One of these computers is faster than the other. Which it is will surprise you

John Ternus, Apple's VP of hardware engineering, came onstage during the iPad Pro 2018 unveiling event and claimed that they "are faster than 92% of all the portable PCs sold in the last 12 months, including the most popular Core i7 models from the top manufacturers".

One notable feature is the transition from Apple's lightning port to USB-C, which suggests Apple's desire for the iPad Pro to bridge the gap between tablets and laptops. While it's attached to the iPad, it charges.

Guy Counseling spoke to Peter McDermott with Chicago based Chat Tech USA about Apple's new releases to get his impressions. The larger model still has a 12.9-inch screen, but it's thinner and weighs less.

The Mac Mini has a space-aged grey finish and 100% recycled aluminum, making the Mac Mini eco-friendlier than its predecessor.

Prices for the iPad Pros increased to $799 and $999 for 11- and 12.9-inch models, though Apple plans to keep an older 10.5-inch version on sale for $649. As a result, the edges of the screen have become even narrower. "These size changes are thanks to the huge reduction in the bezel around the outside of the display, which makes a massive difference to the feel of the device".

Apple has obviously been positioning the iPad Pro (or the iPad lineup in general) as the go-to consumer choice for their computing needs, but, speaking from experience, that's a lofty goal that might still just be out of reach for most people who want to use the iPad Pro as their primary device. The same logic applies to the latest iPad Pro. Apple's new MacBook Air sports a Retina Display that is powered by Intel's 8 generation processor.

If color is the only factor that matters to you and gold or rose gold are the only colors you'll accept, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is still on the market and still one of the best iPad devices around (except for the 2018 iPad Pro, of course). The third lens could improve photography by enabling 3x optical zoom and better low-light performance. But one of the most surprising things about the recent announcements seems to be the radical shift in how Apple is starting to treat its iPad Pro 2018.

It's pretty much a laptop in terms of performance.

As with previous models, the new machines rely on processors from Intel Corp (INTC.O), but Apple said an increasing number of security features on the devices are being handled by its own so-called T2 chip. A new Photoshop app has built-in support for the Apple Pencil.

If there's a new Apple Pencil, then a new Smart Keyboard can't be far behind. A new butterfly keyboard. "It means the 2019 iPhone 11 will launch without the 'Time of Flight" camera feature.
