At the ongoing Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, renowned tech giant Apple revealed a range of products and features for its devices. The 10.5-inch model is powered by an A10X CPU and 12-core GPU with a 120Hz refresh rate.

One caveat ... it appears you can only send money via iMessages to friends or family who own an Apple device.

Not any more. A few Reddit users testing the developer-only beta of iOS 11 discovered that the new customisable Control Center makes it easy to use a new tool called Screen Recorder.

With ProMotion, Apple Pencil is more responsive with a 20-millisecond latency for more fluid and natural drawing. In the new Messages app, Apple will create an end-to-end encryption of all messages with iCloud so that users don t have to delete their past messages anymore.

That extra size lets iPad Pros have a full-size on-screen keyboard as well as a full-sized Smart Keyboard (though the latter is still sold separately). The firm claims that the innovative chipset drives up to 40% better graphics performance and 30% more speeds as compared to the previous generation A9X.

iPad Pro can be used to shoot, edit and share pro-quality photos and videos.

The 10.5-inch model is equipped with a LED-backlit Multi-Touch Retina display with 2224-by-1668 resolution at 264 pixels per inch, a 12-megapixel camera, 7-megapixel FaceTime HD camera and four speakers.

Then there's the issue of an OS that uses mobile device app icons on a almost 13-inch screen, which would be fine if you could use a mouse to poke them open. The iPads will get new updated iOS 11 when it is rolled out. And while the announcement was certainly not a surprise, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system will be packed with "new experiences and hundreds of features".
