Apple releases video listing five reasons why the iPad Pro can be your next computer

Apple's new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models offer LCD displays with thin bezels and are powered by the powerful A12X chipset. The tablets can run the desktop version of Photoshop and support the use of Face ID in any orientation. Apple released a video today, giving five reasons why the iPad Pro should be your next computer. The number one reason, according to Apple, is that with the aforementioned A12X powering the new iPad Pro, the device is more powerful than most computers.

The next reason has to do with the versatility of the iPad Pro. Thanks to the App Store, the tablet is everything from a cinema where you can stream movies, to a book, an editing suite to work on your films, a music studio to add the right amount of gloss to your music, and more.

The number three reason to make the new iPad Pro your next computer is how light it travels. The device weighs in at about one pound and offers up to ten hours of battery life, keeping you connected on the go via Wi-Fi and LTE. Number four, with the touchscreen, navigating through applications is a snap. Drag and drop to move objects between apps, and multitasking is quick and easy. The fifth and last reason has to do with the Apple Pencil. The accessory allows you to make precise drawings and sketches and allows you to sign documents.

The Smart Keyboard Folio adds a physical QWERTY keyboard, and a way to prop up your iPad Pro so that it is positioned in front of you, sitting on any desk just like a personal computer. The tag line of the video says it all, "Like a computer unlike any computer." That is the new Apple iPad Pro. Tap on the video at the top of this article and see if you agree.
