iMacs have been updated with more powerful internals and brighter, more colourful screens. A quick rundown on the specs of the base model of the 12-inch Retina MacBook Pro include an Intel Core 3 m3 (1.2 GHz) processor, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage.

"The new 10.5" iPad Pro brings some welcome improvement and excitement to the tablet space.

I do a lot of typing on the iPad's glass screen.

In a nutshell, what we have there is the same camera from the iPhone 7. Until then, here is a list of five new camera features on iOS 11. According to Apple, the iPad Pro has a 10.5-inch display, which is 20% larger than the previous model. From what we already know, the 10.5-inches version comes as a replacement for the 9.7-inches one.

The weight loss and smooth surfaces mean it is great to hold the 10.5-inch iPad Pro in your hands without fatigue setting in.

The difference between 9.7 inches and 10.5 inches doesn't sound like much on paper, but it goes a long way in practice.

As reported by Forbes, iFixit was able to determine that the new iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM which is divided into a couple of 2GB LPDDR4 chips from Micron. High Sierra. The Safari browser is more intelligent, with built-in tracker blocking, and the file manager gets an update to speed things along.

Don't expect a drastic change in industrial design.

Could/has the iPad Pro replace your laptop or desktop? The higher screen refresh rate should also help. The device sports an excellent retina display created to deliver a better visual performance, compared to the company's first 12.9-inch iPad Pro. As for the rumors being linked to the upcoming iPad Pro, everything should be taken with a grain of salt in mind.

So, a $30 stand that does next-to-nothing isn't exactly surprising coming from the Apple store, but it's serves as a reminder that many accessories made for Apple products are often pricey and/or unnecessary. If you're exporting 4K video or cranking up the screen brightness, you'll probably see the battery drain more quickly. It's quite a bit faster and more efficient than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (150 and 300.7), iPad (130 and 250), and mini 4 (80.5 and 187.5). While Apple revealed numerous devices' features at the event, and also on its website, the company did keep a secret - the RAM storage the devices will be equipped with. After almost 2 years, it seems that Apple has started to standardize on that layout, as seen inside the iPad Pro 10.5.

The £79 Apple Pencil also benefits from an increase in frame rate, as Wired says drawing and note-taking "feel more immediate".

It wasn't a good time to buy a new MacBook or MacBook Pro recently, for example.

Apple's iPad Pros have always been the best choice for tech enthusiasts who prefer high-powered tablets.
