Leaked renders show the iPhone X running iOS 11

Now the big question is, "If you already have an iPad, should you upgrade or not?" Well, in iOS 11, you'll be able to turn them off completely via a simple toggle in the Settings app. However, Apple made some significant steps last week to reinvigorate the iPad with new features in the upcoming iOS 11. This is what Apple fans have been waiting for.

Apple also unveiled a 10.5-inch iPad Pro and announced Apple Pay compatibility for Messages, meaning that it will be possible to send money to friends and family. The iPad Pro's True Tone display, which debuted in the 9.7in model, automatically adapts colour and hue to suit the light of a given environment and with the iPad Pro's anti-reflective, oleophobic coating keeping glare and fingerprint smudges to a minimum, I was able to play games on a café patio, write emails underground and read articles in the back of a auto as it passed in and out of shade just as comfortably as if I was sat in the office.

iOS 11 is available now to beta testers, but the full version is expected to be rolled out in September. It's clearly an attempt to bridge the user experience gap between a Surface tablet and an iPad Pro. Can they change the equation? Keeping your messages in iCloud also lets you save space on your Mac. In the meantime, I can tell you the hardware is solidly improved. On top of the sleeve, there is a holder to store your Apple Pencil. The screens on the new iMac models are 43 percent brighter than before, and they now add Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connectors to the existing USB 3 ports. "You'll never see [Apple] use the argument that [the iPad Pro is] the end all and the be all".

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro even has the same 6.1mm thickness of the 9.7-inch model, but it is slightly wider and taller due to its bigger screen.

The worst part of all of this is that with the new iOS, Apple will be ending support for older devices, which would include the iPhone 5 and 5c, plus the fourth-generation iPad.

The latest renders highlight what the new control center will look like on and edge to edge screen, and other features such as Apple's new Home Kit and the Do Not Disturb function

There's only so much manufacturers can do to update a tablet these days beyond increasing the specs, as the use case for these devices hasn't altered much over the years, beyond them now being able to serve as pseudo-tablet replacements with the addition of a keyboard.

"These are by far the most powerful iPads we've ever created with the world's most advanced displays featuring ProMotion, the powerful new A10X Fusion chip and the advanced camera system of iPhone 7". Both devices come with an impressive set of specifications and features. It's also pricey for a tablet, according to the site. It also weighs close to the same as the 437g 9.7-inch iPad Pro, give or take, at 469g.

Running Intel Xeon processors in 8-, 10-, or 18-core configurations, the iMac Pro will be capable of up to 22 teraflops of performance power.

When playing video things shouldn't be that much different to normal, so don't worry that your movies will look weird - the dynamic refresh rate is there to save battery as much as anything. The WiFi models start at Rs 52,900 for 64GB storage variant.
