Apple first introduced the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in 2015 followed by the 9.7-inch model in March of 2016. Second generation models were introduced in both 12.9-inch and 10.5-inch form factors in 2017. Apple’s third-generation iPad Pro, which launched in November of 2018, comes in both 12.9-inch and a 11-inch sizes, features an all-screen display with minimal bezels, and no Home button. The new iPads incorporate the TrueDepth camera from the iPhone line, allowing for Face ID biometric authentication.
The iPad Pro is marketed as a device that is more powerful than most PCs, and the latest benchmarks of the A12X inside the 2018 models back that claim up.
