iPad Pro 2 May Be Launching In March As ‘Better Than A Computer’ Apple Ads Make the Rounds
The iPad Pro 2 may be launching by next month if reports were true. This timetable is supported by the new Apple iPad Pro ads that promise a tablet that is "better than a computer." Other features also include an LTE facility for internet anywhere, Microsoft Word, and no viruses.
Apple has just released four new 15-seconds Apple iPad Pro ads that show just how powerful the Pro lineup is. Each ad begins with a tweet from real people about the iPad Pro 2 and these are placed in huge placards held by hired actors. The first ad shows a tweet that says the tablet is not even close to being a computer. It is then followed by a series of images that shows the device is faster than regular laptops, has LTE like the iPhone and a touchscreen that the Apple Pencil can write on.
The second Apple ad zeroes in on the LTE facility boasting that the iPad Pro 2 can "get internet anywhere." The third ad drops a word that surprised many for it spells Microsoft. The video shows that Microsoft Word can be downloaded and the tablet can do Word-related tasks. It even works with the Apple Pencil, a productivity tool that never once crossed Steve Job's mind.
The last Apple ad is a big jab at PC devices for the iPad Pro 2 will never get viruses ever. Observers say that Apple's new direction in its ad may be counter-productive to its marketing plans for the MacBook Pro computer. The Cupertino giant focuses on peddling its tablets rather than its computers possibly because the MacBook received bad reviews, CNet has learned. Recent events have also proven that even MacOS machines can be susceptible to malware.
Nonetheless, the iPad Pro 2 may well deliver on its Apple ads claims to be a supercomputer for it is reported to have a major upgrade in processor. It also has a new design that features edge-to-edge display according to MacRumors. There are also reports that newer and much-improved productivity accessories like the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard will also have an upgrade.
