Apple is finally giving the iPad Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini a refresh.
After years of seemingly minor performance boosts, Apple took the wraps off redesigned models of both popular computers, introducing a new iPhone X-inspired iPad Pro that drops the home button and redesigned MacBook Air successor that looks more like the company’s other 2018 laptops than the old Air which the company hadn’t redesigned in several years.
The new iPad Pro, as previously reported, does, indeed, feature an edge-to-edge display. The company has dropped the home button and fingerprint sensor in favor of thinner bezels around the edges and facial recognition, similar to what it has done on last year’s iPhone X and this year’s iPhone XS, XS Max and XR.
Thanks to the thinner bezels screen size have been increased from 10.5 inches on the smaller iPad Pro to 11 inches, while the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro will see its screen real estate remain 12.9 inches, but shrink the actual device to roughly the size of a sheet of paper.
