10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro Available in Apple Stores

First look at the new iOS 11 App Store Apple's iPad Pro is closer than ever to replacing your laptop

Other noteworthy improvements over last year's iPads is the addition of the camera from the iPhone 7. In the 10.5in variant, the resolution rises to 2,224 x 1,668 (standard iPad models are still stuck at 2,048 x 1,536) and Apple's new wide colour display claims to cover the entire DCI-P3 colour gamut - which means redder reds, greener greens and bluer blues. The 12.9-inch 64GB version in "space grey" is available with 5GB of data for £62 per month and a £40 upfront cost.

The 10.5-inch model is slightly bigger than the 9.7-inch model, but at 0.24-inches it is equally as thin.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro has its own Smart Keyboard ($248). The reduced size of the bezels is what makes the 10-inch model unique.

Before we look at the pros and cons of the new iPad Pro, context is important.

The real question with an iPad Pro is whether or not it can actually be used as a laptop replacement. In early March this year, the firm introduced a novel 9.7 - inch iPad, the 5 generation targeting specifically the casual users.

Don't expect a drastic change in industrial design.

ProMotion isn't just about screen refresh rate. With a bigger screen, it can conveniently make room for a full-size onscreen keyboard; yet, its weight remains unchanged at 477g. Even editing multiple 4K video files in iMovie was a surprisingly painless process, partially because the updated 12-megapixel camera can shoot native 4K footage. In general, Apple's estimates were always on the conservative side; we've had our share of iDevices easily surpass the 10-hour mark in our battery-rundown test. This Pro ships with iOS 10.3, which isn't technically bad, it's just that iOS 10 didn't add many truly valuable iPad-specific features.

Ex-basketball star Rodman expected to arrive in North Korea on Tuesday
In a previous trip, Rodman spent a significant amount of time with Kim and his wife, even holding their baby daughter. Rodman has said he is trying to "accomplish" something both he and President Trump need through this visit.

Didn't even really talk to him: Putin on Flynn
Putin was asked about reports of long-standing corruption and repression of dissent in Russian Federation . Russian President Vladimir Putin dismisses the allegation that Russians meddled in the USA election.

With that in mind, don't be surprised to see some things on iOS 11 that will seem familiar.

As a Mac user for more than two decades with a lot of workflows and habits grown up over that time, it's strangely comforting to me to think that Apple isn't going to change the Mac and make it into something different.

Apple released iOS 11 into the wild more than a week ago, and you can try the first beta on compatible iPhones and iPads right now.

Thinking about buying one of Apple's just-updated iMacs?

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

On the outside, we still have basically the same iPad, though this time - depending from where you're viewing it from - it's either upsized from the garden-variety 9.7-inch iPad or a toned-down original 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

But with the new tablet that Apple announced last week, the company is closer than ever, especially once iOS 11 arrives.
