one smooth looking device sporting a 12.9” 2732 x 2048 pixel Retina Display, with a frame so sleek that its 6.9mm thickness could be the ‘size zero’ of the tablet world!
With 5.6 million luminous pixels, the iPad Pro has the most superior resolution amongst all its fellow iOS devices. With such a resolution, everything from 3D gaming to graphic designing promises to become more enjoyable.
With the iPad Pro, we also get to meet the new Apple Pen, a stylus designed for such precision, that even a laser surgery tool might feel shy! It uses extremely sensitive pressure and tilt sensors that can easily distinguish between the user’s attempt at shading, drawing a fine line, or simple writing.
Another very useful accessory to the new iPad Pro is the Smart Keyboard. It is a keyboard built into the tab’s cover. At just 4mm, the Smart Keyboard’s top layer is made out of highly durable custom-woven fabric that can withstand even the most ferocious typist’s fingertips. Adding to the smartness is the Smart Connector at the edge of the keyboard and at the side of the tab which works with the conductive fabric of the Smart Keyboard to allow for a two-way exchange of data and power. Umm, what does that mean? It simply means that you don’t need any wires, cables, or batteries to run your keyboard!
The iPad Pro is powered by the A9X, a 3rd Gen. chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture which gives 1.8 times the CPU performance and twice the graphics performance of the iPad Air 2.
With iOS 9, the iPad Pro can run hundreds of apps that cater to your various needs. The 12.9” screen allows for a comfortable split screen experience that makes multitasking like a piece of cake. Furthermore, the iPad Pro incorporates four speakers built into the tab itself.
No description of an Apple product is complete without mentioning their renowned iSight camera! The camera lets the user take HD videos as well as the usual brilliant shots. The FaceTime camera has an improved sensor, making all your video chats and shots clearer.
Unfortunately, all good things with an Apple logo on them come with a heavy price tag, and the iPad Pro is no different. If you wish to get your hands on the iPad Pro (Wi-Fi-only) 32GB variant, you will have to shell out Rs. 67,900, and for the storage loving user, the 128GB model is available for Rs 79,900. If mere Wi-Fi does not appeal to you, then you could opt for the 4G LTE variant, priced at Rs.91,900.
The biggest and the most advanced iPad from the brand so far, you may want to put this Apple in your cart if you think that this hybrid tablet can satiate your hunger for style, design, and performance.
