It's definitely not cheap, but the scores from Greekbench actually show that the A12X chip, that powers iPad Pro, has multi-core performance that can be comparable to the 2018's MacBook Pro (the one with 15 inches), that has Intel's six-core Core i7 chips. As a device for gaming, the new Pros are supposed to replace gaming consoles according to advertised user experience. MediaTek is also working on a 5G chip and Apple is keeping it as Plan B if things don't turn out be fruitful with Intel. The new Pencil and keyboard, the USB-C port and the new chipset are nearly universally praised, but Apples new tablet still falls short of perfection in some cases.
Meanwhile, the T2 chip with its secure enclave is the same thing Apple put in the iMac Pro a year ago, which itself, is just an upgraded version of the T1 chip from 2016 and 2017 MBPs. The microphones have also been updated for better voice recognition alongside speakers with more full bass.
In terms of hardware, the iPad Pro is powered by Apple A12X Bionic, an octa-core CPU with 10 billion transistors, on in words, it is a faster version of Apple A12 Bionic CPU, which is the chip found on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, and iPhone XR. However, not everyone is a devote Apple-only user.
There are four storage options available: 64GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.
Guy Counseling spoke to Peter McDermott with Chicago based Chat Tech USA about Apple's new releases to get his impressions.
"When people are looking at using this as their main computing device, that's where you might seem the move toward the 12.9-inch" iPad Pro, she said. The device also comes in a cellular variant, which uses an e-SIM to latch onto the cellular networks.
Apple has updated its MacBook Air Laptop basic. The hub comes with 1GB Ethernet support alongside HDMI, 3 USB-A ports, an SD card slot, a microSD card slot and another USB-C.
Finally - but not least importantly - the HyperDrive for iPad Pro has its own USB-C port so the tablet can charge with all the other accessories connected.
We do expect stores will have stock on hand on November 7th for walk in customers, or to be reserved with the app that morning. It came with an introductory price of $1,299. It means they will have the same IP68 rating as the iPhone XS and XS Max, though the iPhone XR successor could get a bump from IP67 to IP68.
