    Besides the obvious slight resolution update obviously

    I think the main highlight this year is the 2x faster refresh rate, 120Hz up from 60Hz. This will make it crystal clear, even when scrolling. Current iPads/most screens you've likely ever looked at are a little blurry when scrolling due to their "slow" 60Hz refresh rate.

    It is all pretty obvious, but:
    1. Brighter screen, not sure if that makes it better, but certainly brighter if needed to find your way around in the dark
    2. Larger color range, definitely better. Human eyes can see about 12 million variations of color, so the 1 billion iPad Pro color display will be 988 million more than your human eyes can appreciate. How's that for awesome!
    3. Faster refresh, means better scrolling, betting animation, better everything
    4. Digital keyboard will be a little bit bigger and closer to full size keyboard, that is a good thing if you can type really fast using all of your fingers. Most of the noobs just use their thumbs now, so not sure if that is actually better, but I'm adding it here because I really like to type.

    If you're referring to real estate, I tend to think ~20% more is a fairly significant increase.

    As someone who often uses an iPad for handwritten notes outdoors during the day, the brightness increase and refresh rate increase (as relates to improved Apple Pencil tracking) are very welcome as well. Looking forward to getting my hands on one to see.

    HDR, 120hz, P3 colors, 50% brighter 600 nits, better ant-reflective coating. Just huge improvements all around.

    This. It's easy to underestimate the difference 0.8" makes in the diagonal.

    I'm pretty sure it was only the iMac that got support for 1 billion colors through 10-bit dithering.

    It's important to understand the difference between color range and color resolution. The human eye can see more vibrant reds, greens and blues than any current display can replicate. The human eye cannot discern between every color that even the original 2010 iPad could create. The DCI-P3 color space extends the color gamut (range) that the iPad can display. Your eyes can discern the more vibrant colors, but they can't discern every step between different colors. Does that make sense?

    Here is a sample graph that plots P3 against Adobe RGB and sRGB. The larger area is the range of human vision. P3 expands upon sRGB. Apple likely chose it because it's a bit more balanced than Adobe's green bias. We've still got a long ways to go to completely cover human vision.

    It's 17 percent. It's significant but not huge. Apples war on bezels looks like a skirmish and nothing big at this point

    Agreed, I was definitely anticipating a more "bezel'less" design. Must be saving that impression for September.
