The headlining feature of the new models is the revised rear-camera array. Along with a wide lens, the tablet also features an ultra-wide lens that shows more than twice of a scene.

It now also offers five studio-quality microphones for capturing improved audio.

Users can also take advantage of a new LiDAR scanner, the first on an Apple mobile device. It works by measuring the distance to surrounding objects up to 5 meters away both indoors and outdoors. That will help provide a better and new experience when using AR apps.

Each tablet is powered by the new A12Z Bionic chip.

Along with the new tablet, Apple also unveiled a Magic Keyboard with a built-in trackpad that can be used with iPadOS 13.4 which will arrive next week.

The new software will offer full trackpad support for all iPad models. Most apps will work with the functionality. On the iPad screen, the cursor will be shown as a small dot.

You can order the new iPad Pro models today from Apple’s site. The tablets will be in stores starting next week. An 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $799 for the Wi-Fi only models and $949 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model. The 12.9-inch model starts at $999 for the Wi-Fi only model and $1,149 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.

Both models are available in silver or space gray.

Arriving in May, the Magic Keyboard will be $299 for the 11-inch iPad Pro and $349 for the 12.9-inch model.
