Wired, Nov. 15, 2017—A new generation of tablet with a cobalt exterior looks like nothing else on the market, but for $1.5 million, the $3,000 iPad Pro has a lot going for it.
And it doesn’t even have a screen.
But there’s more to the iPad Pro than its screen.
A lot of that comes from its design, which is a bit unconventional.
Here’s a closer look at how the $1 billion iPad Pro is made.
It has a 5.5-inch, 1280×800 LCD display with Gorilla Glass 3, but it’s also got a curved glass front that curves back toward you.
It looks a lot like the one you’d find on the iPad Air 2, but this time it’s curved, not flat.
There’s no glass front.
Instead, it has a glass slab that wraps around the sides, creating a “sandwich” design.
The iPad Pro’s design and the way it’s constructed make it one of the most unique devices we’ve seen, but its price tag could be a little intimidating.
You can pick up a $1 million iPad Pro for $3.99, or it can be yours for $2,299.
Apple is offering a bundle deal that includes a $2 million iPad Air 4, a $200 iPad Mini 4, an Apple Watch, and an Apple TV set for $99.99.
And, for a limited time, Apple is selling the iPad for just $349.99 for the new 5.7-inch iPad Pro, the first 5.6-inch model to hit the market.
The price is just $299.99 over the regular $1-million price point.
If you’re willing to shell out a bit more cash, the iPad will be available for $299 over its normal $1 price point starting November 18.
If that’s not enough to get you hooked on the new iPad Pro and you want to try out its curved glass screen, you can pick it up for $399.99 at Apple’s online store.
The device is powered by an Intel Core i7-6900U processor and 4GB of RAM.
It also has 64GB of internal storage, but that’s all it comes with.
The front of the iPad is covered with a metal back plate, and the device’s USB Type-C port is hidden under a metal cover that slides on top of the tablet.
It comes with a 3,200mAh battery, an IP67 water-resistant rating, and a USB Type C port.
A MicroSD slot and an SD card slot are located on the front.
The display on the back is 1080p with a 1,366×768 resolution.
It’s made of metal, and Apple claims that it’s stronger and more durable than aluminum, but the device is thin and lightweight.
The 5.9-inch display has a 16:9 aspect ratio and weighs just 6.9 ounces.
The overall dimensions are 4.2 inches by 3.3 inches by 0.6 inches.
The battery on the device measures 5,000mAh and can last up to a day of use.
You’ll also find a 5MP rear camera with dual flash capabilities, a 4MP front camera, a headphone jack, and 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The $1 and $2 price tags are the same for the two iPad Pro models, but you’ll pay $99 more for the $349 bundle.
If your favorite brand of iPad has a price tag like this, there’s no telling how long it will last.
If not, expect to be shelling out a few hundred bucks for this gorgeous iPad Pro.
