Major hardware announcements are definitely not the norm for Apple's WWDC dev summits, but this year's keynote marked the arrival of two new big updates for the iPad line.
Apple announced the all-new iPad Pro 12.9-inch is an upgrade to the original iPad Pro from way back in 2015, while the smaller, 10.5-inch model succeeds last year’s 9.7-inch slate.
The highlights of the two new iPads are their ultra-responsive, HDR-compliant, super-smooth 120Hz displays... which still don't support 3D Touch. Oh well. Aside from that, the new slates are powered by the Apple A10X Fusion chip that's guaranteed to bring great performance to the mix. There are a lot of other new hardware changes, but the best way to visualize these will be to compare how the new slates stack up against some of Apple's previous ones.
