    2017 iPad Pro was announced 1 year, 4 months, 5 days ago. What do you think will be new in the Late 2018 iPad Pro?

    I am hoping for all iPhone Xs parts and aesthetics within a tablet form factor. :)

    I noticed that the iMac, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air and Macbook were all announced on June 5 2017.

    Rumored features are listed here.

    From what I see, the workflow for photographers would be easier because of the usb-c connectivity.

    I'm digging the new design. It might be time to upgrade my almost 5-year old iPad Air 1.

    Hmm. At those prices, I was hoping the screen was OLED like the iphone xs max, no rose gold color, still BLACK keyboard folio. Kinda disappointing.

    I love the design of the new iPads! I don't mind them removing the headphone jack as I don't use it. :LOL:

    What I don't like is the price. I'd like me some iPad Pro 11-inch 256GB Wi-Fi but at Php61,490? Oof. :cry:

    At this point, Apple is known for its pricing absurdity, that I have grown accustomed to it but refused to impulsively indulge it at most times. Wish they would price its products more competitively.

    love the new iPad design but at that price i’m tempted to hold on to my iPad Pro 10.5 512gb rather than sell it and add for an iPad Pro 11” 256gb.

    I have my sights on the 11-inch wifi-cellular 256GB model. I hope they have it in stock next week when I go to Singapore. The price difference would help.
