Apple has added to its already bulging portfolio with a new iPad Pro for 2018. Yes, it’s that time of year again – again

Not satisfied with testing our temptation via a handful of new iPhones in 2018, the tech giant has revamped its iPad Pro, making the gadget bigger and better than ever. At this point, there are so many iterations that it’s easy to get confused. But here’s what we have sussed about the newcomer’s cut above the rest.

There’s no longer a chunky home button taking up precious screen real-estate. And with slimmer bezels, it means even more room for dazzling images on the liquid retina display. The edges are rounded off and Apple has finally given its iPad USB-C, bringing us one step closer to the singularity of cables.

It also has the hardware grunt of a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, which means gaming on the device will be great.

The downside? The beautiful device comes at a hefty cost. And with new Apple Pencil, which is a significant upgrade on its predecessor, and smart keyboard sold separately your new purchase won’t be cheap.

But dirhams aside, Apple has stepped up its game with this new line-up that includes a fresh Macbook Air and MacBook Mini, too, that galvanises its position as the top tech brand around.

Apple iPad Pro starts at AED3,199 (11-inch display). Available Nov 6.
