Can the LG UltraFine bring 5K glory to the iPad Pro?

Can the LG UltraFine bring 5K glory to the iPad Pro?

14 days ago   |   By iMore

Best answer: If you were hoping to use your brand new iPad Pro with an LG UltraFine 5K display, you're going to be out of luck. You'll be better off with an LG 27UD88, which isn't 5K, but will connect to your iPad Pro.
Amazon: LG 27UD88 monitor
Amazon: LG UltraFine 5K
The LG UltraFine 5K won't work with the iPad Pro because USB-C isn't Thunderbolt 3
The LG UltraFine 5K connects over Thunderbolt 3, which uses the same port at USB-C. But not every USB-C port is also a Thunderbolt 3 port. Such is the case with the 2018 iPad Pro. USB-C is present, but Thunderbolt 3 isn't. And because the...

Apple's Phil Schiller and Anand Shimpi Provide Insight Into A12X Chip in New iPad Pro Models

Apple's Phil Schiller and Anand Shimpi Provide Insight Into A12X Chip in New iPad Pro Models

14 days ago   |   By Mac Rumors

Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller and Apple chip expert Anand Shimpi, who created AnandTech , recently sat down for an interview with Ars Technica to provide a walkthrough of the A12X chip in the iPad Pro and some insight into Apple's chip development techniques.
The A12X is an 8-core chip with four performance and four efficiency cores, all of which can be active at once. The iPad Pro is the first iPad able to use so many cores simultaneously, and you're going to see major gains over the A10X when running heavily-threaded workflows, according to Shimpi.
"You typically only see this kind...

Does the new iPad Pro (2018) work with your old Smart Keyboard?

Does the new iPad Pro (2018) work with your old Smart Keyboard?

14 days ago   |   By iMore

Best answer: No, you're old Smart Keyboard won't work with the new 2018 iPad Pros. Not only is the design different, but the smart connectors are in a different location. If you still want a Smart Keyboard for your new iPad Pro, you'll need to pick up a new one.
Apple: Smart Keyboard Folio
Different form factor
Anyway you slice it, the new iPad Pro models just won't work with any of the old accessories. The new design has made the measurements of the iPad Pro different than their older conter parts. The casing size of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is significantly smaller than it's predecessor...

2018 iPad Pro review: “What's a computer?”

2018 iPad Pro review: “What's a computer?”

14 days ago   |   By Ars Technica

Samuel Axon
Early this year, Apple ran an ad that featured a young girl using an iPad as her primary computing device. An older woman asked the girl a question about her computer, and she responded, "What's a computer?"
The ad was widely mocked. For starters, an iPad is a computer. But also, the hypothetical future when kids don't even know what a desktop or laptop are seems very distant at best. Yes, tablets and smartphones have replaced laptops and desktops among large numbers of young people for personal uses like social media, Web browsing, and games. But despite some high school...

Enlarge / The 2018, 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
BROOKLYN-Apple's new iPad Pro sports several new features of note, including the most dramatic aesthetic redesign in years, Face ID, new Pencil features, and the very welcome move to USB-C. But the star of the show is the new A12X system on a chip .
Apple made some big claims about the A12X during its presentation announcing the product: that it has twice the graphics performance of the A10X; that it has 90 percent faster multi-core performance than its predecessor; that it matches the GPU power of the Xbox One S game console with no fan and at a...

The iPad Pro Doesn't Have to Be a Laptop Replacement

The iPad Pro Doesn't Have to Be a Laptop Replacement

14 days ago   |   By iPad Insight

I have been reading a few of the pre-release iPad Pro reviews, and I can't help but pick up on the recurring theme. That theme is...but. The constant refrain is the iPad Pro is great BUT it isn't a laptop replacement.
Here is one such comment from Nilay Patel of The Verge's review :
This little Lightroom vignette is basically the story of the iPad Pro: either you have to understand the limitations of iOS so well you can make use of these little hacks all over the place to get things done, or you just deal with it and accept that you have to go back to a real computer from time to time...

IPad Pro Diary: I'm already in love with the new compact 12.9-inch iPad Pro

IPad Pro Diary: I'm already in love with the new compact 12.9-inch iPad Pro

14 days ago   |   By 9to5Mac

I wrote earlier that I was hoping the 2018 12.9-inch iPad Pro was going to prove to be, as Apple claimed, ‘ the ultimate iPad .' All the joy of that huge screen in a form factor which didn't prove too great a compromise when it came to comfort and portability.
When the folio case arrived ahead of the iPad, I was encouraged : the size difference didn't seem to me to be too great. Since then, I've been waiting impatiently for my iPad to arrive - and today it has...
