DAILYMAIL.COM RELATED TO THE NEW IPAD PRO FROM APPLE
Apple's new iPad Pro is a deceptively brilliant design piece.
From the moment you pick it up, forget that you have an iPad in your hand and immerse yourself in whatever you are doing.
All screen displays are bright, colorful and full, covering almost the entire front of the screen for the first time.
If you do not have a home button, it will take some time to get used to it, but for those coming from the latest iPhone, this is already taken for granted.
Dailymail.com was able to try out the new iPad Pro during an Apple launch event in Brooklyn
An interesting point about the new screen and the "Edge to Edge" design is that the size is manageable with a 12.9-inch screen. I have to struggle with the older version because it was a little too big.
The new version, however, feels smaller and feels almost like the "old" 10.5-inch design.
Apple's general thinning out of the design means that the new iPad feels very different and much more like the glass that Apple expects from him than in previous incarnations.
The redesigned pen is now much more useful as you can magnetically store and charge it on the side of the iPad.
The processing speed of the new pros is astonishing – demos show image processing and games at amazingly high speeds, and Apple says it's now faster than most desktop and laptop PCs on the market.
Overall, the new iPads really blur the line between devices – and for the majority of users, there's really no reason to buy a traditional notebook over the iPad, especially as Apple has even improved the back of the device.
