Apple launched the original iPad amid much fanfare back in 2010 and it has done very well in its own right, but sales figures haven't been anywhere close to those of the iPhone. In recent years, Apple's hardware and software teams have put in a lot of work refining the focus of the iPad. From being a device designed largely for watching videos, reading, or playing games, the focus has slowly been shifting towards professional use. Sure, the company still sells the iPad mini 4 and the iPad (2017) for consuming content, but the bulk of Apple’s recent innovations have been reserved for the iPad Pro models.
The iPad Pro (10.5 inch) is a productivity oriented tablet that Apple released in 2017. As the name suggests, it has a 10.5-inch display with Apple's True Tone display technology. The tablet features a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and works with accessories such as Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard. The iPad Pro (10.5 inch) ships with four-way stereo speakers for better sound while watching videos. It has Apple's A10X SoC which is very powerful and battery efficient. The tablet has 4GB RAM that highlights its multitasking credentials.
