The new iPad Pro both fixes the segmentation of the Pro line and pushes the whole iPad experience forward. Even though it won't ship with iOS 11 when it launches next week, the new iPad Pro's hardware features alone are enough to make me consider upgrading my 9.7-inch tablet after just a year.
The bigger display on the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch tablets is, of course, appealing, as is the Wide Color (P3) gamut and True Tone being adopted across both models. The displays are also brighter and more anti-reflective, both of which were immediately evident when viewing the tablets under the glare of the hands-on spotlights.
But the biggest deal here is ProMotion — a feature that sounds a bit like a sports drink and can't easily be described to the average user. Apple doesn't even mention it on its iPad Pro website overview, choosing instead to focus on the marketable part of the feature: the tablet's better screen refresh rate.
