New ad campaign...

Apple Confronts A Negative With A Campaign Of Positives In New iPad Pro Campaign
http://www.forbes.com/sites/willburns/2 ... -campaign/
There's something refreshing about a brand that freely admits its greatest shortcoming publicly. Apple is publicly admitting that it's iPad Pro is not a computer, isn't trying to be a computer, and, once we are disarmed with this admission, Apple hits us with reasons why that's a good thing.

Here are three of the spots. Don't worry, they are short and sweet.

Better Than A Computer :15



Don't Hunt For Wi-Fi :15



No PC Viruses :15

Commentary: Printing on, say, the office machine can be embarrassing. So why not buy an iPad Pro and preserve your personal life?

Bottom line is, they really don't care about annoying people by changing prices to reflect currency...
What company in the world would care? None lol. Why would any company willingly want to lose money?

Apple introduces a redesigned 10.5-inch iPad Pro starting at $649.99 USD
Redesigned device gives us a full-size onscreen keyboard and lots of other stuff.
https://arstechnica.com/apple/2017/06/a ... -ipad-pro/

- designed to replace the current 9.7-inch tablet that debuted back in March of 2016
- fit a 10.5-inch screen into a body that's not all that different from the 9.7-inch tablet's
- device's display will use a 120Hz refresh rate instead of the default 60Hz.
- iPad Pro can also dynamically adjust its display refresh rate to fit its native content refresh rate, like with 48Hz movie
- bumped the base model iPad Pro capacity to 64GB and goes from there to 256GB and 512GB
- comes with a six-core A10X SOC
- GPU, according to Apple, is 40 percent faster than its predecessor and features 12 cores

"The 10.5-inch iPad also includes a bunch of the other features that separate the smaller iPad Pro from the entry-level $329 iPad: an improved four-speaker sound system, a laminated "wide color" display that improves contrast and expands the available color gamut, a True Tone display, a better camera, and support for the Smart Connector and Apple Pencil."

looks good but not in a hurry to buy a $900 tablet when my $500 Air 2 still works fine for casual use.

I'm really interested in getting the 10.5" version, but I won't get it if it only have 2GB of RAM.

Noticed the iPad Pro cellular doesn't support band 66 LTE

DISAPPOINTING. I hope this doesn't mean that new iPhone won't support Freedom's LTE
