New iPad Pro’s speed will be a nightmare for Qualcomm and Intel

The Wrap – November 2, 2018

Apple CEO Tim Cook took the stage at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in NY to present the keynote at the company's second-biggest event of 2018. It is the refresh to the premium range of tablet from the Cupertino tech giant. The company did manage to come up with some interesting updates on these devices. The keyboard proved stable and was “approved for lap use”, which is something to consider when looking at the new MacBook Air.

The bottom line is that if you're someone who uses the iPad for heavy lifting, this will not disappoint.

The iPad Pro's speed score is not too far behind a current-generation 15-inch MacBook Pro with an Intel Core i7 processor earns, as pointed out by MacRumors. It comes with up to 16GB of RAM which is higher than what the original variant offered. The headphone jack is replaced by Bluetooth headphones like AirPods, and the Lightning connector has been dropped for a USB-C port, the first time such a connector is being used on an iOS device. To really push the new iPad as an alternative to a laptop, Apple touted a single-core performance improvement of 35 percent over the previous generation with multicore workloads up to 90 percent faster.

The 2018 MacBook Air, which Apple is selling for $1,199, is better in nearly every way than the 12-inch MacBook, which is still priced at $1,299.

Ahead of the general availability of the redesigned and beefed up iPad Pro models (Tuesday, 6 Nov) some third party benchmark runs have been spotted on Geekbench. The company has also confirmed the prices at which the new MacBook Air, iPad Pro and Mac mini will retail in India. The 11-inch screen itself has been upgraded by Apple to a Liquid Retina display, something we first saw on the iPhone XR when it launched recently. It comes with a 12-megapixels primary camera that can record 4K videos and secondary front-facing camera which can capture portrait selfies.

This accessory will be available in silver and space grey to match the iPad.

Perhaps it's superficial but some potential iPad Pro buyers might be won over by changes to the Apple Pencil alone.

Before you plunk down $129 for Apple's new "Pencil" stylus, you should be aware that the device will not charge via the standard "Qi" wireless power technology, according to Apple. Following in the footsteps of the iPhone X, Apple made a decision to ditch the Home button on the iPad Pro, replacing it with Face ID.

Lukaku misses United training ahead of Juventus clash
Manchester United head to Turin to tackle Serie A giants Juventus in a crunch Champions League clash on Wednesday evening. No side has won more away Champions League matches at Juventus than Manchester United (2, same as Bayern Munich).

Apple said the Mac Mini, a small desktop customers provide their own display and accessories for, would add processing power and memory capacity and start at $799, also an increase.

All three of these devices are now available to preorder and will be available for users from November 7.

The drawback to this device, of course, has been more bulk and more weight; something this new addition addresses.
