Here is Apple's first official video for the new Apple iPad Pro models

With the release of a 10.5-inch Apple iPad Pro, and an updated 12.9-inch version, Apple is trying to re-energize a product that has seen better days. To be fair, the whole tablet market is floundering. Blame that on larger size phablet screens and the tendency of tablet owners not to update to a new model every two years. But Apple has added some new features to its new top-of-the-line slates, including the ability to drag and drop between apps, and split the screen so that multi-taskers can run more than one app at a time. A customizable dock remembers users' favorite apps, making it a snap to open them.

Many of these capabilities are found in the first official video released for the new iPad Pro tablets. And there are some things that you won't be able to see, such as the A10X chipset (featuring a hexa-core CPU) providing a 30% improvement in CPU performance, and 40% improvement in graphics performance. And now, the minimum storage available on the iPad Pro has been hiked to 64GB.

As usual, Apple has a way of producing these videos so that they touch your mind, heart and purse strings. By the end of the clip, you might find yourself calling your credit card company to check your balance. If you dare, the video can be found at the top of the story where a simple click starts the action.

Pixel 2 with 120Hz + RGB submatrix would be amazing for Daydream I'm glad Apple's pushing 120Hz, we've been stuck on 60Hz for far too long Been waiting for Android phones with 120Hz since MediaTek demoed it years ago, but I don't believe they came since OEMs only used MediaTek SoCs in low-mid phones

Good shout Vince. Didn't think about how a quicker screen could improve VR. Just going to need some serious power to chuck out the necessary FPS.

True, my hope is they use support Adaptive-Sync too And use: 90Hz for VR (along with advance rendering techniques such as checkerboard rendering and 45 fps -> 90 fps reprojection) 24/30Hz for 24/30 fps videos 120Hz for scrolling

Adaptive sync should make the VR experience much better. I have gsync on my desktop monitor and its brilliant. Would be great to see the technology filter down to mobiles.

Nothing new? Did you just look at the pictures and made a conclusion? Go troll somewhere else.

Same old design? Were you expecting a circular iPad?

I have the first 12.9 Pro, but this isn't a big enough leap for me to upgrade, especially since all I use it for is a TV at work, sadly IOS is my much use for anything else... hopefully it'll change with 11.

Did you infer that iOS 10 can only be used for TV? How strange.
