After months of rumors and anticipation, Apple finally took the wraps off its new iPad Pro models at a special event in Brooklyn, New York. In addition to sporting some serious hardware upgrades like the A12X processor, there’s also an entirely new design for the 2018 iPad Pro. Gone are the chunky bezels and home button; they’ve been replaced with a gorgeous new display and Face ID to quickly unlock the device.
