Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) unboxing and first look

Apple is back at it again with the second generation of its high-end iPad Pro line. Introduced just last week at Apple's WWDC keynote, the two new tablets offer considerably improved specs, including a new screen with a higher refresh rate and better Apple Pencil support, as well as brand new A10X Fusion SoC offering improved performance over previous models.

But while the new, 10.5-inch model mostly stole the show, the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro got a refresh as well, offering all of the same improvements inside a larger form factor, which could prove to be convenient regardless of whether you're an artist, or simply a big screen enthusiast. So if you're interested in buying the device, you may also want to know what you'll find out inside that classic white box:

  • The iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) itself
  • A Lightning to USB cable
  • A USB power adapter
  • The user manual
Make sure to check out the full video to watch us pull off all the protective coating (unf), as well as to hear our first hands-on impressions of the new device. And as for our full review, expect to to see it coming up pretty soon as well.
