Apple confirms new "Pencil" Stylus won't work with Qi charging standard

There will certainly be other USB-C hubs designed for the 2018 iPad Pro. Not yet, at least.

Tech pundits will recognise this isn't the first time a stylus has worked this way (Microsoft's Surface got there first) but it solves so many problems around charging and losing accessories that it's an innovation worth "borrowing".

Let's start with the good. There is now a single engine powering AutoCAD across desktop, web, and mobile platforms, allowing the highest possible fidelity for members of the AEC industry to move DWG files from one device to the next. Apple claims the new iPad Pro is faster than 92 percent of all laptops sold in the past year, including some with an Intel Core i7 CPU, and compared its game graphics prowess to an Xbox One S. No apps or games I've used have been able to make the Pro break a sweat at all and benchmark numbers have been impressive. Most people I showed our space gray review unit to thought it looked cool, but I think it's kind of brutal looking - nearly like a reference design. This includes thumbdrives. There's also a pair of SD and microSD card readers.

Which leads us to prices. Presales of both the 11- and 12.9-inch display version start today and they will be available November 7 with prices starting at $799 and $999 respectively.

With 20 points from 10 games, they might even expect to be in the Champions League places at this point in the season. We assume we'll score two or three goals every game but we can't always do that.

"Those squared off edges and smaller bezels change the screen-to-body ratio in positive ways: the 11-inch model fits a larger screen in the same size body as the old 10.5-inch model, and the 12.9-inch model shrinks the body down to fit the screen, making it much less clumsy to use than the outgoing model". 64GB for S $1,499, 256 GB for S $1,719, followed by 512GB for $2,019, and 1TB for S$ 2,619. They call it their HyperDrive for iPad Pro.

Apple's latest iOS tablet doesn't support every feature of USB-C, but external monitors made the cut. It has eight cores: four for super demanding work, like playing Fortnite, and four more for easier tasks, like perusing your email. "Also, the 10.8" screen uses OGS full-lamination that reduces two pieces of glass of a common display structure down to one.

On its website, Apple says USB-C "gives you a high-performance connection to accessories like an external display or camera". But if you want the best tablet on the market, look no further than the iPad Pro. It feels like the team listened carefully to feedback from creative pros and took action-not just in improving the hardware and iOS, but also in working closely with key partners like Adobe to create uniquely unbelievable possibilities for the creative community.
