IPad Pro 10.5 review: Where execution and ambition meet

IPad Pro 10.5 review: Where execution and ambition meet

Apple wants to eliminate that pain point in iOS 11 by expanding its password managing feature beyond its Safari browser. This means you can now play music on certain speakers in home right within Apple Music.

Other updates arriving with iOS 11 include new Loop and Bounce effects for photos, Apple Pay payments via Messages and Siri, and a "do not disturb" feature that can be enabled while driving.

Those looking for a more enthusiastic iPad Pro review will of course find it on MacStories, where respected reviewer Federico Viticci discusses why the new 2017 model is better in just about every conceivable way. Apple also has a refreshed 12.9-inch iPad Pro. You know, the high-end stuff artists, designers and doctors use? Still, it's a change worth noting because it improves your experience looking at the screen, particularly if you're doing a lot of online reading on the tablet.

A new app with iOS 11, Apple Files essentially pulls in all your files into one place and even works with third party apps like Dropbox or Google Drive. First of all: the screen. It doesn't appear there will be a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro any time soon, since Apple is now using that form factor for its most affordable iPad, which doesn't support Apple Pencil input.

If Apple's gonna have an onscreen homebutton on the iPhone 8, it would make a lot of sense to spring-load it for drag & drop. It's also pricey for a tablet, according to the site. Our usual set of benchmarks (below) certainly point to some big performance gains, but here's the most important thing: Hardly anything I threw at the Pro over a week of testing managed to trip it up. The iPad Pro starts at $649 for a 64GB model, and it can be priced all the way up to $1079.00 for 512GB of storage and LTE.

While Apple typically launches new iPhones shortly after its iOS updates, this year's phones are expected to be delayed past the usual release date in September.

The new keyboard shifts keys to one side of the screen to make one-handed typing much easier.

Apple has finally announced support for AR based apps and has opened iOS 11 to developers to create fantastic, new AR content.
