Earlier today, Apple - the tech company that created the world-famous iPhone and iPad - has revealed their latest model of iPad. The 2018 version of iPad Pro is a very good device, with better specifications than the predecessor.

The 2018 iPad Pro features smaller bezels, with the Home button removed. Just like the iPhone X, you will operate the device through gestures controls. Face ID is also implemented, making this the first iPad with Face ID.

About the specifications, this new version of iPad Pro features A12X Bionic CPU. The new CPU is said to be 3 times faster than the predecessor. The screen is Liquid Retina, which is the same kind with iPhone XR. This iPad Pro also have multiple versions with 64GB/256GB/512GB/1TB of storage; 2 screens options of 11 and 12,9 inch. Both devices will have a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 7MP front-facing camera. Another drastic change on the new iPad Pro is the removal of Lightning port, with the regular USB-C connector as the replacement.

And Apple is the next mobile devices maker that compared their products with a gaming console, after Huawei.

When the new iPad Pro was shown during the event, vice president of hardware engineering from Apple, Mr. John Ternus had compared the device with... an XBox One S.

Our iPad Pro have the graphics power on par with an Xbox One, albeit 94% smaller

According to him, "the iPad Pro delivers Xbox One S-class graphics performance in a product that's 94% smaller. And there's no AC cord required."

Learning about this, Phil Spencer, Microsoft's gaming chief only laugh and comment on Twitter that "I'm definitely encouraging a future where there are no borders between devices, as mobile gamers can play the same games with console gamers."

Of course, at the moment, tablets and mobile devices are not the ideal gaming devices, due to specifications and the number of games available. But in the long run, with more and more mobile devices have the power on par with consoles and PC, a future where we have an all-in-one device might happen soon enough.
