WWDC 2017: Apple Announces New 10.5″ iPad Pro

Apple has announced a 10.5" iPad Pro. The bigger size will feature a larger on-screen and smart keyboard. HDR video, ultralow reflectivity, 600 nits brightness, a wide color gamut, and True Tone display have been added to this new iPad. This iPad Pro will feature Pro Motion, a 120 Hz refresh rate.

New smart covers in polyurethane, and leather, along with a sleeve with pencil slot, were announced. Storage has been doubled in the 10.5" and 12.9" models, both coming with 64 GB by default.
