Apple on Tuesday hosted a special Occasion to unveil its latest iPad Pro 2018 range, alongside Upgraded MacBook Air and Mac mini models.The new iPad Pro models now feature a USB Type-C connector port, a first for Apple’s range of iOS apparatus. On the other hand, the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions also forego the 3.5millimeter headphone jack much like Apple’s previous few iPhone variants. For audio, Apple has released a USB-C to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter on its site. Furthermore, Apple in the event announced that users may charge their mobiles with the iPad Pro.
While the decision to remove the 3.5millimeter headphone jack was not declared at the launch event , fans knew that they had it coming. Apple removed the sound jack from its iPhone range back in 2016 using the iPhone 7$33,750 and iPhone 7 Plus. Now, as a result of a sleeker design on the iPad Pro range, the 3.5millimeter jack becomes the older sailor thrown off the boat. To compensate for customers who want to experience wired audio, Apple has released a USB-C into 3.5millimeter Headphone Jack Adapter on its website in a cost of $9 (roughly Rs. 660).
On the other hand, the newest MacBook Air keeps the headset jack, alongside two additional Thunderbolt 3/ USB Type-C ports. To compensate for it, the technology giant has introduced its brand new USB-C to SD Card Reader at a cost of $39 (around Rs. 2,900).
Coming back to the brand new iPad Pro versions, Apple declared an unusual feature whereby the new models may be used as a power lender to control your iPhones or, subsequently, any smartphone. While not explicitly said, the iPad Pro may not have the ability to bill another iPad Pro or something with a larger battery including laptops like the MacBook Air, The Verge speculates. We’ll have to wait for the very first reviews to come in to confirm this. To charge a iPhone with the iPad Pro , however, you will have to buy a USB-C to Lightning Adapter contemplating the iPhone still gets the Lightning interface for charging and data transfer.
