Back in 2015, Apple already had released a 12.9 inch iPad Pro (at a starting price of $799). Then a year later, the tech giant then launched a 9.7 inch iPad Pro (at a starting price of $599). This year, the company is offering yet another variant of its iPad Pro -- this time around at a size of 10.5 inches.
The new 10.5 inch iPad Pro delivers a more improved display screen, while coming with an ability to fit a full size keyboard. Weighing at around a pound, it offers a running time of about 10 hours. In terms of hardware specifications, the newest iPad Pro offering from Apple packs a much powerful processor, the A10 X. According to the iPhone maker, this chip is capable of boosting the new iPad Pro’s performance to 30 percent faster than earlier iPad models. Visuals wise, the tablet performs about 40 percent better than its predecessors. Apple also took the opportunity to develop a new technology specifically for the 10.5 inch iPad Pro. Called ProMotion, this form of tech promises to allow smoother animations, and even a more seamless scrolling experience.
The 10.5 inch iPad Pro will come with a price of $649 for the 64 gigabyte edition. Further expanding its existing iPad tablet options, Apple is also offering updates to the bigger 12.9 inch iPad Pro, this time around, offering a 64 gigabyte edition at a starting price of $799.

Despite the fact that a company as big as Apple is continuing to launch new iPad models, tablet sales across the globe keep on suffering. Even somebody as might as Apple is not immune from the worldwide slump. Just last month, Apple reported that it had sold 8.9 million units of its iPad devices during its fiscal second quarter, which represents a decline compared to the 10.3 million units it had sold during the same quarter a year ago. Moreover, the fiscal second quarter marked the 13th consecutive decline in the tech giant’s tablet unit sales.
How fast things change -- not too long ago, Apple once considered its iPad lineup of tablets as its best selling product line. Several industry watchers have stated that one factor contributing to slowed iPad sales is that consumers now appear to be deciding to hold on to their current tablets instead of upgrading to a new one. Other users are even choosing to bypass tablets altogether, opting instead to either purchase a phablet size iPhone, or a Mac computer.
