Keyboard and Trackpad, Delivering the Best Typing Experience Ever on iPad
Apple today announced its most advanced iPad Pro with the A12Z Bionic chip, iPad The new iPad Pro adds an Ultra-Wide camera, studio-quality mics and a breakthrough LiDAR Scanner that delivers cutting-edge depth-sensing capabilities, opening up more pro workflows and supporting pro photo and video apps. The LiDAR Scanner, along with pro cameras, motion sensors, pro performance, pro audio, the stunning Liquid Retina display and powerful apps, extends the lead of iPad Pro as the world’s best device for augmented reality (AR).
iPadOS 13.4, Apple brings trackpad support to iPad, giving customers an all-new
way to interact with their iPad. Rather than copying the experience from macOS,
trackpad support has been completely reimagined for iPad. As users move their
finger across the trackpad, the pointer elegantly transforms to highlight user
interface elements. Multi-Touch gestures on the trackpad make it fast and easy
to navigate the entire system without users ever lifting their hand.
Apple today also introduced the new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro.
With a floating design with smooth angle adjustment, a backlit keyboard and
trackpad, the Magic Keyboard delivers the best typing experience ever on iPad.
The Magic Keyboard will be available for purchase in May.
Pro Performance with A12Z Bionic Chip
Built for the most demanding tasks, like editing 4K video or
designing 3D models, iPad Pro gets another performance boost with the new A12Z
Bionic chip. The eight-core GPU in the A12Z Bionic, along with an enhanced
thermal architecture and tuned performance controllers, gives iPad Pro the
highest performance ever in an iPad. Combined with the eight-core CPU and the
powerful Neural Engine, which enables next-generation apps, there’s no other
chip that can offer the incredible performance found in the thin and light
design of iPad Pro. With great battery life lasting up to 10 hours, faster
Wi-Fi connectivity and gigabit-class LTE that’s 60 percent
faster with support for more LTE bands than any other tablet, customers
can stay productive and creative all day.
The edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display — in both 11-inch and
12.9-inch sizes — is the world’s most advanced mobile display. Featuring P3
wide color support, it lets customers see photos, videos, apps and games in
vivid, true-to-life detail. ProMotion technology automatically adjusts the
display refresh rate up to 120 Hz for ultra-smooth scrolling and
responsiveness. And no matter where customers take iPad Pro or how they
interact with it, True Tone, high brightness and an anti-reflective coating
deliver the best viewing experience possible on any mobile device.
The Pro camera system on iPad Pro features a 12MP Wide camera
for capturing stunning photos and 4K video, and now includes a 10MP Ultra Wide
camera that zooms out two times to capture a much wider field of view. Adding a
second camera doubles the photo and video possibilities, enabling different
perspectives and multi-camera use — a game changer for creative pros.
Pro Audio with Studio-Quality Mics
iPad Pro now features five studio-quality microphones for
capturing super clean audio and the quietest details, and delivers an immersive
sound experience with four-speaker audio that automatically adjusts to any
orientation, no matter how it is held. The combination of pro cameras, pro
audio and the large display make iPad Pro a versatile mobile studio for
creative pros including filmmakers, video professionals, podcasters and other
Breakthrough LiDAR Scanner
The breakthrough LiDAR Scanner enables capabilities never before
possible on any mobile device. The LiDAR Scanner measures the distance to
surrounding objects up to 5 meters away, works both indoors and outdoors, and
operates at the photon level at nano-second speeds. New depth frameworks in
iPadOS combine depth points measured by the LiDAR Scanner, data from both
cameras and motion sensors, and is enhanced by computer vision algorithms on
the A12Z Bionic for a more detailed understanding of a scene. The tight
integration of these elements enables a whole new class of AR experiences on
Every existing ARKit app automatically gets instant AR
placement, improved motion capture and people occlusion. Using the latest
update to ARKit with a new Scene Geometry API, developers can harness the power
of the new LiDAR Scanner to unleash scenarios never before possible.
The LiDAR Scanner improves the Measure app, making it faster and
easier to automatically calculate someone’s height, while helpful vertical and
edge guides automatically appear to let users more quickly and accurately
measure objects. The Measure app also now comes with Ruler View for more
granular measurements and allows users to save a list of all measurements,
complete with screenshots for future use.
iPadOS 13.4 brings trackpad support to iPad for the first time
for a more natural typing experience and added precision for tasks such as
writing and selecting text, working with spreadsheets and pro workflows.
Designed specifically for the touch-first experience on iPad, the cursor
appears as a circle that highlights user interface elements, text fields and
apps on the Home screen and Dock, giving a clear indication of what users can
click on. Fluid gestures on the trackpad make it easy to switch between apps,
access the app switcher and activate the Dock, Control Center and apps in Slide
Trackpad support in iPadOS is designed to work great with the
apps customers use every day. From smoothly scrolling through web pages in
Safari and photo libraries in Photos, to precisely editing text in Notes and
quickly viewing and organizing your email in Mail, it’s a joy to use a trackpad
with iPad. Most third-party apps work with no change at all, and developers can
go even further with new APIs that let them deliver unique experiences in their
Updates coming to Apple’s iWork suite of productivity apps —
Pages, Numbers and Keynote — take full advantage of the trackpad and open up a
whole new way to work with documents on iPad. Writing and editing text is a
breeze in Pages, working with multiple objects in Keynote is easier than ever,
and added levels of precision make working with even the largest spreadsheets a
snap. Additional new features include gorgeous new templates in Pages and
Keynote, giving users a head start on creating beautiful documents and, for the
first time in iWork, users can add a drop cap to make a paragraph stand out
with a large, decorative first letter. Collaboration will also become easier
than ever with support for iCloud folder sharing and the ability to edit shared
documents while offline.
Pro Accessories with Magic Keyboard
Joining the second-generation Apple Pencil and an updated
Smart Keyboard Folio is the new Magic Keyboard. Attaching magnetically to
iPad Pro, the Magic Keyboard puts the beautiful Multi-Touch screen on display
with its floating design, working equally well on a lap or on a desk. Unique
cantilevered hinges allow smooth adjustments of the viewing angle up to 130
degrees. The portable and protective design of the Magic Keyboard delivers a
full-size keyboard with backlit keys and a scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm
travel, delivering the best typing experience ever on iPad.
The Magic Keyboard features USB-C pass-through charging, keeping
the USB-C port on iPad Pro free for accessories including external drives and
displays. The click-anywhere trackpad on the Magic Keyboard complements the
touch-first design of iPad for easy navigation and precise adjustments, adding
even more versatility and productivity to the iPad Pro experience.
