What is the iPad Pro 2?
This is the 2018 version of the iPad Pro; it is gorgeous and full of potential. It is one of the most powerful tablets that has come into the market for a while. When it comes to design Apple shows that it is still on top of its game regarding industrial design.

iPad Pro 2 Design
The design template that Apple uses has changed considerably over time. It has become a lot more curvaceous as compared to the previous flat sides and angular design. However, the iPad Pro 2 is a bit of a throwback to the time of the iPhone 5 design. The soft lines and curved edges of the previous iPads have been replaced by a flat back, harsh edges, and curved corners.
The only part of this device that is a little bit off-putting is the scraggly antenna that can be found wound around the sides and the back. This is very prominent on both the LTE/4G as well as the Wi-Fi option. While they may be necessary to ensure proper reception, they are not a pleasant sight to see. The colors provided are space grey and silver that are subtle and classy. As per the recent trend, the iPad Pro also aims to reduce bezel and has pushed the display right to the edge.
iPad Pro 2 Screen
The iPad Pro may just be the best product released yet regarding the display. This is due to the new ProMotion feature that allows the screen to switch refresh rates intellectually. Games look smoother, and the Apple Pencil works more fluidly. Also, Apples True Tone tech adjusts the panels colors according to the surrounding. Apple has also decided to use an LCD screen as opposed to an OLED one for the iPad Pro line.
