Muuqaalkii u horeeyay ee laga soo galo ugu danbeeyay ee kala duwan oo kiniin Apple ee - Pro iPad (ka £ 679, apple.com) - Waa ay 5.6 megapixel, 32.8cm (12.9in) screen, taas oo ka sarraysa ee size iyo xallinta wax Apple ayaa hore u bixiyeen. Waxa ay u muuqataa cajiib ah. Dab ka soo ciyaar Pro-filaayo in sida Room Saddex The (£ 3,99, sidad, app Store) oo waxay geli doonaan nolosha Cadha. Sida sidoo kale qardhaasaha bilicsanaanta cad, la puzzler a tricksy sidan, faahfaahsan daray waa lacagta dhabta ah sida aad ku hubsaday, lihin iyo sanduuqyada xujo jiita si ay horumar. Wajahadda of taxanahan la ballaariyo in ay cidhibta labaad, iyadoo qolal badan oo qayb kasta oo ka mid ah noqoto xujo halkii diiradda kaliya on sanduuqyada naftooda. Waa horumar lagu qanco oo soo bandhigay fiican on this hardware cusub.
Si kastaba ha ahaatee, it’s the computational heft beneath the glossy exterior that is sure to most impress. More powerful than the vast majority of mobile computers, claims Apple, and capable of editing 4K video – four times more detailed than standard HD TV – meaning that iMovie (free with the device) comes into its own. The Pro won’t replace a laptop for high-end users – the limited on-board memory sees to that – but is perfect for creating the fanciest of home movies to put on YouTube.
The full Microsoft Office suite is available for free through the App Store (though an in-app purchase is necessary to edit files), and the huge touchscreen, combined with the new keyboard connector, makes working between them a breeze – whether it be with Apple’s minimalist release (£139) or the sturdier, backlit offering from Logitech (£109.99). Procreate (£ 4,49, app Store) offers a more creative outlet and now offers even greater precision with the release of Apple Pencil (£79). It only works with the Pro, and is sure to be a niche proposition, but it interacts with sensors under the screen to allow control that is sure to appeal to artists. Just look at what David Hockney achieved with a plain old iPad – it would be no surprise to see the next generation pushing the boundaries of what digital painting can achieve.
