    I’m watching it.
    Right this moment they’re speaking about the iPad.

    It has a very thin bezel all around with no home button.

    The new gestures that came to the iPad Pro with iOS 12 are used to their full capabilities on the new iPad Pro models.

    It has an 8 core CPU. Graphics are 1,000 times faster. Storage is up to 1TB. Both models come with USB-C. You can now charge your iPhone from your iPad Pro.

    They’ve just announced the new Apple Pencil. It attaches magnetically, pairs automatically and charges wirelessly.

    There have been rumours about these features. That has been expected.

    Have you noticed that there’s no sign of Phil Schiller at today’s event?

    The USB C port has been expected as well. I like the fact that it’s possible to charge the iPhone when it’s connected to the iPad.

    Face ID works in every position on the new iPad Pro. I’m wondering when they will bring this feature to the iPhone, where you can use Face ID in portrait mode only.
