Today, Apple unveiled its new Apple iPad Pro lineup, which includes 11" and 12.9" models. Both feature an edge-to-edge "Liquid Retina" LCD display. The Home Button has been removed, while Face ID support has been added. Apple's propietary Lightning connector has been replaced with the industry standard USB-C. They're powered by the A12X Bionic chip with an 8-core CPU and 7-core GPU.
The base 11" model comes with 64GB of flash storage and costs $799, while the base 12.9" 64GB model goes for $999. 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB versions, as well as 4G-equipped models, are available at an additional cost. (The top-of-the-line iPad Pro 12.9" 1TB WiFi + Cellular model costs $1,899.) These new iPad Pro models can be ordered today and begin shipping next week.
