Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, described the recent “Let Loose” event as “the biggest day for iPad since its introduction.”

The tech giant introduced significant updates to the iPad Air and iPad Pro, along with the launch of a new Apple Pencil Pro and an updated Magic Keyboard, tailored specifically for these new iPads.

The latest iPad Air now comes in two sizes, an 11-inch model and a larger 13-inch version, both powered by the advanced M2 chip.

Other enhancements include the addition of spatial audio for immersive sound and the relocation of the front-facing camera to the landscape edge, facilitating better video calls.

Alongside the classic space grey and starry finishes, Apple has introduced new blue and purple color options, offering a wider variety of choices.

iPad Pro: A leap in display technology and performance

Apple’s updated iPad Pro features a revolutionary display technology called Tandem OLED, available in both the 11-inch and 13-inch models.

The iPad Pro now boasts the powerful M4 chip, providing a substantial performance boost.

Apple claims that this new chip makes the iPad Pro “four times faster” than its predecessor, a surprising leap given that these advanced chips were expected to debut in the Mac series.

The iPad Pro will be available in space black and silver finishes.

Apple Pencil Pro: Precision and new features

The new Apple Pencil Pro is designed to offer greater precision and control, thanks to its built-in gyroscope that allows users to fine-tune their tools.

A unique squeeze feature enables users to quickly switch between tools, adding a new layer of functionality.

Additionally, the Pencil Pro now integrates with Apple’s FindMy feature, providing a simple way to locate the Pencil if it is misplaced.

As with the previous model, the Pencil Pro is magnetically charged and can be attached to the iPad for easy transport.

Magic Keyboard: Lighter and thinner for enhanced portability

Apple has redesigned the Magic Keyboard to be lighter and thinner to complement the new iPad Pro’s sleek profile.

It features an aluminium trackpad, a row of function keys, and comes in two color options to match the iPad Pro.

The Magic Keyboard will be available in two sizes: the 11-inch model priced at $299 and the 13-inch model at $349.
