Apple’s new iPad Pro Geekbench scores surface online

The Wrap – November 2, 2018 Sky Mobile confirms pricing for iPad Pro - Mobile News Online

Since the launch of iPad pro a few days ago, Apple users are going insane with joy because of the new cool and elegant wallpapers.

Intrepid journalist took one for the team and tested the theory out, and the outcome was just as wonderful as we could have ever hoped - yes, the iPad Pro does indeed have enough magnetic pull to attach itself to a fridge.

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.

Analysts point out that Apple is blurring the lines between smartphones and notebooks with the new iPad. And the multi-tasking changes in iOS 11 helped make the iPad all the more useful, but there's still a way to go. The iPads are noticeably thinner while both having a good distribution of weight meaning they don›t feel as heavy as they perhaps should at first glance. Apple, however, did not update the 12-inch MacBooks, so they're not getting any of Intel's 2018 processors. This development by Apple will empower iPad users to connect their iPad Pros to an external monitor, a DSLR and also even charge their smartphones with the help of reverse charging technology. Now, each iPad Pro uses a TrueDepth camera to unlock with Face ID, just like the iPhone XS, and are equipped with the new A12X Bionic Chip.

The MacBook Air is also in the spotlight, and once again, it's an Apple laptop that desperately needed a refresh.


While looking at Best Buy, B&H Photo and carriers we are able to find several versions of the 2018 iPad Pro in stock for release date delivery, with WiFi or with LTE. But here I put the blame on project managers; if you're introducing new software in 2018, and it doesn't work natively on mobile devices, then go back to tender and quit your job.

It's pretty much a laptop in terms of performance.

However, the fact that it's even close is a massive endorsement for the processor R&D department inside Apple, and a sad indictment of the state of the latest MacBook notebooks produced by the company. Halide co-founder Sebastiaan de With has tried to imagine what the new iPhone would look like if it borrows the design from iPad Pro. "There's also a new keyboard".

There is no bezel in iPad Pro and it has a clear view of edge to edge display which is quite breathtaking with the wonderful user experience. The Folio provides different viewing angles - one that's best for lap usage and the other for on a desk. "It is a lot more stable than the previous Smart Keyboard".
