An expensive tablet is replacing a PC gain improved cameras and full mouse and lidar support, but it is the best software
The iPad Pro 2020 takes a nice redesign for 2018 and extends the camera backward with LIDAR (light and radar) technology, commonly used in self-driving cars, not tablet computers.
Apple rejoined the iPad Pro in 2018 with a stunning design, including Touch ID home buttons and large, beautiful displays with narrow edges and Face ID instead of straight sides.
The new iPad Pro, priced at £ 769, is basically identical and absolutely stunning, which, two years after its original release, was reviewed, with its larger 12.9in variants starting at £ 969 and the Smart Keyboard Folio Which costs £ 199.
The tablet has four premium speakers on the sides, a USB-C port, a magnetic wireless charger for the Apple Pencil, and a small smart connector for keyboard cases. However, there is no headphone jack.
The camera block extends backward, similar to those used on the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, which feature a dual-camera system and a Lidar scanner – more than those in an instant.

The Apple A12Z Bionic Processor is the same A12X Bionic processor used in the 2018 iPad Pro, but an eight-core graphics processor instead of seven. It does just that: fast and smooth.
Apple says that the iPad Pro is more powerful than many complete computers; With the Intel Core i3 chip, the Affinity Photo was certainly faster to create the same complex turns on the iPad Pro than the new MacBook Air.
The battery life was not very good like the previous model when we tested it in 2018. The new iPad Pro works over eight hours between charges; Enough for everyday work and watching videos on the go but not the 1.5 workday battery that the 2018 model manages to manage.
Part of that discrepancy can be explained by an upgrade to iOS 12-capable iPadOS 13.4, which is more, often at the same time, so it will be more energy-hungry – but also more rewarding. With light usage, such as reading or watching movies offline, the iPad Pro lasts over nine hours between charges.
Charging the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with an 18W foldable charger took three hours and 20 minutes of charging. Using a 45W charger for over an hour since that time.
