Apple CEO Tim Cook believes that the PC era is coming to an end.
During a special iPad Pro event held in the Covent Garden store, Apple’s chief executive talked about various topics, including Apple TV, Apple Watch sales and encryption, and he mentioned PCs as well.
“I think if you’re looking at a PC, why would you buy a PC anymore? No really, why would you buy one?” Mr. Cook told the journalists.
The iPad Pro will be available for online purchase starting from November 11 in more than 40 countries, and later this week, this 12.9-inch tablet will also be available in the stores.
There are three variants of the iPad Pro, and you can buy 32 GB Wi-Fi only model for $799, 128 GB Wi-Fi only costs for $949, and the most expensive one from this series is a 128 GB model that supports Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity and it costs $1,079. The additional accessories are Smart Keyboard ($169), and Apple Pencil ($99).
“Yes, the iPad Pro is a replacement for a notebook or a desktop for many, many people. They will start using it and conclude they no longer need to use anything else, other than their phones,” Cook added.
