The new iPad Pro is out, with its LiDAR scanner and a Magic Keyboard with trackpad


Coronavirus or not, Apple lifts the veil today on its new iPad Pro, as well as on the Magic Keyboard with a trackpad. The tablet, the previous generation of which dates back to the end of 2018, has an A12Z Bionic chip (this Z is a first for an Apple chip), which makes the device “ faster and more powerful than many Windows notebooks ” The graphics processor displays 8 cores and there is a Neural Engine chip for processing machine learning jobs.

The iPad Pro 2020 mainly includes a brand new camera unit including a 12-megapixel wide angle, an ultra-wide 10-megapixel camera, and as rumored, a LiDAR scanner to measure distances by calculating how long light takes to reach a given object and to return to its source.

Which opens up a lot of possibilities for augmented reality experiences. It will be necessary to see what it gives when the developers will be able to draw the substantial marrow, on the other hand the contribution of the ultra wide-angle should give nice results very quickly, as is the case with the iPhone 11.

The iPad Pro retains its USB-C port, its four speakers and support for 4G LTE Advanced (no 5G), the novelty is the presence of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) instead of Wi -Fi 5 (802.11ac) and the four “studio quality” microphones (the same as on the 16-inch MacBook Pro?). Two colors are available, space gray and silver. The range keeps the four versions up to 1 TB of storage; the entry level takes 128 GB, double the previous generation.

The iPad Pro will be available on March 25 from € 899 for the 11-inch version and € 1,119 for the 12.9-inch version. The Magic Keyboard will be marketed “later”, including in French and in more than 30 languages. The price of the device will be € 349 for the 11-inch version, and € 399 for 12.9 inches. Cozy sums for simple keyboards!
